Rooms are noisy since they face traffic and back rooms near a bar. Clean and upgraded and close to main shops and food services. Close to attractions in city.

We were really happy with the Chelsea Inn. Rooms were comfortable with free wi-fi. We would have enjoyed a microwave in the room but the staff was very willing to let us use the microwave they have in the laundry room to heat up our crepes from Pier 39. Liked the free parking and the proximity to the "Big Bus" tour stop right outside the hotel and access to local places to eat withing walking distance. A Queen bed option would have been nice, but I booked late close to Thanksgiving so...

The Inn was old and many of the features (such as the bathroom floors) we old and stained and gave you the feeling the owner did not care about the customers as much as the income. I would choose another facility next time.

Front desk personnel were great! Gave tips and info about what to do in San Francisco. Walking distance to many places. Just bring flat walking shoes. Rooms were perfectly clean. Beds were comfy. View out the window was average, because we were on the backside, but that didnt matter. We loved our stay. It met my expectations!
