I doubt I can add anything new to the other reviews. This is a great place to stay. Drive into the courtyard and you're in a different world. Your own private garage secures your car. A complete kitchen with all the basics. Bed and linens were clean and comfortable, good wifi connections, the Comcast TV service works very well. All the staff I dealt with were very helpful and positive. The motel is within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf, Ghirardelli Square, the Cable Cars. This is a great city to public transit. By a 3 day Muni pass for $22 and ride everywhere. Parking is expensive and scarce another big benefit of staying at the Marina Motel. I think that staying here made my visit to SF a better experience. It is what it is.

Our 36 guestrooms and three suites are uniquely decorated with warm, stylish touches to make you feel at home. Our quaint courtyard, surrounded by colorful cascading flowers and a cobblestone driveway, offers a relaxing place to chat with friends. Flower boxes overflowing with fragrant blossoms adorn the windows adding European cottage charm.
