Don't be put off by how this place looks from the outside. We stayed here 3 nights and could have stayed longer if we didn't have to move on. Our delightful stay started as soon as we walked into reception. The staff are just so lovely and helpful. Our room had plenty of space for a family of 4 to... More

Great location on Lombard Street ! You could easily walk to Fisherman's Wharf area in 15 mins . This is what we did until we found a bus stop less than 5 mins. away where we could access any part of San-Francisco . Just ask the front Desk staff . There are a few restaurants within walking distance for late... More

My partner and I needed to book a place from our way from Oregon. We stayed in hotels close but they where booked so took a chance here. As it worked out it was a great place. Slightly out dated but had two nice big beds, TV, fridge, kettle and microwave. Room and bathroom very clean and room turned over... More

Redwood inn is a few blocks from Fishermans Wharf and other sightseeing areas in San Fransisco. They offer off street parking. The rooms are clean but it definitely feels like your stepping back to 1970's. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Great bang for your buck for a place to sleep at night. There is some very nice small... More

We generally select the motel because it's a 10 minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf to the east and a 10 minute drive along Lombard street to the GG Bridge to the west. Rooms are basic, clean, but outdated and in need of new carpets and furniture to replace stains and wear. Friendly staff, but impossible to contact through the website.... More

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

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.
