Our room was over the water, with a view looking out across the bay to San Francisco. Next to the ferry landing. Fun to watch the ferries come and go back to the city. Walk out your door and you are in the middle of downtown Sausalito. We had the continental breakfast the hotel served on a tray on our...

This was our splurge night during our week long trip to San Francisco. We were going to do so much running around that I wanted to stay somewhere one night to relax and have some peace and quiet. I was looking for a place with great views of the water and you just can't beat the balconies at The Inn...

We stayed here for my husbands birthday trip and would stay again if we are in the area. The service is top notch and while it was raining for our stay the views were still amazing! The staff Made us a fire in the fireplace in our room and all the amenities you could want are included.

Every couple should spend a few nights in Sausalito, and The Inn Above Tide is by far the best base for your visit. Although centrally located for an easy walk to restaurants, shops, and the ferry, the hotel is quiet day and night. Sausalito tourists apparently don't generate as many decibels as Key West tourists. Views of the City and...

Sausalito is one of my favorite places on planet Earth, and The Inn Above Tide is the absolute best place to stay while visiting. The waterfront views were phenomenal, and the rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated. Wine and cheese served daily. Great service: helpful, friendly staff who will attend to your needs with a smile on their faces. Substantial...

This place is amazing. The setting, the staff, the views, the rooms are all above reproach. We came here to celebrate our 46th anniversary and we couldn't have chosen a better place. The rooms are luxuriant, it was within walking distance of several good restaurants. We would definitely return and book a longer stay...definitely worth the money.

When we turned the corner and saw The Inn Above Tide--I knew that we had found a fabulous spot. The views from these hotel rooms are spectacular. The hotel is in a great location right off the main street in Sausalito and right at the ferry docks. This would be a fantastic romantic hotel for any occasion. Before I wrote...
