Basic & Close to Fisherman's Wharf

Very friendly staff. They gave us good recommendations for restaurants nearby. Just a couple of blocks to walk downhill to get to fisherman's wharf, and just one block uphill gets you to some great restaurants in a nice neighborhood. My only real complaint is that we were told when we checked in that this was a non-smoking hotel. Our room, however, smelled like the whole staff had been taking their smoke breaks in our room for years. Could have just been our room. We could have asked for another room, but we just hate being the squeaky wheels. Room came with free continental breakfast vouchers for the cafe downstairs. Nothing special. Just used them once to get something to tide us over until we got out and about. Use Yelp for your restaurant choices and you can't go wrong! All in all, not too bad. Just avoid room 306 if you don't like the smell of old ashtrays.

Cramped in SF

Overall the hotel was very clean. Hotel was located blocks away from the attractions, too far to walk. The bathroom was very disappointing no counter top. No refrigerator. Had requested a smoking room and was confirmed with a smoking room, upon checking in found out that the hotel was smoke free.

Basic hotel.

Rooms pretty basic. No mirror other than in bathroom. Only chair was at the desk. Very poor lighting. Comfortable beds. Great pool, sauna and workout room. Convenient location. Breakfast only fruit and pastries.

Oustanding Location

You can’t beat the location. Corner of Filbert and Van Ness. A few minutes walking from The Warf, Pier 39, and Ghirardelli Square. A few minutes’ drive to Golden Gate Bridge, Downtown, Lombard Street, Chinatown, Golden Gate Park and the coast. It’s a great place. Rooms are nice and clean (We had a Golden Gate Bridge View) and quiet. Staff is friendly and pleasant. Had to pay for parking but who doesn’t in the Bay Area. DON’T Stay on the Warf when you can stay here!

week-end visitor

Hotel was further from Fisherman's Wharf than we had expected. Room clean, bed comfortable. Small bathroom with no space to put toiletries. Our room faced a parking lot. For the lower price we paid, it was acceptable.

Need Improvements for Comfort

1. Need two chairs so two people can sit, bed isn't a chair: 2. Computer cord too short : 3. No mirror in room except one small mirror in bathroom. 4. Bathroom is toooo small, have to shut door to use sink! Claustrophobic!!!!! 5. Parking lot is the pits....$25.00 a day is way too much. 6. Long way to go for ice and soda AND you can't get both on the same flooor!
