Location! Location! Location! This place is right smack dab at the edge of Fisherman's Wharf. The smell of Chowder & Sourdough bread can be had if you catch the wind just right. Well, and if you aren't overwhelmed by the smell of diesel from the multitude of tour buses that park right across the street ALL DAY. I want to... More

This hotel was the perfect stop off on a long drive for me and my wife. The front desk was really welcoming and on arrival to my room I thought 'oh hell, this is a bit grim' but on closer inspection, it was clean, basic and just right for getting my head down before a long drive. It's not romantic... More

What a great location & with free parking- the hotel was clean & staff friendly. Put only concern with this hotel was the noise from the room above us, the hotel is old and insulation is almost non existent. After a sleepless first night we asked to move to the floor above- the staff were helpful & moved us within... More

Good affordable option in Central SF. Rooms standard, but with comfy beds. Easy to walk to all the sea front attractions on the different piers. Car parking is included which is a bonus. Staff on front desk friendly and helpful.

My fiance and I stayed here January 30 and 31 for a short vacation. While this property is older and could use some updating, we found the rooms clean, the office staff helpful and the location second to none in Fishermans Wharf. Pier 39 is a block away and the cable car station is about 4 blocks away. Their is... More

An excellent hotel for the price. Free parking in the heart of the waterfront makes it a great find. Customer service is good, it is clean, and beds were not uncomfortable. The rooms are small, but manageable. For someone on a budget like us it is great. We will come back.
