"a hidden gem found late at night"
we were on the road over july 4th and ended up needing a room that was not part of the plan. We found this place on line, arrived at midnight, the night manager waited for us. we ended up with the last room there. A bit quaint, in that the rooms are on the second floor with a carport for your car at ground level. The room was spacious, very clean, with a nice large bed and t.v. the bath sink was right in the front door, but htat actually worked for us. the shower was hot, and the walk in closet was a treat. The table , refrigerator, dresser were nice additions. Breakfast was a collection of cold cereals, packaged pastries, bread products. no hot, no protien.

"Unhappy couple...."
We stayed 2 nights which was okay. The floor by the sink and into the bathroom was dirty like it wasn't cleaned from the previous guest. There was layers of dust on the hair dryer and there was tape around the sprinkler in the bathroom, probably after painting. The smoke alarm wan't even attached in the bedroom area on the very tall ceiling. The kitchen counter had sticky drips of something on them and dried water marks where the ice bucket had been used by the previous guest as well. When we left the room Saturday morning we left the air conditioner on. When we came back that evening the maid had turned off the air conditioner and it was very very hot in the room.

For the price I paid on hotels.com $99 it was perfect! It's like an extended stay the maids don't clean your room daily. The towels are cheap so you feel the wear and tear when drying off. No frills Hotel but I can sAy I felt safe.

"Not bad but not good"
The room smelled "moist" which indicates to me that there is probably a water leak and/or improper ventilation for the bathroom. The air conditioner was horrible. It would blow cold air for maybe 5 minutes. It was colder outside than inside. I was disappointed at the lack of space. It was a small room with a really large bad. I would have preferred the walking room around the bed as opposed to the extra large tall bed that was overwhelming in the teeny room.

"Good value for Marin County"
This property doesn't offer some of the services you see from a major chain (such as front office being open 24 hours or shuttle service), but it is a good value for Marin County. Right off Highway 101, it's very close to grocery stores and restaurants. Microwave and small refrigerator were in the room. If you decide you don't want to drive to San Francisco, a Golden Gate Transit stop is nearby with free parking. The room was very comfortable and quiet. Could not hear the highway traffic. Would recommend to others.

Forget About The Free breakfast, Not Much To Choose From And The RooM It Was Served In Wasn't Very Inviting. Overall Was A Good Place To Sleep Easy Access Right Off The freeway.

"Marinwood stay"
Large room, large bathroom. Loved having the kitchen with full size fridge. If I was fixing my meals there, it would have been difficult. No pots, pans, dishwashing soap or paper towels. Missing blackout curtains, too much light in the room through the blinds. So definitely need blackout curtains to stay next time. The people were very loud above us. Sounded like people running across the floor.

The room had a horrible Smell,Sheets were thin you could see thru them all wrinkly, the towels were not much better, the closet no light, rug could have been cleaned. The person checked us in ...

"Roomy hotel in pretty setting"
Stayed in a room with a kitchen. And yes, it has cooking facilities. We are talking thanksgiving dinner. Stand alone large refrigerator and stove. One major drawback, the bed was too hard, but we are seniors who prefer a softer mattress. Breakfast was ample but starchy and sugary, but for what we saved on the room we could go to burger king down the road. We were not crazy about the brand of coffee in the room and were offered only one small pot. Plan on making a coffee run immediately.

"Pleasant appearance but noisy."
We were rather disappointed in this hotel. The room was big and comfy, but the walls are extremely thin. We could clearly hear conversations in the rooms on either side of ours. There was also a ton of noise from people running up and down the tiled stairs, and a domestic dispute in the parking lot. Next time we'll try somewhere else for the price.

"For the price, location, and comfort, I recommend!"
I know that Marinwood Inn & Suites may not get the best reviews but for the price, the location, the comfort, and the overall stay, I would definitely give it a 4 out of 5 stars. I wanted to stay in Novato after celebrating a friend's birthday and not wanting to drive home to San Jose. The check-in was easy and seamless. The room was overall comfortable aside from the wear and tear overtime. I was happy to get a flat screen television and the DISH network. The breakfast was a standard of many items inside packages (bagels, danishes, toast) along with cereal, coffee, tea, etc. I wouldn't mind returning to the place at all. I wonder how the pool was like.

"Persistence"
Our reservations were not in through expedia. Manager acted as though he wasn't going to give us a room because reservations were not there. We finally asked if they were full and he said no. So I said "So what's the problem then?" I wanted to see the room before we rented it and the Manager kind of balked, but finally gave in. It all worked out in the end, due to our persistence. Manager not overly friendly. I would probably not stay there again as there are other hotels in the area that are comparable or even nicer.

"A decent place to spend a night or more."
Nicely remodeled rooms and bathrooms. The rooms have their own door to the outside, with your car parked right in front of your door, so it had a sort of small personal house feel, to it. Water pressure was OK but probably not as strong because it had a giant circular shower head to spread out the water. Nice gentleman that checked me in and out. It's on a frontage road off the highway so easy access and not far from gas, food and some entertainment.

"Good nights sleep - inside of room is new"
Great night's sleep. Hotel is older, but "not really". My room was brand new it seemed - new carpet, tile floor, sink, tub/shower/faucet, counters, furniture, bed, linens, pillows, lighting, hair dryer, toilet, alarm clock, big flat screen, microwave, refer and heating/cooling. I didn't hear any noise from other rooms and no street noise. If I had to pick one thing that I didn't like, it would only be that the bath towel was cheap , like very thin and small....this is where this hotel owner needs to re-think what they are providing their guests to use. There were two wash clothes and one hand towel...both of these okay...it was just the bath towel that was beyond terrible.

"Value in Novato"
For the price, I believe we got excellent valuse for the money spent. The suite was clean, comfortable and spacious and the kitchen had all the basics needed. THe manager was also friendly and helpful and gave us ideas and information about where to go and what to see. The neighboring area is safe and clean also. The continental breakfast was underwhelming and I would reccommend using your little kitchen or a local restaurant.

"Good Value!"
This hotel is priced right for it's location and condition. The person at the front desk was very nice and cordial and check-in was fast and easy. The room was nice considering the age of the place. Because it is next to the Hwy, I expected some noise but it was fine. Cars parked right out front mean you can hear car doors and lock beeps, but that too was ok with me. The walls are a little thin, as I could hear the guy next door snoring, but I'm a light sleeper. If there had been loud people next door or children, it would have been a problem though I think. All in all I found the hotel nicely updated, the bed very comfortable and for once, even the small fridge did not make on and off noise to wake me up! I liked the large bathroom and long dresser/desk area to put all my stuff on. I'd definitely recommend this hotel for a convenient one or two night's stay.

I was in the area for business. I stayed here for two nights at the start of my trip. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff are friendly and helpful.

"Unable to Stay"
Unfortunately due to serious illness we had to cancel our trip and were unable to stay at the hotel. While we were not able to stay at the hotel we were able to tour the property on an earlier visit. That is how we formulated our rating on the facility itself. Most importantly we can say that the staff were terrific. When we phoned to cancel were were treated very professionally and the manager graciously allowed us to cancel without penalty. How wonderful it was that in a very emotional time we were treated with such kindness. Will definitely plan to stay at the Marinwood Inn & Suites when we next visit Novato.
