Friends Weekend
The hotel was amazing for the price. Could not fault the cleanliness and the staff. Location is great, the Marina is a much better area to stay as opposed to downtown SF. I booked here for a quiet stay away from the hustle of the city, however, we were put in a room on the side of the inn which meant we were by the Jaxon bar which was very noisy some nights, into the early hours. This did not massively effect our stay but if you're looking for a quiet stay, I would ask for a room in the middle or the other end of the inn. Cannot knock the value and would definitely recommend it! We would happily stay again!

The perfect find!!
It was fabulous!! From checking in to checking out. Lovely staff. Great roomy room. Staff told us where to go for breakfast (with 10% off.) Free parking, wifi and less than 2 miles from Fisherman’s Wharf. Would definitely stay there again. Thank you!! 😊

Lovely hotel
Beautiful hotel, very well decorated, bit of noise outside but this is San Francisco. Only negative point - checking in through the night window was a bit impersonal - made me wonder if this was a bad area. Nice walk to the golden gate bridge & hotel is situated on Lombard street which has the famous crooked street not far down the road. Reception staff very helpful for directions and advice. Restaurants around the corner are highly recommended. Would definitely go back again. Thank you for a lovely stay.
