I wasn't looking for a motel inside the city. I wanted something in a quieter spot and that's just what we got with Seal Rock Inn. It does require a car to get into the city, but the scenery nearby was fantastic. You can walk into the coastal trail, down to the Sutro Baths and along the Pacific Ocean. The courtyard of the hotel is cute and has pingpong and badmitton. The pool didn't seem to be open. The room was spacious. It was old fashioned, but well kept up. Perfect for a family with two kids with a divider wall that allows parents to read while kids go to sleep. We never went to the Seal Rock restaurant, but Louis's restaurant nearby was excellent with spectacular views. We could see the ocean from our room. If you are looking for a chain style hotel, this is not the place for you. If you want something a little off the beaten path, this is the place. We actually came back during our visit to SF. Also, there is a parking garage under the motel although there is plenty of parking in the neighborhood.
