A great hotel located in the Fishermans Wharf area of San Francisco. Prices are reasonable but what do you expect in the middle of the bay ! super friendly staff watch the free parking area 24/7 with complimentary hot beverages that the kids loved ! One of the only hotels with parking included . A truly awesome hotel and well... More

Good points - great sized clean rooms with desk, large TV, ceiling fan, very comfy beds, excellent water pressure in the shower with toiletries, free parking, the top point of this hotel/motel Is the location - 5 mins walk to the cable car and...

While this is just an average hotel, it's location on Fisherman's Wharf is perfect when visiting San Francisco! While parking is not free, parking is not cramped! WiFi worked great and showers were nice and hot. Is a little expensive, but so is everything in San Francisco. Beds were comfortable but room could've been a little cleaner. All staff that... More

The parking lot is a little iffy and there isn't always great parking right there. A lot of homeless people hang around the area too because of the traffic and tourists - but they're also very sweet people. Just talk to them! My sister and I headed here for a night before exploring the area. She needed a night away... More

To pay $350+ for a party of five (3 children) and only be given two queen beds is outrageous, even in an expensive city like SF. The place is like a cheap motel, seriously unpleasant. We decided not to go to the Sheraton or other slightly more expensive neighbouring hotels because it was a one night stay and we were... More

Was a little nervous about staying because some of the comments. But at was great room clean, comfortable bed and they were pet friendly. You are right down at fisherman wharf so you can leave car and adventure off on foot. Parking is include in the room.

Location great. Staff nice. Room ok... BUT we listened to the homeless & drunk people ouside both nights we stayed there. It was so loud that it sounded like they were fighting for turf in our room. Very strange. But again the location and staff were very nice.

This older, dated hotel gave me the right price at the right time. There are many other much nicer hotels in the same area. We were one block from Pier 41, two blocks from Pier 39 and about a 10 minute walk from the Crooked Street/Lombard. Anyway, with a family of five, didn't want to blow our budget on one... More

Friday morning we decided to go to SF. Called here and got a room for that night and the following one. In a tourist place that is virtually unheard of! Very reasonably priced, clean, nice staff, free parking, comfortable beds. Built around 1959 so rooms are a bid smaller but you will be out sight seeing not staying in the... More

On the plus side..... location is great for the tourist and the swanky hotels about are testament to that. The reception staff were super helpful and friendly. Parking was free - in a city where parking costs are astronomical. On the down side - the room looked like something from the 1960's. Small, dark. No fridge, No AC, no hairdryer,... More
