This is a no frills hotel at Fisherman's Wharf, but clean, spacious room with a balcony to check out what's going on outside! And view of the Bay! The front desk staff were wonderful and even let me park my car in their lot even tho' not checking in until 3:00 pm! Thank you. Value for price was excellent! Totally... More

The manager (Jay) doesn't have any compassion where it concerns cancellation. There is no excuse for this. We have stayed here before and it was never that good but the location was great so we wanted to rebook for a one-night stay. When I booked the room, it was a "one-day" sale...so I entered the future date I wanted; my... More

I booked only one night's accommodation here after a cruise as were were flying out next day at dawn. I expected the worse as it was very reasonably priced for peak season at Fisherman's Wharf. True, the decor was dated and it was an older style hotel but we were upgraded to a mini-suite at no extra charge, the service... More

I stayed here for one night over labor day weekend and paid a rate of 205.00 from the hotel website. After scowering the internet for a hotel less than 300.00 a night I was suprised to see the rate was so low for a fishermans wharf hotel when the Radisson, which I have also stayed at, was 400.00 a night....

The hotel room had no air conditioning! Old fashioned glass slat windows were wide open when we got there, all I could think of were wharf rats getting in! The room was pretty clean, did not smell but the mattress pad was stained with what looked like urine, so yuk. The parking was free, that is a bonus in San... More

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
