“Reasonable priced comfortable clean hotel”
Reviewed 4 October 2011

I stayed in this hotel at the beginning of September 2011. When we arrived at about 2pm we were given 3 rooms as booked at the rear of the hotel and was warned that one of the rooms may not be ready due to 1 of us originally being booked at the front. As soon as we found out which room it was we spoke to the cleaners and they went to clean it straight away. Check in time is 3pm, so we couldn't complain.

We then walked to Fisherman's Wharf and pier 33 for the boat to Alcatraz it took about 20mins and although it is up hill going back it is an easy walk. The hotel is close to a muni bus stop for the lazy and less mobile.

The hotel rooms are of a good size with a fridge and microwave, coffee making facilities. The bathroom is a good size as well and has a bath with shower over. The sink is just outside the door with a hairdryer. Rooms are cleaned daily and you have a choice of having your towels changed daily by leaving them on the floor.

Would I stay here again?...Yes. Would I recommend it to a friend?...Definately.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the rear, not so much road noise.

When I was looking for a hotel in San Francisco my main concern was to find a hotel close to pier attractions area and with a parking area. That’s why I chose this hotel: it is located in a very quiet area, one block away from Van Ness Ave and few blocks away from the pier area as you could go there by walking. Besides that, it offers free parking, which is very unusual in a big city like that.
Rooms were fresh, recently remodeled, in a classic style. The only drawback is that they don’t offer breakfast.
I recommend this hotel.

This motel is highly recommended for those who want to stay on the budget.
For only 98$ per night it was way better than expected. Beside the old shower everything was really good. You have a bus line to fisherman's wharf,chinatown and union square only 1 block away. The neightborhood is quiet nice.
Pros: Big room, big TV, grest stuff, free parking, location
Cons: old shower

Reviewed 22 August 2011

This is a GREAT little motor inn. The price is right, it's convenient to the Pier and other San Francisco sights, and the parking is covered and free. The people were very nice. I'd highly recommend budget-conscious travelers to take a look. I stayed here twice in 2011.

The only downside, and this is true with almost all hotel/motels in the city, is that you're directly on the street. Rooms facing the street are noisy. A trick I learned many years ago while staying in hotel rooms facing the street/highway worked just fine here. Turn on the fan in the heater/air conditioner no matter what the weather, and bring ear plugs. And don't blame the hotel. This is going to be true of any small motel/motor inn.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back, or bring ear plugs.
