Founded by the son of a California Gold Rush miner, the Marina Motel was built to celebrate the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge in the late 1930's. Designed as one of San Francisco's first "motor-hotels" for the dawning of the automobile age, the Marina Motel is still family-owned and operated today by the original owner's granddaughters. For the past 73 years, the Marina Motel has provided a beautiful and friendly place to stay while visiting San Francisco. Both leisure and business travelers will enjoy beautifully-appointed, Mediterranean-style guestrooms or suites with fully-equipped kitchens, friendly service, and such complimentary amenities as Wi-Fi and parking. Our quaint courtyard is surrounded by colorful cascading flowers and a cobblestone driveway while flower boxes overflowing with fragrant blossoms adorn the windows, adding European cottage charm. A convenient location provides close proximity to shops, restaurants, and a myriad of must-see attractions, from Fisherman's Wharf to the Golden Gate Bridge. What's more, the Marina Motel is dog-friendly.
The Marina Motel's inviting guestrooms offer a cozy place to unwind after an action-packed day exploring San Francisco. Each guestroom features convenient amenities like free wireless Internet access, premium television channels, a refrigerator plus complimentary in room coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Half of our guestrooms include fully equipped kitchens for stays of five nights or more. Our 36 guestrooms and three suites are uniquely decorated with warm, stylish touches to make you feel at home.
Guests at the Marina Motel enjoy the rare San Francisco convenience of free garage parking. Each guestroom is assigned a private garage plus four outdoor spaces for larger vehicles. Due to our limited size we cannot accept vehicles over 7 feet tall, trailers or U-Hauls.
Enjoy a central location near San Francisco's top attractions. Walk around the corner to chic boutiques and world class restaurants on Chestnut or Union Street, ride a cable car at Fisherman's Wharf, visit Golden Gate Park's de Young Museum, or bicycle across the Golden Gate Bridge into Sausalito and take the ferry back.
