The price is great, 99.00 weekdays, 179 weekends, Great deal, EXTREMELY CLEAN, Comfy beds, This area is so darn expensive and we had a hard time finding something reasonable. This place is nice for the money, Really close to the pier and attractions are all relatively close, drive 4 blocks east and you run right into lombard street. Free parking...

The room was clean, but very poky. Good location to Fisherman's Wharf and easy access to public transport. Not a lot of facilities.

I really think that if you consider yourself in the category of high maintenance or easily complains, you might not want to stay here. I can understand why some people would give bad reviews. But honestly the place isn't bad at all. If you want something spectacular, go stay somewhere else. I had my reservations about the bad reviews. But...

We read some negative reviews here so weren't sure what to expect. But we were pleasantly surprised - the room was clean, comfortable and well equipped and the location excellent. There was some traffic noise, but not to an extent that it stopped us sleeping. Service was fine though we didn't have any problems to deal with. Free parking was...

I was really dissapointed with this hotel. It was outrageously overpriced but we booked late and this was all that was left in the area. The front desk was unprofessional and the rooms left a lot to be desired. I'll stay at a Travelodge or Motel 6 before I stay here again. I'm not hard to please but this place...

You get what you pay for here... the room smelled like old wet weather (what you would expect from a hotel near the bay I suppose). Once you get used to the smell, it's hard to ignore the sound of the upstairs neighbor's toilet flushing and the subsequent water trickling down the pipes in your walls- maybe someone just forgot...

So I went there and I was not expecting much but I did not pay much so that's allright. The thing that bug me the most was the day prior to leaving I asked if they could CALL me a taxi to take me to the airport the next morning. So the next morning I check out and I realize...

Very clean and roomy room. Parking is tight but available, so that's OK. I can't imagine anything better for less than twice the price, because it is as good as any of the other Inns (if not better), but was cheaper and better located than them in San Fran.

In the past thirty years, I have travelled a great deal on business, both home and abroad. Rare is the hotel that combines everything I desire at an affordable rate. The Francisco Bay Inn is located in downtown San Francisco not far from many of the City's best attractions. The hotel rooms were spotless, well appointed, quiet, and the staff...

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.
