The Columbus Motor Inn is fantastic value and well located. We were happy with the room size and free parking. The rooms dont have a fridge but you can hire one for $5 a night if you nedd one. There is an ice machine and vending machine near the elevator. This hotel isn't the Ritz but a clean and comfortable... More

I have to admit that I was a little worried because the price was so incredibly reasonable. However, we were very pleased with our stay and would definitely stay here again if in the area. The location is fantastic; we were able to walk to many attractions and nearby restaurants with ease. The decor was updated and newer. Rooms were... More

My husband and I and our three daughters thoroughly enjoyed our stay here for several reasons. First, our room was spacious, very clean, fresh, and comfortable. We were particularly impressed with the soft and unusually clean carpet. Second, the two male attendants at the front desk were kind, professional, and helped us with everything we needed including directions, ideas, luggage,... More

We enjoyed our stay here, as we were able to walk nearly everywhere we wanted to visit. We were only in San Fran a short period of time, so this hotel really helped us make the most of that time. This hotel is literally two blocks away from the cable car and walking distance to the wharf, the Alcatraz ferry,... More

Stayed 2 nights at the Columbus Motor Inn. Facility is near everything - we were able to walk almost everywhere we wanted to visit, including Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39 and Ghirardelli’s Square. Also great was the proximity to transit lines for places a little too far to walk. The property is older but well maintained and the staff was very... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Columbus Motor Inn. Unfortunately we had to drive there, which is an experience in itself in San Francisco! We were stuck in an hour’s worth of traffic and then found we couldn’t turn left to get to our hotel. Not the hotel’s fault, but just bear in mind that the hotel is quite... More

Stayed 3 nights at the Columbus Motor Inn, it is close enough to Fisherman's wharf, North Beach, & China Town to walk; also very close to the trams and there is a bus stop right outside. It also has free parking, although there aren't loads of spaces. My room was nice- the bathroom would have benefited greatly from a lick... More

Never having been to SF, I did a lot of research before our trip. Decent hotels in the desirable parts of town were so expensive and then with our rental car, most were going to charge an additional $40+ a night for parking. After hours of research I was frustrated and confused, and I finally came across the reviews for... More

We got a 2-room suite, as we were traveling with our soon. The rooms were both quite spacious, and pristinely clean. Add free parking, great location, and very reasonable pricing, and we were delighted with this motor in. It is NOT a luxury hotel. There is no lobby - just a front desk. It's on a commercial street -- as... More

We rented a 2 bedroom suite for our family on our visit to San Francisco. The rooms were large and well furnished. The location is very convenient to the waterfront, cable cars, telegraph hill, and many other tourist attractions. And the free parking is a fantastic and rare luxury. I strongly recommend this place.
