“GREAT PLACE TO STAY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

We have stayed here several times and is our "go to" hotel when we visit SF. The location is perfect, the staff is helpful and friendly. A room with a street view can be noisy with local traffic at night but otherwise....It is great. They are pet friendly too. We have taken our dogs there a couple of times and NEVER had an issue. The afternoon wine social is very nice. They have a variety of room choices....we have stayed in a regular room and a suite. All are well appointed and are roomy and comfortable. The restaurant attached to the hotel is awesome. We have enjoyed many meals there. The parking is pricey but it is everywhere in SF and it is extremely convenient. This Best Western is a gem!!

Room Tip: Rooms away from the street corner are quieter.

Great location -- Nice, safe area and very close to Fisherman's Wharf and boarding for the double decker tour buses. It's not cheap but nothing decent is in San Francisco. We never even looked at the pool or spa so cannot comment on those things.

This was an excellent location, only one block to the Wharf. It was in December when we were there, and we loved the way the lobby was decorated for Christmas, a fire was going in the fireplace, and there was a wine/pizza welcoming party in the lobby at 7:00 pm. We liked everything about it. We were also upgraded to a suite and that definitely was a plus. Too bad our stay was only one night. We will definitely stay here again.

We always stay here because of the location so close to Fisherman Warf, trolley stops, & good restaurants. The hotel is old but very well maintained. The staff is very friendly & helpful. On ground parking at additional cost is a plus in SF. We park the car and rely on public transportation to see the local sites. There are many things to see & do that are in walking distance and there is a bus stop across the street. Rooms are small but very comfortable. Be sure and go to the evening wine tasting.

We were on a 6 week road trip with our 3 dachshunds. Our reception at the Best Western Tuscan Inn was exceptional. The staff made us and our dogs feel very welcome. Their names were posted as Very Important Pets and little dog bones were left out for them in a basket in the lobby. The staff quickly started calling Snorkie, Rambone and Ziggy by name.

The location is superb and we were able to walk our boys all over the wharf. We were so pleased that we stayed again in April. We've been coming to San Francisco for nearly 40 years and will return to the Tuscan Inn for many years to come. Rich, from Inverness, Illinois.

Just a good hotel, nicely appointed, convenient location in Fisherman's Wharf/North Beach area, very convenient to the Powell-Mason cable car line, friendly & efficient staff, great value. There is a wine reception every evening from 4-6 pm in the lobby if that interests you although we were usually out and about at that time. Overall, we had a great experience here and I would recommend this hotel to anyone for their San Francisco vacation; we look forward to staying here again during our next visit.

Room Tip: If you want quiet, ask for a room that overlooks the courtyard.

Very quiet, comfortable hotel. We wanted to visit our favorite restaraunt at the wharf and visit an art exhibt. We found that both were within 2 blocks or so of the hotel. We did take a stroll further away, but caught one of the 2 person bike rides back to the hotel at a very fair price. Thanks.
