The Nob Hill Motor Inn is two blocks from a cable car route, and it's easy to get a clipper card from the Walgreens just around the corner that can be topped up with one day or multi days travel. There's also bus route that stops outside the Walgreens (route 19).

The staff at the motel were really nice and helpful. Upon checking in the girl working reception gave me a map and marked on it where the motel was so it was impossible to get lost.

The motel bed was pretty comfortable, clean, the shower and TV worked fine and there was a fridge, coffee maker and microwave in the room. I already knew the breakfast wasn't going to be appealing (I don't like pastries, especially not for breakfast) but I wasn't expecting the coffee to be so awful (in my opinion) - there was juice though, so no worries. There are plenty of places to eat all around the block and as a single woman traveller I was comfortable walking around the area alone into the early evening. The only thing I didn't like about the motel was no in-room safe.

The other guests appeared to range between polar opposites - nice quiet relaxed people and at the other extreme a couple who had really out of control children (who ran up and down the stairs screaming loudly for about an hour and a half) and another couple who liked to rev their car engine repeatedly in the early hours of the morning when they came and went. The motel staff themselves though were nice and helpful, and the place felt safe. As a light sleeper I should have brought ear plugs.

The free wifi worked really well in my room, and I really appreciate hotels that don't try to charge extra for this. For location and staff helpfulness I'd definitely consider booking a room here again.

Unique Quality: Very easy to get to / from Fisherman's Wharf and Union Square and the view from the cable car as it first tilts over the hill is lovely. The surrounding area was mainly residential or restaurants so it was a nice contrast to the buzz of the tourist areas.
