A decent hotel which is close enough to the waterfront to walk. Heavy traffic goes right by day and night, and the windows (USA quality!) don't keep out noise or heat. The staff were friendly (we received a few boxes from Amazon), but we would not stay here again, or visit SF anytime soon. So overrated, and full of cheesy... More

One of the several motels we stayed at during our road trip in California. First of all I have to praise the guy in the reception who gave us wonderful tips about the City and places we had to visit. He even gave us a map where he marked everything up for us. The room was a typical Motel room... More

Stayed here on a recent trip to San Francisco. Staff were all incredibly welcoming and friendly from arrival to departure (and again on a return stay later that week!) Rooms are clean, comfortable and exceeded all expectations for the price. It's well situated for exploring nearby Fisherman's Wharf or catching a bus a block away to visit downtown/connect to BART.... More

Stayed during my huge CA-NV-AR-UT trip. Wanted to stay just 2 nights. Anyway the price was high comparing to what I get. But one great adv - free parking (very rare case in SF - so you can deduct it from the rent payment comparing to other hotels). Rooms are just like in motel - huge windows, very noisy when... More

Came over ski week from San Diego for the Chinese New Year parade, and the place was very good. The staff was very kind and friendly. Gonna suggest to my friends who are visiting next month. Thought it was an amazing place and worth the price.

Always helpful and very friendly. Booked for this year, 2014 and will be trying to stay at the Redwood... More

The hotel was clean, in great location, had FREE parking and wi-fi and, most importantly, was very affordable considering how expensive San Francisco can be. The rooms were actually surprisingly spacious. We had to leave the hotel 2 nights earlier than we planned due to family emergency and the owners refunded our payment for those 2 nights. It was very... More

We stayed here over new years and were happy to get it. The staff was really nice, the bed was good, there was parking. The place was a little rough and on a noisy street. The location was good but once you learn how to get around, location is not that important.

Nothing special about this hotel other than it is reasonable priced, clean, and within walking distance to the Wharf, North Beach, and China Town. Since I had never been in San Fran before, I wanted to make sure that I found someplace where I felt safe without spending $$$$$... This place is it! Staff work very hard to give you... More

Travel plans sometimes change and most motels have a reasonable cancellation policy of 24 or 48 hours before check-in time. I tried to cancel my stay at the Redwood Inn around 9 or 9:30 am two days ahead of time (52 hours before my check-in), but they refused to wave the first night's charge. To be fair, I did go... More
