"Hotel with great staff and location but poor water"
The location was great and the front desk was nice but the water pressure was horrible!!! I literally had to have my husband get me buckets of water to rinse my hair! Room was spacious with it said it had a kitchenette which it didn't and the upstair room was loud at all hours of the night... Not sure I'll stay again.
Surf Motel is located in the Marina District. The motel is close to many restaurants, bars, and boutiques. It is an exterior …More
This hotel wasn't the best hotel but it had what I needed for my stay. Some fast food restaurants nearby, it's located at the front of one of the principal streets; there is a convenience store at the corner. The only thing I was a little worry about was the parking. They have only 10 or 12 parking spaces for all the rooms. So, if you don't get one, you have to parking on the street, where you have to pay for the parking. But in my case I was lucky to find a place inside the hotel.
For the price it's a great hotel. The staff was super nice and helpful and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast has a great selection. It's only a 10 minute walk to fisherman's wharf or there is a bus stop a block away that will take you 2 blocks away from fisherman's wharf. Next time I go to SF I will be staying there again
We were very lucky to get a parking spot , parking is very limited at this hotel. Under the advice from the Front desk . We left our car and walk took the bus and a taxi, which was great way to explore San Francisco. We were 20 minutes walk away from fisherman's wharf and the trolley cars. On our last day leaving the hotel we went straight up Lombard Street up the hill which was a very steep hill and took the crookedest street in the city down the hill .
It was really worth the price, the location was excellent (close to golden gate bridge). Rooms were big and clean, the bathroom seens to have been recently remodeled.
Best part of all, u get FREE parking ( a $3X value in SF).
Just what we were looking for to save money for eating out and sightseeing. Friendly and helpful staff. Only complaints are thin walls and steep hills away from city attractions however for the price it was perfect.
