“Beautiful veiw!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

This is our second time staying here. We love how economical the hotel is, however, very clean!! We walked to the wharf and it was not bad at all, maybe a mile. If you'd like to take a taxi, it will cost only 6 bucks. We also wanted a late night bite sent to our room and the staff helped make that happen, they sent up menus on places that were open late, very helpful! Another great thing about this hotel is that the parking is only 29-, other hotels are up in the 45-50 dollar range. Our room also had a great view and a refridgerator that we love to have. I definatley will stay again!

Well-located, clean, good-sized rooms with bath tubs, big tv, restaurants nearby which deliver, satisfying breakfast spread... We have no complaints and would definitely recommend this hotel.

Beds are comfortable, tea and coffee making supplies practical and convenient. They are generous with towels and rooms were serviced satisfactorily.

We loved the breakfast. A good variety and frequently replenished. We had everything we required, and more.

People who complain about the lifts probably have nothing else to whinge about. What is an extra few minutes' wait when most American service staff spend even longer of your time talking about nothing?

I’ve had the privilege of staying here on four different occasions over past four years. The rooms are decorated of an older style but the views are worth a million dollars. The staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast is fulfilling. Give it a go, you will never know till you try.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the Golden Gate Bridge views!

Stayed here for one night. The room was clean and the beds (and pillows) were comfortable. We had a beautiful view of the Golden Gate Bridge. The hotel is located just a few blocks from Fisherman's Wharf, Ghiradelli Square and the famous part of Lombard Street. For the location, the nightly room cost was quite reasonable. There is underground parking, which was $26/night. The staff was very friendly. The hot breakfast was the average Comfort Inn fare - not great but not bad. I would definitely stay here again.

location is quite good, in downtown,close to everything.

But service is not that good, not helpful, not friendly. And when booking the hotel, it was not stated clearly there is additional parking fee of USD26/day,which is a lot, while receptionist is not willing to tell you where you can park, she just said I don't know,I never park outside, I pay to park everyday.Ridiculous! But Sheraton hotel receiptionist told us when we drop by for some business.

I also asked the price to change from a standard room to a queen or king room, receptionist told us it is more than $50 balance to pay if I want to change, then I checked on line, it is only around $10 difference, how can it be this huge difference? And there is still vacancy.

Just personal experience for your reference.

This well located Hotel (you can get taxis at all times) delivers what the chain promises: Standard room sizes -but definitely they need a replacement of beds and furniture- with free internet and fairly LCD TV sets in all rooms. Breakfast will satisfy all family members needs.
Price/Location is at it's best... Since San Francisco is a non-car city for visitors, you can walk to Fisherman's Wharf and you will never expend more than 10 dollars getting to the other neighborhoods like Union Square.
The limited staff wasn't helpful answering questions related to additional fees on top of the already paid by internet... bordering on rudeness.

Room Tip: Stay away from the single bed rooms, they are tiny and no view at all. Odd room numbers are facing n...

the hotel was nothing specil the room could have been just about any other hotel room in the United States clean comfortibal 10 or 15 channels on the television, a safe no view in mine on the 5th floor faceing West but I didn't go to San Francisco to see a hotel room any way. I went to eat drink and see the sights and this was a GREAT location for all of the above. It was in walking distance of just about any land mark some one visiting the city would want to see and suround by good spots for a meal or a drink. I didn't have a vehical there and didn't need one but there is parking and public transport stops just out side of the door. the staff were plesent I rember the maitnace guy Alex being hellpful with directions and the desk staff tried to be hellpful but it wasn't their fault they didn't have tooth paste or shampoo at the desk. all and all I would stay there again but it is not the place for some one looking for a 5 or even 3 1/2 star stay but San Francisco is a cool enough place you won't want to spend much time in the room any way.

Room Tip: rooms on the west side at least up to the 5th floor have no view
