From booking to checkout this was an amazing stay! The Inn is situated right on the water overlooking the bay. The views are sublime...the Golden Gate, Alcatraz, San Francisco all right in front of you! The beds are extremely comfortable and the pillows...even better. The staff can't do enough for you, they are so helpful with trip suggestions, directions, dinner...

We booked a King Premium Room as it has a walk in shower unlike most of the other rooms which have a shower over the bath, which I find difficult. As we stayed in winter we didn't miss not having a balcony. We had a wonderful view from our room on the 3rd floor and appreciated being invited to turn...

My husband and I stayed at the Inn Above Tide Dec. 28-Dec. 31. On previous visits to Sausalito, we had stayed at the Hotel Sausalito (perfectly nice), but this is our new favorite. We stayed in a King Deluxe room without a fireplace on the first floor. We found that the room was spacious, especially the bathroom. Other reviewers have...

Charming, convenient, very clean, organized, perfect location. Walkable to lots of shops and restaurants. Great water views. Delightful continental breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese. Staff helpful. We considered the price reasonable for the accommodations, extras and location.

Lovely boutique accommodation, friendly staff with quality production in room. View is spectacular and relaxing, a fireplace is a nice feature especially in January, inclusive internet is rock solid and no penny pinching charges unlike other stays in San Fran.

We too stayed here long ago, when the inn first opened. Obviously one expects prices to increase. But on December 13-15, there were few guests. Whereas some establishments practice dynamic pricing (one pays according to how busy a place is likely to be), our deluxe king was nevertheless over $400 per night--midweek. Certainly the views seem to be the major...

This was our third stay, the highlight is the view back to San Francisco, especially at nightfall when you can sit on your deck and watch the lights come on. But the inn is very good even without the view, attentive service, great breakfast and "happy hour" food and wine. The rooms are not overly large but because of the...

My wife and if stayed here just one night as part of an 11 night road trip down the Oregon and Northern California coast. The Inn is very nice with excellent views of San Francisco and the bay. While the inn was fairly expensive it was well worth every penny. Our room was modern and elegant with a fireplace and...

This is a really special Hotel. Would definitely return with family and was a shame they were not with me to enjoy it on this trip. I absolutely loved it's position over the San Francisco bay, literally over it. View from balcony = the bay bridge, San Francisco skyline and view over to Berkeley. Beautiful sunrise. Seals popping their heads...

Loved my stay here. I'm a frequent traveler, and not many places "wow" me anymore. But this property definitely did. Very charming with amazing views from our bed no less. The balcony is over the water and was very private. We could see the view from our bed. Very well appointed with excellent service. I stayed her once before back...
