I grew up in Martinez and have passed by the vintage Muir Lodge sign many a time. When family business brought me back to town, I was happy to see they were economically and competitively priced, as they were very conveniently located. The sign may be vintage, but the accommodations are wonderfully modern. The rooms are completely redone, comfortable and well equipped (refrigerator, microwave, hairdryer, iron and board, coffeemaker, TV, individual AC/heat, room darkening shade). The grounds are also revamped and the pool is sparkling (although closed due to pandemic). Muir Lodge gave myself, my husband, and our good friend in the adjacent room a very relaxing place to unwind after several hardworking days of packing and moving. I look forward to staying here again when next I am in town. I highly recommend booking directly with Muir Lodge rather than through a third party. They have the personal touch.

I came across the Muir Lodge Motel on Google maps. They were one of the few affordable hotels with rooms still available on Valentine's day. The rooms were updated and looked very nice. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The only negative was the walls are thin. I don't know what could be done about it with out rebuilding the entire motel. Management is aware and they provide complimentary ear plugs in the room.

Not only was the room cold because of no carpet or rugs on floor but the heater was so loud that we could not hear TV or sleep but I feel scammed by the check in clerk. I told the clerk that I did not want him to copy my driver license. after a long discussion about the need (or no need) to take a copy of the DL I handed it to him to just write down the DL number but he copied it to the computer. When I confronted him about that he just smiled. I feel like he SCAMMED me. i definitely will never stay there again and i would recommend that no body stay there.

Response from Priyang P, Guest Relations Manager at Muir Lodge Motel
Responded Jan 30, 2020
Dear Guest, We did not receive any call from you during your stay regarding any issues in the room. Our rooms are maintained and checked daily. After rechecking the room you had stayed in we did not notice the heater making noise anywhere near the level you have stated. We never enjoy disappointing a guest during the time with us but bashing our rooms because you did not want to verify yourself during check-in is not appreciated. We verify and enter every guest into our secure system, the intention is not to scam someone. We've had the same check-in process for over 10 years and no complaint from all our wonderful guests. Have a nice day and hope you stay with us again in the future.

Muir Lodge Motel turned out to be an excellent choice for us: The rate and quality was very competitive with higher priced lodgings nearby. This is an older property that has been thoroughly remodeled, and is in excellent condition. Full size room, newly tiled luxury shower, double sink and vanity with good lighting and space. A very comfortable room. The staff is attentive and helpful, we enjoyed our stay.
