“Budget Friendly & Clean”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

This motel is in Pacific Heights and close to everything. It is an older property and as such is showing some wear and tear. The rooms are clean, with updated TV, baths, microwave ovens and refrigerators. The parking is free. It is walking distance to some very nice restruants.

Everyone knows,or you can imagine,that S.F. is an expensive place to be, and therefor the Inn o.B. was a good choice for us. The room was clean, the receptionist was doing her job and the parking was free - you really do not need a car in S.F. not least because it is almost impossible to find a free parking space. Our first night was not so great,because it was so noisy - mostly because of partying people,and someone a floor up was constantly walking around (really annoying) - the following nights was just the traffic noise and the "sleepwalker". ;-) But hey, the Inn o.B. is a great spot to start exploring the city: public traffic, best breakfast bagels, shops,restaurants,...within walking distance. And believe me, earplugs can work miracles.

Reservation was taken over phone.. It was quick, painless and fuss free.

When we arrived, our rooms were ready for us.. We spent little time filling up forms. It was all prepared before hand - including the card keys and wireless access codes. I was pleasantly surprised to see all these done. The receptionist was friendly and efficiently. We had free parking too.

The rooms were spacious with two queen size beds. There was adequate amenities and the large Samsung flat TV loaded with a huge number of channels.

The location is great to public access with restaurants lacing Polk street one block away.

Whhhhhats up! I m a 25yr old guy from Pa and I just stayed in this hotel 12/7/12-12/12/11/12 and it was the best for the price. The room had two nice beds and a plasma sumsung with Comcast (bunch of channels). A friend and I stayed here after traveling from from San Diego to Oakland and then to SF. I admit the elevator is real shady but it's only 3 stories u can use the steps!! The bathroom was nice, shower pressure was above average, a tile was missing from the sink but i heard them renovating next door so they're probably updating soon. The cleaning ladies are always ready to clean the room. It's not a five star hotel but Its in the middle of a lot of stuff and there are bars on Van Ness which were awesome. Parking was fine at the building. It cost $10 to catch a cab to Fishermans Warf/ $7 to broadway&coloumbus / $20 to the mission district. You can walk to a lot of things but get ready these hills are insane!!!! Bottom line this is the place to stay if you wanna ball on a budget and have a secure place. Place was ALOT nicer than the reviews!!!

Room Tip: Room 219 baby!!!!

Ok... so Van Ness Avenue is noisy. The constant drone of daytime and evening traffic is not the problem... it's the 3am dump trucks, fire engines and street sweepers that will wrench you from the arms of Morpheus.

However... If you can get a room 3 or 4 back from the road (and not overlooking Broadway), you'll probably be fine. I was initially in a room on the Van Ness end and it was dire. I asked to be moved and the receptionist was happy to oblige, moving me to a room about 4 from the end, and it was MUCH better.

Also, if you turn on the air con, you might notice a faint urine smell. I thought someone had pee'd on the air inlet, but later discovered (when I changed rooms) this is the smell of the carpet 'freshener'.

The location (Pacific Heights) is great. Very safe and charming, with a regular bus service right out front, a great brunch diner on the corner and the cool neighbourhood area of Polk St and Union St (rather upmarket) each a short walk away.

I was in town on the busiest weekend of the year and was left with limited options for reasonably priced accommodation. I made a good choice (once I'd moved rooms).

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room in the northern wing (where the reception is) and at least 3 units from the...

I have stayed at this clean and comfortable hotel over the past few years. It's ALWAYS CLEAN and very convenient to the night life and public transportation. They have free parking too.

I usually stay here for Business and recommend it to friends that don't want to pay $400.00 and up in SF.

The manager Rahil, does a great job to make sure you have a good stay.

This hotel is what I expected. It had a refridgerator and a microwave, the shower was nice. The bed wasn't all that great but I've had worse. The floor was squeaky but that's ok. The room was clean. Staff was friendly. I would stay here again.
