The location is excellent. The views of the city are the best. This is a small boutique hotel that does not have a tremendous amount of offerings. The staff was super. I found the room to be nice but not over the top like I might expect for the price. The wine tasting and breakfast were both good. I would... More

The ferry is a nuisance. Pay the $1000's of dollars or whatever it takes to get a room away from it. The view is also interrupted by over grown plants that divide the balconies. I envied the people on the ferry visiting for the day and leaving. I felt like a fool sitting there thinking how I could have gotten... More

Luxurious stay in charming Sausalito, with the best view of the City from your own balcony. Boats, harbor seals, Alcatraz all in view. Great breakfast, and wine in the afternoon. You can meet other interesting guests, or take your wine and cheese back and enjoy on your own balcony. Close to the ferry to the City, as well as other... More

We spent a Wednesday night at the hotel. The room was wonderful-with a sitting area outside the room that was just above the bay. Wine and cheese from 5-7, walking distance to everything, very comfortable and did I say it before -beautiful view of the San Francisco skyline, sitting just feet away from the lapping bay ( we were on...

This is the second time staying at Inn Above Tide and it was even better than the first. Pulling in their secluded drive right off the circle by the park and ferry terminal feels like a being ushered into an elite private villa. I don't think I've met friendlier bellmen and desk clerks, and they all conspired to make us... More

We loved our stay in Sausalito and adored the Inn Above Tide. We stayed just one night in a queen room on the second floor. Very private deck with an amazing view on the bay and San Francisco. The staff was wonderful and recommended a delicious restaurant for dinner. Very very romantic get away. We will go back for sure!

Great concept - luxury room right on the water in a great little bayside touristy town. Execution, however, is very poor. We stayed in room 101 for what was supposed to be a romantic anniversary weekend (which I told the person on the phone when I made the reservation). At nearly $700 a night, I expected a really quite and... More

I brought my wife to Sausalito for her birthday weekend and stayed at the Inn Above the Tide. We loved our room, the balcony overlooking the water / San Francisco was fantastic. The Inn was quiet at night (contrary to another review). We used the hotel bikes on Sat. for a 25 mile bike ride along the coast, took advantage... More

Beautiful property, but unfortunately we couldn't stay because the room was not quiet at all and I am a very light sleeper. After calling in advance and talking to someone who described all the rooms as very quiet, we had booked a Grand Deluxe room. Unfortunately, the hotel only has two rooms of this type: one faces the ferry and... More
