I had grerat difficulty finding a pet-friendly hotel in the Sausalito (most were booked up) so I went a little beyond there and found Acqua in Mill Valley. I'm glad I did. This property is definitely a worthy alternative to other near-SF areas. Check-in/Check-out went smoothly (a supervised trainee handled our check-in a little more slowly but you've got to roll with that in the post-COVID rehiring times). Our ground-level room was nicely appointed with a partially separated entry area next to the bathroom and before the bed/outdoor access. The patio area was a great place to just veg out (wish it'd been warmer though). The buffet breakfast had an adequate amount of offerings from cereals to sausages. It would have been fun to dine on the outdoor, second-floor patio but it was just too cold. The property was a little off the beaten path but our GPS came through and found it. It's only about 10 minutes to Sausalito and the ferry to SF. It's also convenient to the wine-growing areas of Sonoma and Napa. There's no restaurant so you do have to go out to eat but staff are good with recommendations. We actually found Bungalow 24 in Mill Valley to be an excellent choice. We'll definitely stay at Acqua in the future when in the Bay Area!

We traveled to the Acqua to get away for a weekend and had a wonderful time. What we liked: The Jr Suite with Fireplace was a beautiful and comfortable room with a view of the estuary and a private patio. Breakfast offered a variety of options that made the whole family happy and mom and dad enjoyed the wine bag reception. Property was well maintained with a lovely lawn area next to the estuary. And it was well located for exploring Marin by car. Staff was all wearing masks, hand sanitizer was easily available and overall the hotel was clean. The stairs were easy to take as an alternative to the the elevator and the room could easily be aired out by opening the door to the private patio. What could've been better: The staff was friendly, but ware rarely available as they were often speaking with other guests or not at the desk at all. Check in took longer than expected for the same reason. You can hear the freeway when the doors are open, not a fault of the hotel, but something to know if you're expecting a tranquil getaway. The welcome letter noted availability of a DVD player, but when I asked the desk said it wasn't an option (which disappointed my kids). Confirmation letter also noted that we'd be temperature checked which didn't happen. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and will likely return.

For an hotel in this price range and location, the Acqua is excellent. The room was fully equipped with everything a traveler needs. Comfortable beds and pillows. Excellent amenities. Clean, quiet, and comfortable. Plenty of power plugs, good lighting, large screen TV. Wine, water, and a cookie!

Gorgeous location and value for a hotel in Marin! We came here for a weekend with our dogs to visit friends nearby but this would be a lovely getaway weekend spot for locals too! Greeted by a nice half bottle of wine, water, and cookies, we walked into a Spartan, amazingly clean hotel room. I’m not quite sure how housekeeping did it, but this hotel room felt like it had never been stayed in. The bed was super comfy and the view was gorgeous. The hotel was so quiet. We felt like the only ones there. Breakfast had a number of options, but get the pastry. Trust me. It’s sweet and salty(?). So buttery and delicious. Each morning we awoke and walked the dogs along the water. So romantic and beautiful. Really couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Highly recommend!!!

Beautiful view, easy access, and spacious rooms, the Acqua Hotel offers a great alternative to San Francisco's high priced hotels and it is located at the door of the beautiful Muir Woods. The cheerful staff provides a full excellent breakfast and free bicycles to ride along the boardwalk. Stores are within minutes and five star restaurants just around the corner. The highway noise can't be heard at all inside and all the rooms face the beautiful water, providing beautiful sunsets. There are fire pits to under a canopy to cuddle by and benches along the trails. Plus, upon check-in, we received a customized bag of our favorite beverage and treat. Well done!

Room Tip: Choose the second floor - it leads directly to the buffet and is high enough to have a great view.
