This is out 2nd lengthy stay (10 days plus) in 2 years visiting elder relatives. A lot can happen in that amount of time at a hotel. We found Mill Valley because of the location and our rewards club but we came back because of the service, staff, and overall winning amenities. From any room issues; to billing; the value-added...

Don't be fooled by the posh exterior and water views; the interior has a seedy, smelly, dank feel, which I did not experience until after I paid and got my key. All the money appears to be invested in the beautiful grounds but the room we got smelled of cheap perfume, was run down, and the carpet and furniture were...

I recently started working San Francisco bay area, and was lucky enough to find an excellent Holiday Inn Express in Mill Valley.

We needed a hotel close to the Sweetwater cafe and hotels are really hard to come by during peak summer. This hotel was clean, nice rooms and in a great location. The breakfast was good and the wifi worked well...would definitely recommend this hotel!

I was so disappointed in the receptionist we encountered on our stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable, there was a decent breakfast available but Joanne ruined our stay and we will not be giving anymore business to this particular hotel. We had bill issues and just wanted to understand them-she was very put out by our questions and treated...

Stayed here as we wanted to be close to Muir Woods and the Golden Gate bridge. The staff was excellent, rooms and pool great, breakfast nice, outdoor seating area for breakfast a bonus. One caution, at high tide the back parking lot fills with water and I got my feed soaked getting to the car. Park in the front.
