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.

No air conditioning, when asked about it we were given a oversized fan which didn't even fit in the windows. No continental breakfast, unless you call muffins, OJ, Coffee (no Decaf available) and need to bring back to the room, no place to eat in the 8X10 lobby. Room was very must smelling, and lights shut off on constantly. No... More

Please don't stay here, I have never written a review before but wanted to warn people. Room had a very unpleasant smell, very dark and gloomy interior. Furnishings very old and tatty and pieces of carpet put over existing carpet,trip risk. One of beds very uncomfortable and lumpy. . Found a 'crack pipe' in the closet, probably accounts for smell!...

This is a family motel on union street. Well located, lots of restaurants really close. You can reach union square or the harbour walking or taking the bus at the corner. They serve for breakfast coffee, tea, bananas and donuts or muffins. They are very help full, and Can order a taxi on your request. Rooms are clear and confortable.

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.
