It is a hotel with few rooms, therefore, quiet, although the rooms facing the Lombard Street can be a bit noisy but nothing that prevents sleep, ...refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, spacious bathroom, bed a bit hard but bearable and good pillows. Cleanliness as you would expect in this type of establishment... An hotel to take a shower and sleep after...

As a family of six we really had trouble finding somewhere reasonably central that could fit us all and wasn't riduculously priced. We ended up with two rooms and a total of 3 beds. For 3 nights we paid over $900 There was one parking space left when we got there and we left our car there 3 days. Initial...

Upon arriving at the Francisco Bay Inn, we were treated with the utmost respect and generosity. The office staff was incredibly accommodating, extending discounted rates that far exceeded our expectations. Not only did we experience such extraordinary kindness with the booking, but we were also greeted with the warmest hospitality, leaving the office with maps for each of San Francisco's...

The location near on Lombard near Van Ness was convenient. The rooms were basic and, on a Saturday night, received a lot of noise from the street. Fortunately, ear plugs were provided, although only one pair. Breakfast consisted of donuts, a few croissants, and instant coffee. We opted instead for the GOLO Cafe, a little hole in the wall with...

We were over charged for 1 additional night and by booking.com. the room smelled dirty, they shower door wouldn't open or close correctly. Once we asked about getting anything rectified, they told me nothing they could do. They lost me as customer for sure!

Room was very clean and a great location; we could walk to a lot of places! The bed and pillows, however, were not very comfortable. Overall, decent place to stay. It was also nice to have a lot to park our car!

This hotel is located a block from Lombard and Van Ness, which is convenient to everywhere, and the hotel has free parking. The rooms are large and clean, with lots of horizontal places to put your things: a desk, a bureau, two nightstands, and two chairs. The bathroom is huge and nice and clean. The front desk folks were incredibly...

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.
