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

I found this hotel on Trip Advisor and it looked ok. Well it was just ok, nothing special at all. The location was good to walk down to the waterfront. The other thing was they don't charger to park your car there. You don't want a room on the street side as it was very noisy. No restaurant at this... More

If you don't mind walking a little.....Less than a mile walk to the Alcatraz ferry, with a Starbucks on the way. When heading back, go to the Coit Tower stairs and climb the 300+ steps up, it's downhill to the hotel from there. Rest, have lunch or dinner, then walk up the (crookedest) Lombard St. Reward yourself and walk down... More

As I started my hunt for our family trip to SF, I soon found out that it's almost impossible to get a place that can fit our family of 5, with a reasonable balance of price and location. Most of the hotels only accommodate 4 in a room. So when I found that Columbus Motor Inn had something for our... More

Great value for money. Perfectly positioned for Fisherman's Wharf, Little Italy, China Town, and the cable cars, as well as many other attractions. Rooms were nothing special but clean and comfortable. The staff on the front desk were friendly and extremely helpful.A great place to stay in a great city at a very reasonable price!

I hesitate to post a review because this is such a great place to stay that I don't want anyone to know about it! My family stayed 3 nights in one of the suites. The suite easily accommodated a roll away bed and a dorm sized refrigerator (trust me- fruit and cereal for breakfast each day will save you $$... More

This hotel is situated in an area not too far out of the city. Down the road, is the well known pier 39. A bike hire shop is also a minutes walk away, which was useful. Bus and tram links passed nearby, so if you don't feel like walking there is plenty of public transport for you to use. If... 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.
