“Great Hospitality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

A reasonably priced option in a great location. Its actually more of a 70's motel than a proper downtown hotel. Lots of restaurants for all tastes and budgets within walking distance. The surrounding area has a neighborly feel and is fun to walk around. Across the street from the Presidio and around the corner from a great bus line for touring. Rooms are a somewhat dated and a little noisy but clean and roomy. Parking is free if you get a spot but could be problematic if you don't get one of their spaces, they fill up before the rooms do. The best part of this hotel is the staff. The front desk staff do double duty as concierge and are some of the best and most knowledgable Ive dealtt with anywhere. They were anxious to help and solve any problem. We'd definitely stay here again.

A short bus ride to the wharf and union square as well as a brief walk to lovely Chestnut Street (nice restaurants and bars), the main perk of this is the location and the helpful staff.

Parking is limited, but the place is clean, comfortable, good value and ideal if you're staying to enjoy and explore San Francisco. The staff were brilliant and advised us on buses, places to eat and even helped us sort out tickets for a baseball game.

Thank you for posting a review of our property. Chestnut Street is a very neat section of San Francisco. With 40+ restaurants and a multitude of shops it is easy to spend an entire day there. We are glad you found our hotel and hope to see you again in the future.

This hotel was one of the cheaper options for staying in San Francisco, without having to sacrifice much quality. There aren't a ton of amenities, but if your looking for a clean, comfortable place to rest every night, that's in a good location and for a great price, this is it. Located at the west end of Lombard street right next to the Presidio park is great for anyone wanting to explore the park or walk a trail to the Golden Gate bridge. Being right on Lombard street, you can walk to Fisherman's Wharf, get a taxi easily, or even take public transportation. The staff was all friendly and helpful with the concierge going a little extra to make sure our tours were notified and on time, as well as being very knowledgeable about the area. One down side is parking is very limited to anyone renting a car, but there's a little bit of public parking around. The complimentary breakfast is nothing special, but wasn't bad either, with cold cereal, fruit and breakfast bear claws every morning, enough to eat quick before leaving for early morning tours. I would stay here again and would recommend this place for anyone looking for an affordable stay.

Thank you for the detailed review. We also feel our hotel is a great jumping off point to explore the city. With five bus lines in our area we encourage guests to use public transit in order to maintain a parking spot in our limited lot. Our proximity to the lesser explored Presidio allows guests a different perspective of San Francisco. We hope to see you again soon.

This was a great location! The staff is really nice and helpful. It was great to have parking available. We parked and rode the bus around town. The rooms are plain, but very clean. We would stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

This motel was very expensive for a small motel. The prices in the city are high to begin with but were more so due to the limited availability created by a sailing event going on. The value further decreased due to the bare-bones choices for breakfast (cereal, pastries, juice, coffee).

The parking is free but extremely limited. There are less than half of the spaces needed to provide one for each room. Be sure to get a parking place early and never leave. Walk, bike, or take the bus instead.

The location is right next to the Presidio. So, it is in a nice and safer part of the city. We felt fine walking around in the area to restaurants.

The room was small but modern and clean. There was no bath, only a shower stall. There is road noise, but it isn't too bad.

The front desk attendant (Bruce) was friendly and helpful.

The room was clean and the air conditioner worked great! Very nice! The location was next to the Precidio so it was easy to get to many different places. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Loved the breakfast and the cookies and tea! The only thing to improve would be the tv, the sound didnt work well. Would come back to this location for sure!
