My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Lombard Motor Inn as part of a business trip. This is a no frills hotel--you get a clean room with a flat screen tv, internet access and free parking (which we did not use). The price is very competitive with other budget hotels. That's the good.
The Bad from my point of view--The Hotel was recently renovated (Spring 2012) and as of July 2012 there was still significant outgassing from the new carpets and mattresses and a strong chemical smell apparent. I have allergies and I had many allergic symptoms in my room--red eyes, nasal and other congestion. My husband does not have allergies and did not experience these effects but other colleagues staying at the hotel reported nasal congestion without a cold.
Another caveat--The location is central and it is about six blocks from Fisherman's Wharf but you will encounter medium hills which could be a problem for those with disabilities.
There is no food available at the Lombard except for a bowl of fruit in the lobby. There is a cafe lombard across the street and there are two restaurants with breakfast and lunch at the corner of Van Ness and Chesnut.
The staff are very nice and some colleagues appreciated the free parking.
Personally I would not return to the hotel due to the outgassing and chemical smells. Hopefully these will resolve over time.
