This hotel is just ok, but I'd definitely recommend staying due to its great location. One lady on reception was excellent, but the general stay wasn't exactly as expected. We booked three nights, they only had us booked for one (although they fixed this). We specified a mountain view - it didn't happen with no explanation given. The hotel website says there are s'mores around a fire pit each night - nothing at all to be seen in the whole of our stay (and the weather was fine - no rain to stop this happening). Breakfast was good, but crowded and served on paper plates with plastic cutlery. You're really accessible for San Francisco, Headlands, Muir Woods and the road network is very good from just outside of the hotel though. We found the Mill Valley - Sausalito cycle path very good, although the hotel's bikes are average at best (poorly maintained with flat tyres etc).
Sausalito, about 10 minutes by car though, is stunning and we found the ferry to SF to be the easiest/most convenient way to get to the city. All in all it's good, but only as a base to do other things.
