The room I got was in the half of the hotel that looks older. It was still nice inside aside from the lumpy bed. It is walking distance to the beach and a brewery. There's NO ice machine or vending machines, However, it DID have a refrigerator and ice tray as well as a microwave. I stayed there for a... More

The best thing about this hotel is the the view - right to sunset on the Pacific ocean, very close to Golden Bridge Park. Second thing was the price :) they do not tell this, but two bed room is actually an apartment, which was perfect for four of us. The worst thing was the breakfast, which was a joke.... More

These rooms aren't super cutesy, but I love the location of this hotel, It is across the street from the beach and also Golden Gate Park. Parking is free. It is two blocks from the N line and it is quiet. The rooms are spacioius and they have a refrigerator and microwave and they are reasonably priced. Free coffee and... More

Average rooms and a bit musty. No live insects seen but some were left squashed on the walls. Rooms are large with beds separated but spartan without simple amenities like a hotel directory, channel guide, or note pads.The restaurant is closed and at night there aren't local services within about 4 blocks even including a hotel soda machine. Some rooms... More

Stayed here cause it was cheap and on the beach. Location is right across from Ocean Beach. N tram into town takes about 30 minutes. Room was not ready at 4pm check-in time. Appearance is like something out of a gang war film. The outside of the building is decaying. However rooms inside are quite nice, large, good wifi, clean... More

We decided to spent a couple of days in San Francisco for vacation. A friend referred this motel for its price and location. Did not expect too much since this is only 2 stars motel. Free wifi and free parking is what we want. But we also got a nice room that's clean and big enough for 4 of us.... More

Convenient location, very nice staff and very accommodating to our needs, parking available and free. Coffee and pastries in the office in the am. Quiet hotel. Room smells did not bother my allergies. Though I would have preferred a firmer bed, the room was clean and it was a very nice size room with a frig. But I wish they... More

My Dad had multiple medical appointments at the nearby Veteran's hospital. We live three hours away so I got us a room. Attempted to check in early but the room was not ready. Later, after I checked in and got the keys I found there was no elevator and the room was on the second floor. I explained that my... More

If you want to be close to the beach and Golden Gate park this is a good option. The property is old and dated (I've been in bigger bathrooms in Japan). There are some restaurant options nearby and the Muni N line is only two blocks away.

We needed a place near UCSF. Quaint rooms similar to the small villas in Santa Monica. Across the street from the Beach, shuttle service to the hospital. Pleasant staff that are willing to do what needs to be done to make your stay comfortable. We were pleased with our stay. I understand there are renovations planned for the near future.... More
