We had and absolutely delightful stay except for one thing. The good things include: unbelievable view, impeccable service, spectacular room, wonderful wine/cheese and breakfast and a great location. The one problem that caused me to lower my rating from a 5 to a 3 was that my car was splattered with garden debris and covered with water spots while in...

Found this hotel using google earth because I wanted a certain view across the bay, and there are frankly almost no hotels with this view. The location couldn't be better - literally adjoining the ferry terminal. Hotel is gorgeous and rooms are wonderful. Especially enjoyed the lovely wine and cheese in the pretty drawing room in the afternoons, and the...

As East Coast visitors, we picked Inn Above Tide based on the excellent reviews. Our opinion? We agree--it's fabulous. This was out best hotel stay in 40 years of marriage, which the hotel marked with a welcome split of champagne, a rose and a card. Yes, we spent well beyond our means for the Skyline Suite, but have not an...

I stayed in this hotel back in 2005 and it really was one of the most special places I have stayed anywhere in the world. I still tell everyone about it - Sausalito is an amazing spot and this unassuming hotel is just a gem. Stunning views, amazing rooms, gorgeous bathrooms, fab staff, good food. It just gets everything right....

We pulled off at the Inn Above Tide, as we were taking a road trip during our honeymoon. We loved it so much, we stayed two nights. ( We had been staying wherever we happened to be.) The room, continental breakfast, wine reception, and service are exceptional! If seeing the ferry coming in to dock annoys you, it may be...

We had a wonderful stay at Inn Above Tide. We booked a room facing the bay, with a fireplace. We were able to see seals swimming just a few feet away from us, and had panoramic views of the entire Bay Area. The breakfast was good and the staff was very friendly, accommodating and helpful. We would definitely stay here...

This was a trip for my 50th birthday and we wanted it to be special. And it exceeded every expectation. The Inn Above Tide is exactly as advertised. It is relaxing, beautiful, and full of charm. The staff went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The wine and cheese reception is fantastic, as well as...

This was one of the most beautiful places we stayed in along our 10 day trip. The team was superb, the entire team were responsive to all our needs. Our room (all rooms face the bay) faced the bay and sites were breathtaking. The room was perfect, the bathroom couldn't be better and the amenities unsurpassed. I would live there...

Small intimate property right on the water, private, large rooms, deck, extremely quiet. Sitting area, 2 baths, 2 flat screens, jacuzzi tub inside looking out on the bay. Great wine/cheese in the afternoon and lovely breakfast. Private gated property. A must for a special occasion to relax and get away for a quiet relaxing stay. Just step out and enjoy...
