Every couple should spend a few nights in Sausalito, and The Inn Above Tide is by far the best base for your visit. Although centrally located for an easy walk to restaurants, shops, and the ferry, the hotel is quiet day and night. Sausalito tourists apparently don't generate as many decibels as Key West tourists. Views of the City and... More

Sausalito is one of my favorite places on planet Earth, and The Inn Above Tide is the absolute best place to stay while visiting. The waterfront views were phenomenal, and the rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated. Wine and cheese served daily. Great service: helpful, friendly staff who will attend to your needs with a smile on their faces. Substantial... More

This place is amazing. The setting, the staff, the views, the rooms are all above reproach. We came here to celebrate our 46th anniversary and we couldn't have chosen a better place. The rooms are luxuriant, it was within walking distance of several good restaurants. We would definitely return and book a longer stay...definitely worth the money.

When we turned the corner and saw The Inn Above Tide--I knew that we had found a fabulous spot. The views from these hotel rooms are spectacular. The hotel is in a great location right off the main street in Sausalito and right at the ferry docks. This would be a fantastic romantic hotel for any occasion. Before I wrote... More

From your bed you can look out the expansive windows and see San Francisco at night you see the Garideli sign all lit up then the fishing boats came by it was quite the place. There are only a few shops in Sausalito so this hotel is the only reason to go yo this town.

Right on San Francisco Bay, a short walk to boats to the Ferry Bldg and Fisherman's Wharf, cheap parking, an excellent breakfast and free internet service. Not much more to ask for. An excellent alternative to a San Francisco hotel unless you're part of a conference.

A must and highly recommended, All comfortable rooms with a stunning view; exceptional service from Joe and Daniel at reception; the most delicious breakfast - fresh granola, berries and freshly squeezed orange juice; wine and cheese in the evening. My husband wanted to stay on forever!

We stayed on the 1st floor in the Tidal Suite. It felt like a houseboat (without the motion), as we were right off the water. The room was fabulous, the service was great and we location, location, location. Restaurants, bars, shopping and the ferry were all just steps away from our front door. The room was spacious. Large windows and... More

Truly one of the most romantic oceanside hotels in the San Francisco Bay area. The rooms are very well appointed and each room is ocean front with a view of the city as well as Alcatraz and the Bay Bridge in the distance. Most rooms have a fireplace and a balcony which works great for the cool evenings looking over... More
