This is an updated historic building. There is no overnight parking at the facility. There is a parking garage 2 blocks away. There are centrally located stairs or you may use the elevator to cart your luggage up to your floor. The room was clean and decorated in period wallpapers, etc. including a window seat, armoire, and desk with chair.... More

San Francisco as a place to visit is nothing short of amazing- there really is so much to see and do. If you are a seafoody then Fishermans Wharf area is unbeatable and such a brilliant atmosphere. Now, to the hotel...! Plus- decent location, just a 10min stroll from the bay that has outstanding views of the Golden Gate Bridge... More

We chose this inn because of budget and the location was more than we bargained for. It is steps away from Fort Mason, a "park" with a large meadow and beautiful view of the waterfront. If you continue walking along the waterfront you will reach the fisherman's wharf. Also close to a Safeway, in case any you need any groceries.... More

First disappointment was the fact that there was no parking. I was told that we could park for free on the street but would have to move the car every 2 hours. Otherwise we could park the car in the public car park for $22.00 per 24 hours. We decided this was the best option but we were glad we... More

Pros about this hotel Location is close to most of the attractions Cost - £140 for three nights in San Francisco is a bargain Cons Partner asked reception if she could have a plug because she wanted a bath. Had the response 'we don't have any, people just take them and we don't know why' bizarre. Breakfast is terrible. Don't... More

I stayed here for business in April as my favorite Marina motel was completely full. If that were to happen again, I would stay here. The room rate was inexpensive but the room was clean and adequate for my needs. It faced the interior of the building and while others groused about the view of other buildings, I didn't mind...

Location isn't bad, 1 mile to main part of sea front then plenty of buses nearby to take you around the city. Room was clean but basic, wifi was free but not amazing. Breakfast was disappointing. Website describes freshly baked goods, not sure why they say that. Toast, yogurt, banana and coffee. Also only 4 tables of 2 in breakfast... More

A friend and I spent 4 nights here and were so impressed with this place. Location was fantastic, and for the price it exceeded our expectations. Breakfast was simple but included in your stay. As we didn't spend lots of time here it was perfect for our needs. We will definitely stay here again next time we are in town.

While searching for a hotel while in San Francisco prior to moving into an apartment there, I came across this charming hotel. Suzina showed me two rooms of which I thought the single room facing the street was delightful. She was so helpful with great customer service. We didn't stay there as we were in the process of moving across... 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.
