We booked the deluxe family suite for my family of five. It gave us plenty of room and was reasonably priced as we booked well in advance. It was comfortable and clean although some of the decor was a little tired. Another advantage of staying here was we could park our car for free and we it was safe while... More

The staff here at the reception desk are extremely friendly and very helpful and give a very nice welcome to the guests, It in a really central location and right across the road you pick and pick up the bus for the number 10 which brings you to the east of the city or just walk down Polk Street and...

Reasonable rates, cold A/C in the room, friendly staff, clean rooms and on site free garage parking, fridge and microwave and free wifi. Great location and not to far of a walk to pier 39. Will definitely stay here again.

I booked a reservation for our family to stay here during our vacation. I booked the room 10 days ahead of time (through bookit.com). When we arrived at the hotel we were told that they were "overbooked" and that they had to send us to their "sister" hotel 6 blocks away. I complained but they told me that there was... More

The location is excellent in what seems to be a very safe area. There are a multitude of very good restaurants on Polk which runs adjacent to the motor inn. Another plus point is on-site parking at no extra cost. For us this was a big selling point. The down sides are that the motor inn is very dated and... More

Then room was ok, could probably do with a refresh, but the room was clean. Great location, and good to have free car parking. Whilst the room was quite basic, the room rate was high, however it was inline with San fransisco.prices. A good and seemed safe location. The reception staff were very helpful, and their local knowledge really helped.... More

We decided to book 3 nights at this hotel. Because the good position - within walking distance from Union Square and Market Street, the parking place and the price. We were disappointed on what we found there. Old and small room, big enough for only one bed. The smell in the room was awful, everytime we returned we were hit... More

While not new and showing some signs of aging, my family loved the place. Great location to walk to local business plus walk to the Piers if you are ready for the hills. The Hotel has free parking, very tight spaces but I was able to get a mini van in, which helps a lot if you would rather drive... More

I arrived after booking through Booking.com to find there were no rooms available, they moved us to their sister hotel the Inn on Broadway which would be described as dubious at best. Room had a strange pungent smell and what looked liked blood on the carpet. I would avoid the Nob Hill Hotels if you want a fair standard of... More

We spent two nights in this inn before flying back home. Receptionist did all he could to meet our request: a spacious room on the top floor, far from the street. Beds were excellent, room was clean, WIFI worked fine. Continental breakfast is miserable but we knew it having stayed here before. This is not the main point for us.... More
