Old, run down, nice location. Slowest elevator ever, bad heating/ cooling. Very good continental breakfast. Rooms and bath very Motel 1. Run down sheets etc. Nice outdoor deck on 3rd floor. Not far from many destinations from San FranciscoMore

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.

Best thing is to call them. They had some Renos going on when we were there but they were minor and did not bother us at all.
