We visited in early May 2007. This place turned out to be a good base
if you're okay with walking. (There was a bus stop nearby and cable car lines were a couple of blocks away, if you like that better.) It was only a few blocks to the Fisherman's Wharf area and not too far a walk to Chinatown. Our room faced Columbus Ave. It was a clean and quiet place, and the room was big with a small balcony. The front desk staff were courteous and helpful and offered to book tours for us, and offered dining tips. It's not in the main vicinity of Fisherman's Wharf. It was far enough to be out of the noise and bustle, but close enough to walk there quickly. It was a good location for the majority of the Fisherman's wharf attractions.

Granted, this is a wonderfully cheap hotel, but you really do get what you pay for. We had a suite for 3 nights and found it to be ok, except that the interior was horrribly outdated and the room could have used a really good cleaning. We found hair in several places throughout the room. They weren't ours, either.

Im not sure if this experience is different in the non-suite rooms. I use the term "suite" loosely, because I think we only paid about $130 per night. It was a small room. It just happened to have to small bedrooms.

The good:

Excellent price
Excellent location
FREE parking

The Bad:

Outdated 70's decor
Questionable cleaning practices
Old, unformortable beds.

So, in this case, the price does match the quality. If you value the luxuries of life, this is not the place for you. But, if you're looking for a cheap place in a good location, I would still recommend this hotel.

this inn is close to fishermans warf and has free parking. the rooms are what you would find in an average motel. they were clean but nothing to write home about. overall a good deal in an area filled with overpriced hotels.

Wife and I stayed 3 nights, 17, 18, 19 May, room 307. Very clean. Reasonable rates. Noah at front dsk very helpful and friendly. Room was on side of motel away from Columbus Ave, (was asked preference upon checking in.) Great view of Coit tower and Transamerica building, cathedral. Easy walk to Fisherman's Wharf, and lots of restaurants down Columbus toward downtown. Bus stop right outside the parking lot. Motel is one block from a cable car line in one direction, 2 blocks away in opposite. Covered free parking was a big plus. Lombard street section that all the tourists want to see is a couple blocks to the west, but uphill. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.
