      When I booked this room on Booked.net there were several people that gave bad feedback, But I found the rooms to be very clean, modern and comfortable and the staff to be friendly enough, Great value. It is close to a freeway, but with the windows closed at night, it was reasonably quiet.

      breakfast was not very good............... the fruit that I was told would be there, was not there for any of the 3 mornings.

      Very nice rooms comfortable bed and plenty of room.

      Parking was difficult. Small parking area and a lot of large trucks.

      There was a problem with the several rooms. The hotel arrange for is to stay at another hotel and north bay inn paid for the rooms. I would consider rebooking at north bay inn because of how they handle this.

      I thought the North Bay Inn was a great value!! The whole room looked completly remodeled. Very comfortable

      Parking was alittle tight but it worked out

      The price of the room was good, the room was very nice and had a refrigerator, microwave, iron and hair dryer. All things we really appreciate. Convenient to downtown San Rafael.

      There wasn't anything in the room telling us about the area, maps, attractions, no information about breakfast and the internet. I always like to read the information in the room....there was none.

    • Couple

      The room smelled horrible of funk and orange cleaner. Dust was incredible... Everywhere huge dust bunnies. Bed spread stained.

    • Family with children
      4.2

      the beds were comfortable.

      I did not like location at all, would not reccomend for women traveling alone. The bedding and carpet were not clean.

    • Couple
      3.8

      Staff was nice.

      The inn is located in a shady area of town, next to the junction of two major freeways. It was very loud. We asked for a non-smoking room, but were initially given a room that was obviously a smoking room. When we complained, we were immediately given a new room, which was a friendly gesture. The new room was much better, but smelled like air fresheners. In the middle of the night, two ladies knocked on our door loudly, shouting 'Tom Hanks, open up'.
