Wow! I've never been so IMPRESSED with the quality of service at a hotel in my life! I don't travel frequently, but the staff of the hotel left me in tears as we said goodbye on our last night. (We stayed for 7 nights, total). Staff were super helpful, friendly, and eager to point out local attractions, restaurants, and bars....

There isn't anything wrong with this hotel. It's in a great location (lots of differnt mini lines to choose from), it's a short walk to many different places to eat and drink (Union Street is great). I'm not sure what people really expect from this place for what you are paying to stay there. In a city where most hotels...

We stayed in the Marina Inn for two nights in January 2012. We initially intended to stay for a third night but we did not have a great experience here and we moved on. The positives: 1. The location is good, it's about a half hour walk to downtown. San Francisco is easy to navigate as it is laid out...

I found Marina Inn on Tripadvisor, and despite some hesitation, I booked here because the location and price ultimately won out. Essentially, I found what was described by other reviewers to be, more or less, true: place is loud with the constant rumbling of Lombard Street; my sheet was stained; could hear the snorer in the room next door; and...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights. The accommodations were basic, but enjoyable! I liked the homey feel of the hotel. Two complaints-PARKING (there is absolutely no parking in the area. They need to work with another hotel and charge the guests to use the lot) and the BREAKFAST (it was a joke...pieces of bread piled up on...

The price is what makes this hotel attractive. For about $50 you get a small, fairly clean room in a decent neighborhood. There is absolutely no parking available - anywhere! There are fun places to walk to and the neighborhood feels safe. The noise level is HORRIBLE, though. I felt as if I tried to sleep on a freeway overpass....

This hotel has very different reviews on tripadvisor and google. We went ahead and booked for one night and extended for two more. The price was low enough to take some disadvantages. On the plus side; the staff was very friendly and helpful. Although the hotel offers no parking, they do work with a local travellodge. For ten dollars a...

Normally this hotel is a three in my book, but it's so difficult to find a good low-cost hotel in SF I gave it an extra bump. The breakfast is meager at best...just hard-boiled eggs and toast. Our room was also extraordinarily loud. If you're room is a 15 or 16 ask for a new room, those face Lombard Street,...

Our first few nights in the USA were in Marina Inn and we found the room and hotel clean, the room a good size and in a great location for discovering the city. It's not in the centre of everything, but Fisherman's Wharf is walkable and buses are in easy reach to explore further afield. Although the breakfast was basic,...

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.
