The rooms are huge compared to the rooms downtown. I stayed at 4 different Hotels in San Francisco and this place by far was the best I stayed at. In a very nice location. The Pizza place across the street has some great food. Try the Chicken Pesto sandwich, the Pesto is amazing. the night life in the area is...

First, we had not enjoyed staying south of Market, nor around Fishermen's Wharf, so this time, tried the Marina District, which was wonderful for us. A major draw was that the price, which was less than two hundred dollars/night, included parking. The room was spacious, beds wonderfully comfortable, A/C worked, decor was fine, and everything was super clean - the...

I like this place because it's reasonable (for SF), in a great neighborhood, clean and they provide free parking. Walking distance to many places, catch a bus out front for thr Golden Gate Bridge, and less than $10 Uber from most everywhere you want to go. Plenty of restaurants on nearby Union St. And Chestnut st.

I stayed in this hotel for a few nights this June. I got a renovated room, facing away from the streets, as requested. The room is nice and clean. The hotel is situated in a safe neighbourhood with many restaurants and shops. There were ample parking lots. Security was tight too - we have to use our card key every...

Since we planned to visit all of the areas of downtown San Francisco, we looked for a clean, moderate-priced hotel with complimentary parking for our rental vehicle. Cow Hollow Motor Inn met our needs perfectly. We drove into the hotel garage off Lombard Street and checked in at the office. Since my husband is a light sleeper, we had requested...

We selected this hotel for its free parking and central location. Many great restaurants within walking distance. Also many tourist attractions close enough to walk to. We walked to fisherman's wharf,just over a mile. Our room was quiet with a view of the bridge. Always ask for a room off Lombard as it will be quieter.

The evening we arrived, Stephan checked us in, he was very nice and efficient all with a smile and, voila, we had the nice quiet room as requested. The room was interior, spacious, clean with a very comfortable bed. We had a big palm tree as our view. Everything we like to do is within walking distance at least for...

We selected it because state court personnel frequently stay there. Clean and comfortable. Single room size larger than in comparable facilities. Can open the windows to receive natural air -- and, of course -- noise from Lombard St from traffic. Didn't bother use. No free breakfast, but many places for breakfast are nearby. Good size table work space. Desk chair...

This was our first trip to San Francisco and we were delighted we chose this hotel. Large, very comfortable and clean rooms and excellent location on Lombard Street. Public transport to Fisherman's Wharf is a few minutes walk away. Located in a very nice area close to restaurants, cafés, bars, shops etc. Check-in and Housekeeping staff very friendly.

This was our first visit to San Francisco, and we were lucky enough to stumble across the Cow Hollow Motor Inn. It is in a great location, with wonderful restaurants and shopping nearby, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the rooms were comfortable and quiet. And there is ample free parking! An excellent value!

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.
