Not very worth the money

It's much not as pretty as shown in the pics or described by some other customers. Small and old rooms, quite limited parking space that requires extra charge, and noise. Aweful breakfast.

Great Location

They charge $15/day for parking which was never mentioned but is a fair price if you look around...everywhere charges for parking. Free coffe and good maps available in the office. The rooms are musty smelling but if you're out on the town like we were, it doesn't matter much. Simple but friendly staff. I'll stay there again.

Little Itally's the best. Union Steet's kinda yuppie, but classy. The busses take you anywhere you'd waana go and there's so much walking distance from the hotel it's awesome.

awful experience

the first day we thought that the hotel was in a great position ( close to the wharf), so it didn't matter that the room was very small. there is no breakfast and after the first night I got bed bugs all over my face and my body ( I got 60 bites), and my brother too. they moved us to another room and I still got more bites. When I complained they cleaned the sheets and sprayed something in the old room. They didn't do anything else because you couldn't see the bugs. well you could see it from my face and arms!! I will never go back there!

you can find a place to eat very close to the hotel, 5-10 min walk, but you need to go before 10 pm, otherwise everything is close. we got there late due to a flight delay and we didn't find anywhere to eat.

great location, friendly staff

Within walking distance is Fisherman's Wharf with tons of restaurants & shops. Bourdin had good food and a great view but it was a little pricey. A short walk to Starbucks and Trader Joe's on Bay St. Columbus street had lots of places to eat as well. The Stinking Rose was amazing, and pastry at shops along Columbus were delicious (try Stella.) Giordano Bros made their own fries in front of you and served them ON the sandwich with slaw. A taxi ride away-do not miss the House of Nanking, best Chinese food in town. Served family-style, expect to wait in line. The best food I've had in a while. (I know I must sound fat by now, but I really earned it-we were in town for the San Francisco Marathon!) We rented bikes from Blazing Saddles on Columbus and biked to the Golden Gate-$32 for 24 hour rental, a neat way to see the city. Taxis are all over the place around the hotel, the Hilton is across the street. Bus station close as well. The only drawback to this location was the noise. It is a very busy street and with horns honking and buses thundering by, it was hard to sleep. I finally bought some earplugs from Walgreen's and got a good night's sleep the last night. Also, there is no A/C, but there is a heater. (Although it was freezing in the middle of July in SF, so you may not need the A/C anyway.) The window opens for ventilation and there is a fan. Overall I felt very safe there. I got in really late the first night and stayed alone, then my friends came in the next night. I was not the least bit scared. The staff was really nice & helpful, especially the cleaning lady. I must say I'm pretty picky about hotel cleanliness (especially the bathroom) but this place exceeded my expectations. No hair or dirt anywhere. It was cute with flowers potted everywhere outside. Highly recommend this place-will definitely stay again.

Although this is an older motel with small rooms, the people are friendly and helpfull and the location is just excellent. Great restaurants and Fishermans Wharf are within walking distance.

Trader Joe's is three blocks away, so we picked up muffins and fruit for breakfast since the one the motel provided was the just sweet rolls and coffee.
