For in city value, this is an excellent choice. It is in a busy neighborhood with lots of restaurants within walking distance. It is easy to find; the parking is free and inside the structure. And the price is reasonable.

The free parking was one of the draws of this place as parking in San Fran is so expensive. The rooms were a little dated but nice and clean and the WiFi works great. We were offered an internal room, which had a view of a wall but this was fine as we just wanted a quiet night's sleep, which...

Most hotels in San Francisco are dated and this one is no exception. We knew that on booking, but they have looked after this hotel, it is clean and tidy, and we experienced good service. We had a double room, which was large for such an older hotel. The bathroom had everything we needed. The air conditioning was a plus,...

We were booked in for 2 nights at the Chelsea Motor Inn on Lombard St. Apparently Lombard St is famous for being the longest and most convoluted road in the world and is the most photographed for this reason. I can confirm that it is very convoluted and long and when driving along it, you think you have come to...

We stayed here for the second time and liked it again. The check in was easy; the room was clean. WiFi free and fast. Parking included. We had a room on the third floor, facing the street; it was a bit noisy but we both slept well. Bonus: a bit of a view of the Golden Gate Bridge. :-) And:...

My friend and I stayed here for five nights in April -- it was perfect for us. Roomy -- comfy beds -- great people at the front desk all the time -- hop on/hop off bus stop right on the corner -- walking distance to the food market and great restaurants -- just wish we'd stayed longer!

The price for the weekend we stayed combined with the pretty good reviews was what initially drew me in. When we actually got there, we discovered the location was great! If you were like us and only traveled by public transportation, this hotel is in an excellent location. Most of the places we wanted to go were 20-30 minutes away...

Highly recommend! Very good place. A Diner called Mel's Drive In is open until late and very close to the hotel. Other then that, great restaurants near by! Rooms are big and bed is very comfortable. Service is excellent! Every employee will make the best to assist you in whatever you need. My room was very silent. Free Parking.

We enjoyed a great stay here at the Chelsea Motor Inn, its on Lombard Street, great location for commuting into the heart of San Francisco, as its in a nice district. 15/20 min walk from Frishermans Wharf, 5 min drive. Rooms were clean tidy and big. Free Parking, Free WIFI, sadly no breakfast facilities and none particularly near by.

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.
