The staff was very friendly. Internet wasn't free for me.
Nice place for families Couldn't control air conditioning to get colder
It's a clean, well-kept facility with a good location. The bed was comfortable and the price was reasonable. The structure magnifies noise, and the hotel doesn't discourage it, with loud parties and conversation continuing past midnight. The fitness room is small and one of the four machines broken throughout our stay. A calamity one morning canceled the highly touted breakfast, with no acknowledgment or discount by the hotel. Internet access is $10 per day. It's fine, and I confess that I haven't stayed in a better full-service hotel in the area, but there is no reason to look forward to staying at this property.
Spacious Rooms Cost, long walk to room
Very quiet and always appreciate the breakfast and happy hour! Wish the train was operating to Sonoma. Still a few months away. That will be awesome.
Nice location and a beautiful lobby. Quiet. Very large rooms that can comfortable fit 4 people. Liked the complimentary treats during the midday to evening. Each room has 2 rooms, each with its own hdtv. Comfortable beds with nice sheets. I used the fridge, which worked very well and kept my drinks very cold. It was obvious it hadn't been cleaned from the previous guests. The facility was dirty. Literally. There was urine on the seat and toilet paper in the bowl. The backs of earrings were on the counter and we only had one set of towels for a room meant for two people. I called to have it cleaned and it took them over an hour to send anyone. And when they did, after I'd called a second time to remind them, the maid merely flushed the toilet and left without cleaning anything. I requested to have my room switched but the person at the front desk said they were fully booked. So I was out of luck and decided to stick it out. Later that night I realized the ironing board and doors to the armoire were broken. Yet another disappointment. The next morning I was out of the room by 9:45 am. I came back just before 3 pm and found my room hadn't been cleaned. I waited over an hour before the maid knocked on my door. She walked in, made the beds, took away the wet towels, and within 10 minutes she left. She never touched the counters, vacuumed, or disinfected the bathroom. Then, to no surprise by this point, I went to use the complimentary microwave and found it a mess. It had obviously been used many times and never been cleaned. Luckily the first maid left a roll of paper towels by mistake. I cleaned it myself. If I stay here again, I'll have to remember to bring Clorox bleach, a sponge, rubber gloves, paper towels and air freshener. I'll keep my usual tip to cover my extra expenses. And it's 2015 Embassy Suites. What hotel doesn't offer complimentary wifi?! Especially at nearly $200 a night.
The indoor waterfall and koi pond, part of their tropical atrium, are really unique. They have substantial snacks in the evening and great breakfast.
The room design, hotel layout, coy ponds, happy hour, breakfast, pool, honor bar style shop. It's a little run down and the bar closes early. It seems like it should be open later on weekends. Especially when there are no other options near by.
i like the hotel, it was beautiful, I enjoy the water fall, coy fish, the hotel grounds very nice. the breakfast excellent... P.S. I like being on the firs floor. that provided us a great access to the beautiful scenery the hotel has to offer. I did not like the room. it was not what I expected from a beautiful hotel. the living room had a big conference table, it fell like I was at an office, that made it very uncomfortable, we wanted a private place to hangout but with the big table and office chairs, it was not possible. we ask the staff " a guy" for the room to be change but the staff member, that we ask, he told us we need it to pay an additional $50. I you can see as was not away in business nether was I meeting with other people for biasness. the staff member made a remark that my room was book by you guys and that they could not change any!!!
Clean, quiet and comfortable! Great happy hour and full breakfast To holder is behind the user! Awkward!!
We arrived very late and the two women who were manning the front desk were absolutely fantastic. Very friendly, helpful, and just lovely. We wanted to sleep until about 9am, however, at about 7am Sasquatch began pacing upstairs, stomping back and forth for hours. We didn't get the rest we needed for our upcoming long drive.
Room had a poor Ac . Just too hot
I liked that is was clean and quiet and that breakfast was included.
The Marin Suites is next door to the Book Passage bookstore where we see many famous Authors visiting to sign their books. The location is only minutes from three malls and the freeway to Napa or San Francisco.
Huge room, wonderful beds, quiet, updated facilities, friendly management Breakfast/snack area was small
We loved it here and will stay here again everytime we need an overnight in the city! It was perfect for catching the Larkspur ferry as its just minutes away. This made our Super Bowl activities that much easier. The owners were fantastic and made us feel like family. Can't wait to come back!!!
The location is great - close to downtown San Rafael. Also, it is a good value for your money, since other hotels seem to be way more expensive. The hotel manager was also a nice guy. It was a nice quaint hotel. Main problem was the hot water was not on when we tried to take a shower in the morning. Apparently they were doing some work in our unit, and jumped the gun on turning off the water ahead of time. Also, the phone did not work as well. The actual room was also pretty small - basically a studio room.
The staff was very kind with my very late 11:30pm check in. Also they have free water bottles! The room was elegantly decorated with IKEA stuffs but it was comfortable. We liked it very much. We would definitely stay there again.
Great customer service! Nothing!
The Marin Lodge was charming and clean and completely redone recently. Rooms were cozy and comfortable with nice accommodations and we will be back!! Would HIGHLY recommend staying here!
We loved this place. We would have stayed longer if we would have found it sooner. the bed was comfortable, the room had all the amenities you would expect; TV, hair dryer, microwave, iron, etc. They have a free continental breakfast of blueberry muffins and fresh fruit and coffee as well as complimentary sodas and bottled water The parking was very limited but I believe it was due to the construction which was apparently for remodeling as we noticed a distinct smell of fresh paint. It was a little far to drive from local eateries unless you are familiar with the area.
Great staff, clean quiet room, ample parking.
Nice staff Older hotel, overall I don't think I will ever go back
I travel for business and have stayed in many, many hotels over the last few years. I've never written a review for a hotel until today. I was very impressed by the warmth and hospitality of the Four Points San Rafael. The staff was happy to be there and happy to help me in whatever way I needed. Whether it was extending my checkout time significantly or getting me 4 bottles of extra water or faxing my papers out for me, it was done with a smile. The service here made all the difference to my experience. The room was also very clean and well kept. Thanks Four Points!
I didn't like the adjacent doors that are now added to the rooms. Made me very uncomfortable during the night. There are latched on them, so I wasn't really sure if the door was locked.
Comfortable room with very friendly staff. We enjoy the stays very much. My room is a bargain with almost 50% price of the regular room. Very good value but the room faces I-101 with highway noise. You may want to check with the hotel for better rooms.
Everything was good. It is nice to be able to count on this hotel to give good service every visit. Nothing
The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The facility is very well maintained and clean. The room was really nice and bed was comfortable. Fitness center was spacious and high tech - cold bottled water was a bonus.
It was clean. They did not honor the pricing booked through Kayak. They charged me over double the agreed upon rate. They have a policy to not honor pricing if you don't book within their time window.
Seedy, bad smelling rooms. Did not feel clean. Never again.
Convenience, price Motel-style set-up.
For several years we have been using Best Western Corte Madera Inn as a favored place to stay when visiting the Bay Area. We like the shopping that is convenient to its location. San Francisco is just a hop away down the 101 and across the Golden Gate. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, also well appointed. Staff is courteous and helpful, and the free breakfast at the restaurant next door is really good. Some of the rooms sometime seem a little dated, but this is not a deterrent to us. It's a great location.
Large lapping swimming pool was a nice surprise
Rooms were quite big and comfortable. Many extras on the propert in an excellent location.
Bed was great. Room big. Good breakfast. Huge pool. Right off freeway. Would stay again. No elevator. Sink/vanity not enclosed in bathroom. No bar.
Front desk people were great we got in a little late. They kept the pool open for us which was a lot of fun. Then we relaxes by the fire pit. Great hotel just outside of San Fran.
The location worked well for me, close to Sausalito. The housekeeping staff did a good job with the room. Hotel is dated and the carpets and furniture are worn. No restaurants in the immediate area. It is overpriced for what it offers. Far better to stay a bit further north - better value.
Serves it purpose Good restaurant next door Expect much more for the price Best to book online, staff are obviously trained to quote highest price possible with no power to negotiate.
The shower was amazing and the beds awesome No hot water at all on Friday morning waited over a hour and still nothing but ice water in the shower. When hot water was available shower w as awesome
location navigating television - could be easier with broader premium choices.
We simply needed a place to stay between Napa Valley and Marin Headlands. This is a great location with brunch, yoga/cycle studios, juice shops and more all within walking distance. It's right near the highway- perfect! Nope!
close to the ferry Very cheaply put together compared to other Marriot Courtyards I've stayed at.
The staff was very helpful. I think was great all around.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Comfy and quiet No included breakfast for the price paid for the room
Close to everything we wanted to do. Not exactly the easiest of places to find but once located all ok- in very congested area.
Quiet, clean, good direct room access, attractive surroundings, convenient location room rate was at about the limit of what I could comfortably afford to pay.
Extremely friendly and courteous staff. Free wifi and parking. Room had a slightly odd smell (like heavy perfume).
I booked two rooms for my family. They arrived before me and the front desk insisted that there was only one room booked - although it looked pretty clear that there were two rooms under two different names on the reservation. (The hotel was not full.)
The service from the staff; front desk, housekeeping. All of your people there are friendly and enthusiastic to provide exceptional service The distance from the front desk to my room. Even after agreeing to give me a room near the lobby, my only request, I was given a roomote than halfway across the hotel, past the conference center.Also it's time to upgrade the bathroom to glass showers
Very courteous staff on at the reception Very rude blond bar woman. Passive aggressive attitude, careless, disinterested, unattentive.
We stayed at the Mill Valley Inn to take advantage of nearby hiking at Mt. Tamalpais. The spacious, comfortable room was clean and overlooked a small audible stream. The staff was friendly and helpful. Located on a quiet street in Mill Valley, we were able to walk everywhere and take advantage of the lovely restaurants.
We spent a long weekend here and it was so relaxing. The staff is extremely helpful. Even the rooms without the best views have redwoods just outside the windows so you can lie back and admire the towering trees. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated, the soaking tub is small (not big enough for two). If you're looking for a low-key restful place, you should certainly consider Mill Valley Inn.
Very accommodating staff and clean design. Overall a great hotel for the price. no
Room appointments, cleanliness, breakfast room very pleasant, drinks in the evening, pretty lobby, great location for our events. Needed more light in the room at times. It was hard to see where the hotel was, coming in from the highway because only one side was marked well.
The staff was incredibly friendly and the happy hour after a long ride on complimentary bikes was a nice way to end the day. I missed having a hot tub or sauna.
Access to garden Very basic. No A/C, no fans, cant open window. Not planning to stay there again, not recommend.
I liked the area and the privacy. This was unique and not like any standard hotel room. Also, I was able to have my small dog stay with us. There was some difficulty for us since my mother uses a walker, and she needed to negotiate one or two steps.
This charming place was really easy to find and I can't wait to stay there next time I go to the San Francisco area!
This hidden gem is perfection--truly like something out of 'Victoria' magazine. If you need a break from the big city (San Francisco is a short 1/2 hour away), this is the place. Close to fun shops and great eateries in a classic CA neighborhood.
Privacy, and ambiance. No.
Great central location within easy walking distance to shops and resturants.Wonderful outdoor space for entertaining guests.Very friendly and helpful owner. No central heating or air conditioning.
The bathroom worked as it should. There was hot water in the shower. The drains and toilet worked fine. My wife called the morning we were going to check in to confirm we'd have a room with a queen and double sized beds. She was told we're confirmed and that wouldn't be a problem. When we got to our room that night we had quite a surprise - the room had the double bed we asked for but the other bed was a... twin bed! I called the front desk to ask why there was a twin bed in our room. "Your room has a queen and a double". "I'm standing in my room right now and there's no queen bed here". "How did you book your room?" "Online". "We're not responsible for what the website promised you". "Oh no, no no. YOU just told me I had a queen bed. I am asking YOU to make good on YOUR promise of a queen bed". Silence for about 10 seconds. Then "We're all booked up for the night and there aren't any other rooms". Just out of curiosity, I checked the hotel website and there's no mention anywhere of a room with a twin bed. The next morning I went to the front desk to ask for a call from the manager to refund a portion of my bill. The front desk clerk asked what my complaint was and I told her about the beds in the room. "That room has a queen and double beds". "No it doesn't. It's a twin bed". "How did you book your room?" "Online". "We're not responsible for what the website promised you". "I've heard. But YOU told my wife yesterday we'd have a queen bed. YOUR employee last night told me that room had a queen bed and YOU also just told me that room has a queen bed. I am asking YOU to make it right". Loud sigh. "I'll have the manager call you". It's been two weeks Mr Manager. Still waiting for that call....
We loved this place, especially for the insanely good price. Walk to Buckeye Roadhouse for steak and back home. Can't beat it. Not enough blankets so we were a bit cold.
cleanness. Staff is rude. Breakfast is poor.
The location was nice but if you're willing to drive a few miles north there are nicer hotels for the same price. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. It had several broken springs and was bulging on the sides. The room was very small and there was a table that blocked access to the right side of the king sized bed so you had to crawl on to the bed from the foot of it. No dressers, only a small rack that the tv is mounted to to hang. No shower head, water was spraying at full blast out of a pipe coming from the wall like a hydrant which was not awful but it required me to ricochet water off my hands on to my face if I didn't want water to go up my nose.
Drug deals and lots of yelling in parking lot.
Location. Dirty sheets, rude staff, continental breakfast was closed when it was supposed to be open, smoke alarm was hanging from ceiling not in working order.
Bathroom seemed recently remodeled but sink faucet was installed too close to backsplash making it difficult to use the drain handle. Ended up in a handicap room with no place -not even hooks - to hang our clothes. Why? "Because the law doesn't require it." Seriously!
GRUMPY FRONT DESK, THEY DO NOT OPERATE ROOM TELEPHONE SERVICE UNTILL 1 MORNING @11 A.M. MISSED A IMPORTANT OUT OF STAY CAL!L no pool( filled in with grass ) but they do advertise that they have a pool! NO BREAKFAST, WHATEVER, BUT THEY ADVERTISE. KEEP GOING!!!
The location was OK and the linens were clean, other than that, a real pit. Stop listing this property as the association with the Travelodge name is very deceiving. The upper floor slants, possible structural issues and the breakfast was a sad joke. Like I said, a real pit and for the rates are, will never stay or recommend that anybody does. The pool has been drained and is now a large planter.
No frills but clean and reasonably priced. Continental breakfast is nothing to write home about, only mini bagels and cereal.
Value. Proximity to Muir Woods. Comfortable. Clean. Everything worked. Staff was very friendly, helpful, and attentive. A little noisy- close to busy road.
Easy to find. Check in was easy. Nice tub. Free wifi. Bed was horrible. Ice maker broken. Refrigerator was very noisy. Our stay was unpleasant.
The location was good. Broken lock on front door, screen on Bath window was ripped. Walkway was not level
The room look like the picture online. Very clean and spacious! Loved that it had a refrigerator and microwave! Comfortable bed and pillows! Plus loved the green features, lights, toilet and shower. Beat value for bay area accommodations that I could find! My initial roomed smelled like cigarette smoke but was quickly changed.
The breakfast was the best part of the stay. We didn't like that the room temperature was too warm for the stay. It was a unusually hot day in Marin.
Bed and Breakfast style in an awesome small town. Great staff and fantastic breakfast. Definitely would stay again.
convenient location very run down, old amenities. close to highway
Better than my first hotel, had a comforter and heating. Wasn't fancy but for the price it had everything you need, bed, good pillows, fridge, bathroom with working shower, TV and cable. Did have burn spots in carpet but that didn't hinder anything. Mmmhhh only thing was battery's in the remotes.
location Everyting is too old for the price. The room had NO ac. Should be a $-- a night room.
Super retro aesthetic, easy access to gas, grocery, In n Out burger, sites around Marin County, etc. Staff was nice, appears to be family run which was cool. Definitely outdated but we expected as much for the price. Right on highway so couldn't keep windows open and there was no AC, just a fan. heater seemed to linger on even after we turned the air off. First AM housekeeper knocked kind of early
The bed was comfortable, it was clean. Our unit had full kitchen, but no utensils,pans,kettle,or coffee maker! Couldn't use it. I doubt other units have one. Right on 101 freeway, Could have been more comfortable with a little more effort - paper towels in holder, an entry mat - for rain footprints on tile, nothing to wipe up with. Bathroom shelf, since it only has a small sink. Light-blocking curtains. $$$
The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are very well maintained.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
The location is perfect for what we wanted to do, which is the only reason I booked a one-star motel. The price is OK for the area. This is one of the seediest places I've ever stayed. One star is generous. The owners are Indian and not very communicative. The room was too small, no air conditioning (and triple digit temperatures) and not very clean.But the location and price-OK
Comfortable bed, cheapest in area. Noisy by hwy, older, no queen bed, only doubles although reservation said otherwise. Small room (squeeze around bed to get to bathroom).
Close to shopping. Gross and dated. Smoke detector was not hooked up!
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
The price range. It was located near the place where the wedding of my granddaughter was to take place. Not really.
Good value at a decent hotel. Couldn't access the closet - one of the queen beds blocked it.
Good price and location if you want to explore Muir woods etc. Bathroom was not very clean
The personale was very friendly, but there was not what I call a breakfast .... Only coffe and a smal cake. Breakfast could be much better otherwise they should write what it is.You feel a little cheatet with this , because they advertise it as breakfast and it is not.
Location and price It was a little seedy
The price, which you can't beat. Close to the high way, and the noise from the road was pronounced. I had to keep the fan on high all night in order to sleep.
The bed was good. The room seemed clean and we did not find bugs anywhere. This motel was located very close to our family member we had come to visit, so in spite of the bad shower and T.V. noise, we would strongly consider using it on a future trip to CA. The shower head was terrible. We could get warm water for only a few moments and then it became scalding hot and if turned it down, it was freezing. The pillows are way too high for both of us, so we slept with no pillow each night. Walls very thin and our immediate neighbor kept the T.V. going till like 2 in the morning and then again by about 6 they would turn it back on. Hard to sleep with the noise.
Close to fine dining. Had a very comfortable bed. There was dead bugs in the bathroom for 4 days and the windows would not shut good had bad freeway noise. Also trash from people before was seen. I would not stay there again.
Location Lack of amenities and dirty feeling, not a true breakfast.
Staff was very helpful and nice. Hotel exceeded my expectations
The room was spacious and quiet. It's location is convenient to the freeway. The staff were unprofessional. They spent more time in the back room chatting with each other. The grab and go breakfast was not stocked. The coffee was not replaced from the day before.
Convienant to Larkspur Ferry. Jacuzzi was about the size of a bathtub :-(
Room is big. There was no cups or glasses in the room and the light in the shower room was out.
Price There was junk under the bed. Neither the swimming pool nor the fitness room had any clean towels. This is the first hotel I've been in that didn't have water in the fitness room. There was a large dust ball in the fitness room. No cups in the room.
The Gymn Breakfast was terrible. Just wrapped muffins, prepackaged oatmeal and luke warm coffee. That's not a good start into the day.
There was never anyone at the front desk. When you called it just rang and rang, the sad part was the excuse I got, the remote phone was not working. Less then two miles is a Target buy a $20.00 phone and be professional
Location and room size. 1 person on staff at night and she's usually assisting people around the hotel. I had to wait in the lobby for them to return. Too close to the prison. I saw some questionable people. I didn't like the hot tub being outside or no towels. Thin walls.
Comfortable bed. Quiet considering alongside freeway. Typical Extended Stay America -- bare essentials, minimal 'breakfast'.
It was actually very cozy like a home away from home. Kitchenette and full size fridge was awesome. Felt like it was a little off the beaten path but was worth the money.
Clean, spacious and comfortable!
