“My professional opinion-OUTSTANDING”
Reviewed July 11, 2011

As a guy that runs a small hotel company it is not often that I stay in someone else's hotel. It is even more rare that I feel that it is necessary to run to Trip Advisor and tell the world about it.

This is a spectacular little inn located waterfront on the marina. It has EVERYTHING you would expect from the traditional franchised properties PLUS outstanding service. The rooms are large, spotlessly clean, and the staff is great. I found that if you asked for the least little thing they would respond in such a way as to exceed your expectations.

I particularly want to thank the sales person Janise for her help. I found it necessary to hold an unplanned meeting at the hotel and they made me feel like a king.

If you are in the Bay Area-including Oakland and San Francisco you should not miss this hotel. With waterfront land being what it is, this is an exceptional value-about $109. You won't beat this price anywhere in the area.

The hotel manager was surprise when we told her of a negative review, actually it was the Marina Village Inn that received the review. So sorry for that. Our stay at the San Leandro Marina Inn was an exceptional experience, the staff are professional and accomodating in our needs. The rooms are clean and most noteworthy is the awesome continental breakfast. It's by far the best hotel we ever stayed. The relaxing picturest of the Marina and park is great. What made it so perfect was the availability of shuttle to shopping and the BART. We loved it and will be returning soon. Hey I almost forgot, they even have a golf course across the street.

Room Tip: Get the top floor for best view of the area.

We were at the San Leandro Marina Inn for a family reunion. The hotel staff was very attentive and professional. The location of the hotel was perfect for our reunion with the park adjacent and the golf course across the street. Also, being right there on the marina gave everyone a relaxing view. I would definitely seek out this hotel the next time that I am in Northern California.

I had to think long and hard to find even a tiny detail that was negative. Although an older hotel, the condition and cleanliness were top-notch, just as if it had been remodeled within the year. Service was excellent, efficient, and always sincere and pleasant. Note: sincere. The location was nice, quiet, and away from any major freeways. My room even had a nice view of the sunset overlooking the San Leandro Marina. Horatio's, the adjacent eatery, provides their room service; however, if a full bar is what you desire, make the short walk across the parking lot. It's all well worth it! Lastly, the price could not be beat as compared to comparable chain hotels in proximity. (Oh, that tiny detail I found annoying? The size of the sink/vanity area was cramped -- as you would expect in an older hotel.

Room Tip: A room with a balcony facing the marina is nice!

You will be impressed with how nice this place is in every aspect. Location is pretty, right on the Bay, good room with comfy sofa & chair for reading, great breakfast, nice staff, and amenities you's expect to find in a more expensive hotel. We like this place!

Room Tip: I'll bet most rooms are just fine here.

Quiet, nice surroundings, very pleasant staff, reasonable prices. Not much more you can ask for.

The hotel is not the new, modern kind but certainly clean and quite comfortable. I wasn't crazy about the beds (too hard for my taste) but that's more of a personal thing.

What really impressed me (and I'm not easily impressed is that these guys don't nickle and dime you for every little thing. In fact, I think they win over a lot of customers with the no-cost added benefits. 1) shuttle to/from airport and locations close by, 2) breakfast with a decent selection of items, 3) baked cookies and milk each night, 4) water bottles in the rooms, 5) wi-fi throughout the hotel and business center computers / printer, 6) computer and printer just for printing your boarding pass, 7) several newspapers to choose from

Plus, they had nice new clean towels, flat screen tv in the rooms and every employee I met was terrific.

All in all, a great place that I will be returning to.
