We got a good deal through Hotwire. I think we paid about $170/night, which is about $100 cheaper than any of the big brands. It wasn't the most beautiful place, but it was clean and the location was awesome. It also offered free parking, which is a huge deal.

Given the fact that finding parking is as rare as hens teeth in San Francisco the free parking plus the moderate rates and a staff that tries hard to accommodatemakes this hotel a good value for the money The staff works hard to accommodate the only negative I would say is that they offer instant coffee instead of regular coffee...

As we learned recently, staying downtown (or close to it) in San Francisco is verrrry expensive. Luckily we found this place. Still fairly pricey, but with wifi and parking included this place is a gem. The staff was friendly and welcoming, and our room was a good size. I know some people think it's too loud in this area but... More

We got a good price for this hotel thru the Internet $74 a night. The rooms were clean and spacious, it was very central to the wharf, SF zoo etc. it did have parking a plus, but the spots were very close. Our room was the closest to the street and a little noisey. I would recommend it, if you... More

We stayed here because my parents and their friends were going to be here so it was convenient. The area is nice. The... More

We had quite a small room for a family of four. There were two queen sized beds, a desk and some hanging space. There were no drawers, so we weren’t able to unpack our suitcases. The bathroom was large and there was ample hot water for showering. The room had a fridge with icebox, a microwave and a coffee maker.... More

We stayed there for 3 nights before a cruise in April. It is built on a busy junction which can be a bit noisy but earplugs are provided. Rooms are basic clean and comfortable with fridge, microwave iron and board but no safe. Built in the typical "thrown up" in a month motel style that the Americans do so well.... More

I don't really expect much from this sort of Hotel/Motel, but I was really disappointed in this one we didn't arrive in San Francisco until after 10pm due to flight delays and it was nearly 11pm when we checked in, as they advertise Tea/Coffee making facilities in the Room, we though we would have a cuppa then just bed down,...

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.
