“Clean, convenient, inexpensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We arrived here on July 3rd, so the traffic going north from San Francisco was bad--I was surprised the hotel name included San Francisco in your listing! This property is older, but well maintained, and in a quiet suburban area--it is on a frontage road, but we did not hear road noise, and it looked lots better than the online photo. Large pool and outdoor hot tub enjoyed by families, and quiet by 9pm. The beds were comfortable, shower worked well, and it was a pleasant drive to Pt. Reyes National Seashore, which we had come to explore. The breakfast was better than usual at economy places--they had yogurt and hard boiled eggs, so protein was possible. If I am in the area again, I'd go back.

Room Tip: We were upstairs, and had a nice little balcony overlooking the pool.

I reserved a non smoking room through Orbitz. When I arrived, they could only offer me a room for smokers. Obviously, my room had been rented earlier in the day - the ultimate no-no in the hotel business. All you non-smokers out there can probably appreciate what this means - smoke having insinuated itself into every nook and cranny of the room. WiFi is slow. Location remote unless you have business in Novato. It's cheap, however - now i know why.

The room was nice, the breakfast was ok, the manager was very rude. I wouldn't go back, even though we have family and other attractions relatively close. If the management isn't there to serve, they should find another vocation.

Very helpful desk clerk! Pool was nice, tho a bit dirty, average beds, clean, close to stuff like Sonoma raceway, which is why we booked it, ample parking. Nice thing, you can open your sliding door for some fresh air, tho watch, it locks itself!

Stayed here before and I am going back again.I prefer Marin County to San Francisco any time! And you can stay here and always travel to the city,but spend less on lodging,and get free parking.Going back in October,and plan to visit the city then,and take a little drive back to Novato and the Days Inn!
