Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.

The Nob Hill Motor Inn had convenient parking. Our family suite was large had ample sleeping arrangements as well as a nice kitchenette. The location was within walking distance to Lombard Street, Ghirardelli Square and Fishermans Wharf - a long walk but very manageable.

Check in was no fuss. We couldn't secure an earlier check in time, but the reception staff held our bags for us. The room was a little dated, but the king size suite I booked was quite big and contained everything you needed. The bed was large and comfortable and the rooms were

It's hard to find an affordable place to stay in SF so I highly recommend Nob Hill Motor Inn. The rooms aren't fancy but they are clean, it's in a great location, we walked to Lombard and it was central to Uber everywhere else. If you drive, there is free parking. The free

Functional motel with friendly, helpful staff and free parking. Fine for 2-nights stay in San Fran during a 2-week’s roadtrip around Cali, but not where husband and I’d stay on a different kind of / city holiday. Nice local bar not far away with more friendly and helpful staff.

I was driving a Ford Fusion and had no problems and while I was there there were big SUV's in there too with no problems either. There is ample width for turning so you can either drive into & back out of the space or you can drive into the central area & back into the space if that's your preference, though you might find it easier to leave the boot accessible while the car's parked so driving in is probably the better option.

"Try to get an upper floor room, which might be quieter"
"Second floor is top floor. The hotel was quiet at night in January but I cannot comment on high season."
"Try to get a room on the highest floor and in the back of the hotel"
"We were on the first floor. The cars and office are at ground level. There is an elevator, but we generally walked up and down the stairs."
"Rooms with outward facing windows less noisy. Inner courtyard is noisy."
