"We had to wait 20 minutes for someone to show up at the motel and check us in; when I tried to call the property, the call went to voice mail. The check-in clerk did upgrade us to a room with a whirlpool tub, but it was slippery and there were no grab bars. The room was clean and nice enough, but there were no blankets or bedspread on the bed. Thankfully, the heater worked. The fridge was noisy, and there was some street noise. Parking was free.2017-12-01"

"A nice, simple, clean hotel in a good neighborhood. Nothing especially praise-worthy, but a cut above most budget places. The employees were helpful and friendly.2016-03-20"
"The motel room was quiet, but it was extremely small and dirty in areas. It smelled like stale smoke. The fridge, microwave, bathtub, toilet, and sink were clean, but the walls were dirty and desperately needed fresh paint. Limited TV channels, and the picture was blurry. I asked for help with the TV, but no one ever came. The front desk clerk was nice and friendly. We were grateful for the off-street parking. We won't stay here again and don't recommend it.2018-09-06"

"The motel was in a good location if you want to spend time at the beach or the VA hospital. Good rates. The room was OK, but the stairwell smelled like urine and was dirty. The bathroom fixtures were clean but worn, and the unfinished wood around the window looked hastily installed. The door was dirty, and there was a hole in the curtain. We did have a small fridge and microwave. There was a lot of beach traffic. Friendly staff, but there were no real amenities. The premises were shoddy, and I didn't really feel safe after dark.2020-06-20"

"Great beach access. The room was large, clean, and affordable for the area. The motel clerks were personable.2017-10-27"
"Affordable and close to the courthouse. The motel and employees were great, but the surrounding area wasn't. A perfect place for a quick stay or if you're planning on staying in the room a lot.2022-01-27"
"The room was clean. The staff was nice enough to upgrade me to a room with a double bed. I didn't sleep well due to industrial or construction noise. Very little parking at the hotel; I had to park at a meter.2016-01-25"
"Just a few blocks from City Hall, the opera house, lots of coffee shops and restaurants, and bus routes. We walked everywhere. This hotel was just right for the price. The room was spacious and clean, but dated. Had a fridge, microwave, sofa, table and chairs, and a nice, big TV. No clock in the room. The beds were comfortable. Nice helpful clerks at the front desk. Parking was free and in a garage.2015-04-14"
San Francisco is on the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula. It is roughly 12 miles across the San Francico Bay from Oakland and 55 miles northwest of San Jose. San Francisco has a wide range of accommodations from motels to luxury hotels and condominiums.
Many of the hotels are concentrated near the San Francisco Airport, Golden Gate Park and downtown. The downtown San Francico hotels are near Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, Union Square and other attractions. Some hotels even offer free parking.
San Francisco is packed with attractions. The Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, Ghirardelli Square, Alcatraz, and the many "painted lady" Victorian homes are popular with visitors. San Francisco's neighborhoods are also well-known, with each having its own unique character.
After a hectic morning of sightseeing, visitors can take a break at Golden Gate Park or the beach, or see some of the jewels of the city's residential architecture at Alamo Square.
It's a walkable city, and the famous cable cars and efficient buses help locals and visitors alike get around the city. If you're a foodie, be sure to visit the Embarcadero's Ferry Building, a gourmet marketplace.
San Francisco boasts major-league sports teams like the 49ers and the Giants. A baseball game at Oracle Park is a treat for any sports fan.
The city is also home to important performance art institutions, museums, and venues like The Filmore.
In its many lives, San Francisco has been a Gold Rush boom town, a counter-culture haven, and a high-tech beacon. The waves of various dreamers have all left their mark to create a city like no other.
I found the hotel descriptions at HotelGuides honest, whether they recommended a hotel or did not.

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.
