Avoid this motel unless you are an exhibitionist or a porn star who works for free. Don't let your daughter take a bath or shower naked. On August 7, 2016, I stayed in room 109. I could hear the high tech, peeping tom perverts next door in room 108 describing everything I was doing in detail to each other through...

Look closely at their photos. Do you see a train track right outside the front door? The reason you don't see any interior shots is the place is DIRTY. Possibly the worst place I have ever been in. I cancelled my reservation the moment I walked in. I later found out they charged me anyway. Don't stay herr, don't even...

The picture featured is very deceiving, property was dirty, parking spaces are very small/tight, and if you want a soft comfy bed this is not the hotel for you. The king size bed was like sleeping on hardwood floor. You also have to pay if you want some ice. Needless to say if was a restless and disappointing stay.

I just stayed at this hotel and I would never stay here again nor recommend it to anyone! I have read all of the poor reviews on this page and even though the management keeps saying they are going to fix things and make improvements, they have done nothing. The beds are like concrete, the property dirty and not in...

This was the only hotel/motel within close proximity to where the wedding was going to be. We would have to go several miles as it was, but we needed to spend the night. We checked in before going to the wedding. The elevator had dirty wet towels piled up and they were still there when we left about 30 minutes...

I stayed here for one night in July. The pro's are it's very affordable for the area, the location is great, and the staff was courteous. Unfortunately for me the cons outweighed the pro's... A very dirty property, both outside the room and inside. The corners of my room had dirt/dust piled up. The parking was not great. Looked like...

Very convenient for Northern Marin County, along with rooms that fit whatever needs you have, such as 3-4 guests. Also, excellent service by the maids, maintenance workers, front-desk personel, as well as the manager!

Room was a decent price and the sheets were clean. That's the only good thing. Yhe remote for the tv was so dirty that when I cleaned it my rag turned black. Our feet were black from the floors. They charge you for the ice machine. The walls in the bathroom are dirty with heaven knows what. Breakfast is muffins...

I want to start this review by stating that the staff working here are courteous and helpful. However, this stay has been one of the two worst lodging experiences I have EVER experienced. Problems--internet really doesn't work in rooms--really a problem as I am here on business. No working plug in bathtub, litter all over the place. The owner of...
