I was pretty disappointed with this hotel, basically because I didn't feel safe! No safety deposit box. Men smoking weed outside their room watching us leave ours. Even the owner locked herself in! Also found a needle sticking out of the bed!!

My room was quiet and clean, free parking is great! The parking lot is set in the middle with the rooms all around it and is well lit and feels safe. I had a two queen room and it had plenty of room. The guy in the main office was really friendly and the staff around the building always had... More

Pros: Free Parking and WiFi, very pleasant man on the front desk Cons: Noise, noise, noise. This hotel suffers from very loud road noise from the nearby arterial route. The hotel itself is so poorly built that there is no noise reduction between inside and outside. That coupled with the housekeeping staff's propensity to vacuum rooms at all hours of... More

We stayed five nights there in late November and quite satisfied. We reached San Francisco at a weekend and hotels were busy. This hotel however had lots of rooms available and we bargained to make a good deal. I still do not know why all motels around was full and this one was not. It has free parking that is... More

Close to Fishermans Wharf and the terminus of the cable car line. Plus, there is free parking, which in this city can cost you up to $50 a night. The Hotel, really a motel, serves it's purpose....a place to sleep. It's old, but comfortable and has decent Free wifi and cable TV. No restaurant, but who would want to eat... More

Great location, parking and wifi...rooms fairly clean but very dated. Old style box TV with cable box and universal remote that didn't work. Very friendly staff...and helpful. First room was right on the street, very noisy and had been smoked in...no problem with finding us another room. San Francisco is an expensive city...no matter where you go or stay...this is...

This hotel is a few blocks from the wharf, so easy to walk there. It is on Hwy 101 or Lombard ST, so easy to find. The place is old, but it was kept very clean. There was a loud noise off and on all night, that my husband finally figured out was the elevator. We were at the far... More

This was a good hotel for the price. Parking is hard to come by in SF and they had free parking. The room was no frills, but the location was excellent and the staff was extremely courteous and helpful telling us where to go and what transportation to take. This is about 3/4 of a mile to the wharfs and... More

Don't be put off by how this place looks from the outside. We stayed here 3 nights and could have stayed longer if we didn't have to move on. Our delightful stay started as soon as we walked into reception. The staff are just so lovely and helpful. Our room had plenty of space for a family of 4 to... More

Great location on Lombard Street ! You could easily walk to Fisherman's Wharf area in 15 mins . This is what we did until we found a bus stop less than 5 mins. away where we could access any part of San-Francisco . Just ask the front Desk staff . There are a few restaurants within walking distance for late... 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.
