This hotel location has easy access to freeways and is close to so much. The hotel is old, but clean and staff is friendly. Nice warm pool and have bikes you can borrow, nice trails around the bay! only minutes away from the city, but you don't have all the people

We were a group on 21 travelling on Harleys for 3 weeks, some hotels were prepared and dealt with us very well, others, like HIE mill Valley were disappointing. Expensive, average service and rooms that smelt of smoke. Not particularly impressed.

This is a perfect location for a get away to Muir Woods. This is an older hotel but I think it was just updated. They need to have an expert come in and show them how to polish a room and not just wipe it with a rag.

I am very surprised that this hotel can still be called a Holiday Inn.
