I was rather underwhelmed although I had a "recommended" cabin by the creek/drainage. It's basically a small motel and rather expensive $323/night, but the location is good, within a short walking distance of many shops and restaurants. Neither the room nor the property had much to recommend staying again

Nice place close to nature trails, old well kept rooms. Not sure if room will accommodate three or more people. Families with children might have to struggle ( room has a big old style heater etc making the space very tight). They do have an awesome breakfast with salmon etc.

Stayed at Mill Valley Inn after a long trip across the country. The room was clean and comfortable, the bathroom was nicely sized and well appointed with updated tub and shower. Lots of restaurants within walking distance and majestic redwoods in the backyard. I am not a fan of continental breakfast at most hotels but this breakfast was truly outstanding.... More

Our room (Creek House #20) was literally in the redwoods on the creek. Absolutely fantastic. Room was very comfortable with a nice couch and a couple of arm chairs. Town and the park are just a five minute walk. Staff is very attentive. WiFi works well.

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
