Nob Hill Motor Inn, San Francisco
It works fine, but do your research first.
If you need a place to sleep and are not too picky about a few details, this hotel works just fine. However, realize the breakfast buffet really means a few donuts and coffee on a small table by the check in desk. The parking is free, but if you drive anything larger than a 4 door sedan, forget getting into a space. Large truck owners need not apply. The walls are quite thin, so bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. Our sink leaked quite badly, flooding the counter top and therefore the floor, but otherwise things were fine. And, despite the name, the hotel is not really on Nob Hill, but one block from Van Ness. Overall, it worked, fine, but make sure it's what you need.

Very nice and helpful front desk staff on both the day and overnight shifts. Very clean room. Parking is a little cramped but is free. Breakfast is basic muffins and croissants but decent and single serve coffee machine features reg and decaf Starbucks beans!

Location is very accessible to points of interest. Free parking, free wi-fi, and morning coffee/pastries make this a great bargain.

Great area. Needs remodel
Loud loud loud. A little dingy Polk street great but For the first time they gave me a room on the road and it was super loud with the bright lights of the hotel shining through my window. Barely any water pressure in the shower ians j ust a little dingy. Employees and they checked me in early and I like the free parking but I definitely think it needs some work and asked him I would definitely request a more quiet room
