Needs tearing down and rebuilt. A very unusual location handy to the beach and easy drive to downtown. The restaurant was a greasy spoon (I mean greasy) really needs a good clean. It was like going back to the 50s.

This is a nice little inn in San Francisco. It is away from all the city hustle and bustle and has a partial ocean view. It is walking distance to the beach which is nice for a morning/evening stroll. The hotel itself is quiet, we have stayed here twice now. First time was the corner suite, second time the end...

When I read a newspaper review of this place, I knew that I had to go. It was on the shore of San Francisco, yet still accessible to the city, and the price was right. I found the hotel true to the newspaper review, old fashioned but charming. My room overlooked the pine trees of Sutter Park and the Golden... More

What a fantastic jewel of a hotel! We decided to relax at the beginning of the trip, and there is no better place. Land's End, Sutro Baths, Sutro Park, and the Pacific Ocean all right outside the door. We booked the Sea View Suite (bridal suite), on the top floor. The windows look out over the Ocean on two sides.... More

A lovely motel away from the hubbub of downtown -- and with views of the Pacific. Hard to beat the price. Nothing fancy, but spacious and just right for our needs. The attached restaurant serves breakfast and lunch. We ate sumptuous breakfasts there two days.

Great location! This hotel is across from the beach. Our view room, that cost more, had a small view of the ocean. The room was huge, but the furniture was very old. If you like showers, this room had a huge, remodeled shower! The commode and shower were in one area, and the sink was outside of it. That's very... More

You can't beat the location or the price at this "vintage" feeling motel. Although a bit shabby and dated, the rooms are clean and spacious. You can't beat the view and the location at Land's End. Just a short walk to the most spectacular views and hiking paths in San Francisco. Also the added convenience of free parking and a... More

This simple old motel is just across the street from Sutro Heights and the Cliff House. The accommodations are not luxurious but they are clean and modern. The cafe is a destination for neighborhood brunchers on the weekend and is worth a detour just for the food. There is not much out in this neighborhood but the views and the... More

I stayed here in October 2014 for 3 nights and had a 3rd floor room. I could see the ocean a bit looking out the window. Decor is dated - but may actually be an attempt at retro. Looked like the 60's. It was clean and pretty quiet. There is a courtyard that is nice to sit in on the... More
