No elevator, so had to lug all our stuff up to 2nd floor. No microwave in our room. Breakfast is standard frozen or powdered eggs etc. Back parking lot was flooded first night, unwalkable. Location is good for SF visit.

We stayed one night and at first our room had a bad odor. It was continuous through the building our room was in. Fortunately we said something and got moved to a different building which ended up being just fine! The front desk lady was super helpful which made the experience more pleasant.

We stayed here in order to spend the day in Sausalito and then drive the next morning to Sonoma. The room and bed was comfortable. I liked that there was a massage therapist from a local spa giving complimentary chair massages. This was a convenient location and the ride to the Sonoma Raceway was easy. Would stay there again.
