Great location and very competitively priced vs other SF hotels. It's old but the hotel info is upfront about that so we didn't have a problem. Very clean and comfortable. But noisy at night due to the open style of the building and the homeless people living nearby. Two issues: 1. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room. They do... More

Right across the street from Fisherman's Wharf, 10 minute (or less) walk to Alcatraz tour pier, 10 minutes the other way to Ghiradelli square (art galleries along the way), block away from IHOP, block away from Trader Joe's grocery store, 1 1/2 block away from Safeway Grocery store, free parking which other more expensive adjacent hotels charge $50 or more...

Hello, thank you for staying with The Wharf Inn. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We agree the street side can be a bit noisy, so a quite room away from the street is recommended if you are a light sleeper. We hope to see you on your next trip to San Francisco. More

The Wharf Inn is conveniently located in the heart of the Fisherman’s Wharf tourist district. I attended a conference and the entire city was booked, so I paid a small fortune to stay here and then took the F train to the convention center – the station is right outside the front door of the Inn. At night, I got... More

The rooms are big,but we had to use it for 4 people so it was kind of small. It was clean,worth the price and located just 2min from the boardwalk at the piers. 7eleven just across the street was very good ;

The Wharf Inn was in the perfect location. About a 3 minute walk to pier 39 and down the street from the cable car stop. The rooms are dated but are perfect for a break in San Fran, clean and comfortable for a great price! Front desk always extremely helpful. Thank you.

The Wharf Inn was a nice place to stay. After reading some of the negative review I was afraid that it would not be the best place to stay.I found the place to be comfortable. The front desk staff was very accommodating. We asked for a room towards the back and on the second floor. Wished you had a coffee... More

We stayed at the Wharf Inn for the convenience of being close to Pier 33 for the Alcatraz tour. The Wharf Inn was the least expensive option to stay at the Fisherman's Wharf and the free parking was definitely a plus. We also were able to leave our car in the lot after we checked out while on the Alcatraz... More

We stayed here for five nights while vacationing in San Francisco. The location, price and staff were excellent! The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. The room we stayed in definitely could use a few updates, but the bed was comfortable and the accommodations were adequate. The neighborhood is noisy, so it is best to request a room away from...

We stayed one night at Wharf Inn and for the cost, the room was clean and comfortable. The front desk staff welcomed us like we were old friends and they were genuinely interested in our travels and our stay in San Francisco. Bottled water, granola bar and Ghirardelli chocolates were in our room as welcome gifts which turned out to... More
