This motel is a drive away from Cannery Row & Fisherman's Wharf. Room small but very clean with nice bedding& towels. Basin is in main room & not bathroom, not really a problem but not sure why! As some other reviewer pointed out, right next door is an adult theatre & book store which had loud music banging away right near our room. Would recommend you ask for a room away from main road and on same side as reception.
Breakfast was plentiful if not a great deal of choice.

Room Tip: Choose one away from main road and in same area as reception

I would have given it four stars if the man in the office hadn't decided to argue with me in regards on how I hung our maid service sign. We came back from a long day, only to find our room not cleaned. I called to the office and ask if we could have maid service and he said "no" then preceded to tell me that I must not have put my sign on right. I said ok maybe not but is there anything we can do? Still he countuined to argue, Really! Then I snapped and said can you just move forward and just bring us some clean towels. When he did he thoughtit was ok to glare at me. You may want to give your employes some traing on customer service!

The outside of this place is very outdated but they have redone the inside to be very modern. The rooms were very clean. The staff was very friendly. The property is well keep up with flowers all around The pool was very clean. It was very quiet. The rooms are small. The hair dryers are awful. Bring your own Didn't eat the breakfast buffet because it was too crowded. Many restaurant near by. For the price I would say we got a great deal.

Best it all its all on one level.breafast was good.bra linin was nice quality too. Highly recommend.
