I was going to be in SF for several days. Big conference in town, hotel rates double and triple. I needed something affordable in Marin. Tamalpais Motel fit the bill. I saw all the recent 4 and 5 star ratings. Thought they might have upgraded their rooms (words like “cozy” and “nice”). Nope. Room was extremely hot. Even with fan at full blast. Only 70 degrees outside but felt like 90 inside. Sun hits it all afternoon. Furniture from nearest swap meet or Goodwill. Vinyl floor filthy and sticky - my feet were blackened. I wiped floor with some alcohol wipes I had, marginally better but still revolting. Had my own sheet, pillow, blanket and towel. Only way I felt comfortable. Wifi intermittent, weak and extremely poor. Little slivers of soap and tiny packets of shampoo. No kleenex. TV was ok. Had a small fridge and microwave. Only reason to stay is if you’re too tired to drive or desperate. Or have the DT’s. Travelodge across the highway would have been better choice (they seem to have actually upgraded). Sorry. This place is the opposite of cozy. Yikes.…
What a quaint and cozy place to stay. We mentioned that we felt like we were staying in the Cone Motel from the Car's Movie. We have stayed here several times and the rooms are clean, quiet and so convenient to several different beaches and San Francisco, without the high price. The Staff is always pleasant and very accommodating. We love the easy on/easy off exit to the freeways and within walking distance to some fun shops and restaurants. We definitely will stay here again. We travel with my mom and the privacy/semi privacy of the 2nd bed was awesome. We were not expecting too much for the price we paid, but we were pleasantly surprised and it by far exceeded our expectations, we booked it again. Can't wait to go back a 3rd time soon.
My room was very comfortable, and the staff was friendly and helpful. When I checked in, the first room I was assigned had no hangars or hooks to hang clothes, but the motel immediately changed my room to one that did have hangars.
The Tamalpais was a clean and quiet hotel that accommodated our family of 5. The rooms had 3 queen beds and everyone was comfortable. This is a convenient location to SF just right over the bridge. You will not find a more affordable, safe, and spacious motel in SF. I hight suggest staying here and driving into the city.
The Tamalpais Motel in Mill Valley, California was a great place to stay while my family and I were in the San Francisco area. The owners were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable Nd the Motel was located in a great place for all the sites un the area. Room rated were very reasonable as well. I will stay here again
Clean, bright room with lots of windows to let in light(window shades for each also). Really nice staff! Well maintained property. The only downside was the road noise but we brought ear plugs luckily so we slept great! 100% recommend.
We really enjoyed our stay -- the room was very clean and comfortable and it was close to everything we were doing! The front desk staff were absolutely lovely as well. Would definitely stay here again the next time we are up in the Bay Area.
Our room at the Tamalpais Motel was absolutely immaculate. The towels were fluffy and clean, the beds so comfortable. The location was perfect for our adventure into Tiburon. Parking was free and easy.
I was very pleased with my stay here. The checkin process was quick and easy, all of the staff were very kind, and the room was very clean and spacious. On top of everything, I never felt that I was unsafe. Not to mention how close you are to so many things! The Richardson Bay Audubon Center is just a 5 minute drive away! I would definitely recommend staying here! And I would definitely stay here again.
Aside from being nostalgically charming this motel was very cozy, clean & dry. The location of the motel in proximity to all of the natural attractions is perfect and really added to the great memories I made while visiting.
