Location Location

The hotel staff was not friendly, at times rude. The Location wasn't to bad. The hotel is about 4-5 blocks from Fishermen's Warf.It is a nice walk over, lovely sights of the Chocolate Factory and Bay. The hotel did have free parking which was very nice saves you that hassle and fees. This hotel was the cheapest I could find for its location. If your the type of person who just sleeps in the hotel and is out and about the whole day I would recommend this place. If you like to hangout in the hotel do not stay at this hotel. This hotel is on/down the street from the Famous Lombard St - one-block section that consists of tight hairpin turns.

Decent, good location.

We were traveling to San Francisco to attend a couple of wedding receptions, one north of SF and one south, so we needed a reasonably priced hotel with parking. The hotel was easy to find on Lombard, and fairly convenient to getting to the 101 to go South, and also to get to the Golden Gate. Parking lot was free, but really tight (we had trouble squeezing the rented Dodge Charger into spots). Bed was OK, a little hard. Breakfast is instant coffee, orange juice, pastries, fruit (bananas). On the plus side, the room was largish, the bathroom was big, everything was really clean, and the room was quiet. Good selection of channels on the TV if you want to unwind a bit. On our next to last day, we took a 20 minute walk to the wharf area, which was great.

Good Value

First night had a VERY small room; bed only, no desk/table. Was moved to a larger room for remainder of stay. Great value with free parking (if you have a SMALL car)and free wireless internet (forget about the free breakfast (instant coffee and pre-packaged muffins). On a busy street so a bit of traffic noise. Safe neighborhood. Don't let them put you in room 201.

Decent Value

Pretty good location and value, you shouldn't be expecting the Ritz if you stay here. As long as you know that, you'll be fine.

One night stay

This is the second time I stay at this hotel and I would say it's fairly convenient. It has free parking and the location is pretty good!
