Value
Situated next to the quiet, scenic surroundings of Sutro Heights Park and Land's End, we are located away from the noisy downtown traffic and crowds, yet still in the city in a resort-like location. We are just a block up the hill from the historic Cliff House and a few steps further to miles of beach along Ocean Beach. We are the closest hotel to the VA hospital and near the SF Medical Center. Our spacious guest rooms, many of which have excellent park and ocean views, provide our guests with many amenities including cable TVs, mini-fridges, coffee makers, microwaves, ironing boards, and hair dryers. Other hotel amenities include free high-speed Wi-Fi, complimentary but limited covered parking, a private patio, ping pong and badminton. For those without cars, there is the 38 bus stop on the corner. All our guest rooms are non-smoking and some with fireplaces. So if you are ready to try something different in San Francisco then consider us as your home away from home along San Francisco's ocean front.

The morning person by the name of Thaddeus needs to brush up on his social skills. He did not greet me or say thank you at any time and I felt like I was bothering him. I've stayed at this hotel for over 40 years and this is the first time a clerk was rude to me. On the other hand the night clerk was especially helpful and courteous. I can't remember his name but he was age 27 and a perfect example of an employee that is top of the line.

Dear Florissant01, I am sorry that our staff did not provide you with the best customer service. I have already spoken with Thaddeus. He is new to San Francisco having moved from Georgia. He is unfamiliar with the City and directions and has a steep learning curve to overcome. With the departure of Rick and Seth, long-standing members of the Rock family, there will be bumps and setbacks during the transition. I know how important it is to see a familiar face. Know that the same family operates the Rock and that we do care about our loyal customers. We thank you for your patronage and hope to see you again. With our best regards, Bobby Elam General Manager

This is a cozy older motel with updated bathrooms, comfortable beds and ocean view. The attached restaurant is homey with three walls of windows.. Right across from Lands End trail. We had a wonderful hike along the coast before the storm hit. We watched a storm push powerful waves and rain as we savored an excellent breakfast.

Hi. I stayed with my family in a family room, overlooking the ocean. There was a kitchenette and parking! Even on New Year's Eve late at night there was parking! The room was quiet and large. Absolutely no complaints at all. It looked like the courtyard had lots of activities for families staying in the summer, like badminton and volleyball, but it was quiet in the winter. Right across the street are hiking trails, sutro heights - you could spend an entire vacation just hiking in this neighborhood. Staff was very nice and the diner seemed to be populated with locals.
