For several years we have been using Best Western Corte Madera Inn as a favored place to stay when visiting the Bay Area. We like the shopping that is convenient to its location. San Francisco is just a hop away down the 101 and across the Golden Gate. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, also well appointed. Staff is courteous and helpful, and the free breakfast at the restaurant next door is really good. Some of the rooms sometime seem a little dated, but this is not a deterrent to us. It's a great location.
Convenience, price Motel-style set-up.
Front desk people were great we got in a little late. They kept the pool open for us which was a lot of fun. Then we relaxes by the fire pit. Great hotel just outside of San Fran.
Seedy, bad smelling rooms. Did not feel clean. Never again.
Rooms were quite big and comfortable. Many extras on the propert in an excellent location.
Bed was great. Room big. Good breakfast. Huge pool. Right off freeway. Would stay again. No elevator. Sink/vanity not enclosed in bathroom. No bar.
The Marin Suites is next door to the Book Passage bookstore where we see many famous Authors visiting to sign their books. The location is only minutes from three malls and the freeway to Napa or San Francisco.
I liked that is was clean and quiet and that breakfast was included.
Room had a poor Ac . Just too hot
This motel was close to Book Passage, where I was attending a multi-day event. It is walking distance to a Safeway for purchasing groceries and ready-made meals, and a RiteAid drugstore for purchasing toiletries. The sheets and towels were clean (although the sheets did have cigarette burns in places), the furniture dusted, and the carpet swept. The hotel provided ample soap, shampoo, and toilet paper.The room rate was very inexpensive compared to the few other motels/hotels close to Book Passage. I stayed here in spite of other reviews on that account. The room condition was run-down. There was an aroma that never went away The bathroom sink was falling off the wall and the drain leaked onto the floor. There was a small kitchen area with a battered refrigerator and a gas stove, but there were no cooking utensils, glasses, or even a roll of paper towel. The owner did not understand my request for instructions on accessing the in-room wireless internet connection It's hard to say whether this room was an anomaly. If you are on a very tight budget, you can probably overlook the negatives -- you're only sleeping there.
It's proximity to where I needed to be at daytime. The room smelled foul. Bed covers and linen had sigarette burn holes in them. The drapes were in bad shape and did not close entirely. The bathroom fan/light made an incredible noise. ( we decied to not turn it on, when possible!). The upstairs floor (outside) consisted of bare plywood, and looked not too sturdy. My recommendation would be to do a complete overhaul.
The hotel was close to the center where my training occurred so that was helpful. It was helpful to have a small frig and microwave handy as well. the hotel was dirty with broken tiles in the bathroom, filth on the walls and doors, the towels had holes in them and were so thin it was ridiculous.
Nothing was good about this place except that it is close to highway 101. Everything. The hotel was dirty. There was no maintence done. For example, the clothes hanging rod was missing and the hangers were just laying around. You could not open the only dresser because the bed was in the way. I could go on but you get the idea.
The convenient location and clean bedding were the only things positive about this place! It was old and dingey with dirt on the walls in the bathroom, mold in the shower, leaky shower head, no fan or window screen in the bathroom, the towels were gray and stained, the wall heater was covered with rust, dirt, and lint, you could see day-light through the wall mounted air conditioner, there was only one key per room, burned out light bulbs, non-functioning outlets, no ice machine or soda machine, shoddy repairs in the bathroom, and the couple managing it spoke very little English!
The hotel was very affordable compared to other hotels in the nearby area and was right next to the freeway that takes you to downtown San Francisco. The facilities are a little old but fairly maintained. For the low price you can't demand luxuries, especially in an area where everything is kind of expensive.
Room appointments, cleanliness, breakfast room very pleasant, drinks in the evening, pretty lobby, great location for our events. Needed more light in the room at times. It was hard to see where the hotel was, coming in from the highway because only one side was marked well.
The staff was incredibly friendly and the happy hour after a long ride on complimentary bikes was a nice way to end the day. I missed having a hot tub or sauna.
Very accommodating staff and clean design. Overall a great hotel for the price. no
