Our first time of going to San Fransico was wonderful. My husband picked this quaint little hotel and we absolutely loved it!!! Everyone was friendly and very helpful. We were close enough to Fisherman's Wharf that we could walk to it. We looked for a place that would put us close yet we would have quiet when we wanted it....

We've stayed at this hotel several times over the past few years and I even wrote a review in 2009 but things have changed and after our recent three night visit I doubt that we will return. Just a few things that I find unacceptable, even for a budget hotel: wash cloths were not replaced in room and had to...

We've just stayed for 2 nights in Marina Inn while we're at SF. The main problem is the parking, since Marina Inn doeasn't have a parking place or parking lot. Receptionist was really helpful to find a place for the car at the nearby Travelodge hotel for 10 bucks a day. Our room was quiet (looking to Octavia str.), and...

We weren't expecing the Ritz when we booked this hotel, just a clean room with clean bedding. How disappointed we were, the smell that met us as we made our way to the room was awful. There were 4 of us and we had booked 2 rooms, in both rooms we found hairs in the basin, and stains on the...

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...

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.
