It's in a great location, but be aware that this means lots of tourists and noise. But you're a tourist if you're staying here, right? And the free parking is a great deal since most hotels around here will charge you $50 per night. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. And then there's that odd little "bonus"... More

Every time we stay near Fishermen's Wharf we stay here. Clean ,free parking ,nice bed within 1 Block of Fisherman's Wharf. Very nice night shift front desk lady from Massachusetts. The room was quiet and clean. If you try to check in before 3pm and park the car, you will be charged $25 for Early Parking.

First the positives: free parking, which in San Francisco is very rare, location is right in Fisherman's Wharf so at the heart of all the tourist attractions, price is very good for this location. Now the negatives: NOISE - the street facing rooms (we were in 316) have NO sound proofing or double glazing so you hear everything that goes... More

It is basically a 3-story '60s motel. Although the location was fantastic for spending time in Fisherman's Wharf, it was just a place to sleep. The room was very small for a king bed, and the furnishings were basic. On the plus, it was very clean. The walls were very"thin", which is only a plus if you are a detective... More

This is an OK place to stay. It is like a motel six with much higher prices. We stayed here because of location only! They have free parking & in SF that is big~ BUT be warned! If you book with a third party they do charge $25.00 So make sure you call them directly.(415)673-7411

For the price it was a great value! Surpassed our expectations. Rooms are very clean, and bigger than what we expected them to be. Location is perfect if you want to walk around and explore the area.

This is a old motel and has been used heavy with not a lot of upkeep. Beds were clean and the room was ok. You may not want to stay here for more than one night. We stayed because of the location and price. Parking around here can be $50.00 per day so that made this old hotel a good... More

For $130 per night this was a great deal. There was plenty of free parking. The hotel is half a block from the ward. Room was clean and quiet. There are no frills, but I didn't expect a lot for this low price. The streetcar station is right behind the property. I will stay here again.

Literally right next to the wharf, hotel is a little dated but there's free wifi and car parking. Unfortunately the coffee is located In the reception area and not in the room. The bed is ridiculously comfortable we almost didn't want to get out of it.
