I stayed here for one night in July. The pro's are it's very affordable for the area, the location is great, and the staff was courteous. Unfortunately for me the cons outweighed the pro's... A very dirty property, both outside the room and inside. The corners of my room had dirt/dust piled up. The parking was not great. Looked like... More

Very convenient for Northern Marin County, along with rooms that fit whatever needs you have, such as 3-4 guests. Also, excellent service by the maids, maintenance workers, front-desk personel, as well as the manager!

Room was a decent price and the sheets were clean. That's the only good thing. Yhe remote for the tv was so dirty that when I cleaned it my rag turned black. Our feet were black from the floors. They charge you for the ice machine. The walls in the bathroom are dirty with heaven knows what. Breakfast is muffins... More

I want to start this review by stating that the staff working here are courteous and helpful. However, this stay has been one of the two worst lodging experiences I have EVER experienced. Problems--internet really doesn't work in rooms--really a problem as I am here on business. No working plug in bathtub, litter all over the place. The owner of... More

If You Want To Save Yourself A Headache Do Not Stay In This Hotel. Absolutely WOST HOTEL In California. Its Filthy and The Staff is Extremely Rude. They Do Not Care About Guest And They Will Be Glad To STEAL YOUR MONEY. The Manager has no Integrity. This Place NEEDS TO BE SHUT DOWN.

I pulled in at 2am and the check-in experience was fine but I didn't really look at the room until the morning because I just fell asleep as soon as I got into the room. The next morning I noticed that there was paint and chunks of the door missing, presumably from someone trying to wedge the door open. The... More

A few in the office are rude, which is not the first thing we look for as paying guests, right? But alot of evenings there's a nice man there that's a pleasure to deal with. The rude staff, though, tends to keep the decent guests away and what's left over is a hoodlum-rich guest population.

My partner and decided to stay here a well needed rest. We had stayed here before, and the thought the rooms were adequate and reasonably pleasant. That was not the case this visit.

To be blunt I wasn't expecting much, but needing a much needed mental margarita, my husband and I decided this place would do. Well....surprise, surprise,surprise. We had one of the best nights sleep we'd had in a while. I suggest you bring your own towels, the ones provided are best used for exfoliation....they're a bit "brisk". Overall I say go... More

Thank you for the kind review. I'm glad we meet some of the more important expectations and I'll see what we can do about getting a better selection of towels. Should you return you may always call the front desk and request a new set of towels. Maybe you got an unusually rough set,,, Too many construction workers not staying... More
