I can't add too much to the other recent, excellent reviews. Great location, nestled next to a redwood grove (amazing to us from the East) and close to a lot of restaurants, but on the edge of the business district. Staff was fantastic, and really helped us. We had a lovely treat put in our room when they learned it... More

We stayed in room 22 for our honeymoon. Beautifully appointed king-size room with a sunken tub and large shower. The breakfasts were sumptuous. The staff was very kind. Muir Woods and Mount Tam were minutes away. Restaurants and stores were steps away from the hotel. We loved our stay and highly recommend the Mill Valley Inn

This Inn is right in the middle of town in Mill Valley. We stayed in the rear Creek House, which was roomy and had a very comfy King bed, hardwood floors, big bathroom, large wrap around balcony overlooking trees & a creek. Did I mention the redwoods right outside the door? Very nice breakfast was included in the price as... More

This little town has it all. Great location so much to do around the area. The inn was so well run. The people who worked there went above and beyond to help with whatever we asked. S fantastic breakfast is offered, and also an afternoon wine and cheese. Would definitely recommend.

We lived in Mill Valley until about 12 years ago and come back regularly to visit friends. We always stay at the Mill Valley Inn because it's right in the village where the "action" is. The setting is idyllic, especially the rooms in the redwoods at the rear of the property. The Inn serves a wonderful buffet breakfast which is... More

My husband and I just stayed at the resort for a total of 4 nights. We had room 19 in the Creek House with a King size bed.

We have stayed at the Mill Valley Inn a number of times and have always enjoyed our time there. It's a wonderful location--right off the main square. In the five days we stayed there recently we never had to drive to a restaurant, as so many were just a block or two away. The staff is extremely helpful and accommodating.... More

This Inn, located less than a half an hour from San Francisco, is in a lovely peaceful town adjacent to good restaurants and interesting places to visit. Our room, located on the top floor in the back, was spacious, comfortable, quiet with a view of redwood trees. The breakfast was fresh and generous. The staff was very friendly and accomodatng.
