“great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2009

The hotel is situated near China town, north beach and you can pretty much walk to the main sightseeing points. Not luxury but a very big bed! Quite thin walls so you can hear a lot of what's going on in the next room but apart from that I would recommend this hotel to the budget traveller.

We spent 2 nights at the Royal Pacific. We chose it mostly for it location and free parking. In a city where parking alone costs upwards of $25 a night, a hotel room with parking for around a $100 was a great deal. Don't chose the Royal Pacific if you're looking for luxury -- but perfect for the budget travel who wants some place to sleep & clean up at modest cost.

Close to the cable car line (just a few blocks walk) and Fisherman's Wharf. A short drive to the Golden Gate Bridge and most of SF's attractions. The neighborhood was a little overwhelming when we drove in the first night, but didn't feel unsafe as we walked around in search of a place to eat.

The Thai restaurant just a few doors down served a great dessert -- we wished we'd had dinner there because the food smelled soooo good.

OK, it's not the Ritz, but we stayed 3 nites and figure we had $300 extra in our pocket for meals etc. Very comfortable, basic rooms and a really convenient location.

I just returned from a 4-day stay at the Royal Pacific. It was an average visit. I was neither overwhelmed nor underwhelmed by anything in particular. It served it's purpose as a reasonably priced hotel in a convenient location. It's located right on the edges of Chinatown and Little Italy so you only need to walk a few blocks to find great food. We walked to Fisherman's Wharf one day and took the 30 bus down Stockton another. You were also within walking distance of a cable car stop. (General SF tip: the MUNI travel pass is a good deal if you expect to use public transportation frequently)

It did have free wi-fi, but you had to use it in the little lobby. But, I guess compared to paying extra at the big hotels that already charge you alot, that's not a big deal. They charge for ice and you can rent a refrigerator if you need one (so no doggie bags, folks). They did call for my airport shuttle and gave me a $2 discount, which was convenient. However, the room was dark. There was one small ceiling light and one bedside lamp with the heavy black-out drapes. There was a distinct chemically smell in the room which didn't dissipate. The lady at the desk said it may have been related to the the recent renovations, but she did make a note of it. And, my roommate was awakened by women outside the door at 3 AM yelling obscenities at a man. "Breakfast" consisted of 2 pre-wrapped pastries. It was clean, aside from the smell, and I felt relatively safe. As I said, it was an average stay.

I've been asking myself if I'd stay here again. Because of the price and location I might. However, if I hit the Mega Millions or found my sugar daddy I'd be laying my head somewhere else. Not a bad place for what it is, though.

We picked this hotel for the location and free parking. Employees at the front desk were very unfriendly. The loby is very very tiny and looks awful. Our check-in took about half an hour as one of the rooms we booked was cancelled somehow. They arranged another room for us and luckily the rooms were comfortable and clean. No breakfast facilities etc - just a basic motel.

Me and my husband stayed here and we were so suprised at how fast the service was. The room although not the one we reserved (we reserved a King bed room but it is not available yet when we arrived), we got a queen bed instead and the room is very big! We got there around 9am and they checked us in early! They have a separate laundry room where you can wash clothes privately. And also they have free wi-fi too. Great service! We will definitely come back!

It was our second stay in San Francisco and we stayed for two nights.
At checkin they give us a parking permit and a free upgrade for a better room at the backside of the building where is no trafficnoise.
The rooms are clean and at the next day we found two packed pastries in the room.
Chinatown, litle Italy, Fishermans Wharf and more are in walking distance.
If i come back to San Francisco i will stay there again because it's a good value.
