Stayed three nights and rooms were clean and comfortable. Tiny rooms but nice beds with good pillows and new bathrooms. Public transit is very convenient and we found several nice places to eat after exhausting day of sightseeing.

This 20 unit, two-story motel is well located in the heart of the "Richmond" district in the North part of San Francisco. It is right on one of the main arteries of the city, about five miles outside of downtown SF. City busses run right by. The Presidio and the SF city park are within walking distance. The area is also affectionately known as "Little Chinatown." While there is no food service at the motel, there are dozens of restaurants within a three-block walk, Asian and otherwise. If you plan to go to the Napa region, the Golden Gate Bridge is nearby. There are plenty of grocery stores, drugstores, and other handy shops all around.

The rooms are very clean and well lit. TV service is excellent. Henry Patel, the manager, knows how to be a true host with guests. Henry is extraordinarily helpful with reservations, amenities, and generally will help to make your stay a real pleasure. Air conditioning and heating are basic motel heat-pump units in good condition and reasonably quiet. The motel has been recently renovated and is well maintained. Furniture is well selected and comfortable.

Although SF is one of the most expensive cities to travel in the US, this place has very reasonable rates. Free parking is available on the premises for guests, but is limited in area. However, I've never seen it full, even during "no vacancy" periods.

If you are travelling with children, there are no special things at the motel, such as a swimming pool or playground; but there are recreation spots within walking distance.

Room Tip: Call Henry well in advance for any special requirements you may have.

Despite their policy of accepting cancellations without penalty, we were charged for a night after we cancelled via e-mail. My mistake was not following up with them and assuming that they read their e-mail. Even after I disputed the charge on my credit card they continue to insist that we be charged. It's a shame because my son just moved to S.F. and this was going to be our "go to" spot when we visit him.

I will admit it - I was a bit disappointed when this hotel when I landed on this hotel through a travel bidding site. But when I arrived, it turned out to be surprisingly awesome. The room was a good size, it was right next to the local buses which conveniently go into city center, and it was always clean and well-kept. It was also walking distance to a lot of great places, i.e. Golden Gate Park, which was a big plus. Best of all, it was really cheap - which combined with all the foregoing really makes this a great value.

I booked for 4 nights arriving midday on a flight from Sydney. The manager allowed me into the room which I saw as a room better than many hotels i have stayed in previously. Ok I needed a place near the De Young museum which was an easy 15min walk. The 38 bus gets you downtown in about 20-25min depending on traffic, and the stop is at the door. The friendly people who use the bus add to the public transport experience.I chose the hotel because of the comments on trip advisor. I am more than happy to add my comments now. The hotel was full, (why wouldn't it be), so my sister and friend had to stay downtown in a place twice the price and certainly no where near the cleanliness and comfort of my room.
Anyone needing reasonable priced accommodation shouldn't hesitate to book whilst you can.

Room Tip: I was upstairs in room 211. I'm 74 and easy walked up and down all day. John H

Walking distance to Golden Gate Park - very clean and quiet rooms. Parking is tight but you can get around it. Good location for having a car. Continental breakfast is just coffee and juice and prepackaged muffins.
