I spent a lot of time thinking about what I would say in this review, primarily the hours where I tossed and turned on the uncomfortable bed in this stuffy and dirty room. How did it earn two stars? The location is excellent, the staffer we met was very friendly and you do get a voucher for a pastry/coffee. Why...

Find it across the street from the central square in Sausalito. A charming little hotel above the shops in downtown Sausalito. The rooms are small, with a 1950's touch such as a bay window and amour vice closest. A small TV but it was fine. Small old style bathrooms with modern showers. Great beds and linens. I had my best...

Hi Malcom, Thank you for your kind review. Our beds are brand new, as well as our top of the line linens, I'm glad they helped you have a great night sleep. Our rooms are on the small side, due to us being a historic building. However, I'm glad you were able to appreciate them! Please keep us in mind...

Decided to getaway for our anniversary. We chose Hotel Sausalito for its location and value. We were not disappointed. On arrival, we received a free upgrade to a suite (room 203). The room is at the street corner of the hotel with views of shops, the bay, and folks shopping. We loved it. It was noisey withthe windows open but...

This is a boutique hotel in the center of town with partial views of the water. It was my first stay here and I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel has been tastefully redecorated in a style which suits its quaint facade, but with modern amenities. My bathroom was lovely, with a spacious shower in a glass partition that didn't require...

Our affection for this hotel grew somewhat from our first not-so-positive impressions. The location is brilliant - perfect for access to lovely Sausalito and a very short walk to the ferry into San Francisco. The staff are very friendly and helpful, too, the beds are really comfortable, and the hotel towels put some luxury hotels to shame! The hotel is...
