Best I can say is that the Staff was very kind in giving us an immediate refund, as we would not stay at the location. Hotel is in shabby condition, we just left Tides in Monterrey. Refused to stay at location and was grateful when found room near wharf. Staff seemed very understanding of our disappointment- I expected a clean... More

Very run-down place with much deferred maintenance. Needed a place for the night after attending a party all day so cheap was in order and this didn't even fit the bill in that department. I'm super glad I was too drunk to see the place at night, but waking up in the morning meant I had to see where I... More

Across the street from beach and Golden Gate Park, but neighborhood pretty run down. Building is old, not in good condition (no elevator, dirty stairwells and walkways). But sheets and towels clean, bathroom had been updated. Beds fairly hard. Baseboards and behind furniture hadn't been cleaned in a while. No hairdryer (when we asked the front desk, they told us...

This place is OLD & funky! But it's 2 blocks to the Pacific Ocean. The beds are firm and the shower is hot and that's about the most important thing in a hotel for me. They do look like they are preparing for a remodel or at least repainting. The electrical outlets are probably from the 60's so it's hard... More

I booked this hotel when I couldn't find anything else at a reasonable price (busy weekend) and the location was enticing. The room was fine, with nice towels and a fairly new bathroom, and the bed was okay. Wifi and TV were good. No AC, which I did not need since it was quite chilly. However, the exterior of the...

As a rule, my family and I only stay at chain hotels, however I went against my better judgement and booked the Great Highway Inn for six nights. While our stay was not a disaster, it also was not extraordinary. The proximity to the beach and Golden Gate Park are by far this hotel's biggest virtues. However, be advised in... More

We decided to stay inexpensively in San Francisco and use the money we saved on some nice food and drinks...so we chose the Great Highway Motor Inn. The motel room was very large and clean. The front desk people were very friendly (most of them). The parking was cheap/easy. A lot of family and traveler guests. The ocean is right... More

Not the fanciest of motels and you can see the wear of years around the edges, but a very spacious room, clean, quiet, and everything in working order. It is so close to the beach that in the quiet of the night, with the window open, the hum of the waves can be heard. Want to spend the night by... More

We booked this as it was by far the most affordable option for our family of 6 in San Francisco. You are right by the beach and quite close to the golden gate park. The muni stop is also close, but plan on a long ride into town to see any of the sites. We had a jr suite room... More
