I quite like Holiday Inn's, they do seem to have a consistent quality. This place was clean, with friendly staff and had really big rooms by my standard. The area is good, not far from a lot of attractions. I'd stay here again and recommend it to friends and family.

Hotel, room quality: typical Holiday Inn, clean, newish, well maintained, good furniture and good bed, decent lighting. Really can't fault much. We didn't pay for a view and we didn't get one. Extremely quiet location especially at night not much traffic. Location: I thought the location was pretty good, obviously walkable to The wharf areas and many piers. It was... More

Clean room/linen, friendly staff but was very noisy during the night, ear plugs were provided next to the bed so at least they are trying to help, the single glaze windows make it sound like they are wide. Would stay again but will ask for window facing the bay.

Wow, loved staying here, but the breakfast was different for us coming from Australia, so we ended up getting coffees only.......Turkey Sausages that looked plastic , Eggs made from powder, everything was really different.............struggled to recognise anything.............but the restaurant was packed, regardless..........Happy to leave room for the awesome Seafood Chowders on offer everywhere in San Francisco.

If you must stay here, stay higher than the first floor. If not, you will hear EVERYTHING!! Hotel is very outdated, but stayed here to stay close to wharf. Bathroom handle was broken so no privacy. Overall our stay was just ok. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet.

Only 3 blocks away from Fisherman's Wharf. Then a block away from bike rentals. Location and reasonably priced hotel are the two reasons we got this. if your room is in the other building, you have to walk half a block after checking in the front desk.

We stayed here 4 days to do some sightseeing. Overall, it suited our needs. There are no frills and we were surprised that a small continental breakfast was not included in the rates, as it is in many other Holiday Inns, but I suspect the location has something to do with it. We could hear alarm clocks, showers and sometimes... More

I stayed at this hotel whilst attending a conference in San Francisco. My conference overlapped with another large conference so it was difficult to stay at many hotels as many of them were completely booked. I was "lucky" to get a room at the Holiday Inn Fisherman's Wharf for around $400 a night. The location of this hotel is great... More
