Holiday Inn San Francisco-Fisherman's Wharf
Overall we were not very happy with our stay. Hotel is operated as two separate buildings and we must have been in the old one. Meaning that pool etc was in the other building which was probably a five minute walk from entrance to entrance I know doesn't sound far but makes popping down to the pool a bit longer. Our first night we were put in a room on the first floor and we may as well have been sleeping outside it was so noisy with buses and cars driving by. While the noise did die down by the time we were going to bed I was woken up at 6. We complained the day we got there and were not given another room as apparently they can only give new rooms in the morning this was after me arguing on the phone for a longtime. Two days later we eventually did get a new room and they did take away one nights parking for the inconvenience. Overall the hotel was very tired looking and we did not enjoy our stay there. However the location was ideal.

Cheap and cheerful, perfect for visiting the area
Basic room but perfect for our stay. Comfortable beds, fridge, free wifi, walking distance to fishermans wharf. Definitely recommend if you're on a budget. Only a walk for Alkatraz and golden gate cycle. Highly recommend 'the American Cafe' for the best brunch I've ever had - take a left out of the hotel and go 2/3 blocks. Gold dust is a cool bar on the wharf closeby.

Great location!!
Other then the $50 a night surprise fee, the hotel was awesome! It was in a great loaction near local diners and attractions. It was about a block from Fishermen's Wharf. The area was actually pretty quiet, just standard road noise. The staff was friendly and helpful. Felt safe as well, had to use the key card for the elevator and all the rooms were located inside. Would stay here again

Our stay was great. The room was pretty clean, not perfect, but clean. The bathroom could have been cleaned better. The room heater was not working, but after calling the desk a technician came right up and fixed it within a minute (a switch or circuit breaker was off). The air was clean and clear of annoying smells, e.g. no cover-up perfumy smelling odor was present. It would have been better if the parking were cheaper for these days around Thanksgiving as there were few vehicles. The Denny's restaurant prices were a bit shocking compared to our area, so we didn't eat there but once. Generally we were satisfied with the Holiday Inn visit.
