“good location/value for San Francisco”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

Pacific Heights Inn is located on Union Street next to great restaurants, cafes and boutique shopping, fitness centers. It is possibly in the only flat area of the city. It is clean and adequate. Serves a continental breakfast every day and is close to Fort Mason. A good value for your stay in San Francisco.

I first stayed in the Pacific Heights Inn about 6/7 years ago. One of the things that made it so pleasant were the friendly staff. I have just stayed again and found that the staff aren't so friendly. One person in particular was verbally abusive in his behaviour, but when I talked to the Manager he said he was being asked to leave - so this will not affect any future visitors.
It does have free parking and it is in a convenient location, the rooms are kept clean and the price is reasonable.
However if you stay more than a couple of nights, as I did, you really are looking for a place that is friendly and welcoming as well - which isn't this motel's best feature.
Breakfast - good coffee and orange juice - but terrible muffins/cake.

Room Tip: You pay an additional $10 for a kitchenette - it is not really worth it. Most of the rooms have a m...

It is very clean and nice place with secured parking. Bus stop is only few steps away, also some shops. Only breakfast is not something we liked, but it is also good, especially if you like donats...we will come again.

I always stay at Pacific Height Inn and have enjoyed my stay every time over 20 plus years. Its a small motel, smoking is allowed outside the rooms. It being updated and they keep the property clean and attractive.,
The free and secure parking is a great benefit. We leave our car and hail cabs or take the city bus.
Being in Pacific Heights it is centrally located to most attractions. Fisherman's Wharf if you go north, Union square, China Town not too far away.
Pricing is reasonable especially with the free parking.
Thank you Tony for taking such good care of us and giving directions.

Room Tip: As with any motel the farther from the street the better. But I've never noticed a real noise pr...

More of an older style Hotel that is located in a great central area of San Francisco. Having parking and breakfast is definitely an added bonus. We stayed in room #35 that had a bunk bed, a double bed and a kitchenette. It was more than fine a family of four looking to explore the city and not spend too much time in the room. Everyone was friendly and the the duty manager was a great help!

Recently spent 5 nights at the Inn. We arrived from the Airport, long taxi ride about $60 including tip. The Inn is located at Pacific Hgts area on the edge of the shopping/restaurant area. It is an older style Hotel with plenty of parking if needed. Room we were allocated for our stay was not what I would call a room I would love to stay in for the 5 nights...it desparately needs a renovation. Next morning I went and spoke to the very helpful manager who quickly allocated us to a wonderful room that ensured our stay was great. Beds were super comfortable and we had access to a basic kitchen with a large fridge and microwave including a dinning table.
Shower recess was small but adequate with Ok pressure. Room was well presented. Very close by is Bubbles coin laundry which is perfect. You have a couple of convenience stores a couple of minutes walk which have all your basics. Also close by is some great restaurants including Luisa"s a wonderful Italian restaurant about 10 minutes down the road. Apparently she is an icon in San Francisco restaurant world. It is about a 20 minute walk to San Francisco bay and a further 5 minute walk to Fishermans Wharf. You are only a 10 minute walk ( it is a very steep climb) to San Franciscos famous crooked street. Some wonderful restaurants all with a short walk from the Inn as well some great archeciture in residential buildings. Another positive for the location is you have a basic level walk to Fishermans Wharf and to connect to the ferry to go to Alcatraz whci is about 25 minutes away. No steep hills to negotiate to obtain access to the waterfront. Breakfast is included in the price...well I wouldnt call it your traditional continental breakfast more like sugar and fat to kick off the day. Pound cake and super large muffins is not very healthy 5 days in a row however you do get tea and coffee as well as orange juice. Think if I was the owner I would can the fat/sugar intake in the morning.
Having said all that the room was very good value for a major city in USA & so close to everything important in San Francisco. Many thanks to the duty manager when we checked in as he was very helpful.

Room Tip: Dont book room 8, room 11 is great

Great place to stay. Park your car and use public transportation ($2) to get to Chinatown or the Embarcadero- you'll have a tough time finding street parking, but you can spend $18 for a parking garage. I've stayed in this motel on two different occasions. Taxis are also cheaper than parking.

The first time, I was referred to it by the Travellodge. I stayed in #2. It was wonderful- nice big king room (handicapped) with 2 full bathrooms! On one side, there was a handicap bathtub in a room you could roller skate in- the other had a shower and was a little smaller. It could have used some housekeeping attention, but not much. Hair on the bathroom floor, etc and forgot to take out the bag and clean the coffeemaker altho the pot was clean..

The second time I stayed in #29- what a great room! Room nothing- it was a small apartment! Two queens, nice remodeled bathroom with a great shower, and a separate kitchen. Stove, ref, table and chairs, dishes, knives- fully supplied. What a treat, and the same price as a plain room. Very nice and clean.

I highly recommend it and will stay every time I'm in the city.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are quieter than street level, and the 'U' shaped building helps buffer f...
