I reserved a room that came with a garage for two nights. On the second day someone took my garage. When I went to the desk, the man acted like he didn't speak English after he was exposed he told me to park out in front of the hotel. It was Christmas and I had to unload the car of gifts. The carpet was dirty and worn out. The maid went in the room next to me at 8;30 in the morning on Christmas day and ran the vac. Woke me up when I needed to sleep. I will not be staying there again.

I've only stayed at two hotels in the Novato area. Marinwood Inn and Suites was by far the better value. I was particularly impressed by the appointments in the room: Crown molding, granite tile, etc. I'll be back for sure...

I felt like I was in a backpacker hotel from my glory days as a student in India: same charming landscaping, bare-bones breakfast, superb location, and super flexible and friendly staff. Now I'm grown up with two kids and a wife, but we all enjoyed our spacious room and the many different paths you could take to the complimentary breakfast room.

We traveled to visit family for Christmas, normally we stay at their home but it was too full. So we booked the Marinwood Inn and were pleasantly surprised. The remodeled rooms were compact, yet comfortable. We did ask for more pillows and were graciously accommodated. Upon arrival we had two separate bookings from Hotels.com; 2 different room categories and the Manager kindly offered us the King for both nights and we did not have to move rooms. I did notice a hand written note at the check-in desk stating No Pets; so this could be from previous poor reviews. We did not see any evidence of pet hairs. The breakfast is not what you get at other chains, like BW, HI, LQ and more; but for the price difference you can buy a good breakfast downtown. Lots of great walking neighborhoods right from the hotel and we did not hear the highway during the entire stay. We will for sure stay again...thanks!

Nice quiet unit, no frills. Beds are comfortable. Full kitchen, but nothing to cook with (no pots or pans), eat on (no plates, bowls nor cutlery) and no cups or glasses to drink with. Weird. Only 1 person at front desk to help with anything, he was quite friendly. Good TV and internet. Breakfast is motel basic. Nothing else in the neighborhood. It was OK for a day or 2.

Maybe we should have read he reviews prior to booking the stay at Marinwood Inn & Suites. Upon checking in our bed had DOG HAIR ALL OVER THE SHEETS AND PILLOWS! AND IT DID NOT LOOK LIKE THE SHEETS HAD BEEN WASHED AT ALL. ALL LINEN WAS DINGY DINGY DINGY! When we mentioned this to the staff, they were upset we complained. We had to ask for new bedding, and we really don't know if we got any. Maybe they just shook the sheets cause the "new" bedding looked just as DINGY. Sorry, we will never stay here again and feel we need to WARN ANYBODY AND EVERYBODY that is considering this place. DIRTY!

I can't seem to learn from my mistakes. I've stayed at this hotel three times for business recently because it's the only affordable accommodations in a wealthy neighborhood. The microwave was encrusted with food in one room, then the bathroom was filthy in the second room, with black dirt in the bathtub and the shower curtain smelled heavily of urine. It seemed that this was probably a hangout for the employees. Too tired to complain to the front desk, so it's my own fault, I guess...

I was travelling with my elderly Mother from S.F. To Palm Springs. Having travelled a bit, I am fussy about hotels and wanted it to be as comfortable as possible for my 84 year old Mother. We are also Vegans so the kitchen was a must have. We stayed 2 nights & were very warm & comfortable in a huge room. The Staff was extremely accommodating.

The hotel itself and the room was nice and clean. I had called the hotel and explained I was coming directly from surgery and was on crutches. They booked me on the second floor: second day, no room service, had to call to get towels, coffee, etc. Management not on top of things. Room keys kept expiring. The room I booked on line showed a suite with kitchen, this room only had a hotel microwave and frig. Management needs to improve but rooms are nice.

We had a late flight in to SFO on a trip up to Wine Country. This hotel was very reasonable and perfectly nice for our overnight. Recently renovated (some features oddly too fancy for the room, but not complaining), quiet, convenient to 101, nice dedicated parking. Coffeemaker, fridge and microwave, very basic breakfast, WIFI, all good. Clean and comfortable all around.

We had seen photos of the hotel and didn't expect it to be a duplicate of a Motel 6. It was supposed to have been renovated. From what??? From the moment we stepped into the room, it smelled - not of smoke but a horrible odor. The bathroom towels were thin and small and our soap was a one inch square. The sink was nice but that was about it. The walls are paper thin. You could hear everything the people in the next room were saying (and doing). Complimentary breakfast was stale cereal flakes, toast, bagels, juice and coffee- meager to say the least. We were very disappointed and will not stay here again.

We had a pleasant stay. The room was clean, and the bed was comfortable and the room had a large flat screen TV which was also nice. The only issue would be the noise from the highway made us close the window, for other it may seem like "white noise". The price for the room was good too. It fit our needs and I would defiantly stay there again.

The staff were not terribly friendly or accomidationg. The place seemed more like a motel than what it appreared in the pictures. The room itself was nice clean and comfortable. The bathroom situation was awkward with the bathroom sink outside the bathroom. The sink was off center too and made it difficult to wash hands...but the interior was really nice. I wasn't looking for anything amazing so if you just need a decent, clean, updated place to sleep its good for a night or two.

The location and price are hard to beat. Rooms are a bit dated but I lived the bed!

It was very apparent that this hotel maintained their property very well. Everything was clean and nicely decorated. The big round sink in the bathroom was very beautiful. The room was small but comfortable. It was quiet and private as our room was at the top of a flight of stairs. The bed was comfortable and it was decorated nicely. However the WiFi was slow and our T-MOBILE phone service did not work at all there. Overall though, aside from the severe phone problems, we had a good stay.
