We stayed at the Marina Inn for two nights during our Gideon event, The Oakland East Bay Blitz. The staff was very caring and helpful for all our needs. The accommodations were comfortable and the Continental Breakfast was outstanding. We are thankful that we had the privilege of staying at this beautiful hotel. Janet & Joel

This is my second stay here, first time for a week, this time for a month. It feels like my home away from home. Staff are very friendly and eager to assist, and genuinely seem to enjoy what they do. Several colleagues have stayed also and I know they like it too. They operate at around 90% occupancy so must... More

Went for our anniversary. There is a nice path next to the hotel you can walk along the bay and see the sunset. Our room was facing the water front and was a great place to enjoy some wine on the balcony. Television is good but nothing in hd. Free WiFi is a good plus.

This was our first hotel on a 5 week tour of California and Vegas and it was by far the best!! We phoned after exiting arrivals and a minibus was there to collect us within 10 minutes. We arrived at the hotel and the kids loved the cookies and milk waiting for them. Check-in was quick and easy and we... More

The location is lovely, next to the Marina with great views on the bay and lovely sunsets. And yet no more than half an hour drive by car to downtown SF (should there be no traffic jams). Rooms are spacious and provided with all necessary equipment. Bed is great. Staff is very friendly. Breakfast is OK, if you like your... More

The lobby was lovely. They offer apples during the day and cookies with milk at night. The staff always acknowledged when they walked by. The breakfast (includes w our rate) was wonderful! Waffles, fruit, yogurt, muffins, pastries, toast, bagels, and cereal! The room was clean and large. I think we were near a laundry room because we did feel the... More

Staying on the bay side was a wonderful way to enjoy the evening. The room was comfortable and it was fun to view the sail boats. The staff was very friendly and the continental breakfast was more than adequate.

This hotel is located right next to a Marina and offers great views and walks around the hotel. It has a gym, small pool and internet areas with printing facilities. You get a really good buffet breakfast included and cookies and milk in the afternoon which are great for when you come back from a busy day. Complementary papers are... More

We have stayed in this hotel during our visit to San Francisco. It is 1 hour away from the city itself by car. The staff was friendly. The breakfast was ok. not so many options. for example no scrambled eggs. The room which we had stayed was a two bed bedroom and it has no view, not even a balcony.... More

Everyone else does a great job explaining the perks of the Inn. So without spending too much time repeating how wonderful the warm cookies and milk are at 5 pm, the free bicycles to take a nice bike ride along the bay, the use of the heated pool and hot tub, the cleanliness of the Inn, the convenience of great...
