I stayed here with my husband for a weekend of San Francisco tourist fun, and wine tasting in Napa Valley. We had to find a way to do the trip on a budget, since both SF and Napa have pretty high price tags for most activities and hotels. We absolutely loved it!! The hotel has a really cute, almost bungalow... More

Pretty basic accommodations. Seems like a family run place. Friendly. Seems like a mid-range hotel fading into the budget hotel class. Bed was above average for comfort. Safe in room. Satellite TV. Large room. Marble in bathroom, good hot shower. Fridge in room, but mine did not have a kitchen. Free parking and wifi. Breakfast is sparse, bagged Danishes, frozen... More

The room and property was clean and well maintained. Though the Inn is next to the highway the room was quite and we heard no traffic noise. The front desk was very friendly and informative when we checked in and housekeeping always kept us supplied with fresh towels in a clean room! We also liked the hotel for its convenient... More

Upon checking in, the front desk clerk was friendly. After that, we were not very happy with anything else about Marinwood. I travel with disinfectant wipes and always do a quick clean up upon entering the room. The wipes were dirty. The bed linens looked wrinkled, which was very disconcerting. One bar of soap, so you had to carry back... More

The room was clean and quiet, even though it is near the freeway. This is a facility in which to rest for the night, not a place to hang out. it has free wifi, large flat-screen TV, refrigerator, and microwave. The in-room coffee maker provides one cup of decafe, and one cup of regular coffee. The free breakfast offers pre-packaged... More

We're not fussy, but we enjoy comfortable ambience. It's here. It's delightful. Location is exactly what we desired: calm, quiet, super easy access from 101/Redwood Highway, and yet close enough to San Fran, where we're headed for medical appointments. Friendly front desk guy. Very relational and helpful. Beds? Comfortable, true queens. Only regret is that I neglected to realize there's... More

Room was clean. There were parking spots for each room. The hotel is located close to the highway and plenty of restaurants and shopping. The free breakfast was on par with other budget hotels offering microwaved eggs and sausage, coffee, bagels, toast and cereal. My only complaint is that instead of lamps, there were overhead reading lights that shine right... More

The floors weren't vacuumed well enough, the tub had hair in it. The pillows were horrible. The kitchenette in our suite had incomplete dishes which rendered it useless. There was only enough coffee pods left in the room for one person. It felt extremely cheap. It wasn't a horrible place but for the price you would expect better. The beds... More
