"A Great Stay....but fix your elevator!"
There are many plusses for the Marin Suites. The beds were very comfortable and the suite was spacious and had all that we needed. The parking was great. The breakfast was simple fare, and bakery items were fresh as well as the fruit, and cereals provided. One big minus....the elevator was locked so hotel staff had to be asked to unlock it and it was […] 3:30 in the afternoon when we checked in. Also, the elevator is ANCIENT...the Marin Suites has beautiful remodeled rooms, but a sketchy elevator that I would not get into. They need to fix this and that is why I rated the quality of service and maintenance of hotel lower. A great stay, but renovate the elevator. The property is very nice otherwise and in a very safe and convenient area. Mall is nearby and so is a grocery store....all you need is nearby. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Good hotel for families. Common areas could be cleaner but room was perfect. Bbq's pool and room amenities great for eating in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was a lot better than I expected. The pictures online does not do it justice. My room was huge, bigger than some apartments Ive lived in. Compfy bed, clean bathroom and kitchen, and the table was set with plates already. I would definately stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Place to Stay"
Excellent customer service, friendly staff, large rooms with lots of space & comfortable beds.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was great with very spacious and comfortable rooms. It's within walking distance from the corte madera mall which gives you easy access to a variety of food options. My only complaint is that they said (and the information they give you says) the fitness center opens at 7am but it apparently doesn't open until 8am. The front desk staff gave a […] great recommendation for a running trail close to the hotel though. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A good last minute find"
I needed somewhere to stay at short notice. Looking online I found the Marin had very competitive rates. I booked online but once I arrived to check in I found I had an upgrade to a suite. It was very clean. I was sorry I was not staying longer to enjoy all the amenities. The staff were very helpful. The only drawback is the noise along the walkways […] but this was only early morning. I travel a lot and I would rather put up with a little noise but have the certainty of good quality clean bed linen. The breakfast was also good. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place for the price"
This is a great place to stay in Marin for the price if you're just passing through - nice pool and good people at the front desk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
All of the upgrades at the hotel are quite stunning, comfy and relaxing. Staff are more than helpful. Pool and hot tub are situated in a lovely garden. I stay here often.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"great for family vacation!"
After looking for hotels in San Francisco and not finding anything cheap or at least with free parking, we were able to find this hotel just over the Golden Gate bridge. We stayed at this hotel on our San Francisco family trip. Can't complain. We shopped at the Vons store 2 blocks away and purchased food for breakfast and dinner which we prepared in […] our full-out kitchen and dinner table. This hotel is really a home away from home. Its a full condo if you think about it. Full bedroom separated from the bathroom, full living room with sofa-bed and full kitchen with all amenities, cookware, dishes, plates, cups, large refrigerator, microwave, and table for 6, thats just to get started. My kids loved the pool and jacuzzi. Plus they have an outdoor lounge with contemporary couches and fireplace outside where we relaxed at night watching tv on their outdoor mounted televisions. Highly recommend this place to every one going to the Bay area. During the day we obtained a taxi and it drove us to the ferry station and then the ferry to S.F.

Very comfortable beds and easy to get around to all the places we wanted to go. I appreciate having so much space and the kitchen. The morning breakfast was very good. I will recommend this place to others and return again myself. Thank you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Well worth it"
We originally booked at a hotel down the street and changed to this hotel to save some money on our trip. This hotel was perfect for us, We stayed in a small apartment it seemed, with kitchen, stove, separate bedroom and living room, etc. The hotel was clean and had all the basics. There was even a 'gathering' area outside wtih a firepit and grills, […] outdoor tv and lounge area. We were travelling to the Golden State national recreation park, about 15 minutes away. Our main issue was the tennants above us that were doing some kind of cardio workout for four days straight it seemed. But we talked to the front desk and they took care of it. The hotel was in a great location, close to the highway, some shopping if needed, and walking to a couple restaurants. If you are looking to go to San Francisco, the travelling costs are a pain (parking, tolls, public transportation). Though if travelling about the city we would definitely stay here again.

"loud TV noise"
We called the front desk twice, asking them to ask the person in the room below us to turn down the TV. She responded she will, which meant we had the right culprit. Unfortunately it never happened. At 10PM the sound was turned down but was kept on for the WHOLE night. we will never go back to this place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great dog-friendly hotel, comfortable and relaxing"
Elevator near my 2nd-floor room was iffy to begin with - and then I got stuck in it, in between floors! Yikes! After it was fixed, it behaved oddly the next day. Now I'm on the ground floor - whew.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was very comfortable. The room was huge - bigger than your average 1bdrm apartment! Complimentary breakfast was slightly understated, but satisfying. Great for longer stays or if you need extra space.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very clean, comfortable and convienient"
Wonderful place to stay! Very friendly staff, helpful, considerate. Great pool and hot tub! Overall, quite relaxing and an easy walk to restaurants, etc. I stay here any time I am in town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I have stayed here before and enjoyed our stay. When my toddler needed to take a bath there was no plug to keep the water in the bathtub. Took awhile to resolve issue for taking a bath. Movie channels did not work in our room and was told could not be fixed because maintenance was not available on the weekends. Would stay again but the service to fix […] the two issues we had could had been better! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't miss that driveway!"
There is no area in the front of the building to pull your car in and check in. You need to go in driveway to the side, which from the South, was not well lit. Given I was arriving after dark, I would have preferred more lighting on that side of the building so my walk to the front and back to my car felt a little safer. The room was WONDERFUL though! […] Very roomy, with a kitchenette and small dining table. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
hotel is a little overpriced for just a pass thru place to stay. room was nice and recently updated. room definitely needs some sound proofing. parking is a nightmare...Genuine Expedia guest review
"What you expect for a mom & pop operation."
The breakfast & pool were OK. Large rooms. The walls were thin, so it made sleep difficult. Also, it wasn't easy to get the room cleaned if you missed the one time the maid was going by (or even get clean towels).Genuine Expedia guest review
A lot of thought has gone into the remodel of the hotel. THe studio room was well appointed, the bath towels and bedding were were very nice. However, although the refrigerator was set on high, the cooling mechanism was faulty, causing spoilage of all items stored there. Additionally, there was a very loud buzzing of a ceiling electrical fixture (located […] right outside the bedroom) which was so bothersome that sleep was impossible. The only solution was to turn up the TV to drown out the sound. A call to the front desk resulted in no resolution. Another bothersome item was the headboard, which banged against the wall with the least provocation, even turning over to turn off the light. There probably isn't much that can be done about the hotel entrance due to limited space. However, as a first time guest, it was difficult to find the driveway entrance, questionable where to park, and difficult to find the front desk for check in. A return visit to the hotel would simplify the process, but more attention to detail would encourage returning guests. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Easy to get back onto the freeway, and close to the Golden Gate. Lots of shops around that area, and eating establishmentsGenuine Expedia guest review
"great place even tho they are remodling."
loved it. got there after a long drive with a toddler from disneyland and was pleasently surprised that they had given us a free upgrade from a studio to a two bedroom suite with a kitchen and living room. SCORE! TODDLER GETS HIS OWN ROOM! so happy. The hotel was fairly empty and the weather in san fran was beautiful! everything is in the midst of being […] remodled but we never heard the workers the entire time. parking i can imagine would get pretty crowded during the summer months but we had no problem in the middle of october. neighborhood is great and very close to restaurants and a shopping mall. breakfast was great. room was clean tho we couldnt figure out how to get the heater to work. dont think it was working. but all the updates that they have done to the grounds and the rooms are great, you can really tell that they are trying to go from run down apartments building to resort style.

the hotel suite was spacious and clean. There is no air conditioner but the climate in Marin seldon requires an air conditioner. The swimming pool is large and well-maintained. The breakfast is simple but adequate. If you are on business for several days, the rooms are very good for being able to get work done in your room. The full kitchen is also […] a great feature if you are staying for several days. There is some noise from the freeway but I also kept my window open. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for a nice gateways"
The hotel overall is really nice :) very clean and spacious, however it looks bigger on the pictures but this hotel is really nice . They rooms come with pretty much the basic things u would need just in case you need to cook ... That was nice .... Free breakfast every morning is very healthy and ladies there are very nice and amiable. It is maybe […] 10-15 minutes away from the golden bridge.... Which was nice. Only thing .... I really didn't see any younger people staying there ... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"This was a disappointng experience."
I stayed here several years ago and expected the same level of service and hotel conditions. What a disappointment! The front desk is tiny and the staff was too busy to even ask to be helpful beyond assigning rooms. My room was about 20 feet from the very busy 101, and there is no air conditioning in any of the 'suites.' When I arrived, the room had […] not been opened and the California sun had blazed directly into the room all afternoon. It was a furnace that couldn't be cooled. The windows are double-paned so they blocked some of the freeway noise when closed, but of course I needed to leave them open to attempt to cool down the room, which took hours. I could not hear the TV for the freeway noise. I was told that I could not change rooms because I have a dog and pets are only allowed these back rooms right on the freeway. I think handicapped persons may also be relegated to these rooms because that's also where the wheelchair ramp, handicapped parking, and elevator are located. Having said all this, I don't actually know how you could escape freeway noise with open windows anywhere in this motel, except possibly in the very front of the building. With Expedia's help, I cancelled the next night's reservation and moved to the Extended Stay in San Rafael. What a relief! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"perfect place to get some work done"
We stayed for the night and spent the morning working remotely- lots of room in the suite to do that. Breakfast was good. We had a quiet night though it was evident that the walls were a bit thin. Hotel was very clean but showing signs of wear especially carpets. Public spaces, pool area, breakfast room, etc were clean and tidy. Service friendly and […] good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The pool and grounds were maintained quite well, and are very pretty. The bathroom had a stained ceiling (large stain) from previous water damage, which looked as if it might have had a bit of mold forming. The bathtub was warped, making it a bit difficult to stand in, because it was raised in the center - but moved when stepped on. It should be noted […] that there is no air conditioning in this hotel, although they do provide fans, which worked well during the time we were there. Perhaps the hotel was full, and that is why they needed to put us in the room that they did. The hotel is located well, with an easy walk to good restaurants and a charming outdoor shopping mall.

"I was in a city I did not know ...."
When I got to the hotel I was a bit worried about the outside appearance as it looked more like an apartment building than a hotel. I came in late, was dead tired, in pain from arthirits and starving. (Not in a good mood) The staff gave me great service despite my less than friendly mood, was sweet enough to bring me extra blankets and pillows as soon […] as I hit my room, and was invisible except when needed. The grounds were lovely with a wonderful outdoor room featuring a fireplace, big screen T.V. and sitting areas over looking the pool. This is a all weather room which gives you the feeeling of being at a resort. The room was so clean, comfortable and inclusive with a full kitchen, sitting area, fold out couch two bedrooms and lots of closet space. The beds were like home. COmfortable and soothing with great linen. The first night, I needed that comfort and had a great nights sleep. Food is close by and the movie theater is across the street. Freeway is a block away. The best part is my dog was welcomed. Thank you Marin Suites for a great two days. This was a business trip and we were dead tired each night. It was great to have this to come to at the end of a very busy day. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The suites of this place are HUGE. With a separate bedroom and a very descent sized kitchen (which we did not use). A very pleasant surprise. The complementary breakfast was good, but a little crowded and chaotic. Staff was friendly and very helpful. We checked in early, but staff made sure to have a room ready asap. As for location, there is a little […] mall within walking distance with some restaurants. SF downtown is just a short drive. I would definately recommend this hotel.

"Don't stay here!"
I stayed here about 10 years ago and it was great, but it seems that the rooms haven't been changed. The furniture was old, the bed soft and saggy, the tv old with bad picture, and the room smelled bad/old. Very disappointing. I found another room at a very nice hotel for the same price the next night. Fix up your rooms, Marin Suites!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great for Families"
Their two bedroom suites were great for a family on vacation. The only downsides were inadequate sound dampening--we could hear our neighbors quite well. The hotel is being refurbished, so the finished parts are nice, but still has a dated feel to it. The staff was very helpful including helping return a lost teddy bear. I would definitely stay aga […] in. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Beware road noise in some rooms"
I had a late flight so not many rooms were left and it had been a warm day , up to 90 degrees. The room was huge but with no AC, opening windows was the only way to cool it down, and the noise from 101 was really loud. Fortunately, the hotel was able (and more importantly, willing) to let me switch to an interior room, which was lovely. I really enjoyed […] the pool, which was warmer than the one at the best western next door, though it's a lot smaller. But for me the temperature is a big part of the pleasure. Great space for families-- true suites with two rooms and full kitchens. If I was sure to get an inside room I would love to stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

What a nice, simple and comfortable property outside of the city. Large room with windows that open...great cross breezes, nice pool and good restaurant / bar in adjacent strip mall.Genuine Expedia guest review

"The redone suites are first rate. Easy parking."
I recommend the hotel to anyone whoi wants to be close tto San Franciscio or the winw country. Excellent, redone suites. Close to shopping, nice pool and garden area. Exceptional price for what is offeredGenuine Expedia guest review
Overall, this is a good hotel. Things to consider when you pick your dates to stay here. The rooms have no A/C. The rooms are a little warm in the afternoons. The room was clean and our 2 bedroom was spacious. The maid service was questionable since we had to go to the lobby nearly each day to get hand towels & wash clothes because the maid service […] didn't leave any. We had a window that didn't have a screen but since we were on the 3rd floor, it didn't cause a problem. You have to leave the windows open to keep the room somewhat cool with no A/C.

it was a one bedroom apartment. I supposed that was ok but it was shabby and run down. The pool area was ok. The comp breakfast was fair. It is designed for folks who are staying a period of time or have large amounts of kids and need the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
A quiet and pleasant hotel hidden off of 101, behind the noises of the freeway traffic and commercial business. So convenient for visiting Marin sites as well as walking distance to restaurants. Good breakfast to start the day.Genuine Expedia guest review
