We enjoyed our two-night stay in a suite at this converted motor lodge. My wife and I took the small (but comfortable) bedroom. My teenage son slept in the living room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. However, if there had been affordable vacancies elsewhere, this wouldn't have been our first choice. The pullout sofa bed was very uncomfortable.... More

Stayed here for 5 nights as a party of 9 in 3 rooms. I was a little concerned about the location but it couldn't have been better. It is a couple of blocks from the hip and cool Chestnut St and Union Street. Plenty of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. It is only a 20 minute walk to Fishermans Wharf... More

The location was outstanding! Dinners out were super easy and walking Chestnut St. for coffee, fashion, lunches (Lucca Deli!!!) and dinners was excellent. We were in our own San Francisco neighborhood and we felt like locals. The waterfront was a easy walk, an insane hill was in the other direction, Union St. shopping up the road, and ease of parking... More

The hotel is in a great location, close to many restaurants, bars, coffee places and stores and also within walking distance of many great areas of San Francisco. The hotel's location a block off the main thoroughfare (Lombard) makes it a quiet spot in a busy area. And, the price is very reasonable for San Francisco. The hotel offers ample... More

Honestly, I'm a little burned out on Union Square and the big hotels. The Marina is a relaxed neighborhood yet packed with incredible restaurants and clubs. The Sunday brunch scene is incredible. And the dance party all afternoon around the corner was an unexpected surprise. The other unique aspect is the pool. San Francisco has almost no outdoor pools, and... More

3 days here during a family trip for a memorial of a loved one. Needed a place of quiet and emotional comfort. I must admit I was skeptical of a Motel in SF, but got surprised. We entered at night and in this district I felt like I was at a stop over in some quaint Spanish or Cuban town.... More

We recently stayed in a junior suite at Hotel Del Sol for a family vacation. Loved it! We looked at more expensive locations near Fisherman's Wharf and Union Square, but we are very glad we chose this hotel in the Cow Hollow/Marina area. Pros: - Great staff who went out of their way to be friendly and helpful many times... More

The location of this hotel is perfect. In a neighborhood but just a few blogs from Union St restaurants or Chestnut Ave restaurants. And we walked downtown to the Imperial Spa which was one of the things on our list to do. We had great meals where locals go. Tiffany who was working the front desk at the hotel was... More

As an SF native family that has been transplanted elsewhere, we desperately miss our old 'hood. Fortunately, the Del Sol serves as our home away from home each year when we come back to visit. The rooms have been recently upgraded so it is even better - bathrooms especially. Great location - walk to shopping, the Golden Gate Bridge, the... 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.
