I don't know where the positive reviewers stayed but I thought this place was terrible. Everything was old and outdated and musty smelling. All the furniture looks like it came from a yard sale. The desk clerk was accommodating to the extent he could be. The location is good and the bed was clean and comfortable. There was no air... More

The staff is very nice and friendly. Room is clean, and in a safe neighborhood. We have 2 kids and total of 4, and kids had a good slept. Closed to bus, Chinatown, pier, etc. Free continental breakfast in the morning helps. Reasonable price in the city.

Just stayed one night, but would have been happy to stay longer if we had the time. Front desk was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast simple, but something to start the day. Parking was tight, but they worked it out. Would stay there again if traveling to San Francisco.

We wanted to stay flexible, so we booked this place on the day we arrived in San Francisco. It is family run (a plus), the owners are super nice, the room was cleaned daily, parking was free and the hotel was central. It cost more than any hotel room we stayed in since starting our trip in August 2014, but... More

I brought my family here over the Memorial Day Weekend and I knew that I would have to dish out some dough, but this place is not worth what I paid. The clerk was extremely nice and helpful, location was good close to the trolley line, bus and not that far of a walk to China town or the Pier.... More

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

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.
