Thank you Tuscan and Roy, for providing a memorable stay with quick yet warm accommodations; from the Champagne bottle to the beautiful letter acknowledging the occasion for my stay makes this place a hit on my list. Great convenient location, clean rooms with a modern touch, and a staff that delivers excellent customer service to enhance the overall experience. Thanks...

Hi Hokie1981 - Thanks for staying with us and for taking the time to share your kind words and feedback for improvement.

Feels really old, you can hear outside noise all night, for the money you pay you can get in a better location and better hotel. Wouldn't stay here again. Rooms are really small. Clean hotel, just not a 3 star

The over all appearance of the hotel, makes you believe that you paid for something nice to spend your vacation. But once insided, its a different story. This overpriced hotel is sooo cramped and small, that is makes you want to leave.

We took our granddaughter here for her first trip to San Francisco. Perfect location for all of the touristy activities in Fisherman's Wharf. This was our second visit to this propoerty and the staff was totally accomodating and friendly. The rooms have been renovated and priced very reasonably for this area. Would stay here again.

This hotel is considered to be in the Fisherman’s Wharf area but be forewarned its not as close as it appears to be on the map. Its about 3 blocks in and off to the side from the wharf area. So you’re looking at about a 15 minute walk to where all the action is. If this doesn’t bother you...

Hi Janet E - Thanks for staying with us and for taking the time to share your kind words and open feedback. We really are only 2 blocks from Fisherman's Wharf.

We stayed here for three nights back in June and it was great. The location is perfect for Fisherman's Wharf, the piers (Alcatraz), cable car and Lombard street and there are super markets, cafes, bars, restaurants and shops nearby as well. Rooms were small but really nice and clean, staff were always very friendly and helpful and the wine reception...

Great place, kind employs and priceless location, just few minutes walk to Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39. My room was clean and comfy, not too big, but reasonable for a king bed room. Booked and paid through web has a very reasonable price.

Nice hotel in Fisherman's Wharf. Kind of expensive, but a good deal for the area. Check-in was slow because I had to wait for a while for a valet person to show up at 8pm; $50 + tax is pretty ridiculous for parking, by the way. Rooms are relatively small but are nicely decorated and the beds are extremely comfortable....

Reviewed 21 July 2014

Just set back from Fishermans wharf the Tuscan Inn is a clean and modern hotel within striking distance of pier 39 (restaurants) pier 33 ( Alcatraz) and the city sightseeing tours. Offers complimentary coffee and great apples, the only criticism is the parking costs at $55 + tax per night which is hard to justify, but typical of most cities.
