Stayed here before. Great dog place with large grass area with dog stations. Not ordinary look the same as so many motels. Funky with character. Has charm and warmth. Parking right in front of my room every night.

While it is convenient located, staff and the owner are doing their best, it is not enough. Place is run down, rooms are small, poorly furnished, bathroom is so tight that for average person is hard to turn around. Bed and bedding are pretty bad. The blanket was a thin as news paper. Air condition is in need of updating:... More

We have stayed here at least once a year for the last 10 years!! We just love it. Love the parking right in front of your unit with easy access for our dogs. Very peaceful and quiet. Wine country is just miles away and so is Sears point raceway which is where we go often to race our car. Ricky's... More

Their website pictures are deceiving. This is not an Inn. It is a motel fronting on the Freeway. If I wanted a motel on the highway, Motel 6 is just down the road for 1/3 the price. The front office staff were basically comatose and could not or would not answer questions. The room had a tiny "convenience" Bathroom. The... More

Thank you for providing your feedback. I am sorry that our website photos did not meet your expectation. Our Property was built in 1949 and was constructed with slump stone in the mission style court yard on 5 acres of land. We do have 9 rooms that face the freeway. 30 of our rooms are on our 1 acres courtyard... More

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
