The staff here is very friendly, it is very clean, great continental breakfast, bicycles to ride for free (great path around the bay), and cookies at 5 PM! Everyone here goes out of their way for you to make sure you have a pleasant experience.

The hotel is much older than it looks in the pictures but it's well kept. I was a bit disappointed in our room since the description stated that you could see the water and this room supposedly had beautiful views. Our room overlooked a parking lot (no water to be seen) and the Double Queen on my reservation was, in... More

I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful, this included the front desk, the shuttle driver, the housekeeper, and the person setting up the breakfast. The room was... More

We came in straight from the airport, requested a different room (with a patio) - got it right away. Nice and friendly people at the reception, nothing to complain about really. Maybe a bit too pricy, but it was summer time.

Breakfast was always good, and having the cookies out for the afternoon was a nice treat for the kids. The halls of the hotel have a lot of strange turns, I never got fully oriented to the layout of the 3 days we were there, not that it's that big of a deal.

Tienie, We are glad to hear you enjoyed taking BART into San Francisco. Isn't that better than wasting time driving in an area you are unfamiliar with. Next time you visit us you will have to unwind by going for a nice bike ride around the marina. Thank you for sharing your stay with others. Kind regards, Janise More

This is a wonderful place to stay when visiting San Francisco. Staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. Shuttle service available to BART station. Breakfast limited choice but fresh! boiled eggs and fresh fruit (so not sweetened!). LOVE THE FRESHLY BAKED COOKIES. With a family of 4 we would certainly visit this hotel again.
