“Perfect for a Romantic Get-a-Way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013 via mobile

My husband and I stayed at The Inn Above Tide on a weekend get-a-way for just the two of us. We are recent Empty Nesters and wanted to splurge for a weekend. The Inn Above Tide was a luxurious experience that made us feel like we were their most important clientele. The views over the water are spectacular and we even saw Sea Lions swimming 20 yards off our balcony. We will be back and hope to upgrade to one of the fireplace rooms next time.

Stayed December 2013, travelled as a couple

We had a wonderful time here. The room was great..seagulls and foghorns! Good attention to detail and the breakfast was wonderful. Service was wonderful and prompt. Would definitely stay there again. The area is very quiet as well. And you are in walking distance to the ferry landing.

We had a room right over the water and listened to sea gulls and water. It was delightful. Continental breakfast is delicious as is the wine and cheese happy hour, gratis of course! Details were immaculate and the Bulgaria toiletries a real plus.

Great location! This wonderful hotel was recommended to us; and it was worth it! You will not be disappointed. Great view from the balcony. Quick ferry ride to San Francisco. The town is quaint, full of artsy shops and cool restaurants.

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at this lovely hotel. We introduced it to friends who were travelling with us. There comment was " What super find"
What I like about this hotel is that you can park and forget your car.
A few yards from the hotel is the ferry landing, you can hop on a ferry and it takes you to pier 41 San Francisco. No need to drive and worry about parking.
Every bedroom has a view of the Bay and a balcony. It is so nice just to sit and watch all the activities going back and forth in the bay..

Happy hour was gratis with amples of cheese and biscuits, followed by some nice wine, compliments of the hotel. Breakfast was buffet type but very good.

Staff were so accomodating, nothing was too much trouble.

The rooms very very compact, long and narrow but more than adequate. Full marks to everyone, always on my stopping off list.

Excellent service, beautiful rooms, very romantic and unbeatable views, As an added bonus they have an amazing happy hour spread with local wine and cheese, and breakfast is delivered to your door (and included in the price!). We stayed in Room 303 on our wedding night and we couldn't have been more impressed. They had champagne and chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us, along with a card congratulating us. Truly a gem of a hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms 203 and 303 are brand new suites. They shouldn't be missed.

Inn Above Tide is probably my favorite getaway spot of all time! One who loves being situated on the water, will absolutely adore this location. My husband and I call it "our room with a view" as we love to nestle in and watch the ferries landing by our window and then watch their departure back to San Francisco. The views of Angel Island, Tiburon, Belvedere, and back to the San Francisco skyline are breathtaking. Two steps out the front door the shopping and dining are superb, not to mention perfect walking paths along the waterfront, more opportunities to drink in the view. The rooms are clean, modern, and have an Asian influence which also is my favorite. When we arrive here we always feel like we have landed at a second home or vacation condo. Doesn't feel like a hotel. Very romantic spot. We return there annually for my birthday or our anniversay! That's how much we love it.

Room Tip: We prefer the third floor rooms without the deck as you can see the view from the room rather than h...
