“Can't beat it for the price!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2011

Although it is off the beaten path in San Francisco, we loved the Geary Parkway Motel. The room was very clean, the bathroom was new and the bed was super comfy. We could get a bus right outside on Geary and it is a 20 minute ride to downtown. The neighborhood was safe and we walked to breakfast eateries and a great french bistro for dinner.

For the price and being in the city, I expected a crapped room. Not! Our room was as spacious as any average hotel room you would encounter in the suburbs. I expected outdated and worn decor. Not! Very modern and up to date furnishings, very clean, granite shower walls, modern bath fixtures. Only noticed that the wood furniture was a little scuffed and a little marred. Henry at the front desk called us at home twice before our arrival to make certain of a detail regarding our reservations. He was as cordial, friendly and helpful as you could want. We had no problems parking in the motel lot directly in front of our room. There are perhaps half as many parking spaces as there are rooms, but this is not too bad since many travelers may not have a vehicle in the city anyway. It is reasonably close to nationally recognized medical facilities and physicians and will definitely be the place we stay when traveling to SF for medical care again. The room (close to the front, bottom floor) was noisy when we arrived in the afternoon, but Henry assured us it would quite down by the time we went to bed and it did. Comfortable bed. We were very pleasantly surprised in every way. Just skip the breakfast!

Room Tip: Ask for room away from street.

My friends and I checked into the Geary Parkway Motel after completing the San Francisco Bay Area 3-Day for the Cure. Although the room was small for 4 women with 2 pieces of luggage apiece, it was a great place to stay. Wonderful bathroom! Comfortable beds. Quiet and a short walk to Golden Gate Park - about 4-5 blocks. Several blocks up Geary is a cute coffee shop for breakfast. Although we cabbed it pretty much everywhere, there is a bus stop on the corner. There is also a couple of car rental locations a few blocks up the road. All in all, this was a great value for San Francisco.

I just can't believe why there are people saying good things to this Motel. It's cold in the room and internet doesn't work at some time. Staff are SO rude! In the morning when we checked out, he yelled at us and said the 'F' word just because we knocked on his door when he is SLEEPING!
That is the worst hotel I ever lived in.

Rooms were very clean and updated. Beds were first class with crisp, ironed sheets. (As good as the downtown Mariott we had just vacated - too many $$$$.) Coffee, Tea, Hot Cocoa and Juice available all day. Light continental breakfast. Lots of lighting. We don't watch much TV when we vacation and always look for good lighting to read by. Parking is at a minimum (but free), but there is plenty of free overnight parking on the street. There is a bus stop right in front of the motel. Takes you right down Geary to the beach. On the other side of Geary the bus takes you right downtown (and all the stops in between.) A long-ish walk to Goldengate Park, or a short walk to 6th and Geary and a bus takes you to the Park. Very easy to get anywhere. Lots of places to eat. A very fun diner, Hamburger Haven, on Clement St, (one street behind motel) has great breakfast and the Clement Street Bar & Grill has great food and a neighborhood atmosphere. Henry, at the front desk, was very helpful, kind and accomodating with any questions for directions that we had. We will definitely choose this place for return trips.

We chose this motel because it is close to where our son and daughter-in-law live but trust me, we had our doubts. From the photo on their web site and the economical rates, we knew it would be "modest" but we wanted to be close to the kids while visiting.

We were very pleasantly surprised. Our room had been recently remodeled and it was clean, comfortable and even nice. A very comfortable bed!

A good rate is no good if it's a bad place but the Geary Parkway Motel made saving money quite nice. We saw other travelers just like ourselves there, and that increases your comfort.

A bus route in front of the motel made it easy to get downtown and other places. And the manager (quite nice) helped us arrange transportation to the airport.

Bottom line: we'll stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a remodeled room! I'm not sure if they are all. Ours was and it was very nice.
