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

On our arrival the Manager was so friendly. Put us in room 45 on the 4th floor away from the noise. The room is good with a nice bed and fridge and microwave. 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.

This hotel was perfect for what we were looking for. The staff was excellent! The rooms were simple but great! The location was perfect! The donuts in the morning was a nice touch. Mae was an excellent employee! She was very nice and helpful!

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.

The hotel rooms are clean and comfortable with plenty of space. Wi Fi was good. The hotel is located within walking distance of Fishermans Wharf. The car parking is good, and the area feels safe. You can walk up a steep hill which gets you to the cable car for an easy ride into Union Place.

The primary reason we selected this hotel was for its reasonable price and previously positive reviews. It had a good location and was what we expected, which was positive. The room was clean, nothing special, but nothing alarming. The location and parking were great allowing us to leave our vehicle and walk to the local restaurants and bars and see... More
