Best Western plus Tuscan Inn is located 2 blocks from Fisherman's Wharf and near many attractions. Our room was located on the 4th floor facing a courtyard which was very quiet. The king size bed was extremely comfortable which made for a great night sleep after touring all day. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Request upper floor in rear away from noisy street.

We stayed a weekend in October at the Tuscan and really enjoyed it!

Pros
1. Location! Less than 2 blocks walk to Fisherman's Wharf. Close to the F line and 8x MUNI line that takes you into Union Square. Trader Joes is nearby for your grocery needs

2. Service - valet was very helpful in flagging down a cab for us during a busy weekend. The front desk was extremely friendly for all of our needs

3. Room - small but very comfy. We knocked right out in the comfy bed. We were lucky to get a corner room away from the street which really added to the quaint, relaxed environment. The room is nicely furnished and decorated with up-to-date fixings. Shower was a little on the older side but that is purely aesthetics, functionality is fine.

4. Mini-fridge - it is not a sensor operated fridge, so you can store things you buy at the local grocer while moving things around

5. General area/fireplace - if you are waiting around for your ride, enjoy their lounge, which is equipped with a fireplace and books. Nice touch to a boutique-like atmosphere.

Could Improve
1. Only slight downside I could think of is the first whiff of the room when we entered. It has some residual of the old days when rooms were smoking. It didn't bother us except for when we first entered, but turning on the AC took care of that.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Tuscan Inn and will gladly stay again.

Nicely appointed rooms, walking distance to all attractions. Free wine tasting 5-6 pm. When we missed the tasting front desk sent up a bottle of wine to our room - nice touch.

Parking fee somewhat formidable at $44 a day but you can park on the street and plug the metre until 7pm- free until 7 a.m. We drove to the waterfront, parked and then returned to a parking meter by the hotel at 7pm.

Room Tip: Initial non smoking room had a filter cleaner plugged in so we changed rooms. Front desk very quick...

We arrived at this hotel after a long day of travelling from the UK. The staff were amazing and we quickly felt at home. Yes the rooms are a little dated, but they were clean and comfortable.
The hotel was ideally situated too, and we found it so convenient to explore from there rather than from a hotel in Union Square as we had originally thought.
The "wine tasting" was a superb idea and gave us a chance to make new friends and discover activities that we would have missed out on.
Would definitely return should we ever go back to San Francisco.

The Best Western Tuscan Inn is in a very good location for a holiday trip to San Francisco. Our room was very comfortable and the small restaurant served good food for breakfast. The dining room is open all day and while the menus looked very good, we chose to eat elsewhere for lunch and dinner. Our deal with Trailfinders included continental breakfast and we could buy main breakfast menu items at half price. The Eggs Benedict were delicious. Tuscan Inn is just a few hundred yards from the famous Pier 39 and the sea lions. From Pier 39 you can pick up boat trips around the bay and all of the bus tours have a stop here. The tram system runs nearby to take you to Market Street. A very good all round choice.

We had a great stay at the Tuscan Inn. The service was friendly, helpful and efficient. We were shown to our room, very quiet room facing over the internal courtyard. Nicely equipped and well serviced. Air con was appreciated but a little noisy, as most in room hotel aircons seem to be.

We ate out or brought Pizza in, the hotel has a reasonable restaurant with fair prices but we made other choices. We did enjoy the managers free wine tasting hour and they really will just let you keep going up and trying as much as you like!

The Oracle conference was on while we were there and it was very business busy but didn't make any difference, plenty of space around the hotel and never felt crowded.

For note it's well placed, 5 minutes walk from Pier 37 and fishermans walk but we did feel a little uneasy walking around after dark in that area. Maybe just us, we're not city folk!

Room Tip: The rooms that overlook the internal courtyard are nice and quiet.

We stayed here for five nights while attending a conference downtown. The hotel staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms are a good size, clean and comfortable. We received a complimentary continental breakfast of fruit bowl, toast and coffee. A la carte breakfast at additional cost was great and excellent value. Wine tasting in the evening was very enjoyable, we also enjoyed a terrific evening meal in the restaurant. Great location for both downtown a tram ride away and for the activities around fisherman's wharf. We hired bikes locally and cycled across Golden Gate Bridge. I would most certainly stay here again.
