After searching hotels in San Francisco for several hours I came upon the Lombard Motor Inn. Most places wanted $50 per night to park my car on top of the $300 per night room rate. The Lombard Motor Inn had free parking and the room rate was half the price of bigger named locations. This place was perfect for our one-night stay. It was two blocks from the crooked Lombard Street and an easy five block walk to Ghiardellhi Square and Fisherman's Wharf. The front desk staff was friendly when we arrived. We arrived early at 2:00 and we were able to check-in early without any problems. The room was on the backside of the hotel which has no view and is about 4 feet away from the building behind it. But that is not a problem because we were there to visit the City and not look at it through a window. The 3rd floor hallway had an old building smell to it but that did not resonate into the room. One word of caution-the elevator door will open while the elevator it is still 6 inches above the floor. Be careful not to step out too soon. I would definitely stay at this location if ever in SF again. It was a great price, free parking, comfortable, and well located.
