We needed a place in the area on short notice on a 3-day weekend that didn't require a 2-night stay. This was available. We were here in January so not a whole lot of traffic. Betting it would be noisier in summer. Room was comfortable. Staff was nice.

We happened upon this inn on a cold, rainy, winter evening on our way up the coast. Even though they were "closed" for the holiday the proprietress was kind enough to rent us a room for the evening. The decor was delightful, with a period feel. It was quiet, quaint and comfortable. I awoke to the smell of coffee. She...

We stayed at the hotel in late November, when there were no other guests. We were given access to the hotel via email information. The room key was waiting for us at the desk on arrival. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. We enjoyed our stay although we did not get to speak to staff. The breakfast was simple...

We didn't plan ahead. My sister and I went on a trip to northern California and picked out our hotels the night before we traveled. We ended up choosing this spot because of the description and discovered it was a wonderful choice. This small inn only had a few rooms, but they are well kept and very quaint. We fell...

The Continental Inn is a two story building with all rooms on the second floor. With reservations customers are given a door code to enter the lobby to find their room key. The front desk is rarely occupied. On the second floor is a small area to make coffee in the morning, and a refrigerator with various juices and cream....

Very quaint hotel and town. Super food all around you. William Tell Hotel and Bar next door, K& A Take Out with really obviously home made from scratch food right across the street. Bed was comfy. Direct TV connection stopped working at some point and since the hotel really isn't staffed most of the time, I just took a bath...

The hotel is located on the main street of Tomales, which is very small and quaint. We chose this location because we were kayaking nearby and wanted to return to a warm, cozy room when we returned... and it was! The room (#9) had an outside entrance to completely private, well appointed room with a sink, microwave, refrigerator and coffeemaker....

Made reservations at the last moment and this place seemed nice, had vacancy, and was reasonably priced - for Marin County, that is. Well, it is not really a B&B. It is a small hotel with relatively large rooms with king beds. The room we chose was airy, had two windows, was very clean and had a reasonable toilet/shower combo....

I see you booked on our website which clearly states no breakfast on weekdays, and we are not a B&B. I see you had a large room at the back of the hotel, so not sure about your comments re rooms at the front being noisy. You are correct, we do set up the hotel so that everything is very...

We booked this inn for an overnight stay, it was situated on the Main Street and easy to find. We had been given a code for entry and our key was left on the desk, no one to welcome or show us to the room - very much do it yourself! We thought the price included a continental breakfast but...

Convenient location in quiet small town on road to Pt. Reynes. The front desk was unattended and four sets of key were left in envelopes with guests names. Front door was open all day. I guess this is ok in a small town with no security issues. Our room was large and comfortable. But there were problems with noise from...
