    « Thanksgiving stay »

    We have Rapid Rewards & have stayed in many Best Western Motels. We were in San Rafael for a Thanksgiving celebration with a large family & choose this motel for it's location. It was a bad choice due to a very poor mattress & inferior bedding - way past it's use. Also the room had lingering smoke in it.

    « Relax at hotel or explore »

    I wanted a place for a base camp to explore the Marin Headlands and also a place to relax where we (me and 2 kids) wouldn't go stir crazy. This place was awesome! Very close to the city as well as Golden Gate Rec Area. Quick trip to Marin Headlands, Muir Woods, Marine Mammal Center, Sausalito, etc. Lots to do at the hotel - awesome heated pool, 2 hot tubs, basketball, putting green, ping pong, shuffle board - we did it all. Great breakfast in the morning - eggs, waffles, sausage, oatmeal, pastries, etc. Very helpful and courteous staff. Also bonus, there is a large 1 screen movie theater right next door. The property is a bit older but the room was comfortable, clean and decorated nicely. Beds were super comfortable. Our room had a shower stall only which was fine and water pressure was great. Also I felt like it was a good value.

    « Business in Corte Madera »

    The area of the hotel felt safe and well lit. The rooms were comfortable and easy access to grocery store, highway and restaurants. Hotel is older but grounds were clean and staff were nice and helpful.

    « Just fine »

    We stayed in this hotel for my husband's high school reunion. Wanted a place that was within distance of various meeting places in the area. Nora checked us in and when we asked for a room away from the noise of the freeway she upgraded us and we were very pleased about it. Room was fine, we slept well. Breakfast is hearty but don't get there late because they run out of things like scrambled eggs and french toast. But lots of other good items are available. All in all, it was a great stay except for the HORRIBLE storm and rain and wind!!

    « Avoid staying here if you can - stay in some other location in the general area »

    This is one of the worst BW hotels we have ever stayed in - has a '60's look to it - but don't be fooled - it is time to demolish and build anew here - lots of acreage - could be a great location if the building was up to date - rooms are small - very poorly furnished and literally no vanity space - having both a front and and a back entrance does not help - breakfast was OK - but would never want to visit here again - we visited Northern California and stayed at several other BW hotels, all of which were excellent to very good - this was one of the more pricier hotels of the BW hotels we stayed in and certainly a poor value -

    « Needs update. »

    Good location however being near freeway makes it noisy. Ridiculous breakfast room with insufficient seating. Mediocre food. My room had a distinct mildew smell in the bathroom. Cheap toilet paper. Stupid WiFi which needs to be logged into every time. Inaccurate thermostat on climate control. Comfortable beds. Low sinks in the bathroom. Oh my back! Hotel needs some serious refurbishing. Other then that I can't complain. After all it is Marin County!

    « Excellent location, clean and friendly staff »

    The location of this Inn was excellent for our traveling purpose. Easy access to the freeway and shopping nearby. Clean, comfortable room and staff was very friendly. Buffet breakfast was tasty. Pool looked very inviting, but it was raining!

    « convenient location »

    This Best Western is located next to the freeway and across the street from a shopping center. We ate at Pacific Catch , an Asian fusion restaurant at the shopping center. it was really good. This Best Western is only average. The breakfast is average. They serve it in the lobby and there are not enough tables, however. There are no inside hallways, so this establishment has a "motel' feel to it. There a salt water pool, a fire pit, picnic tables, putting green and a park-like area. The room decor is dated, but ok. Everything was clean, except for our carpet, which needed a good shampooing. Overall, this Best Western is OK, average,

    « Quaint Lodging Off Of The 101 and Near The Ferry »

    This is sort of a mini-resort with a lap pool. putting green, barbecue area and an interior garden supporting room patios on the lower level. The rooms are nice, the beds quite comfortable. My room had an extra sink as well as a small fridge. There's some vending by the pool office but there's a rather upscale strip mall just across the road which includes a Safeway grocer. And just across the 101 you'll find a larger anchor store type mall. Breakfast is free and the Chronicle newspaper is provided. Wi-Fi works OK. and there are a couple of lobby computers for quicker speeds and printing if necessary. Several times when I returned late afternoon, fresh cookies were available at the reception. You can get here directly from the SFO by Marin Airporter or just take the Larkspur Ferry from the San Francisco terminal. Either way, contact the hotel at the drop off because you'll be up the road a bit and the other side of the 101. Highway planners make it difficult to walk anywhere around here with ease.

    « Very Nice! »

    This is one of my favorite Best Western Hotels so far. It's to bad we only stayed for a night. The compound has an outdoor pool, garden and if I remember right, there's an where you could have a bonfire. There's also a restaurant where they serve the complimentary breakfast. The staff were very accommodating too! We had a very nice stay.

    « Great Room at a Good Price »

    Had a great experience. Lovely clean spacious room, comfy beds, nice amenities. Easy to find, right near freeway, very pleasant stay! Warm salt water pool, Jacuzzi, complimentary breakfast. Staff was courteous, friendly, and very helpful. Plenty of parking, so did not have to park far from room.

    « Overnight Front Desk Representative »

    He repeatedly cursed at my son and his friends, was rude and very condescending. He yelled at the boys and at me. The lady at check out was very pleasant and kind. Pool lights turned off before they were scheduled to.

    « Only if you are desperate »

    This is a sad Best Western. They have tried to update this place but they just need to tear it down and start all over. The room smells VERY musty, the shower area was gross because of its age, the noise from the freeway makes it hard to sleep and I am always uncomfortable staying in a hotel where your door opens up to an outdoor walkway. There is really nothing good I can say about this place except the people that work there are very nice.

    « Passing through »

    Each year my wife and myself drive from BC to Southern California. We often will take a different route just to "change it up". Which ever route we decide to take we usually try to stay in a Best Western property. This hotel was the same high quality we are used to. Well done BW Corte Madera.

    « Great Stay »

    Loved this place. It is slightly dated but we loved our patio courtyard room. The pool is fantastic. We were there for a wedding in Sausalito and this was a great location. The staff were also very helpful in arranging our rooms.

    « Our 6th stay at this hotel »

    Good location, easy freeway access, great shopping right across the street. Always clean, comfortable rooms, now they have added a nice breakfast buffet. Since this trip was for our 50th anniversary, we splurged on a suite--loved the featherbed! Friendly staff, quiet location--we never consider any other hotel when we go to Marin County!

    « Gem »

    I stayed here while on business in September of 2016. Hotel staff are very pleasant. Room was clean. Breakfast was awesome. Great pool (saltwater). Will come back and stay again for pleasure this time.


    We have been guests here for over 20 years, some years as many as three times, and the level of service has been maintained; the breakfasts are still very good even though Best Western has insisted on HOT breakfasts which precluded the delivery of the breakfast to the rooms. The furniture and linens have been replaced over the years as has the paint. AND the beautiful grounds with pathways, croquet, and a firepit which is lit in winter only add to the beauty of the very old and beautiful trees.

    « "Better Than Expected" »

    When our friends told us they had booked all of our rooms at this Best Western for this night, I was apprehensive as it had been a long time since staying at a Best Western. Upon arrival, the property looked older and I was afraid the rooms would be dated and musty. To my surprise, the rooms were renovated and very nice. The beds were very comfortable and all was clean. The TV's were not HD though and very hard to watch with the old style fuzzy reception. We had decided to go elsewhere for breakfast and the staff was very nice to pack us each a to go bag with bottled water, fruit and a granola bar for later. For the rates charged I do feel they need to fix their TV's, but besides that, this is a nice place to stay and I would stay again!

    « Unique Attractive Property »

    Best Western Corte Madera Inn is unique for three reasons: (1) its extensive grounds, which include several recreational options and pleasant garden areas for just relaxing; (2) its particularly pleasant and attentive staff members; (3) its great location: though it is immediately adjacent to highway 101 the hotel was quiet; it's also right across the street from a lovely shopping center with excellent and pleasant dining options. The facility is older but is in good shape and very comfortable. The very large pool is heated, which is not always the case in hotel swimming pools and is in a garden setting. There is basketball, shuffleboard, table tennis, and a fitness room. Every member of the hotel staff was genuinely friendly and pleasant. Our stay was a very enjoyable experience.

    « Classic Best Western, Older and Nice. »

    I like the place- nice decks overlooking a central grassy courtyard/pool area, with a lot of space. I don't mind the doors to outside- the climate is pretty nice. The bed in my room was very comfortable, and it seemed things had been renovated in some kind of recent past. Really convenient for access to 101- the on ramp is just immediately left out the front. Good restaurants in a nice smaller shopping center with a grocery store across the street. A great place for access to the north bay area. I'll stay again.

    « Close enough to San Francisco »

    Grounds look nice, great pool, good location, shuttle to the ferry to San Francisco. Accommodations though are a different story. The property is in dire need of renovation. Our mattress cover was extremely lumpy, the foot of the bed was on an incline and didn't want to bother finding out why. The carpet on the stairs to the second level is disgusting. The staff at the Front Desk was OK but definitely not forward with offering help or information.

    « Very nice place to stay. »

    This is the only place we stay when going to the bay area.. It's right off the freeway and there are lots of shopping and restaurants nearby..The staff is great, the rooms are nice and the bed was really comfortable...

    « Great Place to stay for a weekend away »

    My daughter and I drove up here to have a quick weekend away to a place we had not been and also to have some fun. The hotel is very close to restaurants and there are a few really nice drives to small bay area parks. The hotel is very comfortable and the staff are great at making recommendations and making a guest feel welcome.

    « great location, quiet , nice feel, very nice & helpful front desk people »

    This is my second visit & I think great location ,only about 12 minutes north of Golden gate bridge & San Fran . Hotel is fairly quiet . has good home feel to it. front desk people very friendly & helpful . & very,very close to great restaurants & shopping. I will be back again.

    « sports competition »

    beds where comfortable and breakfast selection was pretty good! Love the waffle maker and always love my oatmeal. We checked in late so unfortunately we did not use the amenities. The swimming pool and Jacuzzi looks so inviting though. Hopefully our next visit we will get the chance to jump in.

    « Old hotel with unpleasant smell in rooms, nice pool and staff »

    This is an older hotel. The rooms varied a bit..I looked at a few. They all smelled weird - like bad body odor. I stayed in an executive king which was okay decor-wise and functionally. The pool is fantastic (a key reason I chose this hotel) and the staff were pleasant and nice.

    « The basics done well »

    This is your basic clean hotel. This is an older property, but has been maintained very well. The staff was very nice. The breakfast was decent. I would stay here again as the location was great (middle of Marin) and the price was very reasonable.

    « Two thumbs up »

    Lovely place to stay, serving a good breakfast and the Olympic size, heated ,salt water pool and grounds are very nice. (tip: request a room in the rear where it's quite) Good location for visiting Muir woods, San Fran, etc.

    « Escape to Corte Madera »

    This is a lovely, expansive property near shopping in Corte Madera. The gorgeous California weather beckons us outside to enjoy the huge pool, ping pong, basketball or even bird watching on the property. The location is close to Sausalito and the Larkspur ferry into San Francisco, and Mt. Tamalpais hiking. Napa and Sonoma are also within an hour's drive.

    « When was the last time you saw a shuffle board court at your hotel? »

    This is my FAVORITE type of a Best Western. A well maintained older property built when no 2 B/W's were alike. (Caveat, older properties usually mean smaller rooms).The property has an on site eatery,( currently only used for breakfast but going thru the permitting process to return as a restaurant/bar),a swimming pool large enough to serve as the local swim club,2 hot tubs (though 1 is not beside the pool), basketball hoop, putting green, and a shuffle board court, (the ONLY one I remember outside of Fla). Most (but not all) rooms have a separate balcony or back porch. FOOD? Across Madera Blvd is a small mall with 5 (current) eateries and a Safeway Mkt. Across US101 is another mall with 4 eateries , and 1/2 mi from that is a Nugget Mkt (with FRESH take out food)! The onsite/free breakfast is as good as any in this price range. The ONLY down side to ME is the TV channel choices. The hotel subscribes to a service with for fee movies which apparently uses the tactic of less free channel choice to induce sales ( but with the onsite recreation choices who needs TV)?

    « Lovely hotel and reasonably priced »

    We stayed here for a family visit and we're very impressed with the friendliness of the staff, cleanliness of the room, and most especially the swimming pool area. Our room had a back door leading on to a little patio with wicker furniture and a hanging basket. The whole area was planted with flowers, there was a small putting green and the pool was pristine. We sat outside with our morning coffee and wished we had a few more days here. We definitely plan to return, and at under $200 a night we can certainly afford to.

    « Our stay was a pleasure! »

    We loved the grounds with mature trees and green lawn, plus saltwater pool, hoops area, putting green, BBQ area, etc. - all viewed from our upstairs room with a deep, covered porch. It just felt like a lovely home away from home, with a yummy, healthy (and complimentary) breakfast served each morning. Daily fresh towels. We chose this hotel for proximity to our adult kids' homes as well as price. So glad we found this place!

    « Perfect family experience »

    If it was just about the room, this Inn would have been sufficient and well positioned for day trips to both San Francisco, Muir Woods, and north to wine country. But there was also the small putting green, basketball court, an expansive pool, TWO hot tub spas, a fire pit on the poolside patio at night, and a full breakfast on the property, which literally made it hard to leave every morning for sightseeing and tourist activities. Also, reception, service, and maid staffs were efficient and friendly. Actually cancelled a reservation at another location to return to this Inn for the last night of our vacation, if that says anything.

    « The ONLY good thing about this hotel is the breakfast. »

    The rooms are unbelievably TINY!!! Forget about two people in the bathroom at the same time. If I had to estimate the size of the room, I'd say it was 12x14 TOPS. Never again. The location of the property was right off the interstate, which made it convenient. Breakfast was very good also. The staff was very friendly, but our experience with the room completely muddied all of the good things.

    « Clean-Less Expensive-Reasonably Close to SF »

    My family stayed two nights while visiting San Francisco. The pluses: Above average breakfast, reasonably short drive across the Golden Gate Bridge (We took the fairy - fun!!), well tended grounds, nice pool area, and nice lobby. We had a family suite with a king in one room and two queens in another, which was perfect. It is also WAY less expensive than staying closer to town. Minuses: The rooms are a bit older, the hotel itself is feeling some age. Our mattress was very uncomfortable and needed to be replaced. It isn't a scenic area, basically in a mall. A decent value for the money.

    « The lap pool was very good. »

    This hotel was clean and the landscaping was nice. The location was near the freeway which was convenient. Our room was a bit old but the bed was comfy. The large lap pool was great! Overall though I felt it overpriced for what we received.

    « Good price for an expensive area »

    The hotel is in a good location. The property is safe. It is conveniently located next to a large mall with many good dining options. The rooms are clean. The breakfast is the best free hotel breakfast I have seen. There are many extra amenities the hotel offers ( pool, hot tub, mini golf putting, table tennis, outdoor fire pit). The price is high, but competitive for the area.

    « Rund down property with poor service »

    The property is run down in general. Outside benches too dirty to sit outside. When I walked around on the carpet in my bedroom for 15 minutes before bed, the bottom of my feet were black with dirt. Had to wash them to get in to the bed. Wi-Fi not working and in spite of multiple complaints from multiple guests they just kept insisting it was everyone's computers. I finally called the internet provider myself and they reset the system for the entire property so that we had internet access the last two days of stay. Front desk staff would smile politely at any conversation, tell you they would talk to the manager when they returned (evidently there is rarely a manager actually present) but not one time in three promises was I ever called back. The included breakfast is what you would expect in a $79 per night motel. They charge $200 + per night for this very poor hotel.

    « Fine hotel in a fabulous location »

    My wife and I very much enjoyed our time in the Corte Madera area. Each morning we took advantage of the fabulous 25 yard pool followed by a good quality, self-serve breakfast. A great start to the day followed by a day of hiking on Mount Tamalpais or trips to the National Seashore reserve at Point Reyes. We were in paradise for the entire holiday.

  • 1
    « Not worth the cost! »

    This hotel would have been acceptable at a rate under $100 but for the price I paid it was terrible. Wi-Fi not usable for most of stay (3 nights) causing me to lose work time. Room outdated furniture, no office chair and dirty,worn carpet. Hooks in bathroom were too high to reach, towels up too high. Fan in bathroom drowned out tv.

    « Going Away? »

    The location was great, just off the freeway entrance. It is within walking distance of the mall to the south hosting Barnes and Noble and several good restaurants. The rooms were quiet and comfortable. The bathroom was clean and reasonably new. The TV in-room was a little small and far away from the bed, but we didn't come for television. The pool looked nice but it was cool. Breakfast that came as a part of the room price was good and was a good addition.

    « Would not recommend. »

    Check-in was at 4 pm; my family and I arrived at 3 and were told our room wasn't ready and to come back at 4. Fair enough, as we arrived early. We came back a little after 4 and were told our room still wasn't ready and to check back 10 min later. 10 min later and it still wasn't ready. We were told "10 minutes" repeatedly. I spoke with the Service Manager and apparently she needs training in customer service, as she could have cared less. The front desk receptionist was nice enough, but obviously had no control over the situation. While i was at the front desk, another guest tried to check in and was told their room wasn't ready, either. This was around 4:30 pm, well after check-in. We were finally able to go to our room around 5 pm. I might have been more understanding about the delay, had the staff cared more and at least offered an apology. But they obviously didn't care- I would never stay here again based off their attitudes. Very poor customer service!!

    « Great for family and kids »

    Even though we're an older couple, we liked the community feel of families with kids of different ages, and the space to engage in different activities, like small range putting, basketball, ping pong, pool, jacuzzi, fitness room. Peaceful cabana atmosphere. We really like this place, but it is a bit pricey and crowded on summer weekends.

    « Ladies retreat »

    Our group of ladies enjoyed the stay, hotel try to accomedate much to our needs as far as opening the middle door to be accessible for two room and an extra pull out bed. Breakfast was awesome with the hot scramble eggs, sausage and toast, etc.

    « Excellent North Bay Location/Value »

    This is an older but well maintained property. It is minutes from San Francisco, Golden Gate Bridge, Pt Reyes, Mt Tam, Ferrys etc without the hassle of parking etc. in the City. The salt water pool is fabulous for playing or lap swimming (hot tubs could use upgrading, though they did work and were Hot!). Basketball hoop was also a nice diversion. Breakfast was usual basic BW fair but used an entire restaurant facility next to hotel so wasn't crowded like most experiences. Grounds have a resort like feel. Shopping mall with dining options right across the street. This is a popular location and we will definitely book again.

    « Sprawling Complex; No Complaints »

    The hotel consists of multiple two-story buildings and a breakfast building which used to be a stand alone restaurant. If you are southbound on 101, the exit literally puts you at the hotel's front door. The large pool, shuffleboard, fitness room, putting green and available gas grill make this dated property seem like a resort! The rooms and service and continental breakfast were up to par. Note: The guest laundry is only open 9 to 9 . (I know there are other travelers like us who usually plan on doing laundry late at night or early in the morning.) We would stay again.

    « Insects »

    Check bed for insects, I had a wierd bug on my sheets, I had to kill it myself. The room size was very nice, other friends that were part of my group had smaller rooms. One of my friends showed up and got to his room and it was not cleaned yet (430 PM) but he was given another room, had to move luggage twice. The windows in my room were open when I arrived and I had a hard time securing the lock. There are lots of good restaurants near by, I went to Marin Joe's which is a local favorite. The is a good mall near by. We were asked to leave the dining room so they could close it while we were having our morning coffee.

    « Worth every penny!!! »

    Spacious clean room with desk, sofa, chair, flat screen, granite, fridge and we asked for a microwave and they delivered to the room within 10 minutes. The breakfast included everything! They even have a full restaurant to sit in and enjoy your bountiful breakfast! Actually, this place served everything....eggs, meats, waffles, bagels, assorted sweet rolls, oatmeal with granola, dried fruit & nuts, cereals, toast, fresh fruit, yogurt and many assorted drinks. Amazing $15 per person breakfast for FREE!

    « Cute and affordable »

    I did not have reservations at this hotel but saw it off the highway and decided to stop and see if they had any rooms available AND if I could afford it. Yes and Yes. I was totally surprised at all the amenities they had. An Olympic size - HEATED outdoor swimming pool, several hot tubs, basketball, ping pong, shuffle board not to mention the room was wonderful. I heard they are going to tear it down and build something else. That would be a tragedy. This place is a one of a kind.

    « Unsatisfactory Customer Care »

    My husband spent two nights here to attend a wedding. Never again. The rooms were nice enough, if you can sleep through the noisy air conditioning unit. I called to see if we could possibly check in earlier. The woman said they could have a second floor room ready and I asked about an elevator. We were told there is an elevator, but when we arrived less than two hours later were told there is no elevator because "this is an old property." So okay, we opt to come back in another hour for a room on the first floor. Walking into the room I tripped on the higher than normal step onto the porch. I banged up my shins and knees pretty badly and almost hit my head on the wall. I called the front desk and asked if they might have ice packs or maybe some bags for ice. The man at the front desk told me where the ice machines are. That was his response - where to find the ice machines. Checking out, one of the women at the desk had accidentally dialed 911 and both of them were trying to stop whatever was going on with the phones and call off the police. Not impressed with this hotel at all. It is in a great location and that must be the selling point.

    « Very pleased with this hotel »

    My family and I spent four nights at this hotel. Even though this is an older hotel, the room was clean and very comfortable and the continental breakfast was good - included pastries, bagels, muffins, sliced bread, oatmeal, cereal, eggs, waffles, sausage, bacon every other day, and french toast every other day. The staff was always helpful and pleasant. Two things I really enjoyed about this establishment. The grounds around the large pool were very relaxing. Activities besides swimming included ping pong, shuffle board, putting area and a basketball goal(does need a new rim). BBQ gas grill available to the guest. Location - close to Muir woods and Muir beach, not too far from Stinson beach, and a quick drive to the Larkspur ferry which we used to go into the city. Much more relaxing and affordable than staying in San Fran. Even with the ferry cost for a family of four, it was still less expensive than staying in the city. Much more peaceful of a setting compared to staying in San Fran. Grocery store and restaurants within walking distance. I heard there the hotel is looking at making some major changes to the property. I hope the owners do not lose the charm of their lovely pool area. This truly makes the property. Again, I highly recommend this hotel!

    « Loved it »

    Super pleased with the cleanliness, the look and feel the Comfort level and the staff was awesome great pricing awesome food at their morning Buffet we were overwhelmed and how great it was. It was just overall great

    « Wonderful »

    The Best Western Corte Madera is and has been a wonderful property to stay. It is near many restaurants and shopping opportunities, as well as being centrally located in the lower Napa/Sonoma area. Staff is extremely conscious of guest needs, and the accommodations are always spotless. This was not the first nor the last time I will visit this property.

    « Great location for a lovely hotel »

    We stayed for 3 nights and totally enjoyed it. The breaky was nice, the shops were close, the free shuttle was very handy and the pool was great. Fantastic location as a great shopping centre/restaurants were within walking distance.

    « Nice hotel. good breakfast »

    the breakfast offered was nice at this hotel. Pool was very large and warmed. Two hottubs were great. Other amenities like ping pong table and basketball hoop and putting green made it try to be a resort. But really just a nice hotel. It is old, but they are trying to keep it up.

    « Clean comfortable rooms, excellent service »

    We stayed here for a weekend and found it very comfortable. Spacious well groomed gardens with handing baskets, a nice pool, and outdoor activities. While we were there the inn was completely full, yet the staff was courteous and prompt. We needed housekeeping for a couple things and they were right on it. The breakfast was good with a lot of menu choices. I would have preferred a coffee mug instead of paper cups, but that's a minor issue. All in all, a good motel, especially for families.

    « Our favorite hotel »

    This is a beautiful location. They have awesome entertainment for children. A large pool, shuffleboard, table tennis, a putting green, bar-b-q, hot tub, and fire pit were among our favorite features. This was a very family oriented location and our grandchildren loved it. Our room had a porch that overlooked the park like interior courtyard.

    « Hidden gem »

    Easy check-in process, helpful staff. We had 3 kids with us so stayed in the family suite--1 room with a king, a separate bedroom with 2 queens (or doubles?). Our suite was quiet, comfortable. Kids loved the big pool, one of the biggest I've seen at a chain hotel. 2 hot tubs! Ping pong! Great to unwind after a day in the car. Easy access to Muir Woods (about 25 mins but go very early due to NO parking!). Hotel breakfast was in a weird old western-style restaurant, typical buffet.

    « Great family resort style motel »

    Older resort style motel, Good condition, great pool, extremely friendly staff, great service. Good central location in SF Bay area near ferry restaurants, Muir woods and wine country. Convenient for to making day trips

    « Easy to get to, convenient ammenities »

    We stay here when in town to visit family. The motel is conveniently located, easy to get to and has a restaurant on site, pool, etc. It's also very close to a mall if you need anything. The staff has always been helpful when we've stayed. It can sometimes be a little higher priced than others nearby, but there are others that are more expensive and this is a good price for what you get.

    « What One Would Expect »

    A very average Best Western with a room that was nothing special. There was a very attractive swimming pool on the property that we never used. The Best Western serves its purpose by providing a place to sleep, but I think that I would like to try a different place when we return to the area.

    « Nice place to stay near Muir Woods »

    Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was generous and in an old restaurant stop there was plenty of seating.It had a great pool and grounds! Seems like a throw-back to older, family retreats but right near shopping and the highway.

    « Need improvements »

    Just average experience and I was expecting a nice breakfast best on prior reviews but the breakfast was disappointed in the way it was serve with paper plates and in a empty old restaurant that had dirty old paint. I did not like the coffee dishes place on the bathroom sink. If they improved, I may come back otherwise I will not.

    « Nice Hotel »

    I would definitely stay at this hotel again. The rooms were very clean. The staff was absolutely wonderful and helpful. I loved the pool and hot tubs. My son could shoot hoops, play shuffle board and even do some golf putting. I will definitely be recommending this hotel to the people that do not like to stay directly in San Francisco

    « Wonderful stay »

    Friendly staff, roomy rooms and comfortable beds. Wish we could have taken advantage of the salt water pool. Great location with some excellent eating options nearby. Looks like a great place to spent a couple days and would be terrific place to bike from.

    « Very relaxing abode »

    The Corte Madera Best Western is awesome! It was a little out of our way, so I had to talk my husband into staying here, but it was so awesome we may stay there again. The pool area is the best we've ever seen, with lap lanes and a large hot tub. The ground floor rooms around the courtyard have relaxing chairs outside, and we enjoyed letting our 2-year-old run around in the courtyard freely without worrying about cars. She was able to ride her tricycle there, and we also were able to use the barbecue grill, which was very convenient.

    « Nice & convenient »

    Few hotels in Corte Madera. This property is located adjacent to a town center/shopping mall offering numerous quality restaurants and adjacent to US101. I've been staying here for over 15 years while visiting family..

    « San Francisco Vacation »

    A great location for visiting Napa, Muir Woods, Saulsalito, Point Reyes. Easy access to the highway and plenty of eating establishments within walking distance. Also offers a free shuttle to the Larkspur ferry for a bay ride to San Francisco!

    « Comfortable Hotel right of 101 South »

    This is a typical Best Western, nice rooms, decent continental breakfast and friendly helpful staff. I probably need not say more but its location is worth comment. It is right by US101 about 10 miles north of the Golden Gate but I was not aware of the traffic in my room. It was an ideal location for an evening trip down to Marin Headlands to view San Francisco at sunset, which was part of my plan. It is also good value for this area.

    « Older, Nice and close to San Francisco »

    We needed to be close to San Francisco without breaking the bank and we chose this Best Western hotel. It is an older hotel but well kept. We had a 2nd floor room with a balcony overlooking the pool and it was just dandy. We were welcomed with chocolate in the room which is a nice European touch. Breakfast was good as was the bed. An extra perk came from the front desk when I was asked if I was driving a rental car. Seems that there are no longer tool booths on the Golden Gate Brisge and you are charged by a photo on the license plate. If it is a rental car, the fee is jacked up by the rental car agency so she suggested i go online in the Business Center of the hotel and prepay the toll. saved me a bunch!!!

    « Beautiful Pool »

    Very nice hotel with a large pool and recreation area in the heart of Corte Madera. The location is directly across the street from the shopping center, and next to the 101 fwy. Overall, great stay, but would say rooms are a little overpriced for the property type. Would definitely stay here again.

    « Hotel close to Muir woods »

    We stayed here the night before a trip to Muir woods. The room was very nice and in a very quit location. They have an excellent buffet breakfast that is included in the price. We would definitely stay here again.

    « We will return »

    Nice settling. Professional, courteous staff members. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Nicely appointed with nice little extras such as a Kuerig coffeemaker and half and half in your room (instead of powdered creamer) and chocolates next to the bed. The grounds are well kept and have basketball, putting green, shuffle board, fire pit, a huge swimming pool and nice hot tub. Breakfast was good both mornings and included scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, french toast, oatmeal, fresh fruit and an assortment of pastries, Gavalia coffee with an assortment of flavored creamers. Staff kept food fresh and full. The property is well lit in the evening and there are choices of good places to eat within a short walk. They also offer complimentary shuttle service which we took to the Ferry.terminal. Driver was very nice and punctual picking us up on our return trip. Overall, a very enjoyable stay.

    « Nice Hotel »

    This is a very nice hotel. Very close to the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco. It's actually very centrally located if you are going to San Francisco and the surrounding vacation spots. If you are going to UCSF it is about 20 minutes from the Parnassus Campus.

    « breakfast »

    expensive given there isn't any turn down service or anything out of ordinary offered. Breakfast served on paper plates buffet style from a really worn our restaurant an it couldn't be called gourmet unless one had no experience of he world -bit of a wake up call required

    « Perfect Stay in Corte Madera »

    I was very pleased with my stay at this Hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Grounds were well kept and room was clean and warm. Room had a balcony overlooking the pool but was quiet. A unique mall is a walk across the street with excellent restaurants. When I was there there was a local farmer's market. I will stay again. Only tiny complaint was the heavy perfumed smell in the room.

    « Great stay & location »

    I have been to this motel several times and it is consistently good. Right off of Highway 101 in Central Marin. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Price is high but probably market rate for this area. Staff is friendly and service is very good.

    « Excellent Location »

    Great place to stay while visiting Marin county which has so much to see. Good people, good accommodations, and a great breakfast. Rooms were comfortable and quiet. The restaurants within walking distance were excellent.

    « Great place, very reminiscent of a 60's resort! »

    Large property, with nice rooms! Huge heated salt water pool, several Jacuzzi. The Staff is really nice, and the property is really clean! There is really nice shopping mall across the street with lots of places to eat, and shop.

    « Pool party »

    This place reminds me of a time people would be socializing outside together, and not focus on material things. People are by the pool smiling and sunbathing or exercising. I think this is what really makes this location relaxing. A community vibe and enjoying the great outdoors.

    « Very good value and convenient to points of interest »

    This was a great pick for our family trip; it was conveniently located near the highway (but no highway noise!) so we could travel easily to San Francisco and other interest points in the Bay Area. The hotel is located near an open shopping area with several good dining options and major retail stores within an easy walk from the hotel. Hotel amenities were great for family entertainment (putt-putt golf, saltwater pool). Breakfast offered a consistently tasty variety of food selections.

    « So pleased »

    Second time at this motel and we're sure to return again! Enjoy ambling along the gardens and relaxing by the wonderful pool. Rooms large, clean, comfortable and light. Especially prefer the upstairs rooms with high ceilings. The establishment has a authentic retro feel about it that captures your attention in a positive way. Staff very accommodating to our room needs; we really appreciated their service and kindness. Breakfast , although typical buffet, is made more enjoyable in the location of the former restaurant.

    « BestWestern Corte Madera »

    This hotel met our needs perfectly in terms of location, convenience and price. We were in the area for a family function so really depended on the location and convenience to the event. All encounters with the staff members were good ones. They were friendly and attentive. We rate this hotel overall good value for the money.

    « Awesome hotel, definitely recommend! »

    This hotel really impressed me! Front desk service was fast, efficient and very helpful with everything. We got a free upgrade upon arrival which was a nice surprise as well! The room had a keurig, with a variety of coffee and tea, which is always a nice touch. We didn't use the pool area but there were many who were swimming laps and the area looked clean and well maintained. Breakfast was very good, it was a hot breakfast which not all Best Westerns offer, and had a waffle maker, sausage, bacon, occasionally French toast, scrambled eggs, cereals, oatmeal, fresh fruit, coffee, juice and assorted pastries. The selection varied a little day to day but you get the idea. This is a motel style hotel with the door located on the outside but the area is safe and right across from a plaza with some shopping and restaurants. The hotel offers a shuttle to Larkspur to take the ferry over to San Francisco if you don't feel like fighting the traffic. Depending on the time of day, the shuttle can take less than 10 or more than 20 minutes to get you there with traffic so plan accordingly. Great location, 20 mins from Muir Woods, 15 mins from Sausalito, 20 mins from San Francisco and right next to 101 S. Overall we had a great experience and would definitely recommend this hotel!

    « Dated, overpriced and poor desk service »

    This property is quite dated and would be a two star $75 motel anywhere else. Unfortunately, Marin hotels/motels are very overpriced. Front desk service is very slow and sometimes incompetent. Restaurants recommended as "excellent and close by" turn out (when you read the reviews) to be a bare step above fast food. We asked for a late checkout, then were locked out of our room when we returned 15 minutes early to pack up and check out. The delay in sorting this out and getting into the room made us late to our next engagement. Rooms are dark and low-ceilinged. Breakfast in "The Porkhouse" was minimalist. A place to crash, but I wouldn't expect more.

    « Charming »

    The staff was welcoming and attentive to our needs. The hotel was charming. It felt like a vacation spot and not just a hotel. The room was very clean, and smelled fresh. The bed was comfy and we had plenty of nice pillows. Breakfast was hot and fresh, and quite tasty. Overall, a good experience and I would definitely stay again.

    « excellent valud »

    the hotel staff were courteous and professional. the facility was comfortable and the pool was quite excellent in size and maintenance. the full breakfast was excellent in quality and service. i made my reservation directly with hotel staff and found them to be very engaging and helpful

    « Brilliant! Stay here! »

    We recently stayed here for 3 nights and this hotel delivered on absolutely everything! Firstly, it is very conveniently located right next to a very large shopping & restaurant complex full of great eating options etc. it is also right beside the ferry to take you across to San Francisco (and the hotel will even take you to the terminal free of charge whenever you like!) Secondly, the amenities at the hotel are great. A very generous recreation area (gym, basketball ring, ping-pong, bbq & pool) along with a nice little open gas-fire pit to enjoy a glass of red wine on a brisk night. Thirdly, the generous cooked breakfast is served in a very large restaurant-style building adjoining the hotel. Heaps of table space & well catered. Finally, the rooms are absolutely fantastic. Well fitted out, spacious, comfortable, great wifi signal etc. lots of parking available. This was one of the best hotels we have stayed at. The staff are very helpful & courteous and a credit to the Best Western Chain. Well done! AAA+++

    « A great hotel! »

    We booked several rooms for my daughter's wedding in Mill Valley. The hotel was close by, had nice amenities for families, and the staff were very warm and personal. I'd highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a place for a large group.

    « Professional and Courteous »

    Spent two nights there and not only is it very economical for the Bay Area, but the rooms are very large and comfortable. I was very impressed with the professional attitude and the courteous approach of the staff...from the room cleaners to the desk. The location, if you have a car, is ideal for visiting Marin and the City. Very Impressive.

    « Nice place in Marin County, near Mill Valley »

    This is an old motel that has had lots of recent updates. Beds are great, coffee in room (Keurig) was better than coffee at breakfast, better than average breakfast with lots of seating for a group since they have taken over an old restaurant. Nice size pool that actually accommodates swimmers, rather than "splashers". Fire pit outside is nice but shuts down at 10. Fire in lobby is also nice for those who want a gathering place after 10. Price was great for our wedding group, especially for this area. Great shopping and restaurants are very close.

    « Great accommodations & decor-Fabulous breakfast! »

    The location could not be easier next to a freeway ramp. The decor of the lobby was wonderful, as was the room. The breakfast was a winner. I did not see an elevator, so if carrying heavy bags, keep it to the first floor.

    « Excellent choice »

    I was really tired and wanted a good night's sleep. I was not disappointed. The receptionists were very friendly and even guided me to the excellent "Brick and Bottles". The room was very clean and spacious. Sleep quality was also very good. The pool looked awesome.

    « Very nice stay »

    The Hotel was in a great location. It was easy to get to from the freeway. Also the disabled rooms where well equipped. The handicapped parking was hard to find. All special items where in the room when we arrived (2 extra pillows and 2 blankets).

    « Excellent value »

    Room: Clean, all functions (wi-fi, TV, lights, plumbing) in good working order, nicely arranged. Staff: Courteous, helpful, professional, friendly Beds: THE BEST! Breakfast: Terrific! This is the second time we've stayed here and on both occasions we found it to be an excellent value.

    « No pools or jacuzzis as advertised »

    I'm a frequent Best Western customer and have stayed at this location on numerous locations. During the last two weeks I've here, booked an expensive room twice and was never informed that the hotel was experiencing a major boiler problem and that their advertised Olympic pool and two jacuzzis were not working and shut down. Also there was significant ongoing construction to the area right next to my room ( drilling and jackhammers starting at 8am). One has to appreciate that the fact that the main reason guests stay at this property is for the quiet and for the pool and spa amenities. I could accept the situation more easily if I had been notified about it or if the rooms were discounted to reflect the situation-- neither was the case. I am a frequent guest here, and when I spoke to the manager about this he knocked the price down $20 and that was about it. No real apology, no concern about the fact that the property is being misrepresented if amenities advertised are not available. This isn't a one or two day thing-- the construction is ongoing, and the broken boiler happened 2 weeks previous to my stay and according to the manager will likely not be fixed for 2 additional weeks. I think that by not mentioning these significant issues to guests BEFORE they book, this hotel is misrepresenting their accommodations. I'm a platinum Best Western rewards member, and this just doesn't cut it in my book.

    « Advertised pool is NOT heated at the present time »

    Went to book a room there for this weekend, mostly upon the advertisement of a large heated outdoor pool for my kids to enjoy. Fortunately, I asked the person on the phone before booking the room, who told me that the heater for the pool had broken recently and she didn't know when a replacement would be installed.

    « Great »

    We stay here with our employees and the location is perfect for them because of surrounding stores and dining. The hotel is kept very clean and the staff is very helpful & friendly. We will be working in the area for the next couple of years and we will continue to stay here.

    « Good hotel outside of San Francisco »

    This older hotel has been updated and has comfortable, adequate rooms. The rates were very reasonable compared to staying in the city. Very friendly and helpful staff. Hotel was clean and quiet. The breakfast was average, but included in the room price. We usually stay at the Hampton Inn in South San Francisco, but they did not have any rooms available with two beds. I was traveling with my two daughter's and needed 2 beds. This hotel offers rooms with two queens and also a room with a queen and a double. This was not the most amazing hotel that I have ever stayed in, but would definitely consider staying again. Having clean rooms and a friendly, helpful staff are very important to me and this hotel has both.

    « A good stay »

    Clean and nice decor, good accessibility to freeway and location. Amenities good - nice pool, BB court, sitting area outside room. Very pleasant atmosphere. Bed nice. Not a lot of shelf space in bathroom.

    « California Dreaming »

    Very friendly staff, very clean rooms and a large very large and inviting pool. The breakfast was not extensive but was enough to get you going in the morning. The location was great and within walking distance to many services.

    « High quality at a great price. »

    The hotel is very clean and the amenities are exceptional. The only setback I had experienced was having to walk to my room, I was here on business and did not have a vehicle. But this was remedied the next time around when the front desk accommodated my request immediately for a closer room to reception.

    « needs updating »

    it is old and needs updating, there is no elevator to the second floor and the steps are uneven and hard to climb with the luggage, there are rotted places on the railings, and the toilet kept running every 15 minuets.

    « Convenient to the City »

    This hotel provides shuttle service to the Larkspur Ferry. Altough an older establishment, the hotel is maintained well, the rooms are comfortable, the staff terrific. We have used this hotel every time we've traveled to San Francisco over the past 35 years and have not been disappointed on any occasion.

    « Great stay »

    Great stay. Thank you. We've stayed before. The location is great. The accomodations are comfortable. Our recent stay did not have a view but the room was appropriate for my husband's disability. We are coming back.

    « Would NOT Recommend »

    I have stayed at this hotel numerous times in the last 5 years +. The only good things I can say about it would be the pool (which I have never used) and the breakfast. In every room I have stayed in the beds have been in terrible condition. You can see the huge dip in them. After all this time I can only assume there are no good beds at this hotel. The condition of the hotel needs WORK. It is old old old! After this last visit I will never stay here again. For a small amount of money more you can stay in much nicer properties with nice rooms. This property has an excellent location to shopping and restaurants. They need to tear it down and build something worthy of the money being spent to stay there. They should without doubt be stripped of the Best Western name!

    « Nice location, property needs an update. »

    The rooms and in-room wi-fi need to be upgraded. Great location allows for you to stay busy, but I likely would not again stay here due to the run down rooms. At $170 for a motel room, that motel room better be really nice. The rooms here look, feel and smell like the 70's.

    « Close to the city »

    This motel has continued to be an excellent choice to stay close to San Francisco. We are in the city in 10 mins. The grounds are always well maintained, beautiful pool, excellent breakfast in a very lovely area of Marin.

    « Had a comfortable stay! »

    Staff was excellent! I loved their smiles and friendly demeanor. Room was comfy, wish it wasn't so far because I wanted double beds but other than distance it was fine choice. I wish the light worked right away when I went in because I arrived late night so I immediately spoke to someone about fixing it. And they came the next day.

    « Pleasant stay. »

    Rooms are very clean and some what updated. Comfy beds and a decent free breakfast. Fridge in the room is a nice thing to. It just smelled closed up until we opened the windows for some fresh air. Love the location as it's close to a bunch of our regular destinations.

    « Great Location and easy to find »

    Great location for sight seeing San Francisco and surrounding areas, used the ferry to go to Pier 39. Motel staff were very helpful , we didn't use the facilities as we were too busy going out but I thought that the golf and basketball was a great idea. Would go back again if we were in the area again

    « Love staying at Best Western Corte Madera, CA »

    Enjoyed out stay at the Best Western Corte Madera, Ca. Everyone is so pleasant, free breakfast, pool and activities. Even in the rain, we all went into the outside hot tub...Fun! Would stay there again.

    « Excellent Hotel »

    This is a very nice hotel, better than the Marriotts I usually stay at. When I have to be in the bay area I will stay at this hotel. I loved it. The room was beautiful, very clean, the bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. I have no complaints. I was not able to try the breakfast buffet due to my circumstances but it sounded more like real breakfast than continental. If it was a full breakfast buffet then the cost of the room is reasonable. I am a senior veteran with AAA and AARP and I thought I might get a little better rate but the breakfast I could not partake in may have justified the price. This hotel is right off the freeway, easy to get to and VERY quiet. I was very impressed and very satisfied. Good bye Marriott!

    « I like it »

    I stayed in Best Western last weekend and it was good, excelent people, rooms clean, area clean , close to mall in corte Madera, my daughter school in San Rafael (Dominican University) was perfect choice. I will stay again next month.

    « Comfortable »

    I stay here at least once a year and have never been disappointed. The rooms are clean, good sized and have enough furniture for a couple. The bed is comfortable. The breakfast is a hot meal with egg, waffles, sausage/bacon and the usual continental fare. Located across the street from a shopping mall that has several restaurant choices and nearby another large mall.

    « Best of the Best (no pun intended) »

    This Best Western has a lot going for it. Location and weather. A large outdoor pool and hot tubs throughout the complex and is set up for enjoying the temperate climate of N. California. The rooms are in quiet setting even though it's right off a busy thoroughfare. It's family and single person friendly. And convenient to shopping. We highly recommend it and keep coming back whenever we are in the area.

    « Convenient, Comfortable, Congenial »

    My partner and I along with two other couples stayed at the Corte Madera Best Western for New Year's Eve. We were attending a party in the area and this was the perfect meeting place for all of us to stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rate was very reasonable and I appreciated the fact that it was also very clean and quiet.

    « Very Nice Experience »

    Very reasonably priced and extremely clean and quiet . Excellent location close to San Francisco and wine country. Great shopping at The Village Shopping center and directly across the street...You will not be disappointed.

    « In and out stay »

    We had to stay one night before a medical procedure at UCSF in San Francisco. This hotel is right next to the freeway with easy access. We always stay at Best Western if possible as their amenities are wonderful and their service exemplary.

    « Convenient place to visit Marin Co. family »

    This is the second time we've stayed at this hotel for our Christmas Eve family gathering. The rooms are adequate and the breakfast this year was much improved over 2 years ago. The heating system was bit noisy during the night but it was cold so we needed to leave it on. There was a fairly large gap where the door closed letting in cold air. Some fresh weatherstripping would probably help.

    « good stay »

    Nice hotel. Excellent service. Professional staff. Would, will, stay again. No real complaints. Can't beat the location relative to my work in San Rafael. Traffic conditions are perfect. We will stay here again. I have recommended to our staff to stay here. Thanks

    « Great value at a nice hotel »

    The staff here is always wonderful. The rooms are always clean and spacious. Very easy access to the 101 freeway, gas, and there is a great barbecue restaurant in the same parking lot. There is lots of great shopping very nearby. I've stayed here for both business and leisure and recommend it for both. The breakfast is good and convenient. Ample parking makes it convenient for coming in and out.

    « A really wonderful experience »

    Room was very clean and comfortable, all the fixtures and heating system worked correctly, very close to good restaurants and shopping, grounds and parking very clean and well maintained, very friendly and knowledgeable staff, I dont usually single out staff for comment as i know it is a team effort to service and satisfy a guests stay but definitely special mention must be made of Tamir on the front desk, during my many years as a business traveller rarely have i come across an individual who excels more than he at customer service. Congratulations to the whole team and to the management as well who i am sure are responsible for this high level of customer service. Don Fonceca

    « Best Off-Road Hotel »

    This off-road hotel is like no other I've stayed t of its type. It's lie a mini-resort. Full size olympic pool, two jacuzzis, basketball court, putting green, fireplace in the lobby, free breakfast buffet (and better than many are restaurants). The staff is very kind and helpful, and the hotel grounds and rooms are clean. We really enjoyed our stay, and plan to make it our place when visiting points north of San Francisco including Muir Woods, and Muir and Stinson Beaches.

    « Excellent room, great staff »

    Bed was incredibly comfortable. The heater/air conditioner was quieter than any hotel I've ever stayed in. Internet was more dependable than any other hotel I've stayed in. I appreciated having an in-room refrigerator. Everything was clean. Housekeeping staff was friendly and professional. I loved the deck outside my room. The pool temperature was just right.

    « Best Western Corte Madera »

    Bugs Bugs Bugs, Good news is there is a Safeway across the street where you can buy a bottle of RAID. My suggestions is spray the room at check in go back across the street to the Cheesecake Factory and have dinner then buy some clean sheets, return to the room install sheets and sleep. Next day go to the city and check into a real hotel.

    « Lovely hotel »

    This is a lovely hotel. Close to shops and restaurants. The grounds are like a little oasis with lots of outdoor space to play or rest. It is close to the freeway on and off ramps with a gas station across the street. The staff was accommodating when I asked to have a microwave put in my room and there is a little refrigerator so I could bring my own food. The room was comfortable and clean and had a great balcony that I could enjoy - which I did! I always enjoy staying at this hotel.

    « Can I give zero? »

    Check in was quick....meaning she didn't say anything beyond hello and here is your key while her "trainer" was there sipping coffee and just staring. We went to our room and left not knowing the bathroom spelt like mold. At this time I am to tired to complain...just shut the bathroom door. Kids screaming in the courtyard. Because I booked through Orbitz (as they owed me a free night) I am not awarded my points. But, as a Diamond member I can now see how you play. Never will be back...will never recommend. Novato Oaks Inn is the way to go. Disgusting. Oh, by the way I dont complain....rather write a review that sticks with people. First time here I loved it.....that's is when I used my Best Western card number to book. It is a shame.

    « Thoroughly enjoyable, updated vintage hotel »

    Extremely pleasant stay. Clean, attractive upstairs room had small balcony looking out through shade trees to courtyard/pool. Some might have found it small, but it was completely adequate to my needs. Front desk people were good-humored and helpful getting me straightened out after I had taken the wrong exit. I had a room on the side most distant from the freeway, and slept well there. An excellent seafood restaurant across the street. Very happy to find a Recyclables wastebasket beside the regular one. I'd certainly stay here again.

    « Unexpectedly nice! »

    I never thought a Best Western would be so nice! Huge pool and lounge area. Check in staff were super friendly. Remarkably good room quality for the money. The location is relatively close to Muir Woods.

    « watch out for price hike »

    this hotel will take advantage of people who need to stay on a weekend when other hotels in the area are filled. We needed to be near Petaluma CA and all B.W. hotels were full due to some event going on in the area. Only available BW hotel within 20mil range was BW Corte Madera. Not any nicer than BW Novato but about $130 more a night. They do not give discounts for military or veterans as most BW do and they take advantage of people's desperation at a later date. This was a good BW when I stayed there over 5yrs. ago but has raised prices on a daily basis are too high for what it is. Rooms are nice but small and it is older than most. People are nice and food is as good as any other BW I stayed in.

    « Clean and friendly »

    This is an old school hotel that has been updated. The front desk was friendly and welcoming. Our room was clean. The bed was very comfortable with fresh white bedding and a great mattress. We had a small balcony overlooking the huge pool. The breakfast, served at a restaurant next door was included and very well done. The location just off of Rte. 101 was easy to sightsee both north and south.

    « Another great stay »

    Had stayed here last year and enjoyed. Had the same room again and the stay was just as enjoyable. The Pool is a great asset and the surroundings are very nice. No Interstate noise in my room but very convenient. My room had a balcony and it was very enjoyable to sit out in the evening. Breakfast was improved from last year with a better choice of items which would now suit most tastes. My only negative was I had asked at check-in about using Traveller Cheques to pay for the room & was told they would be accepted. However when I came to check out they would not accept them & I had to find a bank to exchange them which luckily I did near by as I was flying out that morning so any delay was not welcome. All the other Best Westerns I had stayed in that vacation had accepted them.

    « wedding group »

    We recently used this hotel for a family wedding. It was convenient to our venue and to the city of SF, the staff were very accommodating with room changes, shuttles to ferry, even shuttles to our meet and greet party. Although the rooms are a bit dated, they were clean, and quiet.

    « In Need of Major Renovation »

    We stayed at the Best Western Corte Madera Inn during October 2015. This hotel has friendly staff, however the hotel is old and in desperate need of major renovations. I would not recommend hotel. It is extremely overpriced for the value received. Consider staying elsewhere.

    « good choice in marin »

    We find that convenient location nice grounds, make this hotel a good choice in Mari. The rooms could be updated, but the grounds are nice. There is a pond full of a variety of bird, an above average pool, a place to shot hoops, exercise room, etc.

    « Old and Overpriced »

    Keep in mind--my company paid for my stay at the Inn so my review is not because I feel like I was cheated out of any money. I would also like to say the staff was extremely kind and courteous. Popcorn ceilings and noisy wall furnace if you run the heat/air. The rooms have actually been updated with carpet, decor, counters, but it is still old. If you are a swimmer they do have a great outdoor pool. They also had a nice outdoor patio by the pool. For the price though, I'm afraid I can't recommend the Inn.

    « Quaint, older style »

    Minor issues, like a small bath and a humming noise 24/7 from the refrigerator. Loved the balcony. Very clean. TV picture wasn't very good, but wasn't there to watch tv. No room in the bath for toiletries.

    This best western is very very dated. What made it better was the room we had, has a rear exit door to a large court yard with pool, fire pit, bbq grill, court, miniature putting, ect. Also had a very nice breakfast. Would we stay again, maybe?.

    « The Best King Size Bed in a Hotel! »

    We stayed 3 nights. Excellent room, pool, breakfast and guest laundry room. Loved it! Very nice people working at this hotel. The whole experience was so wonderful we turned a 2 night stay into a 3 night stay. Would go back if we could. Best Western Rewards Customers!

    « Good location to see San Franciso and Marin County »

    We stayed at Best Western, Corte Madera for two nights due to its proximity to San Francisco and the sights in Marin County. Check-in was quick and efficient and the staff friendly. Rooms are in several two-story buildings and our room (127) was at the rear of the property. It was quiet, clean, had a nicely-firm queen bed, and was a good size for two travelers. There is a large pool, jacuzzi, and a small guest laundry on the premises. A good buffet breakfast is served in the small BBQ restaurant adjacent to the parking lot. We also ate dinner there and thought the food was very good. Each room has an outdoor seating area and the common areas are full of flowers and nicely kept up. Our room rate ($175 per night) was reasonable for the area and far less than the rates charged over the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Only negatives were a loud air conditioner in the room that was signaling it was due for service. My wife likened it to a "jet engine" noise. Fortunately, I always travel with ear plugs. Also, the guest laundry area had only two washers and two dryers. They were inexpensive ($1.00 each), but one washer was out of service. If you have a lot of laundry to do you might want to check out one of the laundromats in the area. I reported both problems at check-out and my feeling was that these issues would be addressed promptly.

    Always stay at this hotel in the Bay Area. I particularly love the lap pool on the property. Staff is always great. Location is perfect for getting on Hwy 101 and doing business in all directions. Many good places to eat and shop in the area.

    « Enjoyable Stay »

    We used this hotel as a starting point for a tour of Northern California. The hotel is older but is by no means worn down. Everything was clean, in good repair and the bathroom had a shower that did actually work very well, not your usual leaking thing that puts water all over the place and it had a glass door, too (I hate those curtains). The outside area of the hotel looks nice and features a unusually large pool for a BW hotel. Breakfast is your usual BW dependable self. Nothing special we were missing some more fresh fruits and found the coffee from the "Keurig" machine in our room much better than the one in the breakfast area. Staff is really friendly and helpful. All in all we felt welcome and enjoyed our stay.
