Stayed here two nights in November on our way to Vegas. Great location, slightly let down by the need to get taxis involved for travel to/from the airport. The hotel itself is nice, clean, staff are friendly, plus there is free coffee facilities in the morning. The bar connected to the hotel is a massive rip-off, $12 for two beers??

Room Tip: Try & ask or a room with an external, rather than courtyard/internal view

This was the 2nd time we stayed at the Tuscan Inn at Fisherman's Wharf. I made the reservations in mid-September for the Sun-Tues after Thanksgiving. The valet parking was included in the rate.
We checked in and just like last time, they upgraded us to a small suite. It definitely gives three adults the extra room they need!
Monday morning the front desk gave us explicit directions on getting to the bus and taking it, along with getting a transfer to go to the Golden Gate Bridge.
We requested our car for 3:30am on Tuesday and it was there waiting for us when we got down stairs and someone was behind the front desk to give me our receipt.
It's located 3-4 blocks from Fisherman's Wharf and there are a few good restaurants in the area. I'll stay there every time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room off the courtyard. The street side (especially the 2nd floor!) is a little noisy at...

Another great Best Western Plus Hotel. European sizeed rooms but, very well appointed and clean. Should have paper delivered to the door and a liitle more than coffee in in lobby in the AM.Overall, a good value close to cable cars and the Wharf.

Spent Thanksgiving week at the Tuscan Inn. Every single person working at the hotel was pleasant, helpful, and accommodating; valet, front desk, person setting up the wine reception each evening, housekeeping, mechanic regularly checking things out, manager. The hotel was clean, free wifi, free wine reception every evening, and everyone was super friendly and helpful. The hotel staff is an awesome team. The location is great, we were able to walk to just about everywhere we wanted to go. Only used our car to get to wine country and Muir Woods. The rooms on the street side are a little noisy, but the interior rooms are amazingly quiet (not a great view, but worth the peace and quiet for us). We felt extremely comfortable here and were treated as though they were very happy to have us.

Room Tip: Interior rooms are extremely quiet, but do look out at other room windows, with a pretty courtyard...

Staff was great.
Location is good, close to the wharf, trolleys, pier 39, alcatraz and hop.on.hop.off buses.
Good deal as well, price vs quality.
Room was clean, size ok. Complimentary internet is a positive.
