We booked this place for two nights during a US west coast road trip we did in October 2014 and left after one night primarily because of the high noise levels at night that my girlfriend could not cope with. Roberts At The Beach is located in the south-western Sunset District of San Francisco, about two miles to the SFSU... More

We were searching for a cheap hotel, only to sleep and shower in for a short (2 nights) trip to San Francisco and therefore have chosen Roberts. We thought it might be pretty convenient as there are free parking slots and the muni is close by and it can't be that bad if booking.com is rating it with 5+. So... More

Very noisy neighbors or gangs on the carpark. Noise coming through this hotel quite easily so i was awake most of the night due... More

When we drove in we thought OH MY. Just a awful run down hotel with no upkeep at all in years. We asked to see the room to make sure it was somewhat clean and had no bed bugs and as we lifted up the mattress the lady that runs it came screaming at us to come down and pay... More

thought it wouldnt be too bad since not spending much time in the room. But it was the worst room I ever stayed in. Dirty floor walls bathroom.. It was nice to be close to the ocean though. We were able to hear waves..would not stay again.

The main advantage of Roberts is its location. It’s not only right off the beach, but excellent transportation options with access to all parts of the city. The end of a street car line, which goes all the way to the ferry building, is right behind the motel. A bus stops in front. from the motel, one can drive right... More

For the solo type who wants to save a few bucks (maybe 20-30 $ from other nearby hotels in this location) and just passing through...or need to spend some time alone to wander the beach during the day, this is the place. I paid $100 tax incl. for a shabby room. At first a little turned off after looking at... More
