I don't even know where to start I love this little spot so much.... I travel once a month for business into the Bay area and this is where I choose to stay. I stumbled upon it a while back when I was taking out a customer for a late dinner and didn't want to drive back to San Francisco....

I really wanted to like this place; TripAdvisor reviews were okay and it sounded so elegant, so what is our beef? Honestly, the Hampton Inn at the airport had a leg up on this inn. Though it is wonderfully situated in downtown Mill Valley, the property is old and in need of a lot of TLC. My husband never complains,...

I honestly can't think of a time I've had better service at a hotel. I was the maid of honor for a wedding and the entire staff bent over backwards to help me make everything perfect for the bride and groom. Everyone from the management to housekeeping, went above and beyond to make things special. Not only is the service...

Still our favorite place to stay in Mill Valley because of their fabulous location on the square within in steps of good restaurants, coffee places and very lovely shops. They recently redecorated the rooms which are cozy but sufficient. We love the second floor indoor/outdoor lounge where breakfast and pre-dinner wine and snacks are served but you can hang out...

Our family stayed at the Mill Valley Inn because of its location to Muir Woods. We stayed in room 14. It had a nice balcony overlooking the redwood trees. The room had a comfy king size bed and was decorated in a rustic Mediterranean style. The evening wine reception was a nice touch. In addition to the wine there was...

Not sure the wonderful staff and good amenities (fitness facility, great breakfast, hiking handouts, no privacy, better than normal shampoo) were worth dealing with the dark, cramped tiny room with a very saggy bed, dusty upholstery and grease spotted carpeting. This may have been our room only because clearly others had much nicer rooms based on reviews..

We enjoyed our stay at the Mill Valley Inn. The layout is sort of like a multi-level motor lodge. We were upgraded two one of the two king-bed "cottages" which are really just freestanding single hotel rooms. It had redwood trees and a burbling brook right outside the door. It also had a fireplace, and a large bathroom (the room...

We decided to treat ourselves for a few nights at this inn whilst exploring the area. Very well situated in this lovely village with lots of shops and places to eat. We were greeted warmly and then made our way up to our room. The hotel had recognised our anniversary and left a bottle of prosecco and cake for us,...

I was in town for the Mill Valley Film Festival last October. The Mill Valley Inn had availability last minute and it turned out to be such a great find! Right in the middle of downtown Mill Valley, it is easy to walk everywhere - shops, coffee houses, restaurants, screenings. The inn is on a quiet street and backs to...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Mill Valley Inn for a one-night getaway to see a show at the Sweetwater Music Hall. All of the inn staff we dealt with were very friendly and helpful, from the person who took my reservation on the phone, to the people at the front desk, to the people stocking the breakfast...
