Marin Suites Hotel
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Corte Madera
Reviewed November 23, 2013

This hotel was very reasonably priced for the area and the rooms are spacious. Walking distance to a few stores and a coffee/sandwich/bookstore. I stayed two nights. We had five rooms booked for a family wedding. It is also a dog friendly hotel.

We chose this property for its excellent location and amenities. Our first two nights of our vacation were at the Marin Suites. The rooms were a good size with a nice kitchen, dining area and living area. You are within walking distance of shopping and only a 20 minute drive from the Muir Woods. You are also approximately 45 minutes of Sonoma. There is a Safeway in the plaza beside the hotel for those who want to do some light cooking.

The staff were courteous and very helpful. The pool and spa looked very nice and unfortunately we were unable to use them due to lack of time. Similarly, there is a wonderful fireplace area available for use in the evening as well a a fire pit. There is also a breakfast in the morning which offers you the basics. The entire facility is very clean and the beds comfortable. It is suited for all travelers.

Our trip through San Francisco unfortunately coincided with the Salesforce.com annual conference. No accommodation with a reasonable Tripadvisor review was available in or near downtown San Francisco. So following Tripadvisor guidance, we booked 3 nights at the Marin Suites. Nice big rooms, with separate bedrooms and a kitchen. A bit dated, but clean and tidy. Staff were really friendly and helpful.

Visiting downtown was easy using the Larkspur Ferry. And it was easy to get around and about from Corte Madera (Marin Suites) using the rental car.

Not the most romantic of rooms, but with the money saved, the nearby restaurants can help with that and still save you money.

Room Tip: Get a room on a higher floor.

Thank you finding us on Trip Advisor. Yes, Salesforce is a very large conference that brings people over the Golden Gate Bridge to Marin County as alternative stay. It is also nice to read that you took the ferry to the city. It's such a beautiful way to go the city, especially on a clear day.

We might not be the most romantic destination, but you are right that we have very spacious rooms and we do promote ourselves as a great value for our area.

Again, thank you and we hope to see you again...

Very nice suites at very family friendly pricing. Breakfast is filled and kept clean. Rooms were well cared for and plenty of space. The manager corrected a billing error after we returned home from our trip. When staying in Northern California we will be at Marin Suites.

Our check in was fast and easy and on other occasions when we had questions about nearby restaurants, check out, and billing, we found each interaction very pleasant. So the staff and service was excellent. Our room was somewhat updated, at least cosmetically, but beyond that there are several deficiencies. The circuit breakers were in an uncovered box on a wall in the bathroom less than 3 feet from the shower; who's idea was that? The heat (not really needed in nice California weather) is an old wall furnace. There is no A/C, also not really essential during our visit, but it would have been nice for ventilation to circulate air instead of opening the window but in so doing letting in the noise. After 8 days, the free breakfast became boring; no changes; fresh fruit on only two of those days; no eggs except hard boiled. Parking at night was always a problem when coming back after 6pm; they simply do not have enough parking and they were always booked solid. We were on 2nd floor and always heard footsteps and noise from floor above us. Lots of families so a bit noisy. Nice size room with desk, kitchen table, fridge, and microwave. Any other accommodations in the area are $100/night more and up. So a great value. If you are watching your budget, it's a good choice.

Room Tip: Ground floor is best if you have heavy luggage.

Thank you for the feedback and expressing both the positives with our negatives with the hotel. Yes, we are an older hotel and we are updating all the furnishing as well, painting and carpeting in all of our rooms. We appreciate the fact that you enjoyed the service of the hotel and recognized our location. We really are so close to so much.

We also understand the problem with parking late at night. It is nice to be sold out. However, with the remodeling going on it does take away some parking spaces. We apologize for your inconvenience. We should done be very soon!

Again, thank you for recognizing the real value with our property and the location.

I stay in the San Francisco Bay Area frequently and am now annoyed with myself for not previously discovered Marin Suites Hotel.
The facility is very well maintained, the rooms are large and comfortable and having a kitchen facility in the unit puts it over the top compared to other hotels/motels in the area.
I would give it a fifth star but it really is not a deluxe accommodation. That said, it is the first place I will try to reserve in future visits to the area. Oh, and it is walking distance to "Book Passages", Marin's outstanding book stores.

Room Tip: For me, being away from the freeway is important. The staff accommodated my request.

We are excited that you have discovered us and how close we really are to the city. Yes, Book Passages is a jewel of a book store. They are more than a nice variety of books. They also have seminars, book signings and a lot more to offer.

Thank you for the feedback, we hope to see you on your next trip to the area.

Clean and large rooms with nice amenities. Beautiful outdoor fireplace/area. Very pleasant place to stay, friendly staff and great location. Convenient place for pets. If I were staying longer, the only thing to improve might be a larger closet. The bathroom has some nice storage though. Beds were comfortable.

Elizabeth:

Thank you for your kind words. It's nice to see that you were able to advantage of our Sanctuary area and sit by the fire.

All of our rooms seem to have their own personality. Yes, some of our two bedrooms we have smaller closets. Having all the rooms being so spacious, you would think the architect would have thought of that years ago. We have added the Armoire in rooms to give you some closet space.

Again, thank you for you feedback. We look forward to having you stay again.
