Fodor's Review

Reminiscent of the motor courts of yesteryear, this family-owned motel is an inexpensive option within walking distance of restaurants, bars, and shops in the Marina District. Although some rooms are next to the street, others are tucked away inside a courtyard planted with flowers and trees. The individual enclosed garages are a nice feature, too, especially in a neighborhood notorious for its lack of street parking. The motel, on the busy thoroughfare of Lombard Street,

is of an older vintage, which translates to thin walls and no air-conditioning (though unnecessary on all but the hottest days). All rooms have been recently refreshed with new French country–style furnishings, thick windows, and carpet. Some rooms have kitchenettes with eating areas, and all have spotless baths and small shower stalls. Despite roaring traffic, the motel is a good value in a popular location.
