Great hotel and a brilliant location right in the heart of the town and next to the ferry. The rooms were a good size and very clean. The decor is very well done and we loved our stay here a few months ago now. Having stayed in San Fran on a couple of occasions we were keen to stay in Sausalito and we did not regret it one minute, despite the town being very quiet at night which made the choice of food feel a bit limited. The Scottish owner was excellent despite being a Rangers fan and yes, my wife still has the $1 coin, thank you very much. Going next door for breakfast was good and this works well for all guests. Complimentary water and wifi were much appreciated and the team were very helpful in organising the parking over the road which is not any bother at all. Would love to go back and would certainly stay here again, a really great stay which was at the end of a 15 day break and therefore really finished things up well for us both....

We stayed at Hotel Sausalito the first week of October, 2012. I was delightfully surprised to see how quaint and pretty this hotel was. It met my full expectation and then some. You are steps away from the ferry to San Francisco and you are a block from boutiques, restaurants and coffee shops. This hotel resembles a B&B. We did have some bad luck when the fire alarm went off for two hours from 7:15 pm to about 9:15 pm. But, the owner was there apologizing, and was hands on attempting to disarm the alarm. The firemen and police couldn't fix the issue, either. After working on this for two hours, Billy stayed at the hotel all night, and was chipper working the front desk the next morning! I give him credit for making the best of the situation. He extended a refund for the night's stay. I would stay at this hotel with every visit to San Francisco. It certainly beats staying in the large city.

We were glad we stayed at the Sausalito Hotel. It was fun to be in the middle of the action and was quiet enough at night . The hotel is not fancy but we enjoyed the location. It reminded me of parts of coastal Italy. We caught the ferry to San Francisco for the day and because we are seniors it was a very good deal. We enjoyed the restaurants and had some very good ice cream. Our favourite restaurant was Pojo's (?) on the main drag, Weird but true; we could not find a magazine anywhere downtown.
Try the hotel. It is more affordable than the few others in town.

Room Tip: All rooms seem quite equal.

I stayed at the hotel this past weekend. It was amazing they have everything you need from complimentary water to wonderful service. You are steps away from the ferry to San Fran and all the sites in the town. They also give you breakfast voucher to the cafe next door which is amazing! It has great food or breakfast as well as lunch. Great job to the staff for the outstanding cleanliness to the service! I will definitely be back

We had 5 nights at this beautiful place. You literally come off the ferry from San Francisco and land on it's front door. The rooms are really clean, spacious and well decorated. The hotel offers free bottles of water and fruit which is lovely and you get a breakfast voucher for the cafe downstairs.
We found the canny Scotsman owner and his daughter a real treat. They were very obliging and made us feel really welcome.
I dare say you won't find a more convenient and value for money hotel in Sausalito.
Top marks

Arriving late in San Francisco from the East coast, the short drive across the bridge to Sausalito was perfect. And the Hotel Sausalito was just as perfect! Our room was small but nicely decorated, spotless and very cozy. The friendly front desk person gave us good suggestions and directions for an evening snack. And what a treat to wake up and look out over the Bay! We had nice coffee and pastries from the excellent coffee shop next door (a voucher comes with the room). After a nice morning chat with the very congenial, imported from Scotland, owner, we had a great walk along the waterfront before check out. We decided that when we return to SF, this is the place to stay and use the 'commuter' ferry outside the door for visiting the city.

Wonderful boutique hotel. Was concerned at first that it might be noisy due to proximity to parking lot, ferry and main street. I couldn't have been more wrong. The hotel was very quiet and charming. Reminded us so much of our trip to Europe. We walked around downtown before walking to The Spinnaker restaurant for dinner. The views across the Bay make it better (and far less expensive) than staying in SF. Highly recommended! Also, you receive a coupon for free coffee and pastry at Tutti's right next door. The coupon can be applied toward a full breakfast, if your prefer.
