Hotel Sausailto is perfect in every way! Directly across the bay from San Francisco sits this charming little hotel. Our room had a view of the park and the bay. We rode the ferry into San Francisco each morning. It is based right outside the door. We enjoyed relaxing on the ride back to Sausalito . Each morning we enjoyed... More

The Hotel Sausalito is located directly in the center of Sausalito, just steps from the ferry to San Francisco and within walking distance of great restaurants. The hotel is different from most, it is what would be considered a "boutique" hotel, no lobby and only 16 rooms. The front desk staff is very courteous and helpful, rooms were very clean... More

We returned to this hotel after having stayed during a trip 5 years ago. The hotel is quaint and the rooms are definitely small, but adequate. We appreciated the walk-in shower in the bathroom, the shaded "community" balcony, and the free bottles of water. The hotel is within walking distance of several restaurants, the public parking lot ($15/day) and the... More

This is a great hotel. The staff had been excellent, the rooms nice and clean, if a little small. We had a nice view of the bay and the park. Breakfast (pastry and coffee) at the cafe next door is included, as is parking in the municipal lot, with in and out privilege. This is important in Sausalito!. The staff... More

We enjoyed our stay in Sausalito - glad we stayed there rather than in San Francisco ... 2 minutes to get the ferry into the city, so easy access to local area. Our room was nice (201), at the back so over looking main street, mostly quiet, but noisy on the Monday morning with numerous trash lorries. No breakfast amenities,... More

Lovely hotel in Sausalito & more reasonably priced than the other options. Very cheerful decor, fantastic shower. Very clean. Rooms are European-style- on the smaller side by American standards & ours came with twin beds. But definitely enough room for two of us. Breakfast vouchers for pastry & coffee/tea are provided for breakfast at the cafe next door. Parking is... More

We stayed here as a last minute getaway and loved our choice! The hotel is adorable, homey and quaint! Our room had windows that opened to downtown, perfect for a breeze and to people watch. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful!! Absolutely perfect location walking distance to tons of cute shops and restaurants, right in the middle of downtown!... More

We stayed here for three nights, and really like the place. Yes the rooms are small by American standards. However, the hotel is comfortable, the staff friendly and accommodating. Everything works. And compared to the other properties in Sausalito, it is a relative bargain.

This was our first trip to California but we had read all the guides and reviews on Sausalito, and especially the hotel, so we kind of knew what to expect and we were not disappointed. The manager, Billy, is a fellow Scot with a rare sense of (Glasgow) humour. He and his daughter Gail went out of their way to... More

This was our first visit to Sausalito, and our first stop seconds after arriving at the ferry dock was the Hotel Sausalito. Our well-kept and impeccably clean room that was reminiscent of days gone by overlooked the park and fountain, but with fine views also of the bay and the people walking along the promenade. We will not quickly forget... More

Guests park in the City parking lot adjacent to the Hotel, for a fee of $15.00 per day. Family owned and run, gives Hotel Sausalito a personal touch. ... more   less
