“3 night stay, very central location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Staff were very good and attentive to our needs. Hotel location is excellent next to Fisherman's Wharf and a short walk from Pier 39 and also one of the trolley car lines turnarounds. Hotel was clean and room we were in was very quiet. Very good and free Wifi.
On the downside the free breakfast was limited and always EXACTLY the same, so after the 3rd day was boring. Very plastic and disposable.
However this said we enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

We stayed at the Holiday inn express for 3 nights in April. The first receptionist was not very switched on. Her name was Ganida or something similar. She said no rooms available with double beds but we could have a rollover bed. She gave us a room where you couldn't fit a rollover bed without blocking the front door. We moved to another room. The next day we had access to a room with 2 double beds. There is no view from the window just a small court yard. A bit claustrophobic. The breakfast area is too small for the number of guests. This hotel caters from huge groups of students who are very noisy especially in the evening. You can hear people talking late in the corridors. The bedroom doors are very heavy and make a loud noise when closing. The ventilator in the bathroom is also very loud when switched on. It is like taking off. The receptionist Joseph was very pleasant and let us have a late check in at 14.30 instead of 12. Thanks to him.

Wasn't expecting much considering how high all the hotels were out there but when we found this hotel for $339 for 2 nights and yes that was the total. I was highly pleased. The check in was very fast and convenient. The room was spacious including a good area for a twin air mattress. Bathroom was a little small but clean. Beds were very comfortable also. You are in the city so be prepared for the loud delivery trucks all night.
The location was perfect could not have picked a more central location. Of course Fisherman's Wharf was a block away so much food and shopping we loved it. Pier 39 was a nice walk first night there we took the bay cruise and highly recommend stopping by and getting the crepe at the pier there so delicious. In the other direction was Ghardellie square and the cable cars. We used the cable car to go downtown and China Town on our way back it was fairly simple to get back on the cable car but noticed the lines that were headed the opposite way and was grateful once again for our location.

Beware of the hotel fee for parking which is about $47 a day which is about the best price you'll find out there too.
Overall I was very very happy with this hotel and if I go back I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for 2 nights after a business trip in San Francisco. Perfect location and only 5 min walk to Fisherman's WARF and all the restaurants and only a short Uber ride to North Beach or Marina district. Very clean and tidy. Included breakfast is not great but comparable to the other larger more expensive hotels in the area. Family friendly.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express with my sister for 5 days in March as part of a roadtrip around Western California. We had done a lot of research into San Fran and there aren't really any bargains to be had - this was our compromise as we saved on travel to and from the Fisherman's Wharf area. We upgraded our room to a mini suite which had a fridge and a microwave; worth doing if you want to store water etc in the room. The location was perfect, the room was as you'd expect from this hotel chain, we were happy with the standard. I didn't realise we didn't have an evening bar at all; though there were many places nearby. Breakfast was a buffet and was varied and fresh. Recommend if you want an easy chain on a budget.

We love the location since it is only a couple blocks from Fisherman's Wharf and Ghiradelli area. Also, it is right near any number of municipal transit stops so we can get wherever we want to visit around the city! We will definitely be back. We are repeat visitors and this time around they had redone the breakfast area and it is so much more convenient to get to stuff. They have a big variety of choices from cereal, pancakes, toast, eggs, biscuits... juices, milk and yogurts and on and on. We love it. And the staff is very nice and ready to help whenever needed. There is one particular desk clerk (I'm pretty sure her name starts with and A and has three letters but for the life of me I can't remember it) and she is one of the friendliest and more helpful! We actually remembered her from our last stay two years before because she was nice and willing to answer questions whatever we needed.
We will be back. the only thing I will say is our AC in our room did not cool very well and kept not coming down to the temp we set it to. It would get stuffy in the room but otherwise no problems!

This hotel was just a very short walk to Fishermans Wharf (2 short blocks once you round the corner onto Taylor Street). It was centrally located for almost any of the attractions. Transit was nearby in any direction (many thanks to the concierge for the map, it was great!). We tend to use public transit or walk everywhere when we travel so that was wonderful! Rooms were nice and clean, housekeeping staff very helpful. Breakfast was plentiful though some more gluten free options would be nice. Pretty much everyone we dealt with was very pleasant and seemed to want us to have a great experience in their hotel. Thanks!
