Ho Villa
There was a hooker to the right and left of me and one of them had suspicious police activity going on and because of my work attire I felt that I was being watched as if I was going to be some sort of prostitution client. AKA a trick. My experience was horrible. The Wi-Fi was very slow the Continental lentil breakfast was in a dark room early in the morning with minimal things that didn't look all that fresh our shower door was an old metal door that he had to pry up in order for it to smoothly move. With all that said my co-workers room across the way it was ten times worse.

An Alternative to Cookie-Cutter Motels
The Villa is a good alternative to cookie-cutter motels of comparable price. It's in a nice location on a quiet street two miles from downtown San Rafael. Highway 101 is nearby hidden behind the motel, but the noise is not obtrusive and you really don't notice the freeway. It's an older hotel probably built in the 1970s. The rooms are all different from each other, and you can get the equivalent of a studio apartment with kitchenette or other variations. The rooms are clean and most are large. Sometimes there are small maintenance issues such as broken towel racks, but I don't find those to be serious issues. If you or your partner are excessively fussy and insist on standardized, nondescript hotel chains like Motel 6 or Travelodge, you might not like the funky uniqueness of the Villa. But I'm a frequent traveler who stays at many different hotels, and I stay here frequently.

Rock and Roll
I performed with The Unauthorized Rolling Stones at George’s in San Rafael for New Years Eve . The Villa Inn was an excellent choice to bring in the new year . It was less than a mile from the venue . Very clean and quiet surroundings.....
