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

What a value for the location! You can walk just about anywhere from this hotel, and if not, the parking is free anyway when you get back! The room was big and relatively clean. The bed was a bit bouncy, but comfortable. The shower had absolutely no pressure. Despite these minor complaints, we were happy with this hotel. Great for... More

Good value, friendly service, free parking!! Large rooms with opening door to small balcony. Clean and comfortable but nothing fancy, no frills. Great location. Was what we expected, no false advertising which is great. Could get a good sleep and our room was even facing roadside and the traffic did not affect us. Very happy!

3 of us shared a 2 bedroom room. We were lucky that we even had a view of the bay from our 3rd floor window. There was some noise from folks being outside a bar on Columbus Ave Friday night but it was quiet on Saturday and Sunday nights. The WiFi was flaky but it usually got the job done... More

It seems impossible to find a clean comfortable hotel in downtown SF with rates lower than 250 a night. We finally stumbled on this place a week before our trip and we are very pleasantly surprised. Though the room was a bit humid and dark, the location is just a 5 min walk to the piers and a 9 min... More

Ideal location at good value. Other reviews were right on for convenience to attractions. Bus in front of Inn, cable car 2 blocks, Fishermans Wharf 3 blocks, many other sites in walking distance. Staff helpful in navigating the area. Would stay here again.

Though our visit was designed to be pleasure and business, we found our stay at the Columbus Motor Inn to be great. It is difficult to find a place in San Francisco that is reasonable and central to where we wanted to visit yet this Inn met our needs perfectly. We visit the town for four days along with another...

Great place to stay. Plenty of parking and it was free! Rooms were ok but to be honest we were in the rooms to get ready, sleep and wind down. Bus stop is right outside the door. Lombard street, cable cars, fisherman wharf is all walking distance. Great place to stay when on a budget!!!

Big rooms, clean, decent price and excellent location. Near Lombard street I walked to Lombard street. Near a great Ross. Walking distance to Fisherman wharf. Fresh fruit in the lobby. Near restaurants. Free parking!
