Was surprised that the room was not serviced when we returned at 4 pm. They immediately cleaned it. but when we mentioned to desk clerk he asked if we requested room clean up. We did not realize we had to ask. That is different from any other hotel where we stayed.
The best thing about Inn Marin is also the worst: it's right off the highway and, it's right off the highway. Darling little cottage-like rooms in a row, beautiful soap, shampoo, etc in nice wall dispensers (much more efficient), unbelievably clean, comfortable beds, WOOD floors!!! An old place that has been gorgeously redone. I wish the pool opened earlier.
This hotel was fantastic. Fab pool and spa. Excellent location being so close to Downtown San Fran and we loved driving across the Golden Gate Bridge every day to get to the city. I didn't know what to expect when booking this hotel due to the star rating but I wanted a kitchen and this was the best deal and I was very pleased I had booked it as it felt were staying in a 4 star. Everything clean. Comfy beds. Good size kitchen facilities. The staff were great too - very helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone! We stayed with 2 young and very short children (6&4) and they could both touch the floor at one end of the pool which made a massive difference to us being able to relax on the side of the pool whilst they had fun! Other great bit is supermarket/restaurants are a short walk or 2 minute drive. Great for when you are self catering! Very very pleased I booked this hotel :)
We stayed here for one night on a road trip from Southern California up the coast to Portland. The property apparently is an old-style motel (parking outside the rooms) that has been completely redone. The room and bathroom were small by today's standards, and would not be suitable for any more than 2 people. The room had a nice little balcony overlooking the courtyard and that made the room seem larger. Bed was very comfortable and the room and bathroom were immaculate. A full breakfast is provided, but it is in a restaurant a short distance away that isn't open in the mornings. It's a very easy walk, but it might be a little bit of hassle in bad weather. The breakfast was really good, providing both hot and cold options and fresh fruit. Also the restaurant gave plenty of seating, which can sometimes be a problem in other hotels. We didn't use the internet, so I can't comment on that.
Tucked away in the redwoods just off Mill Valley's town square, the heart of the quaint little town, this little hotel offers a beautifully restful experience at the heart of Marin County and within very easy reach of San Francisco itself. For us it has become a tradition to stay here for our first couple of nights after flying in long distance (inter-continental) to get over the jet-lag. The staff are very hospitable and helpful and you can be guaranteed a genuinely warm welcome and help with any problems.
Mill Valley itself is a wonderful contrast to the hassle and bustle of San Francisco, yet it is only about a ten minute drive north of the Golden Gate Bridge. And it's close to the harbour at Sausalito, with its waterfront restaurants etc (though Sausalito is somewhat 'touristy'), and, just over the hill and an easy drive through the road which winds over the outer slopes of Mount Tamalpais, the Pacific Ocean.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to anyone who appreciates quality.

"Great location, easy ferry access to downtown SF"
We really enjoyed Tiburon and The Water's Edge Hotel. It was a great way to visit San Francisco, based in the quiet town with easy ferry access to downtown SF. The hotel was great. The waterfront 2nd story deck was a treat that we used pretty much every day for happy hour, a place to eat our lunch, and just to relax before going out for dinner. All in all it was great. We did have a cleanliness issue our first day but the staff took care of it immediately. Our original room was on the first floor with no privacy and was very dark. We asked to be moved up to the 2nd floor and they were able to accommodate us. We got a bundled package with airfare and clearly had the worst pick of rooms at the Hotel, not really a fault of theirs, just a repercussion of a low cost bundle from Expedia. The 2nd floor room we did get was street view, which we actually kind of liked because it's a cool little walking town and it was fun to be in the middle of. The garbage truck doing its thing at 7:15 on consecutive mornings was a drag but again not the end of the world for us. The staff was great, we joined the free wine and cheese happy hour each night and totally enjoyed our 4 days in Tiburon, thanks to the Water's Edge.
