On arrival the passage and room smelled a but musty, but open the window and it aired out in no time. Sliding door and balcony with special lock on door so you can sleep with it slightly ajar and still be safe. Very comfortable beds, good bathroom. Fridge in room was noisy and impossible to unplug, disappointing. Really good breakfast... More

I chose to stay here because I had business nearby. Proximity and low price were my only concerns. I'm very pleased to say the experience of staying here exceeded my needs and went above and beyond my expectations! The room was clean, A/C worked good, it wasn't noisy and the staff was very attentive. However, it was the extra perks... More

Room located on lower level, housekeeping friendly and front desk staff, particularly Joanne and Marlene EXCEPTIONAL! I have been to his hotel many times and have never had a negative experience. The Front Desk is especially helpful with extra kudos to Joanne and Marlene for their warm welcome each visit and helpfulness with any request.

This is out 2nd lengthy stay (10 days plus) in 2 years visiting elder relatives. A lot can happen in that amount of time at a hotel. We found Mill Valley because of the location and our rewards club but we came back because of the service, staff, and overall winning amenities. From any room issues; to billing; the value-added...

Don't be fooled by the posh exterior and water views; the interior has a seedy, smelly, dank feel, which I did not experience until after I paid and got my key. All the money appears to be invested in the beautiful grounds but the room we got smelled of cheap perfume, was run down, and the carpet and furniture were... More

I recently started working San Francisco bay area, and was lucky enough to find an excellent Holiday Inn Express in Mill Valley.

We needed a hotel close to the Sweetwater cafe and hotels are really hard to come by during peak summer. This hotel was clean, nice rooms and in a great location. The breakfast was good and the wifi worked well...would definitely recommend this hotel!
