2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Close to everything. Rooms clean, free parking and good customer service.

Great hotel, friendly staff and nice to be able to park!

Has Access to major highway, located in good area

Great location for biking and walking at a reasonable price.

I arrived at 2am and had to knock on some glass to get someone to attend to me. The room I got was spacious and clean and had all the amenities I needed for the night. It was funny in the hallway cause it says "STAIR" instead of "STAIRS" so obviously this hotel is run by non-English natives and is meant for tourists, But for pricey SF this was a good deal on the night I needed a room.

Parking garage is a nightmare, staff had to take keys if you blocked someone in. What if the staff bumped into another car etc

Needs updating, tub/shower were disgusting. Parking was limited. Outside deck was great!

Great spot, the Hop on Hop off bus right out front. Parking is really tight. Wished it had a microwave.

great and cleanest room, great breakfast, very central location

The hotel was nice and has free parking including free breakfast and at perfect location. All the major attractions are nearby.

Clean, updated location is good too! Can't beat it for the price!! Try the Italian restaurant which is only 1/2 mile away... trattertino pane e vino...amazing!

Walking distance to shops also walking distance to many know sights such as fisherman warth, pier 39, and walking distance to cable car. We drove to San Francisco from L.A, and we did no driving in San Francisco cause everything was just close to us.

the hotel has a very good location and free parking!

Location is good, all major sightseeing places are near by

We were very happy with our stay! The best part is the free parking that is really why we choose this hotel. The room was clean and close enough to a lot of things we could walk too. The breakfast was also great all the food was fresh. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will be staying again in the future.

I had initially booked another hotel near downtown and had to cancel because there was no parking/garage available only valet. I then booked this hotel (for more money) because of the parking facility only to find out when I arrived that there is limited parking. Unfortunately when you're traveling with kids 1 1/2 yrs and 5yrs that becomes a big inconvenience. My family and I stayed for 3 nights and every night we had to park on the street and walk to the hotel. There is street parking available but it's also limited. If you decide to stay at Buena Vista Motor Inn and park on the street do not leave anything in your car that is important to you, expensive and visible to the eye! There was a car with a broken window right by our car. I used to live in San Francisco and it happens a lot. The hotel is located on the very famous Lombard Street "the crookedest street in the world" @eastern segment in the Russian Hill neighborhood. It's only a few minutes away from the Golden Gate Bridge and the Presidio of San Francisco where you can go and take picture at the Yoda Fountain if you are a Star Wars fan ;) I would recommend this hotel but just remember to arrive early for a good parking spot :)

Clean and affordable, free parking and fresh breakfast a real plus. Great location!

I have stayed here twice. I like the location. The price is reasonable. The best feature is the free parking. The staff is friendly enough, but nothing remarkable. They offer free breakfast. Cereal, fruit, yogurt, donuts. Rooms are older, but have been updated and are clean.
