If you're looking for "bare bones" accommodations, this is the place for you. Hard beds, jackhammers blasting and rotten fruit on the counter. Eventually this place may be renovated to be something of a bargain but for right now, you can find better places for that kind of money. Keep looking.

I found this place on trip advisor. Since the reviews were largely positive I rented a unit for the end of December. I had to pay $1800.00 in advance. No credit cards are accepted (first clue to a bad experience - no recourse). On our arrival we had to take our luggage up a flight of stairs. We found out... More

I wanted to be in the hart of old town PV and the San Franciscan was the perfect place for me to stay. I did have a look at a few other Resorts in and around the area but choose to stay here because I liked where the building was positioned. The San Franciscan sits at the end of a... More

We have stayed at the San Franciscan every year for the past 6 years. Each year we look forward to our return. The owner lives there and stays on top of everything from a constantly running toilet to the pool chemicals, etc., etc. We love the feeling of security--one way in and one way out with cameras on the entry...

The San Franciscan is a great place for singles or couples to stay. I'm single and have stayed here and felt very safe. Great location only a block and a half to the beach, restaurants, nightlife, shopping and so much more. All of this is within walking distance. The apartments are clean and comfortable and if you need anything management... More

Excellent----Very Satisfied--The hotel is very quiet--so-the sleeping is very good. It has an excellent location in the heart of the Zona Romantica. The hotel is just a block and half - straight down the street- to the beach and beach restaurants. Only two blocks from several very good restaurants. Just a few blocks and over a bridge to the "old... More

Every time I stay at the San Franciscan I can't help but feel how lucky I am to have found this place. It is so close to everything (the beach,restaurants, clubs, markets, etc.) and yet still secluded, quiet and safe. I stay in a two bedroom/two bath unit with fantastic views of Banderas Bay and Los Arcos. (mornings on the... More

Life is great every time I return to the San Franciscan. Love the location. As a single woman I can get everywhere so safely and they take extra care to make sure I am comfortable. One block away from the most popular street for restaurants, cafes, lounges Olas Altas and Basillio Badillo. Love that the building is located near the... More

Have been staying in this hotel for many years and for the most part, people are very friendly. The owner takes care very promptly of certain problems that may arise i.e. burnt-out light bulb, leaky drain pipe. Location can t be beat - only 2 blocks from ocean. Very gay-friendly hotel. Salt water pool and very good size for swimming,... More

I have been at the San Franciscan for my second year. No matter if it is for 1 week, or 1 year, you will not be disappointed! The location is awesome, the building is very safe and secure, complete with a great salt water pool. The landlord bends over backwards for his tenants, all of your needs are met. I... More
