I have spent a lot of time in Mill Valley, always staying with friends. This time I brought my daughter and husband along... so we wanted to stay in a hotel. I had seen the Mill Valley Inn and had it recommended by locals... I wanted to stay there. Our first room (on the second floor of the front building)... More

This wonderful little hotel was located in just the right spot of Mill Valley, centrally located so you can walk all around the town. Rooms were excellent, front desk service was super helpful and the breakfast was delicious!

We stayed here for the first two nights of our honeymoon in the penthouse apt and it was wonderful! There were such beautiful views from the room, a great deck and very spacious living area. It is located close to the town square where most of the restaurants are and there is a great craft brewery next door. The staff... More

Had a very nice room, complimented with a 1/2 bottle of 2012 Alexander Valley Shiraz and a chocolate bar with seas salt. The "Cottage" was beautiful with fireplaces and country style furnishings that made sense with the redwoods. The included continental breakfast was outstanding. Good quality smoked salmon, fresh oatmeal, berries, waffles and much more. The stay included a wine... More

This was a very good overall pick for a Hotel in the San Fransisco area. The Inn is located close to Muir woods or San Fransisco. Mill Valley is a great town. All restaurants are located walking distance around the Inn. We walked to 4 places and had drinks and dinner. The rooms were quiet, large and comfortable. The breakfast... More

I can't add too much to the other recent, excellent reviews. Great location, nestled next to a redwood grove (amazing to us from the East) and close to a lot of restaurants, but on the edge of the business district. Staff was fantastic, and really helped us. We had a lovely treat put in our room when they learned it... More

We stayed in room 22 for our honeymoon. Beautifully appointed king-size room with a sunken tub and large shower. The breakfasts were sumptuous. The staff was very kind. Muir Woods and Mount Tam were minutes away. Restaurants and stores were steps away from the hotel. We loved our stay and highly recommend the Mill Valley Inn

This Inn is right in the middle of town in Mill Valley. We stayed in the rear Creek House, which was roomy and had a very comfy King bed, hardwood floors, big bathroom, large wrap around balcony overlooking trees & a creek. Did I mention the redwoods right outside the door? Very nice breakfast was included in the price as... More

This little town has it all. Great location so much to do around the area. The inn was so well run. The people who worked there went above and beyond to help with whatever we asked. S fantastic breakfast is offered, and also an afternoon wine and cheese. Would definitely recommend.

Wonderful location. Cordial and efficient staff. Great breakfast plus afternoon wine and cheese. Quiet evenings, wood stove, comfortable beds....all things led to an enjoyable stay. Several good restaurants nearby.
