I stayed here in November 2012, and thought it was a very unique place. It is actually a collection of rooms and small apartments, some with kitchens. It is located one block from the Ocean on the western side of San Francisco, right near the zoo. It is quiet and the streetcar service can get you to all the touristy places very easily, although it takes about 25 minutes. Ample parking. Great owners and staff, very clean, great courtyard, hot tub, a great coffee shop less than two blocks away, and a good Thai restaurant about three blocks away. Only drawback is the distance to the touristy area (Fisherman's Wharf, etc.).
