Reviewed 7 January 2014

Right between Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39. Short walk to Ghiradelli square and nice restaurants. There is a Safeway and Trader Joe's a block away. With google maps it easy to get in and out of Fisherman's Wharf while avoiding the traffic. The rooms are fine and the area is noisy but the rooms in the back are very quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. Would stay there again.

Just what we were looking for, reasonably priced for the area, great location,clean, comfortable bed, adequate space and a helpful staff. A bit of street noise but easily "drowned out" by the bathroom fan for "white noise". We would use this inn again.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. A standard hotel, very basic but it is in the perfect location. Perfect place to stay and head off on foot or jump on the tour bus which stops accross the road. Would definately recommend this as a place to stay, a little noisy as the walls seemed thin but if you used to city noise etc it won't bother you.

If you're not looking for anything fancy, but want a clean place that is close to main attractions, I'd highly recommend the Wharf Inn. Not the classiest looking place, but you are right at Fisherman's Wharf, and walking distance to the F-line and other public transit. Our room was clean, no AC, but had good air circulation with windows open, and the pillows were decent. You can't beat the price for the area. We had a late flight leaving, and they kept our huge bags for the day, even though the place is tiny.

The only downside was that there was no fridge to put all our tasty seafood leftovers every night. Also, if you are not into touristy areas, don't stay near Fisherman's Wharf.

Why? Because this is where we can park our car in an enclosed space and go in and out. Parking in SF with a car is very very expensive!!
You can get to downtown via a cable car or take a double deck tour bus around. Everything on Fishermans Wharf or Pier 39 is within walking distance. Granted, it's not a five star hotel, but who cares when all you're going to do is sleep and change clothes!! It has always been clean and the staff friendly.
There is also an iHop in the next block for anyone interested in a reasonably priced breakfast.
Safeway (grocery chain) is within walking distance if you need to buy anything. We travel the world and go into the city for events. This last trip was for the America's Cup but before then it was to go see a show at Beach Blanket Babylon in North Beach!!

Room Tip: We like a room on the street so we can look out on the bay BUT you will absolutely hear street noise...

The hotel was near to public transportarion and just one block from Fisherman Wharf's restaurants and stores. The room was small but it was clean and had everything you needed. The staff was friendly and helpful. There was free newspaper and free tasty Colombian coffee, hot chocolate and tea available in the lobby all day long. The best of all is there was free parking, you can't beat that in San Francisco.
