"Fair price clean rooms."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I have stayed at this hotel many times. it can be hit and miss. the room was clean.. The grounds are pretty. The restaurant was to go only, but they gave you a lot of food. staff was friendly. I was upset at they didn't clean our room and gave us very little TP, because they didn't clean our room and no one answered the phone we had purchase our own TP. even so I do recommend this hotel.

"Unique Place to Stay"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Inn of Marin is a lovely place, so very different than the current modern Inn. We had a garden room and thought it to be comfortable and cozy. Since this inn is very old they have mixed the nostalgia with current amenities. Beds were comfortable, room is clean. Door locks were very curious but effective. Rickys restaurant was nice, food was good, nice bar area with a great menu.

"Overall Nice"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The room and property were nice for some reason they put us in a disabled persons room when there were still plenty of rooms left. The problem was the shower was awful water temp kept changing and pressure just wasn't there.
