Feels really old, you can hear outside noise all night, for the money you pay you can get in a better location and better hotel. Wouldn't stay here again. Rooms are really small. Clean hotel, just not a 3 star

I've stayed at several hotels near Fisherman's Wharf over the years and this has got to be the friendliest hotel staff I've ever encountered. From the front desk to the valets to housekeeping, everyone was always friendly and very helpful. We had such a great experience because of them. The wine social (sparkling apple juice for the kids) each evening... More

The over all appearance of the hotel, makes you believe that you paid for something nice to spend your vacation. But once insided, its a different story. This overpriced hotel is sooo cramped and small, that is makes you want to leave.

We took our granddaughter here for her first trip to San Francisco. Perfect location for all of the touristy activities in Fisherman's Wharf. This was our second visit to this propoerty and the staff was totally accomodating and friendly. The rooms have been renovated and priced very reasonably for this area. Would stay here again.

This hotel is considered to be in the Fisherman’s Wharf area but be forewarned its not as close as it appears to be on the map. Its about 3 blocks in and off to the side from the wharf area. So you’re looking at about a 15 minute walk to where all the action is. If this doesn’t bother you... More

Hi Janet E - Thanks for staying with us and for taking the time to share your kind words and open feedback. We really are only 2 blocks from Fisherman's Wharf. We're on the corner of North Point Street and Mason. One block up Mason is Beach Street, the next block up is Jefferson Street. Voila, you're at the Wharf,... More

We stayed here for three nights back in June and it was great. The location is perfect for Fisherman's Wharf, the piers (Alcatraz), cable car and Lombard street and there are super markets, cafes, bars, restaurants and shops nearby as well. Rooms were small but really nice and clean, staff were always very friendly and helpful and the wine reception... More

Great place, kind employs and priceless location, just few minutes walk to Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39. My room was clean and comfy, not too big, but reasonable for a king bed room. Booked and paid through web has a very reasonable price.

Nice hotel in Fisherman's Wharf. Kind of expensive, but a good deal for the area. Check-in was slow because I had to wait for a while for a valet person to show up at 8pm; $50 + tax is pretty ridiculous for parking, by the way. Rooms are relatively small but are nicely decorated and the beds are extremely comfortable.... More

Just set back from Fishermans wharf the Tuscan Inn is a clean and modern hotel within striking distance of pier 39 (restaurants) pier 33 ( Alcatraz) and the city sightseeing tours. Offers complimentary coffee and great apples, the only criticism is the parking costs at $55 + tax per night which is hard to justify, but typical of most cities.

Located steps away from Pier 39 and close to all public transportation this hotel was a great spot to stay. All employees went out of their way to make our experience enjoyable. The lobby and rooms were clean. The wine reception was a nice added touch. Guest room a bit small but of course we were not in it except... More
