We chose the hotel based on wanting to hike Muir Woods. We had no idea how comfortable the hotel would be as well as the town. The hotel offers a great breakfast and wine and cheese happy hour. The room was clean. Decorated with nice decor, nothing inexpensive and not over the top. Very nice balcony that added greatly to the room and experience. There is a nice big tub with bath salts. The bathroom is large as is the room itself. The bedding was very comfortable. Sheets were very good quality and so are the bath towels. My husband and I were very happy with our stay. We highly recommend the hotel and the sweet town that it is in. So close to San Francisco.

This is the only trip advisor review I have ever done, so this should be a real testament to the Mill Valley Inn. The staff here are amazing, we were promptly greeted at check in and the staff not only escorted us to our room but helped us with our bags. In our room we were greated with a handwritten card for my birthday, an amazing piece of cake and a perfect pink flower all to celebrate my birthday. And the room? Amazing! It was clean and had a beautiful balcony overlooking a stream, I honestly cannot say enough good things about outlet stay!

We stayed in the first cabin in a little grove of redwoods. It was lovely. Private and very quiet given it is at the back of the property, off the street. Beautiful linens on an extremely comfy bed. Nice bathroom. Superb service. Excellent breakfast. Great location in walking distance to good restaurants and an easy drive to Muir Woods and Stinson Beach. We'd stay here again.

I loved staying at this hotel and wished I could have stayed longer. The room was charming as were all of the staff. They went out of their way to make me feel welcome and comfortable.
A real find in Marin.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the third floor. The view is very nice.

The room overlooked the street and we slept with the balcony doors open. We had a queen sized room. The bed was made by Dux. If we could afford it, we would replace our 5 yr old mattress. The sleep was divine. Breakfast was fantastic including steel cut oatmeal, lox, capers, tomato and cream cheese on a toasted bagel. Waffles were another option. There was lots of fresh fruits, Greek style yogurts and quality condiments. None of the cheap hotel refrigerated or mix items.

The desk staff was not only pleasant, but very helpful with suggestions.

Will go back in a flash.

Room Tip: We had a low end room and it was great.

Very nice boutique type of hotel in a beautiful quaint location. Great service and decent breakfast. Staff was very unobtrusive and you needed to interact only if you wanted. We enjoyed our stay and the only negative is that on Tuesday Morning if you are on the street side the garbage trucks will wake you very early in the morning. However, 2 of the larger rooms #7 & 8 are on the street side.

Our sink was clogged and shame on me for not saying anything as I thought the maid would notice when she cleaned the sink so we had a somewhat clogged sink for three days. Nonetheless, a beautiful little hotel in a nice setting and we would defiantly stay again.

Room Tip: 7 & 8 are nice size rooms if travelling with family. Great coffee shops close by as well as som...

Just had a weekend getaway with my wife at the Mill Valley Inn and absolutely loved it. Stayed in the Creek House out back, room and balcony were nesteled in a redwood grove above a creek. Room was very comfortable and quiet.

Complimentary Breakfast - Great
Location in town of Mill Valley - Great
Hiking into Muir Woods right down the street - Great
Wine/Cheese Happy House - Great

Just a great place for a nice getaway. Did not need to get in our car for two days and will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Creek House out back is great.
