While researching for a modestly priced "hub" for our stay, Chelsea Motor Inn fit our needs. It is quite close to many great sights and "must sees" including Pier 39, Crissy Field, Palace of Fine Arts, and more. The location is within walking distance of many great eateries and coffee shops as it is right on Lombard St. Our room... More

Looks like they remodeled the place since my last visit several years ago. Great free parking, nice room overall with everything you need and clean and fresh. Of course facing Lombard you'll have road noise from the busy street, but do not NEVER EVER get a room on the Fillmore side. There is a tiny country bar across the street... More

This hotel is very nice located in the center of the city close to everything. Very nice restaurants a few block away, KFC in front of the restaurant. An amazing place to have breakfast just around the corner. Other reviewers said they couldn't sleep for the street noise but that does not applied to us. We slept like babies in... More

We stayed here having been to San Fran a few times before and previously stayed towards financial district/ union square. I personally think this area is far better. A gentle 20 minute walk via fort Mason to fishermans wharf and about 25-30 walk to pier 33 for the ferry to Alcatraz. Chestnut street a block away is a great street... More

Very large room with central air so no need to worry about noise from street. The Marina district is a very good location to tour SF. We walked to the bay and over to the Wharf, picked up the trolley and made it all around without too much effort. This is a good choice if you don't want to spend... More

Stayed 3 nights. We loved that the parking was included. The staff was pleasant. The room was large and clean. The location of the hotel is one block south of Chestnut st. Plenty of restaurants and shop near by. Lombard crooked street is also walking distance. However, it is an uphill direction, if you are not use to hiking I... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in June 2015 before driving up the coast of California & Oregon. The building is older but the accommodations were great, room was clean and everything worked fine. It sits on a corner and it can get quite loud. Mohammed (at the front desk) was nice enough to get us a room that faced... More

Checking in we informed the desk that my race bike had been stolen the morning we arrived and would need to rent a bike for my triathlon that weekend. Told that no bikes were allowed in the rooms. The main purpose of this trip was to race the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon and this hotel is close to the venue.... More

This is an older style motor hotel which is on the Hop On Hop Off bus route. The rooms are large and well maintained. The beds are comfortable. Don't be put off by the shabby hall ways - the rooms are excellent inside. Best not to ask for a room at the back as the Post Office is next door... 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.
