The last time we stayed here about a couple of years ago, we just stayed in an ordinary room. This time, we stayed in a room for the disabled. Great room, just a little problem with the front door! The price of the room per night is reasonable!

I recently had surgery at UCSF and my husband needed a place to stay for a week and a half. Honestly, we stayed here based on the fact that they have a shuttle van that runs to and from the hospital twice a day, Monday - Thursday. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. The motel is an older non-chain... More

San Francisco is an expensive city, so this hotel might appeal to those looking for a more affordable place to stay. It is close to the ocean and the outside has a weathered look. The rooms are minimalist but do have a small refrigerator and microwave and are spotlessly clean. No elevator and, although every room faces the ocean, even... More

Quiet, away from the maddening crowd...met our needs: ease of access, easy travel to UCSF Medical Center; inexpensive for SF...simple room adequate for our needs; great for decompressing after a full day at UCSF while watching the ocean across the Great Highway; staff friendly, helpful

The Great Highway Inn was recommended to us by a friend familiar with San Francisco. We were looking for something a little bit different. Not just your ordinary chain hotel. This foot the bill!! Nice Location with easy access to all of our needs. Loved the closeness to the beach!! Room and amenities were average but considering what you get... More

We were in San Francisco during Pride week, so the hotel and vacation rental choices were slim to none. After checking it out on the web, we booked the Great Highway Inn. A family of 5 (3 teens) had great accommodations, including a separate bedroom. The unit was clean, but dated, like an older 1960's style hotel. Everything worked well,... More

Great Highway Inn doesn't aspire to resort-style amenities, but does excel at the essentials: Clean, safe, comfortable lodging with good service (including free WiFi that averaged 6+ Mbps, which is more than many tonier places give you.) It's in the middle of a long-term renovation project, but even the older section, where I stayed, was in perfectly functional shape. Location... More

We've stayed at this hotel twice now, for our child with UCSF Hospital visits. We've tried quite a few hotels over the past few years & this one we know we can count on. They have booked our family & my mother in rooms right next to each other on ground level for our child's wheelchair which I think is... More

Friendly people to greet you. The place could use a little updating, but clean. Great location. Across the street from the ocean. Next to Golden Gate Park. The next block is the end of the N Judah subway. Easy way to get to Union Square and other restaurants.
