“A fair budget motel”
Reviewed September 18, 2008

We stayed at Greenwich Inn during our first visito to San Francisco. It is in a convenient location if you arrive by car. The motel has a reasonable amount of parking. Moreover it is very close to Lombard St. where you can find lot of places for a breakfast or a dinner if you don't want to go far. Mel's drive inn (just two black from the motel) would be a good choice.

I've been in Frisco only twice (one at Greenwich Inn and one in another Motel) so I'm not a great expert of motel prices here. However, considering it was during a week-end and comparing the Greenwich Inn to the other motel we used during our second visit, I can say that Greenwich Inn has a good price vs. quality ratio.

Rooms were clean and we had no complaint.

  • Liked — It is in a good position

Clean motel with free parking in a lovely neighbourhood. Location close to busy streets as Lombard or Chestnut, and at walking distance (if you like walking) of Fisherman's Warf. Public transportation easily available. The only negative thing was that the heater in the room was quite noisy.

No air is the feeling you get entering the room. To be honest a mildew smell was the impression. Especially after spending the whole day around the city.
It is very well located. Near the Golden Gate, Marina and North point. It's cheap but I didn't feel relaxed to sleep in that room. The cover didn't look clean. Maybe just an impression but.....
So I recommend only if you don't pass many time in the room and want to spend as cheap as possible still taking advantage of the good location

We stayed there respectively 3 and 1 nights this month and we can highly recommend this motel: kind and helpfull man who runs the motel. Clean place and above all close to all locations you want to visit, either by walking or taking a bus. One block away from the noisy Lombard street and consequently a lot quieter to sleep! We payed an average of 97 USD tax incl. per night for the first 3 nights and only 73 USD tax incl. for the last night with a coupon. Only one disadvantage: when the motel is full there is not enough parking!
Anyway, we can highly recommend this affordable motel and would choose it again.

Great location in Cow Hollow near the Marina distrtict in San Francisco close to many good restaurants and shops. Convenient deli right across the street. The internet connection was shaky and the room was small but clean. Service was not overly friendly. Very reasonable rates along with free parking. Overall, the Greenwich Inn is an excellent value for the price.

I'd strongly recommend this hotel for a great budget hotel in San Francisco. Great location, safe, nice staff. Not fancy, or lots of space but if you are there to visit the city or work...you can't beat the price!

I was very happy with my stay at the Greenwich Inn. the staff was very friendly and helpful and my room was very clean. This is a great place to stay for the budget conscious traveller, but if you are looking for extra amenities or luxury, this is not the place for you.

Pros: PRICE, location (very near the shops and restaurants on Chestnut and close to Golden Gate Bridge), friendly staff, clean rooms, FREE Parking, ample parking

Cons: rooms are small, no telephone, thin walls. It is a quite neighborhood and I felt safe, but due to the thin walls you can hear the street traffic at times. If you are a light sleeper or in need of major relaxation, this could be a definite issue.
