I would like to compliment two excellent employees, Judy and Wendy. Both went to great lengths to help me. They did everything in their might to tailor and meet my specific needs. Exemplary employees that demonstrated the utmost professionalism during a minor derailment. At the end of the day Judy and Wendy were both able to accommodate my request. I...

We came here unannounced, having decided to make an early departure from the accommodation we had originally booked (a lodge in Tiburon). Treading more carefully than before, we asked to see a selection of rooms. All were attractive and water facing, not unduly noisy (given the nearby freeway) and very clean. We chose the middle of the range option, and...

We stayed at the Acqua Hotel for 5 days during our visit to San Francisco . Having stayed in the city on a previous trip , we wanted peace & quiet, while still having close proximity to town . The city is an easy 15 min drive away, or a fun ferry ride across the Bay from either Sausalito or...

Fantastic friendly service. Large, comfortable rooms with great beds. Nicely located. I would give it a 5 if there was a bar or restaurant, that's the only thing missing. They do serve a great breakfast though, it's hot and complimentary. There are good restaurants within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again.

During our road trip we've stayed some nights in the Acqua Hotel which was a very good experience. Front desk (Wendy) was very helpful and made us feel very welcome. The hotel serves complimentary wines and cheese in the evening and make sure to tasting the fresh baked peanut cookies. Espresso coffee during breakfast tastes good. Better staying here in...

This was a great find for us! We were looking for something close to San Francisco with a better price then what you can get in the city. It was close enough to the city but a great deal and great ammenities. The staff was very friendly and helpful when trying to plan our day in the city. The views...

No water makes a man very thirsty. Not sure why they have a refridgerator in the room if they can't bother filling it with anything to drink. Sometimes it really is the little things that matter. You know, like life sustaining water? I would be fine with you charging me the standard hotel fee of $5 for what the spring...

JFlake, Manager at Acqua Hotel Mill Valley, responded to this review

Dear "The RealUprooted," I'm really you sorry you were dissapointed about not having water in your room. The true fact of the situation is that we do not want to cahrge you $5.00 for what the "Earth provides naturally." We would rather give it to you for free. That is why we stock ice water, 24 hours per day, in...

I am invited to attend a conference every year and it is held at Acqua. The staff go beyond expectations with kindness and helpful attitudes, rooms are great, and the breakfast bar is the yummiest! (My favorite, make your own waffle! Add bacon bits! And try the chicken mango sausage!) The meeting room where both award dinner and work symposium...

Front desk staff are all friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. I like the uncluttered clean lines of the Zen-like decor. The lobby is nicely furnished in small seating groups with a fireplace flanked by "water walls" that create a welcoming space for the evening wine and cheese reception or the warm cookies that are offered at 7:30pm. Coffee and tea service...

Our room was surprisingly roomy with a very nice bathroom. Every afternoon, cheese and wine are served, and in the morning a modest breakfast provided and included in the price of the room. The staff are friendly and helpful. Good restaurants are close,by and both downtown Tiburon and downtown Mill Valley are nearby. The hotel is near the water and...
