5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

I could not say enough good things about this hotel. It is clean, staff provides exceptional service, and the price could easily be a hundred dollars more a night with all it offers. They have bikes to ride on the shore, fresh baked cookies, room services discounts, free breakfast, free wi-fi, and nice views of the bay. It has been... More

When friends or relatives come to visit I house them at the Marina Inn. It's clean, comfortable and affordable and within five minutes from the Oakland airport. Great restaurants located close by and a driving range and 18 holes of golf right down the street. It's a great place.

This is a great hotel within minutes of Oakland Airport. It is overlooking a marina about 5 miles from the airport (you don't even have to go on 880 to get to the airport - a real plus!). Area as you approach the hotel is a little sketchy, but it improves, so don't panic! Customer service was outstanding. Milk and... More

What a fabulous find. Overlooks pretty Marina and next to park and golf course. The staff and all facilities are excellent. We approached with some trepidation as the nearby town is a bit run down but the hotel is a jewel. Top marks to all for making our four day stay so comfortable.

The Marina Inn in San Leandro, Ca. was an excellent choice to stay, while on business; not far from the Oakland Airport. The view was fantastic, the marina, airport (In the background) made for great mornings and unbelievable evenings. Great continental breakfast and friendly staff.

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!

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.
