First Time in SF

Picked the Pickwick sort of randomly for a first time visit to SF. The location wasn't great but I also didn't have to spend an arm in a leg. I didn't end up spending to much time in the hotel because there is so much to do. But it was OK hotel to come back to at the end of the night.

Great Service

I'm writing this long after our trip so I do not recall the name of the gentleman at the front desk who assisted us, but he went out of his way to assist us with the garage attendant who was trying to rip us off on parking. We were originally planning on parking overnight but then discovered there was an insane charge to return the car at the airport so we went back downstairs after about an hour to get it and return it to the rental location. The parking attendant told us it was already in the system so he would have to charge us for the entire night. We then spoke with the front desk who informed us there was no "system," the attendant simply writes it down and then gives the info to the hotel later that night. Thanks to his help, we were only charged for an hour and a half of parking instead of an entire night.

Great location! Great Value!

Great location for the price. The value cannot be beat, esp when considering WiFi is included in the hotel rate. Sure, it's not fancy like some of the big name chain around Union Square, but it has all the essentials. Clean, comfortable, friendly staff. What else can you ask for. I will definitely stay here again for my next trip to SF.

Great value for location!

This was an incredible place to stay! There was a bit of confusion around the booking but the staff was able to figure it out for us, albeit unfriendly. Regardless, it was right around the corner from the mall and all public transport. I would definitely stay here again!!

No street noise and the rooms are clean! The bathrooms are tiny but other than that it's fine.

A solid, inexpensive choice

I agree with many of the other reviewers: the Pickwick Hotel isn't for people who are looking for a polished vacation getaway. However, if you're looking for a safe, clean, reasonably well-located place in downtown San Francisco for a decent price, it's a very solid choice.
