We knew before we went this motel was a bit dated (my guess is it's not been updated since the early 90's) which we didn't mind as we chose it for its location and the free parking. We were able to leave our car there for the 4 days of our stay and walk to most places we wanted to... More

I visited SF for two days and wanted an affordable yet reasonably comfortable stay. That is exactly what I found at the Redwood Inn, so let me start by saying that I was pleased with my choice. That said, I'll share some experience of my stay here. When I checked in, the person at the counter seemed a bit uninterested... More

The sheets and bathroom were clean and that is #1 for me. The rooms have coffee and a fridge. Some have microwaves but ours did not. We almost had a problem checking in, but the woman at the front desk got it quickly resolved. She was very helpful. We chose this motel for its free parking and walking distance, however... More

Arriving late at night the front desk was friendly and efficient with check in. The rooms are mid size. Beds are decent, only 2 pillows per bed (we brought our own). Our rooms were very outdated, a few stains on the hunter green carpet. Fridge, microwave, and a small table with 2 chairs. Heater/air is loud. Free parking, even after... More

We stayed for a week in March 2015. The hotel still great ! Good clean large rooms with refrigerator and microwave plus coffee and pastries in... More

Free parking, great location, nice staff. We stayed for two nights in February. Bare bones, tv, microwave, bathroom with fan, table, old tv with cable and fridge. The only downside (if you call it that) is they only have two pillows on a bed.

We chose this hotel based on location and price. But it offered much more. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. You get a good deal for the price, which includes free parking. It is located in a great spot, within walking distance to many local restaurants and Fisherman's Wharf. I would definitely stay here again!

Clean room, nice tv channels, comfortable beds and a nice location. The room has a refrigerator and a microwave. The wifi is very good, it is free and faster than other hotels which lack these last things. Simple but spacious, and although alarm clock and tv are kind of old, you get a very good value for the price. Receptionist... More

The receptionists were nice. The rooms were clean and the place was in a great location. Easy to get to and from many places of interest. The door lock would get stuck so i had to use the card multiple times but it wasn't really an issue. No negatives. Quite pleasant and good value

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.
