The location is good. The price was not so high considering the late booking and the average of prices in SF. Free parking is a great opportunity especially in the week days (parking in SF is crazy). The room was clean and comfortable, very quiet room on the second floor (number 236). The staff was nice. It's a pity that breakfast finishes so early, I love sleeping till late on holiday.

Our usually Hotel in the Marina district was occupied, so we had to make a different reservation. Unfortunately this place was very noisy, we are used to noisy environments so not usually something that we notice, there the Courtyard is very noisy and the doors have direct access underneath, so no soundproofing. Also its directly on Lombard with all the traffic noise being funnelled into the room. If you have no problems with that its a good stay. Rooms are clean and ammenties are as they sho... Read more

While vacationing in San Francisco my husband was injured and required emergency surgery. Since the hotel I was staying in could not accommodate my extended stay (because they were booked past our original check out date) I moved to this Howard Johnson location. I booked online and arrived to check in while my husband was in surgery. I asked for a room on the first floor anticipating my husband's release from the hospital within 24 to 36 hours. The desk clerk said no problem he would give me... Read more

I found this to be in an ideal location being a tourist. Having decided that I wanted to walk and ride to a lot of the site seeing locations in S.F. this hotel was ideally situated. There were a couple bike hire places well within walking distance along with plenty of cafes and restaurants for eating out (Jake's Steaks is just around the corner and I loved them for a tasty but cheap eat and a drink at the bar). I wasn't expecting thrills with this hotel and I got what I expected. The biggest dis... Read more

A great place to stay if you're on a budget & don't want to spend big bucks for a bed. Our room was clean & comfortable. There were some permanent stains on the armchair, but no real biggie to us. Great location with easy access to all major attractions. The staff was friendly and helpful. Enjoyed our visit to the Silver Cloud bar just a few doors down from HoJo's. My wife and I enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

The front desk people are very friendly and professional. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the location is great; there are several restaurants and bars within 2 blocks of the hotel. The acoustics of the hotel make it a bit loud, however, and each of the 3 times I've stayed here, I've been awakened in the middle of the night due to loud party-goers returning to their rooms, slamming their doors and speaking loudly which echoes throughout the building. So, I have not slept through the ... Read more

Upon arrival we were checked in bu a somewhat frazzled overwhelmed looking but friendly young man. It went all downhill from there. We were checked in to a room next to a noisy and extremely filthy ice machine. ( Apparently the"Price Line Room" Upon entering the room I fond the furniture in the " NON SMOKING" covered with cigarette burn marks. The runner on the bed was covered in stains of unknown nature. Lampshade dirty and damaged. Bathroom door inside and out with brown stains. (Dried blood o... Read more

I booked this room because I was looking for an inexpensive hotel in a nicer part of San Francisco since I was traveling with my teen daughter, so the lower quality didn't come as a surprise. It was fine for our needs because we knew we would be basically just sleeping in the room. I do have to say it was probably the worst continental breakfast ever...I think the milk was the only thing of sustenance. No eggs or yogurt for protein-all white breads/cereals. There were about 6 parking spots in t... Read more

The room was clean and comfortable. The customer service was excellent. We arrived a few hours earlier than check-in but the front desk allowed us to park our car there so we could go out and see the city without having to find other parking around town, which would have been very costly. They provided a nice map of the city with all bus routes. Comfortable beds and pillows. The breakfast left a lot to be desired, no waffles or much variety. There was no microwave or fridge in the room. There w... Read more

We have found really nice deal in internet, so the balance between the price and the quality - has been amazing! The room was clean, everything in places, also some things which you might need (iron, hairdryer). Lovation of the property - was really really great! The only tricky thing was about the parking. If you find a place - you are lucky, if no - no. I recommend this place!

The location is a sure winner! Right on Lombard street, next to bars and restaurants, and also has parking (limited so you might want to keep your car there...) The room we got was facing the street and it was a little loud since the windows did not isolate the sound too well, but it was bearable. The good? Great front desk staff who were really helpful with everything. Helped us with tips about the place, directions and where to go and what to do. Huge thanks!!! Breakfast was ok, but its comp...

This is not a fancy hotel, but it's clean, reasonably priced, in one of the fun places of San Francisco, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The street directly behind Lombard (Chestnut) has delightful shops and restaurants. Don't miss the side streets between Lombard and Chestnut they also hold some very fine dining establishments. All in all this is a great place to stay.

Before we stay this hotel, we read a lot bad reviews about it. However, when we stayed there, it was good experience. The room is clean, bed is comfortable, internet is good, & big TV. The staff is very friendly, & provide a lot travel insights. There is also a free parking, which is first come first serve. It is huge deal in SF! One downside is that breakfast is so shabby, only coffee, English muffins, juice are available. Overall we had good experiences there!

the Howard Johnson in SF was very well priced compared to other hotels in the city. it wasn't luxurious but it was comfortable enough for our stay. The towels were pretty rough and some had light stains and small holes but they seemed clean. Overall, the room was clean and the staff was very nice and helpful!

We liked the room and staff was friendly. Wifi was not great and other guests were terrible. In the late evening and during the night there was a lot of noise from people having conversations in the hallway. Even after asking if they could be more quiet it wouldn't stop. It was like sleeping in a youthhostel.

You are mainly paying for location here. The hotel is about 2 stars as far as amenities/luxuries/qualities go. It looks like a motel. The staff is friendly and helpful here. Continental breakfast is typically not great at all anywhere, but there was just about nothing to eat...

The sheets, pillowcases, towels, and wash clothes were SPOTLESS, but the shower curtain, bath rug, and bed cover had obvious stains on them. I reported this and was assured that the situation would be looked into. I was staying for 3 nights, but the little coffee maker in the room only had one serving. Since I like to save laundry costs for the motel, I don't require the staff to change out my linens. When I told the desk clerk that I wished to have 2 more servings of coffee for the maker, I wa...

This motel is greatly located on lombard street. Be aware parking is on a first come basis so we did have to wait around for 20mins until a spot became available. The hotel room was clean, quiet and as you'd expect. WiFi pretty slow and annoying but over all staff were super friendly and helpful so not a bad stay

Stumbled upon this because they had the best rate with a reasonable rating. So happy we stayed here. Room was clean and felt nice. Staff were very friendly and very helpful and accomodating. Breakfast was simple but absolutely fine. No elevator so be prepared for one (or two) flights of stairs. Would definitely stay here again
Submitted on 08-10-2016
We stayed here because it was one of the few hotels that didn't say they had parking with a "first come first serve" disclaimer. However, the parking was VERY limited so we ended up without a spot most nights. They let people double park as well, blocking in other guests. It was also very noisy and we had stains on our carpet, all expected based on the price, but was very disappointed that the only reason we booked it wasn't a valid reason.

We will definitely return to beautiful San Francisco someday and this is where we will stay. The staff are wonderful and very helpful; rooms are clean; beds comfortable; great location. The rooms are not fancy and can be a little noisy, but the price is certainly right. Special thanks to Sangita and Mayank for all their wonderful suggestions!
