"GREAT PLACE TO STAY"
HAD A WONDERFUL TIME, NICE LOCATION, OUR 10TH ANNIVERSARY, VERY ROMANTICGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely, quaint hotel right off 101"
The best thing about Inn Marin is also the worst: it's right off the highway and, it's right off the highway. Darling little cottage-like rooms in a row, beautiful soap, shampoo, etc in nice wall dispensers (much more efficient), unbelievably clean, comfortable beds, WOOD floors!!! An old place that has been gorgeously redone. I wish the pool opened […] earlier. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ranch Style Motel with Garden Setting"
We loved our stay! All rooms are ground level and we heard NO noise from neighboring rooms. Our room (132) faced the freeway and there was some traffic noise, but not bothersome to us. The grounds are beautiful with big lawn area and tropical plants. Ricky's Restaurant (on-site) served us poolside while the kids had fun swimming. Nice menu--pricey, […] but good food, also kid's menu. We enjoyed live jazz during dinner. Also complimentary breakfast in the morning with make-your-own waffles, bagels, cereal, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, fruit, etc., inside Ricky's, with recorded jazz, which was a nice way to start our day. Our room was very tastefully decorated and clean! Contemporary colors, nice fixtures, beautiful bamboo flooring, all looked like it had been remodeled yesterday (the manager at the front desk said it was done 5 years ago, so they must be keeping it up well). Our room in the "highway facing" wing had the original brick exposed (painted), which we thought added to the charm. We were told the rooms in the rear had been sheetrocked and textured because some guests complain about the brick. I personally prefer the charming, older feel of this 1950's rancho, which in no way seemed stale or dowdy. Just lovely. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Design, Great Value"
Hidden gem - clean, hardwood floors, and decent sized space. A great value for those who want to visit neighboring Napa and Sonoma without blowing their entire budget on a hotel room. Pleasantly suprised all around.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great stay at a great price."
The hotel didn't get great reviews, but the location was very convienent. The hotel is just off the highway and from the entrance you can hear the traffic, the rooms are behind and no traffic noise could be heard. The pool and lawn area are beautiful. The restaurant was nice and the bar had live music. We had a very enjoyable visit.Genuine Expedia guest review
Perfect spot to spend the night on my trip. Bedding was more than comfortable - slept like a baby. Would definitely go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Scary at night. Older architecture, furniture needs to be updated. Vibrates from freeway. Needs dual pane windows. Staff not warm. Charged my credit card when room was prepaid. Had to call to get it removed. Charge is based on location. IMHO try to avoid.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Marin's Hidden Gem"
What a great kept secret in Marin! We stayed here after a hiking trip to Stinson Beach instead of traveling back home. Although the hotel didn't quite look like the picture we were pleasantly surprised when we got into our hotel room. The rooms have been updated in the last 3 years and were impressively clean! The restaurant that is attached to the […] hotel was AWESOME (Rickey's) The food was 4/5 star worthy, the bar staff was great & the surprise Jazz band that played the night we stayed was a great end to the night! I would say the only down fall is that the room walls are paper thin, we were able to hear a crying baby next door to us. I would definitely stay here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"better value than business class hotels"
This is a really gorgeous hotel for the price. I would much rather spend my money here than at some awful doubletree. The room was gorgeous and I was so happy to have free wifi and a free fridge. The pool is lovely, but the hot tub wasn't hot at all. Also, I think my room was haunted.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Easy access to Sonoma, Mt. Tamalpais, and SF"
We had a nice, relaxing getaway. We will definitely come back! The hot tub was not quite hot enough, though. Otherwise we were very happy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This sweet little motel has great potential and some nice touches, but while it was tidy, our room was not clean. The laminate floors were sticky and there was an odor in both the room and the continental breakfast area. Staff was very nice, neighborhood seemed a bit dicey.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
There was trouble with the Direct TV. The faucet fell off the shower.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Grounds really nice. Bathroom very small. Too small for family.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable, Clean & Attractive"
I was really impressed with this hotel. Beautifully decorated rooms, lovely grounds. I will be back. Ate dinner at the adjoining restaurant. It was delicious. The complimentary breakfast was much better than average.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect stop for the night"
We were staying overnight en route from San Francisco to Sonoma. This is the perfect location just off Hwy 101. The grounds are really beautiful with flowers and foliage, and the rooms are clean and surprisingly modern. A few of the lights wouldn't work in the room, but there is a solid chance it was user error. Overall the room was comfortable, clean, […] and we got lucky to stay in the back of the property off the highway where it was quiet. Spent the next morning having breakfast in Novato, such a great town! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room was filthy"
Just disgustingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will not stay there again"
This motel looked like it was 100 years old and not as nice as a motel 6. The service was bad. TV did not work and the repair man spent at least 20 minutes fixing it. He could never get the wifi working, so I had no internet. The rooms were remolded but the beds were soft and the pillows flat. I was told there was a gym. I went and it had 3 or 4 machines […] that were very old. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Restaurant a winner"
Ricky's restaurant was terrific and a pleasant surprise to the end of a long day.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel did a very nice job with the wedding. The outdoor setting was beautiful and the service great. The hotel was very helpful when I needed my room changed. Thank you for a lovely stay. One suggestion. Most of the light bulbs in my room were out - difficult to read in bed or put on make-up.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location for Fun"
We enjoyed our stay. The garden setting is very relaxing. The pool side music on Friday night was fun too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Happy nites sleep...."
The room was immaculate, quiet, & comfortable. I felt my stay was appreciated and my room fit for a guest not just a no name weary traveler. Surprisingly this was a dog friendly Inn. The dog owners were very respectful and not a woof to be heard from either the bi or quadrupeds.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth the price, but nice."
First we called the hotel directly and were told there were no rooms. Minutes later we were able to book online! The rooms & bathroom are pretty small, but they are nice & clean. I like that there are recycle bins in the rooms. The back side of the hotel where you park and go into the room is totally sketchy looking, but the front is really nice. The […] courtyard was nice, but we were not able to enjoy it due to a wedding being there at the time-I feel like we should've been given a discount for having to listen to the wedding until 10pm and not being able to enjoy the courtyard or the pool! The neighborhood is nothing exciting, but we were able to get good Chinese food nearby. Not worth the price they charge, but a nice place. Easy access to Hwy 101.

"This is a MOTEL"
For the cost you'd think you'd get a great location or a beautiful room. What you get is a motel off the highway. Pictures make this place look much nicer than it is. While the staff may be friendly and the rooms clean, Novato has nothing to offer and this motel is no diamond in rough. I would avoid Novato and this hotel all together. If you're looking […] to do wine country, you're better off in a junky hotel in Sonoma or Napa. It will be the same price, and at least you'd get a good location.

"Bates Motel revisited"
Location of Inn Marin was good. Surrounding area unappealing with dilapidated/abandoned California Bay Nursery building next to the hotel. Hotel shower smelled like a locker room and hair was left inside the coffee maker tray. Heavy, scratchy bedspreads kept sliding off because they were too small for the double beds. Plastic bag full of dirty diapers […] left outside the door of the adjoining room was an unpleasant sight to say the least. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and convenient"
I stayed here over a weekend for a friend's wedding. Inn Marin is not a resort hotel; it's a motor inn. With that in mind, it serves its purpose very nicely. It has very easy access to Highway 101, the rooms are simple but very clean, and the complimentary "continental" breakfast is satisfactory. I stayed in room 223. The bathroom is tiny and could […] benefit from a fan to clear the post-shower humidity, but was otherwise functional. The king bed was very comfortable, with a firm mattress -- but the pillows were a bit soft for my taste. The breakfast buffet had cereal, bagels and toast, orange juice, tea and coffee, and was suitable for the level of accommodations. I did find it odd that they had real plates but paper bowls for cereal, and real forks and spoons but only plastic knives -- not sure what the motley assortment of utensils was about, but otherwise breakfast was fine -- and included in the price. If you're looking for a resort hotel to relax, this isn't it, but it's not trying to be -- it's trying to be a motor inn, and for that, it succeeds rather well.

"Relaxing get away"
There for a wedding. Surprised couldn't hear the freeway From the court yard. Very pretty and relaxing. Had A cool waffle maker in the continental breakfast. Only annoying thing was our door to the courtyard was broken So we had to walk around.Genuine Expedia guest review
"My Stay at the Inn Marn"
The online advertising picture of the inn looks beautiful, but in person this place looks much older and appears to be in need of general maintenance. Almost looks run-down in certain areas. Overall, our one-day stay was fine (we really only showered and slept there). I went against my first choice of getting a hotel and chose this inn because they […] offered continental breakfast. However, the food turned out to be a HUGE disappointment in selection choices, service, and taste. I regretted that decision later. The hotel staff was very helpful and courteous though, and they offered free wifi. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cute, calm place"
Unique, quiet. Not full when I stayed, so may have been more quiet than busy season.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place for kids"
The hotel was clean and staff were friendly. Our favorite thing about the hotel was the pool side dining. The kids could swim while we ordered happy hour food and drinks. They also had live music on Friday night. The free breakfast was also a plus. We would stay again. Only about 9 miles to Infineon Raceway too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Less fancy than pictures, but acceptable and clean"
Based on the pictures, this hotel looks a little bit fancier and newer than it actually is. However, the staff, reasonable price and very clean room made it a fine one-night stay-over. POSITIVES: Remodeled bathroom, newer flat screen TV, new linens and comfortable pillows; friendly front-desk staff; cute if a bit kitchey decor; everything extremely […] clean and neat. NEGATIVES: Right next to the loud freeway (this is, of course, a positive if you just want a stop-over type place); old single pane windows with no screens; rooms open right onto the parking lot. Price was pretty reasonable too. A lot of these older hotels are not as nicely remodeled or appointed as this one is; that said, it's still an older motel. Our stay was perfectly pleasant for a quick overnight but I probably would have chosen a more modern hotel if I was staying for several days. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The property has made some efforts to redecorate their rooms. Unfortunately, I was given a disability room (not requested) and all i wanted to do was take a bath...no bath tub. The room's hardwood floors were nice and the room was clean with a newer flatscreen TV, but the bedding and bathroom fixtures were sub-par. The bed was uncomfortable and lumpy. […] The bathroom had an older toilet seat that had cigarette burns. The property is reminiscent of a roadside motel. It could be a comfortable stay for a family on a road-trip. For the purposes of my trip, it didn't quite fit my needs. The photographs of the entrance are a bit deceiving. I had expected something a little more upgraded for the price. Disappointing.

"Over Rated, Over Priced"
The outdated rooms had walls that were paper thin and the mattress' and pillows were old and saggy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely place to stay in Novato"
Just a great little place to stay in Novatio. It is extremely well-kept and very clean; the staff are friendly and just plain nice. We ate at the restaurant which had great food and very reasonable prices. It is close to the freeway, so I would suggest request a room toward the back of the property where it is very quiet. We will definitely stay here […] again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Wonderful - First choice for next visit to Novato - A suggestion for a microwave in the room - Staff very nice and pleasant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is overprized. You get average standard of a Quality Inn for a far too high price. Breakfast is more than modest, bedding is disappointing, just an old blanket, weak internet signal and the room was dark and rather cold.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Updated and comfortable"
An older tourist motel updated and comfortably appointed. I will stay there again in the future.Genuine Expedia guest review
"First World Dog Problem: Cant stretch on hardwood"
Booked a room here while racing at Infineon. Chose it because it was dog friendly. The place was amazing. Hardwood floors, great furniture, clean bed and bathroom. The outdoor setting and room design were what you expect from a high end place. Two minor issues: 1. No mat at the door. Not really a problem for us in the end, but we felt bad walking […] into the room with muddy feet (it was raining that weekend) 2. Shower didn't drain well, but not to the point that it caused problems. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Inn Marine- Charming little Inn"
We stayed at Inn Marine for a night. We love the fact that the hotel is very green (recycle) and the room is very clean. The hotel surrounding is very charming. The morning breakfast was good. We would've like the bathroom to be bigger. Also, since there is hard wood floor, it would have been nice to have slippers to wear. Otherwise, we enjoyed our […] stay very much!

"Great base to see Golden Gate Bridge"
Nice comfortable rooms. Close to Sausalito and it is good base to explore the area. Nice breakfast which is free and it includes waffles. Look for a room back from the freewayGenuine Expedia guest review
I wanted to plan a birthday celebration for friends and family to get together, and Inn Marin was a good choice for location, price and ambiance. I was very pleased with everything. For a hotel right off the highway (easy access), it was surprisingly charming and comfortable with personal touches and eco design details. The restaurant was also wonderful. […] I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comforts of Home"
Love this hotel and the atmosphere around the gardens, restaurant and lobby area. For us, this location is very convenient to visit Bay Area, family and friends. Rickey's has great food too. The rooms are clean and comfortable, very cozy! Not wild about pet friendly places but our rooms have never been a problem. I love pets, don't get me wrong. So […] far, Inn Marin has the best of both choices. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Prime Rib and Poolside Jazz Dinner"
The grounds are comfortable for jazz dinner outdoors. There is a jazz dinner and the prime rib is smoked to perfection! The wine list is limited but all five star! Dinner and wine for $45. Quality feels like $100! Cabins need updating but great place to unwind on grounds and close to Sonoma and Napa at a very affordable price! Check out fireplace in […] lobby to plan day's trip. Feels like home. Great value! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The Hotel Inn Marin"
Close to Sonoma down town where I was having a Soccer Tournament just 20 minutes away from it. I just wanted to pass the night close to it and no need to drive for an hour.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
1. Not an Inn but a motel. 2. On bad side of highway. 3. Stay at a Days Inn or Motel 6 for half the price and same room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ringworm... Not what I expected."
I saw this hotel's website and it appeared to be a quaint villa-esque Inn that had a lot of potential. However when I arrived it was quite the let down. The hotel is basically just an upscale roadside motel. The hotels exterior was not very attractive but the rooms seemed clean and had their own style. However days after my stay I found that they were […] not clean. This revelation came in the form of ringworm, which could have only come from the hotel. I thought maybe I may have gotten the ringworm somewhere else but when i looked up the exposure to appearance time it fell right onto the day i arrived in this hotel. So the appearance of cleanliness in this hotel is just that, an appearance. This area has many other hotels which would be much more worth your while, but if your into plain overpriced 50's left overs that appear clean but aren't, stay here.

"Decent place for one night stop"
the one complaint I'd have is that the noise from the freeway is quite prominent making it difficult to sleep, but I did knowingly rent a freeway facing room. The breakfast was decent and the room was o.k. Not a place I'd stay for more than a night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel Inn Marin was in a very convenient location for our visit to Novato and Sausalito. It was a good experience. Nice grounds, clean and stuff was friendly. It was reasonably priced. We did not get to enjoy their pool as it was not heated but it would be good to visit that area in Summer months and we'll definitely keep it in mind for future travels […] as well as recommend it to our friends.
