Tucked away in the redwoods just off Mill Valley's town square, the heart of the quaint little town, this little hotel offers a beautifully restful experience at the heart of Marin County and within very easy reach of San Francisco itself. For us it has become a tradition to stay here for our first couple of nights after flying in long distance (inter-continental) to get over the jet-lag. The staff are very hospitable and helpful and you can be guaranteed a genuinely warm welcome and help with any problems.
Mill Valley itself is a wonderful contrast to the hassle and bustle of San Francisco, yet it is only about a ten minute drive north of the Golden Gate Bridge. And it's close to the harbour at Sausalito, with its waterfront restaurants etc (though Sausalito is somewhat 'touristy'), and, just over the hill and an easy drive through the road which winds over the outer slopes of Mount Tamalpais, the Pacific Ocean.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to anyone who appreciates quality.

Friendly staff to greet us. The property is well maintained. We had a large room with ceiling-to-floor windows, a downstairs work and rest area and a very comfortable bed and large bathroom upstairs. Hotel is located on Sausalito's main street and most of the rooms look out on the bay. The hotel also contains Poggi's, a classy restaurant that offers sidewalk seating.

"Great location, easy ferry access to downtown SF"
We really enjoyed Tiburon and The Water's Edge Hotel. It was a great way to visit San Francisco, based in the quiet town with easy ferry access to downtown SF. The hotel was great. The waterfront 2nd story deck was a treat that we used pretty much every day for happy hour, a place to eat our lunch, and just to relax before going out for dinner. All in all it was great. We did have a cleanliness issue our first day but the staff took care of it immediately. Our original room was on the first floor with no privacy and was very dark. We asked to be moved up to the 2nd floor and they were able to accommodate us. We got a bundled package with airfare and clearly had the worst pick of rooms at the Hotel, not really a fault of theirs, just a repercussion of a low cost bundle from Expedia. The 2nd floor room we did get was street view, which we actually kind of liked because it's a cool little walking town and it was fun to be in the middle of. The garbage truck doing its thing at 7:15 on consecutive mornings was a drag but again not the end of the world for us. The staff was great, we joined the free wine and cheese happy hour each night and totally enjoyed our 4 days in Tiburon, thanks to the Water's Edge.

Was surprised that the room was not serviced when we returned at 4 pm. They immediately cleaned it. but when we mentioned to desk clerk he asked if we requested room clean up. We did not realize we had to ask. That is different from any other hotel where we stayed.

We stayed here for one night on a road trip from Southern California up the coast to Portland. The property apparently is an old-style motel (parking outside the rooms) that has been completely redone. The room and bathroom were small by today's standards, and would not be suitable for any more than 2 people. The room had a nice little balcony overlooking the courtyard and that made the room seem larger. Bed was very comfortable and the room and bathroom were immaculate. A full breakfast is provided, but it is in a restaurant a short distance away that isn't open in the mornings. It's a very easy walk, but it might be a little bit of hassle in bad weather. The breakfast was really good, providing both hot and cold options and fresh fruit. Also the restaurant gave plenty of seating, which can sometimes be a problem in other hotels. We didn't use the internet, so I can't comment on that.

My sister lives within easy walking distance! We met daily to walk around the pond, watch the geese, ducks and other birds and interact with various other folks doing the same. The days were pleasant. We started out with a great breakfast. Hotel personnel were, for the most part, very pleasant and helpful. We felt catered to!
