When it comes to find a budget friendly hotel in SF, it is like looking for a needle in a haystack. We were lucky enough to find Cow Hollow Motor Inn which let us spend our money on other pleasures rather than paying $$$ for accommodation. The location is very safe and there are many shop&restaurant options. The transportation to... More

Brilliant Hotel in a great location. The rooms where a really good size and the beds where very comfortable. The view from the room was very nice, especially at night with the buildings lit up. From the Hotel is was actually a short and nice walk to the Palace of fine Arts and from there you can continue on down... More

Stayed here for three nights - the room was large and clean, if a bit outdated. Our room was facing Lombard Street, and it can be noisy at night (I travel with earplugs, and I needed them here). A good location, very close to the Golden Gate bridge. The free parking makes this hotel a really good value for SF... More

The rooms are huge compared to the rooms downtown. I stayed at 4 different Hotels in San Francisco and this place by far was the best I stayed at. In a very nice location. The Pizza place across the street has some great food. Try the Chicken Pesto sandwich, the Pesto is amazing. the night life in the area is... More

First, we had not enjoyed staying south of Market, nor around Fishermen's Wharf, so this time, tried the Marina District, which was wonderful for us. A major draw was that the price, which was less than two hundred dollars/night, included parking. The room was spacious, beds wonderfully comfortable, A/C worked, decor was fine, and everything was super clean - the... More

I like this place because it's reasonable (for SF), in a great neighborhood, clean and they provide free parking. Walking distance to many places, catch a bus out front for thr Golden Gate Bridge, and less than $10 Uber from most everywhere you want to go. Plenty of restaurants on nearby Union St. And Chestnut st.

I stayed in this hotel for a few nights this June. I got a renovated room, facing away from the streets, as requested. The room is nice and clean. The hotel is situated in a safe neighbourhood with many restaurants and shops. There were ample parking lots. Security was tight too - we have to use our card key every... More

Since we planned to visit all of the areas of downtown San Francisco, we looked for a clean, moderate-priced hotel with complimentary parking for our rental vehicle. Cow Hollow Motor Inn met our needs perfectly. We drove into the hotel garage off Lombard Street and checked in at the office. Since my husband is a light sleeper, we had requested... More

We selected this hotel for its free parking and central location. Many great restaurants within walking distance. Also many tourist attractions close enough to walk to. We walked to fisherman's wharf,just over a mile. Our room was quiet with a view of the bridge. Always ask for a room off Lombard as it will be quieter.

The evening we arrived, Stephan checked us in, he was very nice and efficient all with a smile and, voila, we had the nice quiet room as requested. The room was interior, spacious, clean with a very comfortable bed. We had a big palm tree as our view. Everything we like to do is within walking distance at least for... 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.
