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.

Upon arrival, there was total confusion as to our reservation and told ours was cancelled. We finally got a room only to be moved 3 times the first day and refused to move to the fourth room. The front desk was very unaccommodating, especially after driving 400 miles to get there. Recommend? NOT

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

Photos from the website were accurate. Rooms were renovated. Wood floors were a great idea since hotel carpets are usually nasty. Beds need to be upgraded. Very uncomfortable. Kept rolling into the center of the sagging mattress. Rooms are not very sound insulated either. Had a very amorous couple in the room next door that kept us awake 3x throughout... More

I love staying with my daughter and granddaughter in Novato but when my allergy to the cat got too bad I needed a place nearby for the rest of my stay. We had eaten at Rickey's and liked the music so it was a no brainer to stay at Inn Marin. My room was simple, environmentally considerate and had all... More

We arrived ready to enjoy a lovely evening and dinner. We were delighted to have an evening to spend with friends and a new group. It was strange that we were given a handicap room without a view of the garden. We are not disabled, so go figure. The TV and the refrigerator didn't work. Never got the problem resolved... More

We stayed here for two nights. The rooms are small (especially the bathroom) but nicely decorated and clean and they face a beautiful courtyard with swimmingpool. The staff was friendly. Breakfast is average, we enjoyed making our own waffles. It did get quite busy with playing children which might make it less suited for a romantic get away (at least... More
