"Keep on driving" was the title of a review we read before booking this motel, through a Southwest Airlines vacation package, and we should have taken heed. The service was practically nonexistent. We ran out of toilet paper just two hours after the maid cleaned the room and had to go to the office to ask for more. No coffee was left in the room until our third day there. Of course the management has to keep expenses down, but enough is enough. I never expect much from motel continental breakfasts, but their lineup was the meagerest I've witnessed, and their frugality includes offering muffins that have been torn into random pieces. One can only imagine that this is so they can make use of guests' leftovers. What's more, some mornings there were no tongs available with which to transfer these bits onto a paper plate. The breakfast buffet is in the small office of the motel so food must be carried back to the room for consumption. My husband and I booked a "jacuzzi suite." The room furnishings were old and dilapidated: ancient TVs with only basic cable (and only one remote for the two TVs in our suite), old-style shiny bedspreads that seemed crusty, etc. There was barely room to walk between the bed and the TV. There was no iron in the room, and the hair dryer worked for only a minute or so at a time. The jacuzzi was a lawsuit waiting to happen, as guests must exit the tub via slick faux marble stairs. The room had an unpleasant odor at times. I did not dare walk on the carpet without shoes on. This motel does not have interior corridors, so safety is an issue. And it is noisy, even though our room was one of the farthest back from the street. The location is fine--though including Fisherman's Wharf in the name is misleading, as it is not in the Wharf/Cannery Row area. Keep on driving.
