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

Again the stay was just right. Slightly off the beaten track but still close to buses and cable cars. Price was still it's biggest draw. We had a lovely stay in the quaint rooms. Clean and tidy. I must admit I never saw any staff after we checked in.

We booked 3 rooms at this hotel for 3 nights. Its an older hotel with personality which I really enjoy. Any imperfections are part of the experience. 2 people in our party of 6 enjoy modern updated hotels but agreed that for the price of this hotel it was perfect. We had 3 delux queen rooms and Each room was... More

We've stayed here twice- once in 2008 and once in 2014! This place is PERFECT for the price. We were here just to take showers and sleep at night. In a city like SF, you're not going to be spending a lot of time relaxing in your room! The rooms are small an dated. Showers are really tiny but do... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and we had no problems. Within walking distance to the wharf, shops and many restaurants. The room is a decent size, a little out dated and the bathroom is a little small but don't let stop you from staying here, the bed is massive-king size, plus it is super comfy. The only negative is... More

First, "Don't do it!" As soon as we opened the door to our tiny room (#407) with direct sunlight, we were nearly overcome from the heat. We looked for a way to adjust the radiator, but was informed by staff, that it was central to the entire building and that it "will not be turned off or lowered, because certain... More

staff at the desk are very helpful, and the lobby is quite nice. We stayed in a deluxe queen room. The bed was very comfortable and the room was nice and big. Fridge was very handy. Bathroom was very small and barely had room to open the door but was not of concern to us. Wifi was a bit intermittent.... 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.
