I searched Trip Advisor before our trip to San Francisco and was not disappointed. The rooms were nice, the staff was nice, and the location was good. It's located across the street from a Mel's -which was a fun restaurant. It's also located next to tons of other food venues. It's not really close to the Pier's, so you'll probably have to pay for parking, but that didn't bother us. Overall, it was a fine experience.
