“Great place and very convenient location ”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

We have just completed out holiday and spent the last few days at this hotel. We found the staff very friendly and the rooms very clean and comfortable. We were on the 3rd floor and did find the traffic noise slightly annoying but nothing that would prevent me from staying there again. Very close to Fisherman's Wharf and plenty of transport options to see the rest of the city. The only complaint would be the cost of parking. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to other people wanting a clean, friendly hotel near the wharf.

The fishermans wharf hotel was an ideal location being close to the bay, wharf and trollies.
We we're put in the block over the road and it wasn't an issue and was clean and quiet.
We tried the hotel bar but we had to track down the bar man as he had his nose in his iPhone, hidden away - poor service in a busy bar as we felt we had put him out.
Things nobody told me about the hotel and area
1. The other block is ok
2. It is California's but it's COLD take jumpers and coats
3. Denny's 24/7 is ok but go 1 block and try joanies happy days diner
4. All the local bars are great - when did America discover beer - and the bar staff were Irish, English or Italian - great
5.beggars - come on San Francisco if you wash the streets then you can deal with these poor souls - ex servicemen with begging dogs
Can't wait to go back and we will stay at the holiday inn

The staff are a definite bonus at this hotel. Very friendly and more than willing to go the extra mile to give advice. Rooms were ok, beds were a little soft. Hotel is very central to many of the attractions at Fisherman's Wharf. Parking was easy but costly.

When we reserved rooms at this hotel, there was no mention of the second Building (the Wharf Building) that was a part of this hotel. After we parked at the Columbus street main building, and checked in, we were told we had to carry our luggage about a block and a half to another building. The other building was OK, but if the hotel was going to send us to another location, luggage service certainly should have been offered and complimentary. The rooms were average, and definitely overpriced. The hotel restaurant in the Wharf Building is a Denny's.

Room Tip: Make sure to get as room in the Columbus Street Building, not the Wharf Building.

Hello, Thank you so much for staying with us as well as posting your thoughts on your stay. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry you did not find the Wharf building to your liking as it is the newer building and the rooms are a bit larger. Again thank you for staying as well as posting your thoughts

We stayed here during our vacation to celebrate my birthday. The hotel is in the perfect location. We were able to walk anywhere around the wharf and both the trolley car and street car stops were nearby if we needed to go further than the wharf. Our room was very clean, the bedding comfortable, the staff super friendely and the self laundry facilities were convenient.

VERY BEAUTIFUL view of Alcatraz from our 5th floor room.
Great location
Close to all amenities Fisherman's Wharf has to offer. Bus stop tours, gift shops, restaurants, Pier 39, etc.
Now, to the not so good stuff!
Our room was located on the 5th floor right over the main street. Our first sleepless night was due to cars drag racing up and down the street for about 30 minutes! Our second sleepness d=night was due to Police & Fire Dept called to break up a bar fight! All of this noise could be minimized by installing dual-pane windows. And last but not least, a VERY pricey place to stay. $45 a night for parking, $15 to rent a movie, and $20 for a buffet breakfast! To top it off, the Holiday Day Inn Express (which is 1 block away)0 serves their buffet breakfast for free!

Room Tip: Ask for a room off the main street, or that has dual-pane windows.
