What this motor inn lacks in ambience, it makes up for in its friendly staff, walkability in a lively neighborhood, and bargain price point. Though it’s not much to look at from the outside, its proximity to the Golden Gate Bridge and great bars and eateries makes it a worthy contender for the budget traveler. Rooms and bathrooms are just a step above basic, but they were completely renovated in 2012, so they’re still in decent shape with desks, entertainment units, smart black-and-white furnishings, and perks like mini-fridges, microwaves, and coffeemakers. Free parking, free Wi-Fi, and continental breakfast add to the very good deal.
