Comfortable bed, OK breakfast, nice shower, ideal for people who will not spend a lot of time on the room. Affordable option to visit San Francisco area, 20 minutes away from downtown. Parking available and easy to find (close to highway) Downside: not very friendly staff.

We travel each Labor Day weekend to attend the Sausalito Art Festival. As artists, budget is a huge consideration. In an effort to save money, we've tried many budget hotels in Mill Valley and Corte Madera. They were all disgusting so we decided to pay a little more for the Holiday Inn Express. Great decision!!! Pet friendly, and recently upgraded,...
