I am actually still at the motel. But I have stayed long enough to give my impressions.
A great price for the location and quality. I walked to fisherman wharf to have dinner. About a 25 minute walk. I have a bad back, but it was an easy walk. The neighborhood seems nice. I walked back to my motel at dusk and at no time did I feel apprehensive. and I am a 63 year old man who would be a perfect target for the wrong sort of crowd. I am on the second floor sitting by the window facing van ness (a main street). It is 10 pm and I can't hear any street sounds. I either am in a room without any neighbors, or the insulation is very good. The check in lady was very nice and helpful.
There is no tub, just shower. OK with me as I am a shower person. There is complementary shampoo and conditioner but no lotion. I think you can get a refrigerator for a fee. I like to have one, just to keep drinks cold, but there is an ice machine down the hall. Bathroom clean, as is the linens and the room. Nice flat screen tv, a lot of channels. No microwave, but again, I don't use one. I have a king bed, dresser, night stand, heating and cooling, Free parking. Wireless is a bit slow, but works fine.
So, for $86, and walking distance to the warf,, I think it is a very excellent motel and a very reasonable price. If it cost more, then I would go down the street, but too often, you find a place that is a reasonable price, but it is shabby and in a bad part of town. So, if you need more perks, tub, lotion, I am not sure if it has a breakfast (although, I think they are silly and never use them. I am never on such a budget that I have to settle for a couple of rolls etc.). But, if you wand microwave, refrigerator, and whatever perks, go down the street and pay more, after all this is a tourist destination and the bigger hotels charge more and I don't think they offer too much more. This is perfect for me. I will be coming back with my grand kids over Easter and will stay here. I come down often to go to the VA and this will be on the top of my list. I recommend this to family, friends, and anyone reading this.
