Well anyone who complains about this place is simply an unhappy person! Location was fantastic, safe, close to everything, able to walk anytime in the neighbourhood and not feel uncomfortable! Chestnut street one block up from the hotel is a great street to walk, eat, drink! The rooms are big and spacious, clean as a whistle and the people who...

We were tipped to this hotel by friends who had stayed there a couple of years ago. It's in a great area, close to many local shops & restaurants. With covered parking included, clean and tasteful accommodations, and friendly and helpful staff for guidance, we could not have found a nicer place to stay in SFO.

This is my second stay here, the last time was 21 years ago! I loved it then, still do now. First stay was a 2 bedroom unit, really cute and comfy. But so long ago, I can't provide details. This time was just in a standard hotel room. The room itself is quite large, the bed was comfy. The room...

Stayed at the Cow Hollow for one night following a cruise. Rooms were clean, spacious and quiet. The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. This motel is in a great location, central to a lot of areas. I would definitely stay here again.

This place initially looked a bit tired from the outside, but the rooms were of a good standard and most importantly clean. I stayed over a weekend and there was quite a bit of noise from the surrounding bars and restaurants late into the night. Then again this means it's close to bars and restaurants which makes it convenient. One...

This has got to be the best money/value deal you can get in San Fran? Location: great, around the corner from Chestnut st. Staff: great, the friendliest and most dedicated staff we've encountered during our road trip through the south west. Room: wow! Great size, very clean, up to date interior. Same goes for the bathroom. Pricing: is it cheap?...

Nice area with lots of restaurants/pubs within easy walking distance. Immediate area felt safe for walking at night. Very nice free underground parking thats clean and easy to get in and out of on the side street. Not your typical lobby - detached from elevators, but friendly staff was ready with recommendations for breakfast and dinner, also printing boarding passes....

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.
