This hotel was under renovation and there was No free Breakfast and that is why I gave it 4 stars. (the holiday inn just across the street had free BFAST - just syin) They did give us a daily $5.00 vending machine credit - which My son loved. Hotel was clean and staff was very friendly. AND very conveniently close to everything.

The hotel itself was in a good location with transport links outside and a 10 minute walk from pier 39 And there’s a Denny’s, everyone loves a Denny’s! Read less

The hotel is currently undergoing some renovation work but this did not bother us at all and you wouldn’t even know it was taking place. Staff were very friendly and helpful and helped with any questions we had. The location of the hotel is great if you want to be close to pier 39, Alcatraz and the Golden gate. If you want the shops and main part of town it is walkable but might be better to get the cable car as there is a stop near. For a Holiday Inn it really was a nice hotel with free WiFi everywhere.

Landed in San Francisco for an overnight before heading to San Jose, CA. Stayed at Holiday Inn on Beach Street. Perfect location to all attractions. After parking the car, we were able to walk everywhere. Denny’s Restaurant is attached to hotel so we didn’t have to walk outside. Staff were SUPER friendly and helpful. Les took our luggage upstairs to our room and we found him to be a very professional and personable man. This was our second time at this hotel and we were not let down from first wonderful experience. Read less
