Stayed at this hotel because it was a reasonable price for San Fran. What can I say, it's a place to sleep at the end of the day after exploring the city. Ok bed, comfortable pillows, clean bathroom, perfect size for 2 people. You do get traffic noise, it's a very busy intersection since its on Lombard and Van Ness.... More

The hotel is a typical 2 star hotel. The breakfast is good, toast, waffles, yogurt, cereal, cofee, juice and fruits. The rooms are clean. The people working at the hotel are really aware they work at a 2 star hotel and do not want the hotel to be a 3 star aparently. The Location is really great!!

This is my 2nd time staying at this hotel, came back for the view and location. This was on the backend of business trip in San Jose, and wanted a break in San Francisco before heading back east. Of course you want to reserve a room with Golden Gate Bridge view, the higher the better. The location is good for... More

All of the front desk staff were courteous and knowledgeable about their hotel, the area around the hotel and San Francisco. Check in was a breeze, the rooms spacious and well appointed. Lots of lamps for reading, two lounge chairs plus a work table and chairs. This hotel is geared for large crowds as evidenced by the large breakfast room... More

If you are looking for a fairly good priced hotel in the North section of the San Francisco downtown area, this is a good alternative. Rooms are nice and tidy, personnel is friendly! Breakfast is OK, but not more. Free Wi-Fi sounds good, but is not. That is, you get Internet connection now and then, but never for more that... More

My family of five stayed at Comfort Inn by the Bay just before Christmas and overall our experience was very good. There were five of us and we all stayed in one room the first nite using a rollaway. That was a little too cramped so we added a room. Both rooms were in great shape, clean and cared for.... More

Nice hotel in a very good location. Staff were very friendly and although reasonably tight, there are good parking facilities. Even though you are on a main road (on two sides), I was pleasantly surprised by how quiet it was in my room. Room was comfortable and spotless. Breakfast was included and was good - fresh and hot food, cereal,... More

Choose a high room when you book - you pay a little more for it but it's worth it for the view! Very affordable accommodation right near the city - walking distance to Aquatic Park and Lombard street. Bathroom small but room is clean and beds comfortable.

I had one night in San Fran and chose this hotel due to location being close to concert venue (The Warfield). I originally planned to walk but it might have been a bit far for me in the end so I did uber. Hotel was nice, clean room, nice bathroom with tub, there was no fridge (I don't remember microwave...

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.
