This was one of the best places I have stayed for the price. You can't beat the location as well as the friendly Staff. The muffins were the best I've had in awhile. Very nice and spacious rooms as well as good tv channels. I will stay here again when I'm down that way!!

Been here a few times and this is still an awesome little motor inn on Lincoln ave in San Rafael right off the 101. Very clean and neat, with well appointed rooms. Heavy linens, towels and comfortable bedding. Rooms have a work station and chair, mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. A sitting area with wall mount flat screen and a large bathroom and large walk in shower. The king bed was quite comfortable though a little hard for my personal preference. Parking is tight and small but very convenient, literally right outside your door. The owners are on property and very friendly and helpful, and again made us feel welcome for stopping for the evening. Easy access to the highway both off and on. The noise level is minimal for being so close to the highway, the motel is located within a residential neighborhood and is situated nicely into the hillside. There are lots of places to stay in the area that are much more money, but if you are looking for a nice comfortable and reasonably priced place to stay close to the bay, about 10-12 minutes to the G.G. bridge, the Marin lodge is a great choice.This is my go to place to stay whenever we are staying in the north bay area. You will be glad you did too.A solid 5 star motor inn

This place is awesome. My boyfriend & I both felt a calming vibe right from the start. Staff is extremely friendly, complimentary sodas & water, wow!! Room was fresh & clean. Top quality linens & toiletries. The blueberry muffins in the morning were the best I've ever had, coffee was on point. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. It was so quiet & peaceful. I don't tend to rave about hotels, but this place is stellar. I'll stay here even when I have business all the way in Santa Rosa.

Wanted to give it a 5 but will explain later.   I really like this place.  Recently remodeled,  clean and best of all,  a great bed.  Their location is excellent,  1/ 2 mile to 101 and 1 mile to downtown.   And,  park right in front of your unit like the old days.  Great bargain for bay area at $109.    Donuts,  coffee,   coke for free.  My complaint was the Wifi.   They had 7 different ones but none of them were fast enough to allow me to work.   TIME TO UPGRADE

This was a great find on our California road trip would definitely stay here again close to Frisco and all Marin has to offer very clean room and liked sitting outside enjoying a light breakfast free soda and water a great bargain

This is a quiet little lodge set off of the freeway. My fiancée and I spent hours looking for a place that wasn't going to cost us 200+ a night while we were visiting San Francisco. I came across this on Yelp and we decided to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised. It was a very simple motel no pool or amenities at all but it was very clean and quiet. The owners were nice and we had a peaceful stay. The blowdryer is a little old fashioned and the light in the bathroom didn't want to stay on (motion light) but overall if you need a simple place to sleep that's clean and quaint, this is for you. I would stay again!

Great place to stay! Very friendly staff and everything is incredibly clean. I am in the apartment management industry and out of habit I notice things like caulking around tubs, toilets and sinks and if it's clean, dirty or missing. Light switch covers, carpet and other things and how clean they are. It's a hazard of my job and I have to say that this place was amazing!The beds and pillows are great and I had a wonderful nights sleep. They don't have amenities like laundry room, pool or spa but I still have them 5 stars because of the cleanliness and comfort of what they have.Book early because they fill up fast.

LOVE THIS PLACE!  Can not say enough about how easy it was to check in. The room was great and clean.  The furniture was modern.  The location is great for heading into San Raphael.  No problems getting in and out at rush hour.  If I'm ever lucky enough to get out that way again I would most definitely stay there.

What a wonderful little motel. A best kept secret in San Rafael. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, friendly staff..... All for a great price. Glad I found it and will stay there again. Easy access to the 101 makes it very convenient for a trip to Sausalito or San Francisco. Highly recommend it.

We booked this trip through booking.com 6 months in advance. When we arrived, we found out that booking.com failed to communicate that we wanted 2 rooms. Despite our frustration, the owners went above and beyond to make sure we were accommodated and managed to bring out some spare mattresses for us. These guys are the epitome of good servants. Seriously, they made our trip and I can't say enough good about them. The rooms are great as well. I thought this might be a small motel dive but it's a hidden jewel.

This was my second time staying here. We stayed about a year and a half ago. Since then, there's been a change in ownership however the service is still magnificent! The rooms are very spacious and clean. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend the Marin Lodge and it's only a 15-20 minute ride to San Francisco. I can't wait to come back!

This is now my 2nd time staying here. This place is so quaint. It's a great price and location as well as very nice and comfortable . I found this place on hotels.com and decided to try it because it's not a far drive to the Marin General hospital. I feel in love with it. Now every time I need a room out here I will stay here. I'm by myself and it is safe, quiet and parking is right out front. You gotta stay here. The owners and staff are really nice people.

When I pulled up, I knew I chose the right place to stay in San Rafael. Landscaping is pretty. It's cute, small, comfy, clean, has well organized rooms and is pretty quiet for being located off the street. It is located about a mile walk from food and shopping. I work remotely so I really appreciate the free wifi, large marble desk/work space and office chair in the room. Good rates per room too.

Owner's were very friendly and give great service!  The rooms were clean and had all new modern furniture.  Great breakfast including starbucks coffee, muffins, pastries and fruit.  Plus they always had bottled water and sodas available for you in the lobby.  Wifi was fast and they also had a lobby computer to use with a printer.  Close to restaurants shops and the freeway, perfect location.You get a lot more than you pay for!!!!  Wonderful stay.

My husband and I stayed here for 6 glorious nights in October for our honeymoon. Great proximity to the 101 for easy access to San Francisco sightseeing, Marin County and Sonoma/Napa Wine Country. Beethoven was wonderful, the room was clean, spacious shower, nice seating area with ample mirrors and did I mention the comfy bed with plush bedding, which was very much appreciated after a long day of walking around the city. Would love to stay again if we have a chance to visit Northern Cal again!!

Room was AWESOME! People were sooooo nice there. Mgr gave me towel to wipe car window to keep. They left key under mat since we missed closing time. Nice little courtyard to eat. peaceful, safe and great employees! We stayed in 7 other places during this trip. None were as good as this one!! Stay here on your way up North, you'll love it!San Diego, CA

We stayed at the Marin Lodge one night. Check in was easy and the room was clean and nicely updated. Marin Lodge appears to be a converted motel. However, The decor and furnishings were excellent and the bed was comfortable. The room was spacious, with a large desk, fridge, and microwave. They had complimentary pastries and coffee in the morning. Parking was free and the area was quiet. We will definitely return.

Super friendly staff and great affordable rooms. I really enjoyed my two night stay here. Thanks guys!
