The hotel has a nice location with views of the marina and bay. The hotel is pretty average as is the morning continental breakfast. The male staff are very helpful and friendly. The female staff, not so much. They do provide cookies and milk in the evening if you are so inclined. Our first evening was very noisy, with a... More

Staying in San Francisco is expensive. So we chose this really nice hotel... But we would probably spend the extra money next time, as transport from San Leandro is about 2 hours back and forth with Bart and the free hotel shuttle. Good hotel, nice mexican restaurant nearby ( El Torito ), awesome afternoon cookies and okay breakfast for American... More

Nice hotel and location. Only bad side is its close to airport so you hear air traffic but it's not that bad. Great location on a bay marina. We stayed to go to a Oakland raiders game and wanted to be close to the airport and the BART transit system. Hotel was clean and nice. They had complementary breakfast ever... More

Clean, comfortable rooms with updated amenities in neighborhood location. Close to area attractions such as Old Fisherman's Warf, Aquarium and Cannery Row. Randy's sandwich shop next door was excellent!

We had a wonderful stay at the Marina Inn, and it was mostly due to the wonderful and thoughtful staff. The hotel itself was great. We got an upgraded room facing the marina which was great, but all of our interactions with the staff were fantastic. We were greeted warmly upon arrival, and the front desk continued to help us...

I've stayed here many times over 20+ years and never had a bad experience. There is a golf course across the street and a very nice restaurant next door. Continental breakfast is good and they do offer a gluten free breakfast cereal.

Our stay started out very rocky, but Management and staff were able to turn things around over the weekend. First, the hotel is located in a quiet area, right on the marina, next to a park and golf course, two restaurants (discount with your hotel key) within walking distance. The hotel is older, but seems to have been updated over... More

We stayed for 4 nights & picked the Marina Inn as a good location for exploring the local area as our daughter was moving in to a new college. We were a family of 4 from NZ. We felt very comfortable at the hotel as the staff at Reception and other service staff were so friendly (& genuine). The facilities... More
