Excellent place to stay. Perfect location with or without a car (no parking fee!) Staff could not be more friendly and helpful. Rooms and whole property spotless. Lots of really good restaurants in all price ranges close by, in fact every kind of shop you could need right there!
Would/will return.

The good news is that you are unlikely to find a hotel with such a plesant receptionist. A benefit of a small family run hotel perhaps but as new visitors to SF we were given maps without asking and told all the best spots to see. Nothing was too much trouble and for that reason the hotel should be on your shortlist in you visit SF

Bed was fantastically comfortable and pillows just right for me.

The couple of very minor gripes were that the room was a bit on the chilly side (however it was warmer than our house when we got back) and as a consequence the unheated bathroom was really nippy first thing in the morning with the cold tiled floors. Secondly the heating/aircon unit was a bit noisy and the fan in the bathroom was a like an aircraft taking off. Heater/aircon unit not a problem as we just switched it off for sleeping.

Stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon. Fantastic location, with a carpark. Clean, decent sized rooms. Close to the cable cars. Would highly recommend staying here.

WARNING! If you are using the expedia route finder coming south from freeway 101, there is a step missing! When you get off the freeway (Mission St exit), turn left (North) into Van Ness Ave. That is the continuation of 101, not Mission St as stated in the instructions.

We saw more of San Fran than we wouldve liked from that little doosey. Speaking to the hotel staff, apparently it isnt the first time people have done it. Great hotel. :)

We were pleasantly surprised upon checking in that the managers had remembered from our original reservation that it was our honeymoon and they genuinely seemed interested in hearing about our wedding and travel plans for San Francisco. Judy and Frank offered a ton of great suggestions in terms of restaurants, how to walk to the tourist sites (eat some crab at Fisherman's wharf - very very very tasty!) and who to call to book an Alcatraz tour. We stopped in for some hot chocolate (served in the office all evening) each night just to chat with them - Because of their excellent service and a really nice room, I couldn't recommend this place more. My husband and I are hoping to come back for one of our anniversaries!

I chose this accommodation only after thorough research on several websites and stayed for 1 week. The service was lovely, it's close to many attractions and it's very clean and safe. Quiet also, not a lot of noise. I loved the fact that the parking was totally FREE! I also liked that I could catch the bus to another hotel (parking wasn't free there) where a conference I attended was held. Took minutes. Would recommend this motel wholeheartedly! Worth the money.

My son and I were in town for a rugby tournament he was playing in at Kezar stadium. We had a room with 2 queen beds which was fantastic. Large enough for both of us and all of his sports gear -- This was my son's first visit to S.F. and the location of the Nob Hill made it real easy for us to hit all of the major tourist sites on our day off. Must recommend Swan Oyster Depot a tiny seafood restaurant just near the inn
- great food (we ate there three times during our 5 day stay!)
