very accomodating staff. we asked to check in 2 hours early, and they said it ordinarily would not be a problem, However, the carpets were cleaned that day and they couldn't let us. They invited us to park the car, which we did, and then got lunch. One of the trip advisor room tips I read was to get a... More

After much research we decided on the Chelsea Motor Inn. Yes, the free parking was one of the attractions but so was the location. It is a good 30-45 min walk to Fishermans Wharf but there are plenty of bars/cafes/restaurants just outside the hotel doors. We were told by the staff that a room at the front of the property...

Stayed for a few nights here, if you are going take ear plugs, the windows are single glazed and slide to open, there is little filling between the 2 panes and a lot of noise enters the room. The motel is on a crossroads of two busy streets with lots of traffic noise. The bar across the road also was... More

We always love to be able to walk right out the door to explore a city. Chelsea Motor Inn is right in the Cow Hallow area which we love to walk, shop and eat. The rooms are simple and clean. The front desk is friendly and helpful. The best part is it's location and free parking. You cannot beat this... More

The check in staff were very helpful and professional. The cleaning crew are hard working friendly ladies. The onsite parking was great. The room on 3rd floor facing Lombard was clean, spacious, convenient to restaurants. The room furniture was not in good condition but clean. The bed comfortable and pillows and blanket and sheets very nice. Others complain about the... More

My first time in San Francisco. My friend had stayed here before and recommended it. Glad she came along. She was a great guide. Great location. Very clean. Very comfortable beds. The only thing I wish they would have had was updated TV's. The front desk people were very welcoming and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Wife chose Chelsea for a few main reasons. The price of course, which was extremely reasonable considering all things. Second, it was right next to a stop for the Big Bus Tours, which meant we could step right out of the hotel, and get on the Tour. Also get back to the hotel. Thirdly, they are a motor inn and...

Super clean. Convenient location, walking distance to restaurants, drugstore, shops. Free parking (a godsend in this busy neighborhood)! The rooms have exactly what you need, with no frills. Generously sized organic soap, shampoo, conditioner. Ice bucket, coffeemaker with supplies, hair dryer. TV (CRT, not flat screen) with Comcast cable, about 200 stations, no premium channels. Furniture is solid but old.... More

We stayed at the Chelsea Inn for 2 nights this past weekend because it was one of the hotels where rooms had been blocked for a wedding we were attending. The location in the Marina District was excellent, with lots of restaurants & shops within walking distance. Since it was the first hotel on the list of hotels with blocked... More

Only drawn to this hotel for the free parking so I was pleasantly surprised when the room turned out better than expected! Don't get me wrong though it's not the Ritz, however it was clean with a very nice bath / shower room, beds were fairly comfortable, the rooms not too noisy unless someone throttled an Harley D on the...
