It's always a great time to visit our fabulous Martinez hotel in sunny California, where fine dining, shopping, the Amtrak Station, and downtown are right down the street. Hotels in Martinez strive to reach the bar set by our accommodations. Named after John Muir, the first naturalist who started Yosemite and Yellowstone National Parks, we're all about embracing nature. Hiking and biking trails abound near this Martinez hotel. However, we're also close to the marina for great fishing. John Muir Martinez led this area when it came to celebrating natural beauty, but we don't skimp on pampering. Martinis on the Plaza is an annual event. This favorite cocktail drink was invented here. The annual King of the Country BBQ and Music Festival is a classic. Bass fishing tournaments are fierce in this neck of the woods.

Fairly good location.
1) Ant infestation in room. 2) Small bathroom sink. No room to put toilet items. 3) Breakfast was terrible. Watery scrambled eggs, cold potatoes, same menu every day. Low quality selections. 4) Asked for quiet location and was put into one of the busiest areas on first floor near employee area, laundry and renovations. They completely ignored the request. 5) Was there over a year ago where they were replacing carpets on 3rd floor. The project was still not completed on all floors. 6) Was able to open a window to get fresh air, but there is no screen installed on the window. 7) Heard a story that a local inspector was threatening to shut them down unless they quickly implemented corrective actions. One gets the impression that the owners are cheap on preventive maintenance and only respond when forced to. The hotel seems busy, and so I speculate that they are making money and could afford renovations on an ongoing basis if they wanted to do them. 8) Very limited selections on TV.
No iron in the room, but there was an ironing board. Smelled a bit. Sketchy dudes hanging out in the lobby from 8pm until at least 11:30 when I went to bed. Not sure if they were undercover security or if watching Netflix on their phones from the lobby is better than being in their own rooms.
friendly staff, very clean and good access to local restaurants
smoking room, I am surprised there is smoking allowed in a CA hotel?
the Saturday day clerk was indifferent to another customer and myself during interactions
Poor wifi remote to tv didn't work tv screen kept jumping towels smell
Nothing didn't stay after seeing room conditions.
Stains on the sheets and strong smoke smell made us leave after we saw our room. Building was falling apart. Worst hotel I've ever been to glad I didn't stay the night. Wouldn't recommend.
My room was clean, neat, and suited my purposes just fine for my trip. The bathroom is large enough and has a tub which is important to me since I am a bather. The staff was friendly and courteous, helpful. I didn't use the breakfast room but it was full and active when I walked by.
The only thing I had some difficulty with was the tub stopper. It wouldn't close tight enough to keep the water in. I had to put my heel on it to keep the water in. I reported the need for a repair at the desk when I left Saturday morning. Small inconvience - I would stay there again if in the future.
Nothing this hotel picture on the web did not do it justice, will never stay there again...................
