“Great Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

This is a lovely hotel at a very reasonable price. They have a shuttle that actually takes you everywhere. Between the clean rooms, the free extensive breakfast, the pool, the free bikes and that shuttle taking you all over, I wonder how they are making money...
The people working there were extremely nice and patient with me. I am usually not a needy guest but this time I was.
If you are traveling for business and want to skip the car, this is a good options. The only complaint is that the walking area only has two restaurants and the Bart is a bit far.

If you are looking for a great and affordable hotel in the San Francisco area don't miss The Marina Inn! This hotel is well maintained and the staff was fabulous! They were very welcoming and knowledgable about the area. Would definitely recommend!

Our room was clean, a bit small but very nice. The location is excellent. There is a very good seafood restaurant right next door. Very close to Oakland, San Jose, San Francisco. Quiet and comfortable. We have stayed here twice now, and next time we're in the area it will the third! Very well run - staff is both friendly and professional.

I love the San Leandro Marina Inn. The location is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed at. The rooms are exceptional, as is the service. The free continental breakfasts are wonderful. This is one of my favorite travel destinations.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the Marina. Gorgeous views.

I wouldn't even think about staying anywhere else if I'm in this area again. This staff could write a novel on How To Run a Hotel by The Pros. From the front desk experience to security to the overall experience, we had a marvelous stay.

Tips: ask for a room with a view (top floor) and take advantage of the free rental bikes. There are marvelous bike paths that go along the SF Bay-won't take more than 30 mins to enjoy it, and it's just marvelous. Free breakfast, good wifi, and free parking are my favorites when traveling and they excel at all three. Loved it-can't wait to go back.

Quiet, adequate accommodations with nice location relative to Oakland airport. Stayed on third floor, non smoking, which I agreed smelled like smoke. For me , the second biggest issue is quiet . It was quiet and clean . Efficient helpful staff. Complementary breakfast was better than most. Coffee was particularly good.
