Reviewed 23 September 2013

Like the other reviews state, it's not a bad place for the price. S.F. is very expensive, so the price at the R.P. Motor Inn is bad. Free parking and internet were a key for us in deciding to stay here. It's right on the edge of China Town and is walkable to anywhere. Plus it does NOT have bedbugs. Decent place, even if the rooms are on the small side. We requested a room on the back side, and it was quiet.

A simple, hotel for a good price. Don't expect too much, but the location is perfect, everything is in walking distance. They offer free wifi and free parking which is very rare in San Francisco! The staff is very helpful, they gave us a map and explained how to find what we were about to see.

If you are looking for a super smart fancy hotel, this is not it!
If, however, you are looking for somewhere safe to stay where you can walk or catch a bus home at night, to a room which is clean with friendly staff then this is great!
The rooms are not that spacious but two double beds fitted in fine with room to walk around. The bathroom was clean with a good shower but the largest towel provided is what we English people call a bath towel rather than a bath sheet.
We requested and received a room at the back on the top floor following other feedback on here and had no problems with noise.
The staff were really helpful and friendly, the laundry provided was useful as we are on an extended trip to the states and if you have a car there is plenty of parking either directly outside or in a basement garage.
The property is really convenient to all tourist attractions. In one direction we walked to Fishermans Walk, Pier 39, the Coit Tower and Pier 33 for our trip to Alcatraz, all of which took us no more than 20 minutes. In the opposite direction we walked to Union Square which was about 10-15 mins walk depending on your speed and how busy China Town is.
A couple of tips: the number 30 and 8x buses run at the top of the road to the left of the hotel on Stockton Street if you are too tired to walk. There is also a Walgreens Supermarket on this road, less than 5 mins walk away if you need food of any description.
The room has a coffee maker but no facility for making tea and no fridge which was a major drawback
Really good value for money in a city which is traditionally expensive for accommodation

It is conveniently located in San Francisco’s Chinatown. There is no free breakfast but you can walk to any of the cafes for Chinese delicacies (congee, noodles, steam pork buns, wonton soup, etc.) which open at 7am or a few blocks away to any of the North Beach cafes. The hotel offers free parking on the first floor level and also there are spaces in the underground parking lot (where you have to give the attendant your car keys) when there is a first floor level overflow. We pretty much would check in and walk or bike around the City so that we would have our parking space. The hotel rooms have been updated, however, the outside stairs are in need of repair (cracks). Rooms are clean.

Room Tip: Room facing the inside are quieter.

The Motor Inn is located in the heart of San Fran - this made it so easy to get around and discover the city. It is quite close to Little Italy and also near Chinatown. Free Wi-Fi and Free Parking are great assets to this property.

The room was average and not big. The air con was soooo loud! And because it was so loud and the windows don't open, we actually had to leave the room open at night (with the chain lock) to allow some circulation. Beds were ordinary with very flat pillows. The bathroom was small, but sufficient.

Staff were very helpful all of the time.

All in all...I would probably stay here again because the value was quite good for a big city like San Fran.

Room Tip: Room on a higher floor to avoid too much noise.

We had booked three nights at this motel. It's located in the heart of San Francisco. The motel is very nice. Room was big and clean. One queen bed and a good and clean bathroom and toilet. Free wi-fi. Free parking in a garage and that is a great benefit in a town like SF.
Some noise in the early morning from trucks loading and unloading stuff at the nearby Chinatown.
The location is excellent! 1 min. walk to Chinatown, 5 min. walk to Little Italy. Perfect!
No pool, no breakfast but a helpfull crew at the reception.

We approached the hotel from the 'seedier' end of China town and with two teenage girls I was initially a bit sceptical - however the hotel is further up on Broadway and on the edge of Little Italy. Great location for walking to Pier 39. Cable cars etc. Accommodation was adequate, clean and fresh towels daily. Minimal wardrobe space for 4 of us, we were only there 3 nights so clothes stayed in suitcases. Laundry facilities available. Free wifi too.
