We recently spent 4 nights at Mill Valley Inn while we were in Mill Valley for our granddaughter's first birthday. Its location was ideal! We were within walking distance of our daughter and son-in-law's home, and steps away from all the wonderful restaurants, coffee shops, stores, markets, church and theaters. On entering the Inn, there's a feeling of peace and tranquility, from our warm greeting by Yvonne, to the charming, comfortable accommodations. We had a lovely room with 2 very comfortable queen beds for my husband and myself, and one of our daughters. The room had French doors opening to a small balcony, and a relaxing chair & ottoman. I felt like I was in a quaint, boutique hotel in Europe. Along with the impeccably clean room, there was a great selection of bath amenities. We never saw our housekeeper, but our room was always meticulous and restocked when we returned. A special delight was the late afternoon wine and fruit, cheese and crackers; and the morning breakfast buffet was outstanding! We especially appreciated the perfect espressos and cappuccinos made by Evelio. He and the other staff persons maintained the buffet tables and kept them well stocked. All of the staff went out of their way to be sure our needs were met. The room rates may seem higher than in some of the more commercial hotels, but when you figure the breakfasts, evening wine/beverage hospitality, the free use of bicycles into the equation, coupled with the service, hospitality and charm of the Mill Valley Inn, it would be hard to beat!
