Very pleased on arrival at this "close to the action" hotel in San Francisco. Our room had a spectacular view, was very clean, quiet, the bed (two in the room) comfortable and the staff very helpful! Using the business kiosk to print out boarding passes for our departure flights was a breeze and very handy. Just a short walk to... More

We were pleasantly surprised at this hotel in San Francisco, located fairly near fisherman's Wharf--walking distance. The hotel was clean and did not have the dreaded bedspreads! Breakfast was included and was fairly typical--waffles. eggs. sausage, cereal, bread, juice, fruit, and coffee. The breakfast area was large but was always crowded when we were there. Parking was provided for a... More

I was in San Francisco (my home of 27 years) for a Monday night speaking engagement. It was a 'last minute' booking by my client. The hotel is well-located, walking distance into Union Street - Cow Hollow District or down to the Wharf. A reasonable cab ride to Union Square or the Financial District. Room was bland, but had all... More

The location and relatively decent view were the only nice parts about this one. I can't say how much we spent on the room, but it was about what I'd pay for a brand new driver. Not to mention the parking fees of $26, plus tax on that. Didn't even bother staying for the breakfast. The parking garage is absolutely... More

Great central location - Fisherman's Wharf was a 10 minute walk away. The room was clean and quiet, with a good range of TV channels. We had a fairly long wait at check-in and the wifi was a bit patchy, but otherwise a good base for exploring San Francisco.

We choose the Comfort Inn by the Bay for both the location and the free daily breakfast. The hotel is located only about 10 minutes by walk to the bay and about 25 minutes to the shops and restaurants around Pier 39, or a 2 minute walk to the muni bus stop. The area around the hotel is very safe... More

Stayed as a group of 45 students for the 5th time. As always the staff are friendly and helpful and breakfast fully stocked with plenty of choice. Rooms are large enough for 4 and are clean. Easy walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf and the cable car. A safe and quiet area. Can take some time to travel between floors as... More

We stayed here 3 nights. Many advantages of staying at this hotel, including location, location, location and reasonable price (for SF). We booked a few months in advance and prepaid, so obtained a nice discount. Rack rate actually doubled by the time we were there. Walking distance to the Wharf, Ghirardelli Square, Lombard St, etc., so happy to pay the... More

Ideal location and good value. However, lots of confusion at desk when checking in and making any requests. Housekeeping could have been better. The location and low rate (for San Francisco) help to overshadow the drawbacks.
