Highly recommend! Very good place. A Diner called Mel's Drive In is open until late and very close to the hotel. Other then that, great restaurants near by!
Rooms are big and bed is very comfortable. Service is excellent! Every employee will make the best to assist you in whatever you need. My room was very silent.

Free Parking.

Price is ok but room is old- all wood furniture in need of new varnish, walls are completely bare of picutres, beds are comfortable, no flat screen tvs or hbo, no microwaves, $5 extra a day for refrigerator that is pint size with no freezer. Was on list of motels to get picked up at for tour companies and bus service is right here. Home Plate restaurant is 1 block away for great breakfasts.

Room Tip: We were senior travelers

We enjoyed a great stay here at the Chelsea Motor Inn, its on Lombard Street, great location for commuting into the heart of San Francisco, as its in a nice district.
15/20 min walk from Frishermans Wharf, 5 min drive.
Rooms were clean tidy and big.
Free Parking, Free WIFI, sadly no breakfast facilities and none particularly near by.

Room Tip: Rear rooms are a must, front are noisy.

When booking our stay we found the price to be great compared to other hotels in the area. They do charge a $50 booking fee which offsets the free parking. Why not just put that as your rate? We are not very picky and we know what to expect in SF. The room was clean and a little noisy as we were on the Lombard side. I can sleep just about anywhere so the noise did not bother me. Several nightclubs are around so late at night you can hear people around. The parking is great and plentiful. We felt it was safe to park our vehicle here. Overall the hotel is great for a weekend stay. We decided to pay cash upon leaving and the front desk clerk became irritated and was a jerk. So do not expect friendly service if you do anything out of the norm.

Room Tip: Noisy on Lombard side.

Lets face it,San Francisco is an expensive city.My girlfriend found this place and we were really surprised by the price.Yes,some things in the hotel are older but for the price and location you can't beat it. Its walking distance to some awesome restaurants and bars. Theres also a Bus stop thats close by. Secret tip-If your on the 2nd floor and your changing your clothes make sure you keep the curtains closed when the double decker buses drive by! :)
