Set back from the street, this European style B & B was just perfect. Very quiet. The interior and furnishings were stylish and well done. Amenities were nice. The gentleman at the front desk took the time to help me figure where to eat; how to get there; how to get to the movie theatre afterwards, etc. Care. I would totally stay there again and recommend it to friends. A sweet find.
Room was clean and bedding very comfortable. Buffet breakfast included cooked to offer as well. Food was hot and fresh, best breakfast we had so far from hotel provided breakfast. We would stay here again when visiting San Francisco area.
Our party of three spent two nights here exploring Marin County. Short drive to Muir Woods, Muir and Stinson Beaches and Golden Gate National Recreational Area. Nice walking paths with bay views for a stroll and exercise just a block away. The room was nice and clean, included a mini kitchen w/full size refrigerator, microwave. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Dog friendly too! I will definitely be back and recommend this location!

the staff was super friendly and easy to talk to, every question I had was answered and I have no complaints whatsoever. The hotel room was spacious and comfortable, felt like home away from home. The pool, hot tub and outdoor seating area was beautiful. I wish I could have stayed longer. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in that area and next time I visit the city, I will definitely be staying at Marin Suites Hotel. Very much satisfied.
We stayed here for one night on a road trip from Southern California up the coast to Portland. The property apparently is an old-style motel (parking outside the rooms) that has been completely redone. The room and bathroom were small by today's standards, and would not be suitable for any more than 2 people. The room had a nice little balcony overlooking the courtyard and that made the room seem larger. Bed was very comfortable and the room and bathroom were immaculate. A full breakfast is provided, but it is in a restaurant a short distance away that isn't open in the mornings. It's a very easy walk, but it might be a little bit of hassle in bad weather. The breakfast was really good, providing both hot and cold options and fresh fruit. Also the restaurant gave plenty of seating, which can sometimes be a problem in other hotels. We didn't use the internet, so I can't comment on that.
The Inn is in "downtown" Fairfax, adjacent to the movie theater and a bar. Due to flight cancellations from winter weather conditions on the East Coast I ended up at the Inn for 5 days instead of 2 as planned, so I got a pretty good feel for the place. Fortunately business was slow due to a recent spate of bad weather on the West Coast so I could just continue in my room (#5), which was located on the back side of the property. I found the room very comfortable, with a gas log fire place to take the chill off the room when returning in the evening, a nice complement to the room's HVAC unit. Bathroom was modern with a Jacuzzi tub (which I didn't use) and all very attractive in appearance with a vaulted ceiling. Detail work was impressive with high end honey-comb blinds in the windows, although the carpet was a bit lumpy, albeit basically in good shape. Rooms open onto an exterior landing and are accessed via a rather narrow and unattractive stairway near the parking garage. The continental breakfast is minimal, consisting of a selection of various kinds of breads, sweet rolls, coffee, tea, juice, and cereal, squeezed into a corner of an already very small office space, but very homey and on par with what I make do with at home. I have a return visit already planned and recommend the Inn for anyone looking for accommodations in this neck of the woods. I experienced none of the noise issues from the bar that other reviewers have complained about.
