Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you're taking the bus to a Giants ball game, you have to transfer from the train that leaves Fisherman's Wharf to a Muni train that is running underground, without benefit of signage at the transfer point. Very, very confusing.

Good value and great location

We booked this hotel at the last minute and were very happy with our choice. The location was great, just a few blocks from fishermans wharf and all the action. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean. It wasn't huge but it worked just fine for us. Great value.

Best Western Tuscan San Fransisco

We stayed at this hotel while in SanFransisco for vacation. It is VERY convenient to all the usual tourist spots and bus tour lines. The rooms are average. Nothing special but nice and clean, albeit small. The staff was friendly and helpful. No pool for the kids. There is a free wine hour 5-6 in the lobby which is nice but we were never around at the time to enjoy it. I think it is pricey to stay here since we were in our room basically just to sleep. We took off early and returned late but you are paying for location, location, location-which was great. The only negative to report is the multiple trash trucks that pick-up through the night that woke us up repeatedly. They come at all hours starting at midnight and all through the night until morning. And they awoke us every night. We had a great time in SanFran and would definitely return.

Nice Stay

We had a nice stay at the Best Western in Fisherman's Wharf. The location was really great. I wish there were more perks with the room and that the room was a little larger. It was pretty cramped for myself and my husband.
