All the people are wonderful and the hotel overall is great. Central HVAC means either heat or cooling based on the season with limited control. Had to open patio door to regulate temp. In room refrigerator was a good freezer but both typical for hotels. Could have used an updated mattress but OK, sagged where too many have slept in...

Reviewed 3 weeks ago

the not so good: Not a pedestrian friendly area - not that they have any control over that, but you may wish to know that. Also, if you do have a vehicle, be aware of the traffic patterns to plan your trip...traffic heading towards San Francisco in the mornings is very backed up, although just fine going in the opposite...

I had a pleasant stay. The front desk was very polite and efficient at checking me in. The property is pretty large with good parking. The room I had was good size with a balcony on the top floor, comfortable beds and quiet. Freeway access is very easy to get my work day started the next day.

I've stayed here a few times for a conference. It's a convenient location, close to good restaurants, movies, and other things to do at night or on weekends. There is a hilly trail through nature with sweeping views of the Bay Area, a nice discovery told to me by staff. It is next to the freeway, which makes it convenient...

We stay here whenever we visit our daughter , who lives in Petaluma. Although it is 15 minutes away it is by far the best choice of lodging in the area. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. They offer a lot of decent options in their self serve breakfast every morning, which is included. There is a great restaurant...

We had a wonderful time and the location was situated perfectly between San Francisco and where we wanted to visit in Marin, CA. The hotel, staff, and value enhanced our stay and I recommend for any travelers. Even though we were on a personal get away the hotel is suited for all types of travelers.

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. The staff were very friendly. The continental breakfast was much appreciated. The room was spotless and very comfortable. We just stayed overnight on our way to the airport, but would recommend it for longer stays.

Well-maintained rooms and property. Extraordinarily helpful staff. Left my iPhone charger in room, and they were attentive in returning it. Pretty location along hillside, with pool area secluded looking at hill. In south Novato close to freeway, so it's convenient to San Rafael.
