“Good Deal for the Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

I searched Trip Advisor before our trip to San Francisco and was not disappointed. The rooms were nice, the staff was nice, and the location was good. It's located across the street from a Mel's -which was a fun restaurant. It's also located next to tons of other food venues. It's not really close to the Pier's, so you'll probably have to pay for parking, but that didn't bother us. Overall, it was a fine experience.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper, try to get a room that doesn't face Lombard Street

Met a friend for a three day get together, and she located this hotel. Clean, fabulous location on US 101 (Lombard) Street, close to everything! Very reasonably priced, as well. An older place, no fancy lobby, and we never went into the attached restaurant. Mel's Diner is right across the street, and we had fabulous breakfasts there at very reasonable prices.

Room Tip: The road noise in the front on Lombard Street are a little noisy, but I still slept!

Great room in a fabulous location. I don't want to stay near tourist things. Saw a lot of young families in the neighborhood. Very friendly and helpful staff. Room was huge with 2 queen beds and a nice love seat. Windows opened fully to let in the cool breeze. It is noisy with the windows open but that's expected when you are in a big city. Free and easy parking. Best selection of restaurants in San Fran all within walking distance. Lots and lots of restaurants to choose from. Free wifi. Easy access to the Golden Gate Bridge. Stayed here with wife and three kids. No pool if your looking for one.

I booked the suite here by calling the number in the AAA book. For my family of 5, a suite is cheaper and what a beautiful one it was. It was really a 2 bedroom condo with 2 full baths and full kitchen--just amazing. We only had 2 days to visit. The hotel is located near numerous restaurants and parking was free. We took a bus tour so I can't say if the location is good or not. We did walk all the way from the wharf back to our hotel. I would definitely stay there again if I ever get back.

Room Tip: Get a suite if you can afford it.

We booked in here after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor but ended up moving to it's sister hotel in North Beach near the pier after one night. It seems that it's in a good location for some people but for us it was too far away from the main neighbourhoods like North Beach, Nob Hill and had limited access to those areas. It is however a short walk away from the Marina if that's where you want to be.

The room was fine but you could hear the Ice machine in the hallway (same as it's sister hotel Columbus) which you could hear from the room, so it was a little noisy.

Clean and updated. Parking below which is really necessary if you are driving. There are dozens of places to eat and shop within just a couple of blocks. We rode the bus and drove and found getting around San Francisco to be quite easy.

Our room was on the second floor looking out to the six-lane street below. There was noise but that is to be expected given the location.

We've stayed here before. And while we loved the location on our first stay, the hotel was rather dated. Well, they upgraded the beds, carpet and bathroom amenities in these very spacious rooms. Still the same free parking and a location that is hard to beat. Overall it's a great value in San Francisco! No pool, but the Bay Watch Restaurant downstairs was a good value for breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for a bridge view from the third floor! Well worth it and makes the room much quieter.
