Reviewed 29 December 2013

Booked this hotel but was told that there was no availability when I checked in. We were offe to their sister hotel, Inn on Broadway. As I did a prepay and was afraid we had nowhere to go, I had to accept that. Our experience in their sister hotel was horrible, no internet at all.
I spent about 1 hour booking hotel every day and read a lot of reviews to make sure that my stay can be pleasant within my budget. This experience is very frustrating.

I stayed at Nob Hill Motor Inn in 2002, in my first trip to California and was a little concerned that after 11 years the hotel didn't keep the good quality it used to have. I was wrong. Nob Hill Motor Inn was a very good choice again! In a very good location in San Francisco, the hotel offers free parking - which is very difficult to find in a city as San Francisco. Although the rooms keep the same decoration and furniture of 11 years ago, they're very clean and spacious. Same for the bathrooms. They offer a complimentary breakfast right by the front desk. You have to take whatever you want to eat and take to your room (there was a table in the room for breakfast). Also, we needed to prepare our coffee in the room's coffee maker - which was OK. Breakfast is not a complete one, but the hotel is located next to an excellent deli, where you can either buy the stuff you want for your breakfast or take coffee and your selection of pastries to go. Wi-Fi was excellent. I totally recommend Nob Hill Motor Inn.

Stopped here for one night on our way to napa and were extremely pleased we did! Leenay on front desk when we checked in was incredibly friendly and so helpful, nothing seemed to hard or too much to ask. The guy that checked us out was just the same, didnt catch his name unfortunately, helping with directions etc.
The room was clean, warm, well appointed and quiet- everything you need from a motel room! Free parking and wifi was great also!
Its located close enough to fishermans wharf- 9 dollar taxi ride!- and just off a main road from the airport so easy to get to!
Overall a great motel in San Fran!

Room Tip: Grab a room up top and at the back! Super quiet!

There are many hotels and motels in San Francisco, that is a God-given fact, but which one is the best of the best? Every one has their own individual needs and wants when one checks into a hotel or motel. For me, the Nob Hill Motor Inn has everything that I or anyone else would ever want or need. First of all, if you are a visitor or San Francisco or a resident of San Francisco, you want to be in a location where you are safe, at Nob Hill Motor Inn, you are. I have stay at motels that were $200 a night, yet there were maybe 10 TV channels, and on an old-fashion TV. Not at Nob Hill, I have never actually counted how many TV channels there are, but I know that there has to be over 200 channels, and on a High definition TV, which makes the picture crystal clear. To have the convenience of having a frig and a microwave is too good to be true. There are some motels, that will charge extra to park your car, not at Nob Hill. It's hard to find the right motel, but it is always worth finding, and Nob Hill Motor Inn is the right one.

We had an overnight stay in SF on our trip to Mexico. I chose Nob Hill Motor Inn for several reasons... Suites to accommodate a family of six, great location to downtown, on bus route etc, free parking - it didn't disappoint!
The two ladies that we dealt with at the front desk (check-in, check-out and all the annoying tourist questions in between) were sweethearts and so very helpful.
Our suite was large and spacious - a bed in the living area, fridge, microwave, couch (sofa bed maybe), table and chairs, full bathroom and then two beds in the bedroom. Everything was clean.
My only complaint, or maybe suggestion, would be the morning coffee :) Maybe get a keurig coffee maker or something cuz instant coffee and lukewarm water doesn't quite jive! All in all - not a biggie!
Thanks for the great hospitality :)

This is the second time I stay at this hotel. It has been renovated since my last visit in 2007.

Pros: Great location. Withing walking distance to many sights and restaurants.
Reasonable prices during the weekdays.
Clean and tidy rooms. Well maintained.
Parking included.
Large flat screen TV.
Friendly staff.

Cons:
Can be a bit noisy, depending on the room location. Often hear conversations in the walkways and doors slamming.
I found that prices go up substantially on the weekends.

We booked one of their family suites for 6 people, not sure what to expect but pleasently surprised upon arrival. We couldnt check in until 2pm but the front desk were happy to look after our bags so we could being exploring San Francisco!
After seeing the room it was a nice size, first room had a double bed with a sofa bed and there was a seperate bedroom with 2 other doubles in it. The bathroom was large with a pretty big shower and both rooms had a flat screen TV in with cable.
The hotel had wifi and a lift up to the third (top) floor.

The front desk staff were extremely friendly and helpful and we knowledgeable about things to do and see in the city, they suggested a hop on-hop off tour as best way to see San Francisco.

The location is good and not far from Lombard street.

The rooms were clean and there was a coffee maker and a fridge in the room.

All in all completely perfect for 3 days in San Francisco, I would reccomend it and stay there again.

the room is perfect for familys or groups of friends, good for young people and old and extremely affordable.
