My wife and I stayed here right after Christmas. The Inn is lovely with great service in a wonderful location. This charming little town is very walkable with many excellent restaurants just a short walk away. Rooms are spacious and well decorated in an understated manor. WiFi was strong and free. Our room was in the front but on a... More

We read the reviews. They were all accurate with what we experienced. The location was the best. We enjoyed the breakfast and free wine and cheese mixer. The hotel is situated next to gorgeous trees and a creek runs right next to property between rooms. The walls were super thin and it was a bit noisy. But we did not... More

After a flight from the U.K. and drive from the airport, it was so nice to be welcomed at the Mill Valley Inn. Our room was large, spotlessly clean and with a large very comfortable bed and with a view to the redwood trees and creek below. Mill Valley isn't very big; so walking anywhere is easy, there are loads... More

This small inn has large comfortable rooms. We stayed in the main hotel with a room in back and requested a room with a stall shower. The room was great and quiet with a great woodsy view. Breakfast was much better than average and the server was accommodating and helpful. We missed the afternoon wine and cheese.

I stayed at the Mill Valley Inn last week for a few nights and loved my stay. The breakfast was wonderful and the wine and cheese hour a great way to end the day. Special thanks to Euelio, who is in charge of the breakfast service, and Kelly, who worked the front desk. They both did a terrific job and... More

Stayed in Creek cottages, beautiful room, large bathroom with shower and tub, great location. Breakfast included - was ok. Very accommodating at front desk. Wish this has been a romantic trip instead of a business trip - perfect ambiance for couples, though would recommend for all.

Beautiful location. The back of the hotel feels as if you are in the middle of the redwoods. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed. There is an afternoon wine and cheese reception in the common area backing up on the redwoods - just beautiful!

The Mill Valley Inn is tucked just off the center of Mill Valley and is well worth seeking out as a central location for exploring San Francisco, Muir Woods and Stinson Beach, as well as the Wine Country north of here. There is a generous wine tasting with snacks each afternoon, an bikes to borrow as well. Great spot!

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel for 3 nights while attending a friends wedding in Marin County and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Prior to arriving we had stayed at a fairly large corporate hotel in San Francisco and the difference was obvious straight away. Reception is a single room at the front of... More

This was a nice hotel. A bit overpriced for what you get. We booked the largest family suite on the top floor and I was a little disappointed that there wasn't a fireplace in the room. The bathroom was nice and the views of the redwoods were lovely. The breakfast was very good in the mornings. Over all, it was... More
