Read the negative reviews for Cavallo Point. They will give you a more balanced view of the place than the over-enthousiastic ones. Yes, being by the Golden Gate bridge is fantastic. Yes the view is nice. But, do not mistake this operation for a luxury hotel. It is not one and shouldn't pretend to be one. It is a remodelled... More

Considering this is the sister hotel to Post Ranch Inn, the two could not be more different.This is a vast complex of ex military buildings and it is completely devoid of character or personality. On arrival the reception person at the pull in was unenthusiastic. The reception inside was poor, with the receptionist missing off important elements of our stay... More

when in San Francisco Cavallo Point is one of my favorite places to stay. It's an historic place that has been converted into an Leeds certified hotel. I have stayed several times and have been in all types of rooms - Some are noisier than others (the officer's sleeping quarters as opposed to the newly built rooms) - but the... More

Lovely enclave of renovated officers' quarters converted to private second story suites. The location is quiet; food at the restaurant is delicious; spa services are terrific. Look on-line for a 20 percent discount for spa services mid-week. The sleeping quarters were lovely. On the second day, no maid service came to our room. The location is hikeable to Sausalito, but...

I just discovered this hidden treasure right in my own backyard. This fabulous hotel/spa/restaurant is the former historic officer's quarters and lodge on the tip of Marin where it meets the Golden Gate Bridge. We stayed in one of the new buildings (vs. historic) and enjoyed a gorgeous modern designed room that included all the usual accoutrements. The spa is... More

My wife and I went to Cavallo Point for the 2nd leg of our 10yr wedding anniversary. We spent the first half at the Terranea in Los Angeles. It was probably unfortunate we went from the Terranea first, but we expected the Cavallo Point to be the more relaxing of the 2. Unfortunately it was not and simply because of... More

We started our trip off together in Lake Tahoe, which is Heaven on earth, where we started on our honeymoon thirty years ago. After our ten day stay we traveled SW through Grass Valley and arrived at Cavallo Point Lodge located at Murray Circle, Sausalito, CA, Friday June 27, 2014.

Stayed at Cavallo Point for a quick 24 hour birthday getaway. Great rooms, views and really friendly service. Particularly nice for San Francisco Bay Area residents because despite the familiar Golden Gate bridge views, the resort feels a long way away. We stayed in a modern room, might like to try one of the historic ones next time. Apparently they... More

One of our guilty pleasures and a place to love yourself and splurge. Contemporary rooms with a view of the bay and golden gate bridge hard to match. Week here with dinner at Murray Circle and a day or two at the spa will set you back about $5000 but well worth rest, relaxation, and views of this historic hotel.... More
