    Parking, large size room, elevator to garage, location, staff. A great stay...we'd come again. Thanks!

    Location and price. Place could use an update in decor, a bit tired but clean and functional. Staff was very nice.

    Near SF Fisherman's Wharf

    Carpet looks dirty probably because of the color? It makes the room looks not so clean.

    Good room and good value for money

    Ice machine on level one not working and the staircase smelled.

    Location and car park

    Our room was not clean. We were bitten by something. Our room was much smaller than the picture on the website and looked out on to a blank wall 3 feet away. It was nevertheless quiet. Rooms at the front face on to a very busy road. Perhaps best would be a room at the back on the 3 rd floor above the blank wall. Breakfasts were in the lobby and generally there were not enough seats. The hotel was undermanned with only one person manning the reception, answering the phone and attending the breakfast.

    The hotel is walking distance to Fisherman Wharf. Free parking and free wi-fi are plus factor.

    The area for breakfast is rather small. But not a problem, as the guest is allowed to bring the food and drinks to their rooms.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    The location to fishermans wharf. Also the free parking .

    The reception areas were a bit scruffy. Also the bedroom really smelled of cigerettes and we had booked a non smoking room.

  • Couple
    5.8

    The breakfast had a delicious assortment of baked goods and the coffee was great. I also enjoyed the roof top patio. It granted a beautiful view morning and night.

    General Clenliness was lacking in room, elevator and public spaces.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    the location, had a breakfast, free internet and printer access made organising tours and airport check in easy. large rooms.

    The hotel is dated could do with a revamp...but then the prices would most likely go up!

  • Family with children
    9.2

    Clean room, comfortable beds and friendly staff. All in all we were very happy with the hotel. Good value for money.

    in the rooms facing the street you hear the traffic loud all night. However, the staff was very helpful and let us change room.

  • Single
    7.4

    I found the young man in reception very helpful. He got my boarding passes for my onward air journey and arranged for me to take a shared private bus to the airport.The bed room was clean and the bathroom provided adequate supplies.

    I found the breakfast less than adequate. The seating arrangement for eating was the sofa at reception. The most acceptable part was fresh fruit and the orange juice was not bad. I think the only bread was a pastry with paper plates and tetra pack containers for tea and coffee.

    location

    breakfast is always the same everyday, aircon thermostat could not be lower than 60F, sometimes no internet connection

  • Single
    8.8

    Excellent value for basic rooms, free onsite parking, free breakfast, free wifi and a great location.

    We only had some issues with free wifi not working, but in past stay here it was just fine.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Proximity to the waterfront (Fisherman's Wharf, Golden Gate Bridge), Museum of Fine Arts, shopping and restaurants along Lombard, Chestnut and Filmore. And the free, covered and safe parking. All this meant we could leave the car and walk to many sites. A definite plus!

    We had a room facing Lombard Street. Noisy at times (but not unbearable). If I booked again I would inquire about a room away from the street.

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    Hotel is close to Fishermans Wharf and Marina Area. It is a budget hotel and offers free parking which is favourable in San Francisco down town.
