Good location. Mel's Diner is "next door."

Pros: Basic, but clean. Good location for me.
Location: At the Marina area. Appears to be in a very "active" area (beach; grocery stores; restaurants; near the water). Ft. Mason wedding/reception, for me.
Basic lodging. Didn't know (nor was advised), of "breakfast room," (coffee etc). Easy to locate and readily accessible.

The best deal in town

Pros: Close restaurants, close night life
Cons: No free Internet
The Surf Motel is the best value for a stay in San Fran's marina district. The rooms arent nice but they are clean and comfortable.

Nice stay for small bugdet

If you don't want to spend a lot of money or you don't want to go into an hostel this is your place. Nice clean rooms, with tv and wi-fi, free parking and in a good neighborhood. The service was also great. For the breakfast it's just a muffin or a pastry but for the price you pay, you can go elsewhere to eat a real breakfast.

Makes the Bates Motel look like a four seasons!!

First off, let me state that we did not stay here. My Wife and I were returning from funeral services on the central Oregon coast. We just wanted a bed for a few hours of sleep on our way back to L.A. we call this 'Hotel' at about 5pm to get a room for the same night. Well we realized that it would be later then we had hoped in getting going, so at 7:15pm we call the 'Hotel' to tell them and that they can cancel our reservation. The lady on the phone IMMEDIATELY went into a frenzy of verbal abuse. She said that we needed to call 3 days ahead to cancel..... we made the call 2 hours earlier. Then she said that she has been turning people away left and right since 10am because they had no rooms, we got the last.... again, we had just called 2 hours ago, how are they holding a room for us for 7 hours BEFORE we even called!! This went on for about 20 minutes, no cancellation was given. So enough about the pleasant customer service. My Wife and I talked about this, and even though it was a crazy drive..we decided, for whatever reason, to go straight through to San Fran. and give then another chance. We arrived in the city around 5:30am and 10 hours of driving. We found the place, and both my Wife and I turned to each other and shivered. saying the place was a dump would be insulting to dumps. needless to say..we ran away for our lives. Out of curiosity, my wife looked up info on the Internet about this place.....NOTHING but horrible info. report after report of bed bug and cockroach infestations just for starters. There were cars in the parking lot, I wanted to call 911 of their behalf, the poor people must have been drugged and dragged there to stay. Unfortunately I cannot rate this place with negative values. All I can say is if you need a place to stay in San Francisco, there are plenty of other places...avoid this place at all cost.
