3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Front desk closed when we arrived at ten p.m. Registration through a drive up window with the vent to hear and talk through about eight feet high. Could not hear the person. I made reservations online and was charged the base rate $16 more and was told that was the rate. She seemed tired. We were on the second floor... More

This place is clearly just getting milked for all its worth this place could have used an update 10 years ago now this place is really screaming out for an update. You could feel holes in the subfloor just below the carpet. Total joke of a hotel.

Travelodge is the best option if its kind we have found in the typically expensive Marin area. Rooms were clean and staff was friendly and helpful. Free wifi worked well. The breakfast was good compared to places like Americas Best but don't expect a real breakfast for free here.

Motel was clean, clerk helpful at ck in. Not open in the morning before we left @ 7:30 so no morning coffee or snacks. Noisy due to location.

This is a typical "affordable" motel in the area. But, even with that, "small" things can go a long way. You get the distinct impression that the owners would really just prefer to put out their hand, you put the money in it, and they walk away, providing the bare minimum to meet Wyndham standards, and not a square of...

We booked this though Hotwire and sometimes that can be like Russian Roulette. The surrounding area was dirty, full of shady looking folks. It felt like the kind of place that your car could get broken into, and luckily ours didn't. The room was old and needed a remodel. When we came in, the bathroom window had been left open.... More

I reserved a room here based on cost in the area so I accept that it isn't a very good hotel. If you can spend more then do so and stay somewhere else. Checking in the guy behind the counter was inconvenience by my arrival. Poor customer service. Coming back from dinner around 9p and two guys were looking suspicious... More
