.... they've definitely got the best location at Fisherman's Wharf that includes Free Parking for the price. Compare their rates and then call the Radi$$on across the street. They charge at least $50 for the privilege of parking your car. I always reserve one of the balcony rooms on the front of the hotel. It's fun to be there and... More

We have stayed in this hotel before with no problems. However was very noisy on the rooms facing the street. But it's very reasonable and the service is good. It is very convenient to Fisherman's Wharf so we would definitely stay again for next visit.

Location, Location Location!!!! Did I mention location? This was central to everything-even hop on buses right out front. We walked everywhere easily from the hotel. It is a small but exceptionally clean hotel for a great price. Two of the different people we met at check-in were so helpful in giving the inside scoop on places to eat etc. Also,... More

It was just what we need it, a clean room with easy access to everything. Our tour bus was just crossing the street and the Alcatraz tour was minutes away. The outside streets were noisy at night with a lot of homeless, but it was a safe hotel. The free parking is a plus, since parking is so expensive every... More

A three night stay. A great location with close access to fisherman's wharf and downtown via the trolley or street car. Over priced given the vintage of the hotel but access to amenities and the wharf sell the location. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Important to note that parking is included as typically many hotels do charge a premium... More

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!
