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.

Spent 3 days with my family at this hotel. We stayed in a suite, including a living room with pullout sofa. Overall the hotel was clean. Bathroom was a good size. Microwave and mini fridge worked. Decent walking distance from the wharf and 3 blocks from a trolley stop. The cons, barely any water pressure in the shower. The breakfast... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during our vacation. Our room was relatively high, so we had a wonderful view from our window. The room itself was clean and comfortable. Note that rooms facing the main street in lower floors may experience some noise due to the traffic. The only thing which we did not like was that ~20 minutes... More

This hotel is walking distance to a lot of the SF attractions you would want to be near. The hotel itself was average, but clean. We didn't spend a lot of time in our room so it worked for us. My advice is to stop at a nearby market for water and snacks because the hotel didn't have any options... More

Stayed for 4 nights in July 2014. Located10 minutes from Fishermans Wharf and it's plethora of good and not so good bars,shops and restaurants. This place is not pretending or even trying to be boutique or luxury. It is a good place to base yourself for a few days. Room entirely acceptable and big enough for us. Breakfast 'free' buffet...

I booked one night on June 19 for my mother-in-law and sister-in-law (my wife and I needed to make a one day side trip). We booked a 1 room suite so that my mother-in-law would have the bedroom and my sister-in-law would have the pull out sofa. When they arrived after 9:00 PM and pulled out the sofa bed, the... More

When I booked this place I thought "its kind of far from downtown" but to my surprise it was a great location. The rooms were clean, staff very helpful, breakfast good. The lady at the desk was extremely helpful when our ride to the airport was late, she made a special call and all was taken care of. The bus... More

Rooms are clean, quiet and quite large. The complementary breakfast was excellent and there were lots of options. The room had a safe but no microwave or fridge. The location of this hotel is excellent. It is only a short drive to many attractions. Walk out the front door and you can walk to the waterfront, Fisherman's Wharf or Russian... More
