“Great Location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

This hotel was in the perfect location to see and walk to quite a bit in SF including Union Square (although a cable car is just a block away in you don't want to walk), Marina area, the Ferry Building, Financial District, the Wharf, and China Town. The beds were extremely comfortable as were the pillows. Great and friendly staff. I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is a few minutes walk from Pier 39, the Alcatraz ferry, grocery stores and plenty of public transport. The rooms are comfortable and the staff I met were very friendly, polite and helpful. I'd definitely stay here again.

We arrived late and were made to feel so special. I will say ALL from the young girl who checked us in to the valet that helped with our luggage at 4 am to leave. The room was clean, the room service breakfast was beautiful and delicious.Wine was a wonderful touch.Great location.

This hotel is at a great location on Fishermans Wharf. Parking is expensive, $45 a night! And no free continental breakfast. This hotel was one of our most expensive Best Western's and we got less than others half the price. But the hotel staff are great!

Hi Judy W - Thanks for staying with us and for taking the time to share your comments. I'm glad you liked the hotel and staff. Often times great deals and promos can be found on line which include discounted room rates and free parking. I know SF can be quite expensive; however, the Tuscan is probably the best value throughout the Fisherman's Wharf area. We hope to see you again!

This was a brilliant Best Western in a perfect location. The rooms were immaculate and the staff all very friendly. The coffee in the morning was a good bonus and the wine hour in the evening was very nice. Was very cozy and warm upon returning from the cold San Francisco night.

This will niw be my SF go-to. Bed was very comfy, room and bsth reasonable size. Though nearby Sheratin, Hyatt, Hilton have more common areas and nicer in-room toiletries, this Best Western is otherwise comparable but less expensive. Plus they accept dogs; mine not w me on this trip.

We stayed at the Tuscan Inn for a business conference. It was very clean and the staff was friendly and courteous. The rooms was on the small side, with a view of a wall but the proximity to Fisherman's Wharf couldn't be beat.
