Best Western Corte Madera Inn

Reviewed October 31, 2012

This is another hotel that I only used for a brief stay of one night, so I can't comment on gym/pool/etc.

I can only comment on the room itself and the bathroom, which weren't in the best condition anymore. Our room must have been close to the hotel's own facilities rooms, as it became quite noisy around 8 am, when the employees distributed breakfast baskets. Unfortunately we had only arrived at 2 am the night before, so a quieter environment would have been more useful to us.

The wifi was free and, when it worked, fast - which sadly it hardly ever did. The connection had so many total drops that it was almost unusable.

Combined with the fact that this hotel cost almost twice as much as the ones we had stayed at further up north - it made our stay feel like a let-down.

Thank you for your comments, we really appreciate you letting us know of the problem you encountered with our complimentary internet service and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. This is not a normal occurrence and in fact we have just recently upgraded our band with as well as the number of access points throughout the hotel. Also, again we apologize for any noise that may have disturbed you. Our breakfast delivery comes from a location within the hotel that is away from our guest rooms. We do feel that our guest room rates are extremely competitive with other hotels in southern Marin County. Thank you! Bill Blackburn, General Manager

We stayed in this hotel for 10 days as a Photo Crew. The service was very effective and friendly, the staff always works to make your needs come true.
The beddings are among the best I've had, super soft beds with very clean and comfortable pillows. Fast free internet in most of the rooms.Good morning coffee served in a basket in your room. Conveniently located next to a shopping mall that offers all basic services such as Pharmacy, supermarket, restaurants and basic shopping.
Very close to Sausalito, Tiburon, and Hiw.1, that goes to Muir woods and the headlands!
I really recommend this hotel for family, friends or business!

Went to San Francisco weekend of 10-20-12 to 10-23-12.Stayed at this Best Western for the first time and it will not be our last.If you are staying in the North Bay this is a comfortable hotel to stay.Continental breakfast delivered to the room each day with extra coffee and newspaper.Town Center Mall is across the street and there is a variety of places to eat there.Clean rooms,great service,huge parking lot.We didn't get a chance to use the heated pool but we will next time.All in all worth the money.

Our family of four stayed two nights at this hotel and we were very pleased. One of our rooms (131) had a courtyard view which was very nice as there were wicker chairs to enjoy our morning coffee. The in room coffee is very convenient and is a large thermal pot of Seattle's Best Coffee. Our other room (129) was very large with two queen beds and a bar area with a sink and fridge. Beds in both room were very comfortable. Complimentary breakfast basket are served in the morning consisting of a large muffin, yogourt, fruit, juice and coffee. You need to order the breakfast before 11 pm on the previous night. I enjoyed the heated pool one morning and it was relaxing. The internet in the rooms is a bit slow but there are two very fast computers in the lobby. Nice location as it is close to a mall and assorted restaurants. I felt the price of $159 was very reasonable and this hotel is close to Sonoma and Napa to the north and close to San Francisco to the south.

Room Tip: I would ask for a main floor room facing the courtyard.

We (ages 72-16) stayed here before a visit to Muir Woods & San Francisco. The property was lovely. The rooms were clean and everything was perfect. Had dinner delivered to the room from Max's next door. Breakfast basket served from there free of charge the next morning.. Included cereal, muffins, OJ, yougurt, coffee and fruit. Everything was the right temperature & at the time we requested. A newspaper was also delivered. The kids wanted to stay and use all the facilities (ping pong, shuffleboard, pool, spa, grill and fire pit. Will definitely plan to stay several nights on our next trip. I saw my first Ca. hummingbird there in one of the many flowering trees. The staff and central lobby couldn't have been nicer.

We recently stayed at this hotel while visiting the Bay area. The staff is extremely freindly and helpful. They went out of their way to help a friend back in Colorado arrange for appetizers to be delivered to our room for a surprise birthday treat. The staff left a card and a box of chocolate as well. They were most helpful with information about the area and how to best get around. The shuttle is 5 min from the Larkspur Ferry. There are 2 great places to eat within walking distance...an Italian restaurant with a wonderful menu and Max's next door and they offer a very excellent menu as well. Breakfast at the hotel is delivered to your room and is very acceptable with muffin, yogart, coffee, tea and juice. There is an outside fireplace which is very nice to relax and have good conversations. This hotel was recommended to me by friends who had stayed there several years ago and enjoyed their stay. I am certainly glad I made the decision to stay at this friendly and comfortable hotel. OUr room was 2 queen deluxe and very spacious.

This was our first stay at this hotel, and we were very pleased. The staff was efficient and friendly; the complimentary breakfast delivered to the room with a newspaper is a wonderful touch - classy and convenient; the bedroom and bathroom were both functional and extremely clean, with a very comfortable bed; they have an environmentally friendly policy regarding linens and soaps; very convenient to S.F., other points in Marin County and Napa / Sonoma. 35 minutes from Oakland airport. Weather was not great so we could not use pool, but the pool and hot tub area looked nice. We would stay here again if the opportunity arises.

Room Tip: All rooms open directly on outside walkway, and doors did not close automatically. Select room furt...
