Generally I was very pleased with this hotel. The room was nice and clean and the bathroom was fine too. Also, the staff were very friendly and helpful too. My only (minor) gripes were that it felt like a motel (in that the corridor was open air) and the rooms do not have their own safes. All in all I... More

Even if you hate this hotel you can't argue with free parking location and it was clean Honestly when we checked in we were very disappointed and actually got on line to see if we could book somewhere else - but since it was day 1 of the World Series this was going to have to work. After we calmed... More

Awesome location, centrally located on the wharf. Clean, nice, great staff. Quiet rooms. Walking distance to all attraction. Felt safe and secure, polite staff that were helpful. Would come back. It's a bit pricey but worth the cost.

Everything you want to do at the Wharf or in San Fran is at your fingertips from this hotel. It's only a hundred yards from fisherman's wharf. Just a 5 minute walk to pier 39 or the Hyde St cable car stop. 15 minutes to crooked Lombard St. Incredible location in the center of the wharves. The rooms are decent.... More

Great place to experience Fishermans Wharf from. Nothing flash but everything you need. Complimentary wifi with good signal strength - fast check in and out and very friendly and helpful reception staff. Probably around £25 a night over priced but that's the only negative and I'm being very picky!

Spacious room, but dirty, worn couch and chairs prevented us from sitting on them. King sized bed had rubber mattress cover causing excessive heat, that along with the traffic noise all night (car stereos, car alarms, the garbage truck AND the street sweeper all in the same night!) and the paper thin walls allowing us to hear entire conversations from...

It looks much better in the pictures. It has not been updated in many years. Location was great, close to the wharf, but for the price, we were very disappointed. The couch was threadbare. Bed spreads, carpet were pretty dingy looking. Very noisy in evening from the street people. Nice for walking to the shops on the wharf. Everyone seemed... More

The pictures on the website do not portray this hotel. Very outdated facility and rooms. Our shower curtain was from the 1960's and contained two holes. Our friends had a sofa in their room and it was torn on the arm rests. Very noisy at night because of the street people and early morning because of truck deliveries to the... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of attending the 34th America Cup final races during SEPTEMBER 2013, in San Francisco. During our visit to the city by the bay we stayed at the Wharf Inn. The Wharf Inn has become our lodging of choice over the years when visiting San Francisco because of its prime location 1 1/2 blocks... More

I found this place more of a motel than a hotel was expecting it not to be 5 star so was ready for rooms to be outdated which they were. Rooms are of decent size had plenty of room we also requested our 2 rooms to be side by side and they gave us interconnecting which was perfect. Location nice... More
