Good 7.6 From 815 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Good but not excellent!
Very good location, clean and comfortable rooms. Good breakfast but not enough space to eat; shower water pressure not good enough. Overall very satisfied.
Dejan, us3 night family trip
Good 6.0
Although free parking is advertised it's very limited. Free breakfast is a pastry, muffin, apple or banana and limited cereal eaten either standing up, in the small lounge upstairs or in your room. At nearly R4000 per night it most definitely wasn't value for money. Don't be misled to think you can walk back from the Big Bus terminal in Fisherman's Wharf unless you're a mountaineer. For $75 you can hire several taxis every where and not have to wait 2+ hours for the Big Bus to complete it's route.

Exceptional 10.0
Perfect Place for Us
This is the perfect place for us to stay when we visit San Francisco. This is our second time staying and it's a short walk to Ghirardelli Square, with minimal hills which also puts you in walking distance to Pier 39. Since parking is included, on our first stay we actually walked from the hotel, through the Presidio and across the Golden Gate and back.

Great except for parking
Parking is free if you can get a space available when you get there early enough

Very Good 8.0
Good stay, but expensive for what it is.
It was a decent enough Motel. It was very expensive but so was the rest of San Francisco. The parking is very useful, although when we arrived all the slots were taken, they told us to double park and they moved it so it wasn’t too bad. The room was comfortable although the ice machine was opposite the door, it could have been located elsewhere in my eyes. A decent breakfast.
