Pretty good

Stayed 3 nights. Very good accommodation. No significant complaints. Very clean. Good breakfast with lots of choices Minor issues: - no view from our room - inadequate elevator service, particularly at busy times (and you can't use the stairs, because it would set off the fire alarm) - staff starts clearing breakfast shortly before the 9:30 end time (so don't come at 9:25 and expect to find all of the choices available)

Great location

We walked to Fisherman's Warf the first night. The second day we walked to Union square and shopped till we dropped! We found our way to China town and finally had a fantastic Italian dinner in North Beach. The. Hotel was very centrally located. The breakfast was pretty good too. Love the waffles!

Within walking distance to many attractions if you wear tennis shoes. Prepare to take a cab back, you'll be tired.

Needed to be in the City

The location of this hotel is really perfect in terms of being centrally located to all San Francisco has to offer. The staff was very friendly, the room was very clean, and I would recommend the Comfort Inn to travelers and anyone needing to conduct business in the city.

Good for the Price

The parking lot is really small and tight but we parked and used public transportation the rest of the trip so it was okay. The employees were helpful and answered any questions I had. The room is pretty ordinary. There is a wall unit AC & it kept our room cool. There is no fridge in the room and WIFI was a little difficult. However, overall for the price and location it was worth it.

Great place to stay

Found the hotel but had to circle the block because couldn't enter the driveway from Van Ness. But once we parked (in a very tight under ground garage) there were no other problems. They let us use the garage before check in so we were able to sightsee before check in. The gave us a map & pointed us in the right direction. Room was totally acceptable - clean with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Great location - easy walk to the wharf, lots of bus stops nearby. Will stay here again.

Beginning of trolley line Powell/Hyde is very close. Buy an all day pass for $15. Will get you on any bus, cable car, trolley up until midnight.

location location location

It's location let's you walk from the hotel to the wharf or to Chinatown. How ever it's $26 to park your car at this hotel steeper than others and my biggest complaint is the 4:00 check in time and 12:00 check out. Most places you get closer to 24 hours. The curtains are against moist windows so show sign of a darker mold but the rooms suffice for sleep and they have a decent breakfast but not enough room to sit and eat buy allow you to take the food to your room. It's an average room average hotel average everything but being in San Francisco means it's much pricier. In other cities the same price gets you a suite in a 4 star hotel for the night.

Get a buss pass so a quick trip to the wharf and many other places are closer at hand. Remember San Francisco has many many steep hills

Good Value - a lovely stay for me :)

While staying at this hotel during my work week at Moscone Center for SF Gift Show I could not have been much more happy ! The staff person on duty was pleasant and most helpful - the only negative was that there were not enough tables in the breakfast room in the morning and my issues are more about rude guests who were pushing and jumping lines - not the fault of hotel staff - simply, people behaving badly, oh well ! I will return to this property - it is a good value and very comfortable and quiet

Perfectly acceptable

This hotel is a great, no-frills value. The staff is helpful; the rooms are clean. It's not the Ritz, but, hey, it's a good value.
