Pros: close to ocean and walking trails, close to zoo, muni stop across street, very clean, Free onsite parking Cons: In "fog belt", older property, so fewer plugs, small bathroom, less soundproofing. Muni is noisy (ear plugs are provided if you need them; we didn't), ask for a room In the back away from the street

I was able to make a reservation with little notice and the owner stayed up till late in the evening for us to arrive and was very helpful and friendly, even upgrading our room. It was perfect as a romantic getaway, a little gem set by the sea and away from the hustle and bustle of the main city. It...

Very pretty little motel, and $150 for a room with a full kitchen isn't a bad deal in SF. However, the two most important things for us are a good mattress and decent water pressure. Mattress seemed both very firm, and lumpy--neither of us slept well all night. (We do a lot of hotel travel, and have rarely slept so...

We chose this motel near the SF Zoo and Great Highway for one night, because everything in or near downtown SF was at $400+ per night due to a conference in town. We also were interested in the historic and art deco architecture aspects of this 1930s hotel with 'streamline moderne' design. The people were great: very friendly and accommodating,...

The motel itself is great - architecturally interesting, immaculately clean, well maintained, good value and quite the friendliest owners. However, before you book there are three things you should know: 1/ this is the foggiest part of a famously foggy city. In our trip in early August, it only lifted for an hour a day in mid afternoon, even though...

As a big fan of San Francisco, I have stayed all over the city. I had never stayed, nor explored much, over in the Sunset/Ocean Beach area. We wanted to take our 3 year old to the zoo and Golden Gate Park for his first trip to SF and found this little gem. We knew we didn't want to stay...

This was a lovely calm & relaxing day in San Francisco! We got in early, and the owner let us check in a hour early. He was amazingly helpful & kind We are here on our honeymoon, and this might be the sweetest place we have stayed so far!

This unique trendy motel was perfect for what we wanted. moderate price without selling our first born child. It is across from the Zoo, has some great little breakfast eateries within a block, the ocean is close, rooms are clean. There is even a little childrens playground and jucuzzi on site. Chester, their employee was awesome--polite and a very pleasant...

Good quiet location in SF. The muni is nearby, we didn't really find it that noisy at all. By car, you are a short drive to everything else in SF. The cleaning staff does an excellent job maintaining the rooms and grounds. The carpet in the room we stayed in looks like it is due to be changed though. The...

Cute place to stay in SF. VERY close to the beach and several good breakfast joints close by. The MUNI runs right in front of the motel and it was very easy to just hop on and take it downtown to visit all of the main SF attractions. Even though our room was right by the street, the sound of...
