We were very pleasantly surprised by this motel. It was a little oasis just off busy Lombard Street. Our room wasn't that big but for the price and location this was to be expected. It was very comfortable and we found it a great place to be based for getting into the city. Chestnut Street is just around the corner and has a nice selection of the shops, bars and restaurants. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall we would recommend staying here - especially if you have a car with you and don't want to pay for expensive parking.
