This hotel was absolutely disgusting. I would never stay here again. There was blood on the mattress pad under the sheets. It was still red... meaning the maids saw the blood and just put a sheet on top of it. If the pad was washed.. it would have been brown or a faded red color. This was RED. That is... More

I stayed at the Hotel during the Dreamforce Salesforce conference. I had no choice frankly as the conference hotels were all completely full by the time I booked. This is a motel conveniently located in the Marin district in a safe part of town. It's nothing fancy by any means but my room was clean and since it was further... More

Fantastic location that allows for walking to many of San Francisco's great locations. The rooms are not well insulated and thus allow for the street noise to be heard in the room. Room was clean and sufficient, nothing exciting but good price and condition for the city. Front desk was great about making sure we parked in the proper place... More

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.
