“Great Hotel for location, short or long term, service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

This hotel is has a great location with easy 20 min access to San Francisco, 2 - 3 min from the largest TARGET in California, 5 min. from Central San Rafael, and surrounding areas.

This hotel, while being a budget oriented, long tern stay hotel, is one of the best in which I have stayed in my 15 yrs of travelling and living "on-site" for projects. The Staff is professional and attentive, whenever there is a need. My room is roomy, and gets a thorough once a week clean-up. The maintenance and operations of this facility is as good as I have seen, and I can always count on Debbie Estrada and her staff to provide.

I have been staying at this facility since April 2013, and it is now November 2013. I have found the stay and the facility with the hot tub, indoor pool, and workout gym to be very comfortable.

I will be staying at this facility through next year, as my project needs me.

Room Tip: 4th floor - Even Numbers will provide a nice view of the bay, and great sunrises.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We stayed here on business and we were lucky to get a room that had a terrific view to the ocean. We stayed here once before and had a room facing the road which was not so great! So ask for a room with a view! The room itself is spacious and clean but what lets it down is the very uncomfortable bed which is very hard. They put some sort of cover over the mattress which comes undone during the night and makes sleeping impossible. I would stay here again but for no more than one night.

This was a perfect spot for us. I had a Reunion in Sleepy Hollow/ San Francisco explore/ and Sir Francis Drake to the ocean. It was perfect AND they take dogs. The Shoreline trail is 2 blocks away and was perfect for the morning walk....so beautiful.

Room Tip: w/ a dog we were 1st floor and it was very safe and handy for those 2 am pee breaks. btw..BYO ice...

Just stayed there for two weeks during a consulting visit to the area. I had a room on the 3rd floor with a view of the Bay. Walked along the Bay Trail every evening after long day of work. Rooms are clean and well maintained. The place made this work visit very enjoyable.

For the price and quality, this was an excellent hotel to stay in! The staff was very accommodating and friendly! Debbie helped us out by loaning office supplies and copying documents that were needed for a conference. Any small issues we had were quickly taken care of by the attentive staff. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Higher floors have less noise

Our stay at the hotel was excellent. The rooms were clean and well suited for a multi-day business trip. The staff was friendly & extremely helpful. We checked in late in the evening after a full day of traveling and then setup for a conference. The rooms were ready, the check-in was smooth and the hotel was quiet. So we enjoyed a good night sleep and were ready for the days ahead. The breakfast station was simple, but covered the basic needs for a quick breakfast. So we headed off for the day with a good cup of coffee and something in our stomachs to get us going. Overall a great place to stay. I will be back.

First 3 nights we were in a room with noisy refrigerator, 4th night we moved to bay view room. It was excellent - great view, clean, and quiet. With cooking facility, we got to eat homemade food every day. I was able to finish a critical project on time by connecting to office thru Wi-Fi.
Friendly front desk staff - Debbie, Teresa, Sam, Tammie, and Douglas made our trip wonderful. Teresa always gives people warm welcome; she gave us a homey feeling.
