Location, Location, Location, this hotel has it! Was having difficulty finding a downtown San Francisco hotel due to some special event in the city and decided to stay across the Bay at this wonderful little hotel. The trip by ferry into/out of the city was quick and easy and the hotel is located steps away from the ferry dock. Friendly... More

My Husband and I had a rare chance at a one night getaway and this was our choice. The hotel sits on a tiny little road on Main Street of Tiburon. Love Marin county and love Tiburon even more my husband thought it looked like a fancy Mayberry. We were greeted by the front desk with a warm smile and... More

Stayed for a night on the way back from wine country. Everything about the hotels was top notch-Location, decor, rooms and service. We had a second floor room that led out to a beautiful deck overlooking the marina. Front desk agents were very helpful and went out of their way to accomodate everything we asked for, from ice buckets to... More

The staff at Waters Edge was unbelievable. The rate was much better than I would have gotten at the Tiburon Lodge and my room had a wonderful view. Each evening they provide wine/cheese and fruit by the fire. The bikes are within easy reach and they allowed me full use of their conference room so I could meet with my... More

The Water's Edge truly has the best of the bay area at its doorstep. Tiburon is a wonderful, laid back community with lots of great places to walk and enjoy the beauty of the bay. Views of Angel Island, San Francisco and the Golden Gate are all possible at or near this nice, boutique hotel. We traveled in late March... More

Here's a hotel whose rack rate is substantially mitigated by its amenities. True, breakfast is served in room with only limited choices. But the homemade granola, greek yogurt and fruit cup, served with juice, milk and good coffee, are both tasty and substantial. That same coffee, as well as tea, iced water and fresh apples, are available throughout the day... More

We have stayed all over the city of San Francisco and chose to stay on the other side of the bridge as an alternative this time. We chose the Waters Edge based on the great reviews and were overall happy with our choice. The hotel is located on the tiny Main St. of Tiburon and is surrounded by cute shops... More

The hotel has 23 rooms. This allows the staff, like Mike and Jeff to be very attentive to the customers. The view of San Francisco from the back deck was beautiful at night. Great complimentary room delivered breakfasts. The rooms were clean, and the bed was very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again. As an aside, you can take... More

When I have business or pleasure in the SF area this is my place of choice. Easy ferry ride to town and not far from airport by car. Great rooms in this boutique hotel on the water in one of the best town in CA. Very upscale area. Great value. Nice desk with a fireplace at night. Will definitely stay... More

Love this hotel and the location on Main Street in Tiburon. We have been staying at the Waters Edge for over 10 years and it is one of our favorites! The little touches may not seem like much, but they really go a long way with me. The ice water station on the second floor that is available 24 hours... More
