San Francisco charm

Daughter and I spent a week sight-seeing, our first visit and we loved our motel! Great staff, rooms and location. Breakfast could of been a little better if eggs or cereal, it was only croissants, muffins or fruit. Charming hotel, but you can be awakened early morning by neighbors' alarm clocks/bathroom plumbing. Beds are comfortable. We would stay there again anytime.

Great location for the price

Perfect location if you are looking for a place to stay right near Union Square, especially if you happen to be running in the Nike Women's Marathon. Great location at a very reasonable price. The hotel service was excellent and the staff was very friendly. They were a great source in helping you get around town and restaurant suggestions. Be prepared for a pretty small room.

Nice little place

This is a fine hotel for the price. The location is ideal. You can walk to the Wharf, if you're in shape because those hills are crazy. There's tons of places to eat and drink right around you. The rooms are small. It was just the two of us and we had just enough room for two carry on bags. The bed however makes it worth it. I wanted to steal the bed. It's perfect after a long day of sightseeing. The bathroom is insanely small. You cannot fit two people in that room at once. No fan. No counter. Not great water pressure. The bathroom is maybe three steps from the bed. You hear everything that goes on in that bathroom. Great decor. Free breakfast is just carbs, OJ and coffee. Good to get something before your real breakfast. Would stay here again.

Great!

Friendly staff, excellent service, great location. The only drawback was a very small continental breakfast (rolls and fruit). Could use something not sweet. However, there are good breakfast places nearby. Overall, I'd definitely stay there again!

Great location, tiny rooms.

The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly, and located just two blocks from Union Square. However, the rooms are very small and PICS ON THE INTERNET ARE DECEIVING!!!

Excellent location, very small room

The hotel was located very close to Union Square and the Trolley Tram - therefore easy to access all tourist locations. Although the rooms were very small, they were very clean and well serviced. It was a bonus that breakfast was included in the fee. Sadly, the heating was centralised and only in service until another guest requested that it be turned off. This meant some very cold nights.

If going to Fishermans Wharf, catch the No 30 bus or the F tram which is only $2 as opposed to the Trolley Tram which is more expensive and often too full to collect passengers.

4th of July at the Larkspur

Quaint, super tiny rooms (even for SF). Only one elevator, very slow. Can't beat the location and the price was okay, the service was nice too.

Great hotel

I really enjoyed staying at Larkspur Hotel! Perfect location, close to everything-Union Square, China Town, Embarcadero, a lot of nice restaurants around. The service was excellent; the staff in the hotel was very friendly and helpful. When I go to San Francisco again, I would love to stay in a same hotel.
