"Cleanliness and comfort"
The beds were too soft. The site was very pretty, but there seemed to be black mold on the sill in our shower.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A stop for the night"
Needed an inexpensive- no frills - place to sleep for the night. Hotel is easy to find, staff was nice, room was comfortable, clean and quiet, plenty of parking & easy access to shopping and places to eat. (suggestions from staff were helpful and accurate).Common areas and laundry room looked clean (I did not use the laundry machines). Room rate includes […] a continental breakfast. (Cereal, packaged muffins, coffee & juice) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Best motel in Novato"
Comfortable, convenient and pleasant decor and surrounding area. Only issue was my internet access. Had trouble staying connected at one point. The rooms were beautifully decorated. I didn't use the pool so I can't rate it. It looked old so it wasn't very inviting. The breakfast was extremely basic; bagels, danish and cereal but they do have a very […] nice restaurant on the premises. Nothing much to walk to but plenty of restaurants and stores within 2 miles. They have a NO PET policy so that may discourage many people. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"worth the price"
Needed a quick stop over and had sticker shock at the other hotels in the area. It was reviewed saying the rooms had been redone and they had. The bed was comfortable, very nice bathroom, and well appointed room. The only draw back was you can park your car right outside your door so can be noisy we people leave. Well worth the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was the perfect spot for our quick trip to the SF area, easy on and off the freeway, quiet, clean, comfy. Pricier than our other stops but well worth it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just renovated and very clean"
The owners of this Inn just finished completely renovating this property. New furniture, granite and vessel sinks. My room was very clean. This is probably your best choice for a reasonable place to stay in Marin County.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Horrible staff , dirty room"
Don't waste your money I would rather sleep in my car than stay here againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Huge disappointment when we brought groceries to our kitchen equipped room to find out there were absolutely NO dishes, silverware, pots, pans, etc. It was a kitchen minus all equipment! We were able to return our groceries and made the best of the situation. Other than that, we were satisfied with the room. It was clean but a few switch plates were […] missing from the recent remodeling that had been done. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old Econo Lodge and condition shows it"
I had reserved the room online. The pics showed a nice hotel for a very reasonable price. I wouldn't swim in the pool. The room had wooden blinds that didn't cover the entire window and the room could not be made dark. The 'balcony' ( I rented a 'king suite') was smaller than the balcony on cruise ship basic room and overlooked a dilapidated roof of […] the units below. The restaurant A/C was broken and the doors were open when I arrived. The person who greeted me did not understand English. The old Econo Lodge sign is still up but the new proprietor has a vinyl sign with the new hotel name on it. If you are looking for a fairly well kept old Econo Lodge experience, then this is your place! The management was very courteous when I stated that the accomodations were not as stated online and they allowed me to check out and refunded my payment. So, that was nice!

"Nice but could use a facelift"
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, however there were some things that needed an update. There was a part of our bathroom wall where the wallpaper was peeling and there were no supplies provided for the kitchen. It would have been more convenient to not have to bring our camping equipment to get the most out of having a kitchen. That said, the room […] was clean, comfortable, and conveniently located to China Camp Park. We also enjoyed eating supper outside in the BBQ area and using the pool which was clean! Overall, we would come back for sure! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"not as told"
We were told the hotel had inside doors. Not that it was as pictured like an Eccon o lodge.When we got there just as pictured on internet. A motel not a hotel. When we arrived the clerk told me that was all they had. We talked to people accross the way and they said they had a room with inside doors and a garage for their car. Not sure why we were told […] differently and did not have the room we were told. Don't know about using hotels. Com again this was not Howup to the standards we expected.

There have been some efforts to update and upgrade this facility, but they are not there yet. The driveway is newly paved and the rooms updated. The bed was comfortable, the sink was pretty, but awkward. A small table would be nice, as well as a light in the deep walk-in closet. The pool was decent, but needs more daily attention. Hopefully, this is […] a work in progress as the new ownership is in transition and they will continue to make improvements for the guests. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pretty good hotel"
The room was clean and a good size.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Work in Progress"
The hotel claims to be renovated. It is a work in progress. The room was a good size and the carpet was new. It was close to the highway and good access to Napa and San Francisco. The drapes were painted and dirty. The bedspreads were old and the kitchen was well used. The wallpaper was coming off of the wall in both the bedroom and bathroom. It was […] not really clean. If they finished a few more updates it would be a great stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is NOT remodeled as advertised. Kitchen area contained appliances and furniture from the 1970s. Wallpaper was peeling everywhere. Towel bars were ripped off the walls, but the hardware was left hanging in place. Wooden door frame to bathroom was falling off in large chunks due to rot. Bathroom floor was DIRTY with hair in several places and […] urine stains around the toilet area. Towels were old and worn out. Bedspreads were from the 70s/80s. The only thing that looked newer was the desk chair. After checking out, the hotel decided to access my credit card information to charge me an additional fee. They did not notify me, nor did they have my permission to do so. When I called to discuss it with the hotel, they yelled at me. I had to cancel my credit card with my bank and am currently in dispute over the charge. This place is old and dirty, the employees are rude, and they rip you off!

"Step above a normal "motel.""
The room was renovated with new paint, carpeting, fixtures, and a comfortable bed. The sheets looked laundered, however, there was a lingering smell of slight smoke, like when sheets are laundered, but have been sitting in the linen closet for more than a week. Perhaps some cigarette smoke from exterior of linen closet found it's way in....I'm just […] highly sensitive to smells....so therefore I smelled it...but it was bearable because it was "slight." I wasn't aware that there was a full sized kitchen, so feel free to bring your cooking essentials as there is only a coffee maker available. The coffee maker's water reservoir was dirty so I used my own pot to boil water. Other than that, for the money, it was a good stay. Quiet location, I was near the back of the hotel. Also there is free continental breakfast. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not the best..."
The hotel seemed very old and dated. The guy at the front desk was not very helpful: our wifi wouldn't work and instead of acting concerned, he just told me to call a number that was supposed to be in the room and wasn't... The casing around the door jamb in the bathroom and bubbly and gross, and the water trickled out of the shower nozzle. I wouldn't […] bother staying here again...

"Marinwood Inn offers renovated rooms"
Although the room was nicely renovated, it was upstairs with no elevator--challenging to haul a week's worth of luggage up the faux marble stairs without damaging them. It is close to the freeway and has free WiFi. No pool, no gym. I felt it was poor value for the cost.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to SF"
Felt like a remodeled apartment complex, very spread-out. AC in room was not functioning properly, was serviced after the first night but still did not function properly the second night. Breakfast was weak, nothing fresh. Would not stay at this location again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good stay for the price"
The desk clerk was extremely helpful. I f you need to do laundry you need to bring your own soap and softener.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a very nice hotel. The room was large and comfortable. The pool needs to be cleaned a bit more often. The complimentary continental breakfast does not match the quality/price of this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Value, Convenient & Clean"
The hotel can be seen off Hwy 101 and is very easy to get to from exit. We had a very quiet room in the back of the reception area that was on the first floor which was very clean and was recently renovated. I called the hotel to confirm reservation after reading some bad reviews, the staff that answered was a bit short but helpful. We arrived late […] to the hotel and the person that helped us must have been the same as the one that answer the phone because he had same tone. I would stay there again given the value.

"Night Before NASCAR at Sonoma Raceway"
The stay was pleasant, meaning no bad surprises. Clean, quiet despite being close to freeway. Very close to the race track and about 5 minutes from some good breakfast places. The complimentary breakfast was so-so.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Alternative to staying in San Francisco"
Picked this hotel and figured that the distance to San Francisco would just be my "stupid tax" for waiting too long to book. I was pleasantly surprised. I was expecting an over priced hole in the wall. Marinwood is a refurbished Econo-Lodge so understand what you're getting into. If that's not upscale enough for you then pass on this spot. The room […] was a just notch below what I expect when I stay at a Holiday Inn express but a few notches above what I expect from Motel 6, Super 8 etc. They did a good job with the refurbish. The motel is right off the 101 so easy on and easy off if you're headed to San Fran. The ride doesn't feel as long as Google maps makes it seem. Also as close to the highway as it was, we weren't dealing with road noise from traffic. Personable staff and a cute four table breakfast nook. No USB ready power sources so bring your power adapter. Comfortable bed, very clean room. Standard bathroom with good water flow and no surprises with the warm water. Full size hotel fridge instead of a mini-fridge so if you're going to be there a week or so, you can use it to store more than six pack of beer. If you've got the time, stay here and save yourself a couple of Franklins. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just What We Needed"
The place was great. Very clean, comfy bed, new granite counter tops everywhere, granite shower, fridge and microwave. Perfect for what we needed it for. They had a small continental breakfast that was bagels, muffins, danish, juice and coffee. The manager was nice. An ideal stop over place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"My non-existent stay at the Marinwood...."
I booked this hotel through Expedia, or so I thought I did, and when I arrived there was no room for me...which wouldn't have been a problem hadn't every hotel within a 30 mile radius also been booked that night. I couldn't ever get to the bottom of who dropped the ball on this (the hotel or Expedia), but the irony is, I called the hotel after I booked […] it with Expedia to confirm things were a go, and they pulled up the name fine and confirmed the reservation (I did this because I had a few questions and also knew it would be full around that area that night since I previously tried to book with several other hotels in that area, and was met with no success. Bottom line: don't have too much confidence that you actually have a reservation here...even when you do call and they say they have your reservation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
1. Overpriced 2. Lousy breakfastGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked a room after reading the reviews stating that the rooms were completely renovated and all new amenities and furnishings. I found this only partially true. the furniture is new, but the kitchens and bath were still the 1950's vintage. Don't think that you will be doing any cooking in the kitchen, as there was only one small sauce pan, 2 plates, […] no glasses or bowls,1 spoon, 1 knife. Certainly would challenge any cook. The size of the suite was nice for an extended stay. There is a "No Smoking" policy, but the room we were given smelled like smoke and the previous thoughtless guest left there cigarette butts on the balcony. Kevin, the front desk manager, was kind enough to give us another suite immediately. The I never saw the pool as our suite was at the back of the property. The parking was easy access to the room and the complimentary breakfast was satisfactory. Although the lunch room and refrigerator were not clean. I think the housekeeping staff could use some supervision, only 3 towels in a room for 4 guests. The beds were comfortable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Marinwood Inn canceled my reservations"
Marinwood Inn canceled my reservations but didn't communicate this to Hotels.com. So when I tried to check in I was refused a room. And whole weekend was ruined.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Christmas visit to family members"
Remodeled room looked very nice. Walk-in closet was great! One problem was had to go out and buy a step-stool for wife to get into bed. It was about 36" from floor to bed. Don't need a 12" metal base plus the thick box springs and mattress. Desk height was still too high, even with office chair up as far as it would go.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Marin Economy and Comfort"
The exterior of this older motel has been pleasingly lifted with color and the room have been planned to provide comfort to all travelers, especially business people. The room included a large flat-screened TV, huge desk/work surface, refrigerator/microwave and an attractive stone tile bath/shower areas, large and comfortable beds, and excellent black-out […] curtains. A generous continental breakfast is available. The motel is still being renovated. Hopefully paint details will be fine-tuned: inside and out the colors are tasteful but slapped on and a paint spill is on the drive outside the room. The bathroom is not heated, and the floor is chilly. New air conditioner blows onto bed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"clean and roomy"
I don't normally make reviews. This was an exceptional stay for one night visit. we arrived late. The night clerk was very helpful. He gave me directions and instructions for plans that I had in San Francisco the next day. The room was clean and spacious. And we even had our own carport. it was set up like small condos.there was no one above us or below […] us to make noise. Very quiet, very relaxing last day in Cali before flying home to Texas. Definitely will stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Better than you might think"
EconoLodge was a bargain compared to the other hotels in the area, and the remodeled room I stayed in was really nicely appointed and attractive. The place looks average from the outside, but very comfortable and modern on the inside. These people are trying really hard, and I am happy to support that.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Quiet Motel close to amenities."
I stayed here for 8 nights. The staff was wonderful and non-intrusive. The motel was close to great coffee, good restaurants. It has the look of a Mexican or Mediterranean villa. Very lovely. Next time I won't bring my travel iron, or pillow. Not needed. Very clean, very comfortable. The only negative thing is that the kitchenette was not stocked with […] utensils of any sort. Nothing to cook with, nothing to eat from or with. It was an easy fix. I bought a sauce pan and paper plates, bowls, and utensils. It worked out fine. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Had a nice night, adequate breakfast."
Great value, being so close to the wine country. Room recently renovated. Public area still under renovation. Expected to have more improvements.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was being renivated and painting the entire exterior of place with windows boarded and taped up with paint fumes very strong. The bed had long hairs all over pillows and blankets. The bathtub had hairs in it and dirt marks in tub and looked like wasn't cleaned since last occupant. Toilet paper had red spots that went through entire roll. I […] felt very dirty. It was nice furniture and tv with many channels which is nice. Good coffee in temporary office. Wish I had known the hotel was being renovated BEFORE booking room.
