My husband and I stayed at the Geary Parkway Motel during a quick stop in San Francisco while traveling down the coast. We didn't expect much of this place except a place to sleep and put our car, and it just barely fit that. We arrived in the late afternoon and the parking lot was already starting to fill up. We checked in quickly with the abrupt staff member who pointed at signs rather than telling us information. We asked about parking and if there was overflow parking, to which he shrugged to "get back soon" and "maybe we can park on the street if we need to." The room itself was dated but clean enough. It was sufficient to get an ok night's sleep. We lucked out that a spot was available after dinner and squeezed our car deep into the lot. This is definitely a "you get what you pay for" situation. For $125.24, I would say this place is about what you would imagine. We probably wouldn't stay here again.

Booked a King Room here for a week because it was close to hospital where a family member was having surgery. I needed something affordable and this fit the bill. I did my research so I knew the hotel was dated and the parking limited. Yes the furniture is old but functional. The refrigerator and microwave were very helpful to have. The bed was very comfortable. There were some updates to the room and the room was very clean. We had no issues during our stay and we would stay there again.

Fantastic place to stay. We have stayed there at least 8 times and each time we are very satisfied. Henry, the manager, is friendly and so are the staff. The motel are clean - the rooms good with both table and 2 chairs. The bathroom is spacious. There is a refrigerator which we are very fond of. We come again - soon - as our son lives in San Francisco. Best regards Ivar & Lise from Denmark 🇩🇰

We booked this hotel based on previous reviews, much like a recent review from someone else said. We are certain that many of the reviews are fake. The man on the reception was incredibly rude to one of us and spoke to us in an appalling manor. The room we had was really run down, smelled musty and repairs were carried out to a poor standard. Holes were patched up in the walls and the doors bashed in. The bedroom window was smashed. The parking was tight and the owner was very quick to make us sign a disclaimer saying the car being broken into would be on us and that we can’t complain if there is no parking. We ended up rechecking the reviews in disbelief as we had expected much better, and looked to change our hotel. We note that you can’t cancel once checked in- we suspect as many people will have done the same as us; realise how horrible it is and want to leave. The street itself is terrible. Full of drug users and we did not feel safe. We’d planned to walk to places on our trip, but ended up driving everywhere and not getting a spot in the car park because not only was everything a long walk, we didn’t feel safe in this area. Overall the only positive thing I could say was the price wasn’t awful, but if we could have left and paid more to stay elsewhere, we would. I would say a higher price for a better motel is a better option than staying here.

Dear guest, we care about every guests' experience, and we are always disappointed if one of our guests leaves with less than first rate experience. We aim to provide a clean, comfortable and pleasant place to stay, and we are pleased to say that this is the case the vast majority of the cases. We listen to our guests' constructive feedback to make improvements, and this reflects on our reviews across the board. As for your remarks about the 'drug users', we are in the city's residential area, and this is not such a neighborhood. We are located near iconic destinations of the city, and we get visitors all over the world who cherish the location and easy access to restaurants and the best of what our beautiful city has to offer. Having said that, unfortunately, just like many major cities, we do also suffer from the issues of homelessness, which is spread across the city. However, we assure you that our hotel is safe! We are sorry that you felt such strongly about your stay. This, however, isn't an accurate description of our hotel and the surroundings as depicted by guests' stays and experiences across major platforms. We are always here to help and address your concerns. Please feel free to connect if there is anything we can do to help. Warmest regards, Customer Care Team Geary Parkway Motel

We stayed at this motel because my partner was having surgery at UCSF and it was a little over 1 mile away. I spent 3 nights. I had booked 2 but I needed an additional day and the Manager was very accomodating and booked me for another night. The room was extremely clean. The location was very centralized able to walk to many restaurants, coffee places, grocery and Golden Gate Park. Although, it was on a busy street, it was very quiet. I felt safe walking in the neighborhood. There was no continental breakfast, however, coffee and danishes were available. If we need to go and stay in SF in the future this will be our go to place.

I do not understand the positive reviews for this motel. Well, actually I do have a suspicion as to who is writing them, but without proof I cannot make the assertion. However, please let me tell you about our experience. My wife and I stayed at this hotel for about a week this summer. I booked the week here based on the positive reviews. Trip Advisor is usually dependable, but not this time. When I checked in, I entered the small, cramped office/lobby and the first thing I witnessed was the manager Henry yelling at a gentleman because he requested an additional towel. Henry told the man there were two towels in his room and that's all he needed. The man explained that his wife liked an extra one when she washed her hair. Henry finally relented, but was not happy. That was my first impression of Henry and Geary Parkway Motel. The next morning I went down for breakfast (calling the pathetic offering of stale packaged danish and bad coffee "breakfast" is a joke). While filling my cup, a lady buzzed the door to enter the lobby so she could turn in her room key and check out. Henry was not in the lobby, which was ALWAYS locked except for a few hours each morning. Henry hides in a room behind the lobby and avoids guests. Anyway, when the lady buzzed the door, Henry came flying out of the back room in a fury because he was mad at the lady for buzzing the door. By the way, there is a sign on the door directing guests to ring the buzzer to gain access. The poor lady was very flustered and near tears. The next morning, I received a call from Henry early in the morning. I was still sleeping, but Henry demanded I go down and move my car closer to the bumper block. I was driving a compact car, and my bumper was about 6-7 inches from the block. The car was a rental and I didnt want to scratch up the bumper by running into the block, but Henry insisted the bumper must be touching the cement block. We exchanged words and I moved the car rather than ruin my vacation because of a parking issue. Many people witnessed this exchange, and it gave me a chance to visit with several of the hotel clients, some of which seemed to be long term. They told me the nickname bestowed on Henry is Little Dictator. He apparently patrols the parking lot several times a day and harasses guests. They also told me he is an ego-maniac and almost every guest has issues with him. I asked why he and the motel got such good reviews and was told many of the reviews are forged. I was advised to just keep my distance from Henry the best I could, and spend as little time as possible at the motel. Which I did for the rest of the week. Ok, so enough about Henry. On to the accommodations. The room was incredibly small, old, and run down. There were many soft spots in the floor where I felt like I was going to fall through. However, the room was fairly clean and the bed was decent. That is the only reason I gave this review two stars instead of one. As mentioned before, the so called breakfast is a joke. The location is terrible. Not close to anything a tourist would want to do. Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39 are all the way across town, Golden Gate is not within walking distance, and neither is Golden Gate Bridge. In fact, there is nothing close to Geary Parkway Motel except a few oriental restaurants and some questionable neighborhoods. Although O have to say the restaurants were good. We used our rental car and/or Uber to go everywhere, which really added to the trip costs. The room prices were decent, but you get what you pay for. Make no mistake, this motel is an old, run down dive with sinkholes in the floors. All that said, it would be 100 times better if a new manager was hired.

Comfortable bed, refrigerator and microwave included, TV with LOTS of channels. Walking distance to many restaurants. Bus stop right in front! Limited parking but no charge for parking. Very friendly host. Keeps property well maintained and it is cute. Not much to look at but the rooms are really great - comfortable chair, nice table, nice desk for computer. Sufficient plugs! Mask policy enforced!

We have stayed at this motel many times over the last several years. Once we discovered this jewel, we have not stayed anywhere else. As a person who uses a wheelchair, I can tell you that Henry The Manager is most helpful and accommodating to meet all of our needs. He is a gem! The wheelchair accessible room has always been impeccably neat and clean, with an accessible sink and roll-in shower. It's on a main bus line for easy access to other parts of the city, and has FREE on-site parking! Free Keurig coffee and sweet rolls in the morning (a nice touch). The rates are always reasonable for the season. Don't miss an opportunity to book a room at this oasis. But don't wait, they go fast!

The pictures are all accurate. It is a basic hotel that is clean and decent for a one night sleepover. We had room 204 and it was OK. Pillows were good, linens were clean, towels were somewhat fluffy. Coffeemaker, safe, ironing board and iron, large flat screen TV, and fast wifi provided and in good working condition. Everything is cramped with little space but in SF you get what you pay for. The floor under the carpet had a some soft depressions but it never fell through. Did not hear any street noise but there was one brief car alarm and also one loud engine (as cars are tightly parked in close proximity to the rooms.) The motel has about 22 rooms, mostly on the 2nd floor, above the 1st floor parking that had about 13 parking spaces (including one for handicapped). Not sure if the owner or housekeeping staff used any of the parking spaces but if you do the math, you see why they advertise is it "free but first come, first serve." Morning had complimentary juice, coffee, and Danish pastries (wrapped). There is a 7-11 nearby as well as a Jack-in-the-Box across the street. The property fulfills its basic mission, to offer a good night's sleep.
