“Pricey, buy OK location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

Standard motel, but pricey for what you get. Rooms are OK and clean, but no air conditioning and the sound insulation is poor - you could hear conversations next door and people walking around upstairs. Breakfast is very limited - they need a toaster. Staff are very pleasant and helpful.
Location is good. You can walk to the wiggly part of Lombard Street and Fisherman's Wharf without too much of a problem. Plenty of bars and restaurants on Lombard and Chestnut, a block away.
In case you are not a confident driver, parking is very tight - you have to drive in and then reverse out onto the main road.

This is a very nice property. It is in a great location, can walk to all kinds of restaurants and easy walk to the waterfront. It has free parking which in this area is very rare. It is an older property but it is taken care of nicely. The room is extremely small but well appointed. The bathroom was really too small, you could barely turn around, but everything worked. We planned on staying 3 days, but it was very cold, so we left after 1 night.

Stayed 2 nights at the Town House and found it to be very comfortable and on one of the main streets of the City but not plagued with noise from traffic. Owners helpful and pleasant enough and the location was great for getting around. we went on a Tour Bus around the City and over the Bridge and were impressed with the value for money as we would not have seen 1/2 of the sights had we not took the tour.

Room Tip: We were up on level 1 and were not disturbed by any traffice noise.

Within walking distance of Pier 39 and the main tourist points the Town House is great for those on a budget - especially if you have a vehicle (Free Parking). Good safe are with lots of good restaurants etc close by. Slightly grumpy receptionist but other than that all clean and well maintained.

Room Tip: Any - Ground floor better

The Town House Motel is not a great place by itself, though nothing is wrong with it. The rooms are large enough, the beds are good, it's clean, the staff is friendly, the continental breakfast is nothing to write home about (as you might expect as a European). Best point is that it's next to a good bike rental shop, and close to many places you might want to visit. Just 10 minutes or so to Fisherman's Wharf (walking) and next door to Fort Mason. Tour buses stop in front of the Motel. Also the Safeway in walking distance is an asset.
Free parking and a reasonable price make the good picture complete.

Room Tip: Rooms looked all the same to me

We stayed at this place last weekend and it was everything we had hoped for. The price was very reasonable for the area. The desk people were very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and fresh, and the neighborhood felt very safe. There was free wifi, and parking was tight but free. The location was perfect, within walking distance to lots of sights. What else can you ask for in San Francisco?

This Motel was great! The office folks were friendly and helpful and went the extra mile for us. The rooms were clean and had 'fridge and nice flat screen TV with plenty of cable stations. The best part was the location. Walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf and easy access to all public transportation to get anywhere in the city. We were able to keep the car parked and so saved a lot on parking. The breakfast was very basic but 2 doors down was Golo's cafe which has a great breakfast menu. All in all, a good place to stay. Would definitely stay again.
