Inn Marin is definitely a blast from the past -- in a good way! The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is fresh & adequate in a nice setting. The lobby is a homey place to relax by the fire. The rooms are clean and you can't beat the rate!

Found this hotel while looking for a pet friendly facility and wasn't disappointed. The owners have done a wonderful job restoring the property with green touches/efforts. Room was quite large with comfortable furniture. Realizing that it is a restored motor inn from the 1950's, you understand why the bathrooms are small but again they've done great work with the restoration....

This is not a 4 star hotel - only a 3 - probably. BUT we had a great stay and the hotel met our needs so I'm rating OUR visit at 4. The rooms were clean and the staff was very pleasant. Plus you can't beat the rate (we had a group rate - even a lower rate than the...

We needed to be in Novato for a family event. So we decided to try Inn Marin. We booked late and ended up having to buy the king jacuzzi suite. It's certainly not what I would call a suite, more like a motel room with a wall between the bed and the couch. The heaters are window units and they...

Imagine an old road motel that marries a new boutique hotel and you have the vision of Inn Marin. I only wish they'd spent a little more on the bathroom accoutrements -- the mirrors are a bit distorted, the toilet paper holders are cheap and the towel racks do not hold well. It's a bit overpriced but I was there...

We noticed how close we were to the freeway but many motels have enough sound insulation to block the noise...not this one! We went to bed about 12 o'clock and the freeway was definitely an issue but we put on some sound machines and managed to fall asleep. My wife was up at 3 am when the truck noise started...

I am very sorry you had this experience. The room that you booked through Priceline was a Highway room and is priced at this rate because it is a highway room. Our highway rooms are priced 20-30% lower than our Garden rooms that are away from the highway. It is very unfortunate that price line does not tell you this...

After looking at the pictures and reading the anecdotes of country style weddings here, I guess my expectations were set a little too high. The street leading up to the hotel is littered with dilapidated stores and dirty lots. The property itself is fairly well maintained, but the layout gave me the feeling of a cheaper motel. Room was nicely...

We were very pleased with the value of Inn Marin. The room was clean and, the grounds were fun, and the lobby and resturaunt were more than expected. The breakfast was satisfying and convenient, and the staff was very accomadating of our toddler. They had a crib for us at no additional charge. I don't have a single complain. We...

Very charming place to stay. Rooms updated and cozy. Would be more than willing to stay at Inn Marin again. The restaurant served a very nice meal for the price. The Inn appears to be popular with the locals with a wedding reception on the night we arrived and a brunch the next day.

“Since each room has a door from the parking area, and also a main door is into the quiet inner lawn area, the effect is peaceful.”
