Although there really are no frills, if you like motels this one is centrally located off the highway and a short drive either south toward Sausalito, east toward Sonoma or West toward the beach. The town of Novato is very cute and an exit or two away. It is certainly less expensive than the upscale Hotels and B&Bs in Marin.... More

I recently took my Mother on a whirlwind weekend trip to Novato and San Francisco. She had a friend who was having a wedding nearby and Inn Marin looked like the best choice from Expedia. Approaching the property, I was quite concerned as it is extremely close to 101, a major freeway. Had we gotten a room facing the freeway,... More

What a pleasant surprise. Our room was recently updated, spacious , immaculately clean and pet friendly. The staff was extremely helpful and in an area where accommodation s are very expensive our room was reasonably priced. The grounds are beautiful and it is very quiet as well which is surprising as it is close to the freeway. I have lived... More

This Inn is similar to many motels my family and I stayed in in the 60"s on our cross country road trip. It is clean and there is great access since most rooms if not all are on the ground level so easy to unload and load the car. We only stayed overnight. The breakfast was fine, make your own... More

We recently called Inn Marin our home away from home during a major remodel at our house. Their hospitality was well beyond the price range in a resort like setting. Located very conveniently off Highway 101 but at the same time set back away from the hustle and bustle. The accommodations we're excellent and comfortable for our entire family including... More

I have stayed in several hotels in Novato. Marin Inn is by far the best. I love room 122. It is a end unit with the courtyard view. The rooms are clean enough to eat off the floor! I am usually a Hilton or Marriott gal but by far the Marin Inn has stole my heart. Yes the bathroom is... More

We were visiting relatives in Novato and decided to stay close-by. Arrived mid-afternoon and found out about the Happy Hour at Rickeys, located on site. Tried Long Island Tea (very good!) and decided to stay for dinner before calling it a night. Had the Hanger Steak (awesome!). Very quiet (unit 126), in amongst the garden area. Updated from a typical... More

Stayed here only one night but immediately struck by how clean it was. Very satisfied and will probably try again. Continental breakfast included waffles, hard-boiled eggs, cereal, oatmeal, coffee, plenty of teas. Included a Keurig coffee maker, refrigerator, and teas in the room. Comfy.

Well done! I have been staying at your Inn for over a week now as I just relocated and am looking for a place to rent. Feels like a boutique style hotel. This place is warm, safe, inviting, great for pets, clean and the staff extremely professional and friendly. Thank you for making my first few weeks in Marin amazing... More

I found this hotel by searching online for hotels in Novato. We had a early morning job at the Buck Institute and needed to be close to our job. Room had a very comfortable bed and loved the decor. Hector at the front desk was very helpful and professional. Definitely would recommend Inn Marin!
