4/10 Fair

Few disappointed in our stay at Marin hotel. There was no parking on-site. You must park at nearest city parking location and walk to hotel. This wouldn’t be bad except there isn’t a place to drop luggage before parking. Once in the unit AC was not working (they promptly corrected). The shower had mold/mildew on walls. We advised the staff and they sent someone to clean the next morning. Next shower it was back. Gave up on having this corrected. Staff was very nice in saying they would send someone to re-clean, unfortunately I think the exhaust fan was not operational in the bathroom. After booking this room in February, I read this same issue happened in other rooms.

For calling this a boutique hotel, the bathroom was very dated and in need of severe remodeling. I didn't even use it. There was mold in the shower/tub. Too expensive.

4/10 Fair

This place was worse than a Motel 6 in the US. There was black mold in the shower, and the lighting in the room was dim like in a horror movie. You could also hear people talking in the hallways and going in and out of their rooms. I wouldn’t stay here again.

Staff was very helpful, both at front desk and at breakfast. Location was good for us - close to shopping and to the ferries. Only downside is that the rooms are very small. family room had 3 beds and very little floor space.
