The lobby and breakfast room features terra cotta tiles, a gas fireplace and original paintings. Our pool and spa area is situated in the midst of one acre of lawn with large liquid amber oaks, magnolias, and orange trees. Complimentary continental breakfast provided. Join us at Rickeys Restaurant, serving old-fashioned American favorites that will provide guests the simple comforts of home. Lunch and Dinner daily. Saturday and Sunday brunch. Cuisine will focus on only the freshest ingredients from the tremendous bounty from small local growers. The menu will contain such classics as spit roasted meats, creamed corn, baked potatoes and fresh pies. The handsome interior combines elements of authentic American architecture with warm colors and a beautiful setting, to create the ultimate neighborhood spot. The location is accentuated by a view of the perfectly manicured pool, patio and grounds at Inn Marin. Details such as handcrafted mission style furniture, custom chandeliers and warm earth colors all contribute to the welcoming feel of the restaurant.

Good Value

We stayed here for a wedding in Sonoma. The location is good and it was a great value. We got a larger room, #142, with a living room and very large jacuzzi tub, I highly recommend getting the larger room!

awesome last minute place to stay

After driving all day and being exhausted, we found Inn Marin online and booked it since we were only a few miles away and way too tired to keep driving. The check in staff had our registration paperwork already printed out and room assignment so the check in literally took under 2 minutes and we were in bed in less then 10! The room was beautiful and the bed was incredibly comfortable making the end to an exhausting day almost heavenly.

Convenient hotel north of GG bridge

Originally didn't have same room location as my reservation but they corrected that. Nice music at dinner. Very useful Electric Vehicle charging.

Not great

First the good thing. They have a nice pool area, and lots of trees and greenery on the grounds for being right on the freeway your room has an empty mini fridge to put things in and I think there is a laundry facility you can pay to use if you need it....and then there is the not so good... The complimentary breakfast is odd and there is no staff there to answer any questions about anything. There are very little staff anywhere actually. We wanted a drink from the bar near the pool but there was nobody there to order one from? There is an overall feeling that the hotel is not that clean. Perhaps it is the humidity, the age of the place or the fact that it is pet friendly? I asked three times ( twice to housekeeper, once to front desk) for a an extra pillow and a set of towels to be brought to our room but they never came. The pillows are the size of a squished postage stamp and our room came with only three. Dogs were up bright and early at 6am barking away. Also odd is the bathroom. Very small, zero counter space, and the light is a motion sensor so if one of you gets up before the other, beware the very bright light coming from the bathroom which is enhanced by the bathroom skylight which floods your room with light at the crack of dawn if you accidentally leave your bathroom door open. Unless I had my dog with me I would not stay here again. If you have a pet with you it is worth the other not so great things about the place. Bring your own pillow!

a good place to sleep after a day at the beach

We stayed in room 139 and had an major issue with the internet. Wi-Fi is included with the room but because the room was on the far side of the wing, the signal was non existant. Sucks when you are trying to plan your outting or find a restaurant for dinner when you have to walk to the pool for a decent signal on your tablet. Maybe another wireless router is in order? The room was very clean and I loved the bamboo floors. I am definitely bringing my dog with me next time. The bed was pretty comfortable for me, I would have liked a bit more padding. It's also nice that there are two entraces to the room. Great for the middle of the night dog bathroom trip or a morning walk- The bike trail is just behind the dumpster but it is pretty noisy as it runs along the freeway. The only other issue was the cleaning staff forgot to stock cups for the coffee machine (a keurig) and tissue for the bathroom. The ice machine was also broken, but after a trip to the lobby, I was able to have the staff fill my ice bucket and grab coffee cups. I liked the hotel for the proximity to Larkspur and Petaluma and I am glad to have found an opening on such short notice for a holiday weekend. The only deterent was that the cost is too high for me to consider a second night or a return trip. Maybe if they drop the cost down $40 a night and did not charge $25 a night for my puppy I would return.

Not what I expected

Hotel is old with a restored appearance, and pictures online are overdone. Heater was falling off the wall and I had to call for service to get heat. No microwave. The least desirable was the entry to the rooms. Hotel looks fine from the front, but you enter on the back of the building and it doesn't look good back there, especially at night. Disappointing for the price. Lovely lobby and restaurant.

A definite keeper

1950s hotel redone with modern conveniences. Clean, quiet, a country atmosphere right off the busy 101 hwy. Our room had a back door that led to the garden and swimming pool. The staff was very pleasant. I loved the wood floor instead of gnarly carpet. A great change of pace from the sterile chain hotels. Will definitely stay there again.

Great Home Base for Sonoma and San Francisco

We were looking for an affordable, clean location between Sonoma and San Francisco. This ended up being a great choice. It was well-maintained and moderately priced for the area. It was easy to get to and parking was free. The rooms were slightly small, especially the bathrooms, but we hardly spent any time in the room. We also didn't have time to use many of amenities. The free continental breakfast, while small, was a nice touch. Overall, a pleasant stay. I would return again.

Great place!

This is a fantastic little nest, a little older, but very clean and it is in a garden-like setting. We enjoyed our wonderful dinner at Ricky's, which is located inside the hotel and sat poolside, so refreshing, great service
