Old motel that needs lots of maintenance. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any effort to make the place as hospitable as possible in the meantime. Some of the furniture is dilapidated; ants in the bathroom, stain on sheet so we didn't use, towels are poor quality, no continental breakfast as advertised nor coffee makers in room. Thank God the... More

I had difficulty finding a reasonably priced motel in Mill Valley and this was the one I settled on. It is in a remodel currently and in need of some work. It is not somewhere I would normally stay but it met the need for one night and the internet did work well.

The total price, including taxes, was about $110 per night. This is definitely a two star hotel. The physical plant is tired. The carpet in the room has burns in it from a hot iron and cigarettes. The quilt on the bed had seen better days. The lock on the door did not latch properly. The hotelier did not fix... More

Stayed here one night to save a few bucks on a trip. The room was huge, but mostly crappy. Saw only one roach, but it haunted my dreams. The TV is nice, but the heater didn't work well. And it was loud, with two rednecks fighting in the parking lot at 2AM. Pretty sure that the guy in the room... More

Unfriendly staff, extremely unhelpful, unkind even. They treat guests as if they are a nuisance, just like in Falty Towers, but here it is not funny. Shower did not function, which you may expect after paying $ 155,. Don't go there if you can help it.

Easily one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed at. When checking in the lady lost interest after about 30 seconds and sent for her husband (who I assumed to be) the manager. He looked through the list of available rooms (only a couple were taken), looked me up and down, and then gave me a room next to a... More

We were en route to Oregon when we stayed at this hotel. The owner was friendly enough and the room was well appointed and clean. We had no tea or coffee facilities but did have a microwave, free wi-fi and a TV. It’s situated on a busy road so walking places is not really an option. It’s also close to... More

I made a horrible mistake believing across the board, the quality of America's Best Value hotels are the same. Please do not waste your money at this location. The property post the check-in time is 2pm. I arrived at the hotel at 6:15pm. I met the cleaning person at my room. She let me know she had just arrived to... More

This is an old apartment building that's been converted into a motel. Florescent lighting gave it a creepy feel. Not well cared for at all. The bathroom and overall cleanliness was just ok, but we were so desperate & tired that we stayed.They gave us 2 towels. Called & asked for more & she told us to come downstairs &... More
