“Good location, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

I have stayed at the Tuscan several times due to its location to a doctor I see from time to time.

Pros:
Great location to Fisherman's Wharf, Coit Tower, Ghiradelli Square, etc.
Very nice and helpful staff
Nice happy hour with free wine from 5-6 each evening
Quiet
Clean

Cons:
No gym. They offer a $12 pass to the 24 Hour Fitness across the street, but I was NOT impressed with that gym. Old equipment and WAY overpriced!

Overall, I would recommend the Tuscan Inn!

We have been guests at the Tuscan Inn at Fisherman's Wharf for over 20 years. We usually make it there twice a year. It is clean, the service is excellent, the resturant is very handy and serves delicious food. Marlow, is the best waiter we have ever had, he works the dinner shift.
The Tuscan is very close to the wharf, cable cars, Pier 39, The Market Place, and many other places of interest. We have stayed a few other places in SF, but always go back to the Tuscan. From the Tuscan we can drive very easily over the Golden Gate Bridge, out to the Cliff House, Marine Headlands and Point Bona Vista. We drive over from Reno, NV. that way we can go to many places of intrest. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in SF. Also, the wine hour is very interesting, to, enjoy wine and good company. Also, to watch the people, you meet all kinds.

We reserved this hotel as a place to stay while we came to SFO to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. The hotel is within walking distance of everything and in a good neighborhood.
We stayed in Room 201 which was a nice, but small room. The staff was VERY friendly and the hotel was very clean.

I would not hesitate to stay here again

Room Tip: I did not stay in a room overlooking the street, But would probably stay away from that side, just f...

Stayed six nights. Great location and wonderful company during evening wine. Staff was great and very accommodating. Hotel near cable cars, trolleys and bus lines. Easy walk to anything we needed and to Pier 39 and other attractions.

Room Tip: Street rooms can be noisy due to traffic

Spent 4 nights here, with my two adult daughters. My special requests that I made when I booked were honored. Accommodating staff at reception and concierge, very friendly and helpful. Convenient location just two blocks from the waterfront, Boudin Bakery, Pier 39, and all the Fisherman's Wharf dining and shopping. Bus stop just across the street, or down the street, depending on where you are going. Excellent public transport, $2 takes you anywhere in the city, and the front desk provides maps, directions and bus numbers to make it easy. Shutters rather than drapes covered the windows, so the room was bright early in the morning, but I always wear a sleep mask, so this was not an issue. Rooms not very large, but when in San Francisco, with so many things to do, we only used the room for sleeping. Great coffee and tea service until 10am. Delicious choices for dining, dozens within a few blocks. Complimentary wine reception every evening in the lobby, great way to try California wines. Close to a supermarket for snacks and drinks, to stock the room fridge. This hotel is not inexpensive, but worth the price. I will stay here again when I visit San Francisco next.

Room Tip: Courtyard rooms are most quiet, but even street front rooms are well insulated from noise.

This hotel was wonderful! Even though we were on the street side of the hotel the room was lovely, comfortable,king bed with nice fresh linens and everything was very clean! We had brought a sound machine with us and the street noise early in the morning was hardly noticeable! We especially liked the Happy Hour In the lobby from 5-6 pm with a lovely assortment of wines and appetizers, in front of the fireplace! The location was perfect for us....a few short blocks to Fisherman's Wharf and the Hop On/Hop Off bus tour. Through another reviewer we found The Hollywood cafe for breakfast or lunch just up the street one block. We would definitely stay here again, no hesitation! All the staff was wonderful and helpful with directions, There are plenty of hotels that were priced much higher, but it isn't necessary!

We came over to the hotel on the Baylink Ferry from Vallejo to Fisherman's Wharf. This is the best way to get to Fisherman's Wharf. No traffic to deal with, no stress. The hotel is a mear 2 blocks away from Pier 41 and Pier 39.

Our hotel room was small but for an overnight stay it was adequate and not uncommon for San Francisco. The decor of the room was excellent. The room was very clean. The front desk staff were excellent too.

Room Tip: If you want a view make sure to ask. We didn't care as we were just doing an over-night to take...
