Just okay

We were put in the building across the street, which wasn't nearly as nice as the main building. The hotel was clean enough, but needed updating. There was a Denny's in our building, which was handy and it served good food.

The hotels will tell you to take a cab or trolly, but things on the wharf are all pretty much all within walking distance. We did all of our walking during day light hours.

fun on ;the wharf

We always come back to the Holiday inn on the Wharf when we travel to San Fransisco. We are familiar with it, it is an easy walk to the Wharf, and we can count on a clean and comfortable room.
