This was our 7th visit to the marina over the past few years and as always it did not disappoint. The location is wonderful right by the bay. There are wonderful walking paths and also small vessels that you can rent to paddle about if you wish. Two excellent restaurants are right next door but most of all the Inn... More

Generally a great experience. Close to a lot of things including San Francisco, without paying the exorbitant in city rates or the parking fees. The rooms are great and a nice bay front to walk and wonder on with a small park next door. Hotel rooms face the bay docks for the most part. Love the fresh cookie treats for... More

My husband I always wanted to visit California,so for our 50th anniversary we finally made it to San Francisco(we live in Rochester NY). When I was looking for a reasonable place to stay near San Francisco, I came across the Marina Inn. When I starting reading the rave reviews, I decided to book our room there. The rates were very...

This is my home away from home when going there on business for the last 15 years. Super nice and consistent staff. Most of the staff have been there 10 years or more which goes to show that they like the place too!!

In a super busy Dec. 24th, the Marina Inn along with Hawaiian Airlines made a bad situation so much better. We had a chance to sleep, the room wasn't fancy but who needs that when you get clean, well stocked with everything you need to freshen up, friendly, helpful and kind as part of your hotel experience! We were a... More

Stayed here to be closer to the airport but away from the airport noise and traffic. Nice location on the marina with a nice restaurant next door. There is a great park next door to chill out at, or maybe take a run along the water. No stores within walking distance. Complimentary breakfast options in the morning were average.There are...

We stayed on a Sunday night so we could avoid rush hour traffic to the airport the next morning. We had requested a room on their top floor with a view of the marina. Upon arrival we discovered they had reserved our room on the first floor. We began discussing if we should accept the room they reserved which was... More

A nice hotel to stay at that is close to the airport. The employees were very helpful and courteous. Two restaurants are close by for your convenience. Our room overlooked the bay and was in a very quiet area. Bicycles were available at no cost.

It calls itself the Marina in on San Francisco Bay - face it, San Leandro just isn't that attractive anymore. Its convenient to Oakland Airport, it's clean, and the area around it is relatively safe by San Leandro/Oakland standards. Rooms are roomy and clean - staff is very friendly and accomodating. At least one good restaurant (Horatios) is within walking... More

Lied about not charging credit card to hold room - had emergency medical situation and heartless thieves charged for room never reserved or stayed in - then blamed me to believing their posted policies - DO NOT STAY IN THIS DIVE OR TRUST THEM WITH CREDIT CARD INFO!!!
