Reviewed January 18, 2011

We were MORE than happy with the accommodations here. The room was immaculate, fresh, new feeling, clean and updated. What a find! And the bed was the best ever in any place I've ever stayed, and I have a bad back that knows a bad bed immediately. There's a great little coffee house we loved around the corner for breakfast., Cafe la Forme. Highly recommend this motel. We'll be back.

We drove to SFO to see an art show at the de Young Museum and to have dinner at Scoma's. We wanted a place
.. close to Golden State Park and to Fisherman's Wharf.
.. where we didn't have to wait on (& pay for) valet parking of our car.
.. reasonable, clean, and quiet.
.. outside the confusion of one-way streets and no-left-turns.
.. in a safe neighborhood.
.. AAA discount.
What we got was all this, plus an updated room, i.e., remodeled bath, good bed, nicely decorated, quiet (except for occaisional sirens; it is San Francisco), hair drier, satellite TV, refrigerator, and coffee maker.
The staff was great; they helped with directions, and suggested Hamburger Haven located 3 blocks away. We walked there and got a very good, reasonably priced sit-down-with-locals breakfast.
From the street the motel looks unimpressive; that was okay with us.

I have stayed here a number of times due to the location. One of the employees is cordial but on a recent stay I was treated so rudely by another employee I will nit be back. Having come down with a stomach flu I asked for a cup of tea in the lobby. She refused to open the door saying 'every guest would come in.' I have traveled to many hotels internationally and never before saw such a rude lack of compassion! This person should not work in the hospitality industry

The location was the deciding factor in choosing this motel. Good beds are the best thing along with neat shower cubicles, but it certainly is not a place where you want to spend one extra moment once you have finished getting ready for the day. Parking is a challenge and you will most likely get a spot if you arrive earlier in the evening.

Breakfast was just muffins and coffee. Inconvenient when you have small kids in the travelling party. In our frequent travels, smaller places have managed to provide bagels/toast and cereals alongwith coffee and muffins.

Gets noisy at night and you are left wondering who the other customers are. Our kids just about missed some drunk women falling on them.

The interaction with the very rude lady - it seemed like she owned the place - left us in a bad mood. The other people at the desk are not so bad and are even very helpful. Don’t know if the ‘owner’s’ bad behavior is coming from the arrogance due to the fact that customers will come to the place anyway for the location.

We certainly will never return there ever. Overall it is advisable to stay away if you are travelling with kids. Suitable if your only consideration is location and budget and you don’t mind risking some rude interaction with the super rude lady.

We loved this Motel. It is inexpensive (very), the newly and nicely redone rooms are small but efficient (even granite shower stalls), the king mattress was better than the Hilton's, and they even have a high quality coffee machine in the office area. We were visiting the DeYoung and other museums which were just a few blocks away. Geary is a main artery and easy to get around on. The neighborhood is in an almost all Asian part of SF, so expect that almost all walking distance restaurants are Asian. The neighborhood is not the best, but we felt safe walking around after dark. The front desk staff are friendly but not overly so. The only negative is that parking a large SUV in the narrow parking spots was a challenge.

This is the place to be for someone looking for a clean comfortable room. Close to UCSF Medical center. All the rooms have coffee, dish network tv, small fridge, WIFI and comfortable beds. Free parking was an excellent bonus. Henry was a fantastic host and made sure we were well taken care of. Discounts for UCSF Medical patients were a perfect topper. I can't say enough about the place.
Thanks Henry for making a tough time easier.

While the motel itself is clean and welcoming, the neighborhood gave us an uneasy feeling; usually I respect my fellow lodgers and do not set the alarm on my car in a motel, but could not do so here.
As previously mentioned, there was a strong odor of industrial cleaner / insect repellant, which as long as it does the job of keeping the roaches away I do not mind too much.
The one major downside to our room was the 'crime scene" we found in our bath room. Blood was smeared in two places on the wall by the shower.
Sadly, we did not notice it until the next morning otherwise I'm sure the staff would have cleaned it if we had asked. However, it did bring into question the thoroughness of the cleaning staff.
The motel's proximity to the museum was the deciding factor in our choice, next time we will stay in the Van Ness area and drive 5 more minutes to the museum.
