This is a boutique hotel in the center of town with partial views of the water. It was my first stay here and I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel has been tastefully redecorated in a style which suits its quaint facade, but with modern amenities. My bathroom was lovely, with a spacious shower in a glass partition that didn't require...

Old world charm in the heart of Sausalito. comfortable, clean, friendly staff! Across the street from the ferry terminal so trips to San Francisco and around the bay are quick and easy! Very Reasonable!

Our affection for this hotel grew somewhat from our first not-so-positive impressions. The location is brilliant - perfect for access to lovely Sausalito and a very short walk to the ferry into San Francisco. The staff are very friendly and helpful, too, the beds are really comfortable, and the hotel towels put some luxury hotels to shame! The hotel is...

Hi WH0A, Thank you for your review! I'm very glad you enjoyed your stay. Most of our beds are brand new - less than 6 months old. We pride ourselves on using the best quality of bedding and towels, so I'm very happy you enjoyed them. We are a historic building, so we are slightly limited on any major renovations....

Great location. The price was well within the range of what we had been spending in San Francisco. The setting is very quaint. We were prepared for the fact that the view was limited to that of Sausalito's main street. We were unable to get the heater to work on the one night that we needed it. We would stay...

Wonderful old-style hotel right very close to ferry stop. But, don't fret, the comings and goings of the ferry and its passengers don't interfere with your privacy one bit. Also, centrally located enough to walk to some of Sausalito's most renowned restaurants and shopping. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Great hotel with great staff. Owner Gail was the best. We were upgraded twice to #203 on the very corner with a great view and comfy king bed. Catch the ferry right next door and great shops & restaurants all around. Nice and quiet street after hours. We can't wait to go back!

We've visited Sausalito every year at Christmastime for nine years. We've always stayed at Hotel Sausalito and always had a lovely time? The location is perfect, the room is warm, quiet, safe, and comfortable. I encourage everyone planning a trip to this area to stay here. It serves as a great base for daily explorations.
