Chelsea Motor Inn
Ranked #74 of 230 Hotels in San Francisco
Reviewed July 2, 2014

We were concerned about noise at a busy intersection, as I am a light sleeper. The front desk suggested a king room with a rollaway, as the rooms with two beds all face the street. We did not have a view fro our interior room, but the room was very quiet. It was close to transportation and restaurants and the free parking was great. The City Map available at the front desk was great and showed all the Muni bus routes. The hotel is very clean, the WIFI worked fine for us, and we probably would not consider another hotel when visiting San Franciscon in the future.

The Chelsea Motor Inn is good value and in a great location. I was recommended to use it by my brother and sister-in-law, particularly for its free parking. This was the first stop on a wonderful California road trip, and was a great start to the journey

We did not expect a lot when we booked our stay here. Free wi-fi, free parking, prime location, easy access to restaurants, grocery shops and bus facilities, very clean rooms and good service. As another person has mentioned the decor is a little outdated, but it was not an issue at all. Recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay comfortably on a budget.

We stayed here three nights while in San Francisco. The hotel is well situated, rooms are large and clean and the parking is onsite. We had a room facing the back of the hotel, so noise wasn't an issue. Lots of restaurants nearby. Bus stops close by. WiFi reception was sketchy at times. All in all, a good place to stay for the price. Staff was very helpful.

Just leaving here today after 3 night stay. Rooms very large and very clean. Decor little dated but who stays here and sits in the room all day?? Local to all amenities and plenty of bars and restaurants close by. All staff really helpful but special mention to Mohammed who helped us book trips and shuttle to airport. Would def recommend to others.

stayed here for 2 nights in april, rooms are ok i found them very dark and the noise is so bad we had a room over the main road ' lombard street ' and asked if we could move to another room but was told no. the windows are so thin and the traffic is crazy its the main road to the golden gate bridge. the motel is out a little from the main buzz, but the streets around are nice with little coffee shops etc tho there are a lot of homeless/drunk people around. take a 10 minute walk down towards the bridge and you get the best views around tho for the 2 days we where there the fog covered the golden gate the whole time and if you drive over it mae sure you pay the toll where you pay is another thing other wise you will be hit with a nice fine from your car hire company.
all in all the motel is fine for price apart from not sleeping with the noise but who needs sleep !!!

Room Tip: get a room to the side streets or back of motel
