Fun hotel. Kids LOVED it and used the heated outdoor pool even on foggy 50-degree mornings! They allowed us to cram a rollaway into the family suite so that we could fit our three kids, which -- as any traveling family of 5 knows -- is a big plus. Even without the rollaway, the family suite was small and the... More

Wonderful motel, nice neighborhood great restaurant and boutique style shoppes 2-3 blocks away. Best breakfast, "home plate" about 15 minute walk, which is a must! 30 minute or so walk to Pier 39. We had a nice room, very comfortable bed, lots of pillows. Clean and nice! They were really great about parking. Some minor issues; very small shower built... More

Nice little place right in the heart of the Marina/cow Hollow district. Nothing fancy but clean with bright colors and a retro feel without feeling old or tacky. Great location within walking distance of a lot of shopping and restaurants. Pretty good hike to the wharf so unless you really like to walk, jump on the 30 (muni) to get... More

Stayed one night in a Junior Suite - the rate was about $250 per night. The main reason we chose this place was that it was advertised in several sources as one of the most family friendly hotels in SF. Well none of us - including kids - got that impressions. Bright colors and toys are not enough to make... More

I was only able to stay one night because they were booked for the weekend. Check-in was quick and easy, the staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is not on Lombard Street which is VERY nice since the traffic never stops on Lombard and motels tend to be noisy there. My room was clean and nice, the bed was... More

Hotel Del Sol was just as advertised, great for kids and fun. While it is not a luxury hotel, it is great for a family trip. The staff was very willing to assist, and always had a personal touch, especially Oscar, who seems to be there 24/7. The area is great, with plenty of places to eat in walking distance.... More

We stayed here for 1 night. 2 rooms came to USD 538 in total. WIFI is free but it sucks. Water costs $3 / bottle in the room. I was on the 1st floor right beside the pool which was so noisy with the kids running around all night. Room was so dated and hair from the last customer was... More

On our business road trip around California, San Francisco was the most difficult place to get a room at the right price, I could not believe the price some of these places charged and then a ridiculous sum on top of that to park, but not here, it was $10 a night to park and the rooms were reasonable.

The place was nice. The staff (Oscar again!) knew their city and were very friendly. Great location. The room was clean. My biggest gripe is that we reserved from Expedia who advertised free parking. We chose this place specifically because of this but were surprised on check-out day to have to pay an extra $50 for the parking. Their response... More

Very comfortable, well-located hotel in Cow Hollow, close to Union Street and the Marina District. Front desk people exceptionally friendly and accomodating. We stayed on St. Patrick's Day weekend, and had some loud neighbors which was a bit of a distraction/annoyance. Room was clean but outside premises a bit dirty. Onsite parking for $10 was key in this busy area,... More
