This hotel is no where near anything but San Quentin. There is no amenities in the room, you can request most stuff upon check in. No ice on the property. No store within walking distance. No ice bucket available. Housekeeping is by request and an extra charge. Request the top floor and a corner as I must have had a toddler running a marathon above me. The room is large, clean and comfortable. I would stay again for the price but I'll bring an Igloo. ⚓️

I arrived at 10:30pm. No one was at the front check in. There was a service phone that I used. I know I was on this phone for at least 25 minutes before the gentleman came from the back of the building where he had been smoking. At this time it didn't take long. Got to the room the air conditioning or heat didn't work. He did move us. The mattress on the beds were so hard. Definitely not pillow top. Barely slept. Would never stay there again

I was looking forward to using the gym and hot tub. The gym was basically non-existant, 1 old spin bike and some contraption that that resembled a cheap home combo thing stuffed in the corner that didn't even look completely assembled. It was not a gym. The one time I went out to use the hot tub their were people smoking right next to it, no thanks. That brings me to next issue, There seemed to be smokers everywhere! Outside of every exit. I requested a non smoking room, it was but it shared the same floor as smoking rooms. As soon as the doors to the elevator lobby of the floor my room was on opened it just reeked!

The feedback provided in your review is much appreciated. We are very disappointed to hear that we did not meet your expectations. The pool/Jacuzzi area is non-smoking, for this reason there are no ashtrays available and the same applies to all hallways. Unfortunately, some guests do not observe these rules. In response to your feedback, we will be more watchful to make sure this policy is thoroughly enforced. We will definitely check with our staff and will schedule the necessary staff meetings. Thank you again for your input as it will help us to provide better service. I do hope that you will return to our hotel, or any other Extended Stay Hotels location in the future.

The staff were friendly. The hotel was in an industrial area without any services on site. No restaurants nearby or in the hotel. No shuttle service to local restaurants. No vending machines. Most minimal crummy rolls and coffee for breakfast food service. Not even cream for coffee, just powdered cream packets. Our car was being serviced and we were dropped off there by the car dealership. We were stuck. We ended up walking at least a mile each way to the Target. The only store around to buy some food. The microwave wobbled on its uneven base while cooking frozen dinners. No pots, pans or cookware. The bed had strap-on mattress pad that didn't hold in place. Sheets were not deep pocket so untucked. Over the bed was a "smoke alarm-sprinkler" that flashed green lights continuously. That became completely disturbing once the lights went out and throughout the night. I was awakened multiple times from the light flashes. The TV was the smallest flatscreen we've ever seen. It would normally be the size used in a bathroom or kitchen. All In all, it was clearly not worth the $140.00 charge for the night.

I appreciate you taking the time to write a review of your experience with us. We are disappointed to hear that we did not meet your expectations and apologize that our hotel's location was not convenient to you. Our grab-and-go breakfast is designed to get you out the door on time, for this reason our rooms have a fully equipped kitchen which lets you eat whenever and whatever you are in the mood for, saving you money in the bargain. Dishes, utensils, pots and pans are removed from our rooms after guests check-out so they can be thoroughly cleaned and sterilized. These items are available at the front desk upon request, I apologize if you were not informed this upon check-in. In response to your feedback, I will make sure our front desk staff is clearly communicating our hotel amenities and policies. Additionally, we will be conducting an investigation into the bed sheet/mattress situation, as well as the fire alarm's flashing lights. Again, we thank you for your comments, as they will help us provide better service to our guests. I do hope that you will return to our hotel, or any other Extended Stay Hotels location in the future.

Front of the building great location is ok I would have loved to have a view with the san Rafael bridge but instead we were placed in front of a highway noise wise you could hear the highway but it was 50/50 depends on the person... the beds made noise a lot everytime anyone moved it was pretty loud spring noises... annoying at night. the bathroom was decent could have had more products. there was a fridge a stove top and a microwave but no dishes to use and no one at the front ever mentioned they could loan you some... so kinda a waste of space... breakfast was not what your thinking no coffe was available muffins in a bag oatmeal in a bag no milk granola bars on the go or fruit if your lucky... definetly lost me on this just showed how cheap they were.

There are few options for state-rate hotels in Marin county.Because I had lived in an Extended Stay years back, I expected to have kitchen supplies in the kitchen, towels, coffee pot, flatware, dishes etc. Here ever item had to be requested at the desk. Reception and customer service were lacking. I was greeted by a person not looking at me but saying "I need your ID and credit card." I already had one in my hand but before I could get the second one out, he said again, "I need ID and credit card." It was difficult to not say "If you would look up at your customer, you would see that your second request was unnecessary and even rude."

Disappointing to pay over a hundred dollars a night and have no housekeeping service (true!), swimming pool and hot tub closed, no hair conditioner and just 1 tiny bottle of shampoo for 4 people (we were told to go to Target if we needed extras!)! This place is clean as a whistle and the rooms are nice but, there's absolutely no service! We'll stay at Embassy Suites next time.

Broken window latch, broken lamp, old creaky beds that made noise when you move. Old bed pads. Very difficult to work heater. Shower floor very slippery. No housekeeping service. No vending machines or ice machine. On the plus side the hotel has been upgraded. The hotel and the rooms look good. The problem is that it lacks the details that make the difference between being content and not being content. Unfortunately, the bad trumps the good.

TXR ! I was attending some shows at TXR and have found this to be a grate place to stay. The hotel is very close to the venue. I have stayed here before and will stay here again. Friendly staff, good clean room and even a view of the bay.

A kitchen comes with the room with microwave. HOWEVER, if you want a cup or teaspoon to have a cup of tea you have to go down to the front desk. It is called customizing your kitchen needs.

Our party of three spent two nights here exploring Marin County. Short drive to Muir Woods, Muir and Stinson Beaches and Golden Gate National Recreational Area. Nice walking paths with bay views for a stroll and exercise just a block away. The room was nice and clean, included a mini kitchen w/full size refrigerator, microwave. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Dog friendly too! I will definitely be back and recommend this location!

The place needs a good cleanning. The room was not well vacuumed and hair remained from the previous guest in the bathroom. The elevators were dirty as well. Dust balls in the corners and ad signs in the elevators with graffitti but no ads. The place needs a complete going over.

The hotel was clean, and the staff were all very nice. The exercise room was in disrepair, the door and bike were broken. The doorknob fell off while we were in there and there is no phone in the room. There was a business area but no ability to print during the whole length of our stay. Free breakfast is granola bars and instant oatmeal. There were no coffee shops or restaurants near the hotel at all. **This is obviously a drop in and sleep and that is it kind of hotel.

The room was spacious and comfortable. Like others have said, it was a little inconvenient to not have the dishes, dish washing equipment etc. in the room (like you would find in a Residence Inn for example), but they supplied what we requested very quickly. The grab and go breakfast was just that -- very skimpy, but the assumption was you are there for an 'extended stay' so supplying your own meals. The only major complaint I have is that the 3rd floor where we stayed had a very unusual odor. Our room smelled fine, but every time you got off the elevator, it was there and it was strong.

Good place to stay for exploring Marin County and San Francisco. Not the nicest hotel in the world, but it was a good base for 3-4 days and I would have no reservations going back. This was our best price point option in the area, but it is over priced, as is almost all of California. The kitchenette allowed us to use this an alternative to renting a house on VRBO.

We stayed for one night visiting San Francisco and Napa Valley. Beds are hard and A/C is loud. Swimming pool inside partly outside. It had a kitchen unit, but we just went out for diner. Not much in the area, just off the freeway. A great sushi bar around the corner! Also a target down the street with a Starbucks.. For a weekend stay in San Francisco area it was reasonable priced. For breakfast it's a grab and go: apples an muffin and coffee.

The Staff was very friendly, lobby friendly & clean. The room was clean, nothing fancy but functional. However, by far the WORSE THING WAS NO WATER PRESSURE IN THE SHOWER. Also bring your own shampo & conditioner -- as the product they provide is horrible. Coffee with the Continental breakfast is good!

It is a standard sized hotel which offers your need of having a comfortable place to stay. Basically, when you book in this hotel, housekeeping is only provided when you request for it. When you need fresh towels, you have to get it yourself from the front desk..so far over all stay was a breeze bec it provided what we really need for the whole stay including the chance of doing our laundry since they have that facility....;)
