Old hotel with a little character. The staff is friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable and they provide a lot of good fluffy pillows. The location is good. Close to Fisherman's Wharf, Union St cafe's and shops as well as Chestnut St which is full of coffee shops and quaint stores. The bus is easy to catch on Lombard...

The hotel was nice, the room was very cute. It was close to everything and the staff were pretty friendly. Only complaint would be the breakfast, which was only juice, porridge and croissants, without anything to put on them. We ended up buying our own cereal. Other than that it was a good hotel at a reasonable price and I...

Spent two nights here recently on my first trip to San Francisco. Definitely shows its age, but the Victorian style atmosphere is charming and comfortable. Rooms are very clean. Amenities are basic. Staff is excellent. Free wireless internet is fast enough. Breakfast is probably the most meager offering I have ever seen at a hotel that offers breakfast. Good location...

The staff was so friendly and informative. The deluxe room suited us. I had not visited SF for 25 yrs, and was nicely surprised that the neighborhood was still great. the Inn is close to everything due to transportation choices. I will definitely recommend this Inn. Thank you for a wonderful time.

As my friend said, "the area is a cultural wasteland." He wasn't wrong. It's a lovely location for quiet, but a little far to walk to food, entertainment, or the beach. And parking was a nightmare. That said the hotel was really nice for the price, and the quiet was lovely. (Breakfast left a little to be desired, however...). I'd...

I have been staying at the Marina Inn at least once a year since 1988. So I have been there at least THIRTY times. In the beginning, it was so wonderful, they had LARGE delicious muffins in the morning, and free sherry from 4-6pm. About ten years ago they stopped that and had packaged muffins and closed the kitchen room...

Just like staying at grandma's house. Room is about the size of a normal bedroom with an attached bathroom. The shower stall is short so if your any taller then 5'5 you might have to bend down. breakfast is very basic hard boiled eggs, porridge and toast with juice and coffee. Very clean room. I would stay here again.

I like to rest when I travel and big cities are known to be noisy so when I asked for a quiet room and got just that this September at the Marina Inn I was very happy. Yes, with a little bit of TLC the real wood beds and furniture would look nicer and I have seen larger rooms but...

When my fiance and I decided to try staying in the city the night of a concert, I was worried finding an affordable hotel would be impossible. So I do what I usually do, read every article the NYTimes' Frugal Traveler wrote about SF on a budget, and found this place. WE LOVED IT! The interior is gorgeous, retro/vintage cool...

We stayed here in May for approx 4 nights. The hotel is situated in a really nice area of San Francisco - the Marina District which has plenty of great local restaurants and amentities as well as being in walking distance to Pier 39 and Fishermans Wharf. There is also a local bus stop nearby which can take you right...

Staying in Marina District

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.
