We stayed at the Wharf in January 2019 three days before our cruise. The location is perfect for exploring! The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. We did ask for a room in the back due to reviews we had read about noise and we slept great every night. On our

This place is located right near the Wharf....within walking distance to restaurants, tour boats, Pier 39, etc. The rooms are clean, the price was very reasonable for its location. What struck me the most was the friendly and helpful staff....can't have been any better! We

I checked in and was told to park anywhere in back, the only thing was, there weren't any spots open. When I asked if I could move the cones that were blocking off three parking spots, I was told no. Free parking is on a first come and first serve basis. Finally someone left

We stay at the Wharf Inn every time we go to San Fran. It is not a plush hotel but it offers FREE Parking (which is very expensive down at the wharf) and is in a great location just one block off the main street. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfy so this suits our

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I very much like the texting hotel concierge, the room was very clean and had all the modern amenities you would expect from a high caliber hotel. The location is excellent (unless you need BART access); it is right on the famous

I don’t know, but if you can book on the next block where there are several hotels for a little more, I would do it. Lots of street people screaming all night....needs a facelift....rude people... we wouldn’t ever stay there again

Hi Melodie! Parking was free but, is now a $35.00 a night charge. I apologize for the confusion, but I hope this information cleared some things up! Lisa Davis Sales Manager

There is enough room to sit out there. There is a smaller balcony off the dining area...not sure if there was seating already out there, but you could definitely bring chairs out. The other balcony was off the living room and was larger, and there is a table and chairs out there. As a side note, you can hear the seals barking from out there...very cool!
