We found this motel last year when searching for an alternative to our usual place in the Japanese district. Due to multiple events in the city, that motel tripled in price. Changing weekends wasn't an option because our reason for coming to SF was to attend Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. This is not a luxury hotel and isn't for everyone, but we love the location (blocks from the beach), the price (very reasonable), the owners/managers (friendly, helpful). This year, we didn't look for anything else, we booked OPM. There is on-site parking if you have a car, and public transportation is very convenient if you don't. The rooms and bathrooms are fairly small, but we aren't there to hang out at a motel. It is clean, comfortable, and we love the character of the motel and area. You can walk to several restaurants, the beach, and the zoo. We kept the windows open at night and fell asleep listening to the waves. And yes you hear the electric buses but they never kept us awake and if they had, we could have used the ear plugs that are provided in every room. I look forward to going back next year, if not sooner.
