After a very long drive I was greeted by two amazing staff members (Joanne Forame and Tammi Silva) who quickly and warmly checked me in. The property is located in a beautiful location, right on the bay. My dog and I couldn't believe our eyes (and our luck) when we realized the hotel is on a simply stunning walking/running/biking trail....

Holiday Inn Express Mill Valley is ideally located. Situated amongst the headlands, there are great hiking, mountain biking, and beach going opportunities. It is also less of a hastle commuting to the city rather than staying in the city with the parking headache and having to drive everywhere for outdoor adventures. Rolando and Joanne always greet me by name and...

Someone asked me why I selected a hotel an hour drive away from Stanford Medical Center, where I was going to be working for a week. "Simple", I replied! Only 5 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge in the lush hills of Mill Valley and saved $200 a night. Why would I want to stay in the middle of...

This was our last stop on our 2 week vacation travelling up the coast of California. The location was lovely -- right on a walking/bike path that went to Sausalito. After a long day of driving, it was great to walk along the bay to stretch our legs. The check in process was absolutely outstanding. Tammi and Joanne at the...

The Holiday Inn is a so-so place to stay in Mills Valley. The room, the facilities and the free breakfast are all what you expect from this franchise - i.e. nothing out of the ordinary. The one thing I cannot stand is the strong detergent smell out in the hallway, which is unbearable. It makes me feel like I am...

Not a luxury hotel, but good spacious and clean rooms, friendly, flexible staff and great location. The breakfast (included) is much better than what mist similar hotels serve as 'continental breakfast'. Not cheap but considering the general South Marin price level, very reasonable.

I am an IHG platinum member and a huge fan of Holiday Inn Express but I won’t stay at this one again. We were warned not to park in the lot nearest our room -- which was a long, long walk from the front lobby. Seems that lot is subject to being flooded by high tides. Some important lights in...

Wonderful visit in beautiful Mill Valley! The hotel staff(Joanne Forame and Erica Ramirez) was exceptionally helpful. Our room was great and the breakfast was very delicious! The hot tub was such a great way to relax during our trip. We will definitely be visiting again, and looking forward to seeing friendly staff!
