“Convenient Hotel for visiting San Francisco.”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We stayed at this Day's Inn for four nights in August 2013. We had booked via the internet from the UK in late June and even then it was nearly fully booked, being so popular. It was perfectly adequate for our needs as we were on the sightseeing trail. Free parking was available on a first-come, first served basis, although there are not enough spaces for the whole hotel. The hotel is situated on a trolleybus route which goes to Market Street and is only a five minute walk to the bus stop for the bus direct to Fishermans Wharf. The rooms are, out of necessity, fairly cramped as the site is very compact but all facilities are present including a jacuzzi-type bath. I am not sure how secure the ground floor rooms are, although we had no problem I would have been happier if there had been a safe in the room.
Breakfast is a very basic 'help yourself and back to the room' affair, provided in the corner of the small hotel lobby. There were a number of very good restaurants within a few minutes walk, very much away from the tourist trail.
The staff were all friendly and helpful, the prices were not cheap but certainly not excessive for a SFO hotel. My only gripe was the shouting, noise, banging and crashing from some inconsiderate guests at 2am each night. It did not help that we were on the ground floor and the walls and ceilings are not very soundproof.
All in all, It was a good place to stay, away from the main tourist area, convenient for the Opera House and Civic Centre etc. and I would recommend it.

Room Tip: Probably a room at the top will be quieter and possible more secure.

Days Inn is convenient to public transportation. My room was clean and very nice. The elevators are really heavy.
