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 !!

We asked Booking.com through which we had unfortunately booked this motel for our last January staying to help us reimburse our money paid for two terrible nights with bed bugs, but America's Best Inn in SF ignored their inquiry either as the motel did towards our inquiry. Then, we sent our complain to the Business Bureau. They registered it and... More

Dirty, very-very dirty place. Plus we required another room in the middle of night as we caught 2 bed bugs in our bed. We were just shocked. It was 2 am - where to go? We could not sleep till 6 am and left this hotel. Filthy carpet and blankets, walls had blood or booger spots. Terrible place. Will never... More

I'll start by saying that if you're looking for full-service, valet, and pristine accommodations, this is not your hotel. But if you're looking for affordable, close to the Fisherman's Wharf, safe parking structure, and a friendly face to greet you when you check-in, America's Best Inn is a great option. The night manager, Alex must be the happiest and most... More

We were in town for a 49ers game and wanted to stay near the heart of the warf. This hotel had everything we needed without the hefty price tag! I was traveling with my 6mo baby and needed a freezer/fridge for his milk and a microwave to heat his bottles, both of which were standard to all rooms. The receptionist... More

We had to book a hotel in San Francisco on our road trip and we're on a budget. We had really bad luck because there was a convention in town and nothing was available. So we look in our coupon book to find a cheap motel and went here. Not really attractive but it was the only thing that was... More

Me and my boyfriend wanted to go see the sea front in San Francisco at the last minute as we were in Santa Rosa. We were able to book this the day before and were walking distance to everything we wanted to see. The rates were reasonable, rooms were ok as a place to rest our heads. The hotel is... More

I suggest you don't stay at this place. It's expensive, dirty, insects, badly educated employees, and a bunch of liars, that's what we experienced. DO NOT STAY HERE! We stayed here mid Oct. 2013. Upon arrival, when we went to the room we saw that there was no “working table”, and we needed one. At least when we booked the... More
