HI was the first stop on our California road trip from SF to LA. We travelled with Virgin Holidays and were given rooms in the "New Building" which was almost exclusively Virgin Travellers. We were on the ground floor and we were less than six feet from the pavement when lying in bed. The noise from the cars and foot... More

This was the final location on the road trip from LA via the big sur and suffered from comparison with La Meriden Best Western and the Hyatt. Noisy air conditioning, and location, no fridge, and all a bit low grade compared to others in the package. Having said that the location is perfect. Lots of nice resturants and the beach... More

While it's right in the immediate Fisherman's Wharf area, the public transit in front of the hotel make it pretty convenient to Downtown SF. Take the bus, or walk two blocks for the streetcar or three blocks for the cable car. The rooms are relatively large, with a decent fully stocked bathroom. Public areas are kept clean and well maintained... More

So location wise this hotel really is brilliant. Fishermans Wharf is the busiest part of San Francisco. If you've been told union square is the place to go I would disagree. All union square is the centre of the downtown district and is surrounded by shops! For restuarants and what is going on along the harbour and Pier 39 then... More

I used Booking.com to reserve the hotel. Site unseen, going blindly into a city we knew nothing about. We were pleasantly surprised. There were three of us. My husband, myself and our 13yo son. We were in town as part of our CA baseball stadium tour. Checking in was uneventful. The rep was pleasant, she smiled and made eye contact.... More

We were only in San Francisco for 4 nights and wanted to be be close to the major tourist sights so the HI was an ideal location. Room was a good size, clean bathroom.

We stayed here to be near all the cafés and eating places. The wharf gets very busy so we got to the early sitting in restaurants so as not to wait. The hotel is very typical Holiday Inn but it suits a short stay in a central area.

Fantastic location within the city. Rooms are large with a large bathroom. Decor slightly dated, rooms slightly musty. But all in all I would stay here again. The room we had wasn't too noisy. Car parking is minimal but we got a space. Hotel even held to the earthquake we had whilst staying here.
