“I love this hotel; it's my go-to hotel in Marin County”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

This is a winner for several reasons, the rooms are nice and comfortable, all look out on Mt. Tam and the Richardson Bay shoreline. There's a breakfast room with a huge deck, and it's a great place to start the day. The people are super nice and helpful. There's a nice bowl of green apples on the front desk and a spread of fruit and cheeses with wines every late afternoon. It's an easy hop into the city, as the hotel is located on 101, slightly north of Sausalito.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from 101 if you want to open your windows.

The hotel was rasy to go as it was beside the motorway, and you can get yourself to SF very quick for the same reason. The room was clean, but there were not a kettle in it. The breakfast was nice and there were also a self-service coffee/tea/hot chocolate point nearby the reception. The walkways were atleast mostly in outsideair.

My husband and I had an opportunity to stay in a water view junior suite with fireplace room at this lovely hotel. We were on a trip celebrating our 30th anniversary. While this hotel is located just off the 101 it was surprisingly quiet in our room. It was centrally located to all of the things we wanted to do. The room was modern and comfortable with a very cozy bed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good but it would be nice if they had a few additional items such as almond or soy milk for folks who can't do dairy. The location on Richardson Bay was beautiful. I will definitely plan on staying here again when in the bay area.

Room Tip: Upper suites are quiet, not sure about other rooms

This is a wonderful small hotel just a little off Hiway 101 near Mill Valley, north of San Francisco. It features modern comfortable rooms, a very good full breakfast buffet, wine and cheese in the early evenings, and even a couple of bikes to borrow. Very friendly and unpretentious. Only minor negative, as far as I know, they do not belong to any frequent traveler organization. That would be good.

My wife and I can't say enough good things about our two night stay at the Acqua. The room, the view across the lake, the wine tasting, the natural light through out the hotel, the great breakfast, the accommodating staff, the relaxed feeling about the place all made for a great stay. With easy access to San Francisco I would highly recommend staying here rather than in town.

Room Tip: We had a top floor West view and it was perfect.

Its location off highway 101 made side trips easy, and the hotel offered first-rate accommodations and great value. We liked the modern decor, the morning views of Richardson Bay and Mount Tamalpais, the included breakfast, and the free Wi-Fi. Add in free parking, coffee and cookies, and you have a nearly perfect location for our visits to Sonoma, Marin, Sausalito, and Tibouron.

The hotel was beautiful and very chic, it is high class all the way. The rooms were very nice, roomy and super clean. The grounds and view were stunning. The only downside to this hotel is that it faces the highway and the frontage road is right outside the door.
