We stayed for 4 nights & picked the Marina Inn as a good location for exploring the local area as our daughter was moving in to a new college. We were a family of 4 from NZ. We felt very comfortable at the hotel as the staff at Reception and other service staff were so friendly (& genuine). The facilities... More

we stayed two nights in order to explore North of San Francisco before staying in the city centre. It's in a handy spot with quick road access to Napa Valley and SF. Not much to do around the hotel but it overlooks a beautiful marina and there's a good restaurant right next door. Nice rooms, very nice coffee available with... More

We stayed one night to go to a football game. We got a bay view room on the 2nd floor which was clean and basic. We shared one wall with another room and I don't know if the guy just had a really loud voice but the wall seemed paper thin. He was obviously in the company of someone else... More

We spent a weekend in San Francisco. This hotel is located outside of the city but is close to the highway so we do not put time to drive to SF. The hotel is very good and clean. Breakfast is okay. This is a hotel that I recommend for families as the price is reasonable.

Nice rooms, nice size, great marina view, very peaceful location. The breakfast buffet does need to improve, to include scrambled eggs, all you get is hard-boiled eggs with the shells on-what gives? Good pool, spa, exercise room; what more can I say?

The Marina Inn in San Leandro is a GREAT choice if travling out or into the Oakland Airport. The staff is excellent and the rooms are clean. My only worry is that it get so popular they start increasing the rates. Not the Hilton or Marriott but very comfortable and Family friendly.
