“lovely place”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

San Anselmo Inn is very convenient. just one night stop over but would have been happy to stay longer. Lovely village feel place. Staff very friendly and easy to talk to. Nothing too much trouble, even gave me the recipe for the breakfast fritatta. Excellent breakfast. Will stay again. Owners seem to have plans for the place. will look forward to seeing it.

San Anselmo Inn is perfectly located in downtown San Anselmo (Marin County), an ideal place for a relaxing yet active holiday in northern California. Each room has its own special retro decoration, which make this small hotel a really unique place. Both management and staff are very nice people, always ready to meet your needs and offer suggestions when required. If you like biking, the Inn has a certain number of bikes available ("cruisers", free or charge), while if you like mountain-bike, there a number of trails around (mountain bike was invented in California).
Breakfast is excellent (special mention to a variety of hot quiches!) and hot drinks are always available whenever you wish. Free wifi in the rooms if you need to work, absolute cleanliness, very quiet. Walking distance to local shops and services, parking available.

Room Tip: Small suite with connecting rooms available if you travel with small children. Every room is differe...

We enjoyed our 2 nights at the San Anselmo Inn very much. Our room, although small, did the job very well, and the breakfast was excellent. It included fresh fruit, homemade baked goods, and freshly made quiche. The location is very convenient to many of the attractions of Marin County, such as Muir Woods, Mt. Tamalpias, Marin Headlands, Sausalito, Tiburon (ferry to Angel Island). We had 2 outstanding dinners at local restaurants. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms at the side of the building are quieter than those facing the street.

Home away from home and so much more.
Art, the manager is a dream, everything is clean and homey, excellent restaurants and coffee shops right out the door plus beautiful neighborhoods and parks to stroll through.
It's perfect! It has everything I need.

We stayed here on one Friday night in February. The room was cute and clean, the
bed was comfortable, and the continental breakfast was excellent (included fruit such as berries and kiwi, an egg casserole, good coffee and tea, breads, pastries, hard-boiled eggs, etc.) The location of the inn is convenient because it is right downtown within a short walking distance of many dinner and lunch places. We arrived late and had to let ourselves in but that was no problem. It was nice that we could stay one night only-that may not always work here, but many Bay Area hotels don't allow it at all.
