Clean comfortable rooms and nice staff”

Convenient location

Buena Vista Motor Inn attracted us because the price included two queen beds, continental breakfast and free parking. Our family with two young adult daughters had adequate space and the beds were very comfortable. The shower was hot and had great pressure. We were within a 15-20 minute walk of Fisherman's Wharf and Ghiradelli Square. The hotel is at the edge of historic Cow Hollow, with nice shopping and interesting homes. Another nice feature is the clientele is mostly international. We would definitely stay here again.

Two nights in San Fran!”

Price, breakfast included, location

The Buena Vista is as advertised, a budget Inn in a great location. It was spotless and clean, beds were very comfy but it just needs a "lick of paint and a bit of decorating". The breakfast was a surprise as we weren't expecting it to be included, but you need to take it back to your room as there is very little space in the lobby. The rooms are a good size, bathrooms between our four rooms differed. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. All in all a good stay!

It was a good, functional hotel/motel.”

Breakfast, room cleanliness, central location.

Got to the hotel and immediately given enough information to get in and settled. The breakfast was good, though a continental buffet, I.e. it is a selection of Danish Pastries and muffins, great fruit and coffee, tea and orange juice. The breakfast was in the lobby, with seating for about 4-6 (total number) on plush seats and people are encouraged to take their food to their rooms if no space is available. The room was one of the biggest I have stayed in, but it was at the front of the hotel, overlooking a busy street, so not the quietest. The bathroom was huge, shower was good, but the fittings were quite old. The decoration in the hotel is not the best, personally and this is kind of indicated by the pink paint on the outside. Do not go to this hotel for the views or the prettiness of the hotel. Strangely, it is about 10 minute's walk from the crookedest road in the world and this section of the road is a big draw in the area - note, walk there and do not bother with a car at the weekends, as there are cues almost from the hotel to the crooked road section. The hotel is pretty near to the bay and the nice views, so it was great for us. Interestingly, one lobby attendant gave us water for our water bottle, but another refused and said that they only had hot water, so service was inconsistent.

Its a good location for visitors to San Francisco as its walking distance to Fisherman Wharf, cable car/tram stop. Take a ride on the cable car to Chinatown and Union Square, its a nice experience. The breakfast is good and they serve fruits daily.

Building is rather old but is at a great location”

Free parking, near to popular places like Ghiradelli Square, Fisherman's Wharf, Lombard (zig zag street)

Parking at San Francisco is really expensive so having free parking is really a plus point but the garage is not locked and there isn't any attendant looking after the cars so do not put any valuables in your vehicle. The deluxe room with 2 queen beds was big enough, bathrooms were clean but building is really old and it's time to upgrade their old school TVs to LCDS at least. Guy at check-in counter was somehow very dull and look like he was really bored at work but we got all the information we needed from him though so all's cool. Breakfast was bad though. Coffee, juice, a few pastries and that was it. It wasn't even a proper breakfast area. You can choose to bring your "breakfast" to the 3rd level lounge/patio area.

location, price, space

Hotel was easy to find, can walk to fisherman's wharf and piers. Walked to pier 33 to cruise to Alcatraz. There's a cable car station nearby too. Take all the way to union square. But realised taking bus is cheaper. Take cable car at least once for experience. Overall, no complains about hotel besides the simple breakfast, though you wouldn't wan to eat too if there's other food nearby too! Happy with this hotel.

Nice location and value!!!”

Free parking, Distance to the Fishermans wharf /Bay area and WiFi/Breakfast was included too (booked it under a $100 including taxes on Priceline).

It was good! Its a tremendous location as its only a 10 minute walk to the Fishermans Wharf area (great views and shopping). Also, there was good restaurant access within walking distance (and a gym which was important to me). I was pleased with the stay (the free parking is an added bonus); its a little older but the room was very clean.

This hotel had very dated decor, dirty carpets, and a smell which wasn't overpowering but annoying. The hotel had free parking which was nice but it didn't have much else going for it. The bathroom was dated but clean and the room made me feel like I was in the 1980s. There are a few good restaurants nearby and is a budget hotel for those who want to stay near Fisherman's wharf.
