Had a wonderful stay. Staff extraordinarily courteous, rooms cosy, quiet and clean! The hotel is perfectly located close to all amenities and is just a cut above the other motels in the area. Highly recommended!

Close to most of where we wanted to go. A bit dated, but clean and cozy. The free parking was a plus. They accommodated our late arrival, stored luggage after checkout, were very friendly. Tried to pay cash, but they prefer credit card, which was fine since we had it. The garages were a bit of a tight squeeze for... More

Love this place! From the kindness and hospitality of the front desk and the location. Our room was in the courtyard where each vehicle had it's own garage (free). Love the antique decor. Such a plus due to the high price of parking in the City and at many of the hotels. Can take public transportation from there to any... More

I was excited to stay here, I had read the reviews about Lou the original owner ,and how the property was now run by his grand daughter Heidi. We stayed in room 27. A cozy quiet room.

Dear Guests, We are very sorry that we could not resolve this issue to both of our satisfaction. Threatening us with a post of a bad review in order to get a refund does not sit well with us.

I stayed here in Feb 2015 for a quick stop off in San Francisco (on my way to Hawaii). It was much quieter compared to the last time I stayed in a more central hotel. I really enjoyed the marina district and it really wasn't too hard to get to the touristy spots with uber, walking, and public transport. I... More

Free parking, walking distance to the Palace of Fine Arts and restaurants, a kitchenette, and I could bring my dog for under $160 (off season). This has to be the best bargain in the city. I recommend that you request a room that does not overlook Lombard - I was in the back and noise was not an issue.

Marina Motel had great service, clean rooms and a wonderful location. We were able to walk everywhere from here. We stayed in a courtyard room, which was lovely and quiet. It was a short walk to our favourite breakfast spot - Home Plate.

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.
