“For a low $$ budget, a great service!”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

Large rooms that fit 2 queen beds comfortably,clean stylish bathrooms, free underground parking, FREE wifi for every device you bring, and good choices for a continental breakfast (croissants, 3 kinds of muffins, fresh fruits, juice, coffee and hot chocolate). Did i mention free parking and wifi? I'm sorry i have to compare, but 2 days later we moved to Hyatt Regency ($$$) for business and they charge $10/day/device for wifi !!! The staff at NobHill was so nice and helpful.

We found this hotel when running away from another awfull stay elsewhere. Not k owing San Francisco it is always a shot on the dark, but we actually visited the property and looked at the rooms prior to booking it.

It is a not a fancy motor inn, but it offers free parking (though limited), free wifi, A/C (a lot of hotels DO NOT in San Fran because the buildings are so old), and most importantly : the rooms are spacious, clean, and adequate.

We enjoyed our stay, the staff was courteous, an the location is GREAT. We recommend walking for breakfast : the crepe factory and toast were great options we truly enjoyed. The 'continental breakfast' was non existent, I wish they wouldn't even offer it, they had pre-packaged pastries, instant coffee/hot chocolate - that's it.
It wasnt a big deal for us, we were on vacation and wanted to indulge in a nice hot breakfast.

Recommended! Not fancy but spacious, clean, free wifi and parking.

We have stayed here before and returned because it was good value and clean.... BUT WE WILL NEVER RETURN. We were awakened by LOUD LOUD yelling and voices and partying females going in and out of a room and management did NOT do anything... were they prostitutes? Sure seemed like it with their clothing and activities. For 2 hours they were coming and going and YELLING. Night manager did NOTHING. Day manager did NOT accommodate our request for a refund or discount. HE DID NOT CARE. This place claims to be 100% non-smoking but THESE GUESTS were SMOKING day and night. Yes, we were angry and sleep deprived and are still very unhappy and dissatisfied. What has happened to customer service????

Room Tip: Do not stay here. Also there is noise from top floor rooms.

After staying at over 9 hotels before arriving in San Francisco, we were so disappointed with this choice. Don't be fooled by the website promising you high standards of cleanliness and customer satisfaction. It is a dump.
We entered our room and were confronted by a disgusting smell. It didn't go away and we all felt sick by the morning. Breakfast is also a big disappointment. It consisted of stale pastries only.
So please take my advise and don't stay here. Spend a little more and stay in a decent place.
Even 1 night is too long.
