    We stayed at the holiday inn for two nights. Hotel was clean and well taken care of. Would stay there again if I was in San Francisco. Breakfast was very pricey. Bring your own breakfast food possible.

    Yes there are several rental locations in about a mIle radius. I rented from enterprise and they came and picked me up and dropped me off. I could have walked, however it would have been about a mile each way.
