First of all, I have to say that Oscar was just amazing. He was so helpful in telling me about the area and going over the map and mass transit with me. The hotel room was clean and neat; however, it smelled very musty, even with the window open. You could tell there were a few holes or large indents... More

We have stayed at the Hotel Del Sol before and returned for many reasons. The hotel/motel is bright and cheery, the rooms are comfortable and clean, and the staff is friendly and helpful. This is not your standard hotel. It is a converted motel, but the rooms have been updated and are decorated nicely. Breakfast is set up in the... More

The hotel is basically a spruced up motel, with a tasteful, mid-century look, a little whimsical. The service, by Phil Henry, was outstanding. The location, in the Marina, is good, and it has air conditioning which came in handy as it was unusually hot the night we stayed there. The Wi Fi is free! My main complaint would be the... More

Overpriced for the quality. Fresh paint on an old Motel. Close to a noisy street, Great Neighborhoods all around. Closet to the Marina area. Good bus access to the city center. Rent a bike to get around.

If you're looking for a place to stay in San Fran that is out of the "downtown" area Hotel Del Sol is a great choice. Easily accessible by car, bus or foot it has friendly staff, clean rooms and a great feel. Dogs welcome! A special thanks to Oscar for some great tips to get around, as well as the... More

The perfect location from which to tour San Francisco at the end of our motorcycle road trip. Oscar made us very welcome from the minute we arrived, his knowledge of the local area is second to none, his restaurant recommendations were all perfect, and just a walk away. The hotel itself is bright and welcoming, and parking our motorcycles outside... More

I booked when there was a convention on and therefore it was very expensive! Other than that it was perfect my daughter and I had a great time. Staff where very friendly and helpful. Get them to arrange a Car for you from the airport cheaper and very comfortable. Love it!

Put aside the fact that room rates for SF hotels are in another world, the Del Sol was a nice stay for two nights recently. Pluses are: location, $10 parking, quality linens on the bed, fresh pastries and coffee in the morning. The attraction of the "flower-power" exterior decor and tiny swimming pool is up to your personal taste. Was... More

Hotel has good location. Public transport all around. Pros: helpful and kind staff; public transportation; location; not up the hill; swimming pool and good wifi signal; good continental breakfast. Cons: a bit smelly and expensive, but thats the common problem of SF hotel industry I guess.

This quaint hotel motel was in a great location in the Marina and Cows Hollow area. Lots of nice shops, outdoor dining and bars and lovely streets for walks either up steep hills or to the water. I felt everything was virtually at our door step. The rooms were well appointed and clean. We had a one bedroom suite and... More
