Want to go to a place away from the big city? This is the place, Country roads and Mountains scenery. Close to Graton Resort & Casino. This Hotel is a older Hotel, but it is nice and clean with a very good Steak House in front of the hotel.

Hubby and I went here for an overnight "stay-cation" on a hot summer night. We had not been here for several years, and were surprised how much we'd forgotten about the niceties of this place. Front desk efficient and friendly. Inn Marin is a vintage one-story block motel which the on-site owners have continued to make charming inside and out.... More

We checked into our room in the evening of June 22nd, 2016. The bathroom floor was covered in water. The regular maintenance guy was off and they sent someone to look at the toilet, as that was the issue. He left to get someone else to look. So, we aren't able to unpack or get comfortable after a long day.... More

The Inn of Marin is a great location when traveling or staying for a week or two. Close to SF, to beaches and beautiful hikes. Walking distance to grocery stores and many restaurants. A pool and hot tub on site to make your day or night wonderful and relaxing. Washing and a work out room on site. The room is... More

My room was clean. The service at the hotel leaves something to be desired. The hotel was aware that I was flying into SFO and would need to be picked up at the Marin Airporter shuttle drop off in Novato/Hamilton. They were told this on more than one occasion and should have had that in their notes for the day's... More

Just fifteen minutes by freeway from the Golden Gate Bridge, the Inn Marin in Novato, CA, is a bargain. Just off the 101 freeway at Ignacio Blvd./Entrada Drive, the Inn Marin offerscomfortable high quality rooms within lovely grounds, an excellent restaurant and bar (try their signature Pineapple Mojito) in an early California-Spanish motif, and a good sized swimming pool. The... More

We recently spent three nights here as part of a group of seven couples traveling in wine country and the Bay area. We had a great experience. Based on TripAdvisor recommendations, we all requested (and got) rooms away from the highway. Accommodations were clean and quiet. The staff was very helpful and polite. We had a fabulous dinner by the... More

We were in the area for a wedding. Because of a local event many other places were fully booked. Although we were feeling lucky we found a place to stay, we were not sure what to expect. This is an older property quite close to the highway. We were initially worried about noise from the road. Our room was toward... More

Inn Marin is affordable and comfortable. The AC in our room was a bit noisy, but kept us very cool all night. We liked the easy access to our room, and the side door that leads out to the pool/garden. We sat at one of the tables in the garden area and enjoyed cocktails and snacks. Inn Marin has a... More
