Good location, nice friendly staff, and the rooms where clean, tidy, and well kept. When looking for a hotel in San Fran, we mainly wanted safe, cheap, and not to far from things to do. It is close to fisherman's wharf which has numerous restaurants and attractions and also has good transport links. We were even happy walking to the... More

Found the redwood through trip adviser. Still here for 2 more nights. Room comfortable, dog nuts awesome. Very friendly staff and housekeeping excellent. Towels so soft. Turn left out of hotel and short walk to crooked street and 15 mins to fisherman's wharf. We are in love with San Francisco. Will be back.

Well maintained rooms and effective cleaning staff - friendly, very welcoming and efficient front-office staff. Manager in-training, Paul went out-of-his way to insure our stay was a good one. We would return!

We were happy with the room, the price was good and the people in the office were extremely friendly and helpful. The location was excellent. Across the street from a tour bus stop and around the corner from the public bus stop. Also walking distance to the Fisherman's Wharf if you are capable of walking. There were several restaurants nearby... More

Bathroom is very small but it's clean so all good. Hotel is close to some restaurants and right across the road from a bus stop. This is... More

Finding lodging at decent price on thje 4th of July weekend is never going to be easy but we ended up staying at this motel. It was relatively expensive, but taking into account its convenient location and the date it was pretty ok. Nothing specially good, but nothing especielly bad either.

We found prices high in the San Francisco area so were quite pleased to find the Redwood Inn in a prime location on Lombard Street (just a few steep blocks from the crookedest street) with parking included. We left our car there and walked to Fisherman's Wharf and took the bus/train to the ball game. The room was very basic... More

This hotel is great value for San Francisco. Its located within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf and has parking included in the price so were were able to park our vehicle and explore the city on foot/public transit. The rooms were clean and comfortable plus there was free wifi.
