This place has a great location, exceptional value, was clean, not as noisy as some report, the way America once was. These were not perfect mattress and pillow accommodations but at the same time they were flawless. We had two bedrooms with a kitchen and that too was very nicely appointed. I was one million percent satisfied, to exaggerate but...

Oh, what a nice place. I love the city of San francisco but stay out in outer Sunset is really relaxing, The motel is outta the past but you know that from other reviews, Lets see if I can tell you something new. To me what stood out was the attention to detail. I had the room that everyone else...

Pros: close to ocean and walking trails, close to zoo, muni stop across street, very clean, Free onsite parking Cons: In "fog belt", older property, so fewer plugs, small bathroom, less soundproofing. Muni is noisy (ear plugs are provided if you need them; we didn't), ask for a room In the back away from the street

I was able to make a reservation with little notice and the owner stayed up till late in the evening for us to arrive and was very helpful and friendly, even upgrading our room. It was perfect as a romantic getaway, a little gem set by the sea and away from the hustle and bustle of the main city. It...

Very pretty little motel, and $150 for a room with a full kitchen isn't a bad deal in SF. However, the two most important things for us are a good mattress and decent water pressure. Mattress seemed both very firm, and lumpy--neither of us slept well all night. (We do a lot of hotel travel, and have rarely slept so...

We chose this motel near the SF Zoo and Great Highway for one night, because everything in or near downtown SF was at $400+ per night due to a conference in town. We also were interested in the historic and art deco architecture aspects of this 1930s hotel with 'streamline moderne' design. The people were great: very friendly and accommodating,...

The motel itself is great - architecturally interesting, immaculately clean, well maintained, good value and quite the friendliest owners. However, before you book there are three things you should know: 1/ this is the foggiest part of a famously foggy city. In our trip in early August, it only lifted for an hour a day in mid afternoon, even though...

As a big fan of San Francisco, I have stayed all over the city. I had never stayed, nor explored much, over in the Sunset/Ocean Beach area. We wanted to take our 3 year old to the zoo and Golden Gate Park for his first trip to SF and found this little gem. We knew we didn't want to stay...

This was a lovely calm & relaxing day in San Francisco! We got in early, and the owner let us check in a hour early. He was amazingly helpful & kind We are here on our honeymoon, and this might be the sweetest place we have stayed so far!
