“Location and Free Parking”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

We decided to rendesvous with friends for two days in SF and chose this motel for its location and parking. We were in room 304, front, with a balcony. Alas, it was foggy so we didn't have much of a view but we loved hearing the fog horns! The room was near the elevator and ice machine but we did not hear any noise from them. We did hear street noise as Lombard is very busy, but after all, we wanted to be in the city.

We had two big beds, a table with two chairs, flat screen TV, luggage rack, coffee maker, hair dryer, kleenex. The sink was separate from the toilet & tub/shower. There was a rubber no slip mat but no grab bars in the shower. There was no desk but that was not an issue for us.

There is a small place for coffee and pastries next door.

We thought the price was fine for June in San Francisco ($155 per night).

We had a good experience staying at this hotel. The hotel is older, but the room was very clean and spacious, The front desk was very helpful especially when we were checking in at midnight on a Saturday night. Garaged parking which was a definite bonus. It had everything you could possibly need in the room. It's also at a great location ... public transit to the Golden Gate Bridge is just down a couple of blocks. Fisherman's Pier was about a 15 minute walk from the hotel. Whenever back in San Francisco, we will stay there again.

We wanted to try a new area of SF. It was a great location to Marina area and restaurants. Free covered parking. The room was clean and spacious. We overlooked a garden area in the back of the hotel. They let us check in early too. Great place! Will definitely return...

We had a great experience here. The hotel is older, but the room was very clean, large for a city hotel. Liked staying in a small hotel. The front desk was very helpful - especially Edgar who gave us lots of very helpful advice. Will definitely stay here again

Room Tip: We read to request a back room and we did. Good decision - quiet.

A reasonable value hotel in a great location with free parking.

Stayed for 3 nights in May 2014. Originally we had a room on middle floor but requested a move as the occupants above were thundering around their room! This wasn't a problem as the staff were extremely polite and helpful. We moved to a room on the top floor which had a view of the Golden Gate Bridge :) There is some road noise in the rooms at the front but sleeping with earplugs took care of that!
Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable had a coffee maker, however a fridge would have been nice. Also, my taller companions had to beware of the low ceiling light fitting!

Ideal location; Fisherman's Wharf is within easy walking distance and trams close by. The sightseeing buses stop just a short walk away and there is also a cycle hire shop nearby.

Would stay here again and would recommend to others.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper, request a room at the back of the hotel.

Stayed for 3 nights in May 2014.. Had been looking for a good hotel at a decent price, as San Francisco hotel prices are generally expensive. The Lombard Motor Inn was an excellent choice! When I arrived, I was met with a friendly smile and a smooth check-in. I had requested a room at the rear of the property to avoid traffic noise, that is mentioned in many of the reviews. I was allocated Room 109, across the corridor from the elevator. My room was fantastic! The main room was spacious, and the bed was huge and comfortable. The bathroom was accessed through an area complete with its own mirror and wash hand basin.
The hotel location is about 4 blocks (uphill) to the famous 'Lombard Street' section. Fisherman's Wharf is around a 20 minute walk, but is not difficult, and there are lots of shops/restaurants and attractions once you are there. There are plenty of buses too, so getting around the city is fairly stress free.
My No.1 tip... On weekends and bank holidays there is a Municipal bus, No.76X that runs over the Golden Gate Bridge, and up into the Marin Headlands above the bridge, then back into San Francisco. They run every hour. For 2 Dollars it is a bargain, and your ticket is timed too, so you can use it up to a certain time which is brilliant, but at 2 Dollars for a 'Life Experience' who really cares!! You can catch it on the corner of Van Ness & Jackson, and they start running at 9.30am.. The views of the bridge are spectacular, and you can get off on the way back too, then catch the next bus.. simple!
The staff at the Lombard Motor Inn were excellent, and very helpful.. I will most definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting San Francisco in the future, and would certainly use it again myself!

Room Tip: If you want a quieter room, choose the rear of the hotel. You will be looking at a brick wall but th...

An excellent value for money hotel in 15 minutes' walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf. Clean spacious rooms and exceptionally helpful staff. Edgar and Irene will go the extra mile to make sure you have a good stay. Parking is free and there are several places to eat locally. However stay away from Bobo's opposite unless you want a big hole in your wallet. Not noisy despite location on main road. We had room at the back. Such good value we decided to re- book for when we fly home.

We used the Big Bus to tour the area. Don't get a 48 hour pass as it isn't suitable for commuting around the city. Tour guides are very good however.

Only problem with our room was that the TV repeatedly needed resetting to get a good picture

Room Tip: Room at the back not noisy though no view either.
