Clean Budget Hotel in Expensive San Francisco

Unexpected great staff and pleasant accommodations in an expensive hotel city. Away from downtown but on a Muni bus line, this motel offered fine value at pricing expected in smaller cities. Staff most helpful and attentive, room compact with a king bed, table, chairs, iron, board and hair dryer, along with microwave and large refrigerator. Ice machine worked well. Little noisy with adjacent Geary ( ask for room away from street); parking minimal and spaces really tight. Street parking available. Great sushi restaurants in neighborhood. Great budget choice .

Ariakne is a superb sushi restaurant where the chef will choose and make a special appetizer for you and a matching sushi roll.

Reasonable room rate and convenient place to stay

This motel was chosen, because it is cheap and it is located in the center of San Francisco, with an easy access to get in/out. But the security can be a real concern, as homeless people can come in to sleep in the hallway. In fact, we were waken up in the middle of the night by loud noises and creepy movements by a stranger who decided to come in to sleep in the hallway right next to our room. Needless to say, we were not able to sleep, but he seemed to have slept very well, snoring louldy, coughing and screaming while soundly sleeping, until we came back from breakfast and told the hotel manager. The hotel manager and his lady companion were not friendly at all. Both have a strong accent and they seemed to just stare at us when we tried to talk to them. No smile, or no gesture of kindness that typical hotel staff seem to show at any hotel. It was very unusual to encounter hotel staff who display this kind of attitude to their customers. When we came back at 11:15 AM, the room key did not work, and we found out that we were locked out of the room, even though the hotel manager had agreed that we can check out by noon. No apologies from the manager, but his female companion simply said it is electronically set-up that way and that someone would open the door for us. While waiting, I saw a house cleaning lady nearby, who, at any hotel, typically has a master key, and I asked her if she can open the door for us. Before she can answer, the manager's lady companion got mad, yelling at me. When I asked her if she has any problem, she did not answer, but the hotel manager told her something in Indian. Again, no apologies, nor any explanation from him on her strange outburst.

Great location, we will return!

Great hotel! The amenities and location were superb. We were within walking distance of many sites, restaurants and activities. There was a bus line just outside the hotel that went into Downtown, Land's End and beyond. Parking was provided but be in by 5pm or you'll be looking for parking on the street.

Park on hotel premises by or before 5pm; spots fill up and you will have to park on the street, possibly walking a distance.

Does the job

Nice location, walking distance to a lot of restaurants. Not many expectations for my first time staying in the area. Wanted to be close to USF and that's what I got.

Pleasantly surprised

Not much to say, it's a motel that is clean and very well priced for the location. Includes parking (assuming there will be a spot for you). Would definitely stay again.

Great Motel!

This Motel is in an awesome location and is very fairly priced. The room was comfortable and clean. We would definitely recommend this place! The only down side is that outside noises can be clearly heard through the walls. It's nothing a good pair of earplugs can't fix, though.

Convenient Motel

Location was not an issue as bus line #38 needed just 20 min. to reach down town. Room was really clean although a bit small for two twins. We got good help from the front desk man when an urgent phone call was needed.

Excellent value for SF

The room and bathroom were clean and spacious enough. The bed was comfortable. The only issue is the room faced noisy Geary Ave.

Great price for the location

We arrived late in the evening (8:30)and the hotel manager was sitting in the office waiting for us. There was one space left in the lot & was just big enough to fit the economy car! Not many spaces available and I did see some street parking but I don't know if metered or not. The hotel is on a busy street and our room was on the 1st floor near the pop machine. We heard the noise, but it was not that bad. I brought ear plugs and did not use them. The room was small, but extremely clean. The bathroom deco is beautiful. There is very little counter space and the shower is only about 4 x 4 feet, if that. Guests get a comfy bed, micro & refridge for the price, which is outstanding for the area. We missed breakfast-before 9am but apparently juice & danishes only. There is no lobby or access to a computer. Bus stops are right outside the hotel.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Rented bikes at the Golden Gate Bike Shop, to ride to GGB and around the Golden Gate Park. It was a nice ride in the park, but the ride to the bridge was a bit confusing. Followed street signs from the park and ended up riding along the sidewalks & streets to the Baker Beach area. I am not a frequent biker and the hills started to get a bit much, so turned back and drove from the park to the GGB lookout area. Very glad I did. No way would an amateur make it up those hills! Beautiful views along the way to stop & take photos. Baker's Beach was really nice also.

Geary Parkway Motel Review

The hotel was very clean and the owner was very friendly and helpful. The price was just right. It looks awful from the outside but the rooms are fine. Also, the surrounding area might look sketchy at first but we were able to walk around at night safely. Lots of awesome dim sum restaurants nearby. Far away from downtown San Fran, FYI.
