“The Star Motel a Great Find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2006

This little motel is modest and very clean. We stayed here for 5 days. The motel is located on Lombard Street, just 6 blocks away from the crooked part. You can walk to Fisherman's Wharf in about :15. Of the many positives, I would have to say that their BEST attraction is that they offer free parking to overnight guests. The majority of the hotels and motels we researched charged anywhere from $15-$30 a night just to park your car in their parking lot! With parking in San Francisco being difficult to find, we felt this was an amazing plus.
There are two great shopping districts within walking distance. One to the west of the motel and the other to the east. The area isn't ritzy and has a ton of motels, but if you're looking for low price with cleanliness this is your place. Also, the customer service was outstanding and the housekeepers did an EXCELLENT job at keeping our room extremely clean.

We have stayed at the Star Motel on at least 6 different trips to San Francisco. It is located in a good neighborhood (felt safe walking around with young daughter at night). The staff is always friendly and helpful. Rooms are always clean & the shower feels like a nice massage after walking around all day.

The staff at the Star Motel quoted me a price of $90.00 and this place was recommend by friends. When I saw the Motel I thought it was a little over priced. (It was too late to book anywhere else)

I asked a few other guests what the price of their rooms were and most of them told me $70.00. I saw a walkin also get a price of $70.00.
They took advantage of me I'm very up set and I feel cheated by the STAR MOTEL.

I could of stayed in Union Square at any one of the Joie De Vivre hotels for the price I payed. Never ever stay there.

Located in the Cow Hollow section of San Francisco, this motel is nicely located for excellent restaurants within short walking distance,longer walk to Ghiradelli Square and Fishermans walk,accessibility to public transportation.

The well-maintained rooms are larger than most motels, with separate closets, sturdy plastic coffee cups (not styrofoam) better-than-usual amenities, good maps and guides.

The front desk was genial and accommodating. Some of the free parking was under shelter. The price was reasonable by S.F. standards. A good budget choice.

I normally stay from "motels" but this one had a very subtle charm to it. The rooms were clean, basic, and comfortable. Our coffe maker wasn't working, called the front desk about it and they sent over a replacement one withing 15-20 min. Good neighborhood since its on a major street but not noisy. Bargain rate for a great time.
