Nothing Fancy but Just Right
Super clean, comfortable and friendly staff. I also had a great view of the Golden Gate from my room as an added bonus! It's an easy walk to the Marina, Presidio, Golden Gate and plenty of restaurants, bars, coffee shops, etc.

Dissatisfied in Cow Hollow
This review is for the Cow Hollow Inn(a sister property) Very disappointed in the Cow Hollow. After my guest and I checked in and was walking to the elevator, the manager Andy ran behind us with a piece of paper and yelled, " I need you to write down her name." Upon asking him why, he could not provide a definitive reason per policy. He kept yelling, "well if something happens and the police comes they would want to know" and "if you lose a key." After informing him, that I've stayed at numerous hotels(including 5 star) and seveal of the sister properties(Chelsea and Coventry)was never asked to list the names of my guests, he yelled, "well I need it and if you don't give it, you can't stay here." When I asked to speak to the owner, he rudely stated, "the buck stops here." In fact, during this conversation, 2 guests approached the front desk and I never heard the associate ask for the 2nd guest name. In my opinion, the Cow Hollow has very unprofessional, rude staff/manangement and my guest and I were discriminated against and treated unethically and unfairly.

Older Property But Perfect For Our Stay
We loved the hotel! We have stayed at much newer and nicer places but the location and staff were fantastic. The rooms are a little dated but why spend your day in beautiful San Francisco stuck inside. We even got so lucky as to have an amazing view of Golden Gate bridge right out of our window. Beautiful! The most important feature was the FREE parking. Almost unheard of in the city. Also, the property is so convenient to everything. Highly recommend if you do not mind an older and dated property and room.

Clean & convenient
Everything was good except the location of the room backed up to an alley that was shared with the YSPost Office. Noisy until 4am.

This hotel is in a nice area very clean and comfortable bed. Great location walking distance to palace of fine art, bus route takes you to fisherman’s Wharf. Free parking is a big plus. Only one problem right across from loud bar and traffic all night long.

Lovely place. Bonus: We took advantage of the parking this hotel offered and used public transportation the whole time we were in San Francisco. Of the nine hotels we stayed at on our trip this was a close second!
