4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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!!!

The Columbus Motor Inn is at the perfect location for access to area attractions, transportation, Fisherman's Wharf etc. We walked to most places in the area and then used out 48 hr pass on The Big Bus line to get to other places. Parked our car in their garage, no extra charge added on, and never had to move until... More

The location of this hotel is perfect, plus free parking. The staff was cheerful, friendly and helpful. They sent us to local restaurants for dinner (fabulous Italian) and great breakfast within walking distance. The room was not fancy but clean and quiet. The location is a great starting point for a walking tour of San Francisco. We would stay here... More

Just returned with my teenager from a 5 night stay @ the CMI. The rooms are a little dated (but clean & quiet), we had 2 double beds, a large flat screen tv, hair dryer, soap & shampoo, a fridge ($5 per day extra). There was free parking but we didn't have a car since the city is easy to... More

If you'd like to be in walking distance to North Beach, Chinatown and the Wharf and you want to be in a neighborhood setting versus a tourist or business area, then this is the place. You get to experience things like a local. LOTS of unique restaurants and galleries. Easy access to anywhere via bus which stops directly in front... More

This hotel had one of the best beds we've slept on that's not our own. The room was clean, water pressure in the shower was good, and it's just a few blocks away from Fisherman's Wharf, great street eats, the Trolley, and touring buses. Just a few blocks further and you're at Pier 39. We didn't have a car, but... More
