I really enjoyed my stay here. Location is great.. The drive to the golden gate bridge and palace of fine arts is just a few minutes away. Walking distance to union square is less than an hour. Walking was a good way to explore the city streets. Mel's Diner is just in front of the hotel which was VERY convenient.... More

Stayed here several times when in San Francisco and it is generally a good place and conveniently located. Stayed there recently end Jan/early Feb 2016 and they had just about doubled its normal rate to take advantage of the expected influx of visitors in the run up to Super Bowl 50. As the hotel appeared to be only half full... More

Very nice place to stay. Conveniently located to all SF sites. Free parking is an especially nice perk. Walking distance to many restaurants and coffee houses. Very refreshing to see many locals out walking around to the neighborhood businesses. No room service but with all of the restaurants around, who needs it?

This was a great hotel. Very good price for the location. Our room was clean and employees were very helpful. For the location and price you aren't going to get better. Not the nicest hotel but it was clean and met our expectations. It was also close to public transit which was nice.

Nothing fancy but clean, large rooms at a reasonable price in the heart of the marina district and free off street parking make this hotel a San Francisco star. Although located on busy Lombard, the hotel is quiet and pleasant. Great restaurants and bars just steps away on Steiner and Chestnut.

Renovated 1 1/2 years ago, the rooms are tastefully appointed and spacious. The rates are very reasonable for a motel so conveniently located to restaurants and shops but not in the downtown congestion. Be sure to ask for a room not facing Lombard or Steiner streets where there is some traffic noise but not enough to be annoying. We have... More

I can't believe I didn't review this place before now; it was just right! Staff was so helpful and nice, with recommendations for dinner and local transportation. Rooms have been updated since the pictures associated on Trip Advisor. The neighborhood is a bit out of the way, but we walked to get to the wharf and used the bus to... More

Cow Hollow Inn surpassed my expectations and then some. This place has some of THE BEST customer service I have ever experienced! From a couple of phone calls before even arriving in San Francisco, to helping me get around an unexpected parade route to pick up my rental car. Sabrina & Dabrina were fantastic! My room was very comfortable. I... More

I wasn't expecting much...really booked due to free parking and access to Crissy Field and Cow Hollow restaurants like Umami. We got a room that had two double beds and a separate sofa, TV room and kitchenette. It was quiet and very roomy for a San Francisco hotel. They have a great coffee maker in the breakfast room to bring... 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.
