Superb 9.0 From 445 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
We absolutely loved our stay at Columbus Inn! We traveled in from L.A. and wanted something close to Pier 39 and after looking at tons of reviews for many other places, this one seemed to have the best reviews. And now we know why. Super spacious room, very clean, quiet, amazing view of San Francisco from the balcony, covered and free parking, blocks away from the pier. We will definitely stay here again every time we visit San Francisco!!

Superbly satisfied!!
Looking at the pictures of this hotel made me question staying.. reading the reviews convinced me... and I’m so glad!!! It is perfectly situated for a variety of activities. The rooms (although they don’t look it) are nice, clean, comfortable, and not as outdated as they look. We had a fabulous stay here, and I too will stay here again.. and again!!

Very Good 8.0
great location
Check in was very easy and fast but unfortunately our room had a issue with the lock on front door so we had to be move. Alex at the front desk was quick to move us and he apologized which we understand issues like this happen all the time. The location of this motel can not be better right near Fisherman’s wharf , Chinatown and other great places to eat.

Best experience in San Francisco yet
We had s great time. Alex G snd staff were top notch. Went above and beyond to accommodate us and our bikes. Room view was excellent. Was very entertaining to just stand on the balcony. Location was perfect. Will stay again and again.

Very nice for the money. Clean and nice staff. I would definitely stay there again.
Kelly, us1 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
While the rooms and furniture are older, it was still clean and in good shape. The only thing that was subpar was the mattress and pillows - definitely not the most comfortable. But again, for an older establishment at such a good price, it was overall a good stay.
