We were two women (older) traveling alone. We can not say enough good things about this hotel. It was very clean, safe area, easy access to public transportation, the staff was wonderful. We were there 9-29-04 to 10-4-04.

Stayed a single night here last week. The (top floor) room was clean and spacious, and the front desk hosts were very friendly and helpful. Free parking seems to be quite a rarity in the city, so it was definitely a plus. We had reservations at a more expensive hotel downtown the following two nights, and I wish we'd stayed...

This place was perfect for us. Very clean. In a great neighborhood.We walked around the corner to the coffee shops, bagel shops, drug store and health food stores. Everyone at the inn and around the area was so friendly. The free parking was such a plus. Try Polker's restaurant for lunch, very good. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We stayed at Nob Hill Motor Inn for 6 nights in August 2004. We made our choice based on Trip Advisor reviews and were very happy with the property. The location is excellent, walking distance to waterfront, and there are several good restaurants nearby. There is a public bus service to downtown at the corner and the cable car is...

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Nob Hill Motor Inn. They have nice rooms with comfortable beds/pillows. It was really convenient to walk most anywhere right from the hotel. We would highly recommend the Nob Hill.

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our trip to SF. I found the desk staff to be helpful - they arranged for our room to be ready early and pointed out other places of interest we may have missed. The room was one of the smallest I believe - which was my fault as I only...

What a great find in a big city. My husband and I stayed 3 nights at the end of August. The room was a nice size and very clean. We felt very safe walking to the Wharf, and the couple blocks to the cable cars. We were given great direction to all the places we wanted to go. The people...

My wife and I have stayed at the Nob Hill at least 7 or 8 times and have never been disappointed. I know the area well enough that I feel like I lived there. It's within walking distance of many cool places. The staff have always been top shelf, the rooms have refrigerators, and parking is included. I always think...

We chose to stay at this motel for three days in August based on reviews we read here. Originally we had booked a hotel in the Union Square area, but wanted something in a neighborhood versus downtown. We were not disappointed.

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
