We booked this at the last minute, but we were not disappointed. A regular motel just a short walk from Fisherman's Wharf. It was clean and more than adequate. Free and ample car parking is a bonus. If you're a light sleeper it might not be your bag as the motel is located on a busy street corner. One night...

We have stayed here twice already and I believe we will stay again. This place has a great location and a free parking, which is basically all you can ask for in San Francisco. The rooms are not very big, but they are nice and clean. It is just right on a very crowded street, so it can get pretty...

It is a hotel with few rooms, therefore, quiet, although the rooms facing the Lombard Street can be a bit noisy but nothing that prevents sleep, ...refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, spacious bathroom, bed a bit hard but bearable and good pillows. Cleanliness as you would expect in this type of establishment... An hotel to take a shower and sleep after...

For 3 nights we paid over $900 There was one parking space left when we got there and we left our car there 3 days. Initial...

Upon arriving at the Francisco Bay Inn, we were treated with the utmost respect and generosity. The office staff was incredibly accommodating, extending discounted rates that far exceeded our expectations. Not only did we experience such extraordinary kindness with the booking, but we were also greeted with the warmest hospitality, leaving the office with maps for each of San Francisco's...

The location near on Lombard near Van Ness was convenient. The rooms were basic and, on a Saturday night, received a lot of noise from the street. Fortunately, ear plugs were provided, although only one pair. Breakfast consisted of donuts, a few croissants, and instant coffee. We opted instead for the GOLO Cafe, a little hole in the wall with...

We were over charged for 1 additional night and by booking.com. the room smelled dirty, they shower door wouldn't open or close correctly. Once we asked about getting anything rectified, they told me nothing they could do. They lost me as customer for sure!

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.
