This is a great little hotel on the water in Tiburon. Best rooms are on the second floor on the even-numbered side...but all are nice. Comfortable, well-equipped, with a fireplace in the room. Great deck out back for all guests to share, looking out over the water. What makes this hotel especially good are the staff - so pleasant. Great... More

The location is amazing. It is right on the water and looks across the bay to San Francisco. The ferry to SF is right there and gives you an amazing view of both Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. The rooms are spacious and clean. The bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfasts were delivered promptly and were very good with... More

Due to an event in San fran we stumbled upon tiburon to stay for the weekend. Unbelievable!!!! Waters edge has by far the best customer service we have ever encountered. All the staff bent over backwards to not only accomodate any request but offered additional items we didn't think of. Richelle even left us a note to make sure we... More

Having to go to a funeral is always a sad affair but thanks to my sister-in-law, Water's Edge in Tiburon made us smile. A little gem on the water. The staff was particularly accommodating and kind. I would definitely go back!

To me, what makes the difference between a good and a great hotel experience is the little unexpected things...the things that aren't required, but that are there to make your stay more pleasant. Things like a fireplace in the room, wine and cheese in the lobby, a delicious complimentary breakfast delivered to your room at your preferred time, morning coffee... More

This hotel was just wonderful! We did decide to treat ourselves as it did not come cheap but it was wel lworth it. Out room overlooked the Bay and San Francisco and we could see the lights twinkling at night. Cheese and wine was served each evening and we sat on the deck partaking which was lovely. The bed was...

From the front ... not that exciting .... but from the back deck a view of the Bay & SF superior to many!! Choose a room on the ferry (East) side of the building, for a better continuation of your SF view. On the Sam's (West) side a very nice view of the boat club & Belvedere Island, but also... More

Stayed here with three other friends on what has become our annual trip to S.F. to see a Giants game. We love the city but wanted to stay conveniently close. Not in it. The Waters Edge will now be our place. It is situated in the town of Tiburon just north of the Golden Gate bridge. The view is amazing... More

For the second year running we have used the Waters Edge for a week-long corporate retreat with up to 20 attendees. The hotel staff provided us with outstanding service, attentive to every detail and with the welcoming ambience of a small, family run hotel. The hotel location is terrific, close to the ferry with great views over the bay and... More
