This was our second stay at the Marina Inn and again - we were happy to stay there. The Marina Inn is a well priced, nice little hotel in the Marina District. You can easily get to downtown, the piers and other nice places. There are a lot of restaurants and bars just a short walk away. The front desk...

I must give the Marina Inn 5 stars because to find a clean, safe, AFFORDABLE place like this in SFO was a Godsend. The Marina Inn was offered as part of a package I booked on Priceline that included airfare from L.A. with 3 nights for only $275!!. Unbelievable. I checked the reviews on Trip Advisor and Yelp and was...

You really can walk to almost all SF attractions from this place, which makes it so attractive. The rooms are a little bit overpriced given the noisy street outside and the condition of the rooms. There is NO PARKING space at all in this aerea, so you better go to some other place if you arrive by car. A public...

The room was very basic and quite expensive considering the cost was 70 odd $. There is no view from the window even though the booking said "bay window". All I saw from my room was another room of the hotel. There is no AC so it gets warm. Washroom is very small too. Breakfast is exteremely basic and tiny...

This hotel may be attractive because of its location and relatively cheap rates. The room I was given was large, with a nice bathroom. But it gets hot during the day, and the fan was not doing much of a difference either. The TV is inside the wardrobe. The reception is very simple, with not so friendly receptionists. There is...

I stayed at the Marina Inn in the first week of June 2010 and found it to be very pleasant. I stayed in deluxe room. My room was always clean and amenities are more than adequate. It takes about 15 minutes to walk to fisherman’s wharf area from the hotel (I am a quick walker so others may take a...

Located at Lombard Street, Marina Inn is at a good location, one might say! However to get to the main attractions like Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39 and Union Square, it is a long long walk, so you will probably need to take a cab if you wanna get there real quick. The rooms are pretty comfortable (not too big), though...

I found this hotel to be very good if you are traveling on a budget, this is a very charming old building which I love. I can't say enough about the staff at the front desk, they were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean, comfortable, the sink in our room needed replacing, but overall I found it to...

Stayed here for four nights at the end of May and thought it was a great value. Was very clean and the front desk personal were very polite and helpful. The free continental breakfast was really good, the bed was comfortable, and my room was very clean and quite. Could not hear any other guests though the walls.

I'm sure I'm not alone in valuing Tripadvisor when planning my trip. I literrally read every review trying to find a hotel in San Francisco and struggled to work out the best location to stay. Tripadvisor seemed to say Union Sq was 'the heart' of San Fran but I found it just full of shops and I wasn't really in...

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.
