We stayed here for 3 nights in early August, 2009. This was a great place. It's an old motor lodge so cars are parked directly below the rooms. It's fairly no frills but the price reflects that. Prices are reasonable. The staff was always courteous and friendly. There's a cute little pool in the center with a few big palm trees nearby with hammocks attached. A little oasis from the city. The pool was cold mind you, but young kids never seem to mind.
The rooms were small, but very cozy. They are painted in bright, cheery colors. We had a one bedroom that barely fit the bed while our kids slept in the living room. The bed was comfortable, not too soft, not too hard. That was a welcome relief.
Breakfast was included. It was continental and consisted of bagels, coffee, pastries, and oatmeal. In the afternoon, they served warm cookies and milk for the kids (between 3-5pm).
Location was great, just 1 block from Lombard Street in the Marina/Cow Hollow district. We often kept the car parked at the hotel and used the buses to get around which were pretty convenient. There are many restaurants right near the hotel (Thai, Vegetarian, Diner, etc.).
Overall, I would recommend this hotel. It's a funky little place that's comfortable, family friendly with a great location and a moderate price. What more can you ask?
