    The room was spacious and had great air conditioning.

    The room was spacious and had great air conditioning. They had blackout drapes and a nice tub. I loved the shampoo and conditioner that was already in refillable dispensers in the tub/shower area. They also had every channel I could ask for with the TV and I was able to access my netflix as well. I will stay there again. Great value.

    San Rafael was a great location for our mission of tracing ancestors in Marin County. It was also easy to get to the San Francisco bay area and beyond. Plenty of shops within a short drive. We even took a trip out to Napa while there.

    There are lots of restaurants on the main street.

    There are lots of restaurants on the main street. There are things to be seen in the surrounding area, but I have seen them before. This trip was to see people. I ate at IHOP, great friendly spot open until 10 pm. Also Phyliss's Giant Burgers - and that's no lie. I also had a very good crepe at the Crepevine Restaurant, which had a large selection of crepes, omelettes, sandwhiches and more.

    I actually visited friends in nearby San Anselmo and it was great, shopped a little, walked around the neighborhoods, ate in some truly inspired restaurants, and thought this is a really special little town To visit. Loved it.

    On site manager and staff very good. General manager is absentee and terrible. Does not make himself available to respond to a reseervation change. The property is not well maintained and is declining in repair. It

    It's a good base from which to visit Marin and other neighboring towns, some that are much more expensive. 4th Street has some good eating, Lundy's and Theresa + Johnny's for breakfast if you need more than Villa Inn's breakfast. Also loved being a short drive (could probably have walked to both restaurants) and to Copperfield's Bookstore. Also if you can't handle the big city, this is a less intense and cheaper option than staying in San Francisco.

    This was a real treat. The property is maintained so well. Everything is in good shape, the rooms are ample and comfortable and the bathroom facilities are excellent. It is very well located just off the freeway and while it looks less stellar than nearby hotels on the same block on the outside, the inside is great! Also, parking is ample and convenient and the manager is very friendly and helpful. It was extremely good value for the money.

    The retreat is very easy to reach from Hwy 101 and convenient to San Rafael and environs. You need a car to get around. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was fine. The decor is clearly very well planned for the hosts. It was a little over the top for us but comfortable. Having access to a washer and dryer was great. As it was cold and rainy we couldn't take advantage of any nearby walking trails or outside spaces.

    Easy check-in, easy access to room without interacting with others (during Covid), free parking, not too far to downtown San Rafael, pleasant couple running the place, good enough coffee in the room, microwave and refrigerator, nice Scandinavian-style easy chair and hassock, bath gel as well as shampoo/conditioner, upgraded towels and sheets compared to a normal "budget" place. Peaceful and quiet, yet close to 101.

    We really liked how quiet and private the hotel was. The rooms were clean and well kept, and the suite we were given had a partial kitchen with a refrigerator and working stove. This brought an additional level of comfort to our stay. The staff were courteous and attentive, we really appreciate how kind Yoely was to us. We will definitely recommend this hotel to friends and will be returning guests.

    The hotel is in a good location, near a large shopping mall. Free and sufficient parking is available at the hotel. The room actually has everything you need and is suitable if you just want a place to sleep but otherwise do not have high demands or expectations. I stayed there for two nights and it was fine, but would opt for a different hotel next time which is a bit more modern.

    Hotel was comfortable but a bit run down. It had a small air-conditioner in the room (very welcome in the heat). The hotel is in a very quiet location. San Rafael is an excellent base for exploring southern Marin County by public transport, because it has good train and bus links north and south, and to the ferry terminals; it has bus services west and east as well.

    Lovely location, close to everything but quiet and peaceful. Very spacious and comfortable, best night’s sleep we’ve had in quite some time! Loved everything about it! The owners were extremely responsive to questions and had excellent recommendations for restaurants and activities. Wish we could have stayed longer!!

    It is an Embassy suites hotel, so the room size is nice. It is nice that one can already go to sleep while the other still sits and reads, watches TV etc. The additional desk is a nice touch. The included breakfast is a good option, even though it is a buffet it has ample choices for everyone.
