The motel is on two levels with garages underneath. Try to get a room within the courtyard as Lombard Street is quite busy and you could get some noise disturbance. The rooms are a bit dated in terms of the decor but are comfortable and well equipped with a separate kitchen area with large fridge/ freezer microwave and cooker. The shower is nice and large also and the water pressure good. Bed was a bit on the small side. The area is safe and a walk to the Golden Gate Bridge and the Fine Arts Museum is possible from here. Very pleasant stay and good value.
