Great Hotel! Friendliest hotel in SF area. We chose this hotel over other IHG hotels in SF and we were so glade that we did. Great out door pool and FREE marshmallow smores for everyone.

Stayed here for a friend's wedding, and had a fantastic time - the hotel was very clean, convenient, and close to both the city as well as Muir Woods, Point Reyes, and Sausalito. Only complaint would be that it was VERY loud in the morning, doors slamming and talking in the hallway. Otherwise, it was a nice hotel, good free...

We spent the weekend in Mill Valley. We chose this property as it is centrally located in the area we wanted to explore. This property is standard Holiday Inn Express. Clean and remodeled. Only complaint is that the desk clerk would not or could not look up my membership number so I could get credit for my stay.

We were originally planning to stay in San Francisco, but decided to try this place instead -- and we were glad we did! The location is perfect (just off Hwy 101, less than 10 minutes from the Golden Gate bridge), it's cheaper, quieter & safer than staying in "The City", and our room was clean & beautiful. We also enjoyed...

Located conveniently just beyond the Golden Gate bridge, is this unassuming little HI Express. I have no complaints just positive comments about this hotel.

This is an ideal place to stay if you are visiting Sausalito and San Francisco and outlying areas. It is also a short drive to Muir Woods. The price is very reasonable when you compare it to either Sausalito and San Francisco, plus, while the property is not new, it is very well maintained, clean, and professionally run. Great value...
