“Overall, a nice place...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Stayed here for two nights - actually am in the room now leaving the review. Check-in was on a Sunday morning and they let us in early. They were very busy so I was surprised. The location of the hotel is EXCELLENT. Close to everything. You don't need a car at all.

The hotel is clean and in good repair. Having wifi ONLY in the lobby is unacceptable. So, too, is the amount of noise you hear in the rooms from others in the hall, the doors closing, toilets flushing, etc. Unacceptable. I suppose that they get away with it based on where they are located.

B-fast in the morning is good - lots of options. Exercise room is basic and dated. They have two computers available for use a a spot to check-in for flights. There is not shuttle to the airport. Figure on $16-$17 per person, one-way.

I am not sure that I would come back. I think I would find space at the four other hotels in the area if I could be sure it was quieter and wifi was included in the rooms.

Room Tip: Lots of choices for food and beverage in short walking distance. Trolly drops you off 1 block from...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

stayed 2 nights and was very pleased. the hotel is only 2 blocks from the wharf, and a short walk to ghirardelli square. plenty of restaurants, tourist shops, and a walgreens nearby we had a king room that was very spacious, and clean.breakfast was good and had a nice selection.
there is free wifi in the lobby only, free wired internet in the room.
my only issue is that there was no coffee available during the day. other hotels at the same level have coffee 24 hrs. as i am up at 530 am it would be nice to grab a cup of coffee before breakfast is ready, and a cup to relax with when returning from a day of sightseeing.

Come outside and you are right near the pier. My only disappointment is that our room faced a alcove where all rooms share this space and you don 't see outside. Sad
However, the breakfast was good room was very clean, and amenities, were lovely down to the fact we asked for a longer checkout and a luggage stay in their concierge room which they accommodated for us.
Take the shuttle they recommend it was cash at 17 per person.really worth it in this crazy city.
they do add on a tourism associations district tax to your room rate, we did just find booking it on line with holiday inn.

Room Tip: stay on the top floor they do accomodate a lot of families, with small kids strollers etc, you don...

We found the Holiday Inn Express in Fisherman's Wharf to be an excellent value and a great place to stay. The room was very clean which is my #1 priority. The room may not be huge, but you shouldn't be spending alot of time in your room during a vacation anyway. It was certainly large enough for my wife and I. The king bed was comfy. All of the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was more than adequate. The location is amazing.

If you're a Priority Club member, you get a free bottle of water at checkin and also late checkout (14:00) on the last day. Nice touch.

Room Tip: 4th floor, Non-Smoking King was very comfortable and quiet.

Stayed at the hotel for 6 nights and was very impressed. Front desk staff, especially Ady were super friendly and helpful. We booked the basic room and then we realised that they don't have a fridge so I would recommend upgrading if you need one. Rooms are quite spacious and had free cable Internet. Free breaky is a bit hectic but after some cereal, toast and eggs you are ready to start your day! Great location with only a 3 minute walk to Powell -Mason cable car line. Take this line instead of Hyde as loads less people. Get a Muni passport from the kiosk ($28 for a 7 day pass) near the cable car turn around and you are set. Saves you loads of $$ and its $6 each way otherwise! Safeway is two locks away and loads of restaurants close by. Another plug is for Plugz bike hire right next door to the hotel. OMG, I know it sounds strange to ride an electric bike but believe me you will be laughing as you go up the hills to the Golden Gate Bridge while everyone else is puffing. $10 more per day but its so worth it.
You can pay loads more for other hotels in the area but just remember that your going to be spending most of your day out n about. We got a super deal on Webjet and felt like we got our $ worth.
P.s...Quake Super shuttle does door to door from the airport at $17 a head and ask them for a business card for the return which is $13 a person. No mucking about and not loads of stops.

Room Tip: If you need a fridge then go Junior Suite. Our room faced Beach Rd and you can hear general street n...
