Great location! Standard King room is small with a ton of wasted space in the bathroom. Don't show up before check-in if you have a car, they charge you $25 even if you're only 1-2 hours early.

"Walking distance is perfect for the Wharf and Pier"
Just what you need if you don't plan on staying in. Comfortable sleeping. Nice tv. Perfect access to stores, restaurants and sites. The parking fee included was appreciated!

"Close to The Wharf and the Action"
Excellent staff! The check-in person was so helpful in drawing routes to points of interest on the hotel provided map. They ensured our room, especially the bathroom, was very clean. Also, we were made to feel that we could call on them anytime for any needs. We were so happy to find a good hotel in a prime location even with parking in an expensive city like San Francisco that having such good service from staff was the icing on the cake!

"Old run down, not relaxing"
This hotel cost 300. Per night. Worth about 70.00. Old, run down,steps away from fisherman's warf which was great, but it wasn't relaxing because of the noise level of street performers until about 2 am. There is a 7-11 across the street, which is where homeless people and clearly people on drugs sit and yell down the street all night. The first clue was seeing ear plugs in the bathroom. Also, no breakfast,no air conditioning, so we had to open the door to the balcony so get some air flow, which was a problem because of the noise. The stay would be better if the owner put money into this place. Really disappointed.

I enjoyed my stay at the Wharf Inn, staff was very friendly and helpful and the Inn is well located. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The only downfall was the noise during the night, our room was a street view room.

"Great location but horrible noise problem"
This hotel was in an amazing location close to everything!! The hotel staff was great & very helpful. The room was clean but no a/c! During the day was unbearable to even come into the room. We had to leave the balcony door and window open to get air & to cool off the room & we didn’t feel comfortable doing this except when we were there bc someone could have gotten in our room. This would have been fine at night bc the temp outside was great but the loud noises coming from the homeless fighting, cussing & throwing things at each other across the street all night long & the loud music vibrating our room coming from a car in the hotel parking lot for 1 hour kept us from sleeping the 2 nights we stayed! Finally about 3 am came some peace until about 5:30 am when delivery trucks, garbage trucks & other outside noises woke us back up both nights. We loved San Francisco but will not ever stay at this hotel again bc we couldn’t get any sleep!!

"Decent hotel. Close to wharf."
This is an older hotel, so the elevator, bathrooms are very dated. They have decorated with new furniture so I had a big comfy King size bed and a large screen TV. There are only older showers in the bathroom, no bathtub. There are few amenities; no breakfast or coffee maker in the room, but there is coffee available in the lobby. I was on the back side so it was pretty quiet. I was up early in the morning and could hear the street sweeper. It would probably be a bit noisy on the front side facing the street. The neighborhood feels a bit seedy at night, so I wouldn't go walking around at night.

"Save money on parking, but sacrifice room quality."
If you do not want to spend any time in your room and have a perfect location at the wharf, then this is where to stay. The rooms are very small and old. The BEST feature is that you do not have to pay $50 per day to park like all the other hotels. There is no AC. Our heater vent was always hot, and the water temp fluctuated while in the shower. Nice, friendly staff.

"Great location!"
This hotel is close to everything we wanted to do. We parked the car, free parking at this hotel, and walked everywhere. Just a block away from the bay and all it has to offer. Lots of restaurants to choose from. A must tour in San Fran is the Big Red Bus tour, hop on hop off, and its first stop is right across the street! Alcatraz landing, where you pick up your shuttle out to the island is just about a 15 min. walk, beautiful. FYI, if you want to do Alcatraz, get your tickets on line at least a couple weeks ahead. No kidding, they sell out quick. One last note, just because it's California don't think it will be warm. We were there in June and I could have used a sweatshirt and a windbreaker!

"Clean & comfy beds, Free parking, Great spot!"
We had an early check-in and the gentleman at the front desk seemed a bit grumpy, but turned out to be fairly nice. The rooms were clean, the bed was seriously comfortable and we had no issues with water temperature. We also had a room near the back of the hotel away from traffic and there were no noise issues for us. Also the room had a smart TV which was very nice. The outside of the hotel is dated, but I really enjoyed our room and wish we could've stayed longer! For the price we paid AND free parking, it was great! A very short walk down to Fishermans wharf, so if most of your activities include that area, this spot is a gem. Also, the next day while checking out, the man at the front desk gave us permission to stay parked in the lot while we grabbed something to eat before leaving town! I recommend this spot and would stay here again.

"Pleasantly Surprised"
I was pleasantly surprised about the Wharf Inn. I spent 3 nights earlier in the week in a more expensive hotel in North Beach and though I really liked the hotel and neighborhood in North Beach I more than likely will stay at the Wharf Inn next trip. The Wharf Inn is a little bit old but it's clean and the staff was very nice and now that I know San Francisco more I think it's close enough to North Beach where I normally go when in San Francisco that I'll probably stay here. The cost was quite a bit less than the hotel I normally stay at and free parking was a big bonus here at the Wharf Inn as in North Beach as well as other parts of the city parking is around $30 a night... The neighborhood around the Wharf Inn is not my favorite area as it's become very touristy and a little sketchy but like I mentioned it's close to North Beach(maybe 5 blocks from North Beach) where I hang out...

"I left my heart in San Francisco"
We were very pleased with our stay at the Whaft Inn. I requested to have an early check in and the room was ready when I got there. The staff was very friendly. I was pleased with the service. I am glad I requested a room in the back of the building because the corner is very busy. The location of the hotel was very good and close to many restaurants. The hotel could use a new paint coat since it is an old hotel but the room was very comfortable.

"Very comfrtable hotel in the heart of the bay."
Very comfortable accomodations in the heart of Fisherman's Wharf. Staff were courteous & and friendly, rooms were good, and the free parking is a huge plus (which is great for travelers on a budget. The Holiday Inn which is 2 blocks away charges $50 to park your car per night, on top of what their room rate is). I will definately make the Wharf Inn my go-too hotel when I return to SF.

"Depends on what you care about most"
The Wharf Inn has a few benefits and a few issues as well. The Good News: Unbeatable location - easy walk to ANY tourist spot - Pier 39, Alcatraz Landing, Fishermans Wharf, Ghiradelli Square, Exploratorium, cable cars, etc. Free Parking - depending on length of stay, can save you hundreds... Nice staff, clean room and decent beds... The Bad News Dated interiors - definitely needs some fresh paint, new furniture and bath fixtures. Crazy water temp fluctuations - will drive you nuts although we did manage to find the "magic spot" on the knob that maintained a consistent temp. No A/C - not a big deal in April, but a consideration for a July/August stay. Overall, I guess it depends on what is most important to you. If location and saving some cash matters most, go for it! If your hotel needs to meet higher comfort standards and has to offer amenities, you may want look elsewhere... I'd recommend it for a 1-2 night stay, maybe for 3 nights.

The Wharf Inn is more of a motel than a hotel... basic, clean, safe. The location is near to every single thing and there's free parking if you need it.

This place has free (limited) parking - and they even allowed us to park after we checked out up until check-in time. While the place itself has seen some better days, the location and service can't be beat! They have very comfortable pillows, plenty of seating, and their balcony rooms give you just enough view of the bay to wet your appetite for sight seeing.
