Great location
This hotel is located in the perfect spot just a couple blocks up from the wharf. It has free parking and the bed was nice and comfy. The hotel is old and needs work.

Just an ok stay
Stay was ok. Expected hotel to be nicer. No drawers for clothes. Bathroom toilet too close to wall. Leg up against wall. Left maid service sign for room to be cleaned and was not. Had to call to have room cleaned. Only good thing was that it was close to fishermans warf.

Great location, fair price but loud
Thos is our 4th stay at this hotel. It has a awesome location for Fisherman's wharf and pier 39 area. Draw back is very noisy wirh most rooms. We have stayed in four different parts of the hotel. Each part has its different noise, alot from the streets around it but hotel noise too. Maid carts are super loud when rolling around too early, 5 workers in garage area this trip pounding on things very loud, and a few outside tables with people talking right by room for hours, no naps for us. Street noise hop on/off bus all day on one side and loud street car with bell on arrival on other side, car driving by late can be loud too. Trash day super load at 4am..commercial trash bins echo on Mason as have tk be pulled out in street and back..UGH love the price for location but beware not great night sleep. Office staff friendly and close to buses and cable car stop.

Quick check-in, covered parking, great location. Housekeeping was touch-and-go; our room wasn’t serviced after our first night of a four-day stay, and then not serviced until nearly 4pm on another day. Our room had only one tiny window, which opened to a hallway. Price and location were the best parts. The bed was way too soft and rolled us both into the middle.

Location location location
It was the perfect location for a first trip to San Francisco. Affordable with friendly staff. Sightseeing made easy with buses close at hand and all sorts of restaurants. Also close to boat trips. Appreciated having coffee maker in the room and daily maid visit.. don't forget to leave a tip for the maids! Would definitely go back there and they are updating the hotel.

Paying for location not comfort
Usually it’s good but this time the room was in the back near the linen spot so it was constant sound and the light was out of the socket and they had those terrible slide bathroom doors but over all 6/10 if you’re tryna be near the wharf

Older motel in a great location
Great location close to pier 39. Older facility with paper-thin walls and ceiling (the kids upstairs were playing trampoline on the beds). Very little of their on-site parking.

2/10 Poor

Bedbugs and no hot water
First room Bedbugs. Seriously Bed bugs. Shower mixing valve was broken resulting in cold shower. Was issued new room with no bedbugs but that shower mixing valve was broken too. Cold showers for everyone
