Good hotel within walking distance of the Wharf. Very nice hotel staff. I would recommend paying a little more for your own bathroom in your room rather than using the community bathroom. But very pleasant experience.

Close to Muir WoodsRoom was newly remodeled. Clean and comfortable. Rest of hotel was under construction, and there is still a lot to be done. Noisy garbage pick up at 6:00am got me up earlier than planned, was on the back side, away from highway. Was easy to get to Muir Woods from this location.

All in All not too badThe place was very clean and fairly quiet. I don't think I would stay there for a vacation with my wife and kids, but for a business trip it was more than adequate. The price was very reasonable for the accommodations provided. No coffee pot but the refrigerator and microwave were very convenient. ...
