Spent three nights in the Cow Hollow Motor Inn and enjoyed every one of them. Hotel is located on Lombard Street in the Cow Hollow neighborhood, a short walking distance to the Marina district, Union Street, Palace of Fine Arts and the Presidio. Many highly rated restaurants are nearby, and there's only a 5 minute walk to the bus stop... More

Recently spent three nights in San Francisco at the Cow Hollow Motor Inn. It is located on Lombard Street and is very conveniently located near transportation, restaurants, entertainment, and shopping. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable, and parking was convenient in their parking garage. I took one point off because they don't offer a... More

Great stay at Cow Hollow! We had a street view room with bay windows and free parking! It was close enough that, if you don't mind walking, we were able to walk to Ghiradelhi Square and the pier area. The near by neighborhoods are very interesting. Staff was very nice and loved the citrus shampoo!! The only draw back was... More

Happy with our stay. The room was clean & tidy. Beds were comfy. Our room was away from Lombard street so it was nice and quiet. Great wee shopping area around the corner with nice places to eat. Only thing to improve on was front desk friendliness. There was no warm welcome or thanks when we left. Although, overall we... More

You won't get disappointed. The pricing strategy of this hotel is very good, yet you find the room comfortable...just ask for 2nd or 3rd floor, back side for a quiet room. There are many restaurants in the neighborhood. Marina is within the walking distance.

As a person who doesn't like paying an exorbitant amount for hotels, the Cow Hollow Inn was just the right price when booking. Located near a number of restaurants which are open til late, and around the corner from the #30 bus which takes you to Fishermans Wharf and the centre of the city, I recommend Cow Hollow for any...

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.
