Charming motel in Marina District. Flowers and flowering plants everywhere (plus flowers painted on selected walls). SIngle garage parking (free). Many restaurants, delis, shops,etc. on nearby Chestnut Street.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in center block; it's quieter.

What can I say about this little place? It's simply adorable! Love the Spanish feel of the property and FREE parking! You know that's a rare thing in SF, so this plus the affordable price makes the motel truly charming. We stayed in a 2 double bed room which was perfect. Everything was clean and felt very comfy. Loved how the motel is also pet friendly too. The neighborhood was probably one of the nicest I've ever stayed in while in SF. Lots of great restaurants and shops all around too. Very close to the Pacific Palace of Fine Arts and Golden Gate Bridge. Awesome location and we will be staying here again!

Room Tip: Whatever you do, get a courtyard room...if you want to sleep. The street rooms face Lombard and it's super loud.

Stayed only one night regrettably.

Location. Okay, Lombard Street (101) is very busy. We were on the street side and had windows open. Slept soundly. Easy access from north. It's really at an edge of the city, not centrally located, but bus service is nearby.

Parking. We knew we wouldn't fit into garage, and we alerted staff ahead of time. The nice individual who checked us in had a spot for our van with box on top. It's tight in the courtyard, requiring us to pull our mirror into the car.

Staff. Gracious, helpful.

Unit. What a delight. Well equipped kitchen, good bathroom with just shower, good sleeping room. The decor is perfect for the vintage without appearing to try too hard. Bed okay. Very clean.

Ambience. How good does it get!! Lovely flowers, beautiful paint job. Like an oasis in the city.

Stayed here two nights and had a pleasurable experience. The property seems well maintianed and quaint. We stayed in room 19 which was towards the back of the property and away from busy Lombard St. The room was fairly small but did the job, clean with decent sized restroom and storage closet. I would call it cozy and comfortable, with flat screen tv and a small refrigerator too. Everything we needed, basically for a short stay. You get garage parking included which is a huge bonus in SF, but if you are driving a massive Tahoe or similar vehicle you are going to have issues. We never experienced any issues pulling out or into the property as some reviews have mentioned. Lombard is a busy street but just be patient and it will all work out.

Please note this is a "Historic" motel, so keep that in mind as far as luxury is concerned. No duel pane windows here.

The front desk was polite but not overly helpful. Marina area location was good. Walk to see the Palace of fine arts. Walk to the marina/beach for views of the Golden Gate etc. Lots of restaurants and shops close as well. Would definately stay again.

Room Tip: A room not facing Lombard would be your best bet to keep things quieter.

What is a quaint and charming looking motor motel turns out to be the "Hotel From Hell".
Forget that the hotels address is Lombard Street; it is on the US 101 Northbound access to the Golden State Bridge with non-stop heavy trucks and buses along with jump starting cars at the corner traffic light.

Do not think about having a "full" size car here. Inside garages are snug; requiring any passengers to exit before parking. Street garages require a spotter in the highway in order to align any vehicle trying to park or exit the street garages.

In spite of a noise disclaimer concerning street side rooms, the noise is beyond outrageous. The doors are paper thin and have NO weather stripping to mitigate the street noise. Also, vestibules magnify the street noise to the rooms.

On a positive side, the marina district location provides access to shops and restaurants within blocks of the site.
