Fodorites sing the praises of this affordable motor inn, calling it "a good family hotel if you have a car to park" and touting the lively North Beach location and proximity to Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf. Outside, the cable car dings by as guests cozy up in basic rooms decked out with oversize pillows, earth-toned bedding, and large flat-screen TVs. Big windows offer the occasional glimpse of downtown. A helpful staff, free parking, and Wi-Fi add to the allure. Off-season
rates are a steal.
