I am glad that I trusted a previous review that this hotel is "a hidden gem." I agree completely. Although, from the outside, this hotel looks a little sketchy, especially compared to bigger chains near by, go inside. The rooms are large, with the most amazingly comfortable tempurpedic mattresses! I could have slept all day instead of vacationing! The rooms... More

For a 2 1/2 star hotel it is very good. There is a sink area in addition to the bathroom, a small table and chairs as well as a balcony. The location is excellent. Free parking below is really welcome. A little restaurant across the street, the Lombard Cafe, has a nice and reasonable breakfast. Bus and restaurants within walking... More

Walking distance to Ghirardelli Square, Marina Green and Fishermans Wharf. Restaurants: Enjoyed Ruth Chris Steakhouse on Van Ness Street which is less than a mile. Have a valet parking Tried McCormick Restaurant on Ghirardellu Square. Few great choices. Mussels were good. Had breakfast at Evas Coffee just few steps away from the Inn. The coffeeshop is the only coffeeshop in... More

Basic hotel just a few short blocks away from the famous zig zaggy Lombard Street and other San Fran landmarks. Comfortable Beds, quiet. Staff was friendly. The Lombard CFe is right across the street and offers a very good breakfast - try the french toast.

This is an OK budget place to stay for a day or 2. We had a room with a balcony with a view of GG Bridge. The hotel is located on a very busy street so bring ear plugs. Also, there is basically no air con so you need to keep the balcony door open for a breeze otherwise the... More

I stayed at the Lombard Motor Inn on a recent trip to San Francisco. I had previously stayed at one of its sister properties (Coventry Motor Inn) but that was fully booked so I took a chance on this one. Like the Coventry, the Lombard Motor Inn is clean, comfortable and safe. The rooms have memory foam mattresses and flat-screen... More

The front staff was very accommodating upon check in and we were placed in a room in the back on the 3rd floor, which, given previous reviews, was probably one of the quietest. Its definitely the cleanest hotel room I've ever stayed in and the fact that the sink is separate form the shower/toilet is a plus when you're a... More

The rooms themselves are nice. They have been remodeled and were very nice. Comfortable beds. But, the parking lot (yes I know it was free) was extremely tight and had tiny spaces. They also didn't have laundry facilities. The staff was nice.

The other reviews were spot on. Not much in this area other than 4-5 other similar motels. Fancy Steakhouse across the street, a convenience store and 2 off the beaten bars that were ok, but with odd crowds. Room was noisy, very noisy but had view of Golden Gate Bridge. It was clean and bathroom was re-done. For $150 a... 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.
