Husband and I were in the bay area for our 10 year anniversary. We stayed 2 previous nights in Monterey and had sprung for the pricey oceanfront inn there. So when we moved to the city I was hoping not to pay over $300 a night for a room plus parking. Read the reviews for this place on trip advisor.... More

the location is excellent, with access to public transportation and walking distance from the fisherman wharf. the rooms are not so great, not super clean, not very decorated, and not modern. however it has everything you need, a fridge a bed and a good shower. i am not familiar with other hotel prices but the price for this kind of...

We were attracted to the Columbus by the many reviews commenting on how close it is to Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39. Even with our limited mobility it was an easy walk with interesting stores along the way. Although there is no restaurant in the hotel Pat's Cafe is just around the corner on Taylor Street and is great for... More

My wife and I recently stayed here for the 5 nights we were in SF. The choice to stay here met all of my expectations. We did have a car but only moved it for our trip to Muir Woods and Sausalito, so the free parking was great. All the staff was friendly and helpful, check in and out was... More

A little treasure of a place, free wifi and most importantly free parking. Guy on checkin was very friendly and welcoming. Room was very spacious, not a great view from our window, but we were only here one night for our night tour of Alcatraz and flight home the following day. It had aircon, great shower and the bed was... More

After reading some of the reviews on TA, I was comfortable booking here; however, I was VERY pleased upon arrival. Check in was easy. We had a King room on the 3rd floor facing Columbus Ave. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The hotel is not new, but it is very nice and clean. There was no "musty" smell... More

Terrific location for us. Lombard Street is a few streets away. The cable car station is just around the corner but get there when it opens as the queue gets huge as the day wears on. The rooms were clean and beds comfy. Free parking. No breakfast but reception recommended Pat's Cafe around the corner and it was fantastic. Fisherman's... More

I chose this hotel on the basis of the free parking and the fact that we (travelling with young adult daughters) could share a suite to keep the cost down. The room was a one King, one Double suite with one bathroom. It faced the back and was sunny and also very quiet so we were able to sleep with... More

This was in a great location couple of blocks away from Fishermans harbor. Hotel was very Clean and comfy. Unfortunately the carpets had just been cleaned when we arrived so they were on the damp side. All in all great hotel would stay again.

4 of us stayed in a 2 bed suite for 4 nights in mid Sep. We found the location & parking perfect for us. Our room was spacious & perfectly appointed. the guys on the front desk were happy and extremely helpful & chatty. Fisherman's wharf is only a 5-10min walk away; there is a Walgreens on the next block... More
