I traveled here recently with my college-age daughter for a three-night stay. Since she had only been to San Francisco once before, I booked here- knowing full-well the sometimes tacky and always frenetic tourist scene that defines this area; but still appreciating its proximity to the many "must-see' sights in the city that she wanted to visit. San Francisco is... More

Travelled as a couple and booked the Tuscan Hotel months in advance reading the mostly good to great reviews about it. It turned out that the Tuscan, like so many other San Francisco hotels, is an old hotel that is way too pricey compared to the standard. The area at the fishermans warf is not a place you want to...

From the moment was drove into the portico, our interaction with hotel staff couldn't have been better. The valet, check-in, concierge, check-out people all went out of their way to be engaging, courteous and helpful. Hotel management should be proud of the staff they have hired and maintained, I don't think I have come across better. The hotel is clean,... More

I liked this hotel - nice accommodations, great location and friendly staff. It's a few blocks from Fisherman's Wharf, so it's easy to get where you want to go. There is nice restaurant in the same building and several within walking distance.

We had 1 night to spend in San Francisco and we picked the Best Western Tuscan due to the great location very close to Fishermans Wharf. The room was very clean and nice we had enough room for our family of 4. The price was very reasonable compared to all the other hotels in this area. We would recommend this... More

San Francisco hotels are pricey but this was one that is worth the money, good location for fisherman's wharf. Customer service was excellent even by American standards. Get your breakfast at Hollywood cafe down the road and have a look in the cost plus world market shop between the two as well - great for browsing.

Really good location for a first time traveller to San Francisco. Extremely comfy beds. friendly helpful staff. Very noisy though as our room was facing the road; I felt like I was actually sleeping at the bus stop directly opposite and had to wear ear plugs. Could be sorted with some decent well sealed windows!!

Expected a nice clean environment, but not the quaint beauty of this Best Western ideally located to enjoy the SF Wharf, with terrific variety of restaurants within walking distance, and prices to fit any budget. Staff were exceptionally friendly and professional and efficient. Rooms are surprisingly spacious and smartly furnished. Perhaps the best value in San Francisco.

Great hotel! Only a block or two from fisherman's warf, clean, friendly staff, and valet parking options! The hotel was expensive, but comparable for the area! Valet parking was $50 + taxes, but you could come and go as you choose. Rooms were small, but since we were on our honeymoon that was fine! :) They have free coffee in... More
