    When I googled San Fransciso and cheapest motels, this place came up. It was a decision based on budget, but for the money I paid it was completely hopeless. When I stayed at the Days Inn la, I thought I had seen the worlds saddest complimentary breakfast, but no, America's "Best???" Inn truly takes the cake for the worlds worst complimentary breakfast. Coffee (no milk available) and dried packet crossaints no butter, no jam not nothing. Thats it! False advertising is what that was. The whole place was like a weird joke actually. The tap in my room didn't even work. This place was a rip off!

    Easy to find.

    Payed for breakfast, didn't get any. The staff was really unfriendly and not service minded. Not enough of parking, you had to leave your car key in the reception without any guarantees. We found a lot of long hair in our room, the room was not clean at all. Weak non-existent wifi signal. It was a noisy and unpleasent motel.

    Location.

    Mattresses were rather worn (could feel the springs) Blocked toilet took awhile to sort out!!! Advertised as (Breakfast) basically Coffee & doughnuts (or quassant)

    The location was great.

    Room was super small for 4 people. Beds were not comfortable. My family and I were scared of the other people staying at the hotel.

    It was handy to Fishermen's Wharf, and the staff could arrange day-tours and taxis for us.

    Free parking was included and the room was clean and tidy. Many TV channels were available.

    Upon arrival, the staff was not really friendly and helpful. She was more interested in the text messages she was receiving on her cellphone.

    The location was perfect to explore San Francisco by foot. Very close to fisherman's wharf and Lombard Street also. The price of this motel was very attractive also. Having a bus stop very close to the place, was a big plus also! The room was clean.

    There was nothing I really disliked, there was some noise from the road and the a/c unit made some sound, but I am a heavy sleeper, so it wasn't much of a problem.

    Walking distance to Pier 39, main reason we got the hotels for.

    The king size bed was not comfortable at all, I could feel the springs on my back. The walls were very thin and I could hear both sides of the neighbors having a great session. Upstairs I could hear people walking and getting their motion on too. Maybe it was because everyone wanted to start off the 2012 new years with a little bit more of a spark or excitement that night, but wow talk about a hi-def sound system!

    Disappointing facility. Noisy and dirty. Sidewalks and hallways on the premise were filthy. Even the shades were the wrong size for the lamps in my room.
