Marin Suites Hotel
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Corte Madera
Reviewed 24 December 2013

We stayed here for a total of five nights while visiting San Francisco in December. The Marin Suites is probably a 3 star for decor/amenities, but I would give it four stars for location, convenience to grocery stores, kitchen amenities and room size.
The beds were comfortable and the living room area large. For a family seeing SF on a budget, this is an awesome choice. You have a kitchen with full-size fridge, plenty of room for kids, and a daily breakfast bar that has cereal, fruit.
The pool looks nice- too cold in December for us, but we saw some families swimming! In warmer months, the courtyard seating and outdoor spaces would be more inviting.

We appreciate you taking the time to give us your feedback. Yes, we agree that we really are so close to so much in the San Francisco area. We are working on the decor in the rooms to exceed your expectations of a 3 star hotel and we hope that you will stay with us again and see the changes that we are doing with our rooms.

Again, thank you for the review and we hope to see you again,. You and the family can enjoy the pool area on your next stay.

This is the second time we stayed at this property. We have 2 dogs and this is a pet friendly property so it works great for us. Our last stay was about 3-4 years ago. Since that time they have totally refurbished the rooms and grounds. It was very nice, and while it's not the Ritz I stll gave it a high rating for, the cleanliness, amenities such as nice bathrobes, the size and comfort of our suite, and the refurbished grounds. We live in Napa but have many friends and therefore social obligations so we are in Marin a lot. When we don't stay with friends and want to bring our furry children we will definitely stay here.

Our second stay was just as good as the 1st. One stay in summer and one in winter. From the informative clerk, Frances, at the front desk to the knowledgeable maint. staff this hotel is very guest friendly. Clean. Many of the rooms have just been redone. Has it all - a very comprehensive continental breakfast, adequate gym, heated pool, hot tub, Wi-Fi, etc.
We can highly recommend ..

Room Tip: Rooms in the back wing are quieter in the Summer!

Well, we were first impressed when we got upgraded without even asking. I'm sure it wasn't busy season, but the room we ended up in was HUGE and fantastic. FULL kitchen and 2 rooms, comfortable beds, 3 TVs, a large living room area. The heater really really worked well. It felt great after coming in after the rain. The hotel was very easy to get to. We also enjoyed the cute common area with a fireplace for relaxing. The breakfast in the morning was nice as well. Much better than expected. They also had the news on in the breakfast room, so we could get up to date on current events.

Room Tip: if you need to bring a big family, you'll definitely have plenty of space in the 2 bedrooms.

OK, I will say that part of my reason for giving 5-stars was because I was given a free upgrade to a lovely suite. Everything else was great also. Friendly and informative check-in staff, great location, and a very clean well-appointed suite. I noticed negative comments about noise due to thin walls; however I barely heard a sound all night. Maybe, room location could have caused the noise issue. I left very early in the morning so I did not get to eat breakfast. I will definitely stay here again.

This was our second time staying here with our three young children. The first time was not good, but for the location, amenities and price we decided to give it another try. The walls were so thin that the person watching tv above us all night might as well have had the tv in bed with us. This time I requested a room on the top floor thinking this would solve the problem. It did not. The walls are so thin that the people below us with there tv on sounded they same as before. The only difference was not stomping from above. The grounds are great and the breakfast is great. Free wifi is also a plus. The staff has always been great when We were there. They upgraded us to a two bedroom for no additional charge because they didnt have a one bedroom. However, the bathroom doorknob in our room fell off in my hand and the door would not shut at all. The remote did not work in our bedroom, the hot water knob in the bathroom was stripped out so it was very hard to use. The only heat is a wall heater so if you want to close your bedroom doors you will be cold. The amount of dust on the nightstand next to my bed showed me that it hasn't been cleaned in awhile. The main issue with this hotel is the lack of soundproofing. If they would put money into insulating the walls, it would be so much better. My family and I really wanted to have this be our place to stay when we visit our relatives, but unless they update the soundproofing I will be trying another place.

Thank you for your valuable feedback. We appreciate that you are promoting our amenities and what a value we are in the area. Did you know that we are the only property that does offer offers two bedroom suites with a full kitchen? We will upgrade when available.

We are an older property that was built in the early sixties. However, we take tremendous pride with the the condition of the hotel and each room. We are just about done with a complete update with all of the rooms. Having a dusty room is unacceptable and we look into your stay and show this review with our Executive Housekeeper. Will also discuss the stripped faucet handle and door knob.

Regarding the walls, we are looking into alternatives with sound, such as new interior windows. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that you will ever be a soundproof room. We will continue to improve to make each stay as pleasant as possible.

Again, thank you for your feedback. We appreciate the positive comments on the complimentary breakfast and how much you like the staff here at the Marin Suites.
