I made a reservation at this Inn because I like to support small and local businesses when I can. English was definitely not the first language of the woman with whom I placed the reservation and while it took exceedingly long, I remained patient. She advised of a 24hr cancellation policy, which is I would say the norm around the... More

We planned to stay here for 2 nights but extended for another 2. The people at the front desk were always incredibly helpful and friendly, nothing was too much for them. They were able to organise a shuttle to the airport too which was much cheaper than a taxi would have been. The room was clean and good size for... More

It's one of those days where you just want to take a breather....and have 'me time' to keep yourself sane. I just needed a place to sleep and get away from my 'environment' and this was the place! Paul and Margarita offered excellent customer service! They made me feel at home. The staff are very helpful with their knowledge of... More

The perfect place to stay if you're driving to San Francisco and plan on walking or taking the bus while there. Within walking distance from both Fishermans Wharf and the Golden Gate Bridge. You won't find any luxuries, but the rooms are clean, complementary donuts and coffee are included for breakfast and the receptionist was very nice and eager to... More

Rooms clean & tidy, not too small. TV, Fridge, microwave, hair dryer, coffee making facilities available. Unfortunately, elevator broke down the day we arrived, but was fixed within a couple of days. Location good for San Francisco. Hop on and off bus stop very near. Parking included. No breakfast, but complimentary doughnuts each morning. Room decor slightly tired, but you... More

Walking distance to Fishmans Wharf and downtown. Free parking. Room is clean, enough towels and shampoo. But the room has a stale smell. Free wifi speed OK. Rooms at back are quieter. Several eating places nearby, nothing great. Cost $205/night taxes included. Several similar hotels nearby, cost about same. Will try next time.

I have found this part of Lombard perfect to explore the SF area. Easy access both north to Golden Gate and south (via Van Ness). Note that Lombard is 24 h busy so choose a roome far back if you can. A negative thing is that you sort of must have closed curtains all the time as the walkway is... More

Stayed for 1 night in June 2014 at the Redwood Inn on Lombard. Reserved over the phone with May, she was very nice and accomodated our early arrival. Got AAA Rate of $149 for 1 queen bed, 2 people which is pretty good with only 2 days advance notice. (Room actually had two queen beds.) Free parking was a huge... More

My husband and I read good reviews about this hotel and it was reasonably priced so we decided to stay here for 2 nights. It was in a good location - could easily walk to Fisherman's Wharf. It was clean but a little outdated. The service was excellent though!

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.
