It's not modern but it has it's own charm. Old school yes, but that's why the rooms are very spacious. In fact we were surprise to find a divider to the sitting/living room area. Large TV, coffee maker, fridge, complementary coffee. To top it all it has ocean views! Rates are reasonable for SFO. Ocean view is a major plus....

We were able to park under the Inn just as if we were staying at the Inn. We entered the restaurant and were welcomed to sit anywhere. The waitress was excellent - local knowledge was superb and her interaction was just right. Food was as expected for a hotel diner - burger was great, but rib-eye was a little chewy....

This is a well kept secret. I've been here before, but didn't want to spill the beans and have them raise the prices or get too booked. This place is plucking cool! Every window has a great view and three sides of the inn show the ocean. We got the northern exposure, showing the beach and the turquoise townhouse across...

Great place to stay! Easy, free parking right under hotel...loved the Seal Rock Restaurant right in the hotel...I highly recommend an omlette and english muffin...their coffee excellent!! We stayed in the Seaview Suite on the 3rd floor and it was a most beautiful view of the sea and parks from this room as it is a corner room with huge,...

On a sunny morning around the corner from the Cliff House, this inn's restaurant was the only place open for breakfast...you can see the wind-swept coastal trees and the Pacific Ocean from the tables by the window. Service was very good but my food was just average...good poached eggs with A-1 sauce, but mediocre toast --seemingly from a package of...

Nice spacious room and I mean really spacious. There was even a room divider to block out noise and provides a little privacy. The hotel is in walking distance to the beach, Sutro Baths and a couple of restaurants. We used the Muni, which was right outside the hotel, to go to Golden Gate Park and Fisherman's Wharf. If there...

I live in the country, and a trip to San Francisco can cause sensory overload. This place is my new solution--I can visit the city, stay in a peaceful setting, and dip in and out of the buzz. I loved being able to get up in the morning and walk down to the ocean without any kind of shell to...

We choose this inn because it was less than a mile from family that we were visiting. It seemed to be a quiet location across from a park, but our room was right above the city bus resting spot (locked bathroom for bus drivers). There were 3 or more buses starting, stopping and idling at all times of the day...

I have stayed here twice now and plan to go back again. The reason I chose this location in the first place is because I'm from San Francisco and like being down by the ocean, away from the busy downtown areas, and with easy access parking. It's not flashy or chic but I love waking up and having coffee and...

Our second multi-night stay, and we'll be back. A 20 minute drive (or longer bus ride) into downtown and most tourist destinations, but the large size of the rooms, free covered parking, safe location, competent management, and reasonable rates make the drive worthwhile. We've stayed only on the third floor, where rooms have fireplaces and some ocean views. It's nice...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated next to the quiet, scenic surroundings of Sutro Heights Park and Land's End, we are located away from the noisy downtown traffic and crowds, yet still in the city in a resort-like location. We are just a block up the hill from the historic Cliff House and a few steps further to miles of beach along Ocean Beach. Enjoy a wonderful breakfast or lunch at our own restaurant which serves all day and every day. Our spacious guest rooms, many of which have excellent park and ocean views, provide our guests with many amenities including free high-speed Wi-Fi , cable TVs, dual-line phones with voice mail, free locals calls, in-room iron/ironing boards, and hair dryers. Other hotel amenities incude complimentary but limited covered parking, a private patio with swimming pool, ping pong and badminton. All our guest roomsrooms are non-smoking and some with fireplaces. So if you are ready to try something different in San Francisco then consider us as your home away from home along San Francisco's ocean front. ... more   less
