Excellent launching pad for the bay area; I stay here on my way in and out of San Francisco and Point Reyes National Seashore. Comfortable, close to restaurants, public transport and spas for a mini-break.

Short Visit to San Anselmo

The town is interesting. Several very nice small restaurants. Everyone at the Inn and in the town were very friendly. My room was comfortable, but I had difficulty connecting to wi-fi from inside my room. The shower offered alternating hot and cold water with occasional intermittent periods of "just right". Very good breakfast.

Very cute and comfortable.

This place was wonderful. Good food and close to some cute stores. It was a nice break from our NH weather. I would definitely come back again. Such a great staff too.

Had an awesome stay of several nights at the San Anselmo Inn

Absolutely perfect location and the in-house breakfast can't be beat! Highly recommend this charming and funky place for a stay. Feels very European - and that's a good thing :)

A Wonderful Experience

My boyfriend and I had such a fantastic experience at the San Anselmo Inn. Our evening began with a Valentine's Day dinner at the connecting restaurant, Valenti & Co. The food was amazing, and we were certainly ready to rest after our big meal. Everyone who worked at the Inn was so kind and considerate - it was really the people who made our stay special. And breakfast provided in-house the next day was divine! I would have paid good money for that continental breakfast if it wasn't included! Thank you for such a wonderful stay.

This is sweet, charming place. The staff was warm and helpful. The room was nothing special but clean and suited our needs. The breakfast in the morning was a lovely and delicious surprise.

Having grown up in San Anselmo, it was very nice to have a place that makes you feel so welcome. The San Anselmo Inn is right in the middle of downtown. Clean rooms. Great staff. Nice breakfast included. Some rooms are small so upgrade if available. This was not like staying in a hotel, it was more like coming home. There were movie nights in the park and nice shops and restaurants all within walking distance. We will definitely return to the San Anselmo Inn.
