The reviews said it was clean but it was not! Stained towels, long black hairs and 'other' hairs on linen, towels, pillows, in the fridge and even stuck between polystyrene cups!!! We had only been checked in for a few hours and the toilet became blocked. The kitchen appliances and tray with cups etc. were grimy and dirty. The whole...

This is a 5 star review based on the property type. I'm not comparing this to the high-end hotels in Union Square, but this place fit all of our needs. We needed something clean and inexpensive for one night in a safe neighborhood with at least some restaurants/bars/convenience stores within walking distance. Bonus: no charge for parking. This end of...

I stayed in room 20. The towels aren't clean and I believe that the ones that you clean the floors with are also used for bodies or they wash them all together. The rooms aren't very clean, they are okay. I stayed there for a week, the location is good and near by a bus station. The owner was really...

While the rooms are not top notch, the owners are super friendly. I was there with my son, and we felt safe and comfortable. The traffic nearby can get really loud but we enjoyed it since it's a part of a big city. Would definitely satyr there again!

Bed was comfortable. .Room needed a deep cleaning. Coffee pot was filthy and gummy stuff stuck in it. After my husband cleaned it all out it still didn't work. The phone in the room didn't work so we had to use our cellphone to call the front desk. There were 3 small very thin bath towels and ONE hand towel..NO...

We arrived late for a 2 night stay so we could see L A. The room was adequate for what we needed. Traffic in the morning was heavy and the rooms all faced the road so be prepared for a noisy awakening

When I drive into San Francisco, this is my motel of choice. I own a big car, and it fits just fine in their covered carport. One night I arrived late on a busy weekend and the lot was full. The desk clerk invited me to park in front of the office overnight, which is what I call service. I've...

I live in SF and many times when I have friends visiting and don't know where they should stay, I try to find a great location and a good deal. Knights Inn is perfect, really close to beautiful Crissy Fields and to the Presidio, simple but good value for the money, would totally recommend staying here!

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.
