quiet restful sleep and a staff who is highly considerate giving kind personal attention
for our purposes, we really had no dislikes...we have traveled extensively both professionally and leisurely
The smel in room was bed , like havy old , open windows but didn't work , no AC !
It was clean!
It is a great location. For the area the cost is very reasonable. Way in advance reservations were not needed.
Not well maintained,No shelving or counter in bathroom,over priced
Arrived late in evening, I had written special request for quiet and staff was accommodating and gave me options. Well located in safe and many places to eat and beautiful area.
Didn't like that I had to leave so early..
Nice owners - came in and helped me with remote control....husband moved his car so I could park close by clean sheets
Filthy old carpet - from the 1970s...tiny room - bedspread ancient...no table for eating...no coffee maker... what furniture there was was old and chipped, no place inside the shower to hold soap, etc. But worse of all....dried fecal matter on toilet seat hinges! wow Travelers deserve better! These guys need to call Hotel Impossible immediately....
Clean, comfortable bed, close to the Larkspur ferry, much less expensive than other places. The clerk was very nice and was up front in reminding us they had large fans in the rooms but no AC.
Lack of air conditioning made the room uncomfortable for a hot day and night.
This was a comfortable, 1950's-style motel, with a nice staff. Our maid/housekeeper (was it Tiana, maybe?) was a tiny Indian or possibly Hispanic lady who worked like a horse to clean our room and those of other guests as well as take care of technical issues in a prompt and efficient manner. She deserves a raise to at least double what she is currently earning.
Nothing! It was great for our needs. Highly recommended for those looking for inexpensive yet comfortable accommodations outside of the City.
Simple. Not paying for frills. Clean but grout was questionable. Friendly counter personality
Had to close windows to block out hwy 101 traffic. If poor sleeper, you still can hear the traffic.
new room clean no smell of cigarette conform bed have microware,refrigerator big closet, clean and big bathroom.
weak wifi (sometime lose connection) no A.C ( just fan) bathroom drainage system slow.
Good location. Close to SF.
A little noisy, next to a main road.
Staff was rude, bedding was poor,room not comfortable
Lousy bed and linen.
the worst hotel I've ever been, we got old, dirty room with broken restroom so at night we had a flood from a toilet, no air-conditioning, noise from highway, even if this hotel was for free, I wouldn't sleep there again
I was able to make a last minute reservation when my husband was put in the hospital. I stayed there several weeks ago also. Very comfortable beds. Not ad for an inexpensive hotel.
The rooms have no air conditioning which doesn't matter in regular weather but heat creates a problem. They do have fans. Also the rooms closest to the highway are noiser than those further back.
Staff was local, location was convenient to public transportation and close to shopping.
The staff was unprofessional, and loud. The tenants were quiet, but grumpy. They got personal with me, traveling alone, and female.
After a very long drive traveling along the coast with no reservations or plans and everything booked we found this motel with 1 room left. The staff is very friendly and accomodations our family into a 2 room suite.
Only problem is that this hotel is along the frontage road of the freeway and the only thing separating the road is a wire fence, so that was kinda of scary. I would have felt safer with a sound wall.
Amazing location. Terrific price. A few minutes from Sausalito. Clean, clean, clean. An old style motel, but absolutely darling - tastefully decorated - new feeling
Nothing to dislike.
It satisfied my needs
It was very conveniently located. And, in the morning upon check out, the woman working the desk was pleasant.
It was actually a little scary on presentation. Weren't sure wether or not we would be attacked in the night by some kind of creepy crawlers. We weren't but it didn't make for a very good night's sleep.
Super small no air conditioning poor room maintenance cheap thin towels
Cheap and right near SF
No air conditioner. Customers should know that before booking.
King size bed was the only nice thing.
Everything was old, it was way too expensive.
