Really great motel!
The front office lady was super friendly and helpful. Small front office space so you might bump into a lot of other people also checking in or out. Parking is tricky. You may have to double or triple park in the garage and leave your keys at the front in case they need to get it out to get the person(s) behind you out. But it’s FREE to park there! They also sell the passes to the Big Bus to tour San Francisco. Buena Vista Motel is one of the stops and the first pick up is at 9:10 which is convenient if you’re doing that. Also really cool is that the Motel is a short 15 min walk to Fisherman’s Wharf. We did this walk a few times with kids and it wasn’t bad. There are coffee shops and breakfast places close by if you don’t want to do the hotel breakfast which is just bagels, fruit, cereal, yogurt, danishes and juice/coffee. The room we were in was very small just a king and pullout couch. The kids slept on the pull out couch but they didn’t mind, slept pretty good actually. Check out was super easy. We’d stay here again for sure!

Flea bag hotel. Stay at motel 6.
Rundown, derelict conditions. Parking cramped. Very disappointed after using my free night. Bathroom not cleaned well. Furniture chipped and rickety. Way overpriced for any stay. Would not recommend. Will not return.

Not recommended
Rude front desk person. They advertise free parking but they stack the cars together then move them however they please. Room was smelly. Breakfast poor.
