Other Lodging Options

In addition to these hotels in Sausalito, CA, you can also rent your own apartment. This might seem a little risky, but it's one of my favorite lodging options when I travel.

By using TripAdvisor, you minimize your risk. Their listings include up-to-date reviews of dozens of apartments in the area. To quickly find the right option for you, narrow your search by selecting your price range, desired number of bedrooms and bathrooms, number of people you are traveling with, and the amenities that are most important to you.

If you do stay in Sausalito, make sure you find something close to downtown so you can get around easily. The heart of the action is on Bridgeway right along the San Francisco Bay.

If you plan on heading into and out of San Francisco frequently, you can either take the #10 Golden Gate bus or one of the San Francisco ferries.
