Location great friendly service -Hotel lacked much
So service was good location was great but that was it for the positive. First of all the hallway on the floor we stayed REEKED of marijuana which actually seeped into the front closet of our room. Found hairs in bathroom. Room We stayed in facing the street was very loud including the trash truck that woke us up every morning at 5am. Finally, the hotel needs a major remodeling & modern updating from upgrading on windows (needs double pane) to room decor including comfortable mattresses to the hotel lobby. It all was very old and frankly depressing. Won’t be back even though room rate was decent. They should update the hotel n raise the rates.

No frills hotel that delivers clean, comfy stay.
We were looking for a clean bed and hot shower during our SF trip. Cow Hollow provided. The free covered parking and value were a plus. I would stay there again.

Good Place - They Do things Their Way
This is one of the better San Francisco, Marina area motels to stay in. Our criteria is price, cleanliness, service-included amenities and location. This small chain has been around for a long time and have an established way of doing things. While it's a good place, they don't deviate from the way THEY do things. As long as you know that, you are fine. One ding we had last time is that we reported TV issues; they did not fix them during our stay. Other than that, smooth sailing. We have been visiting SF and have stayed mostly at the Cow Hollow for over 30 years.

Clean hotel - terrible motion sensor lights
Hotel is clean and beds are comfortable. The area felt very safe and is in walking distance from the water and from really neat bars and restaurants. Free parking was a perk. There is a lot of road noise from Lombard street, but that didn’t bother us. By far the most aggravating thing was a motion sensor light in the bathroom. It literally would shut off after less than 30 seconds leaving you in the dark. From the toilet, you can wave your arms and the light come back on....but in the shower there’s no way for it to pick up your motion and you’re literally stranded in the dark. My husband literally had to sit in the bathroom and keep moving so I could shower with light. Completely ridiculous and aggravating. For this reason, I would not recommend this hotel or stay here. Caused a lot of unnecessary irritation.
