Very friendly and accommodating staff. They serve a Good breakfast. Kind of run down room and furnishings and furniture. Probably better for more of a casual traveler not a regular business and leisure traveler like myself. I'm not inclined to stay here again but that's just me.

This is a brilliant option if SF is booked out or too expensive. We struggled to find a place in SF due to a huge conference happening. The Inn is small, and quiet and an easy drive to the ferry port. Staff are friendly and helpful. San Anselmo has some great eating out options.

This little inn was delightful! Located on a quaint street in San Anselmo, the inn offers a wonderful breakfast with delicious homemade breads, jams, quiches, and much more. The rooms are welcoming and the staff were extremely helpful and professional. Be sure to dine at "Valenti" the wonderful Italian restaurant located on the premises, where chef Duilio prepares authentic Italian... More

It seems a lot of the previous reviewers are forgetting the stars credited to this hotel and the price range it comes in, they seem to be expecting the moon on a stick when in reality, this basic but charming hotel does the job very well. Rooms are spacious, well appointed in could be described as kitsch in their decoration.... More

We needed a place to stay for a family wake, last minute. Luckily, The San Anselmo Inn had a room for us. Cute little room, very comfortable and cozy. The breakfast "B" was fantastic! Delicious menu, fresh ingredients and great coffee! Very friendly staff. I highly recommend this little inn in a very pricey area!

Had a 5 night stay while visiting relatives. Room was clean, quiet, and parking was convenient. We would typically come back to the room around 10pm, unfortunately all of the bars nearby seemed to be closed. We were pleased with our stay. Breakfast was nice and staff was consistently friendly. Would return anytime.

Great restaurants, shops, Imagination Park with YODA and don't miss MHBB for their delicious fare... The Inn is charming and the service is wonderful. They have the best breakfast made with loving care. Be sure to utilize the bikes! Plan to relax and spend time in the garden~and take in the natural beauty of San Anselmo. One night is barely...

Old Inn with some charm, good breakfast which comes with the room. The room was small, an air conditioner that had to work over time to keep room cool. We quickly opened and closed the door to the hallway to keep the cool in hall was as warm as outside. One of the pictures is of a girl that works... More

The location was great - in the center of a charming downtown in the heart of Marin county - and the price was right - just over $200 for a two bedroom suite. So a friend and I arrived at the San Anselmo Inn, where we were staying to attend a bat mitzvah in nearby San Rafael. The exterior was... More

This Inn felt very European, but with modern touches. (ie,recessed lighting). It was very clean and tidy and fresh. My complaint would be about the headboard in our room. It was not a good feature as it was very easy to bump ones head on as you were lounging. It was not comfortable to lean back on. Something that would... More
