Would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting San Francisco. Great parking, and fabulous customer service! We have a dear favorite, Oscar, who is incredible each time we come to stay (a few times a year). Oscar is so helpful and makes our stay memorable...

We decided to go to San Francisco at the last minute so it was hard to find a hotel! Thankfully, we managed to get a room for 3 nights at this hotel and it was pretty good! The hotel was perfectly located for us (a few minutes away from really good restaurants and bars), the room was comfortable and colorful... More

Hotel was fantastic, pool was heated and great for the kids, breakfast was an added bonus and the staff were fantastic-especially Oscar. Neighbourhood was safe and user friendly. Would have no...

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the room was clean and modern. We loved our breakfasts in the morning. This is a fantastic location in the city as it was easy to walk to many places to eat and shop. We would certainly stay here again.

A great motel-type hotel in a good location. A couple of blocks from Union Street, the bay and about 20 mins walk from Fishermans Wharf. If you have a car, this is a great option. If you are a runner, this is a great spot to start a morning run along the bay to the bridge and back. One of... More

This hotel does the little things to make sure you have an enjoyable stay. There is a small continental breakfast in the morning milk and cookies in the afternoon. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I thought the room itself was comfortable. We had a room with a pull out couch in the front room and a double bed... More

Our family with 3 teenagers loved the hip, young vibe of the Hotel del Sol. Our rooms (family suites) were spacious, clean, comfortable and colorful. The breakfast was convenient and delicious. The location could not be better with Union St. shops and restaurants and the Marina Green/Golden Gate views both a few minutes on foot. We would stay here again... More

This small clean adorably furnished hotel was once an old motor lodge. But it has been refurbished and redone in a fun clean way. Comfy and close to Cow Hollow with it's strips of lovely restaurants, funky shops, and mass transit (best bus system anywhere), it also proved to be walking district to the Presidio and the water.

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
