Situated four blocks off Market Street, which is the main street that runs through San Francisco. Everything is within walking distance, if you are fairly fit. The reception is a small area, but has everything it needs. Check-in was smooth.The staff were informative and came up with suggestions of places to visit. With car parking on the ground floor, with 30 rooms spread over two floors above it, which are accessed by an electronic gate using you room key. We did not see a lift/elevator. The room was average size,en-suite seemed standard as did, towels and hairdryer in addition there was a fridge and coffee machine and all the makings. It was a little short on natural light, but that suited us. Some areas were dusty, but on the whole the room was clean. Free wifi in the room.

Its definitely not the Hilton but its a cheap affordable place to stay in San Francisco that has the bonus of free parking. It is very dated and the rooms are in definite need of a spruce up but it does for a brief stay in the city. There is a free breakfast which is served on a 2ft bench in reception, mostly this consists of individually wrapped Danish pastries etc and there is juice cartons in the fridge but there are cheap places to go to breakfast nearby and I would advise going to these

Stayed here because we had a family emergency in SF. Do not expect anything good. Bed felt old, room looked old, bathroom alright. It did the job but would not stay again. Spend the extra money and get something better!

the location of this place could not be better! is in the center of everything but also easy access when you need to get out of onto main highways. I liked the people they treated me very nice, and the price is great since is so close to everything. It has parking which was great and everything that i needed.

This was my second stay in San Francisco Inn. I again chose it based on the location and price. It is a basic motel with few frills. The pluses are the small fridge and the wifi. The wifi was fine an improvement on my first stay. Everything has the feeling of being old and outdated but it is clean. The old CRT TVs were still there with a bit of 'snow' on the screen. The basic breakfast of cereals, pastries and fruit juice is still available to take back to your room. Staff are generally helpful. My only complaint would be with cleaning. I would often come back to my room late in the afternoon to find they hadn't finished servicing it and they would come back and finish it later. I don't know why they couldn't service it all in one go.

Went for a concert @ ATT park. Short walk to the park and back. Ice machine was not working, check in time was inconvenient, and the homeless were loud at night, most being right below our window. Just a basic place to sleep.

The people at the front desk are really nice and the room was clean. Parking can be a challenge and one night I had to park on the street. There is no elevator, so you'll have to lug your bags up and down a couple of flights of stairs. My biggest problem was not with the hotel, but the construction on the building next to it. I needed to sleep during the day and the noise made it difficult. The hotel is a good value for the money.

Arriving at a reception room 2.5 by 4 meters was chocking specially when we asked about the breakfast and told it was in the same place !!! But at the end it was a good stay as we only slept their after enjoying every day of our stay in San Francisco . In short words : free parking , narrow stairs , no lift , clean room : microwave, iron , coffee machine +coffee &sugar ,small fridge , TV, AC, telephone , no safe in room , good shower , I do not like the sink outside the bathroom. The ladies at the reception were friendly and helpful

The Inn is safe, provided free parking and a place to flop for the night that was walking distance to most all points downtown without spending an arm and a leg. Don't expect Four Seasons and you won't be disappointed. Breakfast consists of vending machine type pastries and yogurt cups. There is a Starbucks just a few blocks away for a real cup of coffee.

The rooms are pretty basic & there's no safe which is a big issue for people traveling. The breakfast served at reception to take back to your room was pretty basic but ok. The parking is tight in a big car but secure. This a side it's a great base to see the city, about 30 min walk from the centre, good price in an expensive city, would use again
