I was disappointed in the property for several reasons (2 night stay): no parking available, breakfast was extremely limited (no protein choices or fruit), bathroom lightbulb was burnt out, bathroom wallpaper was brown and peeling off the walls, lineoleum needed to be replaced, kitchen had no dishes, etc.-could not use, not able to use in room safe.

Stopped at the Marinwood in late June with no reservations. Found the staff friendly. The rooms were modern and up to date. Large comfortable bed with flat screen TV. Long dresser to lay stuff out on. Perfect for two. Perfect location, reasonable priced. Would reccommend to anyone. I lost my keys and they made another one without a fee.

Large, clean, quiet rooms at a great price. Our host, Dep, was gracious and very welcoming. I am disabled and our host made sure that I had access to everything I needed. It is at a great location and I felt very safe. I will always stay here whenever I come to Marin.

The motel is in Novato which we found well placed and good value as a centre to visit Napa, Sonoma, Sausalito, San Francisco Muir woods and more. The rooms were a very generous size with a walk in wardrobe and very good size, well equipped bathroom. There was a fridge and microwave. There is a laundry for use of guests....

I was very pleasantly surprised with this Inn. The outside was plain and price was a fraction of nearby hotels. But once in the room, all was upgraded. Had fridge, micro, safe, granite sink and shower. I was very pleased. Only complaint was bedding seemed older and worn. Im giving this 5 stars compared to others in its price range....

We came here last minute after a poorly planned day out on the first day of our trip, they checked us in quickly and were quite friendly. Our room unfortunately was situated up a flight of stairs without a ramp or elevator, so lugging bags up those was a hassle. Most of the rooms however are at ground level to...

Nice place - booked it later one night and got a good price. Parking was right under our room. Stairs to go up to it, had some slight trouble with the door but it was ok. It has been updated - with nice bath sink, and comfy king Bed. Vending Machine out of bottled water, but store within driving distance.
