The Marina Inn is a comfortable hotel that does not charge an arm an a leg to stay in a waterfront location on the San Francisco Bay. Free breakfast, nice rooms, free Wifi, cookies and milk and at night, free bikes to ride the trails along the Bay, and a pleasant staff. What is there not to like? This is... More

Have been staying here on trips to California for 14 years. Love the location (near Oakland Airport), the Marina views, and friendly atmosphere. My favorite breakfast is the baby Belgian waffles with strawberries and whipped cream.

This was a very nice hotel for my family of 5 to stay while we visited the San Francisco area for 3 days. It is located in San Leandro across the bay from San Francisco. Although we planned to spend most of our time in downtown San Fran, hotel prices on that side of the bay were 3-5 times higher... More

Set in a lovely maritime environment, this inn is a wonderful surprise with the views that greet you when you get off the freeway and continue down a long road to get here. It has been called a hidden gem and had a 4.8 of 5 on TA when I was checking it out and I can understand why. The... More

We stayed at the Marina Inn following a trip of the California coast and before flying home from the Oakland Airport. It is truly a gem. Although the hotel rooms themselves are really nothing special (although they do have nice views and small balconies), it is the attention to detail, the staff, and the amenities that make this a special...

I already oozed love for this place on expedia but will repeat here. From arrival to departure we had the perfect experience. Have never been to a hotel with such friendly, helpful and considerate staff. The beds, room, location, breakfast, shuttle service were all wonderful. Took the BART into San Francisco with Tim's help. Was picked up at 7pm on... More

We stayed at the Marina Inn during one of my Wife's business trips to the area. It took numerous attempts over the last few months to get a room there due to the Marina Inn's popularity, especially with business personnel and conventions. The location at the San Leandro Marina, and near the Golf Course makes for a very peaceful and... More

Our experience was very good. Rooms clean and comfortable. The breakfast is pretty good (I usually hate them). There is a beautiful park right next to it with a fabulous bay view. The hotel provides bikes (for free) so you can ride around the park and the bay. Very kind people.

Being close to Oakland where one can take the ferry to the Fisherman's Wharf area and with numerous restaurants at Oakland, The Marina Inn of San Leandro is ideally situated. Why go through traffic to go to downtown SF when you have the beautiful scenery and the comfort of a ferry. The hotel is clean, has friendly staff and recommended... More

The Marina Inn is a wonderful spot on SF Bay. Close to walking/biking trails, with a large park nearby. We used the free bicycles that are available for guest use, and followed the asphalt path along the ocean for several miles. The hotel is showing its age a little, but it's still a comfortable, clean and elegantly classic facility. The... More
