I have to travel to the San Fransisco/Mill Valley area a few times a year for work. When I do, I always try to stay here. It is in a quaint area of the world. Close to Stinson Beach and Muir Woods. It actually backs up to Muir Woods and has a babbling brook on the property. You can walk... More

We enjoyed the three days we spent in Mill Valley Inn (with 2 teenagers). The town is beautiful, with plenty of shops and restaurants. We used the free bikes at the hotel to bike to the Golden Gate Bridge, which was so fun and beautiful. Hiking around town, up about a thousand steps to parks, with a wonderful view was... More

My wife and I just returned from a wonderful 2 night stay at the Mill Valley Inn. It was our first time there. I chose the Mill Valley Inn as I needed to be close to the Throckmorton theater for a concert I was taking my wife to for her birthday. The Mill Valley Inn turns out to be one... More

Hotel and staff were wonderful. Assisted with local information and driving directions. Town of Mill Valley was a pleasure. Wonderful laid back environment. Super dog friendly. Great local restaurants. Excellent hiking and running. Just a ferry ride from good times in San Fran. Will return in the future.

Although generally charming, this Inn needs some serious management and sprucing up so its up to the prior standards and reflective of the price charged. The area rugs in the rooms are found on target.com, the tv wiring is all over the wall and a mess, the "wood floors" are obviously not real wood, the French doors don't fully close... More

Dear BacktoCA, I’m really disappointed to read your response, and am sorry we did not meet your tastes and expectations. I want to say first of all, that we know we are not perfect. We are always striving to be better and actually are on the cusp of a makeover for our rooms. Though the vast majority of our guests... More

My sisters and I had a wonderful vacation at this warm and welcoming inn. The staff was great, friendly, and helpful, taking the time to get a trail map and help us find an out of the way spot on Mt. Tam we wanted to visit. Advised us how to get to Muir Woods without the crowds. At the wine... More

We loved our three nights at MVI. It was our 10th Anniversary, so we were hoping for a wonderful stay, and weren't disappointed. The rooms are old-school and large. The views of the trees are truly spectacular. They have a nice breakfast on their rooftop balcony each morning, and serve wine and cheese there in the evenings. The Inn is... More

I stayed at the inn for two nights in April. I encountered--by phone or in person--four different young men and women, each of whom was very welcoming, warm and very helpful. For example, I called the morning of my arrival day and said that my daughter would be spending my first night with me. Since I had a queen bed,... More
