Buena Vista Motor Inn

Reviewed 3 May 2012

Just got back on the 3rd May 2012. Excellent location and value for money. The room we stayed in was a good size, so was the bathroom. Free parking was a plus point. Staff were helpful and friendly. Pastries, fruit and drinks for breakfast put us on until we hit downtown. Would recommend this hotel and even stay there again. Good public bus route to get about San francisco easily accessable from hotel. Caroline & Steve

Room Tip: We stayed on the front of the hotel a bit of a busy road, so if you need a quiet room ask for one on...

Excellent location and good value. Roms may be too small for families. Free Internet and parking is a plus.

There is a string of inexpensive looking hotels on Lombard just west of Van Ness -- we were happy with our choice of the Buena Vista, not least because it has free parking, very good rates, and an excellent location within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf and near several key bus routes. We took the advice of other TA reviewers and asked for a room away from the street -- no view, but a fine night's sleep. The wifi in the room was not all that reliable, but the computer terminal in the lobby worked just fine. The "breakfast" -- sub-ordinary pastries and some bananas and apples -- left a lot to be desired, but with plenty of places to get good food nearby, we didn't care. The front desk staff is friendly and enormously helpful with advice on the best ways to get around town.

Room Tip: Do ask for a room that does not overlook the street, which can be quite noisy.

The hotel is in a lovely location very accesible for fishermans wharf and many other areas of SF are easily reached by buses. There is free parking which another plus point. The rooms are of a lovely side with comfy beds and a good size bathroom. There is also free internet access in reception which is very helpful. Also there is a bus stop outside the hotel where a tour bus stops so great for taking in the sights of the city. Breakfast was lovely with lovely coffee pastries, fruit juice and a lovely selection of teas. Would book again as is a good price and in a fab location.

The room was nice and big with a very comfortable bed. True the building was well used but in a very inviting and comfortable way. Very clean and quaint. The location was very convenient and parking in the basement garage was easy. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who appreciates a good value. Really good coffee and breakfast treats in the morning too!!!
