We stayed here one night and were very pleasantly surprised. The room decor is very dated but it almost adds to the retro charm of the place. The room was very spacious and clean with a comfy bed so worked great for us. We stayed on 3rd floor and it wasn’t any more noisy than I would expect in any... More

We totally enjoyed our stay! The room was affordable, clean and comfortable. The people at the front desk were kind and helpful. We found the neighborhood to be safe with easy access to public transportation. We will definitely return!

Good location to catch Big Bus. Very clean and best was free parking. Not best neighborhood down Filmore, but did not feel threatened. Post Office half block away or you can send mail from front desk. A little noisy, but turned on fan and after about 11pm not much noise.

I stayed here revently because of the excellent location and free parking. Reading the many positive comments I decided to try out for the first time and was happily surprised with the room. The staff was very helpful and gave information about restaurants and activities in the area. I stayed in a Double bed room facing Fillmore street. Unfortunately, the... More

The location is very good, 1 block away from Chestnut avenue, filled with trendy bars and restaurants, but if you want to walk to SF's main attractions then not so good. Rooms are outdated but clean. No breakfast nor fridge/microwave. The other great pros are the free parking and free wifi.

Staff was friendly and helped us with planning our two day visit to San Francisco. Parking was free which was amazing! The room was quite clean, hotel was quiet, and awesome location near bars, restaurants, and shops. Highly recommend, affordable rate for an unaffordable city!!!

We chose this hotel based on its good reviews and price. Smart idea! Not fancy but a great base for our five day stay. Many good nearby restaurants, bus service outside door, quiet, clean, spacious rooms with friendly staff, easy in building parking. Mel's Diner is 2 minutes away for great breakfast and lunch choices. Chatagna Provençal restaurant takes you... More

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
