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.

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.
"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.
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.
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 :)
Set back from the street, this European style B & B was just perfect. Very quiet. The interior and furnishings were stylish and well done. Amenities were nice. The gentleman at the front desk took the time to help me figure where to eat; how to get there; how to get to the movie theatre afterwards, etc. Care. I would totally stay there again and recommend it to friends. A sweet find.
Friendly staff to greet us. The property is well maintained. We had a large room with ceiling-to-floor windows, a downstairs work and rest area and a very comfortable bed and large bathroom upstairs. Hotel is located on Sausalito's main street and most of the rooms look out on the bay. The hotel also contains Poggi's, a classy restaurant that offers sidewalk seating.
