Little gem
Great motel. Booked this as we were on a budget but start to finish we had no complaints. Located equidistant from Fisherman's wharf and China town with a heap of Italian restaurants a couple of blocks away and two decent supermarkets within 5 minutes walk, food options are plentiful. Along with being a block from the cable car turnaround this motel is way better than its stars suggest. Big rooms, seriously comfortable bed and location location location. Big Al is a minefield of information (and, just quietly, a seriously nice dude). The only shortcoming is the lack of bar fridge or cooking facilities but other than that, I can't recommend this place enough. If youre looking for a cheaper option from Union Square with enough room to breath and with transport and tourist attractions within easy walk while still being quiet and comfortable, well, look no further.

Ideal location
This hotel was in an ideal location to access all of the major attractions and iconic places of San Fran The free parking was a major benefit as it is very expensive to park in general so that was the main reason for choosing this hotel. Receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful and provided recommendations of things to see, places to eat and drink. Overall very happy for a 2.5 star hotel.

Great hotel
This hotel is fabulous! Clean bathroom, comfortable beds, free parking and great location. There were 4 of us and we had a large room. The only negatives is no microwave or refrigerator. You could get a refrigerator for a little extra but we chose not to. No complaints about this hotel. Quite and clean. We loved our stay!!

Good for the price
This is a good place to stay on a budget. I wasn't interested in spending $65+ on parking at another all their hidden fees. This place was reasonably priced and clean. The staff is friendly enough. I would recommend it to someone on a budget. Just remember it's a motor inn not a Hilton.
