Worth it
2-night stay with friends. This hotel is for folks who want to be in the North Beach area, within walking distance of Ghiradelli Square, and want free parking. WiFi worked great. Parking was fine for our mid-sized rental. Staff was friendly and attentive. Breakfast was a grab-and-go affair in the smallish lobby area. We were on the street side and noise was not a problem. Rooms were roomier than I expected, and had a nice refrigerator. Our 3rd floor rooms had a view of the Golden Gate bridge. The 3rd floor indoor/outdoor "lounge/patio" areas were VERY nice! We watched the fog roll in and out over the bridge while sipping wine and resting our feet. Met a couple of European visitors who were on return stays at this hotel due to their satisfaction with the property.

Convenient , Affordable, Clean !
It was a quick stop for 2 days on our way to Hawaii. The Buena vista motor in , was in a great location as tourists . Close to everything you’d want to see in San Francisco. Family friendly , Clean , and reasonable prices compared to other places . They had free breakfast and a parking garage as well. The only negative I’d say would be that it was a little noisy from traffic in the area , since it’s closer to the popular sites for tourists . But it wasn’t too bad. I’d definitely stay there again should I ever return to San Fransisco .

Nice place for tourists
The hotel was nice, great location, clean and great service. Breakfast had a good variety. If you plan on sightseeing and using the hotel just to sleep, shower, grab a muffin and coffee, It’s great. The shower heads didn’t have much pressure but there was hot water. It was pretty loud outside and we could hear it in the morning but we intended to get up early so it wasn’t a big issue for us. Overall a good stay.

Basic no-frills hotel but good value for the money
The hotel is in do-so condition and a little outdated, but the service, cleanliness of the room, free parking, and free breakfast made up for it. The location is great for exploring all of the points of interest. The breakfast area is a little crammed but we managed to get a decent breakfast every morning (cereal, pastries, coffee)

Good but not excellent!
Very good location, clean and comfortable rooms. Good breakfast but not enough space to eat; shower water pressure not good enough. Overall very satisfied.
