Great pricing along with large rooms, very clean and friendly staff. Centrally located in San Francisco a great place to stay while on vacation. Rooms come with refrigerators and microwaves so great for longer accommodations .

The Nob Hill Motor Inn is clean, quiet, with a friendly and helpful staff!! Parking is included in the room rate which makes this place quite a value! The location is good and near public transit and several restaurants.

Staff not helpful. Without my knowledge they made a copy of my credit card, even though they had already run it through computer for payment. Asked if they would give copy to me on checkout and said yes. But later they wouldn't. Elevator didn't work. I'm 78 y rs old with heart disease, but carried luggage to next level. Parking...

We stayed as a family at this hotel last December. Room is quite big and can fit a family of 4 or 5 comfortably. It is 10 to 15 minutes walk to Fishermans Wharf. The room needs updating and there is a smell of ammonia when you enter the room and it goes away after awhile. Bathroom can be a...

The location is good, and the price was reasonable compared to the rest in SF. The parking was quite handy since is very expensive in SF. The room was quite big and had fridge and microwave, but the walls were really thin. "Breakfast" could be a problem. Other guests arrive and take all they can to their rooms, and the...

Our third time here, so we know the lay of the land. If you don't have a car, then perhaps look elsewhere. If you do, you'll find a rather long in the tooth, quiet, generally well managed, average motel with parking in a great part of the city. Stores and good restaurants and transportation routes are nearby and you can...

We booked a room for Nob Motor Inn and pre-paid via Expedia. When we arrived we were told that they were overbooked due to a computer glitch in their hotel system and instead had booked us at the owner's other hotel in San Francisco. They told us they had called me to notify me (I showed the worker my phone,...

Stayed here with 2 families on the weekend. The price was good, location was good. The rooms are a bit run down with some of the chip board coming off the basin in one room and they smell a bit musty so take a nice candle but bang for buck this is a good hotel for the price and we...

If you have a car and wish to stay in the Middle Polk area then you have to consider the Nob Hill Motor Inn. This is the second time we have stayed here and like the easy access to many of the tourist areas and rather than use the car we use public transport if we want to go to...

If you dont have your own car, you should find another hotel. This hotel is too far from downtown SF. Taxi or Uber is $9-12. Then it is better to spend this money on another hotel closer to downtown. However if you have your own car, Nob Hill Motor Inn, gives you value for money because of free parking. Rooms...

Neighbourhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
