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 Hotel is very outdated, but stayed here to stay close to wharf.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

This is a well located hotel, a short walk to Fishermans Wharf. The rooms are good and the prices are in line with the city. Generally expensive but reasonable so. Double check rates and if you can adjust your travel plans then you may find a deal. SF gets so many conventions. The hotels adjust their pricing accordingly. The prices... More
