This is the second time I have stayed at this motel/hotel. While the rooms are older, they are clean and the office staff most amenable. It is within one block of all the action at Fisherman's Wharf and walking distance to Pier 39 and Ghiradelli Square. Parking is free too...another bonus. Beds were comfortable. The furniture and TV's could use... More

Let's face it...affordable hotels with free parking is pretty much non-existent in San Francisco, especially next to the wharf. So when I stumbled upon The Wharf Inn after searching other places online, I was so grateful. Make sure to book this place way in advance because it fills up quick. Here's why: The price is great. Our room was $250... More

A great place to stay. I would recommend this hotel. Little noisy in the street at night, but overall a great experience. Conveniently located to Fisherman's Wharf and all the public transportation. Parking was included in the coffee although not in the room was at the registration desk and available 24 hours a day.

We stayed at the Wharf Inn for 2 nights in April, 2014 in the "Penthouse Suite" which is a separate unit on the rooftop. The location is, without a doubt, it's best attribute. Everything we required was either within walking distance or easily accessible. The Inn's accommodations (ie. decor and furnishings) are most definitely dated, but would that deter us... More

Staff is highly accommodating. It's an awesome location just steps from the Fisherman's Wharf. Nice room, nice beds, good amenities, coffee in the lobby. Really nice stay and great deal from hotels.com. Will stay again. It's a motel so expect it to be as much. Free parking, awesome!!

We stayed at the Wharf Inn for 2 nights while visiting San Francisco on our way to Los Angeles. The Inn's location is right on Fisher Mans Wharf, just a short walk from Pier 39 with easy access to public transportation, cable car and tour stops. I felt very safe out walking the whole time we were there- as early... More

The Wharf Inn is located just short one and a half blocks from Fisherman's Wharf, the "F" Trolley Line is across the street and the Powell St. Cable Car Line is two blocks away. The hotel itself may be a little dated but the rooms are clean and nicely furnished. The front desk is manned 24 hours and have been... More

We had a great stay at the Wharf Inn. The Manager was kind enough to upgrade us to a slightly larger room which is great with 2 teen kids in tow. The room was clean and the beds comfy. Tho there was some street noise, we all seemed to be able to sleep in past 9:30 each day. It is... More
