The location of this hotel is right in the heart of the wharf but at a great price. The maid service was good but not thorough. We stayed with kids and were able to walk everywhere. I would highly recommend this hotel for a budget minded traveler. Beware though that the building we stayed in is across the street from... More

A very last minute booking (on the day) through booking.com and we arrived early to the city. We had been staying in Novato and felt it was better to spend some time in the city. As Holiday Inns go this hotel is very modern .... Spotlessly clean ...brand new towels ...plenty toiletries ...a large and spacious room with two double... More

The hotel is close to everything... We could use good public transportation to get anywhere that wasn't walkable. Beds were very comfortable and pillow selection was great. There was no fridge in the room and our visitors were only allowed to park for 20 minutes ... after 20 minutes, they were charged the daily rate (no hourly rates are available).

The hotel is about what I'd expect from a Holiday Inn. The rooms are fine but no frills. They have Wi-Fi and outlets near the bed, which are nice touches in an old property. Beds are ok. The room always seemed chilly; I'm not sure how well the heating worked. The hotel sprawls across different buildings and has very long... More

This hotel is dated but it is clean and safe. The rooms like the hotel are not fancy but the beds and furniture are in good condition. The best thing about this hotel is it's location. Easy walking distance to all waterfront attractions. For cruisers it is a short $10 taxi ride to Pier 27. We found the staff to... More

Hotel well maintained, near the Fishermans wharf, with availability of transportation to the tourist sites. It is possible to enjoy trips on foot. with good restaurants in the neighborhood. The hotel is simple, but the price to be fair. Worth it.

The front desk staff are very friendly. Parking is convenient but you do pay for it. The general condition of the hotel is below Holiday Inn standards. The cleaning staff have no qualms about barging into the room in the morning. Make sure you lock your door. How many times do they need to get in when checkout is 2... More
