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....

Good hotel in a central location. Cafe bar attached for breakfast. About a 20min walk to Fishermans Wharf. Plenty of bus stops on Lombard St Only gripe was the lack of view from our room due to overgrown tree!!

Lovely 70's décor but spotlessly clean. Basically you park up (free parking - please note), check in, go to room, and that's about all the contact you need. It's no way a full service hotel but it does the job. No double glazing but to be honest we slept well even though the road was a busy one outside. Area...

Had lovely spacious & quiet room at the rear of hotel with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge, wifi hit & miss. Reception were as friendly...

My husband and I stayed here on our first night after flying for over 15 hours. There was a bit of confusion about payment via expedia but once it was sorted we were grateful for the free parking and comfy bed! Nothing flash but room was clean and good size.

Stayed at the Inn for 3 nights and will stay there again on our next visit to San Francisco. The bed was so comfortable, the room was big and it was very clean. We felt as if we were natives as the area wasn't touristy yet there were lots of restaurants and cafes nearby. The staff, especially Misty and Sabrina,...

We stayed at this hotel at the beginning of May, and we enjoyed our stay here, the employees were helpful, and gave us some nice advice. The hotel is near the touristy locations (which we liked) and there were a lot of restaurants near. we didn't had a car anymore when we were here but the free parking is definitely...

It is close to bus services into the city. It takes about 30minutes to walk to Fishermans Wharf. The room was of a good size, clean and well serviced daily. Worse aspect was the air conditioning. It was so noisy that we simply had to have it switched off at night, even though this made the room stuffy. The reception...

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.
