We are frequent IHG customers (Spire Elite). This stay was disappointing. After a day sightseeing, we were looking forward to a quick nap before switching to the evening activities. We returned at almost 4:00 and the room had not been touched, service was required because of the dirty bathroom. (Hair leftover in shower from previous guest). After calling the front... More

I know what you are thinking...Holiday Inn Express. But this place is pretty nice and a great value for the area. Room was clean and staff was friendly. The location can't be beat. Really close to Golden Gate bridge, Muir Woods, Sausalito, and Downtown. When you come back in the evening they have a fire pit going and smores for... More

Upon checking in early evening after driving 500 Miles, I was pleased to see that Joanne and Michael had pre-blocked my "View" Room for the Night. Their Customer Service was simply fantastic and they both made our stay most enjoyable. ROLANDO helped me out with the WIFI Connection which I could NOT activate. His experience and great Customer Service were... More

This is a nice budget hotel, but miles away from San Francisco downtown. Did not have much time to explore around as checked in late evening and left before lunch time. Breakfast was low-cost affair served in paper cups & plates which clearly explained it was a low cost budget wing of Holiday Inn chain. Rest was OK.

When we got back from dinner they have ToGo bags of Smores kits. Fun activity for the family. The Sweet Rolls were also very good in the morning. Room was nice and met our needs. Restaurant next door was very good. Near Muir Woods and thus the reason for our choice.

We chose to stay here after flying into San Fran airport as a good place to sleep for the night before taking a road trip up north to Oregon & Washington. It was only about an hour's drive from SFO airport in heavy traffic but allowed us to get north out of San Francisco. Hotel reception staff were very friendly.... More

The Holiday Inn Express in Mill Valley is a nice place to stay. The rooms are comfortable and it is perfect for a good night's sleep. My wife and I get to Mill Valley from time to time, and this is a safe place that is reasonably priced and provides parking and a very good location ....
