I stayed one night at Muir Lodge recently simply because it was the first place I found that was on a single level (mobility issues) and I was in a hurry. It has a nice old timey feel while still having modern comfort and convenience. Very clean and the little interaction I had with staff was without problems. My only... More

We stayed one night after landing late on the West Coast and left early the next morning, it was clean and comfortable, good value for money. I can't really comment on service as we hardly saw anyone in our brief passing through. It was perfect for what we wanted.

We are glad to hear your stay with us was a good one and hope to see you again for any future visits to Martinez. Because we are a smaller motel we don't have to staff around at all times but i will remind them to engage with guest a little more for better experience. Thank You, Priyang Patel More

The rooms are pretty clean. The rooms are a little dated and the bathrooms could be updated. But in general, the motel is a good place to stay. The TVs are set with the zoom enlarged so that some of the screen is not visible but that is a minor issue.

Easy to find, just off the Parkway (route 4). Room was clean, cool, large widescreen TV, comfortable bed. Just a little on the small side and some road noise. Could do with teabags as well as coffee packs! Opposite a strip mall with a number of eateries (pizza, Italian, Mexican, grillhouse, deli and yogurt bar. Be warned - most are... More

Review on other websites rated this motel low but they were wrong! Very nice room. Clean and comfortable. Special touches of water and pastries in your room make you feel like you are a valued customer. Fridge, coffeemaker and microwave in room as well. We would definitely stay here again.

I liked the room a lot. They are appointed in a much more contemporary manner than the exterior would suggest. I have to give two small demerits though. The location is just off a busy highway with a lot of noisy traffic, late into the night. A lot of trucks and motorcycles. If you're noise sensitive as I am, this... More

CLEAN!! Small, but everything I needed. Lovely housekeeper. I would totally stay here again. Due to the fact that it is a motor lodge, it can be louder in early am and at night when guests are coming and going in autos. They do provide ear plugs! I had no problem sleeping.

My husband and I have been staying here for years when we come into town. Always clean. Always quiet. All the necessities for the teens. Highly recommended. Close access to family and freeway. Reasonably priced.

“All the rooms have been remodeled and have hardwood floors. The fridge in each room is tiny, but keeps drinks and a snack cool. I notice more traffic passing in front of rooms closer to the office, but all are about the same as far as street noise.”
