True to it's name, the location is right at the marina with a view of the boats. Pleasant place for an early morning or evening stroll. There is no external noise and I got a great night's sleep. Free continental breakfast with pastries, make your own waffles, yogurt and fruit. I had a basic room in good condition with large... More

After walking a 13-mile day, from Jack London Square in Oakland, the Marina Inn was a super spot to lay-over for the night. Located on the San Francisco Bay Trail, the hotel itself is attractive: inviting fireplace in the entry, well-maintained, and our room overlooked the marina - beautiful! Room was comfortable with a nice easy-chair and ottoman, modern, stylish... More

Absolutely no complaints! We read a lot of reviews before choosing this hotel and this had the highest ratings. We were not disappointed. They offer a lot of little amenities that you don't get at other hotels and the staff was wonderful. Will definitely stay here again on our next trip to San Francisco!

My husband and I stayed here for our 6 year wedding anniversary. I know, why San Leandro? When we first started dating (11 years ago) my husband lived in San Leandro so when we were younger we always said we would stay here. We normally go to Las Vegas but we go so often I needed a break. I am... More

This is my second review of the Marina Inn on San Francisco Bay. This past trip wasn't as great as the first, mostly due to the room location. I ended up in room 123 which is just around the corner from the lobby. There's a lot of external sounds that find their way into this room. Mechanical sounds (possibly elevator),... More

I've stayed here a few times and my last stay was the best. I upgraded to a bay view room and it was well worth the minimal charge. My own balcony facing the bay with a great view. The bed and linens were great too, not to mention having a keurig, free bottled water, microwave and a fridge. Great simple... More

Phenomenal spot. Great staff. The hotel is 30 years old and was totally redecorated 10 years ago...yet I would have thought 2-3 years ago. We checked in at 10 p.m. yet were treated as if we had checked in at 10 a.m. The night crew was fantastic and funny. The room was beautifully decorated and equipped with a microwave and... More

Wonderful stay here for a half marathon run on Valentines Day. The hotel was tastefully decorated for Valentines Day. There was a small lounging area with comfy chairs and a fireplace adjacent to the reception desk. Reception desk had red apples and warm cookies and milk when we arrived, AND very nice and professional staff. Our room was extremely clean.... More

Beautiful spot. Friendly staff. Lovely breakfast. There was a misunderstanding and it was handled with absolute diplomacy, no fuss whatsoever. A beautiful nature walk and park next to Hotel. Horatio's restaurant a little expensive......but worth a visit. One of the best places we stayed in our 5 weeks in the USA. Wished we had more time there. Could have an... More

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.
