We recently stayed here 3 nights and would most likely stay again if we came back to this beautiful city. Service was good. Rooms very clean. Comfortable bed. Wonderful breakfast bar with lots of choices from hot to cold. Great location near The Wharf. The only thing we didn't like was no wifi in the rooms. You had to go... More

This is our second stay at this hotel in 3 years. We chose it again because it is in a great location - very close to Fisherman's Wharf and all of its associated attractions, eg Pier 39, Alcatraz, Boudins Bakery, and a great uphill walk into Union Square - or you can catch the cable car which is also close...

Stayed at hotel for 7 nights starting 28 June 12. Ended up here through a Hotwire.com deal. We knew we wanted to stay in the Fisherman's Wharf area due to its central location to all of the sites we wanted to see on our first trip to San Francisco. With some help and comparison from TripAdvisor we essentially knew this... More

We stayed there early july with husband and 2 teenager daughters. Contrary to other HIE, this one is outstanding. Rooms are quite large for 4 . The breakfast area is also pretty big. It is the perfect place to stay for families, withnthe fisherman wharf just around the corner. Groceries are also near by . walk distance from beach and... More

We got a great deal at the HIE, Fisherman’s Wharf, so I can’t complain. The room was clean and comfortable and that’s most important. One of the features at the Holiday Inn Express is the free breakfast. It’s a light buffet, usually with cold cereals, breads, juice, fruit, and yogurt. Plus, they have some hot items – usually scrambled eggs... More

Great great location. Breakfast buffet included was very convenient. We had an OK room. Had to flip the mattress. They need to be changed. They forgot to make the room up one day. Had to call for towels. No great views because it's not a tall building but the location and access to everything in walking distance was worth it.... More

Stayed here last week for 3 nights, the location is very, very good, just a few minutes to Pier 39 and Fishermans wharf. The check-in was smooth, no issues. We got a "suite" due to our priority status and ended up with a room facing the hotel across the street. We asked for a water-view room and the front desk... More
