“Not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

When you're on a budget in San Fran your options are pretty limited and so I picked this motel even though I wasn't thrilled with it. Staff were okay, not very friendly but not rude either. Parking is free which is a massive bonus. The rooms were a bit of a surprise when I walked in. I generally stay in midrange priced hotels which in San Fran just isn't an option price wise so it was a different kind of experience. Room was clean enough although there were dark hairs around the bathroom and bedroom and my partner and I are both light haired. This made me feel a little unhappy about the cleanliness. Ultimately after a day or two I got used to the room and it offered us a great location and base in San Francisco within our price range. If places like this didn't exist we wouldn't have been able to afford to visit San Francisco but I don't know if I'd stay again. I think I'd save up a little more and stay somewhere else.

We stayed here on a family vacation. Location was just excellent, we could walk or take the bus/trolly everywhere very easily. Nice, clean, room, and free parking was really a plus. The breakfast wasn't much, but pleny to get us all going in the morning. Thanks for a great stay!

Standard motel, but pricey for what you get. Rooms are OK and clean, but no air conditioning and the sound insulation is poor - you could hear conversations next door and people walking around upstairs. Breakfast is very limited - they need a toaster. Staff are very pleasant and helpful.
Location is good. You can walk to the wiggly part of Lombard Street and Fisherman's Wharf without too much of a problem. Plenty of bars and restaurants on Lombard and Chestnut, a block away.
In case you are not a confident driver, parking is very tight - you have to drive in and then reverse out onto the main road.

This is a very nice property. It is in a great location, can walk to all kinds of restaurants and easy walk to the waterfront. It has free parking which in this area is very rare. It is an older property but it is taken care of nicely. The room is extremely small but well appointed. The bathroom was really too small, you could barely turn around, but everything worked. We planned on staying 3 days, but it was very cold, so we left after 1 night.

Stayed 2 nights at the Town House and found it to be very comfortable and on one of the main streets of the City but not plagued with noise from traffic. Owners helpful and pleasant enough and the location was great for getting around. we went on a Tour Bus around the City and over the Bridge and were impressed with the value for money as we would not have seen 1/2 of the sights had we not took the tour.

Room Tip: We were up on level 1 and were not disturbed by any traffice noise.

Within walking distance of Pier 39 and the main tourist points the Town House is great for those on a budget - especially if you have a vehicle (Free Parking). Good safe are with lots of good restaurants etc close by. Slightly grumpy receptionist but other than that all clean and well maintained.

Room Tip: Any - Ground floor better

The Town House Motel is not a great place by itself, though nothing is wrong with it. The rooms are large enough, the beds are good, it's clean, the staff is friendly, the continental breakfast is nothing to write home about (as you might expect as a European). Best point is that it's next to a good bike rental shop, and close to many places you might want to visit. Just 10 minutes or so to Fisherman's Wharf (walking) and next door to Fort Mason. Tour buses stop in front of the Motel. Also the Safeway in walking distance is an asset.
Free parking and a reasonable price make the good picture complete.

Room Tip: Rooms looked all the same to me
