Made reservations through booking.com, arrived at the hotel at 5:30 had dinner reservations before a show for 6:15. I was NOT told that the room I reserved was not avilable. When I found out and asked to change for the room I had reserved I was told that some other people decided to stay longer than initially planned and therefore...

We stayed here for one night before heading to San Francisco. The room was clean and spacious. The decor of the room was nice but the bed covers should be replaced as they were badly stained. The location was not that great but we were here for one night only so it served our purpose. If we were to stay...

Didn't want to stay in this area but ended up here... Long story. It was getting late and we were tired so stopped here. The desk clerk was fine. Not real sure of the neighborhood we checked in and went to our room. It looked like they tried to make the place nice I mean it was small but they...

We are on a tight budget, searched for the best value, a nice and inexpensive place.... this is what we found over 15 years ago: This is a very nice, clean, and comfortable family owned hotel. We have been returned visitors for approx. 15 years and feel a part of the family. Throughout the years, the owner/staff continue to be...

The refrigerator did not work, there were holes in the blankets, a musky smell, thin walls, and poor cellular reception.

I was surprised to see how well maintained this place was. The rooms are in excellent condition. I'm guessing the rooms have been recently renovated. For a 2 star hotel, it's an excellent place to stay.

Great room, friendly staff, good Wi-Fi, and under 100 dollars for the Bay Area. My only complaint would be the traffic noise from the freeway, but that quieted down and I slept wonderfully. Will definitely stay again soon.

This motel wins my award of having the most functional motel furniture. I liked the layout of the room very much, and everything was new and clean. I got a room with two beds because it was cheaper, but that made it a little cramped. There was a computer desk, comfortable chair, surfaces to put things, sink outside the bathroom,...

Teh motel room was adequate to oour needs. The location is east of the central section of San Rafael and meant getting in the car to get anywhere. The second night we stayed there we drove up to the room, only to find the parking lot full of worker's pickups and a group standing outside our room smoking and drinking...

Drove in after pricing two other comparative places. We extended two more nights. Clean and nicely decorated. They made the best of having a small breakfast area. One complaint was that yogurt and bananas were missing on our second two days leaving me only less healthy choices. Perhaps previous breakfast guests may have taken them? The pillows were so comfortable.
