“Perfect Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2006

Stayed for 2 nights in May 06. The hotel is in the perfect location for Fishermans Wharf and the best activity in San Francisco BIKE THE BRIDGE. Our room was bright, clean, comfortable and spacious. Not a bad point about it, though we did go uptown for our final night which was a really good idea to save the expense of riding the cable car, and gives you a great chance to see all the other sights on offer.

Although shared by three adults, we found the room at the Tuscan Inn to be adequatly large enough. We did ask for and receive an inner courtyard room, which made for a relaxing view and quiet sleep. Never was disturbed by slamming doors, noise of any kind, and our room was also close to ice machine. Stayed for two nights and really enjoyed the free wine in the evenings and biscotti and coffee and/or wide range of teas in the morning. Close proximity to many attractions, and also transportation to other areas of the city. The hotel's restaurant Pescatoro served an excellent ciopino! Would stay again if ever in SF.

The hotel room was average although the service was good. The location of the hotel is very good. Only a short walk to Fisherman's Wharf where many of the attractions happen. Book a Segway tour, it was great fun and you can walk to where it starts. Go to Alcatraz and hire the audio tour. Again, boat trip starts from the local pier. Pier 39 is also here, with the famous seals.

After a bad experience at the Sheraton across the street (badly misrepresented on the Sheraton website), we decided to go to the Tuscan Inn where we stayed 2 yrs ago. We should have come back here to begin with and spared ourselves the 4am room changing shenanigans over at the Sheraton. The Tuscan took us in at 10:00 am and let us check in immediately, gave us a courtyard view room (which is always quieter at the Wharf), and gave us a $149 rate (AAA) for a BEAUTIFUL room. We may have had an ADA room because it was pretty big with large bathroom - it was room 459 - and the room had all the amenities we were looking for. Refrigerator, minibar, free wi-fi, iron & board, hairdryer, down comforters (they were HEAVEN) and pillow top beds. It was decorated beautifully in white, black, burgundy, and a touch of teal, with a mirrored wall to give it a more open feel, and wooden louvered shutters. Even the shower pressure was decent. The lobby (which has a fireplace and very comfy furniture) has a wine tasting for free between 5-6pm each night and you meet dozens of really nice people from all over the world. There is internet access near the fireplace area at a nominal charge if you don't have wi-fi. The restaurant, Pescatoro, is excellent. The rooms are spotless and the employees are as nice as you could ever want. Ask to see a few rooms before you check in, because the room size and location can vary between floors and sides. Ours has two double beds. Some of the king beds had very comfortable sofa beds, which we had 2 years ago. All in all, the location was perfect - a short walk to the cable cars or bus lines, a Safeway grocery and Walgreens drugs is across the street in a parking garage-type mall, and there are small places to eat breakfast nearby plus an IHOP a few blocks over. The Wharf is about a block away. Just beware if you get the SuperShuttle to the airport - if you tell Supershuttle you are staying at the Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf it's $23 for 2 people and if you tell them you are at Tuscan Inn, literally across the street, it's $30 for 2 - something about contracts with the hotels - and they pick you up earlier than they say so BE ON TIME wherever you get it. All in all - cold and windy there but we had a great time so it didn't even matter, and the hotel was PERFECT. Oh - and some don't miss tours - Yosemite, and Muir Woods. You will keep the memories for a lifetime.

good location, close to fishermans wharf, pier 39, ghiradaelli square and cable car stops to union square.

but, do ask for an internally facing room - ours was overlooking the front of the hotel and incredibly noisy with the traffic

I will just echo what everyone else has said - this is WAY better than any other Best Western i have stayed in. And the location is perfect for tourists.

BUT - the external facing rooms can be noisy from traffic, so make sure you request an internal room, facing the courtyard. We had one night in each!

We (grad student couple) spent the last week at this wonderful hotel. It was located in a great spot - close to the tourist areas and also Muni and cable car transportation to go all over the city. In addition to being next to many shops and stores to pick up whatever you may need.
The staff was really great- friendly, knowledgable, etc. and the free coffee/tea and beer/wine daily was very nice and allowed for a cozy feeling among the quests.
The room (king bed) and bathroom were perfect in size- just what is needed. We had an interior room, which was nice and quiet. Although there is not much space for clothes/personal items- two drawers and a small closet, it was more than enough for all of our things for the entire week.
Overall, we had a great time here, loved everything about the tuscan inn, and would definitely stay here again upon return visits to SF.
Although there is no pool or fitness facility at location, as others have mentioned, passes are available at the front desk for $9/day for the 24 hour facility right across the street that has both gym equipment and a pool.
Some advice- don't rent a car in SF, you don't need it! Public transportation (you can buy unlimited passes for a varied number of days) is more than enough and can take you everywhere without having to worry about parking (or paying for it). And, it definitely pays for itself with just a few rides of the cable car (which is $5 each way these days).
You will love SF and the Tuscan Inn!
