The inn is quite small & practical & great for those on a budget. Unfortunately no air con or fridge. The location is great as it's less than a half an hour luxurious walk to Fishermans wharf where we went everyday for the best seafood in the world. Lots of tourist attractions near by. You can safely walk to heaps... More

I had a very bad experience at Marina Inn Hotel in San Francisco ( 3110 Octavia at Lombard 94123) Generally speaking the hotel is very expensive for what is it(I spent 200$ per night). The hotel is old, there is no wardrobe and the breakfast is in a small room with only 6tables for 2 person each. The worst thing... More

Stayed here for two nights to do some sightseeing around SF. 10 minutes walk from Fishermans Wharf and on all the main sightseeing bus routes so very good location. Rooms are very tired, can't remember the last time I saw a CRT TV! Bed was comfortable but room and bathroom really need an upgrade. Good value for the location though... More

This hotel does the job for a few nights. It's nothing amazing but the room was decent, and staff okay, there was also a very simple free breakfast served daily. It wasn't glamorous and I probably would try another hotel if I was in the area again, but on a budget it ticks most boxes. Location wise it's a bit... More

We enjoyed our stay there. The room is nice and clean with a couple of nice touches. We liked it very much, even though the bathroom space is limited. People at the reception were either very friendly or ignored us completely. Most staff was very nice, and helpful, but being ignored feels uncomfortable. One evening we arrived, we greeted a...

This is an older hotel that is well kept. The staff are acceptable, the rooms are comfortable (room 205 was great) and the inn is secure. Breakfast leaves something to be desired - toast, yogurt, coffee/tea and a cranky lady running the breakfast room. We ignored breakfast after our first encounter as it added nothing to the quality of our... More

We flew in from New York for our planned road trip starting in San Francisco and heading towards LA/LV. We just gave the hotel a quick look online, the reviews seemed ok and the location looked good.

My partner and I went to San Francisco last week to enjoy the July 4th holiday and see the sights. We booked the Marina for 5 nights based on the photos and the reviews on this web site. When we arrived at the Marina and got to our room, it was beyond tiny, not much bigger than a single bedroom... More

My wife and I visited San Fransisco for the 4th of July. We really enjoyed our Tay at the Marina Inn. It's a very simple hotel with a very simple breakfast. The price was affordable and it's in a very good location. It's more of a traditional place to stay in San Fransisco. My wife and I like the classic... 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.
