    This isn't the Ritz, but it isn't squalor either! I was honestly pleasantly surprised at the room's condition and amenities. You could tell it had been recently renovated and looks better on the inside than the outside. If you want to check-in early (before 3PM),...More

    Decent rooms, we had one with two queen size beds. It's like any motel really. I love the location and district. But don't bet on the breakfast, go out and eat a real breakfast. Plus for parking and helpful staff.More

    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.
