I am writing this on the experience of one night. Friendly staff, and very helpful. Clean, comfortable and convenient to the Oakland airport. Restaurants nearby, nice view of the marina. They provide a shuttle service. We live about three hours from Oakland, so it is handy to spend the night before a morning flight in the area -- and we... More

We've never stayed in this area. And staying in San Francisco was out of our budget. I found a good price at this place online. Wow. Were we pleasantly surprised! The marina area is beautiful. Room and staff were great. Even though the airport is close by, it's not super noisy. In fact, we went for a beautiful morning walk... More

This hotel was very handy to Oakland airport and offered a free shuttle and a place to leave our car for a few days while we were gone. The staff was exceptionally kind and helpful which made us feel welcome. I would visit this hotel again!

This hotel has lovely marina views from the 2nd floor balcony rooms and an adjacent walking path with loaner bikes to ride to Marina Bay park. Two restaurants within walking distance. Horatios provides evening room service, 5-9. You won't need to go out for breakfast as the complimentary Deluxe continental breakfast is excellent. Arrive in time for fresh cookies and... More

A very welcoming hotel, we stayed twice last month. Loved the location, near to San Francisco but far away from the hustle and bustle to be peaceful. Free shuttle from hotel and then a short BART ride. We borrowed the free bikes to cycle along the Bay via Marina park which is next door to the hotel. Enjoyed the outdoor... More

This was our last night of a 2 week trip to NV and CA. The room was of an adequate size with a queen bed. It was clean and comfortable. New shower and wonderfully thick towels.

Stayed 3 nights. Clean and comfortable room. Good views of the marina from the room balcony. Excellent front desk staff. Easy access to downtown San Francisco by transit train from nearby station (about a 20 mins journey). Free shuttle service provided by the hotel to & from station. Walking distance to nearby restaurants.

Nothing fancy, but a solid stay. Location is great! Right on the water at the SL Marina, with nice views and close to great walking trails. Only a couple of restaurants close by, but you could make do for a day or two without a car. Close to the Oakland airport, but a world away. Pleasant, calm and quiet. Definitely... More
