2/10 Poor

Would not recommend
I would NOT recommend staying at this hotel. There are a couple of positive things. It is close to both Pier 39 (10 min walk and the Wharf (5 min walk). Plus secure free parking (if available). However so many negative things so far outweigh anything positive. The rooms are very noisy, paper thin walls so you can hear EVERYTHING, outside and your neighbors walls, old rooms, old everything from shower to bed (bed had lumps and severe sagging. Drafty muggy rooms, heater that did work but thermostat did not so it is either on or off and gets hot if you do not turn off. No AC if it is warm, small fan in closet. Our room had one chair so if there are 2-3 people good luck sitting anywhere. Bath fan very noisy, water in bathroom was either warm or cold, never got hot, some towels looked stained and dirty, we were told the room had view of the hills but all we saw was a wall, no night stand near the bed, electrical plugs were so loose nothing would stay plugged in, Wifi is slow and drops off all the time if that matters to you, I can go on but the point is that if we had really known we would have stayed somewhere else. Final thing is we dropped some coffee on the bed by accident, not everone had a place to sit someone had to sit on the bed, we told front desk and housekeeping right away about the accident, at check out they charged us $50 for sheets? If you spill a liquid at a restaurant on the table cloth do they charge you to replace it?? Not customer service focused, only on $

Great location
It was our 2nd stay at this hotel. It's an older hotel with no thrills no thrills but it was clean, Had parking available and close to all the activities in fisherman's wharf and pier 39 area.. Based on the noise from the street below I would not suggest getting a balcony room facing Mason street. The partial view of the ocean and waterfront was great but not when it came to the noise level. Suggest an Interior room.

Noisy But Great Location
First what was positive about the stay: The staff was great. It has free secured parking. It had an elevator. The room was very clean without that cloying sanitary spray smell. It was in a superb location for walking all over Fisherman’s Wharf, Chinatown, Coit Tower and beyond. The slightly less positive: The building was old and the room was small. The only window opened out into the walkway for most rooms. In our case, our window opened up into a very small area adjacent to the walkway that faced another window so we could hear the other occupants and they could undoubtedly hear us, plus we could hear everyone talking as they moved down the walkway. However, we were so tired by the end of the day, we still fell asleep easily in spite of the talking we could easily hear. We would definitely stay here again.

Excellent location!
Amazing location, we didn't expect to have a/c in our room but we did. Our family really enjoyed our stay and loved how close we were to the trolley, big hop on and off bus, restaurants, Fisherman's Wharf, and Pier 39.
