“Tasteful update”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We had a wonderful experience at the Lodge at Tiburon. We stayed in Room 205, which is a corner room. It was large and spacious. It is near the elevator, but we didn't hear it, so it wasn't a problem. The bed was super comfy and the colors in the room were soothing. It is clearly an old motel that has had a facelift, but it's been tastefully done and is in a great location for the price. The staff were all very friendly.

Room Tip: Room 205 is very spacious. From the balcony you can see the rooftop lounge, firepit, and pool area.

Upon our arrival, we were greeted by a very friendly front desk (we were here for my Brother and his lovely Wife's Wedding).The rooms are very clean and decorated very nicley. The restaurant and Happy Hour were very nice, heated lamps and great atmosphere. The parking is a bit confusing. The Lodge is walking distance to everything in downtown Tiburon so its perfect tp leave your car parked at their parking lot and enjoy the city by walking. Would go back for sure.

Great to have outside gas heaters throughout the beautiful seating and eating areas that surround the lobby. Beautiful, spacious and tastefully decorated room. Receptionist Ian's hospitality was genuine and natural. At the Chaminade, you could tell that their attitude was, "We're going to shmoozh you because that's what you paid for." Disgusting! The bed was comfortable: I had a great night of rest. A couple of negatives. The walls are relatively thin, such that I was quite aware of others' intimate moments. 2nd, there was no Bible in the room.

A delightful respite a few short miles from the bustling city. The room was clean, fresh and nicely appointed, the grounds were beautifully maintained with delightful fireplaces scattered throughout for sitting in the evening with a glass of wine and just chilling. In the morning we had a very good breakfast in the cafe and set out to explore Tiburon. The location of the lodge makes it a perfect jumping off point for any of the activities, from using the rental bikes they have available and riding a circle route through the beautiful Peninsula Tiburon is located on.

I stayed here for two days on the Living Social deal. It was a good deal which included two nights, $40 wine credit, and $50 food credit at the restaurant. I like the location. I wish there were better places to eat near the lodge but I was not too far away from Mill Valley.

This used to be our favorite hotel for weekend getaways in the Marin - good location, well appointed, friendly staff, and yes, under prior management, no pet charge. Unfortunately that is no longer the case. The hotel now charges a whopping $75 for a pet stay - a rate that I consider more pet-discouraging than pet friendly. Our dog is a part of the family and weekend outings with him are a big draw to get our boys away from their electronics. I recently bought a deal for this hotel that I had to withdraw from after discovering the new pet charge. Though I understand certain amount of pet fee may be necessary, at this price I am afraid I will have to look elsewhere.

Dear butterflygrove,

I am sorry to read, that you no longer favor our hotel for you and your family. We are very much involved with our pet owners community, and do our utmost best to accomodate every one of them. Charging a pet fee is a common standard amongst hotels. We encourage pet visits as much as those guests without pets, but do need to ensure our accomodations remain in pristine order. I would love to discuss this issue with you directly, so feel free to reach out to me when time permits.

Warmest Regards,

Sietse Nabben

We stayed 2 nights and it was average. Not good, not bad. Probably won't go back though. It's in lovely Tiburon and a short drive from San Francisco.
The hotel looks a lot better from the outside. Average from the inside.
