I've stayed here twice. Off season rate (before taxes, etc.) of $126 including parking on-site for a huge room with a view of Coit Tower and the Bay Bridge can't be beat. Only downside is that the rooms looking out toward Broadway and Coit Tower are very noisy so hopefully you're either deaf or can sleep with ear plugs. I... More

Right in Chinatown, I slept well. Light sleepers should ask for an inside facing room, otherwise traffic can be loud. Rooms are clean and conveniently located for shopping, piers, cable cars and Russian hill. Strip clubs are less than a block away, so if that freaks you out don't stay here! Free parking. Excellent, economical place to stay.

We stayed here one night while exploring San Francisco. Even though there were external doors, and there were some interesting establishments around the corner, I felt very safe. The motel is set back from the street. The price was right, the rooms were very clean. There was a little outside noise, but it is located the heart of a large... More

Checked out before noon, after 1st night and motel only charged us for the 1st night, no questions asked. Room had floor to... More

Good value hotel in good area. The staff is friendly, would stay again. The area going towards the bay is a little iffy, with the types of bars but you can't beat the location. It is a motor inn and it has exterior hall ways so your door opens to the outside and the noise is kind of loud but... More

The staff was great and the price could not be beat, plus the free parking and access to internet were a plus. Right next to Grant Street in Chinatown and a walk around the corner to Columbus and several fantastic Italian Restaurants. I do not know what everyone else was complaining about noise. We stayed in 102 and it was... More

Ok, first things first, this is a Motor Inn. If this is not your traveling style, then you might be disappointed and should consider other options. However, if you are ok with this, then read ahead... Pros: - good for those on a budget - no frills - it's a basic room. However, the frills would be that you get... More

I had chosen this hotel because it was the best combination between location in SF, reviews from other customers and price. We were not disappointed. The room was good, clean with comfortable beds. Parking was free (this is a key plus in SF), the location in Cinatown just at the edge of Little Italy was giving accesss to many good... More

I stayed at this hotel twice. First with my husband and kids and it worked out great. Then a friend wanted to go to SF so I rebooked it. Each time it was the best rate in such a key location. It is right on the fringe of Chinatown and North Beach. Great restaurants and cafes abound. All your chinatown... More
