The staff here was very nice, but our room was terrible. There was some sort of water leak in the room that was making the wallpaper peel. The hotel was sold out for the night so we had to stay in the room and when I checked behind where the wallpaper was peeling there was a ton of black mold.... More

Stayed here for two nights on a quick trip to the Bay Area. Planned on doing "touristy", things on the Wharf & Pier 39 as well as eat some amazing food! It was a great location for what we had plan to do. A short quick walk to the wharf and all that it has to offer. The hotel lobby... More

It was a family vacation.The staff at the hotel was very helpful.Either you take bus for "Hop on Hop off" just next to hotel or walk 3-4 mile to main bus terminal which we normally prefer. I recommend this hotel.

We stayed two nights as a break in our UK to New Zealand journey. The hotel isn't on Fishermans Wharf but only a couple of blocks away so no great distances involved. Short walk to the Alcatraz ferry terminal and a few hundred yards from a cable car terminus. Overall good location.

I've stayed at a lot of Holiday Inn's in the UK and EU, and whilst they are not pure luxury, they are always to a very high standard and great value for money. This was my first (and last) stay in a Holiday Inn in the U.S. As you'd expect from the States, the staff a customer care were great.... More

We went to San Francisco last January. We booked a room for three people, via Despegar. com . The fee included the breakfasts but in the hotel they said that it was a mistake and that only two of us had it and we were supposed to paid the third one. Of course we complained but they were not only... More

Sited in a strategical position this hotel was a great choice. It is very close to the sea but also to the famous cable car. The room was comfortable and the room service was perfect. The staff helped me to make a reservation for the Tour Bus and kindly they suggested me what were the best things to see.
