stayed here on business for a week last month. Loved this sweet little motel. Anybody wanting a true business hotel should go ahead and stay downtown, but for me it was perfect and a nice change of pace. The rooms are very small but very comfortable. The bed was probably one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept...

I have stayed here several times. The Motel was built for the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge. It has retained much of the charm and beauty of that bygone time. The rooms have suites with attached kitchens. The beds are comfortable and the noise level is minimal. The Pacific Ocean is a block away and the sounds of Seagulls...

Nice place. Real friendly. Cute little old place. Has a cool court yard and also allows dogs. Small rooms but enough to get you what you need. Bed was comfortable and is walking distance to beach and also a coffee shop in the morning. Tram goes by and can hear it but didn't affect our sleep.

We rented a little suite with two rooms and a kitchen. All a little retro, but very clean and fun. The kitchen was well equipped for tea and coffee and leftovers from our other food sources. The bathroom was very, very tiny, but we managed to make do. The staff was friendly and answered all our questions. Quiet neighborhood and...

The motel is cozy and charming, well maintained and comfortable. It's also a visual delight and located only two blocks from the beach near the zoo and a short walk to Java Beach. Staff very friendly and accommodating even with our slightly late arrival. Can't complain about the trolley noise, slept like a log and normally any noise awakes me.

Researching this trip I was really drawn to this place for its art deco styling and location near the ocean in a residential area, but was so disappointed that the trip advisor locals tried to deter us from staying here,(repeatedly advised by locals not travellers it was a poor location for a San Francisco vacation ) We found it to...

What a wonderful motel! The neighborhood is beautiful, safe, and right by the ocean. We spent most of our stay by the ocean. Also it was so convenient having the L-train right there to hop on and off for cheap, we could take it to fisherman's Warf, height Ashbury, and market street.The motel has everything wanted and all thought of....

Room was smaller then I thought it would be since their was a queen and a twin size bed in our room. We were located on the second floor which really wasn't an issue but due to the fact that we had our dog (3 mos. old) it was a bit of a hassle getting him up and down for...

Very small but had everything we needed for a family of 4. Loud train every hour or so but that added to our city experience. Two blocks from the beach and about 2 miles from the SF Zoo. We ate at the Ocean Beach Brewery 1 mile away. Highly recommended

Loved this charming, cozy, Art Deco motel! My boyfriend has been here before and the prices are very reasonable for the area. Walking distance to the zoo, the beach, and restaurants. Public transportation is readily available. Would return and recon to anyone.
