My husband won't agree, but I've never understood paying a lot more for a fancy place when it's the AREA you are visiting. This is the perfect example of my thoughts: great cheap little motel, free parking (Rare in SF) and helpful front desk staff for the price. Very close to chinatown, great restaurants and bars and not far from... More

Best price in the area and includes parking---which most hotels do not. Friendly, helpful front desk staff and excellent housekeeping staff. Convenient to transit system and close to many restaurants. Also within walking distance of major attractions. Very happy with our stay.

If you're looking to save money this is a good option. Pros: -Parking included -Reasonably safe area -Near major tourist attractions (6-7 Blocks) -Older building, but it is fairly well maintained -Breakfast (Basic but it works) Cons: -WiFi bandwidth is poor, streaming video is a problem. -No views, most rooms look onto the courtyard.

Nothing special except they have free parking and that bumped them from 3stars to 4. Very hard to find a hotel around Nob Hill with free parking. Hotel was walking distance to many restaurants and cable car near by. This motel is everything I expected. Rooms: could use an upgrade but for the price I paid (under 100 a night),... More

Pros - Good location on bus routes, 2 blocks to Hyde/Powell cable car, 5 blocks to California line. Walking distance to many restaurants, bars, shops and just 1 block to Walgreen's. King room was comfortable and spacious, but ready for update reno. Room was facing street, and somewhat noisy early in the morning with trucks etc. Staff were all very... More

Booked this after reading comments on here, got a good deal with ebookers and seemed very reasonable compared to other hotels in the SF area. Drove to the hotel but only stayed a few hours as this was our last stop and we were dropping the car off the same day but ample parking. The room was clean but very... More

We booked this hotel knowing nothing about it... we were thrilled once we got in our room with... three queen size beds (it was only two of us!). Front desk clerk was very welcoming and smiling, we immediately felt we'd love this place. Parking was free! Wifi was free (it did fluctuate a lot but that seems to be common... More

We booked this on a last minute trip to SF so I was not expecting a steal. However, after hours of research, this hotel seemed like the best value for our money. It is in nobb hill, close to russian hill. The area is great; just 2 minutes away is a busy street with a ton of bars and restaurants;... More

My best friend and I gave ourselves a Christmas present this year and spend the holidays inCalifornia, spending three nights at the Nob Hill Motor Inn before heading south. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was spacious and clean, with comfortable beds. Parking spaces were tight, but manageable -- and FREE. Continental breakfast is just what it says. Saw several...

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
