This hotel has only two things going for it - the location in Chinatown (20 minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf) and free parking. Otherwise it is grossly overpriced for what you get: a drab room with cracked bathroom fixtures and questionable hygienic standards in a run-down building. Sleeping is a major challenge, first because the bed leaves a lot to... More

Be warned, the price you see is not the price you will be charged. We visited California/Nevada and Arizona during a 21 night fly drive of the south west staying in various hotels of differing standards. Not only was the Royal Pacific Motor Inn the most expensive, it was by far at the lower end of quality. Our other hotels... More

Rooms are clean and big enough to be satisfied. They're no new, not too silent (if you do mind street noises ask for a back side room) but in anche absolutely bright position to visit SF if you are choosing to stay in downtown. In the last corner of china town, 50 mt before little italy begins, 15 mins walking... More

If you don't care about how it looks this is the perfect place. It's noisy, and you can hear everything from the busy street outside. It's clean. The pillows suck. The front desk isn't very helpful in English. We needed directions and were quite confused - the staff wasn't very willing to help. They are one of the few hotels... More

1st thing we noticed was a musty smell when we entered. Went to turn on the A/C but there is none. We also found, what seems to be mold, on the curtains and in the bathroom. The beds are firm, but the pillows are thin little things. The tv is from the 80's and gets 14 local channels. I really... More

Stayed for 3 nights at this hotel in San Fransisco last summer. We didn't have high expectations, because we just needed a place to sleep, not to hang around. But we were surprised! The location was absolutely perfect! China Town is just around the corner and it's easy to walk to every single attraction in San Fransisco including the pier... More

I have nothing to say against this accommodation. It was clean, it has great location and parking was also provided. WIFI in the room, comfortable bed, kind staff and they also have a room under supervision for your luggage at the day when you need to leave the room, but have a lot of time before you need to leave...

I stayed here for two nights with my two teenaged kids a couple of weeks ago. The location is good in that it's centrally located, right on the border between Chinatown and Little Italy. It's a little dicey in that there are strip clubs right nearby, but my kids are old enough that we made a joke out of it.... More

I stayed three nights at this centrally located motel on the edge of Chinatown that is next door to North Beach (Little Italy). Pros for this accommodation are price, location, free parking, and free Wi-Fi. Nothing really con because we had regular room service, and you have to temper your expectation considering the price point. I agree the décor was... More

First the bad: no internet. It was there, but rarely worked so don't expect to use it. Hallways were pretty old and kinda of gross, same with balcony. That said, fabulous location on edge of Chinatown and N Beach Italian restaurants, walking to piers, , Financial Area, Ferry bldg, etc. Free parking, excellent deal, low room rates. Room itself was... More
