My wife and I lived in San Francisco on top of Russian Hill for nearly 8 years and moved to Portland in 1985. We love to visit and really enjoyed our stay here. Free off-street parking is a Huge plus for San Francisco. Morning coffee and pastries were a welcome wake-up. Very fair pricing and good value. Easy access to... More

My girlfriend and I absolutely loved this place! It's smack dab in the middle of everything. Most things are within a 30 minute walk! And if it isn't 30 minutes walking, it's 30 minutes via the bus system. (which I highly recommend you learn to use if you come here to visit!) The staff here is so helpful and incredibly... More

We've been to a lot of hotels in San Francisco and this is the best value for the money! Parking in San Francisco can cost $25.00 a DAY so the free parking is very cool. Our room looked as though it had recently been updated so we were really happy about that. We even had a little kitchenette which was... More

Not expensive and it shows. This is a basic motel which offers basic accommodation for guests in San Francisco. I would hate to think I spend a lot of money to stay here but it is cheap and cheerful in a good location. The breakfast is minimalistic - go to Mama's on Stockton street instead. Overall, an okay stay.

This was one of 3 hotels/motels I stayed at on a recent trip to California. It was chosen by my sister who wanted free parking and that was her main 'want'. We arrived in the middle of a cold spell and were there for New Yearand out room heating was broken. An electric heater (with 2 out of 4 feet... More

The Pacific Heights Inn is definitely not a new motel, but if you are looking for a reasonable, clean place to stay in San Francisco, with free parking, close to major public transportation routes then this is an excellent choice! The staff were excellent, very helpful & always ready with a suggestion on where to go, what to see &... More

Stayed for 6 nights at 114$ per night. Two other friends of mine booked similar rooms in the same hotel. Not all rooms had a microwave. For breakfast, they had sponge cakes (of good kind, blueberry), juices and milk. The rooms were generally small but clean. The bathroom was clean and was as big as we expected after seeing the...

This hotel could use some updating, true; however, I recently spent three nights there and enjoyed it. The staff was very accommodating even though I arrived after midnight. I will agree the bathroom is a bit tight, but, the room was clean, which is big for me. My brother stayed with me part of the time, and we had no... More

We stayed at Pacific Heights Inn after the World Series Game and paid almost $150 for the night, the room was small, dark, old and smelly. The floor was uneven like we may fall through it due to dry rot. The blind in the bathroom is tied to the towel rack 3 feet away to keep the blind up.... kinda... More

This is a tired old motel. There is no place to relax. The rooms are not inviting, and the office has no space. Breakfast is minimal. It's OK if you are only going to sleep there, but I would look elsewhere.

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
