Great location, clean, free hot breakfast, wonderful customer service, what else could you ask for? Sure, the view from our hotel room sucked, but we didn't pay money to go to San Fran to sit in a hotel room. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone who is making a trip.

After reading some of the reviews of this hotel I was guardedly optimistic about our choice of locations. However, I am pleased to say our stay was outstanding!

We recently had 2 stays at this hotel, 31st December 2012 to 4th January 2013 and 16th January to 18th January 2013. On both occasions check in was a dream.

This hotel is very close to the attractions of Fishermans Wharf. The rooms are very clean and comfertable. The breakfast is great one of the better hotel breakfasts. The only downside is the parking which you have to do valet (which is costly). Good place for families to stay.
