We have a king room on the third floor with a balcony. The views from the balcony are beautiful. We can see the water somewhat. Our room is a large king room with sitting area. It's very spacious. The carpet is on the newer side. The bed is very comfortable with plenty of pillows. There is a parking garage in... More

This is a very standard hotel with a great location close to Fisherman's Wharf and other sightseeing must in San Francisco. Has a fair price and free parking!!!! Parking can be very difficult in San Francisco and a lot of hotels charge from 30 to 60 dollars for parking per day. It's a big plus. Would stay again and recommend.... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in September. We had a large room with a king bed, it's a motor inn yes, but clean, comfortable and all you need as a base to explore San Fran. Easy walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf, and two cable car terminals. Trolly buses stop right outside so you have no problems getting to anywhere in... More

We had a suite with three beds which was great with two teenagers. Chose hotel for price and parking but the location is great too. Short walk to cable cars, fisherman's wharf and a Safeway for supplies. Room was not modern decor but clean. Good breakfast cafes nearby, e.g. Pat's cafe.

This was not my first choice, but it was much more affordable. We were renting a car, so the free parking added to our savings. We arrived at night, and my kids weren't too sure about my choice. After getting out and about the next day, they realized how close we were to everything and were much more comfortable. We... More

We drove straight into the free parking on arrrival and checked in slightly early. Staff were friendly. Found the hotel to be in the perfect location for our family of 5 (children 11, 13, 14) good sized rooms, clean and comfortable. We walked to China town, little Italy and Fishermans Wharf with ease. Great location for stay in this city.... More

The location of this hotel is perfect for a visit to San Francisco, located within a short walk from Fisherman's wharf and Lombard St. The rooms were large (we were a family of 5) and quiet. The beds were really comfortable. There is handy parking too if needed. The decor is a little tired but I would recommend and stay... More

We stayed here August 20-23, 2016. This motel is great place to stay. It's an easy walk to Fisherman's Wharf, and to many restaurants. We also walked to Alcatraz landing from the motel. The free parking is an excellent value, and the staff/owner is very accomodating. We stayed on the street side, and it was quiet - there's not much... More

Stay here when in SF close to a lot of places and easy access to the cable car. Rooms are clean and beds are great. Free Parking is one of its best assets. Goo to the Buena Vista for a couple of Irish Coffees

This was our second visit to this Inn. The staff were friendly and always willing to help, for example organising a taxi to the airport and looking after our suitcases on the last day after we had checked out. The room was good. We requested a quiet room, which we got. Parking on-site was helpful. The hotel is in a... More

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
