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. Let me just tell you - we read the bad reviews after we did our booking (or I did and didn't have the... More

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

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

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.
