      • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

      Hard to review this property... It's a bare bones motel right off a busy freeway with all the noise traffic that implies. And it's very expensive for what it is, but it's the cheapest option around when you fly in late and only have a few hours to get some sleep and then get back on the road. Room badly needs updating, but the bed is comfortable. Bathroom is tiny with zero counter space, but it was clean. Would I stay here for more than a short night - no. Would I stay here again when I only had 6 hours to sleep and shower - probably.

      • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

      Right on the freeway. Old and worn everything. Dingy, smelly with air fresheners used to mask the old worn out carpet, bedding, etc.

      • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

      Close to Sausalito. No AC and not noted in Expedia's listing. No screen in windows, kind of important with no ac, fan on wall. Carpet filthy. Old building and interior not very well maintained. Way over priced.

      Much to be desired

      This motel is old and leaves a lot to be desired. The access and parking is very poor, tight parking, shrubs need trimmed so hard to see getting out to a busy street. Near the freeway too, so lots of road noise. No air conditioning so windows had to be opened for fresh air, but noisy. The wi-fi services was very spotty, not dependable. I had to walk out to the street to the office for coffee in the morning - only available from 7:30 to 9:30. The only good thing was clean towels and sheets, room pretty clean. I won't stay here again!
