“The best in Novato!”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

Some friends had stayed here and loved it, so when our hot water AND heater broke at the same time I went to stay there. It had been 2.5 weeks without heat in the Winter and I had something akin to hypothermia - my body thermostat was thrown out of whack. So, I went to the hotel to get warm. the shower was strong and hot. The room heater worked well, the bed and pillows were great and I sleep 10 hours for 4 days in a row! The cost was very reasonable and much better than Courtyard/Marriott which is Novato's other nice hotel.

Only stayed one night but the room was spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable. The amenities for electronics are right up to spend with the requirements of modern travelers. Even had a couple of USB ports. Staff was very friendly and I was checked in almost before I knew I had arrived - it was late. Very cost effective!

Would have loved to stay longer but had to move on.

Clean room, very nice hotel decor, easy use of wireless internet, excellent restaurant. Everything we had there was good, with the best potstickers (ginger chicken) I've ever had. Our room--not on the hill side which would have been quieter--was a bit noisy with traffic but didn't bother me by the second night.

I traveled here for business and I thought I got a great deal with my stay. The hotel is very nice, the area is lovely and the staff are friendly. The hotel is right next to Highway 101 so there are some freeway sounds but it wasn't very distracting. The only issue I had was the lack of sound proofing, I knew when my neighbors flushed their toilets or ran the water. The bed was very comfortable and I slept great - let's face it the bed and quality is really the most important part of a hotel stay. The free breakfast was the basic hotel breakfast - waffle maker, pastry, english muffins, bagels, toaster, cereals, juice, fruit, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, oatmeal and coffee. Nothing spectacular but it gets you filled up and ready to face the day. Actually I should note that the coffee was quite good for a hotel (and they have a complimentary coffee bar in the lobby all day).

Great value, very clean, friendly staff, convenient location to all Bay Area attractions. Although close to freeway access, the room was quiet. Couldn't ask for a better value overall! Well definitely stay here again.

Great value for a Bay Area Hotel. Close to Highway, close to natural attractions, such as Muir Woods and Coast. Fantastic staff, comfortable lobby, and very nice room with comfortable beds. Very quiet hotel.

We were first greeted with the sight of a beautiful lobby impressively decorated for the Christmas holiday season; the friendly staff that could not be more helpful; our beautifully decorated room was the best value of anyplace in Marin County, California-- and I always compare prices. We will definitely stay here on our next visit and have become a Best Western Rewards member as a result of our stay.
