The room we had was a bit dated and the bathroom was very small but no big deal, bed was huge and comfortable, staff were very helpful and there are some really good restaurant up the road on chestnut st.

First, "Don't do it!" As soon as we opened the door to our tiny room (#407) with direct sunlight, we were nearly overcome from the heat. We looked for a way to adjust the radiator, but was informed by staff, that it was central to the entire building and that it "will not be turned off or lowered, because certain... More

staff at the desk are very helpful, and the lobby is quite nice. We stayed in a deluxe queen room. The bed was very comfortable and the room was nice and big. Fridge was very handy. Bathroom was very small and barely had room to open the door but was not of concern to us. Wifi was a bit intermittent.... More

Great place to stay on budget near the wharf area. The location is the major plus and even the staff were helpful. The complimentary breakfast was also good. The only miss was a bottle of water i was expecting to see in the mini fridge they had in the room. Overall a pleasant experience to stay!

We stayed here for two nights at the end of a long road trip. The room we had for the first night was small and cramped for two people, and when we approached the receptionist the next morning, we were told he would see what he could do. We went out for the day, and when we came back, we... More

The hotel is easy to find, the rooms are in standard - clean, with new towels everyday. Hotel staff very helpful and nice. It is in walking distance to some good food places (at Chestnut St/Fillmore St), walking distance to the most curvy part of Lombard street (depends how fast you go uphills ;) but 10-20 min), Fisherman's Wharf also...

I see that some people paid a couple hundred dollars a night to stay here but my husband and I stayed for $90 a night and thought it was well worth it. The staff were pretty nice. They will book you a shuttle to the airport which is $15 a person (but make sure to leave a bit early since... More

Chosen for it's location and price, the Marina Inn looked ideal on-line, and was oddly one of the few hotels that were not booked out for late August 2014. We now know why. As a couple in our late 30s, we have travelled a fair bit on a reasonable budget. This time with my 66 year old Mother as our... More

Would have been OK if it had been half the price, but at $270 a night for a room described as 'spacious, with a seating area', I was expecting more. There was a queen bed, a single bed, a desk and chair and a cabinet with a TV on. Felt very cramped and the small window looked onto a blank... 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.
