We stayed here for one night while waiting for a cruise ship. Not your Hilton style of hotel but it is worth the cost. The staff was very accommodating and it was a quiet setting.The cost was about half the price of other hotels in the area. Free parking if you had a car.

FREE PARKING! Plus, it's about half the price of surrounding hotels. There was no continental breakfast, but my husband and I just got a jar of peanut butter and a loaf of bread and that sufficed (cause everything else is SO espensive)!. The staff was very helpful and went out of their way to make sure they could point us... More

Loved the Wharf Inn......close to everything and anything. Staff was fantastic in waiting for my late luggage to arrive. Room was clean and tidy. It was my first time in San Fran and The Wharf inn was exactly where I expected it to be, at a great price. Nothing fancy, but there was too much to do to worry about... More

Walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf, but very dated and run down. Noisy, safe didn't work, bathroom was terrible, just not a nice place. Cable kept cutting out, but didn't really need the TV because we had our own private version of Cops by just opening our window to the seedy street outside. Staff was nice though. Cost $250/night as well,... More

Went on a girls trip to San Francisco and booked in to the Wharf Inn. There were 8 of us in total and we all had more than enough room between two rooms. The beds were very comfy, the rooms were very clean and spacious. The room was updated with newer furniture. The room even had a safe :) It... More

The plusses are the location if you want to stay in Fishermans Wharf (which we wouldn't again) and the free parking.The staff are good and everything was clean but we really didn't like the hotel. If you're looking for a budget hotel with free parking then this place could be for you but if you're looking for a wee bit... More

We stayed here 31st March to 4th April. I kept checking reviews before I went. Yes the rooms are dated but who cares? There's so much to do in the wonderful city of San Francisco that you'd be a fool to want to spend too much time in the hotel. However we found the rooms to be clean, the beds... More
