Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dances with Light Too noisy
While bed was comfortable, the tub was clogged and left you standing in 4" of water after a shower. Reporting it resulted in no resolution. Walls/windows are paper thin and you hear everything outside once city starts waking up. Buses, people yelling, garbage trucks/cans. Breakfast food subpar for for what you pay including coffee. Good news is Starbucks is only 1 1/2 blocks away. Great location but wish the noise wouldn't have kept us up all night.

Great place to stay. Convenient to all major sites in San Fransisco. Didnt like paying for parking, but in the long run it was worth it. Would stay her again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Annie2014 Convenient and comfortable accommodations
Holiday Inn for conference was convenient to shops and restaurants, hotel's staff were friendly and attentive, room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. The business center computers both on the second and fifth floors were not reliable and not always available to connect to. I would definitely consider staying here again for both business and vacation.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Samdeb Comfortable room and clean but lacking in customer service attitude
Front desk staff and procedures are chaotic and lacking in consistency. Bell captains are more interested in angling for a tip than truly helping. Restaurant has poor quality food, mediocre service, and is expensive. Go to a locals place instead. There a lot around.
The exercise room and pool are miniscule and the rooms overlooking the pool suffer from both pool noise and street noise.
Housekeeping staff are terrific and rooms are spotless. Beds are comfortable. So if you need a cheap place to stay and you can get a quiet room, this isn't too bad. But don't expect a charming welcoming staff at the front desk who go out of their way to assure that all goes smoothly for the customer.

Had an added night to original stay, moved a block or two from my original hotel. My stay was a better value with excellent service, some areas dated, but rooms were larger with a very comfortable bed

Perfect location for the price. Our first time in San Fran and the location worked very well for us (tourist). Walking distance to everywhere. If working in financial district, take transportation. All staff was very helpful & cheerful. Did not eat at facility, cannot comment on dining. Room was quiet & comfortable. Pool faces street with shrubs around it, noisy due to traffic, but nice to be outside in sunshine. We requested a small refrigerator, it was provided without delay. We will go back.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Liv3683 Somewhat dirty room
Hair on the walls in the bathroom and pillow smelled like urine. Some of the staff were rude. We stayed at that holiday inn because we thought it had free breakfast but the prices for food and breakfast were outrageous. Almost $6 for a cup of coffee. One nice clerk did suggest a great breakfast place. I would not stay at that location again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JackT76 Somewhat of a good stay
This hotel seriously does need to invest in making the rooms quieter for guests. My room faced the streets during the stay, and between 2-5 am every morning, I was woken up by the street sweeper (sounded like a jet engine), Sirens, People yelling down the streets, construction crew causing racket. The room temperature fluctuated drastically as well, it was either too cold or too hot, even though I had adjusted the thermostat.
Other than that, the room was clean, staff was friendly and somewhat attentive on greetings. I like the fact that the location of the hotel was very close to the wharf. If the management can work on making the rooms less noisy, this place would be great to stay at.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SkycycleX2 Great location
This was about as good of a location as one could find if you're a tourist in San Francisco which we were. We had a nice time and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was too expensive and they have a monopoly on parking because you can't park on the street but other than that I recommend it.

But the food (breakfast we ate 5 times) was off the chart expensive. $51 for two eggs, bacon toast coffee and juice times 2 = too much. Otherwise great place!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Seroga Nice hotel, nice location, but....
Holiday Inn offers EVERYWHERE free WiFi
This hotel also offers Free WiFi... however is unusable...
unreliable, slow, frozen lava moving slow.
I contact the front desk, they transfer me to a 'internet service' place where a very difficult to understand Asian gentlemen try to help me asking me to change a bunch of settings in my lap top...
After spending more than 30 minutes, I give up and told him politely "thank you, everything is ok now"... However 2 laptops, and 3 cel phones that work perfectly fine in my home network and in 100's of other places i have log in.... were unable to function in this location.. even with a 'FULL' reception.
I call again, explain that all the equipment I had were not working, they say 'will reset the modem'..... Result: The same. No improvement.
However if you are here for vacation, the lack of wifi will allow you (or force you) to relax... Don't plan to be here for business....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by angela77 Great value and location
Overall I really enjoyed my stay here. I was in town for a conferene and the location was fantastic and the price was right. Beds were very comfy and front desk staff were fantastic. Also really enjoyed the lobby coffee kiosk and pastries. The only area that could use improvement is in the bar….I was shocked frankly at how disinterested the bartenders were in making drinks or waiting on customers. It was really baffling to all of us. The first night we were there, we had the room to ourselves and there were 10-12 of us sitting at tables. The bartender looked at us, but never came over to assist and there was no one at his bar. One of the girls went up to get a few drinks and he told her, "You better tell them I'm not coming over there, so if they want anything, they need to come up to the bar." He could have made so much money on our group if he'd made even the slightest effort. The next night wasn't much better. It was a different bartender, but she seemed in her own world…one that was also disinterested in pouring drinks. She was very slow. Other than that, we did really enjoy it here.

the hotel was clean and employees all were very helpful and friendly. It is in a great location, central to lots of nice areas. The hotel is a bit old, but well maintained and clean. Free wifi but the signal was extremely slow -- at times it was unusable. Would like to see an upgrade there.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kelbelle970 Adequate for a one night stay.
My main reason for the somewhat harsh review is the lack of availability of food service at this hotel. I arrived from a delayed international flight at 1010pm and was able to check in, the staff kindly upgraded my room to the executive floor, which was lovely. However the insert in the room advertised a lounge being open from 430-1130pm daily. It was closed at 1010pm when I checked in. I was told that the only option for a meal or beverage was Denny's, just across from the hotel. Additionally in the morning, breakfast was advertised as being serves between 7-11am. I went down at 1045am, a little late yes I admit, and was blatantly reminded by 3 different hotel staff that they were closing the dining room. I was rushed through my order

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by angers213 great value and stay
I had read mixed reviews about this location but ultimately chose it based on price. When I arrived in San Fran it was easy to locate. I wound up parking off the property, down the street at anchorage square. Cheaper than the hotel and lots of parking available even on a Friday. Staff was friendly, and the room with one king bed was more than large enough for myself and 5 yr old. There was noise from the street all night long but the only reason I know this is from waking up on my own; it wasnt impossible to fall asleep. The Denny's is located in the 2nd building so we just grabbed breakfast after checking out. Location is great, walking distance to fisherman's wharf, pier 39 and ghiridelli square. I plan to return to the city very soon and I will be staying here again!

Because the Holiday in was being "refreshed" we were told to walk our luggage two blocks away to the Holiday Inn Express. The next morning at 4:45 A.M. the men who were "refreshing" began loading their vehicles with steel beams outside our room with an accompanying loud discussion about the previous night. Our plumbing also went during our stay. A Denny's restaurant was in the lobby which attracted some scary people.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Darrel Somewhat a Jeckyl and Hyde experience.
We reserved a room here at the beginning (two nights) and end (one night) of our California vacation week. The desk staff seemed inattentive and uncaring at our first check in. We were offered an apple in recognition of our Platinum IHG status, but we declined and requested bottled water instead. The clerk said they did not offer bottled water to Platinum members. This was immediately after my wife and I witnessed a desk clerk giving bottled water to a different couple who checked in before us. In spite of signs touting the inn's restaurant and menus, and in spite of internet claims of restaurant availability, the restaurant was closed for renovations. Signs remained up throughout the week, and were even changed daily, suggesting customers eat at the (closed) restaurant.
On our second sign-in at the end of our vacation week, a different desk clerk seemed much more welcoming. We were also upgraded as part of our Platinum status at this second check-in. Overall the inn is convenient, and just okay. I would probably try a different hotel if I were to visit that area again.
