My husband and I stayed 3 nights in early November. The motel is in a quiet area that is convenient for walking to many attractions in the city. It's about a 30 minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf. Good exercise and a lovely walk with lots of beautiful homes to see along the way. We had a king room right next... More

Perfect location for our family of 5 to explore San Fransisco for the first time. Nice walking distance both downtown and to Fishermans Warf. Continental breakfast was not much to have, too sweet for us but room had refrigerator so we could buy some real food.

I booked a room here for a couple nights. My son ended up getting the flu the day that I was supposed to go. I call them to see if they would work something out with me and they were totally unwilling to refund or give me credits for another time.

Great value, very clean accomodation with extremely knowledgeable and helpful staff. Rooms are basic with a very soft bed, which is not good for sufferers of back pain! There is a fair amount of ambient noise from other rooms and the parking lot but it is gets quiter at a goodtime for sleep. Would recommend on the basis of great... More

Chosen because we had a car more than the location, we were delighted to find that the middle Polk was a vibrant area with excellent restaurants and an easy journey to other areas of San Francisco. However the Nob Hill Motor Inn has an internal courtyard that really helps shielding the motel from much of the noise of the wider... More

Very easy walk to many locations. Roberto at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. Rooms were very clean and our stay was very enjoyable. Amazing for the price in this part of town. Being could be updated but you get lots of pillows. Charming1950 feeling architecture.

Stayed one night in 102 which was convenient next to at silent elevator. Initially room smelled extreme of detergents. Fine clean bed and bathroom with a noisy vent. Being so silly to bring a car into SF this Motor Inn is a fine solution for a place to sleep, but don't expect anything of the breakfast.

The motel is old-fashioned and could do with an update, but it is also clean, quiet and in a great location. So, I would prefer it stay a little old looking and remain affordable. Everyone at the motel was young and very helpful and enthusiastic. They went pout of their way to ensure that we were comfortable and having a... 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.
