“Uncomfortable bed but great view.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

We stayed here on business and we were lucky to get a room that had a terrific view to the ocean. We stayed here once before and had a room facing the road which was not so great! So ask for a room with a view! The room itself is spacious and clean but what lets it down is the very uncomfortable bed which is very hard. They put some sort of cover over the mattress which comes undone during the night and makes sleeping impossible. I would stay here again but for no more than one night.

Stayed October 2013, travelled on business

This was a perfect spot for us. I had a Reunion in Sleepy Hollow/ San Francisco explore/ and Sir Francis Drake to the ocean. It was perfect AND they take dogs. The Shoreline trail is 2 blocks away and was perfect for the morning walk....so beautiful.

Room Tip: w/ a dog we were 1st floor and it was very safe and handy for those 2 am pee breaks. btw..BYO ice...

Just stayed there for two weeks during a consulting visit to the area. I had a room on the 3rd floor with a view of the Bay. Walked along the Bay Trail every evening after long day of work. Rooms are clean and well maintained. The place made this work visit very enjoyable.

For the price and quality, this was an excellent hotel to stay in! The staff was very accommodating and friendly! Debbie helped us out by loaning office supplies and copying documents that were needed for a conference. Any small issues we had were quickly taken care of by the attentive staff. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Higher floors have less noise

Our stay at the hotel was excellent. The rooms were clean and well suited for a multi-day business trip. The staff was friendly & extremely helpful. We checked in late in the evening after a full day of traveling and then setup for a conference. The rooms were ready, the check-in was smooth and the hotel was quiet. So we enjoyed a good night sleep and were ready for the days ahead. The breakfast station was simple, but covered the basic needs for a quick breakfast. So we headed off for the day with a good cup of coffee and something in our stomachs to get us going. Overall a great place to stay. I will be back.

First 3 nights we were in a room with noisy refrigerator, 4th night we moved to bay view room. It was excellent - great view, clean, and quiet. With cooking facility, we got to eat homemade food every day. I was able to finish a critical project on time by connecting to office thru Wi-Fi.
Friendly front desk staff - Debbie, Teresa, Sam, Tammie, and Douglas made our trip wonderful. Teresa always gives people warm welcome; she gave us a homey feeling.

Just a great staff who makes you fell right at home. Hotel has a pool, hot tub, laundry, exercise area, and indoor lounge and entertainment area. It also has a sheltered barbeque and smoking area out back with table and chairs for outdoor picnics and evening entertainment. All rooms have kitchenettes and larger rooms have extra roll out couch beds.
Great walking and biking path along the water's edge and walking distance from hotel. Less than five minutes to Larkspur Ferry with frequently runs to San Francisco and special runs to and from Giants games at AT&T park boat dock. Ferry parking lot is free. Also, just across from the ferry dock is the Marin Country Mart shopping center with fitness facilities, restaurants, boutiques, movie theaters, entertainment & events, kids area, etc. Walking bridge connects shopping center with ferry dock.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter and on the 4th floor you have a view of the Bay and the East Bay hills...
