What a wonderful find and so close to the Golden Gate Bridge! Loved the pool and spa and the s'more kits at the fire pit were just adorable. Affordable, friendly, and quaint! We will definitely recommend this charming hotel to family and friends.

Joanne and Ina are the best. Check in is always the first impression and these two put you right at ease and make you feel welcomed and ready for your stay. My reservation was printed ahead of time with room keys and map of the grounds. Joanne is from the east coast and can crack you up with her humor...

Loved the heated pool and smores. Rooms seemed updated. No elevator though? Balcony leaned and felt very unsafe. There were 2 small water bottles in room and no note of charging to drink yet got charged $3 per bottle. Breakfast was good and parking was adequate.

Dear AKGRLS, Thank you for taking the time to post your recent hotel experience at the Holiday inn Express Mill Valley. We are glad you enjoyed the hotel.

This was our favorite hotel after a long day of San Francisco sightseeing and hiking through Muir Woods. We were excited to sit out by the outdoor fireplace and make s'mores with the complimentary kits. The rooms were quiet, clean and comfortable. There was a little open patio outside our door and hammocks nearby. The clerk could have been friendlier...

We spent two nights here as it was totally convenient to all places we wanted to go. When you get off of the exit the hotel does not appear to be very special, but it is! The outside looks a bit "weathered" but inside is a different story. Really nice, clean and up to date rooms with great amenities, a...

We loved this hotel for it's ease of travel to both Marin County and San Francisco. It is literally one exit from the Sausalito off ramp. It is near the freeway but the noise was not a problem. We have a dog and they are pet friendly. The area around the motel is a series of beautiful trails for biking,...

Friendly staff, clean room, quiet hall, and comfy bed. What more could a weary traveller want? How about s'mores by the fire! Yes yes!! This was a very nice place to stay while visiting family in Mill Valley. We would be happy to stay here on our next visit to family and the surrounding areas - SF and wine country.

My husband and I stayed here 2 nights recently. We have family nearby, so we often visit this area, but have never before stayed in the Holiday Inn Express. The places we usually stay are quite a bit more expensive and have more character. However, we were pleasantly surprised here and found many advantages in addition to the cost. Pros:...

This place does not disappoint nor rock your world. Everything is nice and comfortable, as you would expect. The bike/walking trails were great at sunset but were offset by having to pay $4 for bottled waters at the end. The hotel's best attributes were its proximity to Muir Woods and the beauty of the drive.
