The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The location is great if you like being in a small town environment with everything within walking distance. Worked well for me since I was visiting someone in town. Room was comfortable, nothing spectacular, but clean and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Comfortable and convenient. Owners were a little weird, but the place is clean. A little too many carbs for the daily breakfast. How about some protein?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"hard to find"
inn hard to find. inn located next to and behind cinima. small sign located in tavern parking lot, off street, pointing to inn. tavern in front of inn. ice machine located in hotel office and office closes at 11:00 p.m. Clerk stingy with ice. no chek in after 11:OO p.m. room was comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The inn was quirky and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay. It is in the heart of enjoyable shopping and entertainment. It is not a chain, and the owner was very pleasant.Genuine Expedia guest review
wifi did not work in room; had to sit by office.Parking frequently used by patrons of the live entertainment restaurant next door so we had to find neighborhood parking each evening.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hoetl staff was very helpful. Room was clean and tidy. Nicely located at the centre of town.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Needs a bit of an update..."
...I had booked this room for my parents as I live in San Anselmo, and the location is close. I love Fairfax, and the inn was nicely nestled against the hill. The room was spacious with high ceilings and neat and clean. The inn could use a bit of a refresh though, with an old TV that was out of focus, old linens, and a Goodwill futon in the space. But, […] my parents could not speak highly enough about the staff, and you can't beat the location. For a place to sleep, it fit the bill. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Simple and nice."
The Fairfax Inn is not really a bed and breakfast in the traditional sense, and certainly is not a luxury hotel.... but none the less, it does the trick. Fairfax is a great little town, and the Fairfax Inn is right in the middle of that "scene". Just walk around the corner to great food, great coffee and great music. Due to the proxcimity of the nightlife, […] the noise level can be a bit much for quiet sleeping. Quaint and cool. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

A comfortable place to spend the night. Customer service is virtually non-existent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for deaf people"
Had a room booked & got bumped out of the room. We accepted another larger room. Well the larger room was excruciatingly noisy as it is in between 2 bars with live music til 2 am.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice staff. Loud surroundings being downtown. Parking was tightGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel but noisy."
This hotel is right behind two nightclubs, so it is very, very loud at night. The location is great in downtown Fairfax, but the noise level is significantly high at night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Mediocre motel with a good location."
Pros: The main benefit of this motel is it's location, it's literally right in the middle of Fairfax. Restaurants, bars, and funky shops are right outside your door. The rooms are clean but basic. Cons: The motel is right next to a bar which can get very loud at night. Live bands, and people screaming. People from the bars are also frequently walking […] behind and through the motel grounds. This is not a bed and breakfast. The "breakfast" is a very basic Continental breakfast with bagels (no cream cheese) muffins and some breads/cereals. Our 2 queen bed room had limited bureau space and no table/desk, the hair dryer was also broken. The "free WiFi" was very spotty. It frequently did not work and when it did the signal was very weak.

Room was quiet and restful in spite of hotel's location adjacent to and near some very active bars and night time entertainment venues. Amenitites in room were nice, and value was good. I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The only hotel in Fairfax, CA..."
... but a very nice one! Located in the wonderful downtown, just off the main street and steps from wonderful restaurants and cute shops. The rooms were lovely, nicely decorated, gas fireplace, view into the tops of oak trees. Breakfast was basic continental.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed on a Sunday night and were quite surprised how noisy it was. A band was apparently playing nearby, and it was till noisy as late as 11 p.m.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Only place to stay in Fairfax, and actually quite good"
02/15/14 JAXers Jacksonville, FL
The Fairfax Inn is located in "downtown" Fairfax, adjacent to but well back from the movie theater and a bar. Flight cancellations from winter weather conditions on the East Coast put me at the Inn for 5 days instead of 2 as planned, so I got a pretty good feel for the place. My room (#5), was located on the back side of the property (as are #3-12 ... I suspect #3,4,5,6,7 are least affected by whatever might be taking place at the bar scene - over 5 days I heard none of the noise others have complained about). I found the room to be very comfortable, helped by having a gas log fire place to complement the HVAC unit. Vaulted ceilings gave the room a spacious feel, and it was already larger than what is typical for most hotels. The bed was comfortable and I rested well each night. The bathroom was modern and well-appointed with a Jacuzzi tub (which I didn't use). Towels and amenities were of good quality. Overall, I found the experience better than for the Sheraton over in San Rafael, the only other place I've tried in this area. The room was always back in perfect order when I returned each evening. Inn construction is concrete pillar and post, with all of the rooms above the parking garage, each opening onto an exterior walkway accessed via rather narrow and unattractive steel/concrete stairways. This is not a B&B, but does include a minimal continental breakfast, consisting of a selection of various kinds of breads, sweet rolls, coffee, tea, juice, and cereal, squeezed into a corner of an already very small office space, but very homey and on par with what I make do with at home. Internet service worked fine for me, not great, but fast enough - my test is being able to comfortably read the on-line newspaper from back home, which is imaged on the web, and it was OK for that. I should note that cell phone service in the Fairfax area is spotty at best, so don't be surprised if your carrier doesn't have service there. Everything in Fairfax is within easy walking distance from the Inn. I particularly enjoyed Perry's Deli for sandwiches and the Iron Springs Pub for dinner, neither of which will break the bank and both of which have good food and spirits. I have a return visit already planned and recommend the Inn for anyone looking for accommodations in this neck of the woods. It's a downtown property with some years on it (which is the case for all of downtown Fairfax), but is well maintained, especially the room interiors. Just don't expect everything to match up to a newer property. I found the woman who operates the place to be quite pleasant, albeit a bit shy, probably because she knows her English is a bit hard for many to understand (she's from India). Although you can book on-line through Expedia, reservations are managed on paper, which means it might be best to call them in (which also allows you to request a particular room).

I stayed at this property while visiting family in Marin County. It was just what I wanted...clean, comfortable and within walking distance to family, restaurants and shopping. I will stay here again.

My family rented six rooms for a several night stay for a reunion. We chose this hotel due to proximity to a family member's house. It is not a bed and breakfast. More like an abbreviated low cost motel with a few ( and same each day) breakfast choices... Dry cereal and left over pastries. The hot water and tea bags were good. But we went to The Roastery down the street for coffee and croissants. Rooms were spacious and beds were comfortable. But there are only two small lumpy pillows per bed. We had to ask for more in unit 5. The placement of the bed was the cause for bruising. The oversized entertainment center ( in unit 5) is only about 15 inches from the square cornered footboard. (Similar in other units. The doors in the center in one unit did not push in when open, making the passageway even smaller). Two persons could not pass at the same time. Additionally, you were bound to cut the corner too sharply when getting up during the night thereby causing a significant bruise. Been there/done that. No hotel should have square corners on a footboard. The problem could be minimized by either replacing the center with a much smaller unit, placing the small television on a table, or switching the table and center in a different area of the room. The ceiling fan is great.... If you desire only one speed, which is hurricane force. One room fan didn't work at all, so management had to bring in a floor fan. The Manager was very accommodating and friendly in all aspects, but she acknowledged she was aware of the intermittent fan problem, but apparently hasn't had it fixed. Wall switches for the fans did not work properly in all rooms. A small rubber stopper on the shower head in a few rooms popped out at first causing water to spray all over their bathroom. Unit 6 has a transom window that allows in the sun making the room especially hot. Room hair dryers must be originals and only work well on bald heads. One room didn't bring a dryer because she was told there were dryers provided - but they barely blow warm air. Management provided her with a portable unit at her request.. At least one room's fireplace did not work. The hotel is in a great location if you don't want to drive to restaurants, etc. But it could have been noisier if the attached but unrelated bar had not been under construction. Unit 5 was quiet even with the window open. Hotel structure is in need of maintenance and updating. Because of location, the price is probably "reasonable" for the area, which is something to consider. But we wouldn't stay here again unless there were improvements.
"Needs an update badly...."

Stayed at the Fairfax Inn in Fairfax, CA, March 14 &15. Had stayed about 4 years ago, and now, it's somewhat run-down. Dirty bedspreads, terrible lumpy pillows. The weird vaulted ceiling has a top window in the units with no shade on it, so be prepared for early morning light. I was in room 5 and it wasn't that noisy from the two raunchy bars that are on the street in front of the hotel. I didn't bother with the breakfast because I figured it was cold cereal and bad coffee. Went to the wonderful Roastery down the block. They need to paint and recarpet these rooms. I won't be back.
"2 nights at the Inn"
09/24/12 bob3160 Los Lunas, New Mexico
To start with, it's not a "bed and breakfast" any more. The continental breakfast also leaves a lot to be desired. The room was nice even if the TV was old. If you enjoy a jacuzzi, this might be a place to check out. The price was very reasonable for the location. The location makes it easy to miss and all the rooms appear to be on the second floor.
"Wonderful place at a good value"
Very helpful staff, well appointed rooms with jacuzzis, right in the heart of Fairfax's lively (and charming) downtown. We were surprised to get such a nice place for $120. Really enjoyed it. I agree that the breakfast was a little light, but that's hardly a turn off in my book.
"Mediocre. Overpriced. Not a traditional B&B"
04/15/11 toomuch2C11 Redondo Beach, California
We stayed in the king bed suite, the highest priced room @$160. a night. The room was nice. We had the following issues: the futon close to the tv was worn out and uncomfortable to sit/lie on, one of the reading lights in the headboard wasn't working, the towels were like loofahs, ice machine is in office, continental breakfast is by no means deluxe and it was noisy on weekend nights since there is a bar right next door. The pluses were the beautiful mountain view and the hotel's location.
"Who really visits Fairfax?"
09/30/10 cambio14 Santa Fe, New Mexico
The inn is down a long driveway off the street, we missed it at first, down the long driveway behind a large music club in town. Rooms are upstairs, high cathedral ceilings, ceiling fan and A/C / fan for white noise. Most importantly we finally saw the pocket door which created an airblock in the entry to keep out the nightclub noise at night. That noise was never a problem and they had a big show the first night ! Nice size bathroom with a jacuzzi tub, i got bathsalt at the health food store and jumped in. When we checked in the couple next to us were having a fight, just a lot of yelling. gave it a little while to blow over, but with the yelling from the club patio at 5 pm also going on , we thought "things can only get worse" . Went down and asked to be moved. The (owners? ) deskclerk response " I just checked them in , they are a nice couple" and grudgingly showing us another room. Sure they may be nice, but they are pissed of at each other right now and with a possible alcohol fueled evening i don't want to be the neighbor! Second room had more wear and tear on it, little things broken , some dirt on walls. We didn't feel welcome by the clerks when we first came in and after this exchange never even went in to get coffee in the morning, so can not give review of breakfast. Location was too far out for the rest of our stay in Marin County so will not choose this location again. Will stay in San Anselmo, San Rafael, or try Airbnb. But if you are in Fairfax or West Marin for a city get-away, or club show in the delightfully, funky ,recovering Hippie town that is Fairfax this is a fine location . We ate breakfast at the coffee shop as we did 20 years ago, 2 grocery stores nearby, some upscale dining available for dinner which we enjoyed, and less upscale available too. 4 nightclubs in town, I guess that's why you'd be here. Inn - average, hospitality- low.

I had stayed at this so called B&B before due to its convenient location. A dear friend of my was ill and I was coming up fairly often to visit. Initially this seemed like a decent place. I would never call it a BED & BREAKFAST however. Cheap packaged type pastries, and Grocery Store Cereals does not a Breakfast make! The Manager of this Place Jay is nice until you complain that your phone does not work. The Office Posted its Hours on the Door, However, they do not HONOR their schedule. Breakfast is served late! Also in the evening, I had need to try another phone. NO ANSWER AT THE DOOR! Upon discussing this the next day with Jay, she was very rude and stated her daughter was there. What was MY PROBLEM?! I came up for a Memorial and Tribute to my now RIP dear friend and reserved 2 days with a possible 3rd. Jay would NOT honor this. She forced me to leave. I highly recommend that you DO NOT STAY HERE! A year or so ago this was a decently run place. Such is NOT the case now whatsoever!
"Downtown location, good rates for a great room"
07/13/08 beaumcp Niagara Region, Ontario
This inn is located right on the main street of Fairfax, tucked in between a bar and the movie theatre, and backing onto a residential area. We drove by the inn at least twice, as the entrance is somewhat difficult to see and there is no real evidence that the inn is even there until you have made that turn in. Fortunately our rental car GPS was insistent about the inn's existence. The exterior of the inn can fool you into thinking that this is a second-rate establishment. As walk-ins at 8:00 on a Thursday night, we were happy to find a place to stay, otherwise we might have passed this one by. Once we opened the door to the room, however, we were astonished to find a beautifully decorated, high-ceilinged living space that was clean, comfortable and full of natural light. Although this location was somewhat noisy on the Thursday and Friday we stayed, you can't beat it for being close to everything in town. The complimentary breakfast was the standard cereal, toast, juice, coffee and sweet breads, but the location overall was fabulous. Staff was friendly and helpful, and they really made us feel like we were at home in their home. We enjoyed shopping, eating at the nearby Iron Springs Brew Pub and hiking in the nearby hills. I would recommend this inn to anyone looking to hang out in Fairfax for a few days or more.
