If you have to sure
The building itself is run down and doesn’t give that “I’m in a safe place” vibe. It was loud at night from other rooms.
A Traveler, us1 night trip

Comfortable room; run down facility
The good: easy on/off to 101, very short drive to dining in downtown San Rafael. Updated comfortable room with a good bed and shower. A great price for a comfortable room in the area. The not so good: from the outside, the place looks like it's falling apart, including a drained pool with half the roof removed. Sketchy people, many of them looking like long-term residents.
David, us4 night trip
Villa Inn, San Rafael
Broken refrigerator, broken lamp, yucky residue on countertop, stained sheets. Shabby. Exterior also in very poor condition. Room vibrates when people walk by outside the room. Internet only available intermittently. Call to lobby not answered. Restaurant not open. Awful.
Cynthia, us2 night trip
Villa Inn, San Rafael
Serious neglect to a once good place.
Villa Inn was once a good place to stay. It is no longer. There are some serious maintenance problems on the property. The rooms are very threadbare. The local area is wonderful and was the only reason we chose the place. Too bad. Good management could really make this place work.
