From the moment we walked into the office we felt like old friends with the staff. Our room was spacious and beautifully appointed with a wonderful balcony overlooking Mill Valley's charming downtown. Wine and cheese was served on the deck overlooking a small Redwood Park. The setting was so relaxing and peaceful that we ended up losing track of time... More

I have not stopped talking about the Mill Valley Inn. I travel extensively. My travels take me all over europe as well as the united states. I can honestly say that the Mill Valley Inn was the most pleasurable hotel experience I've ever had. The staff is professional, friendly and extremely accomodating. I left Chicago stressed and exhausted. I stayed... More

Had a wonderful 2 night mid-week vacation at this property recently. We stayed in a newer creek side unit. Staff were professional and accommodating. Room was sufficient. Breakfast was the perfect way to start an active day. The hotel couldn't have been more convenient to all of Marin County, and particularly to the Dipsea trail. In summary, great location, great...

My husband and I recently made our third visit to this wonderful boutique hotel right in the center of downtown Mill Valley, CA. Though located downtown, many of the rooms open on to a lovely wooded area making you feel as though you're in the heart of a redwood forest. Some of the rooms have fireplaces which make them even...

I have stayed at the Mill Valley Inn a number of times over the last 5 years as my daughter lives in Mill Valley. The hotel is a short walk to her home and is located right in the center of all the downtown area, close to restaurants, shops and even a book store/coffee shop/cafe. The staff has always been...

Great inn at a great location within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants in town and just steps away from the historical Dipsea Trail. Parking is easily accessible and available in the first floor garage. The room was well appointed, roomy enough, clean and comfy. The "continental breakfast" is more of a full breakfast with something for everyone.... More

This hotel is fantastic! I stayed in a great room that was clean and super cozy. It's in a gorgeous area in downtown Mill Valley, where there are tons of great shops and places to eat, AND there are beautiful redwood trees on the property. It's also pretty close to SF which is convenient. And I had a great continental... More

This is a great find in a terrific location. I moved to the Mill Valley Inn following a stay at one of the big 5 star hotels in San Francisco. The experience was one of walking into a wonderful oasis of comfort, personal attention, and personality. (Think of a modern European hotel.) The staff was terrific -- friendly, helpful, knowledgeable.... More

My friends and I stayed here on our way back from Napa because we decided to spend time at Muir Woods. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! They have a great wine reception in the evening and the breakfast is top notch. There were so many choices. I love how the breakfast and reception area is outside but it is still warm... More
