We chose this hotel because it was dog friendly and close to our activities. We did some hiking in the Marin Headlands, visited Muir Woods and went in to San Francisco. Very clean and spacious and the staff was great!

Location: Tagets, Whole food Market,
I liked the room that I stayed, it was very clean, nice view, but there was a funky smell in the hallways(maybe because of the rain). Anyways, it's not like that I am going to stay in the hallways. Target and whole food market were near by, so I could grab few stuffs from there.

Although this hotel wasn't fancy, it fit our needs well. The kids loved swimming in the pool! I appreciated having a kitchen to prepare meals during our stay. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The "grab-and-go" breakfast is pretty minimal--we ended up buying yogurt, milk, and fruit to augment the granola bars, packaged muffins, and instant oatmeal they offered.

Hotel and room were all very nice. Hotel staff acted a little 'put-off' that I was checking in late (8pm); other than that, they were helpful though. Room was clean and quite, except for the bed. My goodness! You can tell that the bed has been slept in a LOT! The mattress sagged and the box spring creaked really loud getting in and out of the bed or rollover. They both should have been replaced a long time ago.

Room was dusty sand muggy. Continental breakfast was one of the worst. Bed was uncomfortable and the walls were incredibly thin in which hearing neighbors and people outside easily. The staff seemed genuinely miserable to work there besides Sarah. I would not be returning to any Extended Stay ever

It is a sad place, tyoucak roadside hotel

Location: This is on the freeway away from town. It is away from food and support services... There are better choices in Marin,
Drab, drab.,, and not in good shape. Changed rooms 3 times before the key would work in the door... and then the door did not even fit the frame leaving a gap open to the hall. Fire hazard at the least and clearly requiring a Notice of Correction from the Fire Department.
