    The rooms were upgraded and spacious for the room size.

    It was large, with a separate fully-equipped kitchen and table, very comfortable bed, large washroom, quiet and cozy. Staff very helpful and friendly. Excellent cafe on the premises with gourmet food!

    Breakfast was a bust...not very healthy..and the juice machine was not working. But for the price, absolutely no complaints!

    It was in a pretty area and close to the event.

    Outdated room and only a few things for the breakfast; no fruit, good coffee machine but very few things to eat for breakfast.

    Location, full kitchen:

    Full kitchen, with garage sale dishes, pan, greasy and food caked utensils, garage sale eating utensils. Front desk rude, had no clean replacements saying I should have brought my own kitchen supplies. Two old coffee mugs stained in the cupboard. I was told "that is not dirty" with rudeness and arrogance. I actually feared for my safety. Electrical outlet plugs near sink with no wall plate cover, also on wall. Front door vandalized: jam broken, metal door dented, deadbolt damaged causing difficulty upon entering and exiting. Renovations looked to be taking place by crew living in rooms. Other family members living full time in rental rooms.

    Near freeway and availabilty of all attraction and local cities to visit.

    Will visit at a later time to see how remodeling creates a more pleasent appearance and self-serve breakfast.

    The site is conveniently located for visits to San Francisco.

    When booking I specifically searched for self catering facilities. The kitchen was not good. The web site described the facility haveing a "full kitchen". It was less than basic. I had to go to stoe to purchase the basic utensits needed to use the cooker (only partially operationsl) and the excellent fridge/Freezer.

    I enjoyed the central location to many terrific sites - Marin County and Sonoma within easy drives. The rooms were not luxurious but were very comfortable and convenient. Liked the 1930's spanish look and the natural setting behind the room where we saw black tail deer amble by. From our room we could also see the water in the distance. It was very near the highway and shopping for easy access and convenience, but located in a residential area so you felt at home.

    Driving up late a night and not seeing any other cars made us a little leary. It turned out that most of the parking was at the back of the motel. Also, the continental breakfast could be beefed up. The packaged sweet rolls and trouble with the juice and coffee machine were not up to what I would like. But the price of the room allowed me to overlook these weaknesses.

    Almost no breakfast, no places for sitting, you can have it after 7:40 but not always. They call it continental breakfast but it is just bagels with jam and butter. It is OK for a solo traveller. I would not recomend for a family trip.

    We stayed in a suite with two queen beds and a kitchen, so it was pretty large.

    The room was dingy and in a state of extremely poor repair. Bed linens were dirty. Carpet stained. The walls in the bedroom area were covered in mysterious smudges. Paint was peeling off in the bathroom, leaving the walls warped with water damage. Some of the curtains were hung with duct tape.

    It was spacious.

    The bathroom was dirty. There was dried pee scum and pubic hair on the porcelain surface behind the hinge of the toilet seat. There was a used bottle of shampoo in the shower, and there were bits of curly hairs around the bed, and in the drawers of the nightstand. After my husband used the toilet - shortly after entering the room, it promptly clogged. We called the night manager, who came with a toilet plunger to make it all flow again. The toilet plunger splashed brown water around the toilet seat and floor, which the manager would not clean up. When I asked him to give me some cleaner so that I could at least clean it up, he simply said that "no-one is available to clean right now" - as he stood there, with the used plunger dripping poop-water upon the bathroom floor and also upon the carpeted area between the bathroom and the entry-door. It was very late, so I always used the toilet with strips of toilet paper on the seat and put bathroom towels on the bathroom floor and entry carpeting to assuage my sense of disgust. This is a Last Resort Motel - as in "resort to", the opposite of luxury resort. Oh yes, the manager then told me that my husband "should not have clogged the toilet." What a first-letter-of the-alphabet + letters double-S

    It was very convenient for my visits to Marin County, clean spacious rooms, excellent value for money and very friendly staff. Free parking and easy to explore the surrounding area. Would stay again.

    Though very clean the rooms were not in great decorative order - including the mattress, sheets and blankets. I felt this was reflected very sensibly in the price so overall quite happy with my stay.

    Budget-friendly, comfortable, convenient, clean. Great restaurant on premises called the Novato Cafe.

    Renovation in progress is taking too long to complete. Get it done, already!
