Travelodge is the best option if its kind we have found in the typically expensive Marin area. Rooms were clean and staff was friendly and helpful. Free wifi worked well. The breakfast was good compared to places like Americas Best but don't expect a real breakfast for free here.

This is a typical "affordable" motel in the area. But, even with that, "small" things can go a long way. You get the distinct impression that the owners would really just prefer to put out their hand, you put the money in it, and they walk away, providing the bare minimum to meet Wyndham standards, and not a square of...

We booked this though Hotwire and sometimes that can be like Russian Roulette. The surrounding area was dirty, full of shady looking folks.

I reserved a room here based on cost in the area so I accept that it isn't a very good hotel. If you can spend more then do so and stay somewhere else.

Manager explained there was no coffee maker in my room and was unwilling to replace it during my stay. The floor of my room slated steeply towards the front door of the room. Housekeeping failed to restock the bathroom towels. Save yourself - stay anywhere else.

staff was very friendly and helpful. Would have liked more coffee and cups in the room but when I asked they were very happy to accommodate. Super comfortable bed, quiet room.
