Good things first: free parking, big and clean room and bathroom. So-so: little noisy if you got the room facing Lombard street The location issue is a little tricky. It's in Marina district, close to Fort Mason but pretty far from Fisherman's Wharf and the half an hour walk there is boring (only motels and apartments houses but there is... More

The hotel is clean and well appointed and is on the busy Lombard Street area of North San Francisco. Fisherman's Wharf is about $10 in an Uber can and there are several great diners and restaurants within a block of the hotel. We originally requested a room at the rear due to the noise on Lombard St, especially on weekends,... More

The location in San Francisco was perfect. The room itself was lovely. Easy to get into from the street, but the spaces are rather few and all a bit tight, as you might expect in a city where parking can be tricky (and sometimes nearly impossible). It's free, though, which we appreciated! There are signs posted to the effect that... More

Our visit started smoothly. Easy to drive in off the busy street. Quick check in with a very helpful member of staff. We drove through the lobby level parking spaces (several for disabled guests), turned right and right again to access the underground parking area. Plenty of space to park. Decent security on external doors - the room access card... More

We had a very nice corner room. A little noisy from the traffic but not too bad. Nice amenities plus coffee pot. Bed was comfortable. A little pricey but not bad. Free parking while you stayed there. Helpful front desk.

We picked this lodge because we couldn't get reservations at a sister inn. Thought this one would be as good. But it is old. It was clean and did have free parking -- big, big pluses in San Francisco. The elevator scared me each time I had to use it. Electrical outlets were almost nonexistent -- wish they had furnished...

Chelsea Inn on Lombard is so well positioned for cafes, restaurants, bars, Crooked Street, the Presidio, beach front and much more. You've chosen San Fran right? So you know it's hilly, but that's all part of its attraction. The hotel is comfortable, has super large rooms and free wifi. The staff are friendly/helpful. It is probably due an upgrade but...

We stayed at the Chelsea Motor Inn and let me tell you, this place is all about location. It is on the Bay Area, on Lombard St. You can grab the Big Bus Tour San Francisco right at the corner of the hotel to go sightseeing wherever you want, and if you can brave it, walk up that street to... More

Dear Karina, Thank you very much for your appreciation on your recent stay. We understand the noise issue in your room. We plan to change our windows during our renovation by the end of the year and hope to reduce the noise level with the new double pane windows. We look forward to seeing you again in our renovated rooms. More

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.
