What can I say? Or rather, what can I add to the reviews already on this page? Not much!
This hotel was the most comfortable and 'homely' one we stayed in during our week long trip all over California. The shared bathrooms were really not an issue and were never busy. The staff were friendly, helpful, polite - but also quirky and fun. You don't get quirky and fun at the Holiday Inn! The lack of tv and telephone in the bedrooms was not an issue either - and was more than made up for by the extensive bookcases dotted around the hotel and the excellent massage chair (great at the end of a tiring day of touristy things). And it was really nice to not fall asleep in front of the tv in YET another generic motel room.
Basically, for the price, the location and the comfort, it was a much better decision for us to stay in a place like this than any of the generic chain hotels located in Fisherman's Wharf. You still got everything you'd get in a generic hotel chain i.e. cleanliness and comfort. But I liked the hostel feel of the place - the launderette on site, the shared tv room and that general friendliness from other guests that you'd get in a hostel but you wouldn't get anywhere else. I don't know if we got all this because we stayed at a relatively off-peak time of year though.
Would stay here again and would certainly recommend it to others.
