I was on a week long road trip through California and I had a two night stay in San Francisco. I price lined my hotel and I was given surf motel. I immediately got on and got really scared of the reviews.i stayed on a Tuesday and Wednesday night.
I was greeted when I got there by a very nice helpful girl and I was placed on the 3rd floor in a king bed room. I immediately went up to check for things wrong with the room. After my initial check for bed bugs and things wrong came up empty handed I brought my traveling partner and luggage up. The elevator is old. The building is quite old. The outside of the motel is upkept. The rooms although on the smaller side was fine for the price we paid. The bed was quite firm but it was bug free!
Things that could be better. The toilet we had to hold down the handle for about ten seconds to make sure it flushed. This was thoroughly annoying. The shower curtain should have been replaced as it was starting to grow mold. The towels also need to be replaced they are thin and threadbare. Bring your own towel. The outside door needs to have a better sound barrier. The traffic at one point sounded like I was sleeping on a street corner. The door to the elevator slams shut unless you make sure to close it quietly this echos into the motel. The wifi sucked. It was so slow it wasn't even worth getting on.
Pros about this hotel.. Location! It is close to multiple bus lines that take you to many destinations in the city. It is close to a shopping area in the marina district. It also has a Mel's diner and an ihop within walking distance :-)
I'm not sure I would reccomend this motel to others perhaps unless it had a bit of a renovation.
