“Nice Motel for a quick visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I wanted to stay in the closest motel to my son's appt in San Francisco. Reception were nice, rooms updated, clean and comfy bed. I had only a 15 min walk to my sons appt and we walked to a pizza restaurant and then a nice bar. Parking off the street was a plus. Only one problem, I had the front room looking out on Geary and it was very busy noise wise, but I liked everything else and I will go back.

Room Tip: If you don't want street noise, ask for any room, except facing the street.

Expected a lot more looking at previous reviews. Compared to other places in the states we thought it was very overpriced (this is probably every where in San Fran). Room was ok but a lot of noise from Geary Blvd which is a very busy Rd. Public transport is easy to access but you are looking at a 30 to 40 min trip into downtown. The neighborhood is good, plenty of places to eat and drink. Breakfast is a joke ,why bother? Would look at staying closer to down town If I visited again. Overall very average.

This is an older motel which has been extensively renovated with up to date furnishings. We stayed in a king bed room. The room was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. This is a great location on Geary, a block away from Clement, within walking distance of Golden Gate Park, near lots of restaurants and shops of New Chinatown (check out the Dragon River a couple of blocks away on Geary). There is some traffic noise from Geary, but we found it was not overwhelming.

Housekeeping does a great job. The onsite manager was always helpful and responsive. Parking is limited -- but it is free. Breakfast is sparse (coffee, tea, prepackaged muffins, juice machine -- but the coffee is excellent).

We definitely look forward to staying at the Geary parkway Motel on our next visit to SF.

Geary Parkway Motel is the best value in San Francisco including free parking, which is a rare thing in the city. Clean rooms well furnished with flat screen TV, microwave, mini-fridge, coffee maker, ironing board, and pillow-top mattresses. In the Lobby, they serve coffee & tea all day, plus free breakfast pastries and juice each morning. The motel is located in a cute residential neighborhood with a short walk to great restaurants and the Golden Gate Park. This location is very convenient and right on the bus route to Fisherman’s Wharf, Downtown, and Union Square.

We arrived after a long flight and picked up our hire car. I was unsure about this place as I had read previous reviews about the limited parking. It was fine however, plenty of parking available even in the middle of the day. The man at the front desk was very friendly and helpful, and the beds are very comfortable. It is a bit far from downtown, but there are still plenty of good places to eat nearby, and the neighbourhood seems fine. It is a great location to start the 49 mile scenic drive around SF.

We had a wonderful 5 days in SF, and stayed at the Geary Motel...
The front desk fellow "Henry" was always very helpful, and pleasant.
Henry helped make our trip to SF a real happy trip.
Will want to go back to this motel for future visits!

in town for my son's graduation. the prices in san francisco make me feel like i am back in london. this motel was in my son's neighborhood and the price was close to resonable. the bus let us out right in front of the place. i took a deep breath and thought "oh, no" it is a motel 6!!! however, the bones are a motel 6 but they are tried really hard to make it worth the cost. very clean outside. i was suprised at how quiet it was (second floor near the back) considering how close it is to the busy street. the retro-fit inside the room was well done. tiny bath, but with granite shower and nice shower door. the towels were good. the bed was very nice with good support and lots of pillows. the tv was a flat screen (maybe a 46 inch?) nice size fridge. free wifi and the folks at the desk and staff were very nice.

Room Tip: near the back and on the second floor
