this place delivers little extra in every way… extra clean love the ping-pong table
The hotel is beautiful! The beds are comfortable and who doesn't love breakfast included.
Very nice hotel for the money.
Everything was conviently located. Everything clean. Staff was very friendly especially lady at the front desk with short black hair! Wish I would have payed attention to her name but she was very friendly. Hot tub was great.
/The room was large and neat with an outdoor deck. Bathroom was warm. Must have radiant heat. Nice decor. Desk clerks very helpful. Spots on the rug. No refrigerator or microwave. Did have use of the one in the breakfast area. All fabric items were wrinkled. Could not figure out the Keurig coffee machine. Alarm clock didn't work.
Great place to stay. Breakfast was wonderful and filling. The location was very convenient. I would stay here again.
I thought they did virtually all of the little things well: The check-in and check-out were courteous and efficient. There were enough towels, and they were of good quality. The shower worked well, had plenty of hot water and was high enough. The bathroom amenities (soaps, body wash, shampoo, conditioner and mouthwash) were very nice. The iron and ironing board worked well. The windows, curtains and HVAC system worked well enough. Despite being close to the freeway, the noise level was acceptable. The bed was large and the mattress was new and comfortable. It's both minor and personalized, but I found all four of the bed pillows strikingly uncomfortable.
Walking path. Backed car to rear door made easiest unloading and loading ever. Normally, you would say a stones throw from the freeway, but so close, I think you can throw the stone over the freeway. Heavy drapes muted sound somewhat. Bathroom tiny. Price was way too much for what it is. Should be half.
The grounds are nice. Lots of trees, flowering plants, some hammocks and a fountain behind the restaurant/pool. It's close to the interstate, which can be convenient but some rooms might experience more traffic noise than I did (it wasn't bad for me at all). I liked the look of the room and didn't have a problem with noise though I've read that some people have. Depends on your neighbor, I suppose. The bathroom is small but I didn't mind. There's no bathtub, if you're interested in that. Robes were provided in the back entrance closet area. I didn't use the internet but the TV worked fine. Ate at the restaurant one night and they let me take my dessert back to the room on a covered plate with silverware and a cloth napkin, then said I could just leave it in the room rather than take it back to the restaurant later. My meal was tasty and the restaurant's environment is relaxed and attractive with a pleasant staff. I was there in the off-season so it wasn't flooded with people -- that might make a difference, according to some of the other reviews, but I can't say personally. I enjoyed the stay and would probably stay there again if I were in the area.
The room was as was expected and a great value for the cost. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Our room faced the garden. I liked that we had 2 entry ways, one lead to the parking area and one lead to the garden. We loved the swings from the center tree. My son had a fantastic time swinging and meeting other children. It was a bit cool to test out the pool but we are looking forward to another visit to try it out. Some people have said that it could use an update but I honestly appreciated the character. The swanky restaurant was fantastic and had live jazz music. The location was excellent and met our travel needs while playing in the area. The breakfast was simple but enough to start your day.
Room was clean, complete, well-organized and spacious. Colors were cheerful, but not obtrusive. Service was good. Clean bedding was delivered instantly at 8 o'clock in the evening when an open bottle of water tipped over on the bed. No problem. Restful space. Breakfast was simple, but adequate and fresh especially for self serve buffet. Hard boiled eggs were tender and done perfectly, a rare achievement. Open space with mature plants and trees out the big window. Quite nice. Gluten-free options for breakfast, please.
Clean room Not enough free channels on tv.
Beautiful spot, overall atmosphere was really pretty. Within an hour from San Francisco and close to the 101. There were quite a few bugs in the room when we came in. A spider and then a few mosquitoes, kind of a turn off.
Location The experience would have been better if I slept in my car. Not only did I not get an opportunity to sleep after 3 calls to the front desk to shut down the college party next door, but the next morning the front desk person said he could do nothing and insinuated that the reason I did not sleep was my own fault. The room was equal to a motel 6 as was the service. Seriously, if you think about staying here, stay in your car and save a couple hundred bucks! Worst hotel/motel/camping experience ever!!
La cama era estupenda. Habitación grande. Buen desayuno. Una piscina enorme. Justo al lado de la autopista. Volvería de nuevo. No hay ascensor. Lavabo/tocador no cerrado en el baño. No hay bar.
Gran piscina rompiendo fue una agradable sorpresa
had all the conveniences of home ie: microwave small refridgerator coffee pot good mattress Too noisy at night with people slamming doors and loud talking outside of rooms
very good for inexpensive motel. parking close, room was clean, refrig in room along w/ coffee maker. bed was fine. no complaints really. asked for a quiet room and got one. didn't care for noise in hallway while people were getting stuff to rooms, but it ended early enough. very quiet after 10:00pm
It was close to the freeway and 1/2 way to our destination. The price was moderate. Bathroom tile grout was completely moldy, afraid to go barefoot. Beds were hard and lumpy and the carpet had stains and bad repairs where pieces had been replaced. Their breakfast consists of coffee, cold cereal or a 1/2 of muffin. The parking spaces are extremely narrow, even for a Camry, plus several were taken up by buses, so we had to park on the street outside the inn.
Serves it purpose Good restaurant next door Expect much more for the price Best to book online, staff are obviously trained to quote highest price possible with no power to negotiate.
The location worked well for me, close to Sausalito. The housekeeping staff did a good job with the room. Hotel is dated and the carpets and furniture are worn. No restaurants in the immediate area. It is overpriced for what it offers. Far better to stay a bit further north - better value.
The shower was amazing and the beds awesome No hot water at all on Friday morning waited over a hour and still nothing but ice water in the shower. When hot water was available shower w as awesome
Very accommodating staff and clean design. Overall a great hotel for the price. no
The staff was incredibly friendly and the happy hour after a long ride on complimentary bikes was a nice way to end the day. I missed having a hot tub or sauna.
Room appointments, cleanliness, breakfast room very pleasant, drinks in the evening, pretty lobby, great location for our events. Needed more light in the room at times. It was hard to see where the hotel was, coming in from the highway because only one side was marked well.
We spent a long weekend here and it was so relaxing. The staff is extremely helpful. Even the rooms without the best views have redwoods just outside the windows so you can lie back and admire the towering trees. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated, the soaking tub is small (not big enough for two). If you're looking for a low-key restful place, you should certainly consider Mill Valley Inn.
We stayed at the Mill Valley Inn to take advantage of nearby hiking at Mt. Tamalpais. The spacious, comfortable room was clean and overlooked a small audible stream. The staff was friendly and helpful. Located on a quiet street in Mill Valley, we were able to walk everywhere and take advantage of the lovely restaurants.
The bathroom worked as it should. There was hot water in the shower. The drains and toilet worked fine. My wife called the morning we were going to check in to confirm we'd have a room with a queen and double sized beds. She was told we're confirmed and that wouldn't be a problem. When we got to our room that night we had quite a surprise - the room had the double bed we asked for but the other bed was a... twin bed! I called the front desk to ask why there was a twin bed in our room. "Your room has a queen and a double". "I'm standing in my room right now and there's no queen bed here". "How did you book your room?" "Online". "We're not responsible for what the website promised you". "Oh no, no no. YOU just told me I had a queen bed. I am asking YOU to make good on YOUR promise of a queen bed". Silence for about 10 seconds. Then "We're all booked up for the night and there aren't any other rooms". Just out of curiosity, I checked the hotel website and there's no mention anywhere of a room with a twin bed. The next morning I went to the front desk to ask for a call from the manager to refund a portion of my bill. The front desk clerk asked what my complaint was and I told her about the beds in the room. "That room has a queen and double beds". "No it doesn't. It's a twin bed". "How did you book your room?" "Online". "We're not responsible for what the website promised you". "I've heard. But YOU told my wife yesterday we'd have a queen bed. YOUR employee last night told me that room had a queen bed and YOU also just told me that room has a queen bed. I am asking YOU to make it right". Loud sigh. "I'll have the manager call you". It's been two weeks Mr Manager. Still waiting for that call....
cleanness. Staff is rude. Breakfast is poor.
We loved this place, especially for the insanely good price. Walk to Buckeye Roadhouse for steak and back home. Can't beat it. Not enough blankets so we were a bit cold.
The location was nice but if you're willing to drive a few miles north there are nicer hotels for the same price. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. It had several broken springs and was bulging on the sides. The room was very small and there was a table that blocked access to the right side of the king sized bed so you had to crawl on to the bed from the foot of it. No dressers, only a small rack that the tv is mounted to to hang. No shower head, water was spraying at full blast out of a pipe coming from the wall like a hydrant which was not awful but it required me to ricochet water off my hands on to my face if I didn't want water to go up my nose.

Close to shopping. Gross and dated. Smoke detector was not hooked up!
The location is perfect for what we wanted to do, which is the only reason I booked a one-star motel. The price is OK for the area. This is one of the seediest places I've ever stayed. One star is generous. The owners are Indian and not very communicative. The room was too small, no air conditioning (and triple digit temperatures) and not very clean.But the location and price-OK
The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are very well maintained.
convenient location very run down, old amenities. close to highway
Super retro aesthetic, easy access to gas, grocery, In n Out burger, sites around Marin County, etc. Staff was nice, appears to be family run which was cool. Definitely outdated but we expected as much for the price. Right on highway so couldn't keep windows open and there was no AC, just a fan. heater seemed to linger on even after we turned the air off. First AM housekeeper knocked kind of early
The price range. It was located near the place where the wedding of my granddaughter was to take place. Not really.
Better than my first hotel, had a comforter and heating. Wasn't fancy but for the price it had everything you need, bed, good pillows, fridge, bathroom with working shower, TV and cable. Did have burn spots in carpet but that didn't hinder anything. Mmmhhh only thing was battery's in the remotes.
location Everyting is too old for the price. The room had NO ac. Should be a $-- a night room.
The bed was comfortable, it was clean. Our unit had full kitchen, but no utensils,pans,kettle,or coffee maker! Couldn't use it. I doubt other units have one. Right on 101 freeway, Could have been more comfortable with a little more effort - paper towels in holder, an entry mat - for rain footprints on tile, nothing to wipe up with. Bathroom shelf, since it only has a small sink. Light-blocking curtains. $$$
Comfortable bed, cheapest in area. Noisy by hwy, older, no queen bed, only doubles although reservation said otherwise. Small room (squeeze around bed to get to bathroom).

The price, which you can't beat. Close to the high way, and the noise from the road was pronounced. I had to keep the fan on high all night in order to sleep.
The bed was good. The room seemed clean and we did not find bugs anywhere. This motel was located very close to our family member we had come to visit, so in spite of the bad shower and T.V. noise, we would strongly consider using it on a future trip to CA. The shower head was terrible. We could get warm water for only a few moments and then it became scalding hot and if turned it down, it was freezing. The pillows are way too high for both of us, so we slept with no pillow each night. Walls very thin and our immediate neighbor kept the T.V. going till like 2 in the morning and then again by about 6 they would turn it back on. Hard to sleep with the noise.
Good price and location if you want to explore Muir woods etc. Bathroom was not very clean
The personale was very friendly, but there was not what I call a breakfast .... Only coffe and a smal cake. Breakfast could be much better otherwise they should write what it is.You feel a little cheatet with this , because they advertise it as breakfast and it is not.
Good value at a decent hotel. Couldn't access the closet - one of the queen beds blocked it.
Location and price It was a little seedy
Close to fine dining. Had a very comfortable bed. There was dead bugs in the bathroom for 4 days and the windows would not shut good had bad freeway noise. Also trash from people before was seen. I would not stay there again.
It's proximity to where I needed to be at daytime. The room smelled foul. Bed covers and linen had sigarette burn holes in them. The drapes were in bad shape and did not close entirely. The bathroom fan/light made an incredible noise. ( we decied to not turn it on, when possible!). The upstairs floor (outside) consisted of bare plywood, and looked not too sturdy. My recommendation would be to do a complete overhaul.
This motel was close to Book Passage, where I was attending a multi-day event. It is walking distance to a Safeway for purchasing groceries and ready-made meals, and a RiteAid drugstore for purchasing toiletries. The sheets and towels were clean (although the sheets did have cigarette burns in places), the furniture dusted, and the carpet swept. The hotel provided ample soap, shampoo, and toilet paper.The room rate was very inexpensive compared to the few other motels/hotels close to Book Passage. I stayed here in spite of other reviews on that account. The room condition was run-down. There was an aroma that never went away The bathroom sink was falling off the wall and the drain leaked onto the floor. There was a small kitchen area with a battered refrigerator and a gas stove, but there were no cooking utensils, glasses, or even a roll of paper towel. The owner did not understand my request for instructions on accessing the in-room wireless internet connection It's hard to say whether this room was an anomaly. If you are on a very tight budget, you can probably overlook the negatives -- you're only sleeping there.
The convenient location and clean bedding were the only things positive about this place! It was old and dingey with dirt on the walls in the bathroom, mold in the shower, leaky shower head, no fan or window screen in the bathroom, the towels were gray and stained, the wall heater was covered with rust, dirt, and lint, you could see day-light through the wall mounted air conditioner, there was only one key per room, burned out light bulbs, non-functioning outlets, no ice machine or soda machine, shoddy repairs in the bathroom, and the couple managing it spoke very little English!
Nothing was good about this place except that it is close to highway 101. Everything. The hotel was dirty. There was no maintence done. For example, the clothes hanging rod was missing and the hangers were just laying around. You could not open the only dresser because the bed was in the way. I could go on but you get the idea.
The hotel was very affordable compared to other hotels in the nearby area and was right next to the freeway that takes you to downtown San Francisco. The facilities are a little old but fairly maintained. For the low price you can't demand luxuries, especially in an area where everything is kind of expensive.
The hotel was close to the center where my training occurred so that was helpful. It was helpful to have a small frig and microwave handy as well. the hotel was dirty with broken tiles in the bathroom, filth on the walls and doors, the towels had holes in them and were so thin it was ridiculous.
The hotel provides reasonably good value for money. It is very basic and could be cleaner.
