When visiting San Francisco recently we were looking for a reasonable place to stay. We wanted something somewhat close to the attractions, and parking. A friend recommended this hotel. In any big city you go to, the hotel rates are very pricey, San Francisco included. And most of the hotels include an additional parking fee. The fees can range from $15 a night to $50 just to park your car. Chelsea Motor Inn was one of the few hotels I found with reasonable nightly rates and "free" parking. We rented a car to go to wine country but we wanted to be able walk to some of the attractions. We had no problem walking to Union Square (3 blocks) and Fisherman's Wharf (1.6 miles). The savings on the "no parking fees" was worth the stay here. The hotel is humble, garage is under the hotel. The rooms could use a little updating but they were clean and roomy and had a view of the Golden Gate bridge in the distance. Lombard Street is busy with traffic but it felt like a safe area over all. The staff was very pleasant and helpful with directions to restaurants in the area.
