Parking was plentiful, do have to pay, but a...

Use for bus driver stay - 1 person, 1 night. Refused to accept payment over the phone from school, refused to accept school credit card in person, charged $57+ just for 1 night bus parking - they could not have been more difficult to work with.

Dear Debbie I am sorry to hear that we came off as difficult, as credit card companies get more stricter in order to best protect the consumer, our business needs to protect itself as well from possible fraudulancy, and the rules must be the same for all. Payment over the phone does not constitute as a valid verification of authorized...

Relative to San Fransisco costs, this hotel is a good value in a good location. Parking for the car is reasonably priced.

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.
