We booked a room here at the last minute on a trip to San Francisco. The hotel was older and some decor was dated but they clearly had done the best with what they had. Everything was extremely clean and the staff were helpful friendly and accommodating.

We've stayed at the hotel just after New Years' Eve earlier this year. We've stayed at one of the double bed rooms (accommodating well two people). The room is very spacious. The facilities and the room itself are a bit outdated, but everything was nice and clean. They do not offer breakfast per say, but they do leave some goodies... More

We arrived at the hotel past midnight after a long drive from Las Vagas. That night, We were put in the worst ever hotel room I've stayed in USA by far. The room was very small and did not suite our family. The beds were horrible. Never slept in such an uncomfortable bed in my life. All this agony because... More

This is a fairly good place for the price you pay and the location. The fact that guests get free parking makes it even better. The rooms are nice, the bathroom is huge by hotel standards, and the area seemed safe to me. Keep in mind it's on Lombard. It's a busy street at all hours. (Ear plugs are provided... More

Driven past this place for years - recently we decided to come to the city to see a show and spend the night ans play tourist the next day. The Francisco Inn was perfect for a short stay - we checked in in the afternoon, changed ans went out to dinner, the show and some fun afterward. Good location whether... More

Stayed here three nights on a road trip. Location is great. Really handy for marina, crookedest road and about 10-15 mins walk from Fisherman's wharf. The rooms are small but adequate with fridge and microwave and everything was clean. However, road noise at night was really bad making a good night's sleep difficult. There's a free breakfast but this is... More

I wanted a place near the city with free parking and free breakfast. The place is is not too far off the beaten path and the room was clean. Yes it is dated, but still fine and the night clerk was very nice and helpful. What annoyed me was the "breakfast". I appreciate a place with a nice spread (yogurt,... More

Was a good value, given the price per square inch in SF. Was walking to Fort Mason Center for QS conference, which was pleasant trek through neighborhood and around a city park. Local food was great, The Green Restaurant that I read about in learning about Steve Jobs' life was nice too. Overall good value.

This hotel is really good.. the rooms are huge and very quiet. You are a few minutes from great restaurants and you have easy transportation from there to the Bay or to other touristic places. But you can easily walk from the hotel to the Pier 39 area.

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.
