Good wifi Reasonable location but still a good walk to get anywhere. Free parking
No fridge No breakfast room, Poor breakfast choice.
We had a back room so no traffic noise. The staff were friendly and helpful. We were able to book for the Big Bus Tour at reception. The one stop is at the hotel front door. It was a 20 minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf. If you had a car there was free parking. Rooms were comfy. I would stay here again.
Breakfast is basic but good enough to start the day. Small space but you just get your food and go eat at the lobby on you room floor level where there are tables.
My partner and I were in town for 2 nights during the Navy's Fleet Week for an unrelated event. Lodging in San Fran was hard to find but the Buena Vista had room for us and our cargo van. Free parking was a great bonus. The room was dated but clean and serviceable. The front desk manager was exceptionally helpful. We would stay here again.
The location was excellent. The staff was very nice and, most importantly, the room was clean and comfortable. We would choose it again.
After living in SF for 6 years, I hadn't been back in 4. My friends and I wanted to have a good time and be centrally located to some great districts. The Buena Vista was great because we could walk to the water in 10 minutes and were able to explore Fisherman's Wharf. The other places we went to at night were only a $15 cab ride away. The hotel had a fabulous rooftop where you could sit and enjoy the view of the Golden Gate Bridge!!! We had so much fun and I would definitely stay here again.
I wish that the snack machine wasn't broken and that the soda machine had more drinks-it sold out our first night. Also, I wish the water pressure in the shower was stronger.
Good location - 15 mins walk to Fishermans Wharf or The Marina; 10 minute walk to nearby Union Street where there were good shops, restaurants & bus routes
Busy main road meant traffic noise a problem at night - and our room was not at the front, which would have been worse
Location...we walked a lot and this hotel wasn't far from waterfront..Lombard St and eateries Car park facilities were good
Pretty unhelpful reception on first arriving. We were early but after long drive needed toilets. Bluntly told none we could use! Breakfast choice about as basic as it comes. And about three seats on the ground floor for the entire hotel guests to use! Some space if you take a tray up to the area on the third floor. But..cheap for San Fran...so you get what you pay for
I liked the location. Union Street in Cow Hollow is just a few blocks away. Nice walk to Fishermans Wharf and easy access to Muni.
I thought it was a little pricey for what you get. I bring groups and it can add up.
Located at a street close to main travel opportunities
Rooms had a 1950-ies feeling and atmosphere, noisy icemaker in the hallway, limited parking, staff seemed tired, the whole place was old and shabby...
The. Final. Cost. Was. 100. More. Than. The. Booking...didn't. Like. All. The. City. Taxes!!!
Location Comfortable bed
Ripped curtains Noisy rooms at front
Helpful staff and very convenient parking and location
Had an overhead bulb that was out the only light other than lamps so staff must have known but never replaced
Great location. Helpful staff. Very comfy beds.
The only good thing about this place is the location.
Room 109 at back has view of wall and very gloomy. Breakfast a bit basic.
Ease of registration
Bar closed 9.40pm would haved liked a drink before turning in especially when dinner is advertised until 10 pm
About halfway between Fisherman's Warf and Union Square. A bit of walk but exercise to counter food. Staff pleasant and helpful, room good size, very clean, good breakfast. Recommended!
Our room was on the front so traffic noise could be intrusive. One group insisted on meeting in the breakfast area, lack of consideration!
Value for money accommodation that is situated close to main city areas, and in fact is just down the road from the very chic neighbourhood of Union Street. Free parking a serious benefit.
Yes it's in need of redecoration, the breakfast rather spartan and the sound insulation from the main road poor, but for the price (including free parking) and if you're passing through the city, the hotel is OK.
super location, parking soooo convenient, great price, friendly and helpful staff. dont expect luxury with the price you pay, but we were after a clean place with parking and good location. wifi is excellent as well! will come back for sure!!
Big room, clean, good shower, friendly staff.
A lot of noise from the street. Should have better windows. Bed was too soft for our taste. Breakfast is a joke. Only different types of danish pastry and some apples. Nothing with nutrition in it. Cleaning lady knocked on the door at 8.30 on the day of our check out - not okay! Should know when we were gone.
Good Location, Free Parking
Large room. Very helpful front desk staff. Free parking in basement garage _ we never took our car out until leaving. Location we could walk to Fisherman's Wharf, trolleys, restaurants. Great variety of pastries, coffee and juice for breakfast. Coffee in room.
No refrig in room.
Location,basic but adequate breakfast,staff wonderful, helpful and very pleasant,
Easy to get to and find. Not far to walk to the seafront (Fort). Friendly staff - they gave us a new room when we complained.
Walls and doors need to be cleaned. Very noisy on one side of the hotel. Very poor choice for breakfast - no hot food, not even waffles. Not all rooms have fridges.
The location of this hotel was great for getting on tours and seeing things of interest.
The bed had to be changed before we could get in. Breakfast was not what I was expecting and my view for a very expensive price was a wall.
