Little gem in San Rafael!
Love Marin Lodge. Clean spacious rooms, park 20 feet from your door. Very close to the Civic Center. I often arrive late and they work with me.

Great Accommodations
Delightful older motel that has been updated. We stayed in the handicapped room and were pleasantly surprised at the lack of noise, despite being next to the office and having the window open. The room itself seems small because much of the square footage is dedicated to the handicap bathroom, which feature a huge roll-in shower and handicap-height toilet and sink. The room was immaculate, the bedding clean and fresh, and the air conditioner cold and quiet. The managers are a delightful couple who are more than willing to help with suggestions and directions. The office feature coffee, tea, juice, fresh pastries and fruit is in the morning. The only caveat is the lack of a tall clothes closet. This room only has a small, low, box-like closet with a few hanger, so I suggested they put an armoire in the bathroom. I've stayed at The Marin Lodge before and the other rooms do not lack closet space. It's a niece place to stay and I'll be back.
