We will be back with our red standard poodle! We had a courtyard room with a full kitchen, plenty of room for Jacq's kennel near our bed, and a garage for our car. The staff is friendly, the place is quiet yet near lots of great attractions like the Presidio and all the shops and restaurants on Chestnut Street. This... More

Reasonable price, especially in the winter. Has lovely grounds, lots of unique paintings and potted plants, you get your own private parking garage with doors! We got a unit with a full kitchen and it really feels like you're staying in someone's apartment, complete with lovely furnishings. Oh, and free wifi. What's not to like? No bathtub. Other than that,... More

We found this motel by accident as I was having trouble finding a pet friendly location that was quiet as our dogs shy and skittish. This motel was a splendid oasis in the middle of Lombard and Chestnut streets, As soon as we stepped into the courtyard there was a peaceful hush. The courtyard is just beautiful and there is...

We had a courtyard room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The place had a historic charm, with basic amenities. The bed was ok, but they needed better pillows. There was plenty of hot water. The room was clean and functional. The fridge and microwave were a help and a walgreens is just around the corner. We were also... More

The receptionist at the hotel was very nice but unfortunately, I should have inspected the room before paying. I reserved months ahead but received an outside room that required backing onto the very, very busy Lombard Street to park in a tiny, European-sized parking garage. If you receive a room that allows you to park inside their courtyard, then you... More

Friends told us about this place which is on 101 (Lombard) near the Presidio and Golden Gate Bridge. It is an auto court from 1939 and has been kept attractive and comfortable. Even in December giant fuchsias and bougainvillea were blooming throughout the courtyard which has garages below and rooms above. Our basic room was not large, modern, or luxurious... More

Stayed at Marina during the San Fran thunderstorms. The place was fantastic - superb location, great rooms, and amazing staff. The staff went out of their way to help during a difficult period for me (my car ran out of petrol and no gas stations were open, and I had 3 hours to catch a flight home - Olly actually... More

we did not want to stay in a giant SF hotel, so we chose the Marina and it is a small,, old fashioned motor lodge and what a find! The staff are wondeful, the rooms quaint and clean, and the gardening beautiful. We would have preferred a room further away from the street, and next time will get one with... More

This small, unassuming motel, is definitely a hidden gem while staying in San Francisco. The rooms are spacious, with kitchens, and your own garage! The courtyard is beautiful - obviously the owner, Toby, has a green thumb! It is in the center of everything and made our stay more like we actually lived in San Francisco. I felt so safe... 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.
