We chose Columbus Motor Inn due to a combination of availability, location, and price. The motel has on-site parking, which never seemed full, though I'm not sure whether guests are charged for parking or not - since we know San Francisco public transportation well, we dropped off our rental car at SFO and took BART and a taxi to the hotel.
Everything about the hotel was average and adequate - except the location, which is great. You could get better views or be closer to San Francisco highlights, but it's enjoyable walking around San Francisco and the location is close enough to everything (and/or public transit). We needed to do laundry, which is not available on-site, but there is a laundromat a couple of blocks away.
The motel seemed strangely quiet - as I mentioned the parking lot was never full. We only saw other people in the lobby a couple of times, and only saw someone in the hallway once. The staff was congenial, the rooms were clean, and the facilities were fine. We would definitely stay there again.More
