“Bad signal WiFI”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

We have been there for 5 nights and the general opinion about this hotel is good. The only problem was the WiFi conection. It was too slow and very difficult to connect.
The room was clean. Breakfast was basic, but the presentación didn't like.
The location is good because we found free parking close and there aren't homless around.
Is quite near by the Fisherman Warf taking the bus 30.

Stayed for 4 nights in this hotel and found it to be very pleasant. It's a budget hotel so our expectations weren't too high.

The decor and furnishings were 'dated', but it was clean and very comfortable.

The staff were very helpful and friendly. And the hotel's location was perfect for us, not too far away from Fisherman's Wharf and other SF attractions.

Would stay here again.

We stayed 4 nights at the Marina Inn and it was a very pleasant stay.

Our room was large, nice and quiet and the bed was very comfortable.

The hotel breakfast is very basic but does the job. It consists of toast, jam, yoghurt, hard boiled eggs and tea, coffee and orange juice.

The staff were all very helpful and the hotel Wifi worked all the time.

The location is perfect, within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf but not too close that its madly busy.

We greatly enjoyed our stay.

You get what you pay for here... Hotel is in a great spot... Local bars, close to park & Fishermans wharf... Also, bus stop is one block away... Hotel is old, smells funky and carpet is stained. Staff is ok... The man (didn't catch his name) is VERY helpful! If you're not planning on being in your room except for sleeping it's ok... If you want relaxation not the place... And bring ear plugs Bc it's noisy if you're on the main road side

I strongly recommend you to avoid this hotel because of bed-bugs! Changing room won't help, since if there are bed-bugs in one room, they are in every. Location of this inn is OK, however you may find a better place in the same area. The only good thing about this hotel is its personnel. Guys are really nice and helpful.

Room Tip: No good rooms in this inn.

We stayed at the Marina Inn for a week and it suited our needs to watch the Americas Cup and explore San Francisco perfectly. It is inexpensive accommodation in a great location. Just across from a pick up point for the double decker tourist bus, on the city bus route and within walking distance of the waterfront and down to Chestnut where there a loads of great eateries. Also EXCELLENT cafe just up on Lombard for a great brunch.
The staff at the Marina are friendly and very helpful, it is clean, the room was large with a huge bed and we were very comfortable. Breakfast was simple, boiled eggs, yogourt pottles, toast, bananas, tea coffee and fruit juice - cant complain about that when it's free.
Thanks for the stay Marina. We'd happily come again.
