I have seen this motel many times while working in the North Bay area. I finally stayed there when my normal hotel chain was sold out. I got the last two rooms, one being the Hiway room and the other Jacuzzi Room. Since it is a old school motel parking in front of room is nice. The back parking area... More

This place looks cute / quirky and staff is friendly. We rolled in a bit late with two tired kiddos. Lobby is very inviting. Our room was towards the back and not noisy even though the Inn is very close to freeway. On surface, the rooms appeared fine. Price was a little steep for what you get (just shy of... More

Yes it has been much colder than we are all use to. I think we hit 34 degrees on that night. It was 70 degrees just a week ago. Wow what a change, I am so sorry that your room was cold. We staff our Front Desk 24 hours a day so we always have someone on property to assist... More

This is an older hotel but great value. The location is convenient but a little strange when you drive in, right of 101. Nice rooms around a courtyard with large trees. A lot more character than with modern hotels. Had bathrobes, comfortable bed, but no microwave. Complementary breakfast was surprisingly good.

Best option in Novato. I have stayed here and at Marriott in Novato and Inn Marin's value is way better. Paid $160 less than Marriott and was happy with the hotel. Fun little setup and the staff was very friendly. Hotel was clean and efficient. Good location to everything and did not hear the highway.

We stayed in a room in the back as this inn is adjacent a freeway ....but it was plenty quiet back there. Quant digs...fireplace lobby...nice continental breakfast. We stayed in a room with 2 double beds...cozy for this couple. Encourage it's continuing to update..Not much in toiletries except shower wall shampoo/conditoner and bar soap at sink. Easy access to Marin... More

I stayed here whilst travelling through California. The room was spacious and well decorated with lovely furniture. Robes were provided. The only downfall were the beds. They seemed very well-used, sank in the middle and made a lot of creaking noises. Breakfast was buffet style with lots of options to choose from. I would stay here again.

We are local to the area and were surprised when our daughter chose the Inn Marin at which to hold her wedding. She made a great choice! The Inn Marin easily accommodated us for the wedding facilities (outdoor ceremony + dinner, indoor dancing), rooms, and catering. All were very, very good. We stayed 2 nights. Most of our rooms faced... More

Really liked the women at the front desk. The room was great - very clean, all the amenities, pergo flooring (great for folks with allergies) and remodeled bathrooms. Even though the Inn faces the 101 freeway, the rooms are set behind so were quiet. TV had ESPN channels, the continental breakfast was good, the sparkling good-sized pool was clean, grounds... More

This was our first time ever at this adorable hotel and we couldn't have left any happier! The cost of the room was middle of the road, but it felt like a 'high end' hotel with the amenities that were thoughtfully placed. Everything from a 'Keurig' coffee maker with select coffees and teas, to the shampoo and conditioner dispensers in... More

I was trying to book a night and the person answering me was yelling at me and telling I didn't have a right to ask about rooms or prices and clicked on me twice and told em not to call back. Horrable people, can't even call to book.

OMG!!!! It is with my sincerest apology that you had this experience. I wonder if you dialed the wrong #. We work very hard in screening our employees and hire nice people. It is more important for us to hire someone with a smile than have previous work experience, because we can train people how to do tasks, but it... More
