Overnight getaway at fishermen's wharf

Pleasant customer service representative at check-in, clean, comfortable & quiet room- made for a perfect stay near the Wharf! Cable cars & pier 39 very close by. We will definitely stay here again. Only downside is the high parking fee but it was convenient & safe.

Nice place for a last minute stay

I had to find a hotel room at the last minute to extend my stay while on a business trip. The only major issue with this place is that there seem to be a total of 3 Holiday Inns in the area. Finding the entrance to this one was a bit tricky. Once in the room it was your standard Holiday Inn Express. Clean, with basic amenities.

Great Hotel

The Location, Room and Staff were great! The hotel put us within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf. We parked our car, unpacked in the room and set out on our adventure. The hotel's concierge was terrific!

The hotel is just 2 to 3 blocks to Fisherman's Wharf. From there, everything is available. If you want to get on Alcatraz, book early.

Location, Location, Location!

If you want to be by Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39, this is the place. Additionally, the best Continental Breakfast we've come across at a hotel. Biscuits and gravy, bacon, eggs, pancakes, etc.... This is actually a full-blown breakfast. With three of us on this trip, the breakfast saved us an easy $45 every morning.

Not bad at all

I paid $560 for two nights for this 3-star hotel. At first, I was skeptical. But then again, the "location"! Overall, it is better than I expected. Oh, the complimentary breakfast was a "hot" breakfast, meaning they actually served it hot! This is one of the few perks they offered. The hotel is within walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf, Ghirardelli Square, the Cable car stop, Aquarium of the Bay, and we even walked to The Exploratorium which took us about 15~20 min. We had a king size bed, ground floor room. Pretty roomy.

Try "King of Thai Noodle House" right next to the In-N-Out burger. We had the roasted duck soup noodle and they papaya salad, plus the dessert mango sticky rice. None disappointed us.

Unexpected excellence!

Chose this hotel because of location and it was worth it. Had everything we need for a party of 5 of grandparents and three grandchildren. Cleanliness of room service was fantastic and the breakfast all that we hoped for in feeding three pre-teens with voracious appetites. Also, sharing pool use with the next door neighbor Holiday Inn was greatly appreciated. Desk staff most accommodating and polite and if something was requested, it was supplied instantaneously! Would choose it again if staying in San Francisco.

City is meant for walking, long or short! However, the transit system and purchasing a City Pass is the best ever!
