My husband and I stayed in Marina Inn on July 29, 2014... We planned a very, very last minute vacation, booking the flight without looking into any hotels. I told him I wanted the first night booked so I that we knew we had somewhere to stay when we got it.... We stayed only the one night. He booked it... More

I think the room you end up being given would probably make a huge difference to the quality of your stay here. We were in a tiny room - so small we barely had enough space to walk around the bed. There was no aircon and not even the fan that some reviewers mentioned they had. The only ventilation available... More

This hotel has a great location... is in a great area near the bay and near all good night atractions. Marina Inn has most of the services you need. The place is pretty clean and they have a great service.

I was travelling with someone else in San Francisco who paid slightly more than me and spent a week in a dump. For the money you pay this place is a great find. It could do with a coat of paint and a few other updates but if you want a comfortable bed and a friendly welcome then this place... More

This is a very old property. You will feel uncomfortable in this environment. Staff was helpful and willing to do what they can with what they have. The only way to get any air movement is an oscillating fan and if you don't like street noise from Lombard, you will have a tough time getting any air movement in the... More

I have stayed in a lot of places, and this one is certainly at the bottom of the list. If you have another option do so. I can not recommend this hotel at all. First - the rooms are old and tremednously outdated. They make a Motel 6 look like a luxury resort. There is NO AIR CONDITIONING!!! Yes you... More

Rooms were incredibly hot and there is no air conditioning so you HAVE TO open window in order to sleep. Many of the rooms face a well from which it is very very easy to climb to rooms. Still we didn't mind,thought staff was reliable. Unfortunately,last night of our stay, hours before check out our camera and all the equipments... More

My husband spent a couple of days in San Francisco and this was a good location. The #30 bus at the corner of Chestnut and Octavia is very close to the hotel entrance. Taking the 30 bus, we were able to go to Ghirardelli Square, Chinatown, and a Giants game. This made it very easy to get around. We bought... More
