We recently stayed at the Marina Motel for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. It's a great location with easy access to mass transit, so you can get anywhere you want to go in the city. If you have a car, they have free garage parking spaces on the property, which is a really big deal. The hotel property itself is really charming. There's a great courtyard with beautiful flowers and balconies. Our room had a queen sized bed that was really comfy. It also had a kitchen (not a kitchenette, but a full kitchen) and a great bathroom.
The only thing I'd add to the room would be a ceiling fan. We happened to be in San Francisco during an unusually hot week, so we had to sleep with the windows open because our room was so hot. I think that a fan would have helped out a lot.
