We arrived here for a couple days and I was pleasantly surprised with our room. For the price I was happy, it was big and roomy and clean. Since we were not going to stay here much the amenities were fine. The parking garage was also a A+ and the location was great. Lots of great restaurants, bars and stores.... More

I'm surprised to see people complain about this hotel. When we were searching for a place to stay, we almost couldn't do the San Fran part of our trip because I had such a hard timing finding a place that was affordable AND decently reviewed on TA. Then I found this place mostly positively reviewed. But when I see what... More

Hubby and I really enjoyed our stay here, very easy to use public transport if you wish to leave the car behind and not have the hassle of having to drive or park when seeing the sights. Room was large with a wonderful bed and good quality linen. En suite was large and very clean with a wonderful bath -... More

When we were looking for somewhere to stay in San Francisco, we initially wanted to stay either in Fisherman's Wharf or Union Square area, but it was crazy expensive. So I looked at some motels and came across Chelsea Motor Inn. Price was reasonable and initially when we were looking at getting a car there is free parking, so quite... More

I had researched hotels/motels with parking before booking the Chelsea and it appeared the perfect fit. Once booked I was concerned by the comment "parking on a first come first served basis" as I had been warned parking is at a premium in the city. My fears were unfounded as there was plenty of room when we arrived. The rooms... More

We stayed here one night and were very pleasantly surprised. The room decor is very dated but it almost adds to the retro charm of the place. The room was very spacious and clean with a comfy bed so worked great for us. We stayed on 3rd floor and it wasn’t any more noisy than I would expect in any... More

We totally enjoyed our stay! The room was affordable, clean and comfortable. The people at the front desk were kind and helpful. We found the neighborhood to be safe with easy access to public transportation. We will definitely return!

Good location to catch Big Bus. Very clean and best was free parking. Not best neighborhood down Filmore, but did not feel threatened. Post Office half block away or you can send mail from front desk. A little noisy, but turned on fan and after about 11pm not much noise.

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.
