We stayed here for two nights on our tour. Overall we were happy with the Tuscan Inn, especially the location, the friendly and helpful staff and their restaurant, Pescatore, was simple but attractive and the staff were friendly. Overall, the hotel is a little "tired" and needs sprucing up. Our room was small and the bathroom was tiny, even by...

I would have given it 5 stars for the wine hour, flavored water, and coffee in the morning, BUT, the room we had was about the smallest room I have ever had. Also, I emailed ahead of time asking for a room with a view, sadly we did not get it. So 3 stars for the room size and view,...

Hi Judith R - Thanks for staying with us and for taking the time to share your experience. Appreciate the kind words and I'm sorry for the disappointment with your room. Our rooms are indeed "cozy" and as a four story building a few blocks removed from the SF Bay and surrounded by other buildings, one of the features we...

Not a good first impression on arrival but problem solved. Great location and mostly very friendly staff. Room was a bit dated with views only of the surrounding buildings at the rear. Maybe not my first choice next time as I would stay downtown than at the Wharf.

We were especially thrilled with the concierge expertise of Hugo, who showed a real passion for his work and the City.

We booked this hotel in San Francisco for our first two nights after arriving from the UK. We wanted somewhere nice and comfortable to stay that would be near to the main attractions, as we had limited time before we set off for the rest of our trip. The check-in process was great; they had even saved us a glass...

Stayed 2 nights at start of long driving holiday having arrived from UK. Great location. 5 minute walk to the popular Fisherman's Wharf, to cable car, city bus tour ( recommend) and ferry trips. No view but quiet room with 2 very comfortable queen sized beds and quiet, ideal for recuperating.
