“Great place to stay for the trip”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

While not new and showing some signs of aging, my family loved the place. Great location to walk to local business plus walk to the Piers if you are ready for the hills. The Hotel has free parking, very tight spaces but I was able to get a mini van in, which helps a lot if you would rather drive to places.
The temp in the room is very easy to adjust. And the whole area was quite nice.
The only issue was the breakfast was limited in choices but you can get items from local stores and place in the refg if you would rather.

I arrived after booking through Booking.com to find there were no rooms available, they moved us to their sister hotel the Inn on Broadway which would be described as dubious at best. Room had a strange pungent smell and what looked liked blood on the carpet. I would avoid the Nob Hill Hotels if you want a fair standard of room, there are far better ones at cheaper rates.

We spent two nights in this inn before flying back home. Receptionist did all he could to meet our request: a spacious room on the top floor, far from the street. Beds were excellent, room was clean, WIFI worked fine. Continental breakfast is miserable but we knew it having stayed here before. This is not the main point for us. We enjoy the central location, the parking and friendly staff.

Would stay again but still recommend they make efforts to offer decent breakfast.

Upon arrival we were advised that they had not received our 'booking.com' booking and were full. We were referred to a sister hotel, Inn on Broadway and, on arrival at that property the check-in clerk helpfully advised that "We always take the over-bookings for Nob Hill Motor Inn". Avoid if you can!!

We've stayed at the Colombus Motor Inn several times, amd have really liked it. they were full, so we tried the Nob Hill. The woman at the desk said our requested "quiet room" wasn't ready (at 4:00), and gave us a room on the street, with major constuction going on. Loud jackhammering at all hours. The room had a nasty smell, and there was very little hot water.
We were told there was breakfast in the morning, so we went down for coffee. There was a thermos of tepid water and INSTANT COFFEE GRANULES! Unbelievable, and in San Francisco.
This place is grim. Stay away!!

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.

I found this place the morning I was driving up to San Francisco. We checked in late after checking out the town and was upgraded to a family suite because there were no single rooms left. No complaints here! Rooms were nice and clean. Bed was okay for hotel. Tv didn't have hbo as advertised but did have other cable channels. We booked on BookIt.com and it said it came with continental breakfast and wifi. Wifi yes, breakfast no. A little bummer but okay. It is a short walk to many restaurants and places to drink. Not too far from the wharf as well. Best part of this hotel was the staff!! Super nice. They even let us keep our car there after checkout so we could go to the giants game etc. Will definitely stay here again if ever in town.

Nob Hill Motor Inn in San Francisco is a decent hotel to stay in and at a good price in expensive San Fran. The front staff is helpful and one lady (didn't get her name) was fantastic and went over and above. The room was out dated but clean, there is a fridge, microwave and coffee in room which is great for longer stays. Their Wi Fi was great! And they had real toilet paper not the cheap stuff! The location is safe and accessible to many sights either by bus or walking. Note about the breakfast - it's donuts!
