Aside from a few possible nits (not worth picking) this inn offers much more than excellent lodging. It may not be paradise but if you just want to get away for a couple of days it could be. We are California Central Valley residents--a place of sometimes intolerable summer heat, often bad air quality and a general dearth of good...

Stayed there week of August 12, 2014. Large room very comfortable. They have an extensive free breakfast and a lovely late afternoon wine a cheese gathering which we very much enjoyed. Service friendly and very helpful. Easy walk to some excellent restaurants and a quiet location.

We stayed at the Mill Valley Inn for five nights in August. A number of our friends stayed there as well. Everyone loved the Inn: its centralized location,the helpfulness of the staff, the excellent breakfasts, and the well-furnished, high ceilinged rooms. There are many nice restaurants within a few blocks of the inn, as well. Highly recommended!

Excellent location within walking distance of restaurants, walking trails, bars and stores. Rooms are comfortable and there is a great 2nd floor deck that looks out over a grove of redwoods. Staff is friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was excellent. Check out the walking trail just up the road to Cascade Falls - great lazy walk in the redwoods..

We stayed at the Mill Valley in for 3 nights. The room was exceptionally comfortable. The location right in town was wonderful. The breakfast is delicious, as is the wine and snacks mid afternoon. One night I was awoken by dripping water from the wall AC unit. Luckily none of my electronics got ruined, because I woke up. We informed...

My husband took me on a trip to Mill Valley for my 40th birthday. The staff was wonderful and attentive from the moment we walked in the door. They remembered my birthday and had cake and wine waiting for me when I got to my room. My husband is a very light sleeper and our room was just outside the...

This wonderful little hotel was located in just the right spot of Mill Valley, centrally located so you can walk all around the town. Rooms were excellent, front desk service was super helpful and the breakfast was delicious!

We stayed here for the first two nights of our honeymoon in the penthouse apt and it was wonderful! There were such beautiful views from the room, a great deck and very spacious living area. It is located close to the town square where most of the restaurants are and there is a great craft brewery next door. The staff...

Had a very nice room, complimented with a 1/2 bottle of 2012 Alexander Valley Shiraz and a chocolate bar with seas salt. The "Cottage" was beautiful with fireplaces and country style furnishings that made sense with the redwoods. The included continental breakfast was outstanding. Good quality smoked salmon, fresh oatmeal, berries, waffles and much more. The stay included a wine...
