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

We first found this hotel through "Hotwire.com" but stayed there a second time on our return to San Francisco, and would do so again. The place is clean, and decently equipped. But it is ageing. You can see wear on the furniture, a bit, and the elevator broke down on our first visit (staff carried our bags down the stairs... More

I think it's interesting that people complain about the street noise-why didn't you check this out and read reviews before you decided to stay here??? There is some street noise on Lombard but this is a major city-there is going to be traffic. The noise didn't bother me at all and my room faced Lombard St. I stayed here last... More

Stayed here because of location and price. I emailed before arrival to insure I got a quiet room. Was surprised on my arrival to learn they don't read their emails (despite an email address on their website) and that I had a 2nd floor room on noisy Lombard St. The desk agent was not interested in finding me a better...
