I'm sad to say , after 20 years or so of this being my secret spot to stay in SF , whenever traveling solo , I noticed all the signage was unlit , as I pulled into the lot . The Star Motel is no longer in business . Its site has been taken over by a school of design...

If you are looking for a clean, safe, friendly front desk place at a great rate, this is the place to stay. We have stayed here numerous times and have never had a problem. Parking is free which is a $50 savings alone. Easy online reservations and close proximity to the the wharf area. Ballpark is a short cab ride...

easy friendly check in, paid about $90.00 + tax for the room which was very small but clean and updated. My big mistake was not waiting for a room away from the street, the noise was terrible. These rooms should be sold at a discounted rate. Free internet was nice as I was on a brief business trip and needed...

We booked a room with king bed on their website. However, when we checked in, they gave us a queen bed. We went arguing with the person at the checkin counter, he said according to his computer, that's the room assigned to us. Even though the price shown in his computer is exactly the price for king bed on their...

This is a great location for the price, but be sure you're in shape to do some walking. Everything is close, if you consider 8-10 blocks of up and down close, but this is San Francisco. There is some street noise in the front, which can be overcome by running the in-room fan. Rooms were very clean, they have in-room...

You get what you pay for. Great reception, room OK - clean and tidy. Make sure you book a room near the back of the motel as the front could be noisy being on a busy road. Breakfast is pastry's (fresh) and orange juice which you go down to reception and eat sat on a chair in reception - but...

This little motel is modest and very clean. We stayed here for 5 days. The motel is located on Lombard Street, just 6 blocks away from the crooked part. You can walk to Fisherman's Wharf in about :15. Of the many positives, I would have to say that their BEST attraction is that they offer free parking to overnight guests....

We have stayed at the Star Motel on at least 6 different trips to San Francisco. It is located in a good neighborhood (felt safe walking around with young daughter at night). The staff is always friendly and helpful. Rooms are always clean & the shower feels like a nice massage after walking around all day.

The staff at the Star Motel quoted me a price of $90.00 and this place was recommend by friends. When I saw the Motel I thought it was a little over priced. (It was too late to book anywhere else) I asked a few other guests what the price of their rooms were and most of them told me $70.00....

Located in the Cow Hollow section of San Francisco, this motel is nicely located for excellent restaurants within short walking distance,longer walk to Ghiradelli Square and Fishermans walk,accessibility to public transportation. The well-maintained rooms are larger than most motels, with separate closets, sturdy plastic coffee cups (not styrofoam) better-than-usual amenities, good maps and guides. The front desk was genial and...
