Holiday Inn Golden Gateway

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice hotel, with a convenient location. The staff was a bit rude.

I loved it! They had also a lovely selection on the breakfast buffet. Friendly staff.

The staff was very accommodating and helpful. They offer baggage storage so travelers have a place to store baggage prior to checking in. The room was clean and comfortable. The beds were next level. Finally, security was great. I'd stay here again without hesitation.

Arrived about 3 hours before check-in so they immediately upgraded us and got us a room that was clean and ready—had a beautiful view of the city. Due to the upgrade, we also received late check-out, which was very helpful too. Staff was very nice and the room was very clean, even the bathtub! Would definitely stay here again.

My Doughter and I went for college tour at the university of San Francisco and decide to stay at holiday in . Our flight was late from LaX to SFO by 2 hours and by the time we arrived at the hotel was midnight and the staff who checked in us was outstanding guy and made our stay a pleasant.

Perfect for a couple's weekend getaway. Close to a Wholefoods and a lot of places to eat and drinks.

It is only $10 to $12 dollar Uber ride to ferry building, financial district, or embarcadero.

The room was clean, the bed was so comfortable, the pillows were just right and there were 4 of them. (I want the pillows), the view was out of this world. The Staff was more than helpful always with a smile ( which was real not just a put on one for the guest) My questions were answered with out any problems. Check and in was a breeze. My friend and I had thought about staying somewhere else and I am so glad we did not. Being in the same hotel where the meeting was being held made it so easy. You had every thing within a block or two I am so pleased with my stay. The only thing was that the mini fridge did not work when we checked in but when we reported it it was up and working by the time we got back from the meeting. great place to stay.

Excellent hotel. Nice area. Highly recommend. Short walk to restaurants, bakeries and TRX Training Center.

Great location, the facilities are super clean, the price is perfect,

This hotel has all the basics but the location is great. There are tons of restaurants & cool shops within walking distance (including the Batter Bakery!). Parking is steep but typical of SF. Would stay again.

Great hospitality, area is within walking distance of nice bars and restaurants. Nice restaurant inside of hotel. May look a little sketchy outside but it is really a beauty inside.

The area was nice and safe compared to other areas is SF. Also the hotel was super clean and had a nice bar down stairs.

Whoever checked us in offered to downgrade us from our 2 beds to 1 bed when we already paid for 2....really? I would be impressed with a free upgrade but not downgrade. Also, they didn't seem to want to talk to you for even a second unless you were going to give them a good tip. Public transport wasn't the easiest nearby. We ended up using way more taxis than we intended.

Went down with the guys to the Bay Bridge baseball series. Stayed in SF the first night at this hotel...within two miles of ATT Park so we walked back after. Long walk but not bad; around lots of shopping, food etc.

Nice room with view. Great bar And Resturant. Centrally located and close to everything

I have not checked out yet on the last day , but when I come back to my room at Noon to take my valuables , I found the safe opened and the valuables were not there and the room is empty , cleaned . I called the security and the manager told me that they think that I left already and they entered my room to check . they opened the safe and keep all my valuables for " Lost and Found " . They did return all my valuables to me , thinking that I left already and I forgot stuff in my room . I told them that I never checked out with the front staff then they did not have the right to enter my room before noon. This is the first time that happened to me and It makes me upset and worried .

Great Staff! Room service quick and the food was excellent. Stayed for an entire week and there was only one problem with a young group partying next door. The staff took care of it quickly. concierge was helpful and got us some great discounts! I would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Our stay was very nice. We had a beautiful view of the bay and all of San Francisco. The staff was nice and helpful i enjoyed my stay. And will stay again in the future.

Overall this is a good hotel with secure access on elevators to rooms. Rooms were clean and maintained well, with adequate room for belongings and a room safe. The restaurant had consistently slow service and at least once the order was placed incorrectly. Overall I would stay here again.
