After checking in at the makeshift front desk (under construction) I was told my room had a water view and to drive to the back of the buildings to enter the area my room was. The entrance to my room was filled with garbage bags, food on the ground, and the water view was a stream of water running under the interstate bridge.

The very first thing the receptionist notified me is: "There is no housekeeping except on your last day." I couldn't believe it: a hotel with no housekeeping! But OK, prepaid reservation, I have no choice. After check-in I go to grab dinner and on my return there are trash bags on the hallway outside rooms. Unsanitary! I worry I will find rats and cockroaches in my room. After eating my food, I take my smelly fried chicken garbage out to the outside trash bin and it is overflowing with garbage. I take my trash bag to my room and sleep smelling my fried chicken leftovers. Unacceptable Holiday Inn, simply unacceptable not to provide housekeeping services and allow your hotel to become an unsanitary pile of garbage. How low you dropped your standards.

We stopped by on a road trip and ended up adding a second night to our stay. Great location just over the Golden Gate bridge, so convenient for exploring San Francisco during the day, and retreating to a peaceful oasis in the evening. The hotel is under construction currently but they manage it so well that the impact was negligible - new rooms look great. They also did a fantastic job at enhanced cleaning and safety protocols around COVID-19. The highlight for our girls was the outdoor, heated pool. All the (indoor) pools at the hotel along our way were closed (or should be) but here we were able to make a "reservation" for the pool (COVID-19 safety), and we ended up with the entire pool to ourselves for the day. Beautiful. We look forward to a return visit(s).

My stay at this hotel was exactly what I needed when I didn’t know what I needed. I stayed there a couple times while working nearby. Every day when I got back to the hotel, it was just like coming home. Joanne at the front desk would ask me how my day was each time she saw me and I felt genuinely cared for. No matter how my work day went, I could always count on having a spark of joy when I came back to the hotel. That in and of itself made the trips worth it. As far as the hotel - the rooms were nice, the surroundings were peaceful, and the location was convenient. I hope to return soon. Mostly for Joanne, but the hotel was nice too.

I would definitely stay again. This place has a perfect location to explore either Sausalito or San Francisco. Our room was clean and newly renovated. The lady at check in was extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. The only bad thing about our stay was the temperature of the room. Our room was extremely hot. We were very tired so it didn’t bother us that much, but if we hadn’t been so tired it probably would have been a problem. I read another review that said their room was cold, so temperature regulation must be a problem here. Other than that, we loved our stay and would definitely return.
