We stayed at the Cow Hollow Inn from 1-15 through 1-19. The hotel was nice and had character that kept with the neighborhood. The bed was comfortable and enjoyable. We stayed in a back room off Lombard street per the suggestions here. I'm glad we did. We had a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge, sometimes sunny and sometimes... More

It's not chic, trendy or in a great location but it is $98 a night including room taxes. If you don't mind being on Lombard, an 8 eight lane major thoroughfare with lots of traffic, it's a great spot, seriously! And, it has free parking. My wife and I went to a wedding in the Marina and did not want... More

We were incredibly happy with our stay at Cow Hollow. Most of all the major attractions were incredibly accessible from this location, and it was much more affordable than staying in Fisherman's Wharf or any of the other touristy areas. The staff at the front desk were so nice and helpful--probably the nicest hotel staff we've ever encountered. The rooms... More

We recently stayed at this hotel. The hotel itself is very nice and in a great location, however if your room is facing Lombard Street you can forget about sleeping. The noise is constant. It's a shame because all they need to do is invest in double glazing. I have reviewed as poor because you book into a hotel to... More

We found Cow Hollow several years ago when we lived in Fresno and went to SF a few times a year and I reviewed it then. Now we live in LA (twice the distance), so we go for several days over the holidays and I'm reviewing it again since it was recently remodeled. The whole family (2 adults and 2... More

I've been to San Francisco a few times and cannot believe I only just discovered this place. The Cow Hollow Inn offers its patrons immense value, especially considering that it has free covered parking! I understand that the inn was recently renovated and you could tell that this was the case - my room & bathroom were clean, sheets were... More

Just got back from a week in San Fran staying at the Cow. It's the best kept secret in San Fran for value, comfort, and location for tourists. Though I've been to San Fran many times, took the family this time. This place was only $120 per night and is located within 5-10 min walking distance to the Wharf; 10-15... More

We stay here every time we visit SF, which is about every other year. It's nice to stay in the Cow Hollow/Marina area because it's sunny and cheerful (as opposed to other parts of the city) and there is a lot within walking distance. An Apple Store, Gap, and numerous good restaurants are around the corner on Chestnut. You can... More

We stayed for three nights while on vacation in California. All we can remember about this hotel is how noisy it was. Our first room faced inwards towards buildings, with what seemed like noisy generators and a/c unit outlets which whirred noisily all night long. We were also woken several times during the night by people coming and going from... More

If that sounds like a back handed compliment? I don't mean it to be. But if you check in expecting s chic B&b or the Fairmont, you're in the wrong place. This is an old fashioned ( I mean this in a good way) motor inn. The parking is in an underground garage on site. The rooms are spacious, comfortable... More

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
