I've stayed at many a Comfort Inn, so I was expecting the same as before: a quality room at a fair price. Our hotel room was ok, bed was comfy, but the bathroom was so, so tiny and outdated. I just wasn't impressed by the front desk staff here -- they seemed irritated by all of the New Year's Eve... More

Good option, near to Fisherman Wharff and Chestnut shops. 15 min from Downtown by taxicab. Also next to bus stops going Downtown. Enough good breakfast, friendly staff and nice rooms. Also good price compared to other hotels around.

We choose this hotel on price. Breakfast is included. They offer all kinds of room options. Pick the bayside, above floor five and get a great view of the marina district and the bridge. The rooms layout also varies with price. The location is great, at the corner of Lombard, 101 and van ness. It is an easy walk downtown... More

This is our second time staying here. We love how economical the hotel is, however, very clean!! We walked to the wharf and it was not bad at all, maybe a mile. If you'd like to take a taxi, it will cost only 6 bucks. We also wanted a late night bite sent to our room and the staff helped... More

I’ve had the privilege of staying here on four different occasions over past four years. The rooms are decorated of an older style but the views are worth a million dollars. The staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast is fulfilling. Give it a go, you will never know till you try.

Stayed here for one night. The room was clean and the beds (and pillows) were comfortable. We had a beautiful view of the Golden Gate Bridge. The hotel is located just a few blocks from Fisherman's Wharf, Ghiradelli Square and the famous part of Lombard Street. For the location, the nightly room cost was quite reasonable. There is underground parking,... More

This well located Hotel (you can get taxis at all times) delivers what the chain promises: Standard room sizes -but definitely they need a replacement of beds and furniture- with free internet and fairly LCD TV sets in all rooms.

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.
