Staff great ! Mark was wonderful we were able to check in early and to enjoy a wonderful lunch. Love that you could walk over to the trails and have several options. Breakfast the following morning was relaxing and appreciate being able to sit outside on the deck to enjoy the view and the crisp cool morning. Staff all helpful... More

Friendly staff and an idyllic setting (stunning views; verandas; walk to Muir Woods) made this an ideal base for our two days in the Mill Valley area. But here's what this place needs: 1. MOSQUITO SCREENS!! There is no air conditioning, which would be fine, except . . . the smaller rooms have no windows, only doors to the veranda,... More

Highly recommend the Mountain Home Inn. Staff was extremely accommodating (huge shout out to Mark for waiting around for us to check in as we arrived late and showing us around the Inn) and the Inn is beautiful. The rooms are all really nice! Some have bigger beds and TVs but the views from every are spectacular!!! We woke up... More

From the nice website, I had the impression that this was a high-end, boutique hotel. In fact it is a bit lived-in, albeit in a pleasant way. Our room had a terrific view and was comfortable. The location--high above Mill Valley just into Mt Tam park--is relaxing and quiet. We hiked from the Inn to Muir Woods and back, a... More

It's lovely to be able to stay on Mt. Tam with access to hiking trails practically right out the door. The inn was rebuilt after a fire, incorporating redwood logs as columns. Most rooms have balconies. There are great views from both bedroom and dining room deck. We stayed in the Miwok room which had a queen size bed, a... More

They advertise that they are open till 8:30 but they open and close when they want. They told us they would be open till 8:30 and we drove all the way our from the city and arrived close to 8:00 and they were already closed! We knocked on the door and someone "acted" like they didn't speak English! 😳 Then... More

We end up staying here about once a year for a getaway even though it's only a couple of miles from our home. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the rooms are clean and quiet. The place could use a little sprucing up, and the wi-fi is sporadic (you shouldn't be working anyway), it's not deal breaker for us.... More

The rooms here always need some basic maintenance -- little things like loose doorknobs, a few cracks in the ceiling that should be filled, teak deck chairs that need to be refinished. Nothing major, just basic maintenance. If this were a cheap motel, it wouldn't bother me. But it is fairly expensive so I feel like the rooms should be... More

Although the place has some maintenance issues (cobwebs, iffy but free wifi), it is the perfect spot for a hiking vacation in the wilderness of Mt. Tamalpais and Muir Woods. You can literally walk out the door and into the park. The rooms are very cozy and clean, with amazing views of the forest and the Bay. The food at... More

This review is for the restaurant only. Seating on the deck in fairly uncomfortable chairs. No umbrellas to shade from direct sun so bring a big hat. Food is good, fairly standard menu. Service was great. Nice place if your planning to go to Muir Woods.
