It's Clean. Location is excellent if you are a tourist, but I wouldn't use if your stay is business oriented. I find outrageous the prize for a 2 queen beds room (almost U$950 for 3 nights). I would look for something else next time.

Clean and friendly place. Beds were ok, but nothing special. We were at a Hostile and could not make it, so we were thankful for this hotel. Parking is $66 a day. Denny’s is practically in the lobby. Show your room key for 10% off.

The hotel was located two blocks from Pier 39. There were many activities and places to eat within walking distance. The hotel has a Denny's restaurant on site that served large portions. We only ate breakfast. For four people, breakfast ran about $70 on average. This is San Francisco and expect expensive meal costs.

The Holiday Inn Fisherman's Wharf is nothing special but it was clean and well located. The staff were friendly, we could walk to everything, it was quiet, they offered cool drinks in the lobby. Who wants to spend a lot of time in a hotel room anyway when the weather is perfect and the bay is out your front door! Get out and explore.

Hotel is partly open, main building is under construction. Large clean room with 2 queen beds, good working aircon, a fridge and a deluxe coffeemaker (with cup's). Free WiFi. Small safe with a key lock ? Not up to the standards of today. We had a room almost against the front but we had no problem with street noise. We did had a MAJOR problem with the disturbing noise of the aspiration in the bathroom and since we were on the top floor it seemed that the turbine was direct above us. The whole night we suffered from the noise, I even put a small wet towel in front of the extraction grille, it helped for 50%. Couldn't sleep without earplugs. Our friends had a room opposite to ours and they suffered from noise of loading/unloading garbage or supply trucks starting at 5 am banging against the large metal containers. Due to the renovation there is no facility to have breakfast in the hotel, although there is a Dennis diner in the house we looked out for a better breakfast spot on our one and found a marvelous place across the street at Allalena Vinoteca restaurant. Purely because of the noise my score would be 2* but the magnificent location added a third * Read less
