Verified Reviews of Inn Marin & Suites Ascend Hotel Collection

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Overpriced dirty Hotel."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
We paid $250/night for what we thought was going to be a quaint relaxing weekend stay. The rooms were spacious but the wood floors were dirty. Upon arrival there was actually lettuce stuck on the floor by the door. The pool was freezing and were told they never heat it. It was dirty with all kinds of dirt and leaves on the bottom and the top of water was just as bad with floating bugs. Around the pool were discarded straws, limes, glasses. Tables were not wiped down from food. We even found stuck on one of the chase lounges the protection lining of a womens swimsuit. The hot tub had not been cleaned and you can see the scum ring around it. I had reach in the skimmer to get a ball my grandson was playing and pulled out a clunk of something that I almost threw up. The grass area was nice but littered with candy wrappers around the chairs and fire pit we sat at. Those chair tops were covered with bird poop that we had to clean off along with the tables that had again food stuck to them. Once fire pit did not work the first night but the tank was changed the 2nd day. I asked for the chairs and tables to be wiped down but never was nor was the pool ever cleaned. My grandson had a potty accident sitting on our bed and called the front desk to have sheets changed. They never did and we had to sleep with a blanket I happened to bring from home. A iron was missing from out room and they were to bring us one and never did. It is unfortunate because this property could be a hidden gem if they would just keep it up and have better service.

"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.
