A hidden gem
Posted Nov 5, 2016
I was pleasantly surprised by my recent stay at Inn Marin. Though I've driven by for more than twenty years, I never had a reason to stay here until recently. All I can say is this quickly became one of my favorite local hotels. My room was charming, spotless, and comfortable. It had two doors to the outside and parking right outside one of them --a great boon for anyone traveling with a lot of luggage. The bathroom--though small--was also spotless. The beds were comfortable and clean. I stayed here with my puppy and the pet fee was only $20 per night and rules for what would incur additional costs were clearly spelled out and very easy to follow. The place is a little older, but well maintained. I ordered room service from the restaurant and had the salmon with potatoes. My dish was excellent and just the right amount of food. As a woman traveling alone, I felt comfortable staying here and even though it is right off of the freeway, I felt like I was in a different world. A 24-hour Safeway is just on the other side of the freeway for any sundries needed. In the morning, when I went in for breakfast, I saw the other, more elegant side of the property and it is beautiful, with well tended gardens, a fountain, and a pool. For dog owners the pluses include several places to walk your dog and hardwood floors which are much easier to clean quickly in the event of an accident. I definitely plan to stay here again.
