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

We stayed here for 3 nights on a last minute trip to san fran. Its a small family run place, rooms are slightly dated but VERY clean and VERY comfortable beds, we had a little confusion with the payment when checking in ( booking.com issue not the hotels) but the guy at the desk let us check in no problem...

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

The hotel is at a walking distance from Fort Mason and also to the sea front. The room is small but was quite nice and i liked it a lot. The breakfast is quite basic... More

This hotel is located right on the Lombard street in a very nice residential area. The rooms are very cosy and clean with basic amenities. The breakfast is very basic, but fine. Staff was friendly and helpful. Our windows were directly to the Lombard street, so it gets quite noisy when you open the windows, but well you are in... More

We found this hotel on Booking.com. It is a traditional style hotel and we were very pleased with our room which was comfortable and clean. The bath/shower facilities were a bit dated but they did the job. Our room did not have a view but that never bothers us as we don't go on holiday to stay in our room.There... More

Just perfect for the traveler on a budget. Not the Fairmont that's for sure but the Marina Inn is clean, quiet and comfortable. Good location, helpful staff, well appointed rooms. The walls are a bit thin but I was informed that this issue is being addressed. Otherwise it was a perfect stay. Thank you Marina Inn looking forward to being... More

In order to give a hotel 5 stars, I only need 3 things. 1) Safe neighborhood: I felt entirely comfortable staying in the neighborhood that the Marina Inn is located in. 2) Clean: Although the building is old, and it has a fairly strong "frebreezed" odor when you first walk into the room, it was clean and I felt comfortable...

First of all, there is no place where you can even stop to unload the luggage and some neighbours are quite aggressive if you want to stop i their driveway for a minute to unload... The reception was friendly and helpful, the room was small, shabby, there was just enough space to walk around the bed. No fridge, windows without... More

Great situation, very kind staff. the room are a little bit old fashioned but very confortable though! Very nice price too! Good value for money. I loved the fact that I only had to walk for only a couple of minutes to reach the seashore and the touristic wharf! I highly recommend it! Pat
