“Great value near The Wharf”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

I recently stayed at this property mid Feb. It was a welcomed visit. I not only was allowed to check in pretty early, I also was given a nice quiet clean room from Janet at the front desk. It's location for the area is central to a few interesting sights from its Mason street address. Wharf - down the street, Knuckles sports bar - a couple blocks up and around the corner (beware poor to sketchy service on this last visit), Cable Car turn - around 10 min walk, nifty little stores to bring goodies! (beverages, snacks, medicines, etc) back to your room. And the best part - FREE PARKING

Room Tip: Janet at the Front Desk loves flowers!

Completely agree with other comments. Had no idea how popular this area was when we booked so the free parking was a huge asset. The room was clean, although very dated. The shower was reasonable although did not work independently of the bath! The traffic was noisy, having said that we both slept really well and have stayed in far more expensive hotels in the UK with less comfortable beds. The location was brilliant so we had no need to move the car for the 2 nights we were there. Free coffee and a IHOP for breakfast really close by. Loads of good restaurants in the area.

Hotel was not clean, and we could hear noise from all sides of room, and above us. When we treied to open the window it was completely broken. The front staff were helpful and let us park overnite and next day so we saved on parking.

We stayed here for a week in the penthouse suite with family and could not fault this hotel for lcation, location, location and free parking and wifi.

The suite was clean but does need a refurb, not so much the sitting area, but the bedrooms and bathroom need a refit. Having said that the beds were very comfy, linen cleans and towels fresh white.
This was a great base at a good price for eloring the san francisco bay area... The big bus city tours are right outside and the streetcar is at the end of the street. Safeway is nearby for shopping and everything is right on the doorstep....

Despite needing an upgrade especially for the bathroom, i think all said i would come back for location and price alone.

Pros: near Fishermans wharf, cheap, free parking, clean rooms, free wifi, and friendly guest.

Cons: room faces a wall, walls are thin, kind of a party hotel.
