“Great location, reasonable choice for a budget traveler.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2011

I stayed here one night when down in Mill Valley for a high school reunion. The location at the southern entrance to Mill Valley is very convenient to Mill Valley and the road to Muir Woods. This is an older property, but when I was here, I found it clean and comfortable. I was happy with my room, and found it to be a reasonable choice for travelers on a budget. The breakfast is indeed basic, and there is no breakfast room, but again, this is a budget hotel.

This hotel is more like a trashy apartment complex than a hotel. Our room had a full kitchen that was locked, but unclean, rusty appliances were visible through the breakfast bar. The smoke detector was not operable. A metal furnace was dirty and dented; walls and doors needed paint. We paid $180. The only reason we did not leave after seeing the property and room was because Mill Valley and the surrounding area was fully booked. Avoid this hotel like the plague.

It was a nightmare! This place is a dump! We spent $100 for this horrible horrible place! We couldn't find it and called the owner for directions. She gave us totally wrong directions, no kidding.
It was a dirty miserable place. If we only could, we would have left right away but it was too late and we were so tired, we couldn't move!

No breakfast room to eat in, get your "food" at the checkin counter and take it to your room. No alarm clocks or coffee pots in room. Paper thin walls, creaky floors, beds up on metal boxes that are quite noisy if you hit them with your foot. Room did not smell good. Wake your host to get a cup of instant coffee. I look for places with free internet and breakfast, so I can work on the road. Room looked pretty clean and decor was nice. But then there is the large in-room kitchen with the padlock on the door... Bizarre. Would not take a lot to bring this hotel up to American standards. I would love to add a photo of the dumpy storage building and garbage dump out back, but don't have my thumb drive with me...

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else unless.

Recently returned from a road trip to Northern California, Oregon and Washington. First stop was Americas Best Value Inn in Mill Valley, CA.. The location was great. Easy to locate and easy access from Hwy. 1. The room was a little different from most of the places my wife and I have stayed in. It was a large room but had a back door that led out
to the other side of the facility onto the back parking lot. The room and bathroom were clean, television was fairly new, the beds comfortable and even though the room was fronting a very busy highway the sound level was surprisingly good. The only negative points were the lack of in room coffee service and the noise of stomping feet from the room above us. Very hard to relax or sleep when every step from above can be heard. The facility needed a some updating and was a little more expensive than one would expect.
