Super 8 San Francisco/Near the Marina
Ranked #159 of 230 Hotels in San Francisco
Reviewed September 30, 2009

I stayed at this Super 8 for 3 nights but only because I had booked on the internet and had prepaid. The room was ok.It was clean and everything worked.The staff in the reception area were unfriendly,rude and unhelpful. The reception Area is approx 4 feet square and this is where you have to stand to eat the poor excuse for a breakfast unless you take it back to your room. I have stayed in many Motels all over the USA and this was the worst breakfast yet. The normal Motel breakfast in the US is usually poor but someone here was taking the mickey. (I'm being polite) The Hotel is about 15 minutes from Fishermans Wharfe by bus.You have a 3 min walk to the bus stop which is on Chesnut Street as are most of the shops.Walk down Scott Street.The bus does not run down Lombard Street. On the plus side, the one and only redeeming feature is that the Limited Undercover parking is Free.

Breakfast: terrible. Room: very very small - really disappointing. You'll need a car to go to fishermans wharf and pier 39. Parking: always a surprise (too small garage) - we had to park on the street for 2 days (and its really difficult to park nearby). And the most annoying thing: the manager family kept fighting all the time and cant give you attention! Dont worth it.

This hotel was nothing to rave about the manager seemed uninterested and the room was small. The Hotel is located on a busy stretch of road and can be quiet noisy. The breakfast in the morning is collected from the lobby which is a small booth and then either taken back to your room or to a patio location at the top and rear of the premises. Parking is very limited and its first come first served, no more than 16 spaces, so if you get a space I would leave the car there for your entire stay as it maybe difficult to park close by. The hotels location is good as public transport is only a couple of minutes walk away on the parallel road. It took us an hour to walk from the hotel to Fisherman’s Warf up and down a few hills to give you an idea of distance on foot. As usual Super 8 Prices are hard to beat so if you are on a budget then stay here, the rooms are clean and public transport here runs 24/7.

The check in process is the slowest I have ever experienced in any hotel, and it is not comparable at all to any other Super 8. It took me 20 minutes to check in. We were two couples and they had the same experience on the same day 2 hours earlier.
I checked in at 4 pm, when I got to the room, there were no towels. I asked the staff, and I was told I would get them in an hour, since the hotel had no extra towels, they had to wash the towels of people that had checked out at 11 am, and they were not done yet with washing.
Parking space is very limited and very narrow. You can park only if you have a compact car.
My wife and me, had trouble sleeping at the bed during the night, because the bed was totally uncomfortable.
There were two guys looking over the hotel, if you come accross the young guy, try to avoid him, he is very rude and unhelpful. Ask the other guy who is in his 40's, he was at least nicer.

First of all, this is the Super 8 CLOSEST to Fisherman's Wharf. That does not mean close. It would not be decribed by most people as within walking distance. The rooms are perfectly clean and adequate and the location is good for restaurants, shops, public transport. Breakfast area was a joke - when it opened - which was invariably about an hour later than advertised. The couple running the reception desk were more concerned with looking after their baby, quite rightly some would say, than with running their business. Do not try to book a taxi through the motel. I asked and was amazed to overhear the conversation where the motel reception asked the taxi firm to add $35 on for their cut. We knew the fare should be about $12-$15 so were amazed to be told that it would be $80! Needless to say we declined and got one outside for the $12 we expected to pay to the cruise terminal.
