We have the pricing according to the fair market value at the time it was a holiday weekend the prices are higher, however we do understand that for you it was not acceptable. We are very sorry and we have rectified many things at this hotel and are making upgrades. Thank you.

We often stay at hostels in private rooms and found this room at an even better rate. I arrived late and the parking lot was...

We stayed in early May '14. We were pleasantly surprised w/this hotel. The staff is friendly, the rooms were very clean, the bed's firmness was perfect...not too soft nor too firm. It was quiet for us, we didn't hear any street noise nor noise of other guests. One drawback, no elevator. The location is great, right between Golden Gate bridge...

Stayed here with my son after a trip up Route 1. The interior tile walkway sounds so loud when late night guests arrive, it is surprising anyone sleeps.

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.
