“Not worth it”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

My gf and I decided to spend New Year's Eve 2013 in San Francisco and went with the Country Hearth Inn. Total was $145 for New Year's Eve, so we didn't think it was terrible. It's location is very convenient, near the presidio, cow hollow and a quick bus ride to a lot of bars on Union St. The MUNI is free on New Year's Eve!

Our room was pretty standard, but right away the sheets felt dirty. After laying in them for about an hour, sure enough I felt a few things crawling on me. I thought it was my imagination at first, but when I got up to check I had a bite on my eye. After dusting the sheets off we had an ok sleep. The parking is free and first come first serve.

Probably wont stay here again,

Not what I call an upsacle hotel but it provided the basics. Contenental breaklast included fruit, patry coffee, juice as part of the cost. A fridge was in the room but you had to pay extra $3. fif you want to use it...we passed. No coffee maker or microwave in room either. Carpets was kind of dirty. Neighbourhood location okay. Limited parking available. Close to some SF attractions and about a 15-20 minute bus ride to fisherman's wharf, china town, etc. Bus stop about a 5 to 10 minute walk from hotel. Staff was friendly. An okay hotel, nothing fancy.

Stayed at this motel for 2nights while visiting San Fran. Very good location right off Lombard street. Close access to Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf, short drive to Sausito. Room was a good size. Clean. Owners were friendly, let us park in the lot even though it was full due to our late check-in. Highly recommend for location.

We stayed at the Country Hearth Inn in SF in May to attend a wedding nearby. Another couple also rented a room there at the same time. This was billed on our May credit card statement.
On our August credit card the same room charge appeared again. Not only that, but the other couple also had similar double billing.
We called AMEX to file a claim and they quickly credited our account.
I find a room charge appearing twice over several months, especially for two different people and different cards, to be rather disturbing. I wonder if this has happened to others.
I will never consider staying at the Country Hearth Inn in SF again.

Room Tip: The big issue was the double billing so I would not recommend any room.. If you still decide to go...

This motel feels a bit tired and although our room was clean, it felt old & tired. Carpet around the edge of the room was loose and the door to the bathroom had a very loud squeal that just about would have woken everyone in the complex. We did ask that they oil it & the next day it was better, but surprised it hadn't been picked up prior to us mentioning it. Staff were helpful in suggesting buses into town & we were thankful for free parking also. Good venue, with buses nearby for getting to Fisherman wharf, Union Sq etc.

Conveniently located in the Marina district, the Presidio, Golden Gate Bridge, and Marina are nearby. We walked all the way down to Fisherman's Wharf from the hotel. Parking is very limited but we got lucky with a parking spot. The room is very basic but large, clean and adequate especially for that price. They charge a small fee to unlock/use the mini-fridge. Breakfast is very limited with coffee, juice, fruit, muffins, and danishes. There is a Walgreen's within walking distance which was a plus to get snacks.

By San Francisco standards, rather cheap, yet the room was perfectly comfortable and clean. Ample continental breakfast. A block brings you to where you can hike through the Presidio. A short drive brings you to a parking lot next to the G.G. Bridge; walk across to get some great photo ops. Bed comfortable. Warning: Limited parking.
