if you want a stay outside of SF but within easy reach by car, bike or ferry - this is the place. Cozy and comfortable, it is like staying in a small town. Nicely appointed rooms, ours had a fireplace and skylight. Very comfortable beds, pillows and quality toiletries. (Bulgari). Magazines and books to while away the rainy days, and... More

Very good service and perfectly located right on the water. Sausalito is a great springboard for many day destinations. We enjoyed easy access to San Francisco, Berkeley & Sonoma during our stay. We booked a King Deluxe Fireplace Room and were given a spot on the third floor. The room was nondescript and small-ish, but we knew that going in.... More

My husband and I enjoyed two nights of our honeymoon at this lovely inn and just can't wait to go back. Everything was superb. They left little treats for us as honeymooners, gave us great suggestions for what to see and eat around town, and of course...the view was just incredible. We loved relaxing in the hotel room in the... More

We enjoyed the location, setting, views, service, wonderful breakfast buffet and overall serenity of this lovely boutique hotel. We'd definitely stay again. Low-key yet luxurious. Not sure if I'd stay here if I was a first time visitor to San Francisco, but since we're from the Bay Area and weren't planning on going into the City while in Sausalito, it... More

We had stayed previously at the Gables Inn here in Sausalito, and, wanting another "staycation" that would allow us to catch up on computer-work, we decided to see what made the Inn Above Tide costlier than the Gables. And we found out pretty quickly. The Gables is better in only two ways - they offer a better selection of snacks... More

This hotel is perfect, the location and the stunning views, along with the superb complimentary breakfast which for a small fee can be delivered to your room. In a word, perfect. I would definitely recommend.

to celebrate our daughters birthday we booked 2 rooms and were pleased with the lovely décor and dazzling view. Every room looks out at San Francisco, Alcatraz, Marin etc. We were pampered from greeting, valet parking, check-in, wine in room, turn down service and scrumptious large buffet breakfast. The rooms and beds were very comfortable, had complimentary water, binoculars, bicycles,... More

I first saw the Inn Above Tide last May when I visited Sausalito and thought to myself "wow, that looks like an beautiful place for a romantic getaway." Being single i wasn't sure when I'd get the chance to go. Wellll, I recently got to go with my girlfriend and it was even better than expected from start to finish.... More

We booked this hotel for the last three nights of our special Canada / US trip for our 25th wedding anniversary. It was a bit pricy, but after 25 years, I felt I had earned it. It was absolutely fantastic and worth every penny / dollar! The staff were attentive and very helpful, valet parking worked well. Our room was... More

A bit on the pricier side but it definitely exceeded our expectations. Everything about the hotel is just perfect. Probably the best hotel to stay while visiting San Francisco. Excellent view of bay from the room.
