Rancho Palos Verdes, California
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Convenient location just off the freeway, but still very quiet. Very clean, updated room. The best thing were the toiletries offered in the bath room. EO brand products...local. EO is a family owned and operated botanical body care manufacturer based in northern California. This is a luxury brand. I'll go back just for these products.

The continental breakfast was nice and the coffee was good. I guess the price is so high because it's Marin and one of the few pet friendly hotels in the county. We didn't get to eat at the restaurant this time but I have before and it was good.

Rooms have been redone in the last 10 years. Plank wood floors. Seems clean. Older bathrooms, no bath tub, just shower. This is a budget hotel, more like a higher end motel. It is right off the freeway which you can hear. It has a courtyard that looks really nice and a nice pool, outdoor. The breakfast is included, buffet...

Well all I can say is that they must have a great photographer to make this place look quaint and inviting! BUT it was extremely dirty, dingy, OLD, and run down. Never have my friends and I ever asked to see the room before we completed the check in process. The best thing this place has going for it, is...

I come to Marin County often on business - and manage to fit in some great fun and hiking and social times as well. After staying in various places (including with friends) I found that Inn Marin is where I felt most comfortable, most convenient, and the most for the money. Right off Highway 101, and yet so private and...

Thank you for your kind words, Inn Marin is on 5 Acers of grass and trees with one of the largest liquid Amber trees in all of Marin County. Since the property was built back in 1949 as a courtyard hotel they put front and back doors in all our courtyard rooms. Our goal is to create a “Home away...

A coworker booked my reservation. The staff was friendly and very helpful. My room was clean. However, as a lone, female traveler, I would've never chosen to have stayed at a motel with 2 doors which opened to the outside (no interior hallways--so anyone can access your doors). I much prefer hotels with a front desk, whereas everyone has to...

I stayed at Inn Marin on a business trip. Don't expect much in the way of front desk service, the service and food at Rickey's, or a workout room. The front desk couldn't give me a receipt when I left because the staff couldn't figure out how to do it. Rickey's was horrible. The server put in the wrong order...

I stayed in the Jacuzzi suite, which is very comfortable, for most of my stay. One room includes a couch and two chairs as well as a television. The bedroom also has a tv and a large jacuzzi tub, which was perfect for post hike therapy! There is also a refrigerator and coffee maker in the bedroom. I stayed in...

The place has been there a long time. Lobby and restaurant area is clean, bright and renovated. Our room was small and the bathroom smaller. It wasn't really clean if you look behind or touched to top of anything more than eye level it was covered in dust. The shower was hot but not so super powerful. Wi-Fi worked very...
