you'd think this place would not have good rooms for the rates we had, but they were comfortable and everyone got a good nights sleep. we were traveling on a budget and this place definitely met our needs. staff was very friendly and helped us with getting around san francisco and also suggested some good restaurants.

I was looking for a place to stay in San Francisco and i came across the Americas Best Inn San Francisco. The price was reasonable for a San Francisco Hotel. The location is great, close to fishermans wharf, a short bus ride to downtown and all the scenic stops. The rooms were clean and I felt safe there. I recommend... More

This place is totally overpriced... And they say by Fishermans wharf - not even close! The Comfort inn across the street is the same price I should have stayed there.. The breakfast is a joke - coffee dispenser and a croissant .. Room amenities include a tiny bar if soap and a tiny tear- package of toothpaste .. Parking lot... More

The room was average but clean. The breakfast was a joke. Stale croissant and cold coffee only. No choice at all.The location was OK for fisherman's wharf and bus routes and we felt quite safe walking around after dark, but the hotel itself was pretty grim. I would only stay there again if I was very desperate. I would prefer... More

From the pictures that I saw on the web, this looked like a great place to stay and even though it was not all bad, the hotel is in desperate need of an update (and they already have plans to do so). One extremely negative is that the hotel does not have "at-least" one parking space for each guest room... More

We booked this truly appalling motel at the last minute, on the last day of our trip to California. That was a lesson well learnt, I will NEVER leave booking anywhere to the last minute again. The parking was not ideal, but to be fair, I can understand that they only had a certain amount of space and to accommodate... More

This was by far our worst hotel we stayed in during our vacation in California! After reading others reviews, and seeing they experienced bed bugs, I now know where all the bumps on my son came from! The parking was terrible! You had to leave your keys at the desk if you parked in front of somebody, since you had... More

Unbelievably rude staff (Michael) I was yelled at and told if I did not like the hotel or have any problems we do not care and you can leave! terrible overall experience, and BTW Don't use Booking.com either they will be of no help and clearly don't car what hotels they partner with.

Me and my girlfriend traveled through four states and we haven't encounter a worse dump than this - Americas Worst Inn. We checked in for 3 days to a dirty and worn out room (room no 115). Worst of all upon our awakening we realised the place was infested with bed bugs. When we got down to the reception it... More

Cheapest place close to the wharf. Room is poor, and worn out. But the worst part of spending 115 on a one night stay, here, is the staff. Rude dudes, who don't have any sense of talking to guests in a decent way. Spend a little more, and avoid this dump !!
