I really liked this hotel. We stayed here and took a ferry from Larkspur into the city. It was farther then I wanted to walk from the Ferry building, esp at night, but the drive was only about a mile so it was fine. The suites are big and had a very useable kitchen equipped with everything we needed. The decorations (rugs, drapes, furniture) were kind […] of ugly and it lacked a real comfortable feel but other then that it was great. The pool is salt water (much nicer then chlorine) and was great as well as the jacuzzi. It also has a very nice back courtyard with nice garden/landscaping and a fire pit, as well as BBQ's it looked like were free to use. It probably lacks the super nice new, fancy feel other hotels in the area might have, but it is priced right and definitely a good value if you don't need luxury.

"Good spot not far from all the sites"
Good hotel, very friendly and helpful staff, clean room. Only stayed one night, but was easy to get to off the 101 and the staff was very friendly and helpful with info regarding the areaGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Value, Oversized Suite"
Was impressed with the size of the suite. Didn't realize it would include full kitchen and dining area. Complex is a little dated but hotel made the most of it with newer décor, furnishings, etc. Grounds, pool, continental breakfast a huge plus. Some freeway noise but did not affect our enjoyment of the room. Would stay there again for sure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great space, amenities, lots of towels, waist high bathroom sink, FAN which I was definitely pleased about!!!! No exhaust fan in bathroom or dishwashing liquid in kitchen (not entirely significant). Would stay again for sure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place to relax..."
Definitely this hotel is one of the best places I ever stayed.. the location is right next to the freeway, and shopping center with walking distance... One of the most important things of the hotel was the wonderful attention from the staff, they were very helpful... the pool and the jacuzzi, just perfect to relax after long day in the San Francisco […] streets... Definitely I'm gonna come back to Marine Suites for my next vacations with my whole family!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"family friendly great room"
This was a perfect set up for our big family of 7. Each suite was a generous size, and the kitchen made it convenient for us to bring in our own snacks and drinks. The staff was friendly and professional. The pool and sanctuary were great places to relax. The only thing I found odd was that the cleaning staff came to our room between 4-5pm. We had come […] back from a long day out, thinking we would relax a bit before going out to dinner. Instead, we had to go to the pool (not the worst thing) and wait till they were finished with our room. My experience is that the hotel rooms are usually cleaned late morning/lunchtime. Other than that, it was a very good experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Next to freeway"
It was noisy, close to the freeway. Since there was no air conditioning, I had to keep the windows open so they couldn't block the noise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Positives - Large room with good shower, comfortable bed, lots of storage plus a desk, kitchen, and dining table. Clean. Inner courtyard was well landscaped and very useable - included pool, large shaded lounge, gas grill, fire pit, and multiple tables/chairs for outdoor dining. Large mall with good resturants and grocery store only 1 block away. Minor […] complaint - only 2 place settings in the kitchen - no extra silverware, or dishes, or cooking pots, or can openers or corkscrews. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Plenty of riim"
Hotel is lovely, staff is friendly and helpful and rooms/suites are spacious for family travel. Five of us were very comfortable and has privacy. Keep in mind, however, hotel is over bridge from SanFrancisco and not actually in it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Big suites. Comfortable beds. Only bad thing was the 4 pm Check in. Tired from the road and wanted an earlier check in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Alternative to SF High Hotel Prices"
My husband and I spent a week in the SF area. This hotel was the perfect location for us. Just 20-30 min outside SF and conveniently located near Sausalito, Marin Headlands, Muir Woods and Napa/Sonoma, all great areas to explore. Room was very roomy, kitchen area included full sz fridge. Grounds were nice. Laundry facilities a plus. Breakfast std fare […] of breads, cereal, and waffles. Shopping/restaurants next door. Easy access to freeway. Only negative was elevator was hard to get in and out of with luggage rack. Would stay here again when visiting SF. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent Room - Close to 101 - No AC"
The room was very clean except for the coffee mugs on the dining table. They had a ring of something vaguely sticky holding them down. Not a big deal to rinse and wipe them as I would have done that anyway. The staff was helpful and the pool was cleaned daily while I was there. Parking, while free and never completely full, was sometimes difficult to […] come by. I was in room 431 and the restaurant next door was noisy around 12-2am and sometimes and the garbage pickup frequently woke me up. Neither of those would have been an issue if the room had A/C, but since it didn't the windows had to stay open. Additionally, the room came with two box fans and a ceiling fan, but there was only one outlet on the wall with the windows. I stayed here for a conference in San Raphael and for that, the location was great. I would probably stay here again if I couldn't stay at the conference hotel.

"Overall enjoyable experience"
Not going to lie, I favored this hotel. That is all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We came as a family to SF for a Father's Day Giants game. Marin suites was a huge savings over hotels in the city, and it was a fun trip on the convenient Larkspur ferry to the game.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right off the highway but we couldn't hear it."

"Staying in the area"
The Marin Suites is a very nice hotel. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The desk personnel were helpful and courteous. The grounds layout, the pool, hottub and adjacent area were very attractive and well kept. The only problem/objetion concerned the bathroom exhuast fan. It was connected to the light switch so was on whenever the light […] was turned on. And it was excessively noisy, to the point of distraction after a few minutes. This was especially disquieting late at night if you had to use the bathroom when your spouse was sleeping.. Recommend that the fan be updated, room 421, and that a separate switch be installed for the exhaust fan in the bathroom. Other than the fan issue, it was a very pleasant stay and I would recommend the hotel to travelers in the area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
NO A/C, Some rooms right on US 101. very noisy. Clean enough, large roomsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Highly recommend this very nice hotel"
We had a wonderful 2 night stay. Room and continental breakfast were excellent. Fitness room could use some help.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Inexpensive, comfortable lodging"
I enjoyed the stay. The have a nice pool and hot tub. The doors and windows open to the central area, and the rooms are relatively large with a small kitchen. The people were amazing; all were very friendly and helpful. The downside: no air conditioning, so the room was *really* hot during the day. And the exercise room equipment was junk. Old, and […] 3 of the 4 machines didn't work, all had broken pieces. Over all, a nice inexpensive family place for non-summer months. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The two bedroom spacious suites make this tastefully modeled hotel very practical for adult family members and friends to stay together. The location is convenient for touring Sausalito and the Muirwoods.Genuine Expedia guest review
"No Air Conditioning! Stay only during cool weather"
Starting with the Negatives: 1.) No Air Conditioning. My room had all the windows closed and the heater was on high. I called the front desk and was told "We don't have air conditioning." It would have been helpful if the clerk had told me there was a box fan in the closet, which I found at 11:30PM. 2.) Parking - half of lot was roped off for repaving, […] so there was not enough parking for those staying in hotel. 3.) Repaving of parking lot. I had to have all windows open to maintain a manageable temperature in the room... until the repaving of the parking lot started at about 7:30AM. Then I had to close all windows since the entire place smelled like hot tar. 4.) I can't believe that the hotel would not advertise "No A/C, and Parking is being Resurfaced"...if they had, I would have known and accepted the situation. With no warning, I think the decent thing to do would have been to have offered a refund or future free night. The hotel is adjacent to a freeway. Between the noise and the heat I got about 3 hours of sleep. 5.) The mattress was worn out and tilting. I had to keep moving to find a flat spot. Positives: The hotel staff was completely reasonable about refunding the remaining 3 nights I had booked. The hotel is old, but well appointed. I'd stay there again as long as the Bay Area is not experiencing a heat wave. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not what I expected"
It was for a 1 night business trip. Lots of long term guests, pretty loud, especially the younger crowd. No AC in the room, it was very hot and uncomfortable, they do provide a fan, but that didn't cut it. It's an older place with a mediocre attempt at a refurbishment. Limited TV channels. Would not repeat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pros - Large rooms, it appears this used to be an apartment complex. They are newly redone, with nice upgrades and modern touches. Nice pool area. You can walk to a great restaurant (Brick & Bottle) and book store. Friendly staff. Cons - paper thin walls mean you can hear your neighbors TV. Don't be fooled by the "upgraded breakfast" it's the same food […] every hotel serves, nothing worth eating in the Bay Area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Oldie but goodie"
This hotel is remodeled so it is an older style but they've done a nice job. We had a one night stay in order to attend a wedding and they accommodated us by letting us check in early. This cost extra, new for us. It was easy on and off from the freeway. Nearby is a wonderful walking/biking trail, lots of shops and a movie theater.Genuine Expedia guest review
A pleasant experience. Dated. Pool is great, especially since it was 6' deep not the usual 5'. Should have mirrors in each room. Very clean. Needs more dishes. Pool towel supply generous.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Going to Giants Game"
We were able to check in before the Giants game, then easily take the ferry out of Larkspur and get back after the game without a hitch. We were able to take our breakfast out into the courtyard in the morning which was also very pleasant. All in all an excellent experience. Great staff and great room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Centrally located to explore"
The staff was friendly and helpful, the location is close to many areas to see as well as close to the ferry to get to SF. Only complaint is that the hotel walls must be very thin with little or no insulation as you can hear neighbors below, above and next door - if they are loud you are in trouble. We were there on the 2 hottest days that this area […] has had forever and there was no air conditioning. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
They upgraded me to a nicer suite. It was on the pool side but I really didn't hear alot of noise from the pool. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We got there around 10:00 pm with 2 kids after a 6 hours flight, i had to clean the bathroom myself before getting my kids on the shower, it was very dirty and full of hairs on the floor and shower, the carpet on the unit was dirty and smelled bad, we had to leave the windows open to get rid of the smell, the room that they gave us was across fron the […] expresway and was very noise, the kitchen floor was sticky, the hotel is very old and needs renovations!!!

"Return as good as first stay"
We enjoyed our first stay in a much larger room. This one worked out just as well. It was smaller, but still suited all our needs. I must say I don't understand the hotel trend that puts really heavy bed coverings on. As I moved ours with help I thought, what would I do if I was a little weaker and alone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Convenient and spacious"
We used the pool and hot tub a lot--that made it feel like a vacation. Hotel staff was always friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Family hotel with heated pool."
We stayed 4 nights with a 8 and 10 year old. Rooms are really big, kitchens are more than you need probably, the pool is beautiful and warm and the hot tub is too. THough the facility feels a little outdated, and rooms sort of lack warmth... they compensate with a wonderful staff, thorough cleanliness, and a half decent breakfast. It's a good deal compared […] to the SF hotels, if you have a car can zip into the city. Limited free tv options (movies available for $5-$10). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

amazing beautiful quiet quaint...not so pretty from the outside but the rooms were perfect and the pool and hot tub were just perfect, out 3 year old son had a great time...everyone was so nice and friendly...definitely stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was not terribly impressed with the outside of the hotel. The parking and access to lobby are not typical. Also, the lobby is small and uninviting. However, when I entered my suite, I immediately relaxed and felt that I could make myself at home. The unit was unusually large, and everything was spotless and well-working. I was sorry that I'd not come […] earlier in the day to enjoy the space. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
For once, the actual place was BETTER than the photos showed....nice grounds inside the hotel made it look more like a mini resort...the room was set up with a small kitchen and tables, fully set with place mates and silverware for two people, very inviting. The hotel is upgrading with art and photos in the rooms as well. I would stay there again, and […] in fact extended my stay for two days. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very convenient location"
Close to shopping, freeways, etcetera Bed is very comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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

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
