“BEWARE!!!”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

I don't know what other people saw to write a good review, but my experience was AWFUL! Rug in room was so stained and smelled like pee.. mattress was warped and brown stains... stuff dripping down the walls. Doors and walls look like they were never cleaned. Bathroom had black mold growing behind the sink and in the showers. The fan in bathroom on the ceiling had so much dust in that it didn't even work. The room was so stuffy without air conditioning and the windows didn't open. The girl at desk was so kind to give me a fan to use. The phone in room didn't work, The coffee pot in room didn't work. YOU NEED TO RECONSIDER THIS PLACE. IT SHOULD BE CONDEMNED!

A bit difficult to find on foot as the maps of San franscisco were not to scale. Excellent position once we worked out the buses. Beautiful houses around it to walk around the streets and along the water front to the piers. Easy access to the Golden Gate bridge and once we got a rental, out to the I5.
Smaller rooms than we thought but bathroom clean. Mel's Diner was wonderful for breakfast each morning as the office only offered coffee, packaged breakfast and pastry's. Unobtrusive staff. Quiet rooms and we had excellent sleep.

Excellent location, easy access to public transportation. Mel's Diner is a block away, so is Lombard St.. A good value in a decent area to walk at night. It was easy getting to all the attractions you usually visit,"Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, Ghierdeli Square, Golden Gate Park is an easy bus ride away.

Room Tip: We asked for the ground floor and were pleasantly surprised not to hear the people staying above us...

We stayed at Greenwich Inn (San Francisco) in July, 2013 and would stay there again if we were ever in SF area.

PROS-Clean, close to fishermans warf, shopping, restaurants, Lombard street, GG bridge, etc., good price for the location, excellent service, refrigerator, comfy bed, roomy, no bugs,

CONS-helpful and kind desk person was ALWAYS on the phone making reservations so u have to wait because there's very limited staff, rooms were outdated and in need of cosmetic repair, walls are pretty thin so u hear everything around you (trash collector, neighbors, etc), coffee pot was one of those 1 cup coffee makers (Mel's diner was a block away)

If ur not planning on spending ur SF time in the hotel all day this hotel is the place to stay.

Excellent location central to most of San Francisco; ample parking (a real value in that city!); close to bus lines; easy walking to many sites; friendly, helpful personnel. Yes, it is a big "worn at the edges," but it met all my basic needs: clean (the housekeeping staff works hard); strong, hot shower; firm bed; ice machine outside, hot water for tea and coffee in the reception area all day long. I've stayed many times in San Francisco at a variety of motels and hotels. This motel is not fancy, but it is a great value in an expensive city (much less costly than the fancier motels on Lombard) and I would stay again. As a woman traveling alone, I felt very safe and comfortable during my 3 night stay.

Room Tip: As a solo traveler, I recommend upstairs; I was on the outer corner. There was really not much traff...

This is a nice hotel, great location, free parking, nothing fancy..but good deal for the price.
Transportation available to SFO airpoty for a reasonable fee. Very close to Golden Gate and 1.5 miles from FIshermann's Wharf/ Ghierdeli Square.

The location is great. Free parking was also really good. Rooms are not well isolated so noisy. It could have been ok for the price if the carpet was not so disgusting and sticky as it really gave a dirty feeling to the whole room.
