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 hotel for visit to Mt. Tam and Muir Woods."
Even at rush hour, since we were only one exit from Mt. Tam/Muir Woods exit, we had no trouble on US 101. India Palace, adjacent to the hotel has great Indian food, also available as room service. Hotel also has a jacuzzi room.
I rated this one highly because for the price, the comfort is unreal. The beds were superbly comfortable and new, the room came with a frig, microwave, flat screen TV, cable, comfy furniture, and despite it being on a main artery, the windows protected against the street noise. The rooms were spotless and smelled fresh. The furniture and carpets aren't the most fashion forward, but for the location, price, and comfort, grading it down for that is being small.
I graded the appearance slightly down as the parking lot and outer appearance make it look a little slummy, don't let that fool you. It's more comfy on the inside than it looks. My only complaint was I needed ice and I was handed a small bag instead of me being able to fill up the bags I needed for my cooler. For the money I saved on the hotel price, I could go buy a bag of ice for my cooler. and still be way ahead.
The bed was quite comfortable and had a great tub and shower. Despite being located near the highway the rooms were very quiet. The breakfast was good, with a variety of offering and good fruit as well. I did notice that on Monday travelers arrived and were given a last minute price-- tho thats a risky proposition in the bay area where big conferences for sales force.com and medical meetings can fill every hotel in miles.
The bikes that were free were great bikes as well.
