“Enjoyable stay in San Francisco”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

The Chelsea Motor Inn is good value and in a great location. I was recommended to use it by my brother and sister-in-law, particularly for its free parking. This was the first stop on a wonderful California road trip, and was a great start to the journey

We did not expect a lot when we booked our stay here. Free wi-fi, free parking, prime location, easy access to restaurants, grocery shops and bus facilities, very clean rooms and good service. As another person has mentioned the decor is a little outdated, but it was not an issue at all. Recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay comfortably on a budget.

We stayed here three nights while in San Francisco. The hotel is well situated, rooms are large and clean and the parking is onsite. We had a room facing the back of the hotel, so noise wasn't an issue. Lots of restaurants nearby. Bus stops close by. WiFi reception was sketchy at times. All in all, a good place to stay for the price. Staff was very helpful.

Just leaving here today after 3 night stay. Rooms very large and very clean. Decor little dated but who stays here and sits in the room all day?? Local to all amenities and plenty of bars and restaurants close by. All staff really helpful but special mention to Mohammed who helped us book trips and shuttle to airport. Would def recommend to others.

stayed here for 2 nights in april, rooms are ok i found them very dark and the noise is so bad we had a room over the main road ' lombard street ' and asked if we could move to another room but was told no. the windows are so thin and the traffic is crazy its the main road to the golden gate bridge. the motel is out a little from the main buzz, but the streets around are nice with little coffee shops etc tho there are a lot of homeless/drunk people around. take a 10 minute walk down towards the bridge and you get the best views around tho for the 2 days we where there the fog covered the golden gate the whole time and if you drive over it mae sure you pay the toll where you pay is another thing other wise you will be hit with a nice fine from your car hire company.
all in all the motel is fine for price apart from not sleeping with the noise but who needs sleep !!!

Room Tip: get a room to the side streets or back of motel

Found out about this place from a co-worker who had been staying here regularly. Comfortable nicely appointed rooms. Nothing fancy, but free WiFi AND parking. A lot of places charge anywhere from $15 - $35 / night for parking. Lombard Street can get rather noisy and the one elevator is really slow. Plenty of restaurants and bars in the adjacent Cow Hollow and Marina District neighborhoods. If you are looking for no frills, clean, safe, and convenient accommodations for under $200/night (often under $150 depending on season, advance booking). A bargain in a city full of expensive hotels with plenty of add on charges.

Room Tip: Avoid a room that is on Lombard, rooms overlooking the side streets are quieter. Good selection for...
