"RUN DOWN AND DIRTY"
The pictures are NOT representative of this property! It is minimal everything!! Toilet seat broken and sliding...bathroom floor scratched and in poor condition, as was the tub and shower. Pillows were bunches of lumps...like someone had stuffed foam pieces into a case! Lots of stairs and no help. Breakfast room was about 9x9 and not very well equipped...frozen round egg patties, pre-cooked bacon and sausage that had to be heated in microwave...I would definitely NOT RECOMMEND this property unless there was some serious renovation. TERRIBLE.

"for 1 person it was ok"
Room was ok. It needs a grab bar in the tub. For a 1 night stay it was fine. Room is to small for 2 people. It only had 1 desk chair to sit in and the bed was so high you need a ladder to get in. It was clean.

"Room so bad, we thought about drive home..."
- called to see if we could get early check-in, phone rang until you get msg that no one there to take call and system hung up - when my wife did get through, attendant was rude - room/carpet felt dirty, windows unclean, bugs in light fixture -room key sometimes worked, sometimes didn't -interesting piping in structure (upstairs bathroom seemed to have down-piping in wall behind our bed's headboard -manager his break a bit early in my opinion, as he started his cigarette while walking by the breakfast cafe (we could smell it in the breakfast area) It was so bad, it got comical. On our way out of the partying lot, my wife's parting moment was, "worst hotel ever!"

"Get a nicer front desk person....."
The staff at the front desk is VERY rude. I asked for an itemized receipt so that I could submit it for work and the front desk person was very bothered by that. After a few minutes of asking him for it and letting him know I wasn't going to leave until he gave it to me, he finally printed it out. It felt like checking in/out was an inconvenience for them. I will never stay at this motel again. Ever.

"Average."
Very close to the freeway. A bit stuffy and small. We had an upstairs room. We were able to park our car in a garage spot in the shade under the building. Room was clean. "Breakfast" was only white flour and sugar products and "cranberry drink" and o.j. No decaf coffee. It may have been so unappealing that most will have a real breakfast at their onsite Bistro for extra money. We only booked it because we wanted one night only and mort hotels in the region require two nights on weekends.

We came in last minute for a funeral. The hotel was conveniently located to San Francisco as well as easy access to wine country. We loved the attached kitchenette. Room was very spacious, beds were comfortable. Our only complaint was that the room air conditioner did not cool the room very well but with cool nights we just opened the windows.

"Very nice overall (except for the breakfast)"
Very nice hotel overall. Interesting set-up, with us having a little carport to pull into (which was nice) right below our room. The room was clean and had nice modern features, like a "bowl sink," which was neat. The only negative was the minuscule breakfast selection: a few cereals, some packaged muffins/breads, and a few beverages. Nothing really fresh.

"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.

"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.

Turns out the room was over 14 miles to get from Petluma to Novato! 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 ... Not friendly, could care less if we checked in, told home about how far we had to drive, no response!

"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.
