First disappointment was the fact that there was no parking. I was told that we could park for free on the street but would have to move the car every 2 hours. Otherwise we could park the car in the public car park for $22.00 per 24 hours. We decided this was the best option but we were glad we... More

Pros about this hotel Location is close to most of the attractions Cost - £140 for three nights in San Francisco is a bargain Cons Partner asked reception if she could have a plug because she wanted a bath. Had the response 'we don't have any, people just take them and we don't know why' bizarre. Breakfast is terrible. Don't... More

I stayed here for business in April as my favorite Marina motel was completely full. If that were to happen again, I would stay here. The room rate was inexpensive but the room was clean and adequate for my needs. It faced the interior of the building and while others groused about the view of other buildings, I didn't mind...

Location isn't bad, 1 mile to main part of sea front then plenty of buses nearby to take you around the city. Room was clean but basic, wifi was free but not amazing. Breakfast was disappointing. Website describes freshly baked goods, not sure why they say that. Toast, yogurt, banana and coffee. Also only 4 tables of 2 in breakfast... More

A friend and I spent 4 nights here and were so impressed with this place. Location was fantastic, and for the price it exceeded our expectations. Breakfast was simple but included in your stay. As we didn't spend lots of time here it was perfect for our needs. We will definitely stay here again next time we are in town.

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

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.
