This is the best hotel I ever stayed in the U.S. and the price is very reasonable.
There's nothing I can complain about this inn. It has parking lot, elevator (although it's slow), spacious & clean room and bathroom(with good shower). Free Wifi is very useful.
It's located in the middle of Lombard street, so waking distance to The palace of fine art and the famous Lombard/Hyde conjunction. There's bus station to union square and fisherman's wharf.

There's very good breakfast store on the way to the Palace of fine arts.

Room Tip: The hotel is facing the street but it's not noisy at all

Even after reading all the great reviews on this hotel I was surprised at how big and clean the rooms were. Several times a day we would see an employee sweeping out the garage of the hotel-made a good impression since that is the first area you see. The staff was very friendly and the location was great for restaurants. I would recommend this hotel to anyone unless you need a pool or workout room.

Room Tip: We were on the front corner of the building and yes you can hear the traffic but we were in the city...

The hotel looks a bit inspiring from outside but is lovely inside. Clean, spacious and comfortable rooms. Our room overlooked Lombard but didn't notice any noise from traffic. The front desk staff are very helpful and friendly. The hotel is in a safe area, just out of town but within easy walking distance. There is a handy corner shop opposite and restaurants, including the excellent Home Plate for breakfast, nearby. An airport shuttle can be arranged and there are links to public transport on Lombard.

We requested a quiet room and got one facing the small back street, away from busy Lombard/101. The king room was spacious, clean, updated. Bathroom was large and updated with big vanity. Covered parking is included. Breakfast is not included but the Motel is only a couple of blocks from the restaurants on Chestnut and Union. Several grocery stores in walking distance also. It's an ideal location for walking or taking the excellent public transportation system.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back.

We booked this hotel after a relative had stayed there seven years ago. We were totally delighted with this place. The price was right and it was within walking distance of shops and restaurants. I had requested a quiet room and had one overlooking a back street but at least it was quiet. We were only in the room long enough each day to sleep. The front desk employees went above and beyond to answer any tourists questions and to recommend restaurants. The room was huge and well decorated. No complaints at all. It appears that the hotel had been recently renovated and it was well maintained. The free parking was a bonus as well especially in the heart of downtown San Francisco.

We were so surprised. To be honest, I didn't expect much because it looked fairly blank from the outside and the room pictures seemed quite uninspiring. The location is great not only if you have a car to trot around SF in but also to venture about on foot. Mind you, the driving is so easy in town I thoroughly recommend getting a car if you're there for a few days or more. We were able to come home in the evening to wander the streets and find good food to eat along the way. Not far from the fabulous water of the bay or the now dreaded Fisherman's Cove (boy, has that area changed and become a tourist shark). So the location is good, free parking is found under the hotel (a huge bonus and much appreciated but can be a bit of a squeeze some days) and the room was huge and well appointed. It had all we needed and a lovely table and chairs in the bay section overlooking the streets and Golden Gate Bridge to the left. Originally we had asked to switch rooms for something quieter when we discovered that we would be above Lombard Street - no luck - they were full. We needn't have worried, the insulation was so good that we weren't disturbed one bit. A great place where we shall return when in SF next, for sure.

Ditto what everyone has previously said. Everything was great--my only recommendation would be to provide more sleeping pillows or choice of a firmer pillow. Although the mattresses were very comfortable, the pillows were not and I found it hard to sleep with them. I was with my husband and children and we all had the same sentiment on this.
