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.

Fisherman's Wharf

From beginning to end, this was one of the better hotel experiences I've had. Arrived by car; bellhop was already there to unload the trunk and took our bags up while valet parked the car. Staff was very friendly & accommodating. Helped us find late-night restaurants and ways to get around the city without using the car. I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

Feels like home!

This was my second stay in the year at the Tuscan Inn. I was very impressed by the personal touch exhibited by the staff and yes, this is a consistent feature. Furthermore, the rooms are very well maintained and the wine hour is super - the white zinfandel is my favorite. The location makes visiting Fisherman's Wharf a breeze, it is close by, yet away from the crowds. Muni bus number 47 stops across the Inn, and is convenient for getting to Van Ness to connect to the Bart at another stop away, or heading to say the SF Zoo or Stonestown Mall via the other streetcar lines at Van Ness station. The Powell Mason cable car line is a block away for a quick travel to Union Square. So when I chanced upon the deal offered on a travel website, the Tuscan Inn was a clear choice. I will stay here when I next visit.

Great stay

I had a work function last weekend and stayed at the Best Western. The staff was very helprful and the room is great. Only negative is the expensive parking ($56). You can't beat the location and I'll definitely be going back!
