Really nice and clean spacious rooms. Free parking which was good. We stayed three nights the continental breakfast was useful to start the day. Although we were about 20min walk from fishermans walk we didnt mind as we went different ways and saw different things.Good service. Really made to feel welcome by the front desk staff. Nice pool which was... More

We recently stayed here for 4 nights whilst we explored San Francisco. This is a small property in a quiet area. Our room was large with a comfortable bed and well appointed bathroom. The front desk staff were incredibly helpful and gave us plenty of advice regarding good areas to eat in and places to visit slightly off the main... More

Stayed here on a family holiday with our 2 yo. We arrived very early and asked if we would be able to leave our car parked at the hotel until check in time. Not only did the staff let us check in early, they also upgraded our room free of charge. We had an amazing room with living area- with... More

We needed to be in town to see a friend at UCSF and wanted to stay the night but not deal with a big fancy hotel. This place was perfect. Cute and clean. Whimsical. Very "Bird Cage" (the movie) feel. We will remember bathing suits next time as the pool is heated to 82 degrees. I could even bring the... More

Stayed here for two nights with my wife and 2 children; much more expensive then expected. Really thought it would be cleaner and more modern -- it is an "upgraded motel". Thinks seemed old and a bit dirty. Pool was kept at "82 degrees" per staff; but was cool and partially obstructed under the building from any sun. Does have... More

Room was fine but this is actually a motel with dingy,grubby staircases to reach your rooms, I was a bit disappointed to be honest . Not sure it is appropriate to serve breakfast in the tiny reception area, bizarre !

Overall-it was a great location with easy access to all of SF. We wanted a suite since we had our 2 little kids with us and we didn't want to be all in one room for 3 nights. This hotel fit our needs for the suite at a reasonable price. The staff was friendly enough and helpful. It is a... More

We booked this room last minute to be close to a wedding that we planned to attend in the presidio. All rooms appeared to be booked online but when I called, I spoke with the reservationist at the front desk that happened to have one room left. Staff was super helpful and polite. Check in was easy.

Had a good stay in San Francisco. Check inn was pretty good and overall staff was friendly. Last day the lady was very unfriendly and basically told us to get some breakfast somewhere else ( as other guest had al ready finished all) although this was included. Rooms are small but functional, could have been cleaner.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Designed to celebrate California's lively culture, the Hotel Del Sol is a cheerful explosion of the West Coast spirit. Once a 50s-style motor lodge, it has been newly transformed to offer the stylings and personalized service of a boutique hotel. The spacious guestrooms evoke the bright and airy interior of a California beach house. Relaxing hammocks, a sparkling pool and towering palm trees in the courtyard is a colorful feast for the eyes. ... more   less
