“A Benifactor Member Of MMC/ Great Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

I have been coming to the MMC since the 1950's! Many changes over many years. The club is trying to capture more of the convention & tourist market. We stay frequently as members of this club, but have had up an down experiences. This last stay was the first time out of 3 recent stays that we actually got the room we requested, tho we had reserved in July for Nov.
The location is the best thing about the club, perfect for walking everywhere.
Breakfast is not the best in the world with loads of starch...and no bacon!!!
Cocktail time is very generous, tho often there is no place to sit down..
need to re think this one and go to a 2 drink system...
We have eaten in the restaurant 2 times and will try again, service needs sprucing up, we had guests and the dinner side plates did not get cleared at all from the table! ugh! some of the dishes are quite good some very average for the prices...
We use the club because of the location. Its is fairly basic and don't expect and glitz...

Room Tip: It can be noisy facing Sutter St or Mason St

I ended up bidding on two nights in this hotel at an auction and winning. I should have read more carefully because they had to be used on Sun-Thursday night, I also was given a 50 dollar gift certificate to the restaurant. My husband deployed before he and I could use the nights so I took my Mom and two children. We went the week of Thanksgiving Sun-Tues, as their restaurant does not serve dinner and we were out sight seeing at lunch time I was unable to use the certificate. Their free breakfast, however, was fantastic.

The room was smaller than we normally get but lovely and clean and my only real complaint is that there is absolutely NO counter space in the bathroom. Had the closet and bathroom been better designed there would have been some room. This was a great location for the few things we did and we enjoyed our first trip to San Fran.

We will definitely consider returning but will probably get a suite for a bit more room.

This hotel is amazing, just at the lobby we can see many peaces of marines´ history, including they have one floor only to place a true museum.
It´s very well located, and counts with great rooms and great staff.
The restaurant, in the 12th floor is wonderfull counting with a especial sight of San Francisco down town, some part of the bridges and a beautiful vision of the bay.
As they are a marines´s club, you need to book your stay too early because it´s often full.
To do business or vacation, it´s a great deal. I really recomend.

Room Tip: Rooms at the left side are better, because of the sight, and ask for higher floors to seize the bay...

I found the hotel through Tripadvisor and had very good reviews and a reasonable price. Our experience was great. Located in Union Square, it has a curious atmosphere as it is really a Marines Club built after the world war. The service kind and careful about details, rooms clean and nice, breakfast included and a restaurant with a gorgeous view of SF downtown skyline from the 12th floor. Parking four doors away at a reduced price for guests. in summary a perfect place for our stay in SF.

I'm a former Marine who is perpetual member of this hotel. I and my wife always try to stay here when we're in S.F. First of all if you check prices in S.F. it's hard to find a decent hotel under $200.00. Secondly very few give you a great buffet breakfast and two hour happy hour with a pianist who plays requests. This hotel also has a wonderful steak restaurant on the 12th floor, along with a pool, access to a gym and a truly educational library. On Father's day several years ago we were at happy hour and met a former WW II vet and a former Ambassador, what an interesting and informative time that was. Parking is close and at $27.00 very reasonable for S.F. We love this hotel and have never had any problems. My only complaint is that it's booked up for our next trip which tells you something. Read some of the average comments and found them to be very nit picky. For those of you who think this hotel is just average, please stay somewhere else as it's leaves room for the rest of us. While in S.F. attend the Beach Blanket Babylon floor show, it's hilarious. Look on line for cheap places to eat and there are a lot of them. Park your car and walk, it's good exercise and use the trolley for the fun and experience.

Room Tip: The smaller rooms are fine but if you want more room get a king size room which has more windows. A...

I didn't know what to expect when I arrived into this hotel at first. It received rave reviews but didn't look like a top notch hotel. I checked at 11:30 at night with a reservation and the room I was in was clean but faced a brick wall ten feet away and the carpet and bathroom could use some updates. But beyond that, everything was great. The staff was kind and helpful, the location was great, near Union Square. The breakfast was fantastic with an amazing view of the city. The bed was comfortable. What the hotel might come up short with in perks, it makes up for with its drops of love.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't have a view of a brick wall.

Excellent central location, beautiful and well maintained historic building, staff were fantastic and very helpful. Breakfast was brillaint. The Marine's veteran's association adds an interesting extra side to the hotel. Will definitely be returning.
