Blown away by this stylish cute hotel. The staff was so incredibly warm and inviting- the rooms were darling with little pot belly stoves and nicely scented eucalyptus toiletries. FREE Napa wines and yummy cheese all afternoon and nice. Warm cookies! Free! Wifi! Free! Full blown breakfast! Free! Beautiful surroundings overlooking the estuary. AMAZING! Incredible value especially if you know...

Located just off the 101 in Mill Valley and with a nice garden and terrace views of the Bay, this is a gem of a hotel. Friendly and accommodating staff, well appointed rooms, free parking, 15 minutes from the City, 5 minutes from Mill Vally town center, all at great prices. The complimentary breakfast is healthy and sumptuous, with a...

I loved this hotel. Everything was clean and comfortable and the staff was really friendly. Great location too. The freeway is right there but you don't hear it because the rooms face the other direction. Also, it's so rare to get a "real" breakfast in American hotels.

This hotel has a fantastic location - just 15 minutes into SF. The breakfast was amazing. Unfortunately the rooms could use some repairs, specifically our bathroom was falling apart. I do recommend this hotel because so many other places near here are ridiculously overpriced. Other than the minor repairs needed, the hotel is nice, clean and the staff was good....

This was our family's third stay at the Acqua Hotel. The place never disappoints. From the clean, spacious rooms to the views... perfect every time! The convenience of location just can't be beat- just off the highway and near to restaurants and shops (at the Strawberry Village down the road). We look forward to breakfast every morning and the cookies...

This Christmas we decided to treat ourselves and enjoy a relaxing time at a hotel. We had the junior suite with a view of Mt Tam from our balcony. The room was clean and comfy. The breakfast buffet was outstanding. They had everything from bacon& eggs to waffles. The front desk personnel were so helpful in planning our stay. Bicycles...

We booked a junior suite at this hotel for our wedding day. We used the charming lobby with its fireplace for a champagne toast after the ceremony, and the front desk staff gave us some small boxes of delicious chocolates! The room was lovely, with view of Richardson Bay from the balcony. The fireplace (with a Duraflame log ready to...

After a terrible experience at another hotel in the area, we were placed in the Acqua Hotel during the busy period between Christmas and New Years. We entered into the lobby exhausted and irritated, with two tired kids in tow and honestly were just looking for a bed for the night. Were we ever surprised! We had some of the...
