“Excellent value”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

An excellent value for money hotel in 15 minutes' walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf. Clean spacious rooms and exceptionally helpful staff. Edgar and Irene will go the extra mile to make sure you have a good stay. Parking is free and there are several places to eat locally. However stay away from Bobo's opposite unless you want a big hole in your wallet. Not noisy despite location on main road. We had room at the back. Such good value we decided to re- book for when we fly home.

We used the Big Bus to tour the area. Don't get a 48 hour pass as it isn't suitable for commuting around the city. Tour guides are very good however.

Only problem with our room was that the TV repeatedly needed resetting to get a good picture

Room Tip: Room at the back not noisy though no view either.

With free airfare to San Francisco our search was on for a reasonable hotel. After weeding through several I came across Lombard Inn. We are not high end people so a basic hotel is our first choice with location coming in a close second. Lombard met our needs and exceeded them. The location was perfect as we are walkers and enjoy being able to stroll the city to see it up close. We walked from one end to the other during our week long stay. Transit worked well for farther distances. We rented a car for our last too days and the free parking here was great. Having a coffee maker in the room was also perfect as we didn't come across many close coffee shops. Eva's beside us was closed the first couple of days so we did without café bought coffee until we were farther afield. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. A microwave would have been nice but not necessary. Our view was of a wall but that made it quiet which is important to us. The staff was accommodating and helpful. Overall we enjoyed our stay and will stay at the Lombard again.

They should definitely spruce up the exterior of this hotel as it doesn't look that great from the outside but once you're in its lovely. A little dated but the rooms were very large and comfortable.

Good value for money and in a good location in the city. The front desk staff were also good fun and extremely helpful when we needed some advice.

This place looks like any simple motel from the outside, plain and dull. The rooms, however, are every spacious and comfortable. Our room had enough space for 2 double beds, coffee table, large tv and even a small balcony watching the street. The mattress was extremely good! Felt like the foam mattress I have back home and I had a very good sleep at night. It is located in a cool area of San Francisco, next to Union and Filmore streets, with a lot of nice restaurants, bars and a total feeling of vacations. Also, the Fort Mason area and Ghirardeli square are very close by. The covered parking is an extra feature that is always good while you're in the city! We just stayed here for the night and had to leave very early in the morning, but we were definitely happy with our choice in that place.

Room Tip: Room 108- great mattress!

Better than it looks on the internet, clean tidy comfy room.smooth fast check in. We picked this hotel for its location to all the sights the open top bus tour has a stop on this road. We also needed free parking a premium in san Francisco, again fitted the bill. We had a view of the Golden Gate Bridge from our balcony (over the roof tops ) but a good view. The only thing stoping me giving 10 out of 10 was no breakfast. But we did get free room coffee. If you want cost v location ideal.

Room Tip: Top floor front has bridge views but some traffic noise but you are in a city

I have stayed here two times because the location is good, you can go walking to the Fisherman's Wharf and Columbus avenue, or go up hill to the crookedest street (Lombard). The hotel is old but clean and comfortable. On a clear day you can see the Golden Gate from the rooms facing Lombard St. If you only need the hotel to sleep and get a bath, this is a good place to stay. Unfortunately, the hotel does not have a restaurant, so take this into consideration. We had our breakfast at the Chestnut Diner, a block away on Chestnut St., and then we could just walk or take the bus (30 or 47) and get on our way.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Lombard St. can be noisy from the traffic. If you are a light sleeper, take this into c...

Great place to stay. Irene at the front desk was very helpful when we needed to extend our stay. Thank you, Irene. There are two café/restaurants right beside it. One street over on Chestnut was a wonderful breakfast/lunch café. Great food. Request a back room as the front rooms get all the traffic noise.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are the best. No street noise.
