"The location near the wharf couldn't have been better. We loved the hotel decor and were able to store our luggage before check-in with no problem. The courtyard was inviting, with large fire pits and lounging areas. 2018-11-18"

"I had a non-eventful hotel stay on a busy Friday night. Great location near Fisherman's Wharf, but not too close to the crowds. The free breakfast was good, but it got busy early and stayed busy.2016-08-02"

"The hotel room was clean, and the staff was friendly. Our room faced the street, though, and it was noisy most of the night.2019-02-16"
"Not within walking distance of the Embarcadero or Ferry Building. The room was low-priced and now I know why. My room was clean, but it faced Broadway and I couldn't sleep because of all the traffic noise. No fridge in the room. The staff was friendly and helpful. Don't stay at this hotel.2017-08-04"
"Perfect location for walking to most attractions; the hotel was between Chinatown and North Beach, and an easy walk to the wharf for great seafood. Check-in was quick, and I was given the option of getting in a room early or waiting for a quieter room. I appreciated the clerk giving me that option.2015-10-21"
"Cool motel, but I had some issues with the electric kettle. The staff didn't do anything when a scary-looking man harrassed me in the lobby.2015-05-05"
"The motel was noisy and dark because of the wooden ceiling, but the room was clean and the staff was nice. Walk to everything. If you just need a place to sleep, this is a good place. I'd stay again.2017-10-18"
"The motel employees let us use their microwave since the breakfast area wasn't open in the evening.2016-06-22"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
