Room was not ready when we got there, and we arrived after Check-in, which constituted quite a change in our travel plans, But the room was very large, I have high expectations in regard to cleaniness, and I was pleasantly surprised. It's a little out-dated, but very neat and well maintained. parking, although a little awkward, is free. After Check... More

Rooms typical of three star accommodation, slightly dark room and felt very dated. Clean and good size includes a full size fridge and microwave in the room, the fridge was very noisy at night and we had to unplug. Free breakfast in the morning consists of cakes/pastries, packs of oats and coffee. Reasonable location 10-15 min walk to Hyde street.... More

bare bones motel, other guests were noisy, rooms and furniture are old, and not super clean. the area is also not great - no much in walking distance. free parking is a plus. but really not worth the $.

Only stayed for one night which was fine; a great base to explore SF on foot, you can get to Lombard street with a short walk, plenty of restaurants around in the area and free parking. The room is small, and a bit musty, with dated decor, but it serves it's purpose well and wasn't too expensive.

Priced well for a San Francisco location. Good room. Clean. FRIENDLY staff (Roberto and Will). FREE PARKING is the biggest asset! Security cameras for the off street parking lot. Great location. Found it to be very quiet well before bed time. Even the elevator was quiet. Honestly the same accommodations in any other city would be half the price. But... More

We chose this hotel for its location and the reviews were mostly positive. Check in was efficient and Roberto very pleasant; a Continental breakfast was offered. The room was very tiny and the bed just so-so although sheets and towels very clean. I think a change of carpeting may remove the musty smell. The location was perfect and the bus... More

We had a very good experience at the Nob Hill Motor Inn. 1. The staff was friendly and helpful. They let us leave our car after checkout time as long as we needed to. 2. Noise was not a problem. We could hear people walking by our room but city noise and noise from other guests was absent. The place... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 night excellent location if you want to walk to attractions or ride the cable cars. The parking is tight in both number of stalls to park in and the size of the stalls not for full size cars or suvs. With a good hot shower and microwave plus refrigerator and free parking free...

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
