As already stated in other reviews, this hotel is older but the staff and location more than made up for it. Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable and for a five night stay the large mini frig was a real bonus. Safeway is a short walk so you can fill it with fruit, juice and yogurt to add... More

We spent five nights here on a recent vacation to San Francisco. The staff are great, super friendly and very helpful all the time. Free parking is rare in San Fran and they have it, you may have to double park and leave your keys at the desk, then they move the car that's in your way when you want... More

Comfortable beds. Free WiFi. True continental breakfast. Close to many attractions including crookedest street within walking distance. Close to bus stops. Free parking for one car per room! Clean rooms. Great price for San Francisco with all of these amenities.

OMG, where do I begin to tell you about our amazing experience with this hotel? Is it the clean rooms, the free car parking or the great location of this hotel that makes it central to every sightseeing attrition in San Francisco? Perhaps I should start with the best customer service that I have ever experienced in my life. Not... More

For the price and location was a good deal. The management and front desk was very nice and helped with our directions. Was clean but out dated. Had great donuts if you made it down in time. Only instant coffee. I would recommend to friend.

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

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.
