          • Great value and location, one free internet station at the reception. Nice, helpful service stuff, my heavenly home and good little Motel for the price. And a nice deli a block behind is the Fort Mason deli, fisherman's Wharf is just 15 minutes walking distance away and the staff is courtieous and friendly.

            The area for breakfast is rather small, rooms at the front face on to a very busy road and unfortunately, the beds are very uncomfortable. The elevator is too slow.

          • The location was great, in our stay there was no single problem related to the hotel and the staff at the front desk was very helpful. Bed was very comfortable and elevator was quiet. The breakfast pastries were delicious.

            Low value for money and unless you're paying the SAVER rate its not worth. The lobby is extremely worn and dirty looking, our room needed a paint job badly. Noisy ice machine across the hall and the pillows could be updated.

            Not a great place to stay and needs new windows. Fruit looked old and very small pool.

            After a stay of a few days the breakfast offerings become boring.

          • The location was excellent, this place was much nicer and more comfortable, the staff were very courteous and pleasant. Our room was great and coffee was good. The employees were very friendly.

            Hotel on busy lambord street and breakfast is served in the small lobby area.

          • Clean , good location and there's a street car stop just a block away. Cheap for San Francisco and great rate. A little park and yacht harbour, free Internet access is avaiLable in the lobby, the staff on reception are very helpful and friendly.

            Hotel interior looks very tired, bad front desk service and broken furniture and a bit dirty carpets in room. Hard pillows, s old soap in the soap dish and there was mold behind the toilet, continental breakfast was only ok.
