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...

If you are looking for a decent room in a great location for a terrific price, then Nob Hill Motor Inn is for you. And if you have a car, parking is included. We kept our rental parked and took buses when we were in the city and still had the flexibility to take day trips on our own. The... More

Let me qualify in the beginning – this is good value for money if you have your own vehicle, because they provide free parking (means its included in the price). So this is a transit hotel of sorts. My husband and I stayed here for one night and found this place to be in a good location and reasonably priced... More

Really can't fault the location of this place. It's less than 1 minute's walk from Polk St for all the nightlife, 10 minutes walk from the tram stop and about a 15 minute walk to China Town or Lombard Street. Perfect. It's clean enough for most people (bar the real picky ones that probably shouldn't be staying in a budget... More

We stayed four nights at the Nobb Hill Motor Inn. We picked here because we had a hire car to park. The staff were friendly and very helpful with local knowledge. The room (218) was next to the elevator but we never heard it. Was not an issue. Our room was clean and serviced everyday by the friendly house maids.... More

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.
