We stayed in the Heart's Desire suite, 10/9-1/11/13. What a lovely, relaxing spot. There were four of us and both beds were very comfortable. We ate in a few times and it was nice to have the little kitchenette for dishes, glasses, etc. I also appreciate the hotel's nod to sustainability in the bamboo dishes, notes to be water usage conscious, and other practices. The outside area to watch the wildlife was lovely. We also spent time in the front in the beautiful garden. If you would like a quiet, relaxing, clean place to stay then I highly recommend the Motel Inverness.

Room 4 was very cute although a bit on the cozy side. On the down side my wife and I woke up in pain, the bed had San Francisco style hills in it. The lodge was very nice with a wonderful view of the bay and nice morning light.

We decided to stay at the Motel Inverness because it was late and we saw that there was a vacancy. That was an excellent decision on our part.

The staff is terrific and provided a lot of information about sightseeing/dining/etc for the area.

The motel is a bit older and has some older style decor. However, the bathroom had new style fixtures. And everything was working perfectly.

The motel backs up to the wetlands of Tomales Bay, and there is a boardwalk that goes out a hundred yards or so with a comfy covered bench at the end. So depending on the season, birdwatchers could freak out here. Or one could just use binocs or a scope (the motel has one) from the wooden decks. The common lobby area is quite comfy.

This is a pleasant good value property, not too far from attractions such as the Pt. Reyes Lighthouse, or the elk preserve.

Two nights at Motel Inverness right on the main road just past Inverness Park. Small ground floor room with nice little balcony right on the marsh adjacent to Tomales Bay. Some birds to see right there. Really late arrival nicely accommodated. We'd been there before and would go back again. However you don't want to be spending much if any time in this room and if the weather is cold and windy, the balcony is not the place to be. Since we have grown kids in the Marin county area and planned visits to the beaches up the road and breakfast & dinners out, was an OK headquarters for us. Spacious common room. Adjacent outdoor seating with grass friendly to young kids. Caveats: They don't serve any meals - specifically breakfast! Also the bed was too soft and lumpy for my taste...needs to be replaced.

Just to add to what others have said, our first room, room with a view,was just cramped. Too small for 2 of us to move around in. But they moved us to number 2 with a little kitchenette and much better experience. It's a very basic hotel but works if you are here to enjoy the outdoors.
