Great Location
This hotel was perfect for the price and location. The weather was great, not a lot of people out. It was the perfect time to visit Fisherman’s Warf, although many of the attractions were closed.

Good 6.0
This hotel is old * it shows it.they didn't even have coffee or tea in room. Finally got tea after called office. Was a floor difference from room into bathroom & tripped on it several times. The water changes temperature when using it.There was no fridge or microwave as listed online. Room door had no safety latch other than deadbolt. No meal of any kind offered here. Pretty dissappointing. We wont be back

The location is the best part of it
The towels were far from fresh and the bathroom sink was clogged. Other than the location, not much to impress at this hotel.

Exceptional 10.0
Great location and price
Was worried about all the negative reviews. But I was willing to take the gamble for the location, price and free parking. The room was small (cheapest room, the other rooms that were open for cleaning we're much bigger) but clean, the bed was comfortable. My requests we're fulfilled quickly. Noise cannot be blamed on the hotel due to the homeless population right outside, but the hotel is secure with key access to elevators and stairs. Parking was closed down at night so your vehicle is secure also. Would definitely stay again.

Great Place Especially for the Price
The Wharf Inn was a nice place to stay. First, you receive free parking in a gated parking lot. Then, the bed was very comfortable. Third, the bathrooms were pretty clean. Lastly, they were able give grace to us to stay in our room past check out time due to circumstances out of our control during our trip. It's also right by Fisherman's Wharf and easy to get to everything we needed to.

Not as pictured
The room was dirty when we arrived and the room was not as pictured on the website the wallpaper was falling off, the floor was dirty and the heater didnt work well. The staff was friendly but the room was horrible and i paid for a mini suite not worth it.

Fair 4.0
The location is perfect and has the potential to be a much nicer hotel. The hotel & rooms are severely outdated (restrooms have been somewhat updated). We had no towels upon check in, no hot water or so we thought (plumbing doesn’t match cold/hot on faucet), ran out of TP and had to hunt someone down to find more and our room was 80+ degrees at all times. On a good note, the beds were comfortable and clean & we could walk to everything from our location.

All about Location, no more
This is an old motel. Set your standards LOW. But the beds are comfortable and water hot. But this hotel is all about location. We could walk almost anywhere and that is what you pay for. Everything around us from Starbucks, IHOP, Pier 39, Fisherman’s Wharf, Ghirardelli, Beach, Coit Tower, China Town (1mi), you could probably walk to Lombard Street but I drove, great food, souvenir shops, CVS, Ross, Trader Joe’s. No refrigerator or microwave in the room. They have an ice machine in the hallway. I ran to Target and bought a cooler to put stuff in. No room service at all due to COVID. We were there 4 nights and I had to ask for towels etc everyday.

Pleasant but needing some attention.
Our stay was pleasant but couldn’t help but notice that even during the pandemic, trash was piling up in hallways or trash bins. Elevator needed some obvious housekeeping. Staff at check in and out were very nice.
