    Perfect location

    Wharf Inn is conveniently located and parking was free. Front desk staff were friendly. Awesome service. Rooms were spacious. Bathrooms were partially renovated. Could use a coat of paint, but other than that, it was awesome. Well worth it.

    Our stay was fine but paino tell was the biggest headache they double charged stating it didn't go through when it did so paid twice had to wait for them to figure out how to reverse the second charge then when I got home found that they were continuing to add charges on to my credit card 😡 the manager took no responsibility for the overcharges making up excuses about how their system runs and that is my fault because I paid with a different card than the one I made the reservation with. They said they will make a refund on my credit card so now I'm just waiting to see if that actually happens I've contacted my credit card company about the situation so if they don't put the refund through then my credit card company will take action

    Was told from front desk staff there was a shuttle to pick us up from the airport. Upon arrival waiting for shuttle, found out there was not one. No communication from staff. Had to ask to have our room made up. Then when it was done it was not a good job. VERY scary elevator. Don't use it.

    Heart of San Fran

    We chose this hotel as it was in the heart of all the action near pier 38, Alcatraz and all the tourist action. We loved being able to walk to everything and the rooms are very comfortable. Concierge is available for bags before and after check out which made it possible for us to explore the city in comfort. Night and early morning noise is unavoidable due to location and we would stay here again.

    The front desk staff was friendly and helpful, coffee & newspaper available at front desk was convenient, the house cleaners kept our room stocked with clean towels, toiletries, and did a very good job cleaning every day. It was in an excellent location for touring Fisherman's Wharf & Pier 39, and Chinatown and many other sightseeing spots were within walking distance.

    Comfortable hotel with the perfect location!

    The location of this hotel is simply amazing. It is the perfect starting point to experience the city. Many restaurants and shops, the beach, views to Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge are around the corner. The service is very good and the staff is very friendly. If we had something we needed, the staff made it possible for us. Also the room was comfortable, clean and provided amenities such as tea and coffee making facilities. We really had a pleasant stay at this hotel. It has an excellent price-performance-ratio.

    Other than the police being conveniently close to the wharf, it's not worth the money. Dirty noisy inconsiderate neighbors pressure washing sidewalk at 5:30 in the morning. First-time stay never say again.
