Our room was large enough with a decent shower and clean bedding. It's located on the edge of Chinatown so well within walking reach of the City area. Facilities equal none but if you're visiting the city with a car then the parking is pretty invaluable I'd stay there again

Booked this motel blind off the internet and was pleasantly surprised by quality and value. If it's your first time to SF then note at the time of writing its $15 dollars a day to park your car in the city but this motel offers free parking ! Oh and a couple of other things the first time SF visitor... More

I stayed here with a friend for 3 days. It was located right on the end of china town, about a 25 minutes walk down to fishermans wharf. Hotel room was clean and was cleaned daily. Wifi was average. Had a great burger place over the road called sam's burgers! For our budget it was a good motel.

The hotel is located in chinatown so very close to the city center. The room and bathroom were very big and clean. The arrival wasnt the best possible as there were problems with the lift and we had to take the luggage up to the first floor through the parking ramp but this was the only problem we found. Bathroom... More

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
