Buena Vista Motor Inn, San Francisco
Very Good8.0
Decent Hotel close to attractions.
Breakfast place is not big, so one has to take breakfast to their rooms. Check-in and checkout can take time, in the small location which is combined with breakfast, Parking is very conveniently in the hotel itself, which helps. Rest was good.

Great location - only 5 blocks from great restaurants on Steiner St. Pretty decent hotel breakfast however, very little dining area so had to carry tray full up to room. Wifi, parking & breakfast included.

Decent, clean, a little loud, but comfortable.
The furniture and carpets in the room are brand new, which helped a lot with the cleanliness of the place. Parking is free and onsite but a little sketchy for how tight the garage is when it’s full. If you’re a light sleeper, the place is not for you. You can hear every car/bus/truck/motorcycle/siren that goes by outside. Otherwise it’s a decent place to stay on a budget. Clean, comfortable, standard king room was a great size.

Would stay again
Great location, decent breakfast (small room, but they provide trays to take your food back to your room if it’s too crowded). My favorite part was that the hotel is a stop on the Big Bus tour - so convenient!!
