Chelsea Inn, San Francisco
Close enough to walk to the wharf. Housekeeping entered room 2x without knocking on door. Complained to front desk staff. They just shrugged. So make sure you double lock your door. Parking garage is good. Room anemities none existent. Noticed several people did same thing as us - bring your own hot plate.

Great location !! The location is very nice, there is restaurants and things to do within walking distance. I also really liked that they have free parking !! Only thing is the key cards kept dying out. Otherwise it’s perfect. The room is also great, lots of space

Totally worth it
My experience was great. The parking is limited so I imagine during busy times you might not get a place to park but I had a space for the entire weekend. It has a great location. It’s a short walk to the waterfront and a nice walk to sites like Coit Tower, Filbert Stairs, Lombard Street’s famous zigzag hill. There are lots of good restaurants in every direction. The room was clean and comfy. The neighborhood is a little noisy but this didn’t bother me.

Very happy with Chelsea Inn
Everyone I encountered at the hotel was friendly & helpful. The free parking was a huge bonus & the spots in the basement weren't too narrow. It was very clean, plenty of room for the 3 of us. The only thing I would suggest is more pillows & fluffier ones. The ones on the bed were super thin & one one per guest. Also, if they added a microwave & mini fridge, this would be the most perfect hotel ever!
