Suitable for families when checking out San Francisco. Comfortable and friendly hotel, freshly baked cookies at 3pm and a heated pool was a great bonus! A bit on the expensive side but I still think that it's worth the money, San Francisco isn't cheap...

We had a great experience staying at the Hotel Del Sol. From the time we arrived, Oscar, at the front desk was nothing but warm and helpful. The room was great, clean and comfortable. The location was perfect for getting around and seeing the city. We could easily walk to stores, grocery store and good restaurants. It also has a... More

Highly recommend for families. Good location for public transport - no 30 bus from corner of chestnut & Webster st brings you to fishermans wharf area ( get off at Columbus) or stay on until union square for some retail therapy. Nice cafes / restaurants on chestnut street. Area felt safe for walking at night. Staff at front desk couldn't... More

The hotel is very friendly and beautiful. The pool is very nice and clean. The staff is welcoming. The rooms are quiet except communicating rooms. The hotel is very well located to visit SAN FRANCISCO.

Our family of four stayed in a family suite for a week earlier this August. We stayed here 8 years ago and chose to come back, and were glad we did. Our teens are obviously much bigger this time around, but we appreciated having the separate sleeping space for the two of them, even though the room was very small,... More

I waited over a month to write this review as I completed the hotel's survey online and I was waiting for a reply. I never heard from them so here goes. 1. Not sure what everyone else paid for a night here, but we were charged over $300 a night for a room with one queen bed and a sofa... More

No rooms available anywhere! Finally found Hotel del sol and were greeted by Phil the friendly front desk attendant. The room was comfortable and Phil gave us great recommendations for nearby places to eat. Would stay again.

Clean, comfortable rooms. Parking spaces are very tight, but I guess that's to be expected in San Francisco. Light continental breakfast in the morning. To be clear, this is a motel. Three levels, no lobby so you walk up the outside stairs to your room. Small pool. Fun colors, decent bed and linens. The rooms look bigger in the photos.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Designed to celebrate California's lively culture, the Hotel Del Sol is a cheerful explosion of the West Coast spirit. Once a 50s-style motor lodge, it has been newly transformed to offer the stylings and personalized service of a boutique hotel. The spacious guestrooms evoke the bright and airy interior of a California beach house. Relaxing hammocks, a sparkling pool and towering palm trees in the courtyard is a colorful feast for the eyes. ... more   less
