"Excellent choice in Mill Valley"
Perfect location for hiking, biking and visiting Mill Valley. Fabulous breakfast and support team serving you a special coffee. Very comfortable rooms and expert directons for hiking the Dipsea Trail. Only thing missing was a walking stick. My fault not theirs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"what a treat"
This was a fabulous hotel in a great location. The huge room was a real treat, we just wish we were able to stay longer.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Windows Open All the Time"
Room had a strong smell of creosote from burning artificial logs in the fireplace. The only way to bare it was to leave the patio doors wide open making it impossible to close the curtains. We had a very bad nights sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel had its own supply of Coastal Redwoods right outside our window. A most pleasurable stayGenuine Expedia guest review
"The Best Place on Earth!"
The Mill Valley Inn is a 5 star resort in our opinion! The staff and all that they offer were amazing!! Our room was beautiful and the bed was a dream! We stayed here 4 nights and had the best vacation! They had current just released movies and bikes all at no charge! The gourmet breakfast and service was exceptional and unexpected! They knew exactly […] where to direct us for touring and even printed out maps and personal directions! The Dipsea trail was located just a two block walk behind the inn and was the highlight of the trip! The scene in Mill Valley from this Inn was like being in Florence Italy!! What a gorgeous place to stay! We ate at El Paseo the first night seated outside amongst the adorable ivy courtyard and had an amazing dinner! Every restaurant in town was a treat with welcoming service! This is definitely the place to stay for San Francisco travelers looking to have a quaint and charming small town beautiful place to stay! A must do is bike the trail to the Golden Gate Bridge (a 14 mile trip total through Sausalito)!! I would rate this Inn a 12 on a scale of 1-10 and I am so glad we decided to stay there! We can't wait to go back!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"In downtown Mill Valley"
Everything was top notch. If you are planning on parking, it is best to have a small car as the under-building parking garage spaces are very tight. Great lotions and soaps and quiet room at back. Excellent!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Raining inside - Too little, too late."
Unfortunately, there was a rain storm and at 1:30 am I was woken up by water dripping through a light fixture on to my pillow. Repeated calls to the front desk went unanswered until around 6 am, when I'd finally fallen back asleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

We are still not sure how this happened, but will make sure it does not, again. We pride ourselves on being a property where guests come to relax and get a great night’s sleep, and I’m sorry we did not live up to the standards that we hold for ourselves. I can assure you and those who are reading that this was an isolated issue, in this particular room, and we are actively working to fix it. Take care, Justin Flake General Manager
"Just a stroll to everything"
I loved being downtown but at the same time on a creek with my view from my room of towering redwoods, a creek w/foot bridge and cherry blossoms. The breakfast was very good for not having eggs or breakfast meats. I like the bamboo floors but wish there had been a thick throw rug for comfort when I did my back work. I brought a thin yoga mat. You are […] within 3-5 minute walk of everything and yet there is lots of privacy and quiet, great weekend (or midweek getaway). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Last Minute booking"
I was recently in Mill Valley and decided to spend the night. I got a great rate at the Mill Valley Inn through Expedia,so I booked it. I have stayed at the Inn on 2 other occasions and had family stay there when I lived there and each and every time it has been a great, relaxing stay. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, the proximity to downtown […] and hiking trails is perfect, the staff is friendly and helpful, and you can't beat the complimentary cheese and wine in the evenings and the delicious buffet breakfast. Love the Mill Valley Inn! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

It was great, the rooms were very nice, clean and comfortable. There was no in room coffee, but the breakfast in the lounge was perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Very Special Place, Indeed"
We had a great kick off to our 20th wedding anniversary celebration before heading on over to the coast for two additional nights. The Mill Valley Inn staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. They made particular note of our anniversary with a few special treats in our room. The breakfast (available to everyone, not just us) was […] one of the most impressive I have seen anywhere. Way above the standard fare. Charming inn in a lovely little town and you are only steps away from EVERYTHING. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great room, location, staff!"
I stayed recently with my fiancé and honestly wished we stayed more than one night. The (free) happy hour wine and cheese was so delicious. Great breakfast spread too. Our room was very clean, super cute/quaint, awesomely comfy bed, and what a fabulous location! We stayed in a room in the Victorian type building in the back - cute little creek below […] us with redwoods all around - and all enjoyed from our porch chairs! We were a quick walk to some nice restaurants and a short beautiful drive to Muir Woods (and San Fran). Thanks for a great first night of vacation Mill Valley - we will certainly be back if we are ever nearby again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"a great hotel"
We love this hotel and the town. The hotel serves a very nice wine and cheese and crackers spread in the evening and a really nice breakfast in the morning. both in a great room.Genuine Expedia guest review
We have stayed there on and off for several decades. They have not remodeled and it is looking tired. Room had hairs in tub and sink was very slow to drain. There was a previous guests briefs behind the lounge chair. Twice i went to retrieve some ice and there were just a few pieces left. Breakfast and happy hour were very nice and staff is very accommodating […] . We love the location, but it is no longer feeling "fresh". Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Mill Valley hotel"
My room was on the top floor, with a balcony overlooking the charming town of Mill Valley. The staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly, the complimentary breakfasts were outstanding (they will even make you a Peet's latte), and the whole experience was the best.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is a small hotel tucked into downtown Mill Valley. It has the main building with most of it's rooms and the lounge for the excellent breakfast overlooks tall redwood trees. I stayed in the Creek House - an older building behind the hotel on the creek. It was comfy. My room was clean, the service excellent and would stay there again. Delightful […] spot!

"Great place for everyone from singles to families."
Overall, great place to stay. I had a room over the busy street so if you are looking for more quiet request a room on the back. Still, noise was not too bad except at 7am when the garbage men come by and they are extremely loud. They offer free breakfast and wine and cheese in the evenings which is a great touch. Everyone was very nice and helpful, […] especially John. I would definitely stay here again next time I am in the area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good experience, just missing something"
A+ for customer service and hotel staff. Breakfast was wonderful and loved the Latte made to order was perfect. But the design of the place looks pieced together, walking to our room my spouse and I were worried about noise from a restroom right next to our entry. The room was the standard rate queen size bed, though luxury linens and design elements […] to the room. We felt it lacked the romantic factor due to the rather load A/C unit hovering over the gorgeous 10+ foot ceiling and the street view. Noises from both directions meant for interrupted sleep and we had ear plugs. Hotel had fair to good accommodations, but honestly my husband and I most likely wont return, wouldn't be the Inn per say but more so the area of Mill Valley, just doesn't suit our personalities and thoughts of a romantic mini- vacation.

This was our first stay at the Mill Valley Inn, and I'm sure we'll be back next time we visit our family in the area. Beautiful room looking toward the redwood grove. Excellent deep bathtub!

Highly recommend as part of the Mill Valley experienceGenuine Expedia guest review
Such a cute hotel and neighborhood. Never been to Mill Valley before and am so glad we found this area.

"Lovely Spot for a Break -- either going or coming"
Loved the Mill Valley Inn. Simply charming, great service. Great location -- just off the town square -- great restaurants, coffee shops and interesting boutiques in easy walking distance. The evening wine and cheese gathering was a great way to meet other guests and the breakfast was superb. An oasis within an easy drive of Oakland or San Fran.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Big Birthday Hiking weekend"
It couldn't have been better. We arrived very early to hike the Dipsea and left our bags in the office. When we returned, all bags were in the correct rooms and we were just in time for wine and cheese. The hotel is beautiful and Mill Valley downtown is wonderful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location But..."
This is the only hotel, it seems, on the town square of quaint Mill Valley and the easy walk to all this small town offers was my primary reason for choosing the Mill Valley Inn. Its proximity to several pleasant restaurants and shops, including a grocer, made the location ideal. That said, I can't say that I recommend it. After sleeping in our "Queen […] bed with fireplace" room the first night we noticed the rattling, ceiling mounted air conditioner was leaking water down the bedroom wall. On closer inspection, this appeared to have occurred some time ago since the resulting stain seemed to have been painted over several times. We also noticed the nightstand lamp shade was similarly affected. I went to the office to report this but found the front desk unstaffed; this apparently because the hotel is run by a single person who occasionally has other duties. As our stay wore on we noticed towels were forgotten after the room was made up, a single ice machine for the entire hotel, and a cramped, challenging parking structure. On the plus side, there is a simple, free breakfast and an evening wine reception featuring wines most people wouldn't buy but it's a nice gesture none the less. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great atmosphere in the heart of Mill Valley"
A charming small boutique hotel, centrally located in the heart of Mill Valley, California. Staff was very friendly, accommodating and efficient. Room was wonderful, with rustic furniture and was spacious. There was a nice little balcony with a small table and a couple of chairs.The balcony overlooked the main street and had views of Mt Tam. The hotel […] is just steps away from restaurants, cafes, and shops as well as hiking trails up to Dipsea steps and to the hills. The bathroom was a little cramped, but did have a stand-in shower and a separate tub. The room came with breakfast. The breakfast lounge was located on the second floor, with a nice in-door eating area as well as a large outside terrace with tables. Food was excellent, with fresh fruit, selections of breads, bagels smoked salmon, and waffles among other things. None were of the typical mass-produced hotel variety but more along the lines of what one would find in a European inn. Coffee was Peat's Coffee - which is far superior to Starbucks. In the evening the hotel had a happy hour, with wine, cheese and some other munchies in the same location. Great atmosphere. There was free internet in the hotel as well as free parking on the premises. Just the way it should be. We had an excellent stay and would highly recommend the hotel.

This inn was wonderful. Very charming and well located in Mill Valley. They serve a lovely wine and cheese spread in the afternoon, plus a great breakfast in the morning. I only gave a low grade on the room comfort as I found the bed to be a bit too soft and springy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Stayed here for a weekend with a wedding party and could not have been more comfortable. The rooms are well appointed and charming, big bath tubs, fire places, breakfast included as well as a happy hour wine and cheese. Great toiletries, flat screen tv, internet and great location right by downtown market, shops, parklands for hiking, restaurants, anything and or everything one needs. Absolutley, perfectly comfortable and a very helpful staff. Worried that it might be too "small town" for our nyc friends and relatives but it was completely up to any excellent standard, no need to have worried. I would recommend this hotel to anybody, any time.
"Loved This Inn"
10/08/14 Romo42 San Francisco, California
Loved This Inn I was needing a little R&R after a long, hard month and didn’t want to travel far for that experience. As I live in San Francisco, the Mill Valley Inn was a perfect choice. I stayed 3 nights over the Labor Day weekend and cannot say enough nice things about this little inn. I booked a fireplace room with queen bed and the room looked exactly like the pictures. It was on the 3rd floor, facing the street, with mountain views, French doors to a good sized balcony with table and chairs, a large bathroom with a skylight, soaker tub and a separate shower. I found the ambiance perfect – low-key, quiet, tastefully decorated room, helpful and friendly staff, great breakfast spread overlooking the redwoods, right in town for easy access to shops and restaurants. Most days I would wander through the little town, buy lunch/dinner and eat out on my balcony. No rush, no bother, just relaxing enjoyment of the sunshine and the peace. I parked the car and didn’t move it again until I left! The staff were wonderful and super helpful! I had left something in the room and they called me shortly after I arrived back in San Francisco. I was most grateful as I hadn’t even realized I was missing the item until they called me and would have been most sad to have lost it. I received the item in the mail the very next day! If you are looking to get out of the city for a long weekend, this is the place to go! The town is wonderfully situated to Stinson Beach, Muir Woods, and mountain trails. And the inn is a wonderful experience unto itself, even if you never leave the room! I am sure I will be back!
"Fantastic Inn, in the heart of the Charming Town of Mill Valley"
09/30/14 Caroline M Los Angeles, California
I stayed for the first time and the rooms were great, cozy, updated and clean. THe decor is charming and rooms are big with private balconies with views of town and the surrounding mountains. My room had a fireplace which made it extra cozy. The breakfast daily is a great value and the staff are amazing. If you are in the area and enjoy country inns with contemporary amenities this is the spot. I highly recommend.
"A bit disappointing."
09/25/14 Lisa K New York City, New York
I am going to copy and paste the review of some people who must have stayed in the same room that we were given, because we had pretty much the identical experience... "My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel. We were really looking forward to being in the middle of the redwoods, however, we were given a room with no view. There were construction workers almost right outside our windows, and we could not lower the shades at all. The room itself was fine, however, the view was so disappointing! They did have a very nice continental breakfast, and the waiter was excellent! The inn did offer a wine and cheese in the evening. The front desk personnel were very nice and professional." Great location within walking to everything Mill Valley. Very nice staff. The people in the room directly above us were super loud stomping around all evening, so when I called the front desk to complain, the young woman who answered was very understanding,and efficient, because the noise stopped about 2 minutes later. Thank you!

We happened to book Mill Valley by chance to celebrate our anniversary.What a great choice It is on the Main Street of beautiful quaint Mill Valley the whole staff is so friendly and helpful that we did not want to leave We miss our daily cappucino at breakfast and the good conversation with other guests at wine and cheese hour sitting on the terrace just chillin The town itself is small with good restaurants shops and theater not for those seeking the city vibe of San Fran as the town is quiet after 9 but close enough to enjoy all the benefits with a 20 min drive into the city I highly recommend Mill Valley Inn as a good romantic spot and the redwoods are just amazing
"Close to Muir Woods & unique in itself"

My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel. We were really looking forward to being in the middle of the redwoods, however, we were given a room with no view. There were construction workers almost right outside our windows, and we could not lower the shades at all. The room itself was fine, however, the view was so disappointing! They did have a very nice continental breakfast, and the waiter was excellent! The inn did offer a wine and cheese in the evening, however, we were not able to enjoy this event. The front desk personnel were very nice and professional. We cut our visit short since we were not satisfied with our room. The General Manager has reached out to us and has indicated how visitors' satisfaction is a priority for them. We appreciate his efforts, and will reconsider visiting this inn in the future.
"A wonderful Stay"
09/20/14 Gilbert C Winnipeg, Canada
We stayed at the Inn for three nights arriving on Sept 19, 2014. We were warmly greeted by Ellen. She helped us with our luggage and showed us to our room, which was situated on the main floor nearest the Redwoods. We really enjoyed our room. It was in the back and we could sit by the table on the veranda and enjoy the weather over a glass of wine. The wine and cheese at 5 pm is wonderfully done and serves a variety of great cheeses and good white and red wines. The breakfasts are wonderful as well. They even offered us Lattes and other specialty coffees. The Inn is in a great location just by the Redwoods and is only a block form the town's stores and restaurants. You are in a park setting and yet in the city. We would definitely recommend this Inn to others.
"Great place for a Muir Woods trip!"
09/16/14 alnelson11 Dallas, Texas
My husband and I stayed at the Mill Valley Inn over Labor Day weekend. Although it was a quick 1-night stop on our way to Napa Valley, we had a great visit. The inn is the perfect location if you plan to hike at Muir Woods (go early!) and is more peaceful than the hustle and bustle of the City. The view of the redwoods outside of our room was lovely. Overall, we were very pleased with Mill Valley Inn and would recommend it!
"Mill Valley Gem!"

Highly recommended! In the heart of Mill Valley, the Mill Valley Inn is the perfect place to stay. Clean rooms, friendly staff, parking. This hotel has the perfect location...walk to downtown restaurants and shops, bike ride or hike up the mountain or jump in the car for a quick ride to San Francisco or Napa.
"An Excellent stay"

A lovely start to our holiday, with everything you could need on the door step. Great touches throughout the room. Great options for breakfast, and a nice touch with cheese and wine between 5pm and 7pm. Make the most of free mountain bikes and easy access to mount tam trails.
