We stayed here for four nights towards the end of December. We were thrilled to be able to walk to all that Fisherman's Wharf/Pier 39 have to offer. We did have to cab to the Golden Gate Bridge though. The hotel was definitely not the most luxurious, but it was clean and spacious. I was disappointed that we had no... More

This hotel is perfectly located at Fisherman's Wharf. The staff was cordial and efficient. The room was clean with extra pillows on each bed. The breakfast was just ok. There was a lot of variety, but the biscuits and the gravy were cold to luke warm. All in all, we would definitely stay there again. The breakfast/lunch place next door... More

Was there last week. Chech in was fast + little gift as priority club member, Great location for wharfs, marina, presidio, fine art museum and Russian Hill visiting - little bit far from Golden Gate park,Mission & Castro. But the bus & street car (Mason) are just the next corner and there is a lot of bike rental all around.... More

Staff was very helpful from check-in to check-out. They merged two reservations into one for a seamless stay. Awesome area. Can walk to nearly everything. Short walk to street cars or cable cars for everywhere else. Good dining nearby. Recommend a game at ATT Park during baseball stadium. Thanks for a great stay!

We stayed as a family of four with two small children earlier this month. The location was perfect as was the service. Yes the rooms are a little dated but most importantly they were clean. No wifi in room was a huge downer for us as in the evenings when kids are asleep my husband and I generally get on... More

The hotel is in a great location and the rooms are pleasant albeit not large. But typical for San Francisco. The rooms are clean, the public spaces the same. I got excellent customer service at the front desk in making arrangements for the fact that they did not have two bed rooms regardless of my reservation. I however received the... More

My wife, kids and I stayed here in July 2012 on a road trip from Seattle to LA. We had a fantastic experience with the Holiday Inn Express in Astoria, Oregon about a week earlier.

In the Fishermans Wharf area which made it convenient to walking around and seeing the area. The rooms were smaller but clean with most of the typical HI Express accommodations. Breakfast area was nice and service was good. Beware! Overnight valet parking is $45!!! That is the norm for the area but not really published from what I could find... More

The Pros: Location: By far, the best part of this hotel. You won’t be able to see the Bay, but Fisherman’s Wharf is within convenient walking distance and so are several cable car stops Free Breakfast: in a city like San Francisco, free breakfast is nothing to turn down. You can easily drop $30 a morning for breakfast for two... More
