“This is a somewhat rundown motel”
Reviewed 25 May 2012

This is a motel. There are many other motels in the area which are much cheaper and better but do not list on expedia/tripadvisor. If you are interested in a motel search outside of expedia/tripadvisor -- you'll find better deals.

Pros: free parking, free internet
Cons: motel, small room, tiny bathroom, relatively run down, rooms face a wall

Free parking is included, decedent central location (although a bit of a wok from anything but close to the bus lines). Room was old but good sized. Fairly clean, although with the age it didn't feel spotless. Average breakfast buffet in the morning. Not the quietest place. Bedding so so. Check in & out was easy.

We had a large & quiet room with fridge, microwave & coffe-maker and king-sized bed.
The continental breakfast was boring but healthy!!
ALL services were excellent. Great location: near bus stop, grocery store and pharmacy.

Reviewed 23 April 2012

This is a motel. It was in a nice area of San Francisco which is within walking distance (10-15 min) of fisherman's wharf (25 to Alcatraz dock). It appears to be family owned and they are helpful in tell you where to go, where NOT to go (always helpful in a new city) and things in the area worth seeing. This is not a luxury hotel by any means but I would recommend this hotel to a traveler who is looking to be out seeing the sights not spending a lot of time in the room. Taxi to the airport costs about $40 and is close to the trolley line.
