"A remodeled room doesn't mean it is worth the stay"
We drove up and the place was still under construction. The room was redone but the phrase that kept going through my mind was "like putting perfume on a pig." The overall feel of the place was just plain creepy. The location of the rooms and design made you feel you were staying in a brothel! And inside the newly finished room was the same old crappy […] bedding including thin sheets, ratty blanket and 70's spread with two large rips in it. There was a cloth shower curtain the just touched the top of the tub but no liner so the water went everywhere. There was no clock in the room and the space between the room door .and the top of the floor was approaching 2 inches. I probably wouldn't have minded as much if the room hadn't cost so much.

"Beautiful rooms for great rate!"
Staff was very helpful. Hotel is close to places to eat....very niceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
under remodel but room was new and neatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is the second time I stayed at this motel for a class I'm taking. Last time was a year ago, and the only reason I booked this motel was the unavailability of the motel where I normally stay... For some reason this weekend had everything booked and more expensive than normal... Anyway, they are in the process of remodeling. I stayed in a refurbished […] room and it was fine. Last time I stayed here everything was dingy and worn. Now the interior looks more like a high class hotel, even though it's still a lower rate motel. They had put a bathroom vanity out near the entrance, so all the towels were outside the bathroom, but it was nice and orderly. No towels in the bathroom except for the floor mat. No fridge. The manager was really pleasant and suggested that I park my full size pickup in a more easier to park spot than the designated parking spot. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I get Supply and Demand.... But really, you need to change the name. It is the Cheapest thing around.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was very close to higway and good restaurant. Very clean and brand new everything. Exceptional place if you need to spend night on your way somewhere.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Reasonably priced - near relatives"
It was a work in progress. Lots of maintenance going on in the lobby / check in area. Room was completed.Genuine Expedia guest review
WiFi was very poorGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Newly remodeled room."
This hotel is in the midst of being remodeled. Our room was very nice!! It had everything in it new. The outside of the hotel still needs work, as well as the breakfast area, but they are working on it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenience for Memorable NASCAR Weekend"
Better than expected! We rented a room with a king sized bed w/ kitchenette. The bathrooms have been updated & room was clean. I would stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
They are still have improvements in progress. the room I was in was very nice, very clean, quiet. I will hope to stay again next year.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value - improved since last visit"
I stayed here a couple of years ago and, while it was inexpensive and convenient, the rooms were old and there was a lot of renovation going on. But the staff was friendly and I wanted to see what it was like now. We were coming from a wedding and would arrive late and just needed a place to stay for the night before heading into San Francisco. I was […] very impressed with the upgrades they've done to the rooms. Much more modern feel and the bed and furnishings were very comfortable. Glad to see the improvements and the staff was just as friendly as before. Nice to see and I'll be happy to stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms are under construction and are very modern and clean. Hotel staff was very welcoming and helpful. The only down fall is the distance to restaurants. We ate at Hot Monk (about 15 minutes away)and is was amazing!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Had recently been renovated. Everything inside and out was brand new.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Still doing remodel; office is a mess. Some rooms are great, and some are poor - very uneven. Looks like there are three different stages of construction. Price was OK.Genuine Expedia guest review
pros: good location, nice restaurant nearby cons: *room appeared to have been renovated, however cheap materials used (uncomfortable mattress, cheap linen, flat pillows, non-absorbant towels) *toilet paper in bowl upon check-in *bathroom smelled of stale urine which permeated the room (questionable cleaning practices) *door to room was not flush at […] the top and you could see light streaming through *room/accomodations doesn't warrant price of $100+, more in line with $50-70 budget hotels *would recommend paying $25-50 more for reasonable room in 3-5 star hotel in this area (marin county, san francisco) note: it's okay to stay for one or two days if you have no choice, but don't make decision based solely on economics (in my opinion) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great place !"
Major improvements ! Lovely place & bed & bedings so nice, clean & nice tv. Hope for more deals here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This motel had only a 2.5 star rating. I was a little skeptical of booking there because of this. However, they have put a lot of blood, sweat and $$$$$ into improving this and I would now give it a 3.5. Worth the stay. We decided to stay another night and they gave us the same rate although it was the weekend. Thank you Econo Lodge....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I will definitely return !!!"
I love this place, quiet neighborhood and clean. I ordered "awesome" corn beef and hash at the cafe next door too. Complimentary breakfast bar is fair.Genuine Expedia guest review
Had a great bed,room clean,quiet safe neighborhood,great rate,would rather stay here than anywhere in San Francisco!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Brand new everything!"
Wow! Everything is brand new at this hotel. Large flat screen TV, new beds, fancy sink, counter tops, and dressers, all new. There's a refrigerator and microwave too. I can't really express how shocked I was at how amazingly awesome this hotel was. I was expecting the quality of a Motel 6 and it felt like I was staying at a Hyatt. I had to take pictures […] just to show my wife how impressive this room was. I'd stay here again anytime. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great little inexpensive spot for Marin. Remodeling going on but the remodeled rooms are great. Nice flat screen tv. Continental breakfast was sparse but still for the money just fine.Genuine Expedia guest review
Quiet and clean. Pleasant stay! When the construction gets done, this will be more pleasantly "eye" appealing, but as far as my stay went, I have no complaints.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap but ok"
Everything was fine except the Front Desk never answered the phone when I called to complain that I had no hot water. I won't be going back but it was reasonable frmo a cleanliness and cost standpoint.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place to stay for the price you pay."
Hotel is in good location with good service, comfort room, newly renovated bathroom. Cafe was closed at the time and breakfast was very limited.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very quiet neighborhood"
It was very nice. Management was kind and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Will not stay here again. I took my bags with me every day - It was just that bad. The property had cabinets and other maintenance items stacked everywhere. No sense of pride by hotel management/ownership. My wife would NEVER had stayed here had she been with me on this trip.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was cheap"
Hotel was what you'd expect for the price. Good location, close to 101 and fast food. We'd stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Was a budget hotel, not very impressive. The tv would turn on in the middle of the night, and the towels looked dirty. The soap and shampoo provided was not the best quality.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect and restful getaway"
Our stay at Econo Lodge and Suites was wonderfully restful. Our room was comfortable and quiet. I like the rooms because they are so spacious. It was also very helpful that our room had a kitchen, that way we did not have to run out for every meal or snack. We will gladly return!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"THE WORST HOTEL EVER!!!!"
When I booked the hotel online the photos looked good, when I pulled into the parking lot and walked up to door lobby door it was locked at 9:00pm, I knocked on the door and a few minutes later someone finally came to let me in, after I got my key to the room and parked my car the room was on the 2nd foor above some garages that were open and full of […] garbage, the stairs hallway up to my hotel room was creapy and smelled really bad and run down, when I got into the room it looked like something out of a movie, the carpets were stained everywere, the walls were stained, it had a regular old fashioned t.v. it smelled like mildew, the shower kept going from really hot to really cold, this hotel was the worst place I have ever been to, if I had my wife and kids with me at that time I would have gotten my money back but since it was just me and it was late I just delt with it, I had to sleep with no pillows because they were stained, I took the bedding apart to make sure no bugs, then slept with the sheet only because the blankets didn't look like they were washed, TO EVERYONE WHO READS THIS.... DO NOT (I REPEAT) DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not a good choice"
The place was so bad the reservation wasn't even used (but charged). Rude, dirty, you name it - Novato is a lovely area - don't shadow your visit with this place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't waste your time or money."
I was looking for a decent priced place to stay with a hotel, so I chose Econo Lodge. This was a huge mistake on my part. The Pool was closed, my window was broken and would not open, freezer was frozen over, the shower had leftover stuff from previous person, people were loud all night long, the shower was dripping and big puddles on the bathroom floor, […] dirty/stained/holey sheets and comforter, and missing slats on the window to where people could see into my room. There was nothing nice about this place. I definitely would not stay there again or recommend this place. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"You get what you pay for"
Good location, but major-league shabby. Badly, badly in need of reno. Feels like a converted welfare motel. Woke up to find a homeless guy sleeping outside my door. Housekeeping folks do their best to keep things clean, but not much to work with. Yellowed walls, shabby furniture. HOWEVER, great price, if not a great value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is all no smoking but my room smelled like tobacco smoke heater was broken and there was an extension cord running across ceiling to the floor plugged in to a small heater that wasn't strong enough to heat the whole room carpets and walls were stained and room was not very clean continental breakfast did not start until 8:00 am first hotel I ever […] stayed in that it didn't Start at 6:00 I desk clerk was dirty and unkeeped I never want to stay there again it was a very poor experience i tried to find another hotel but everything was booked so I had no choice but to stay there Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"EconoLodge in Novato worth what you pay for"
The EconoLodge in Novato was one of the cheapest hotels on the list of hotels.com hotels for our recent weekend stay. It's old, and furniture is worn but serviceable. Nevertheless, the hotel had some nice features (like strong wi-fi, adequate lamps and enough plugs, Dish TV), and we would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A nice surprise during a cheap stay."
I was impressed by the price if the hotel room and the condition of our room and the hotel in general once we arrived. The hotel is located right off the freeway, but our room was in the farthest of the three buildings and we could not hear the traffic whatsoever. We were placed in a room with a kitchenette without asking or an extra charge. We arrived […] at the hotel around 10pm and checking in late was no problem at all. The hotel was located close to a grocery store, restraunts and the exit onto the freeway which got us to where we were going. There were only 2 small things I had problems with during our stay, the wi-fi router was located in the office and our room was one of the farthest from the office so we had a weak signal. Also one of the windows in our room had sheer curtains which let in a lot of light in the morning, but I'm a heavy sleeper so I had no problem sleeping in. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We have stayed here several times in the past year. It is a great value. Rooms are large, comfortable and clean. Great (and inexpensive) resturant next door. We have recommended it to others.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Don't Stay Here"
The rooms are dirty and old. They are renovating it, so it might get better, however when I stayed they had the heat turned off and provided all the rooms with a small space heater. I ran it all day and night, but the room never got warm enough. I was supposed to stay two nights, but left after the first night. They were supposed to refund my money […] for the second night. The manager agreed to it, but I never got my money back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Avoid this place!"
Indian man who works the desk was rude/uncaring/unapologetic when my smoking preference was not honored. (Hotels.com person did NOT tell me this could happen, else I'd not have made the reservation.) I later found out that the man working the desk had lied to me about what was truly available! Same man was rude and unfriendly the next day, too (as if […] I were bugging him by being there or asking a question). Made me feel very unwelcome and not want to go by the office for any reason. Room carpet was so stained and dirty I didn't want to walk on the floor. Road noise all night didn't bother me, but it might you. Shades were so flimsy and poor that there was a cold draft by the window and the all-night lights outside could not be fully blocked (could not make the room completely dark even with all lights off). On the positive side, the internet worked well, the maid service was superb, and the Hotels.com rate was the lowest I found after much shopping. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a charming place to stay. The owner is very kind and accommodating. I would recommend it to anyone who is wondering about where to stay in Novato.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Econo Lodge - Napa"
Fits the need, not great, but definitely not bad.Genuine Expedia guest review
Pleasantly surprised out how comfy it wasGenuine Expedia guest review
"Just fine for the dime"
I needed to be away just for a night and found this one online as one of the least expensive places for lodging in the area. It was conveniently close to the highway and............it was very close to the highway:(. Sound of cars was very clear. I drowned it out with the television. Though not listed, I was surprised to find a microwave and refrigerator […] in my one queen bed room. While the bed was comfortable, the carpet could have used replacing and the shower door needed some work. It could use some "cozying" overall. It apeared as if the entire place is under construction and being re-vamped. GThey are really doing a lot of work (though not evident via sound). There is a restaurant on site - which I didn't use because I had my own food. The man at the counter - who appeared to be the manager - was very friendly and helpful. For a place to lay your head, without concern for anything fancy...if the price is important to you and a definite factor - in Marin, for the price and the good service - it works. I will return when/if necessary in the future. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Sleep in your car before this place"
No heat, there was a space heater plugged into a series of extension cords nailed to the wall. When we asked for another room with real heat we were told there were no other rooms although the place looked empty. We left and went to another hotel. Expedia took care of the refund promptly.Genuine Expedia guest review
I might go again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The people were very nice. Too bad it's so close to freeway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Cheap but still overpriced"
We chose this hotel because it was cheap, but I think it was definitely overpriced!! This hotel was just old and dirty, the parking spots were taken up by furniture from the hotel rooms - they are clearly doing some rehab work. The shower was awful, bed uncomfortable, room dirty. Would definitely find something else, I'm not picky for one night in a […] hotel, but won't be here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
