“Clean and comfortable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Used this hotel as a base for San Francisco. Rooms were clean and comfortable, wall safe in room, free WiFi, toiletries and hot american breakfast. The staff were friendly and very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas.Easy to get to local attractions which are at the most about 15 mins walk away. There are a few draw backs in that the breakfast room gets very busy as the hotel is used by coach tours and it is difficult to get a table to eat whilst they wait for their coach. The swimming pool is located in their sister hotel about two blocks away as is the guest laundry for which they charge $2 each for washing and drying. Car parking is $45 per night plus taxes.

Just recently stayed here for a few nights, it was great being so close to Fisherman's Wharf. When you compare it to the Hyatt across the road it's half the price and how much time should you really spend in your hotel room anyway looking out the window, eating room service or watching TV when there's an entire world out there waiting ti be explored. So for good value for money check this place out.

We stayed in a King Jr. Suite. Very well appointed, clean, and great bed. There is frig for storing goodies, etc. The hotel serves a very generous breakfast that can hold you till dinner. The location is superb, just 2 blocks from the Wharf. As others have mentioned the parking is a bit steep. You can park at nearby lots for less.

San Fran city hotel can be expensive, so this is no different. I booked a 2 double bed suite expecting a separate room and small living, but it's just a larger room. At least the room is clean and comfortable with choice of pillows. AC in my first room was noisy -- and was told the coil was iced over -- so was transferred to another room. Breakfast was exactly the same as the Holiday Inn Express I came from in Monterey -- I expect the food to be better since the rate is about 3 times as much as Monterey. Overall it's comfortable, but I won't be coming back. The price you pay for the proximity to the wharf isn't worth the money. And the need to valet just made it a poor value for money hotel. Better stay a little further where rate is lower and parking is free.

Hello steven t,

Thank you so much for staying with us as well as posting your thoughts on the stay. I am so glad you found our location good and the quality of our rooms to be clean and comfortable. It is true that parking and location is at a premium. We do work had to keep this at a value for our area and we remain the cheapest valet service in our area. Thanks again for staying and for staying at Holiday Inn Expresses

Loved this hotel. Room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast buffett was awesome...I mean for free you couldn't really beat buscuits & gravy, sausages, scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, make it yourself pancakes, fresh bananas and apples, selection of toasts and bagels...was just awesome!

Location was very convenient as we could walk a few blocks and catch the tram to Union Square. The selection of the restaurants in the area were plenty and quality was nothing to complain about. And unlimited number of device for free wifi at this hotel (Westin at NY Times Square allowed 3, Caesar's Palace only 2). And lots of activity centers to help you plan your stay in SF.

I have already recommended this hotel to relatives who will be going to SF in October.

Our stay here was nice because of its location. Close to fishermans wharf and to other tourist spots...(cable cars, ghiradelli, crooked st. Chinatown). The hotel itself is clean... Good breakfast and wifi works well. Overall, its a good place to stay...

Just returned after a week here.
The hotel is just a few minutes walk from Fishermans Wharf, great location.
Lovely room, nicely decorated and a huge bed with plenty of pillows :)
Free breakfast... 6.30 to 9.30, be warned they shut the doors bang on 9.30 any later and you won't get fed :)
No swimming pool but you can use the pool at the Holiday Inn next door, and it was very nice with plenty of sunbeds.
Coffee making facilities in the room and also a (free) safe.
$55 in a taxi to the airport or $17 per person in the shuttle bus.
Had a lovely week here.
