"Good place to stay outside SF"
Small hotel and looks quite modest from the front. Proprietor very nice. Room was fine. Not a luxury hotel by any means but fine place to stay overnight outside the city. A little challenging to find unless you have nav - border 101 but you have to take a side road a short distanceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our stay in Marin county"
We were very happy with the stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Nice Hotel"
Really beautiful hotel and very affordable too. Very clean, modern, and friendly staff. I was even surprised that my room had a small kitchen too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice for the price"
Easy freeway access to all of Marin County. Comfortable accommodations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great bed, do not eat here!"
The most comfortable bed! This hotel is managed well. I would stay here again but not my first choice. Needs a make-over. Do not eat in the restaurant. Food came out at different times, not toasted at all and was not good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
A decent hotel. Convenient locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value. Clean and comfortable."
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. The free breakfast needs some work, they could use some fruits and other forms of breakfast foods that are not just bread and pastries. I had to stay for another night before I left town and I stayed […] here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sonoma race stay"
Great place to stay for the track. Covered parking stall. Safe and secure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room we stayed in was very nice. We were able to park right out side the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay somewhere else!"
We have stayed there before and the room was nice and a good price so we decided to book again for 3 nights. When we checked in the room was completely different than our previous room. I went to the office and complained and the man at the desk said all of their rooms looked like the room I was in. I said I knew this was not true because I had stayed […] there before and he flat told me I was wrong. I then brought out my ipad and showed him the pictures on the their own Web site and said this was the room I had before and this was the room I was expecting and he just said he would give me my money back if I didn't want to stay there. I am a loyal customer and I travel all the time. Had this gentleman just been honest with me I would have understood but he couldn't even give me his time of day. I will never be back.

"A Wonderful Surprise"
Older property, well cared for. Updated rooms. The only thing we would want improved would be a step up on the quality of the towels. Otherwise, this is a very quaint and comfortable boutique hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Friendly. Decent for a 2 Star Hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Great hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed overnight for a business trip. Hotel was clean. A few blemishes here and there, but nothing to cause an eye sore. Staff was one gentleman, he was friendly and knowledgeably. Overall good experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel for extended stay and near wine country"
Room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Service personal was very attentive and efficient.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
very comfortable and best deal aroundGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room would have been fine except for the bedding and the noise from the neighbor. The units are above carports and the walls must be thin. I could actually hear my neighbor's snoring all night long. That was not as bad as the slamming door when the neighbor departed the room @ 5:30 AM. The lines were likely clean but they were of inferior quality. […] The bedspread was likely clean; but, it too was worn, old and looked a little dingy. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, spacious room, affordable"
I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights and really liked how spacious the room was. The only negative really was that the heater in my room didn't turn off when it reached the desired temperature, so I had to switch it on and off several times throughout the night (it was pretty chilly outside). Overall, I would stay there again in a heartbeat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice area 25 min. To S.F."
Clean comfortable room with covered parking. ..free breakfast and nice staff Microwave and refrigerator in room overall a very good experienceGenuine Expedia guest review
This is a smaller, older motel, but the rooms have been beautifully remodeled and were spotless. Very impressed! The only suggestion would be to include a little protein in the breakfast offered (maybe some yogurt).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Marinwood Inn Review"
This was a quaint little hotel very clean. I was concerned that it would be loud with it's close proximity to the fwy but it turned out to be fine.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed at Marinwood Inn and Suites for 5 nights when our house had been hit by a drunk driver. The staff is very kind. They upgraded my room and accommodated any requests. The facility is quirky, yet charming. The room I stayed in was very clean, comfortable and quiet. Overall it was a good experience during a challenging time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
That very good place, I'll be back again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"snobby lazy and rude"
I booked online and drove 2hours. When i got there to,check in,they told me they didnt accept debit cards. I had to find another hotel and hotels.com,still,charged me for the roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"WILL NEVER GO BACK HERE..."
ARRIVED 11 AM AND REQUESTED FOR EARLY CHECK IN. FRONT DESK GUY TOLD ME CHECK IN WILL BE BY 2PM EARLIEST. HE WAS NOT HELPFUL AND ACCOMODATING AT ALL. NO CUSTOMER SERVICE SKILL AT ALL. CHECKED AROUND AND I AM PRETTY CERTAIN THAT THERE ARE ROOMS AVAILABLE ALREADY (THERE WERE ONLY FEW CARS).Genuine Expedia guest review

Relatively less expense for the area with a large room. Everything worked, one little problem resolved very quickly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean refurbished hotel. Liked the carport parking"
The bed was great. Room modern and clean. Liked the carport parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Attention to detail in the room"
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...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A little run down, but so inexpensive for Marin"
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.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very pleasant n customer service is good n friendlyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Holiday Stay at Marinwood Inn & Suites"
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! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place, quiet, great price!"
Convenient to Family Christmas celebration! Front desk was very helpful and the hotel was very quiet, even though it was facing the freeway!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Deception. Nothing in kitchen!"
Total deception with kitchen... It's just a kitchen... Nothing in it! And management said to me that's all you get, no, utensils, dishes, glasses, pots pans... Nothing not even a sponge , soap or towels.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok for short stay"
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.

"DOG HAIR ON OUR PILLOWS AND SHEETS UPON CHECK IN!"
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! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Enjoyed our stay... Will return."
Breakfast was very poor. BYO. Comfortable/newly renovated and clean and in good neighborhood.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall it is OK, for the money, clean and the new renovations are good. They did try. A lot worse out there. The Restaurant on property is very nice. Only open for breakfast and lunch, good menu!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
