Over priced, didn't honor Internet price. Terrible condition with nasty carpet, peeling walls, can't even put a real fitted sheet on the bed...just a flat sheet that doesn't stay in place and doesn't cover the 50 year old mattress. Not worth a single star. Terrible.

This inexpensive motel has just been renovated and appears very clean and brand new. A big improvement from last year. The price and location make this a goos deal. A new coffee shop across the street is another plus.

Had stayed the year before at Travelodge Strawberry (Mill Valley). San Rafael location was as good if not better. It was near an event we were attending. Clean, well-appointed room. Nice bathroom. Breakfast foods, newspapers available in the a.m. Bonus: a fair-trade coffee shop across the street.

I would NEVER stay at the San Rafael Travelodge again. We had to get at least 4 sets of keys for the 8 days we were there. The right curtain was broken, so the curtains wouldn't close. The chairs were dirty and stained. The ice machine was broken the entire stay. Breakfast didn't have juice or creamed chees many mornings.... More
