There is no lodging available on Alcatraz Island. Lodging is available in the City of San Francisco, and the surrounding Bay Area. The ferry terminal is located near the Fisherman's Wharf area and is easily accessed from most hotels in the city using public transportation (visit the MUNI "New Riders" website to plan your route to Pier 33 on The Embarcadero). For area lodging information visit the Only in San Francisco Official Visitors Site.
