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

I stayed two nights in April, it's next to the beach and Golden Gate Park. If you like walking its about 5 miles from the Golden Gate Bridge. No real shops or restaurants near to hotel. Old exterior and rooms are dated, clean, fairly quiet at night, nothing special but Ok

Location was great, just a short walk to the beach and park but the exterior and interior was far from good. Both rooms, even though they were non-smoking reeked of cigarettes and marijuana. Beds were pretty comfortable but the blankets and spread were so scratchy and smelly we didn't even use them. If you're someone who plans on spending most... More

Checking out colleges in the area and we were only staying a short time. This one was available and close to where we needed to go. Great location: across Ocean Beach and Golden Gate Park. Limited parking near room but restricted street parking available. Overall hotel is run down and outdated. Had difficult time checking in even though we had... More

Decent hotel for decent price. It worked for a couple day stay. Nice size room. Always found free parking. The breakfast rolls were hard and unediable. The furniture and decor in our room was updated. The room was just barely clean. The walls had lots of marks, mildew in shower. Sheets seemed clean and bed was comfortable.

Great location, across the street from Golden Gate Park and the beach. I couldn't see the ocean from my second story room but had a view of the dunes. Very flat surface which is easy for walking and biking. There are two portions of this motel. one remodeled and one has not been. I was there because my wife was... More

I stayed here 2 times, a year apart. It was just conveniently located for my purpose (running race in Golden Gate park) but pricey for something this basic and old. I won't stay here any more. I'd rather drive farther and get a better hotel. It does have a fridge and the room is fairly large but the floor is... More

This hotel was the perfect location for me to be at the St Jude Walk at 6:30am. The room was clean and it has a TV, microwave & frig, that's it. No alarm clock, no hair dryer - but that's ok because I knew that ahead of time. I had a 3rd floor room which gave me a little bit... More

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
