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

We are staying at The Wharf Inn on Beach at Mason. We get great location and "free" parking. But, no AC, cable TV comes and goes--at times completely blanking out, windows that open onto noisy streets but do provide some air circulation (except the screens are torn away from the frames), no tub, a small shower stall with a shower...

I have stayed at the Wharf in a number of times over the years in visits to San Francisco. The facilities are very basic, but it is a great location adjacent to restaurants, Boudin Bakery and Fishermans wharf. If you are like me and spend little time in the rooms and want to be in the middle of the action... More

Pros: Perfectly located at the fishermen's wharf, free parking, looks clean, friendly staff (upgraded/changed our one-bed room to a twin bed room) Cons: No AC (but it's rarely that hot in SF anyways says the receptionist), smells closed and confined, even though the parking is free the place is expensive compare to better hotels, it's quite noisy if you're by...

room was nice, they moved things around so we could stay 2 nights in the same room. Worth the money to be right on the wharf and have a clean, nice room. Staff was nice and they were very helpful when asking where things were or anything else we needed.

Booked into the penthouse for one night, location for walking was ideal. Close to shopping & eating. We were disappointed with our accommodation it was very tired & out dated, the lift only goes to the third floor leaving you with a flight of stairs to climb. I think it is overpriced for what it is, veranda a little small... More

Okay...so I don't want to give this motel/hotel (whatever it is) an awful rating, but my honest opinion about my experience spent here is negative. Upon booking this hotel, the website told us that pets WERE allowed, there was an A/C, FREE coffee in the room, and a LARGE selection of channels on the television. I can live with these... More

Well I learned my lesson to ask if the hotel has a/c! None here. You do get what you pay for. I moved to the Marriott and paid a little more for air conditioning. The staff at Wharf Inn get 5 stars though. Very helpful and understanding when I decided to not stay. They are a credit to the hotel.
