We spent a weekend in San Francisco. This hotel is located outside of the city but is close to the highway so we do not put time to drive to SF. The hotel is very good and clean. Breakfast is okay. This is a hotel that I recommend for families as the price is reasonable.

Nice rooms, nice size, great marina view, very peaceful location. The breakfast buffet does need to improve, to include scrambled eggs, all you get is hard-boiled eggs with the shells on-what gives? Good pool, spa, exercise room; what more can I say?

The Marina Inn in San Leandro is a GREAT choice if travling out or into the Oakland Airport. The staff is excellent and the rooms are clean. My only worry is that it get so popular they start increasing the rates. Not the Hilton or Marriott but very comfortable and Family friendly.

Nicely located. Ideal for 1 or 2 nights after arrival in SF from overseas. Quiet. Excellent spot for jogging in the morning along the bayshore. OK swimming pool. Friendly staff and good breakfast. Restaurants in neighbourhood are overprized but there are nog a lot of options. You get 10% discount in 2 resto's nearby. Nice walk possible in the Redwood... More

We loved the location. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good. Our bed was comfortable and the shower roomy. Due to allergies, we requested a fragrance free room. It was very low in fragrance. The sheets and towels did not have a fragrance! After opening the window, the room was very good. Yes, the windows open!... More

Pros - hotel itself Con - location Overall, the stay was great. Very friendly staff, good amenities, excellent breakfast each morning, and a nice cookies each afternoon. In fact, the breakfast each morning is above and beyond what I expect from a continental breakfast. Bagels, danishes, waffles, hard boiled eggs, fruit, and yogurt to name a few of the items....

Not my favorite hotel ever, but it seems like they've undergone some much-needed renovation lately. Breakfast was good and varied. We didn't have a view of the lovely SF bay, but we really just needed a place to sleep between exploring San Francisco and our flight the next day to Hawaii. Bed was comfortable and so freaking close to the... More

The Marina Inn on San Francisco Bay offers a great deal. Front desk staff is wonderful. Call the 800 number of the hotel to make a reservation, online not as informative. Free shuttle back and forth to the Oakland Airport and BART Station. 20 minute BART ride to the Embarcadero in San Francisco. Free parking, nice selection of free breakfast... More
