    We were traveling with my husband parents who are 82 and 76. They are healthy and were able to navigate the stairs. Each room was a little different and lovely. Very clean! The courtyard was truly a haven in the midst of San Francisco. It was close to most of the main attractions. We walked down the street for breakfast... More

    After travelling from Yosemite NP, we (3 adults) arrived in San Francisco around 9 pm and showed up without a reservation. The receptionist was more than accommodating, allowing us to check into a two queen-bed room (as nothing else was available) and then moved us into a 2 bedroom room the next day for the same price. They have free... More

    This place is a hidden gem in the city. It's a beautiful spot with a lovely courtyard and fabulous flowers. Plenty of parking and inviting, comfortable rooms. All rooms have refrigerator and microwave. Many have a full kitchen. Lots of personality and not a faceless corporate sterile place. Beds are comfortable. Perfect location and convenient to most city destinations. The... More

    I typically stay in more "high-end" hotels, but my fiancee' wanted to try something with a more local flair...quaint, and simple. When we're in San Francisco, we don't usually spend much time in our room, so why pay $$$$ for a place to sleep. I let her do the picking, and she chose the Marina Motel for our stay. The... More

    Nice welcoming receptionist to check us in and was so helpful with all our questions. What a great place to walk into after driving thru the streets of SF - quiet and inviting. Our room was clean. We got one of the rooms with a kitchen which worked out great. Would recommend a room with a window off the street... More

    I liked everything about this motel, except that there are no staff there between 12am - 8am. My flight was scheduled to get into SFO late, and I had called the motel earlier in the day to let them know. The staff told me which room I would be in, and where my room key would be hidden. Well, I... More

    I'm very sorry to hear about your experience. And to be quite honest, i'm surprised as well. This is the first time that i have ever had a guest not get their room key. I'm looking into what happened, to ensure that this does not happen again. Although most of our guests check in up until midnight, we understand that... More

    The reception staff were wonderful. We had a family room which was two double rooms separated by a bathroom. The bed was the most comfortable ever. The motel was just gorgeous and filled with character. The airport shuttle also picked up here which was very convenient. Definitely recommended. We stayed in November 2013.

    Overall, this was a good spot for our stay. The room had the kitchenette and parking we were seeking, and was charming in appearance. Our room was quiet and comfortable, but very small with very little option for setting our things. Still, we functioned. There were some things I would have changed, such as screens on the windows, as we... More

    Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay overall. Part of the challenge in operating a property that started in 1939 is upkeep while maintaining authenticity. We try to keep everything in working order while maintaining the historic character & charm, hence the occasional sticky door/window. Regards, Allen More

    Well cared for, a true blast from the past. An old family owned and operated motel that has retained its natural beauty including the building itself. It's not for everyone, it's not the Ritz, but it is clean and historic. A great stay indeed

    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.
