Lodging

There are two luxury hotels, two youth hostels and four campgrounds in the park. Because Golden Gate is surrounded by residential and commercial areas, there are numerous other lodging possibilities close to the park, ranging from budget motels to 5-star hotels.

The Inn at the Presidio is located on the Main Post, the "heart of the Presidio." In addition to elegant room accommodations and an interior design that celebrates the Presidio's rich past with artisan details and Presidio memorabilia, the Inn also features an inviting front porch with rocking chairs, a dining room for breakfast and evening receptions, and an outdoor deck with a fire pit.

Cavallo Point Lodge is located in Fort Baker, Sausalito. Set in an idyllic location on the San Francisco Bay at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge, Cavallo Point offers unique historic and contemporary lodging options. This elegant and environmentally sustainable hotel includes conference facilities, restaurant, and spa.

Hostelling International offers affordable accommodations in spectacular locations in the park, including the Marin Headlands Hostel and the SF Fisherman's Wharf Hostel at Fort Mason.
