Good location but nisy

The hotel is in walking distance of both the Golden gate park and Fishermans Wharf. The room was OK and it had a nice refurbished bathroom but it could do with double glazing as there is considerable traffic noise from the road.

Although I know on holiday's people tend not to stay in the room a lot, however, if you do plan to have any sleep at all, I would not stay here. This is most definately the noisiest motel I have ever stayed in. The room also stunk and the staff clearly were aware of this as the window had been left open when we arrived. Breakfast is virtually non-existant. Continental breakfast in my opinion is not chocolate doughnuts... I found the staff to be rude and parking is badly managed. On a plus side though, the motel is close to all main attractions. I am not always so negative and have never given feedback before, but felt on this occasion I had too on this particular motel. All in all our trip to America was very enjoyable.

Terrible stay

The room was smelly and the humidity in there was so high that all of out clothes went damp. After the first night I started to have breathing problems in the room so we tried to spend as little time as possible in there. Not recommendable.

Gute Übernachtungsmöglichkeit

Das Hotel liegt in der Lombard Street. Die Ausstattung typisch und für die Übernachtung gut geeignet. Es war sauber und für unsere Ansprüche sehr gut geeignet. Besonders zu erwähnen ist der kostenlose! Parkplatz ! Das Frühstück ist eher mau. Das haben wir schon besser erlebt.

Ihan hyvä hintaansa nähden

Henkilökunta oli ihan ystävällistä. Sain neuvoja miten päästä kohteisiin jne. Aamiainen oli lähinnä jotain pullaa. Huone ihan siisti. Autojen meteli kuuluu toki jonkin verran sisälle, samoin muiden huoneiden äänet. Sijainti on hyvä, tästä kävelee Pier 39:lle tarvittaessa ja läheltä menee sekä Big Buss, että Muni bussit. Lisäksi näillä oli lentokenttä pikkubussipalvelu ostettavissa, hintaan 18$.

Hyvä ostos

Hotelli oli erittäin siisti ja huone viihtyisä. Huoneessa ollut jääkaappi ja mikro lisäsivät mukavuutta. Sijainti kätevä yleisillä kulkuneuvoilla liikkumista ajatellen. Ostimme 3 päivän City Passin, jolla saimme liikkua kaikilla kulkuvälineillä mielin määrin. Tuli paljon edullisemmaksi kuin oman auton päivittäiset parkkimaksut keskustassa, puhumattakaan parkkipaikkojen etsimiseen kuluvasta ajasta. Suosittelen hotelli lämpimästi omatoimisille matkailijoille.
