We enjoyed a great stay here at the Chelsea Motor Inn, its on Lombard Street, great location for commuting into the heart of San Francisco, as its in a nice district. 15/20 min walk from Frishermans Wharf, 5 min drive. Rooms were clean tidy and big. Free Parking, Free WIFI, sadly no breakfast facilities and none particularly near by.

When booking our stay we found the price to be great compared to other hotels in the area. They do charge a $50 booking fee which offsets the free parking. Why not just put that as your rate? We are not very picky and we know what to expect in SF. The room was clean and a little noisy as... More

The Chelsea Motor Inn is a very good hotel for the money. It is about half the cost of the Holiday Inn. Simple MUNI transportation from here to Fisherman's Wharf. The bed was very comfortable and we were not on the Lombard St side so it wasn't very noisy. Parking is FREE also.

The room was not ready when we arrived and we were told the maids were on break so we had to wait until exactly 3:00. On my first day an older man who works at the hotel just let himself into my locked room because the floor smelled like someone had been smoking. I felt this was very inappropriate and... More

My husband and I found this to be a pretty decent, reasonably priced hotel. It was not super glitzy, and some things were kind of old (the hall soda machine, the TV, the bathroom fixtures), but it was a very pleasant stay. Beds were comfortable, water warm, decent parking for a free lot (minus the large SUV that chose to... More

We loved this hotel! The rooms were big, clean & updated, as were the bathrooms. The staff was extremely helpful, gave a great recommendation for breakfast and if you mentioned that the hotel sent you, you got a discount on your meal. We did have some street noise from the bar across the street, but we had earplugs, so not... More
