Needed a place to stay for a night in San Francisco. All the local hotels wanted between 300-400 per night and charged for parking. We saw the Wharf Inn and decided to walk in and see what they had. One room left and it was 199 and it included parking until 3 pm, the next day. Sold! While it was... More

We had read the reviews before arriving at the hotel, but decided to go ahead anyway. We requested a quiet room at the rear of the hotel, which was granted. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable. The location was unbeatable. Dated decor wasn't an issue for us. But unfortunately lack of ventilation was. Our day temperature ranged from... More

This Inn was the only place I could find in the San Francisco (Fisherman's Wharf) area that included parking. The Inn is a bit run down and old looking. The rooms are a bit old dated as well. We had a room with a balcony which looked out Mason Street and across the street was a 7-eleven. I thought it... More

As someone who stays at the Wharf inn twice a year for the last 7 years, here is some advice. Always call the hotel and ask what you are booking. This should apply to any hotel. Not just this one. We try to get a different room each time we stay. Each one is slightly different. We asked Steve at... More

My partner and I had already checked out of the Wharf Inn and experienced a problem that required a change in clothing. The desk clerk was most accommodating and helpful. I would definitely stay there again.

Loud, felt dirty. More like a low end university hall. What a ripoff, avoid at all costs. We heard traffic, neighbouring rooms partying, TVs and snoring. Awful service and carpets not changed since Reagan was in office. Really consider staying elsewhere.

My small family (2 adults / 1 child) last minuted needed 2 nights in the Fisherman's Wharf area of San Francisco. An hour of online searching only turned up hotels that were $375 to $500 / night - which didn't include parking - which added another $40 (lowest) to $80 (highest) to the bill. Then I came across the Wharf... More
