“Excellent Stay in San Francisco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Very friendly hotel staff. Large clean room that accommodated 2 adults and 3 kids. Our room was on the corner of Lombard and Buchanan and the the sound at night from the highway did not bother any of us. Free parking can be a very tight fit but it is manageable. Return to the hotel after check-out time and before people check-in and you should land a good spot! Overall excellent experience and would highly recommend for families looking to stay in SF. Walking distance to Ghiradelli Square and Fishermans Wharf area.

We stayed 6 nights, and had asked for a room at back, and got one. The staff at the desk were always friendly and very helpful. Rooms were always clean and made up. Great value! Would always stay there again.

This hotel does not look like much on the outside but was perfect on the inside. We were not expecting much based on the pics of the outside but the room itself was excellent. Bathroom was clean, carpets updated and the bed was Tempurpedic/memory foam- and so comfortable! This was a perfect location for us as we had a rental car and were able to drive to all the places we wanted to go. Parking is free (YES) although not for large SUV's or trucks. There was an underground garage but the spaces are tight so be prepared to have someone guide you into the spot if you have a larger vehicle. The neighborhood is not scary as some areas in San Fran can be, although I see no reason to walk around the area of the hotel. There is a liquor store right across the street for a late night in room cocktail. There is no lobby for socializing just a check in area. We will definitely stay here for our next trip to San Fran.

Stayed hear for a few nights. Great price for San Frans standards , lovely walk to all the waterfront attractions very large rooms and great staff to make your stay even more enjoyable free car parking which is great but you will not have to use your car whilst hear. Very handy if you are going to use the hop on hop of bus as it has a pick up point only a few hundred meters down the road.

Stayed 2 nights in june. Made the reservation 6 months before. Asked for a quiet room on the back, got a noisy room on the front facing Lombard Street. We could hear much traffic noise coming from the street. (but had some scenic view on the other hand). So if you are a light sleeper ask a room on the back. After all we had a good night sleep. Rooms are clean, basic and a bit dated but big enough and the beds are comfortable. Free parking in the basement is top ! No breakfast included, we had great breakfast at Mells ( 4 minutes walk).
Location is also good and close to the Pier (15 minutes walk). Next to the hotel there is a shop where we rented great bikes for 20 dollar a day. Hotels in SF are not cheap, this hotel had a nice price. Great value and helpful staff! My wife rated it very good. Would stay here next time.

Room Tip: rooms on Lombard Street are not free from traffic noise, ask a room at the back

We traveled to SF with our 11 months old to visit family and sightseeing. I was a little skeptical of the hotel at first because of the great price. But everything turned out great. Free parking, free pack n play style crib, and the room was roomy & clean enough for a 11 months old to crawl around. We were really SATISFIED with our stay!

The hotel is perfectly located to take advantage of all the sights, with the convenience of easy, safe parking. We left our car for all our in-town tourism and walked/bused wherever we wanted to go (SF is relatively easy to travel sans automobile).

The clean guest room was very large with an extraordinarily comfortable bed and a table area. The shower wasn't so nice due to its water-saving nature, a let down for Mr. Shower obsessed. The wifi was also painfully slow and unreliable from our room (your mileage will vary depending on how close you are to the wireless access point - our room was not so close) which could be frustrating. Best bet is to sit on the floor near your door to get it to work for any amount of time.

All the staff was very helpful, especially Tony who was most often on duty when we had questions. And all at a very reasonable price.

We would certainly stay here again.
