Located on the Marina in San Leandro, with discounts at Horatios and El Torito for those that stay here. The staff are helpful. The front desk is the best! Family run operation means that they take good care of visitors. A generous breakfast is included for their guests, and I seem to want for nothing! They will even lend you... More

The best location to the Oakland airport! We stayed here two nights and loved the ease of getting to the Bart in order to explore Fisherman's Wharf ( free shuttle!), and to the A's baseball stadium. The hotel and adjacent restaurant were both clean and provided good food choices. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful--all the front desk staff... More

The Marina Inn is a comfortable hotel that does not charge an arm an a leg to stay in a waterfront location on the San Francisco Bay. Free breakfast, nice rooms, free Wifi, cookies and milk and at night, free bikes to ride the trails along the Bay, and a pleasant staff. What is there not to like? This is... More

Have been staying here on trips to California for 14 years. Love the location (near Oakland Airport), the Marina views, and friendly atmosphere. My favorite breakfast is the baby Belgian waffles with strawberries and whipped cream.

This was a very nice hotel for my family of 5 to stay while we visited the San Francisco area for 3 days. It is located in San Leandro across the bay from San Francisco. Although we planned to spend most of our time in downtown San Fran, hotel prices on that side of the bay were 3-5 times higher... More

Set in a lovely maritime environment, this inn is a wonderful surprise with the views that greet you when you get off the freeway and continue down a long road to get here. It has been called a hidden gem and had a 4.8 of 5 on TA when I was checking it out and I can understand why. The... More

We stayed at the Marina Inn following a trip of the California coast and before flying home from the Oakland Airport. It is truly a gem. Although the hotel rooms themselves are really nothing special (although they do have nice views and small balconies), it is the attention to detail, the staff, and the amenities that make this a special...

I already oozed love for this place on expedia but will repeat here. From arrival to departure we had the perfect experience. Have never been to a hotel with such friendly, helpful and considerate staff. The beds, room, location, breakfast, shuttle service were all wonderful. Took the BART into San Francisco with Tim's help. Was picked up at 7pm on... More

We stayed at the Marina Inn during one of my Wife's business trips to the area. It took numerous attempts over the last few months to get a room there due to the Marina Inn's popularity, especially with business personnel and conventions. The location at the San Leandro Marina, and near the Golf Course makes for a very peaceful and... More
