Booked this hotel for it's location on Lombard st and from reviews on Trip Advisor. We arrived a little early but were allowed to book into our rooms straightaway. The room was a good size, clean but was out dated. This doesn't really worry me but there were other issues. There was no safe in the room, I reported this... More

Edward B, General Manager at Chelsea Motor Inn, responded to this review

Very sorry that your complaint was not dealt with in a more judicious manner. I will check into rooms that have safes out of order and try to rectify the problem ASAP. Regarding medication, we have fridges available and one should have been supplied, if requested for medication. Please accept our sincerest apology. More

We stayed for two nights. Great location with easy access to transit. The hop on hop off tour stops right by, which we didn't know but might consider next time. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance as well as a grocery store and wine store. The rooms was comfortable and clean. We were in an outside unit on the Lombard... More

Stayed for 3 nights. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The only problems we encountered was the noise from Lombard Street at the front of the hotel as our room looked directly out onto this. I would definitely recommend taking ear plugs. The beds were also a bit wobbly and soft for my liking. There are plenty of places to... More

The rooms are spacious, clean, the beds are comfortable, the staff are friendly and helpful. It is a simple hotel, but adequate and if you don't use a lot of hotel services, the price cannot be beat. The location has a lot of restaurants and cafes in walking distance and a pharmacy a few blocks down. Very accessible by bus... More

We stayed at The Chelsea in 2013 and have just rebooked there for our next trip. Yes it's a bit dated but still retains its charm. The rooms are spotless and the beds a comfy with good quality linen. Our room had a view of the Golden Gate Bridge. There are some great eateries close by and you can walk... More

Stayed a total of three nights during our recent time in CA. parking provision is excellent. Location also perfect for several buses and trolley buses to downtown. Walkable to views of the Golden Gate Bridge and to several really good restaurants and Mel's Diner nearby. Our stay was cut short to three days from the original four at the last... More

We are still staying here actually, we were booked to stay 3 nights but unfortunately our flight was cancelled and we left a day late so we have only stayed two. We arrived early Wednesday morning (1am) and the lovely gentleman on reception helped our family out and ensured we got to our room and were comfortable. We have 2... More

On a recent holiday, touring the States. We chose the Chelsea Motor Inn for a 2 night stay. Parking in SF is a must! This place provides parking. Very basic. But very clean and comfortable. Around the Inn are a few eating places and bars. A short taxi ride to Fisherman's Wharf. Alcatraz is a must visit. Pre book tickets... More

OK hotel. A litlle worn but nice and clean. Free parking is a big plus. Wifi is only working sporadic. Close to shopping and good restaurants. Tour bus "Hop on hopoff" is stopping just across the street. Please notice that there is quite a lot of traffic noise from Lombard Street. No restaurants or bars at the hotel, but no... More

We spent 3 nights here and found the staff at reception to be very helpful about local attractions/restaurant and good local bars etc. The rooms were clean although the rooms do need updating. A good priced motel with FREE PARKING!! Worth a visit if the price is right
