While San Leandro is not a usual destination location, this hotel has much to offer. There are two excellent restaurants close by, free transportation to Bart, free breakfast, free wifi and easy Bay Area access. There is also a golf course across the street with great driving range.

Friendly and fast check-in. Clean and comfy rooms. Bathroom nice with a huge shower. Easy access car park. Everything you want for a quick stop motel / hotel. Reception staff were also very helpful with advice on getting to places. Free cookies and milk a nice little perk. Their in-room service is provided by a restaurant next door, which is... More

It’s not a fancy hotel but it’s always clean, comfortable with great customer service. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. The continental breakfast has a large assortment of items. It’s on the bay and next to a park and restaurants. Just a short walk down the street is a walking path that I always feel safe while walking in... More

Tucked away in the marina/harbor area is this little gem of an inn. With a great restaurant next door and a beautiful view of the bay I was more than satisfied with my stay here. Make sure you count for a little congestion on the main arteries getting in and out of Bay Area.

We were welcomed warmly and even shortly after noon our room with balcony and view on the marina was prepared. Enjoyed a ride on their bikes on all the trails and the Spa and pool which were outside and heated. Great breakfast with waffles, fruits and eggs. Thanks for the late checkout!

The rooms are your average hotel room. Very small bathrooms that have been updated and good water pressure. The staff were some of the nicest I met while in San Fran. They went the extra mile in directions, taxi companies and saving me my favorite cookie. They had a great -free- hot breakfast with Belgium waffles, eggs , bagels, patisseries... More

The staff is very nice. I'm 6'5" and got a handicapped room. Bummer. The AC unit in the room was loud and I had to insert a magazine into the grill to get the noisy vibration to stop. The ice machine on my floor was out of order so I had to go upstairs to get ice. Rooms were on... More

We recently came home from a short vacation to the Bay area with my brother to celebrate our birthday (we're twins). We stayed at the Marina Inn on San Francisco Bay and it couldn't have been nicer. The property is well maintained, the beds were very comfortable and the staff quite accommodating. It overlooks a marina and has 2 restaurants... More

Great room, thoughtful amenities, great breakfast, and awesome staff. Will be back! The complimentary breakfast has more than the usual fare, and the breads were fresh - nice! Keurig in the rooms, along with wine glasses and a bottle opener/wine opener. Great balcony and view of the marina, walk to two nice restaurants, pool and hot tub...

My husband and I just recently visited my daughter, daughter-in-law, and our new grandson in San Leandro. We stayed at The Marina Inn for a week. It's located just 4 miles from their home so the location was perfect. It's very pretty inside and outside. Our room was clean and comfy. as was the bed. The staff was very helpful... More
