The room was clean and comfortable, it looks like this place was recently refurbished. It was hard to find something at a decent price in San Franciso, for $150 you couldn't really find much that looked reliable on line. We ended up staying 2 nights here and there was so much to do in San Francisco that you won't spend... More

If you just need a place to hang your hat, park and sleep when you're not sightseeing, this is a budget hotel. However, it is showing its age and could use some basic maintenance--saran wrap on the smoke alarm, towel bar off the bathroom wall (not needed, but tacky), outlet behind night stand needed cover plate (scary wobbly for plugging...

Basically this hotel was clean and the staff were friendly, the location was close to pier 39 and the parking and wifi were free but I wouldn't stay here again. Everything is very old, it is in desperate need of a renovation and the thought of how many people have slept on that mattress really bothered me. This is partly... More

Nice clean and tidy room with friendly staff and great location. Walking distance to North Beach area with fisherman's wharf etc. Paul and Amy made me feel very welcome and were very easy going. Would definitely stay again.

We were visiting San Fransisco on a driving holiday heading down the Californian coast. As we had the car we were looking for a basic budget motel close to Fishermans Wharf. I was shocked at the prices in San Fransisco, with many low rate hotels coming in at $200-250 per night. This was the cheapest we could find that had... More

This motel is not big but the rooms are well kept and very clean. The beds are comfortable and it is in a prime location with the wharf, a convenience store and gas station within walking distance. The owner and staff are very helpful informative and friendly. An inexpensive and great stay.

If you are looking for a room with plenty of amenities, this is not the one. If you are looking for an inexpensive clean but outdated room with very personal service then this is it. The staff was very friendly and the room was clean. Very outdated but clean. The value was ok especially with the free parking. The staff... More

I was looking for a hotel within walking distance to the waterfront in San Francisco at a reasonable price. The location was perfect, the room was nice and clean and everyone was really friendly. One of the best things is the free off-street parking! That was huge - I parked my car and walked everywhere for two of the three... More

I selected this hotel due to its proximity to the Fisherman's Wharf. The price per night was outrageous but other hotels around it were even higher so went for a location. The foyer can barely be called as such - it is a desk in a tiny room with a dirty dirty carpet. Once I saw the carpet in the... More

All in all a very average motel. The rooms are pretty dated, but everything was clean and functioning. In my opinon it was absolutely overpriced - but this is more a San Francisco-in-general-problem. At least parking was free and the staff was very friendly and helpful. And the location is pretty good... Will have been my last time in SF.... 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.
