“A gem on the Bay”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

What a wonderful experience. Friendly staff on arrival and departure, a room with a view and all the most pleasant amenities, excellent bar and restaurant, in a quiet, scenic location on the Bay overlooking a yacht harbor. We were looking for an affordable and convenient park and fly location and found a place worth going to for the stay itself.

The hotel is unique- very cute and charming for an airport hotel, with nice views. The staff is a little incompetent- it took me 25 minutes on the phone to make a simple reservation and they were similarly slow at check in/check out. Airport shuttle doesnt start until 6 or 7am so not great for a morning flight but you can take a $10-15 cab.

I stayed at The Inn for four days whilst attending a conference at a conference centre nearby. It is a lovely hotel! The rooms are beautiful, super comfortable and the views are great! There is a walking/cycling path running along the Bay just outside the hotel, which is great to work off some of the conference build-up on!! The staff were excellent, I had some issues with lost luggage and they could not have been more helpful. The food was good, the breakfast delivered to the room very nice and exactly within the chosen time slot. I would definitely stay here again next time I am in the area.

I chose this hotel as I wanted to be near to the airport and accessible to San Mateo (on the train), but didn't want to stay in a bleak chain hotel. I made the right choice. The hotel is welcoming and colourful, with eclectic decor. The room is extremely comfortable, with a fireplace, high bed, lots of space, and a stunning view of the marina. Apart from the wind, it's a lovely and quiet spot, and a great place to go for a calming walk along the shore.

The staff are extremely friendly and offer exceptional service. They gave me lots of advice about things to do and every morning bring a complimentary breakfast to your room. They let me use the airport shuttle various times to be dropped off and picked up from the Caltrain station. One morning the driver was late arriving, so they'd booked me a taxi and paid for it themselves!

If you want to see the sights of San Francisco, don't stay here, but if you need to be near the airport and want somewhere to relax in the meantime, this is a great choice.

This is one great hotel!! Recently remodeled, when you enter your room you're stunned by the beautiful view of the neighboring park, marina, and San Francisco bay. Our room, which was small enough to be called quaint, had a working fireplace, huge bathroom, and an outrageously comfortable bed. Breakfast, which is included with the room price, is delivered to your room each morning at the time of your choosing. Could this be any more civilized?

I can't say I'm usually a fan of hotel restaurants but we had appetizers one afternoon and the food wasn't just passable, it was tremendous. We also noticed that the restaurant was also packed each night for dinner and looked great. Next time...

I'm a check-in and check-out quickly kind of guy and never seem to get to know the hotel staff. In this case however, the computer is located next to the front desk and while checking email we actually became friends with several of the women at the front desk as well as the guy who drives their van. My wife even exchanged email addresses. They couldn't be any nicer or more friendly.

We booked using Expedia and got a very quiet first floor room near the front desk. The upstairs rooms we were told are more expensive and had a better view. Frankly, after looking at a few before we left, we couldn't tell the difference. All rooms were the same and had the same view and the same amenities. Stick with Expedia and don't overpay.

Room Tip: Best rate is on Expedia. All rooms are identical.

Place is very conveniently located close to both airport and city. Parking is free - not a small thing in SF area. Breakfast is good and served in the room alcoves overlooking the bay, yachts and a small flock of Canadian geese (guess we got lucky). Rooms are very clean but may use a bit of renovation. Reception personnel are extremely friendly and helpful. Very nice stay overall.

Room Tip: Ask for second or third floor rooms to get better

Great location in Oyster Point, small charming hotel. Lovely spacious rooms with fireplaces, great views over the bay and comfy beds. Only down side is that without a car there isnt much access beyond the Bay.

Room Tip: Bay view
