“What a neat place!”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

This was our first experience with a bed and breakfast, and it was so nice. The staff, Patti and Diane, were so very friendly and helpful. Our first night was certainly less-than-perfect: We had an upstairs, way-in-the-back room. I had actually gotten the last room when I made the reservations. The bed wasn't very comfy, room small, very noisy alley below the window. This just wasn't the room for two senior citizens with bad backs and knees! When I mentioned this to Patti at breakfast, she told us right then that she was moving us downstairs to a king room. She showed us the huge room with king bed right near the front desk and we immediately fell in love with it. We went off for some sightseeing, and the staff moved our belongings to the new room for us. Wow, you just don't get service like that from some big chain hotel.

And the best thing of all...Patti's breakfasts are to die for. Homemade muffins of every description, homemade quiche, tons of fresh fruit and, of course, the chance to get to know Patti. Also, Diane was quick to help any time we needed anything.

Thanks, Patti and Diane, for making our visit so pleasant.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room away from the alley! Also, be aware some of the rooms do have to share ba...

Very lovely place, and nice friendly staff. Easy access to public transportation. The breakfast buffet is very good and they keep the place charmingly decorated. I recommend staying at this bed and breakfast.

I put my my in the Inn when she visited us recently. This Inn is one class act from A to Z. The front desk service was incredible. The room was spotless and the bedding and bed so comfie. The breakfast was unparalled wit homemade quiche, frittata, zuccini bread made from front desk/cook Patty's garden!, and a incredibly comprehensive continental breakfast. Oh, and the location cannot b beat---in dowtown San Anselmo next to Comfort's. Treat yourself!

Room Tip: Enjoy sunny San Anselmo!

Visited my family in San Anselmo in August 2012 and had the happy experience of staying here. I will definitely stay here again. Swapped recipes. Brekkie included in room price and was yummy. Situated in a very pretty town and lots of things to see and do. One very happy Aussie.

My husband and I live in Santa Rosa which is about 40 miles from San Anselmo. We stayed at the Inn to avoid a late night drive home. We had a lovely room overlooking San Anselmo Ave.. The Inn is very comfortable and it feels like a country home in Italy or France. We had a beautiful "continental breakfast". However I don't think anyone can compete with Patti and her delicious quiche. We had so many choices of fruit and breads, cereals and there was even a basket of oranges from Patti's tree.
I can not recomend this wonderful Inn enough. I grew up in San Anselmo and It is a great way to see the town and it is close to San Francisco and the Wine Country.
I highly recomend the San Anselmo Inn for one night or an extended stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We will be back.

We have stayed here a number of times and have found it a very fine experience. This time was a reall challenge as my husband and I became sick with an intestinal virus. The staff was so kind to us providing both caring advice (we are from Wash, DC) and services. We recommend SAI highly.

A lovely inn tucked into the center of San Anselmo. We stayed here to be in the vicinity of San Francisco without paying the higher prices in the city. Our room was quiet, comfortable, and had a few extras that would have made staying here a few nights—more than our one--easy and affordable. It had a small kitchen area with microwave, refrigerator and table. But the most outstanding feature of staying here was the complimentary breakfast—fruits, rolls, quiche, cereals, and more. Just outstanding.
