The room was clean, good view (we could see the Golden Gate Bridge from our 6th floor room). The staff was very friendly. Parking garage spaces were tight but adequate and a good value at $26 per overnight parking. If you are a light sleeper, this place probably won't work for you. It was very noisy, outside and inside. We could hear traffic, sirens, and even people talking outside on the street at all hours. Two homeless people on the sidewalk had a loud argument at 5 a.m. regarding a space they wanted to claim for the day to solicit donations and we could hear them quite well. In the room next to us we could overhear their conversations even though they weren't talking loudly. The walls must be rather thin!
Comfortable stay. Lovely staff. Enjoyable full, free breakfast. No black out curtains in the room.
Location close to most everything
It is a very clean and bright hotel, nicely decorated for Christmas. Sound proof walls. Cozy room. Good free breakfast. One of the cheapest decent 3 star hotels in SF. Free WiFi. The parking garage experience was AWFUL. very narrow and low ceilings, with many poles in the way that made it very hard to maneuver. I drove a friend's Ford Explorer which ended up getting multiple dents and scratches from hitting the poles to avoid hitting other cars. If you have a van or truck, DO NOT sTAY HERE. The extra money I saved by staying here ended up costing $500+ in damage repairs. Also, the night staff at the hotel was rude and unhelpful.
Comfort Inn By the Bay was close enough to the things that we were looking for that we were able to walk from place to place for much of our trip. The staff was very friendly and the hotel felt safe and cozy. Even after we checked out, there was a place for us to safely leave our luggage until we actually left the city.
Got last minute on our way into city when everywhere else was booked. GREAT PRICE. Can't beat the location - within 10 minutes walking to Pier 39 and other great sights. Cannot beat the value Rooms were somewhat smaller - didn't mind because we only slept and showered there.
Staff very helpful, well connected, good location. Small size room (looked bigger in the picture)
Excellent service. Room was crowded by furniture. Tight space. Otherwise excellent.
Location was central to SF Do you want shoddy construction or cold showers? Look no further. Very old musty smell almost everywhere. The places that weren't, actually smelled like a used diaper- no exaggeration. The lid to the toilet tank was not even the same size as the toilet bowl leaving it to be half balanced and look incredibly sloppy. Have you ever heard the expression, "you can't fit a square peg in a round hole?" The builders of this place sure hadn't. The toilet seat was also a good deal longer than the actual toilet leaving a massive overhang. Floppy dong- say hi to the yellow brown tiles! The grout and sealant of the seams of the bath fitters-esque renovation of the shower was grotesquely unprofessional. There were visible nail heads protruding from the white substance. But wait- there's more! The shower never even reached a warm temperature. All three nights we stayed here the water never became warm.. It was not user error.. The sinks or any water source never became more than barely room temperature. There was one morning it seemed a bit warmer, but it could have been hallucinations from diaper fumes. Tanks tapped out at 7-8 AM and still again at 9-10 at night?... fantastic. Three days of cold, prison style showers... It was actually festive since we planned on going to Alcatraz while we visited the bay area. There was a black smoke like stain above the headboard of the creeky bed as well. No doubt some poor soul who occupied the room prior couldn't take another ice shower, the diaper smell, or the nails in the bathroom grout and left gun residue on the wall when he made his final check out to life. Oh! I almost forgot! There were also those black clamp style office clips on the blinds to the front window facing the streets. These were to keep the blinds shut because obviously the ability for the shades to remain shut on their own is a luxury granted to only those willing to pay more than $150 a night for motel, diaper smell, prison showering amenities. San Francisco is a great city though.
Free parking and convenient location were real pluses
Free parking in the middle of San Francisco!!! Great location!!! Clean and comfortable rooms. Very helpful, courteous staff. There isn't much for breakfast, but so what, you are in SF, just go out and enjoy yourselves.
The staff was friendly. No air conditioning was a bit rough on a hot day but it cooled off enough by evening to not be an issue.
I like the fact that it was located in a great part of town - close to many attractions and very quiet. Plus, right up the street there are plenty of bars that one could choose from (if looking for such things). The staff was extremely helpful, polite, and accommodating. The room was small but we were not looking for a place to lounge as we came to the city to be in it, not to be in the room. Did not like the dirty shower floor, but mostly due to appearance.
Location Very dated tile in bathroom...carpeting very questionable.
Location, free parking, kitchenett, good continental breakfast,bus stop on corner, good restaurant's and grocery store in walking distance. kithchenette could have a toaster and more pots/pans/utensils
Parking is very expensive in San Francisco and parking is included in this motel! Rooms a very small but enough.
Staff always very helpful and accomodating. Convenient to public transportation (4 bus lines on the corner), always clean and comfortable.
Great staff, very friendly and helpful. You can walk from the hotel to important touristic places.
Great location with parking. Friendly staff. Clean.
value if you just want to put your head down at night, room could be updated , looks kinda old fashioned, but it was suitable for what i needed it for. room could be updated , looks kinda old fashioned, but it was suitable for what i needed it for. walls a little thin, could hear showers from the next room right by the headboards, lots of noise coming from the room above us,
The staff was frinedly and helpful There were no in room movies and now swimming pool. The continental breakfast could have been expanded with fruit.
it`s proximity to the fishermans wharf area and easy access to Van Ness/101 freeway. rooms facing Lombard st. are prone to street noise during peak traffic hours.
The staff were really helpful. They let us checkin early and didn't charge us. They were good value for money. However the room was basic and did the job. You would have to eat out as the are no kitchen facilities.
front desk was very helpful when we couldn't figure out where to park in the garage extra charge for parking. At the rate of the room parking should have been included
The Travel Lodge was a clean and convenient facility. The staff was wonderful!! None
It was what we expected, car park is extra which was not clear from the booking info?
Location is very good, close to Fisherman's Wharf and easy access to Cable Car and Streetcar. Neighboring street, Polk Street, has a wide variety of nice restaurants. Good value for the money in central San Francisco. Sound insulation relatively light.
The service No complaints
The location. It was near everything we wanted to do Didn't have the amenities we asked for (I.e. fridge/microwave)
Location: the motel is within 20 min walk to Fisherman's Wharf. Parking: Limited, but available on premises. Beds: comfortable -Cleanliness: booger on the lamp on the night stand; partially torn shower curtain; hair on the bath tub drain; mold on the lower end of the bath tub's handicap handle. -Noise: very noisy heater/cooler. -Furniture: dated worn-out pieces from my grandmother's attic. -Detail: discolored bath tub ceiling (2 brush strokes of paint could have gotten it back to perfect condition); rust/mold on the shower's rod (could be removed in 5 minutes with bleach); electric outlet's plate on the side of the bed loose and outlet not working; TV's wires all loose and coming out of a hole in the wall; one of the first night's towels was worn out with side threads hanging out. -Parking: this is a family motel and guests return early. So when I returned back late, there was no parking. Since Sat and Sun parking is allowed in front of the motel, I parked outside. -Breakfast: served in the lobby with only 8 to 10 seats available. If all taken, they ask you to take a tray back to your room. -Staff #1: I left the room in the morning and placed the "please clean" sign on the door. When I returned in the afternoon, a manager (??) knocked on the door and gave me an authoritative lesson saying that I should not have left the sign outside, since I did not need anything (was always under the impression that the maid, once done with the room, places the sign back on the door handle's inside the room. -Staff #2: When checked out, my friend accidentally left a phone charger plugged in an outlet. I called the same day and asked for them to find it and mail it back. Their first response was to tell me that there were going to charge my credit card! I asked them if charging my credit card 45 cents was worth it and could not cover it in the name of good customer service, since I stayed in the motel for 3 nights (and overpaid). They said NO, and promised to call me back once the charger was found. Still waiting for the call! -I travel nationally and internationally and have never encountered such horrible customer service. No American or American-raised owner or manager would ever run this kind of business with such bad customer service. -Sorry, but I would not stay there again. Tons of other places would love to have my business and they will.
The handy location and friendly and helpful employees
Nice Location for walking to attractions, handy with the parking (although a little tight but we liked the challenge!). Breakfast was terrible - cakes and muffins do not a breakfast make! Hotel needs an update and seemed a little on the expensive side for what it was.
location They did not have my reservation. If it would have been full, there would be problems for someone
It was good value for the money and the location and facilities were excellent.
It was very important to me the parking car, and the location where the hotel is. It is near of almost all places I want to visit. I don't like the carpet.
I thought the location and closeness to fishermans wharf and easyness to the other transport was great i thought that the price was a bit excessive for what we got but the location made up for some of that. We had a lot of trouble with the Wi-Fi.
Parking was convenient & location was also convenient to restaurants and sites.
Good value and good, safe location, close to bus lines.
Comfort of the rooms- clean and comfortable bed, nice bathroom, nice view from the hotel's terrace, and nice people. Cafe and continental breakfast.
The clean room, and the staff. We have stayed ther many,many times!
The staff were extremely helpful, polite and professional. I will recommend this Hotel to friends, customers and fellow sailors. When we return we will stay at the Hotel del Sol.
Excellent family friendly atmosphere!
Convenient location, very close to centre of city, able to walk to Fishermans Wharf. Very close to bus routes making it very easy to get around the city. No coffee making facility in the room
The location was great - walkable to boutique shops and restaurants, plus the marina. The hotel room was clean, offered a walk in closet and had an updated bathroom. The bed was comfortable too. They offered a year round heated pool and continental breakfast as well. This was our first stay, but it won't be our last!
Staff was awesome-location is awesome
It was in a great location to walk along Lombard Street, to the Golden Gate bridge and to Fisherman's Wharf and we felt safe in the area. Our first impression was unfortunately terrible as we were given the key to someone else's room and walked in on a group of guys drinking and smoking, very early in the morning! This made us think we had made a grave error in location and hotel choice. However, I think this was just an unfortunate experience as the hotel was quiet and the other guests orderly during the remainder of our stay. And it should be noted that smoking was not permitted in the rooms - these guests were just abusing the system!
location - great, for city tour.staff - very good. breaffast - nice but you have to eat in your room. totaly - convinient but quite expansive for similar hotels/motels. here - 170 $ for 4 guest, similar - 120$.
Nicely situated in the Marina neighborhood. Plenty of lovely restaurants there, better than downtown. There's no room for breakfast: take it outsifde at the pool or into your room.
Great location, fun decor-friendly staff a little noisy
Clean fresh rooms, colourful decor, heated pool, very good location.
It is a great hotel with excellent location, nice and clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff (Jorge was the best!) and a very good complimentary breakfast (bagels, muffins, pastries, coffee, juices, yogurt....). Next time I'm in sfo, I know where I'm staying at.......HOTEL Del sol, of course!
I enjoyed the helpfulness of staff. The rooms are well-appointed and adaptively, attractively renovated upscale from the old motor court it once was. It's clever, creative and a nice change of pace. It's a bit noisey---but to be expected in that it is old construction and all access in and out involves noise.
Motel was well equiped inc in room safe,continental breakfast,in room coffee,plus,english style pub around the corner "liverpool lils" get in early for car park space,otherwise on main rd
Great location, near Fishersmans Wharf - Golden Gate, Alcatraz, Pier 39.
excellent service by Raymond, Great location and free parking! next to kindergarten can be noisy in the morning.
I love the location and pets are ok. There is a dog park right accross the street, so very good with pets. Staff was most helpful and friendly. It has recently been remodeled so it is nicer than the last time I stayed there. Rooms are a little small.
Very handy to many S.F. activities & good restaurants yet away from the busiest/noisiest part of Lombard St. No previous reviews mentioned this but next door is a daycare center so if you don't mind the 'screaming kids' from 8:30am to 12 noon & 3 to 5pm (Mon to Fri), then ok. It only bothered us in the mornings & one afternoon we were back early. Request rooms away from this Day Care if such things bother you.
the staff was very friendly the room was dark due to an overhanging balcony and an awning. No natural light made it into the room
Friendly and helpful staff. A little problem with the heavy bags and no lift - but lots of willing help!
Good location near Golden Gate Bridge and Presidio Park. The room was damp and cold. Even new towels ended up getting wet. The shower pours too little hot water. Breakfast is terrible and the area is called "Hospitality Room" where there are just 3 tables. The problem is that guests occupy for reading newspaper and you don´t have tables availables to eat. There's no parking lot for many cars.
The knowledge of the staff was second to none,and free internet was usefull. Hotel is a little tired,bfast was a little disapointing.
very good hotel, clean, open 24/24.it isn't very central but there are 2 buses lines across the street. very good continental breakfast with milk, thè, coffe, very good banana muffins and eggs. ther's only some noisy of traffic, but we are so exhausted for tour and we stay very ok!!!
Nice staff. Near public transportation and downtown. Safe district. Noisy road and room's thin walls.
I was allowed to check in early. Great value for the room. Located within walking distance to several bus stops. Good restaurants nearby. Glad it didn't have shared bathrooms either. No A/C. I had to open the windows to cool my room down, and then the traffic was too loud to enjoy watching television.
The room was pretty nice overall. The bed was nice, and the area was pretty beautiful. a walking distance (for those who like to wonder around the city), to many cool places. When I got to the room, the carpet was a little wet, so I guess it might had a problem in a rainy day.
free internet noise on Lombarde street
Great location. The hotel is right off the 30 bus line. Nice and friendly staff. Good small free breakfast. Great value for the money. Not the warmest blankets they had a few holes in them, but everything was clean and smelled nice.
Only the location. They say that there is internet connection throughout the hotel, but in fact, you can use it only on the 2nd floor. If you are on 3 or 4th floor, you should go to the 2nd to be able to connect the internet. Also, unbelievably, they do not have parking..
convient to my conference at fort mason, reasonably priced, convient access to fisherman's wharf, comfortable rooms a little small
Convenient location near SF places of interest. Good value and very helpful staff. Rooms comfortable, with enough space to get organised. The continental breakfast was unusual for the British taste. Some of the rooms could be noisy, being close to a busy road but this is a subjective view.
The Marina Inn staff were exceptionally warm, friendly, and helpful. Our deluxe queen was spacious, clean and very pretty. The location is excellent- close to the water, many reasonably priced delicious restaurants, and boutique shopping. I highly recommend the Marina Inn The included breakfast was very basic. There was sandwich bread (next to a toaster), hard boiled eggs, yogurt, a few bananas and orange juice.
The location is fairly good, nearby food and shops and 45 min walk to pier 39. The quality is bad. The bed was horrible, i was glad it was time to get up in the morning because the bed made my back hurt. My wife had the same. The shower made alot noise, same for all other showers which we heard in the morning. Our promised breakfast was nothing more then milk and pre-packaged muffins. We decided to go out for breakfast in the end. For $65 this was not good enough. I think most reviews here are based on the hotel years ago. However it clearly aged without maintenance.
good location very noisy
Good location and price. Complimentaly breakfast was less than expected.
Felt like home when first checked in Felt not important at checking out
The kindness of the people at frontdesk. Checking-in too late (2 pm). I had to wait for two hours for rooms to get clean. Rather poor wireless connection.
Clean, cheap and parking is included No a/c and noisy (both traffic and residents)
decor of the rooms Parking area too small
The ability to park in a very busy city and the friendliness of the relief managers. The lack of facilities to make anything other than poor quality filter coffee in the room.
excellent location, parking available, clean room
Good location. For travelers with the car- free parking. Free wi fi access
Plenty of parking, comfortable bed, good shower Refrigerator did not work
A good budget motel for a short stay in SF... Small stinky room...
Location and clean Our veiw was of the room across from us nothing else
I liked the location, near tourist spots. There were an amazing amount of great restaurants within two blocks of the motel. There was adequate parking. The room was fairly large and comfortable. It was secure, with keyed entry from garage to elevators. The people at the desk were very nice. Lombard Ave. Is a busy street and it was noisy in the room from the traffic. Our room overlooked the street.
Great front desk staff, price is great for the area. Nice neighborhood
location parking overcrowed. handicapped spaces taken by non-handicapped. Elevator didn't work. Noisy guests on floor above. Double deluxe room wasn't either.
Good location to visit SF Downtown Noisy, beds very bad, breakfast to be forgoten!
- Rest room is big, parking is ok Security
Cose to where we needed to be Room smelled of urin
Clean rooms. Great for just passing through Price. Could have been $50-$80 cheaper.
Helpful staff Free parking microwave & fridge location a little updated a little bit noisy, but it's San Francisco so understandable
The staff was super friendly. The hotel was very clean. The room was a little small but perfect for us. 2 adults, 2kids. We just needed a place to sleep as we were out and about all evening and left early in the morning. I highly reccomend this hotel. About a 15 minute walk to the warf. Nothing. :-)
Hotel staff was nice, friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the rooms are noisy because they face the street. Decent hotel but needs updating. Good central location and within 10 minute walk to fisherman's wharf. I consider this a budget hotel. Avoid room 318: Very noisy and small.
Simple clean room.
clean sheets and comfortable bed very noisy location at Lombard and Franklin, musty smelling rooms, look for better options for about the same price in that area
The place is in a convenient spot, near to almost everything in SF downtown area. The staff was nice and helpful The bed and carpet were damp and had weird smell. Theres a guy sleeping on the stairs, which iscreepy. The price was a little expensive but we had no other choice due to last minute decision
Location Way too noisy, dated hotel, rooms too small, not enough parking, elevator wouldn't work.
Location. Walking distance to most of Points of interest and Pier (39) and choice of quick food Restaurants nearby. My first stay at Motel Capri was in 1971 (39 years ago) and kept coming back ever since.
The room was clean and the bed was comfortable; it was also fairly quiet for the area The furniture was shabby and the shower head wasn't very forceful
Clean room, good location
Open airy rooms conveniently located off of Lombard Street are charmingly outdated, but maintained and a good value for the money. Parking was extremely limited and presented difficulties.
Hotel staff great! Room really clean, as was the bathroom. Bed & pillows comfy. However, if you want quiet, forget it. Doors and walls paper thin and much noise from partiers. I suggest earplugs. Motel is very close to fine dining, shopping and Starbucks though, and that's a plus! Good if you are on a budget and only use it for sleep. Very noisy, so don't stay by the elevator.
Location---close to family's home. No hair dryers in rooms. I had one delivered from the office, however, so it wa okay.
Location was ok, parking easy. Had wireless internet. Room was fine. Bed a little small for 2 people (no, we are not fat). The hotel was loud - thin walls meant we could hear TVs on in adjacent rooms, and hear people having conversations outside, doors banging late at night, etc.
good location. Across from my favorite bar..... in a word disgusting. from the moment I got in to the non English speaking reception, to the sticky carpets, to the thin walls, to the parties happening after the bars closed, to the families leaving at 4:00am because they were well simply awake, to the road noise starting at 7:00am.
parking the room
The beds and pillows were very comfortable... Poor parking (of course, being in San Francisco, having any free parking is good). No air conditioning.
The price for the location was excellent. Well worth the cost of not having to deal with morning rush hour in San Francisco. Would definitely stay again. I would say they could update the bedding, other than that nothing.
Its location. i stayed for 5 nights and my room was not cleaned once.
Hair on all 3 pillows, need I say more!!! Bathroom fairly clean, but the bed had just been made again, with used sheets. Internet connection was one bar and working between connection and off line. Do you know the feeling of writing a letter and push send, and then you are offline...? See above..
Location was fine - you could walk to fisherman's wharf fairly easily. From the outside the hotel looked run-down, but the room was well-kept and clean. the bed/pillows were too soft, the wifi signal was too weak so we couldn't access the internet.
It is easily accessible to down town San Francisco using public transportation. I booked the king room and was given a double bed because the room was not available. The place looks horrible. It needs to be torn down. Too noisy.
After some of the reviews, I was a bit nervous, but overall the room was fine. Clean, relatively comfortable, friendly staff, a bit noisy.
Price was unbeatable. Bathroom was remodeled and sparkling clean. Room was very plain and basic, but clean. Location was great. Parking was free. Bed was comfortable, pillows were great. Had king rooms available at no extra cost. Room had a fridge and we froze ice in baggies (no ice machine). If you are on a very tight budget, or are a bargain shopper (like us), this is a dream come true. TV easy to work, no premium channels. Half the cost of any other motel in the Marina District, and perfect to sleep and clean up and get going. One step up from a hostel. Outside was undergoing remodel, outside floor rough where walkway carpet had been removed. Long narrow parking strip, had to back out onto the street. No clothes closet or hooks to hang clothes, we used a "towel loop" in the bathroom.No in or out of room coffee service, but a 24 hour donut shop about 2 blocks away. No ice machine. If you don't care about amenities grab this deal. If you're spoiled by free hot breakfasts, or on a fantasy vacation or romantic getaway, go elsewhere. These are not complaints, just hints of the quirky things you will find.
very good location, close to the marina, restaurants. breakfast was a joke; no fridge in the room; not so clean and very dark place
Good location - close to many city attractions. Complimentary breakfast was a joke - one very sweet cookie wrapped in a foil. That's all.
It was just a place to sleep Light bulbs burned out, one security lock broken, no lik for coffee pot so it did not work. The place was clean.
Room #308 needs a face lift..that's where I stayed the 1st time. However, the price was good and the staff friendly & helpful, and was close to my doctors/hospital. So I decided to come back & rm #309 was perfect. I brought my my own washcloths, & a few other things to make me comfy (my pillow & a throw) since I never use blankets/comforters that hotels/motels provide. I always put remote for tv in zip-lock, and I'm good to go!! Priced right plus free parking. I will always return here unless I'm with my Sweetie, then he foots the bill in 4 star hotels. I like coming here.
good value for money, very helpfull staff! They have plenty of tips to discover the city. Very kind. Ideally situated to discover the city, parking available, busses nearby. Would recommend it to everyone!
The office staff was friendly. There is an elevator which is a big plus. We stayed during Fleet Week, and we were happy to have a room for a reasonable price anywhere in San Francisco. Lombard Street is noisy twenty-four hours a day. Although our room was in the back, there was still a lot of street noise.
Close to downtown The continental breakfast consists in a pastry (no choice). No choice, very poor breakfast, you have to eat in room, no other spaces. one day they didn't clean my room. If I would do one phone call, my phone was broken, I try to advice the staff but no way to resolve the problem. one night there was no space for parking, we had to park in another space, and we had to pay. very bad service, staff very rude.
This realy is a great hotel in a great neighbourhood! It was realy cheap for this location, and there was free parking and free wifi. For breakfast you just walk for 5 minutes down the street, and there are several reataurants.
Very pleasant stay, but simple rooms. Owner is very accomodating Be prepared to ask for another room if you prefer non-smoking! The hotel is 'non-smoking' but some of the rooms have a heavy presence of smoke, so be prepared to ask.
Nice, clean room. A bit noisy, but better than I expected. Noise.
Many TV channel availables for free. Nihil
Great price the bed was comfortable. The shower.
Nothing at all. Receptionist lied and said we would be charged even if we cancel the room, ended up staying at the marina motel across the street, way better room with kitchen and couch + room for cheaper than what la luna was asking for.
Location is ok Expensive for what you get Shower is disgusting Room is ok- but not with the price
Very clean and the staff was very friendly. The location is good and they have free parking. The hotel is right on a busy street so you get street noise but just turn on the air unit and it's enough white noise to take car of it. The room is small but has all you need.
proximity to restaurants ants in the bathroom and main room
Advertise King bed, but was only a queen. Continental breakfast was horrible, why even bother. Otherwise it felt like a budget hotel even when we were "upgraded" to a deluxe room. Maybe places in the city just aren't great value, although I've stayed at a nicer place for a better price in the Tender Loin, even though that area is one I'd never spend time in again.
The room was clean and spacious, and both my friend and I had parking spaces close to the room. The room didn't have microwave--I heated a carafe of water in the coffee maker to make a bowl of instant oatmeal in the morning. The clerk at the front desk was pleasant, but seemed perturbed when I asked for a second parking pass. He knew that my friend and I were arriving separately, but was surprised that we both had cars.
Nice location. Relatively cozy. Their breakfast was more of a snack, but hey, it was free. The walls/ceilings are way too thin. It sounded like we had a heard of rhinoceroses above us. Luckily there were no bed bugs, but it seems at one time there was because of old bed bug stains on the sheets.
Works great when you are visiting the marina or the palace of fine arts. Great location for lots of SF activities. It is on Lombard street so it is a bit noisy but not bad for the price Noisy, needs renovating.
