“Great Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

This is not the Ritz...that being said, it is a comfortable, quiet, great-value of a motel in a location hosting very few lodging opportunities. It is an older motel which has been updated. It offers free (!) parking to approximately 12 cars, but street parking is available if you watch the signs. They offer a simple breakfast of muffins, juice and coffee each morning. The room was nicely sized, clean, and included what we needed for our stay. Wi-Fi worked well in our room, but was just a tad slow. We heard a bit of noise from people walking to their rooms, but not much from Geary which was in the front of the building directly outside our window. The office people were not terribly friendly or outgoing, but answered questions and provided assistance. If you are looking for 5* accommodations, this will not be your favorite, but for a place to sleep, especially in this area of SF, it works quite well.

Actually this motel was recommended by another hotel that was booked up for our desired stay. We are so happy for this recommendation! Because now we have two wonderful go-to places to stay in San Francisco that are affordable, clean with wonderful customer service. This location is very convenient to the bus service and a short walking distance to the fantastic restaurants on Clement Street.

Henry was especially accommodating. My husband and I were made very welcome and taken care of with politeness and respect. We'll be most definitely be returning soon.

Room Tip: We stayed in the handicap room which was very quiet once we had the fan going. However, the people...

Our son booked this motel for the Memorial Day weekend (while we waited to move to our timeshare on Monday). Reminded us of a 50's motel from the outside, we were very pleasantly surprised and pleased with our stay and the rate was great. Located in the Richmond District we were only a walk away from our son. We were able to walk to church, and many restaurants and other shops, etc. The furniture was a bit old, but the room was very clean, bathroom small, but updated, and the bed very comfortable. Great TV reception and selections (which made our timeshare pale in comparison). The owner was very nice and accommodating. We missed our little place once we transferred to our timeshare in the city. Next trip, we will definitely stay here.

Room Tip: The rooms to the front of the motel are a bit noisy due to traffic. While that may bother some, it...

We spent 4 nights in this motel. Easy to find as its located on the main street surrounded by many restaurants and bars. Greeted by lovely and helpful receptionist who gave us some awesome tips and advice. Very close to the park and cca 15 min bus ride to the downtown. Very basic breakfast consisting of muffins and coffee. The one and only negative is parking. Only few parking lots and kind of narrow. Fully recommend this place ,we totaly enjoyed it there.

This hotel is not in walking distance to any notable San Francisco landmarks, but get yourself a Clipper card from the Walgreens a few blocks west and use public transport to get about.

The hotel it fairly well kept, our room had a funny smell - like old polish, but not unpleasant. The room is well cleaned and the bathroom is spotless, however the drawer units could do with some attention as the fronts were a but broken. Finding a car park spot can be a skill if the hotel is busy.

Although the bed was very comfortable, Geary Blvd can be noisy, perhaps especially for the rooms closest to the road. At night it isn't a huge problem, but in the mornings it might wake you up.

The staff were pleasant enough, but weren't as friendly as some hotels I have stayed at.

Make sure you get down for your breakfast coffee and muffin before 9:30am though, it gets packed away after that.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the road and in the upper floor.

Given the look of the hotel, we were skeptical. Read a review about rude staff. Found the staff and the rooms acceptable and the manager very informational. Recommended if you are on the west end of Geary. Comfortable beds, small but clean bathroom, microwave and refrigerator. Even though on Geary it is relatively quiet. Of course we were near the back.

Since I have family who live in the Richmond district I stay here often..clean..safe.. close to many restaurants that are reasonable considering this is San Francisco. .I had recently booked 2 night's but a family emergency had me flying out of state on short notice..I forgot to cancel my stay @ this motel and was notified by the manager..I explained I had a death in the family and he was understanding and said he would try to book the room so I would not be charged..little things like this make staying here and visiting SF special
