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.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for a night while my son 's at UCSF Medical Center. It's a 20-mins drive from the hospital, good parking space, nice. comfy room, with small ref and microwave oven. The surrounding area is quiet and is closed to the beach. We enjoyed our stay in this hotel, we were relaxed and... More

Was a great value for the location, sadly not so great for meals if you have to stay close. They are renovating some rooms, the one we stayed in needed some minor repairs. It was clean and staff helpful. NO outside ice machine, likely due to the fact that homeless sleep in nearby doorways. Chinese delevery was not very good... More

I am still astounded at the price of this establishment - no better than a road motel. For not much more, one could stay in comparative luxury elsewhere. The cover was dirty. The sheets - had to clean out a little. We both ended up with red, itchy eyes from the dusty or dirty room. The internet was very very... More
