The Marina Motel
Founded by the son of a Calfornia 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, each room in this quaint Mediterranean-style motel has a private garage directly beneath the room.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. San Francisco's top attractions are located within walking distance or a short bus ride from the Marina Motel.The Marina Motel is still family-owned and operated today by the original owner's granddaughter. For the past 70 years the Marina Motel has provided a beautiful and friendly place to stay while visiting San Francisco.
