Reviewed 23 July 2012

Checking in might be a bit like talking to the Principal's secretary - tip form a single queue and feed to the two reception staff or you will be brow beaten - but the rooms are a good size.
But the best thing is the breakfast. This is no coffee and a Danish breakfast, it is a full- on make-your-own-waffles eat-til-you-waddle breakfast. A great start to the day. It's open 6:30 - 10:30 and I'd advise an early breakfast to ensure you get a table. At 8 it is heaving but at 7 there is plenty of space.
Getting to Fisherman's wharf is easy. Just head all the way down Van Ness till you hit Aquatic Park (way down the bottom) then have a nice stroll along the shoreline till you hit Jefferson and then you can peruse the shops and cafes on your way to the Wharf - chowder is basically good any where.

Room Tip: Don't pay the extra for a bridge view room - it'll be covered in fog while you are there. Th...

Really good location for getting to the Wharf and handily placed for the buses to the town centre. I wouldn't reccomend what we did, walk back from downtown, it is too much off a slog. The Hotel is handily placed the breakfast is fine and the staff friendly and attentive. Rooms are ok and clean.
Take a walk down Union Street a couple of blocks down, but be aware nothing seems to open until 10am, 11am and 12am. There are some mid to upmarket chains and some independent retailers. We are fans of the ubiquitous Starbucks (of which there is one) but found a really good coffeee shop near the end where the stores stop that roasts its' own coffee and serves good pastries and sandwiches. If you have time, instead of heading for the touristy Wharf, turn left at the shoreline instead of right and walk over the hill to the old Army Camp. It is a bit of a steep climb but you will be rewarded with a good bookshop (mainly second hand) and a coffee shop and other niche retailers behind a green space. You will have a clear of the Golden Gate. It is on the route the cyclists take from Fisherman's wharf to the bridge.

We stayed 4 nights for our first visit to San Francisco. We had a room at 10th floor with a fantastic view on the bay and the Golden Gate. We were close of Fisherman's warf (15 min walk).
The circulation is quite heavy on Lombard street (hotel is on the corner of Van Ness and Lombard) and is sometimes noisy even if we were on 10th floor.
Staff was very helpfull to provide infos to help us.
There is only one decent restaurant in front of the hotel (Cafe Lombard), otherwise you have to go to Fisherman's warf if you want to eat.
Rooms are small but decent (we had 2 queen beds for 3 persons) and restroom is even smaller. There is a table and 2 chairs also.
Breakfast goes from 6h30 to 9h30. First morning, we arrived at 9h35 and is was already close. We did not check breakfast time as it is always till 10h00 AM in all the other Comfort Inn, but not here (we had to go to Cafe Lombard in front of the hotel and pay for our breakfast). Other mornings, we were there around 9h00 and at 9h30 exactly, the service remove all the food and services within 5 minutes and we have to leave. You cannot have another coffee or juice, everything is removed and closed.
Parking: there is a small outside parking lot and it cost 26.00$ a day for the car.

Room Tip: Rooms higher will provide a better view on the bay and the Golden Gate and be less noisy.

Just stayed here for 5 nights on a family vacation. Our room didn't have a refrigerator or microwave which is pretty standard in most hotels. Also, we wanted to stay in one night and watch a movie and they don't offer any you can purchase through the tv. On the last day I went downstairs to print boarding passes and they couldn't do that either and acted like I was putting them out for asking. I guess I just expected all hotels would offer that simple service. We did have a view of the Golden Gate but the window was so dirty that we couldn't enjoy it. I guess I would rather pay a little more for a nicer hotel with more conveniences.
