We were very pleasantly surprised by spacious and well maintained rooms at this Holliday Inn Express. We staged a 5 day motorcycle trip up the northern CA coast to explore the redwoods from this hotel in Mill Valley. The hotel staff were very accommodating and friendly and we were allowed to park our truck and bike trailer at the hotel... More

I stayed at the lovely Mill Valley Inn off and on during a month of relocation to the Bay Area, and I cannot say enough about the sensitive service offered by the manager Brian and all of his staff. The decor and amenities of the Inn are charming, with many thoughtful touches in the rooms and an extensive buffet every... More

This was our second visit to Mill Valley Inn and hopefully not our last. I can't praise the place enough. The people are wonderful and always ready to help. Our room was great. The breakfast and happy hour are wonderful. The location amongst the Redwood trees is wonderful. Need I say more. WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL,WONDERFUL!

We loved this place. Really quiet with a view of some nearby redwood trees. We checked in and were initially given room 2, just above the parking area. Rooms 1 through 4 are on basically a bridge just 40 or 50 feet from an acoustically live, concrete echo chamber, where even with your room door closed you can still hear... More

Perfect combination of charming yet centrally located boutique hotel. We stayed in the cottage and couldn't have been happier. Gave us the feeling of being right in the middle of redwood trees and just a few short steps away was the center of the town. Continental breakfast was great and they will make lattes and cappuccinos should you so desire.... More

Staying at a boutique hotel in Mill Valley seems to be the perfect combination to get the right feel of bucolic Marin County. Right in downtown with easy parking and access to many restaurants, shops and coffee shops. Both the town and the Inn just "ooozzz" personality. That's why we love boutique hotels in general. We stayed in 2 different... More

Creek Lodge is a separate building in back of the Mill Valley Inn main building. It is peaceful and pleasant. Interior decoration is on the rustic side with distressed wood furnishings. Bed was very, very comfortable with soft, high quality linens. Loved the location - tucked into a redwood grove with a wraparound porch. Cool and comfortable with the door... More

My husband and I stayed with our two teenage boys for one evening at Mill Valley. We originally chose it for the close location to Muir Woods and the availability of queen sized beds. How pleasantly surprised we were when we checked in and found a lovely room - it was spacious, beautifully decorated with comfortable beds and oversized chairs.... More

My husband, daughter and I recently spent two night at the Mill Valley Inn and could not have had a better experience. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, the staff at the Inn made us feel at home. The Inn has a library of DVDs, wireless internet and offers a fantastic continental breakfast and a wine... More
