I was glad to discover the Muir Lodge Motel. I have moved to Arcata, CA, on the northern coast, and have to take the bus to Martinez to catch trains. Because of the bus schedule, it looks like I will occasionally have to stay overnight to make connections. After extensive searching on the internet, I picked the Muir Lodge Motel... More

Clean,quiet and friendly! What more could you ask? Lots of nice touches, too. Complimentary bottled water, good sized fridge, iron and ironing board. I was very comfortable here. Did I mention clean? Very nice, I would stay here again.

The Lodge was very clean and the owner was very polite and accommodating. I like that we were able to park our in front of our room. Shopping and restaurants were walking distance.Over all I give the lodge a thumbs up all the way. GEORGE GARZA

We chose this motel based on the reviews from Trip Advisor. From the outside this motel doesn't look like anything fancy, however the rooms are beautiful! They have dark wood floors and lovely embroidered duvets. There is a refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer, and an iron/board in the room. The mattress had a pillow top and had to be... More

To a chance and glad we did. We like to support small business as much as possible. Only one complaint was that I was pulling a boat and the parking was not sufficient. As some of the reviews have stated, parking is somewhat small. Its ok if everyone drives small vehicles. Rooms are clean, staff was polite, helpful and professional.... More

We were just a little leary of this one because it wasn't a big brand hotel but it was quite and peaceful there. They took real great care of us while we were there. They have just remodeled rooms and the young couple at the desk couldn't have been nicer. I was pleasantly surprised in that they weren't a big... More

Price: I was aiming for a hotel below $100 in Ca and this was it. Unfortunately, I wasn't given a receipt at checkout because I was told that a receipt couldn't be given. Parking: As the pictures show, parking is outside of your room. The parking area is small. Location: I don't remember the location that well, but I chose... More

Muir Lodge Motel in Martinez, CA was a great place to stay! Very clean rooms, complimentary bottles of water each day in the room, very reasonable prices. They are remodeling some rooms & putting new furniture in - very nice. The managers were very hospitable, and we think they deserve a better star rating! My husband & I stayed there... More

My partner and I stayed here six months ago and decided we liked the property. Unfortunately that night there was a group of drunk college students in the room next to us. The next morning, when it was time for checkout, we let the management know and they were very apologetic and asked us to call them next time instead... More

This is a two-star hotel so expectations were quite low, but definitely exceeded. It met two fundamental goals of ours. First, after a long drive from Southern California for a weekend in wine country, it was very inexpensive and allowed us to have a easy launch point for our destination in the Napa Valley the next morning. And secondly, it... More
