Stayed for 2 nights. Fantastic location. Quirky hotel that is great for children. Has a games area which my kids loved. Rooms are very clean, slightly small for a family of four but to be expected for a city hotel. Concierge very helpful when asking advice about getting around to see the city sights. Had a great stay at Hotel Zephyr.

Went with girlfriend and got a room for Jun parents as well. We really liked it. We kept saying how great this is for entire families with kids and all. What a real neat hotel! Great decor, Super clean, Friendly staff, and great location! Lots of activities for the kids. Next time I'll bring my daughters.

Thank you for letting us know you had such a great time. Your comments are important to us. There is so much to do and see in the area, you'll definitely have to come back and see us again. We can't wait to meet you daughters.

I’m not sure how this place has any positive reviews because it was actually one of the worst hotels I’ve ever stayed at. We were given a disabled room even though neither of us were disabled. Our fridge didn’t work so they brought in another one but that didn’t work either so my fruit went sour. The lock on the hotel door stopped working so I got locked in at one point. I went and complained and the guy I was speaking to was really nice but another lady who never smiled came over and told him in a very aggressive way that they were sold out so couldn’t move us. The room was just bad. Everything was dirty, broken, and old. The noise outside was so bad because the windows are poorly sealed. My biggest issue was the ironing board. It was super low to the floor because as I stated, they gave us a handicap room. I was attempting to iron my shirt when the whole thing suddenly collapsed on my foot. I ended up in so much pain that I had to ice my foot and was in pain most of the day. Avoid this place if you can. It actually felt like we were scammed out of money because it was not at all what was described. The only positive is the location. Definitely not worth it.

There are positives and negatives to this hotel, but overall we had a pleasant stay and possibly would return. Positives first: + An absolute 5 star location. I'd argue that for doing standard first-time-in-the-city tourist stuff in SF, Fisherman's Wharf is the best place you can be, and a lot more pleasant than staying near Union Square, where the bulk of hotels are. The waterfront is a lovely place to be and gives you a nice respite from the city, and you are within half an hour's walk of a lot of the main tourist attractions - we were even able to walk along the shoreline to the Golden Gate Bridge within 90 minutes. For longer journeys, you're half a block away from the E and F tram lines, which will get you to Market Street (BART, Ferries, etc) within 15 minutes. There is a 7/11, a CVS, and a Safeway all within a block of the hotel, and plenty of restaurants. Very walkable, very handy. + The nautical branding of the hotel is fun and suits the area well, and the games room/outside games are a great little perk if you're travelling with kids. It's obviously a remodeled motel, but it's been done well. + The rooms are modern, with fridge and coffee maker, and those with balconies facing onto the courtyard are particularly good - we had a perfect view of Alcatraz from ours... how many SF hotels would give you that? + Staff were attentive and pleasant, and the check-in/check-out process was painless. But there are a few negatives: - The location has its drawbacks. Fisherman's Wharf is NOT a quiet area and is usually buzzing with tourists and entertainers - do not be surprised if you decide to have a lie-in only to be woken by a Frank Sinatra impressionist crooning badly across the street. Additionally, music is played in the hotel courtyard from 8am, and having a balcony room, this woke us on a few occasions. Overall, don't expect a quiet hotel, expect a funky hotel in a lively area. - Although the room was well-presented overall, the cleaning and maintenance lacked attention to detail. There were a few dusty corners in our room, the countertop in the bathroom was somewhat worn and peeling, the fridge cupboard door didn't shut fully, the TV remote did not work (I noticed that it was of a different brand from the TV), and the desk lamp flickered constantly. If this were a budget hotel, I would have let these things slide, but at a 'four-star' hotel for which we were paying $300 per night, these little niggles were disappointing. Anyone who's ever stayed in a truly perfect or freshly-renovated hotel knows how much a room without little problems can improve your stay. - The air conditioning was strong and effective but is unfortunately located right next to the bed, pointing directly at whoever is sleeping next to it. There were a couple of particularly warm nights during our stay but we couldn't leave it running as one of us would have frozen! - A $25-per-night 'amenity fee' is added to your bill on check-out, and paying it is not optional, no matter how much or little you may have used said amenities. You are told it is to cover the 'complimentary' wi-fi (I think the hotel need to look up the meaning of complimentary), coffee and tea in rooms, games room, fitness centre access, local restaurant discounts, and a whole list of other things which you'd be pleasantly pleased to see included with your hotel room, but rather suck to get charged extra for (especially if you didn't make use of them!). As ours was a long stay, this amenity fee added over $300 to our already high bill on check-out, and this stung somewhat. Why not include it in the up-front price if you need to charge your guests extra for amenities? Just reading this list again (it's available on the Zephyr website), I've realised that the reusable water bottle which we were given at check-in was not in fact a delightful perk, but was included in the amenity fee. Apparently we paid for it. Good job I decided to bring it home. Overall, we did enjoy our stay, but I feel this is a hotel which would benefit from taking a step back for a moment and focusing upon the basics. The games room, campervan breakfast and quirky decor are all very fun, but the cleaning and maintenance of rooms let this down somewhat. Likewise, the location was great (still missing that Alcatraz balcony view!) but warning guests about noise from the local area would save a lot of bad reviews.

I wouldn't stay here again, especially for the high cost. In a nutshell, this hotel is actually a motel that looks pretty in pictures. I assumed there was a massive renovation based on the trendy pics and overall decor but once inside the rooms/ halls, realize they literally just updated the paint and decor to look good in pictures. I'll just list top 5 reasons to not stay here, especially with little kids: 5. AC is right next to the bed and blasts in your face. It also doesn't cool down the room enough when the sun is out so the room gets pretty hot. 4. Parking is $58/night + $8 tax. Almost $65 a night! Rip off. 3. Related to #1, room smelled like old smoke and just old rags. 2. Smallest hotel room I've ever stayed in. 1. Dirty. Outside of changed sheets, everything about the hotel room gave me the creeps. Toilet wasn't thoroughly cleaned. Shower curtain smelled of rags. Any cleaning consists of changing sheets and towels. There was dust and stains in the bathroom which is indicative of the overall hotel. I stayed in a room close to the garbage room and any time I passed, got a whiff of trash. Area to, near parking lot has never been cleaned.
