This hotel is comfortable, but average. They advertise free wifi but this very rarely works. The breakfast was awful, like a school cafeteria atmosphere and the food was awful. The eggs didn't look like any eggs that I had ever seen, and they expected you to clear your own plates. Location was good, about a 10-15 walk to Fisherman's Wharf.... More

Nice clean room in an excellent location. Walking distance to the piers and close to many bus stops. Breakfast was good, except they ran out of english muffins on the second day and we never saw another for the rest of the week. I'm only mentioning this, because the eggs and sausage are tailored to make breakfast sandwiches on muffins.... More

Great hotel near Fisherman's Wharf area. Close to everything. Exceptionally clean hotel with great friendly staff. Huge free breakfast in large eating area off the lobby. Located at the corner of Van Ness and Lombard and a 10 minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf area. Safe area of town with a lot of casual walkers. Transportation stops nearby. Get a City... More

Admittedly, no hotels are cheap in San Francisco but I would have expected better at this price. I have stayed before and at least there was a view of the bay - this time - just rooms and other properties to the rear. Wifi was a problem and the receptionist was little or no help. Won't bother staying here again.

This is a very nice hotel. A great value in a very nice location. The staff is very helpful and the hotel is clean. You can walk to and from the Fisherman's Warf and there are easily accessible buses to get to those sites further away. Parking is very reasonable compared to the going rate so park your car and...

Wow, and I don't necessarily mean that in a good way. We arrived in the early afternoon and was promptly given our room keys. The clerk was not rude, but was certainly not friendly. When we arrived at the room we discovered that it had not been cleaned from the night before. Back to the desk, dragging our luggage to... More

Even though this was not a new hotel, it was very neat, and clean. Front desk staff( especially Eva) helped us with travel arrangements,suggested restaurants etc. It was nice to get up in the morning and be greeted by the friendly housekeeping staff in the hallway. Our room had a view of the Golden Gate Bridge-suggest you ask for a... More

We recently (October 2014) spent a week in San Francisco and were delighted that we chose to stay at the Comfort Inn by the Bay. Not only was it an ideal location for excursions to the Wharf area but it had transit access to many other parts of the city. The staff were excellent in their helpfulness and starting each... More

Reservation wrong upon check-in, for $602 dollars we received a water damaged dirty room with an ancient rollaway bed brought in. Next morning they moved us to a room with two beds, however this room also had water damaged soggy walls in addition to mold-covered curtains with suspicious brown stains as well. The mold in corners of bathroom tile was... More

If you want to pay under $275/night for a hotel room in San Fran, this isn't a bad choice. Typical Comfort Inn rooms, nothing fancy but clean and comfortable beds. Continental breakfast was.good and well stocked. Location is convenient to Fisherman's Wharf. Only knock on the Hotel is the underground parking. Tight fit and concrete pillars a challenge while costing... More
