We found the hotel to be a bargain for touring San Francisco. Stayed 2 nights and found the staff very friendly and the hotel very nice and clean. The area is very nice too and has convenient restaurants across the street. The ferry to San Francisco is very close too, but we opted to drive in - leaving early to avoid the crowds. Also - the ferry (on weekends) leaves too late and comes back too early. No parking fee either which is a bonus. Would highly recommend this to people who don't mind driving in to San Francisco. Muir Woods is close by too which is a beautiful place to visit.
