I disagree with a lot of these reviews, I stayed alone for three nights and loved my time here ... one road up from the painfully cool Chestnut Street with its bars, restaurants and shops and a short walk down to the water's edge with great Golden Gate views. Easy to hire a bike nearby and cycle the Bridge too....

The rooms were clean ,but a toothbrush was found near the bed in one room. Beds were comfortable and staff friendly enough. The biggest gripe was no kettle or coffee/ tea making facilities in the room. Not something I needed from stepping of the plane after an 11 hour flight ! And breakfast,don't bother, one round table for everyone to...

check in staff was helpful, courteous, and accommodating. Told us up front that cable/internet wasn't working and gave us a discount. Even though the cable never ended up working for the 2 nights we stayed here, we were never in the room so this did not bother us. Just FYI for future travelers here: spotty cable/internet connection. Hotel is also...

Let's face it this is a motel from a bygone era. In Gualala it's probably the cheapest rate you're going to find. Head further north if you want something cheaper. The motel is not the most quiet or cleanest place but the linens were clean and the bed and pillows were comfortable. The room was small but had a small...

I have been staying at the Surf Motel, every year, for at least 10 years or so and it was always just fine for the price of $100.00-110.00 a night.

This place needs to be closed down, we checked in and then had to leave within an hour as the Smell alone made us feel sick. We walked in to the room to find marks on the bedding, hairs and dirt everywhere, Never experienced anything like it before, you would come out of the shower dirtier than you went in....

I don't mind staying in cheap motels - If I'm paying next to nothing. This was the worst motel for the price I have EVER stayed in. Read all the reviews and you will see why.

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.
