San Francisco's Oldest Motel (and best)

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 4, 2009

This very attractive art deco motel was opened on 20 April 1937 in time for the grand opening of the new Golden Gate Bridge. It was San Francisco's first motel. It has been honored by art deco magazines and afficiandoes several times. As for my own personal opinion, this was a great place!! I stayed here with my sister, brother-in-law, niece, her husband and their three kids. We shared two interconnecting areas with three bedrooms, two bathrooms a dining area and a kitchen. The price was downright cheap for the area (expensive for Arizona). On the first day (we were busy getting ready for my nephews wedding) the maid staff even washed our dishes. The owner and his wife put together an exhaustive list of just about anything you could possibly want to know that they give to the guests. If they missed something just ask. The location was great too. Easy walking distance to a tram stop, the Ocean Beach part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, and the zoo. You would almost have to pay me to make me stay somewhere else!

Ocean Beach Art Deco

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 1, 2008

We had a very nice two-night stay at this old but modernized hotel in Outer Sunset just a couple blocks from Ocean Beach. We were a couple with a baby, and though we'd booked a regular room with queen bed, we were generously given a free upgrade to a larger room with a queen and an extra bed. Needless to say, we were happy about that, and the extra space was helpful.

The rooms are basic but comfortable -- not huge, but good enough for us. Our room had the usual motel amenities (fridge, microwave, TV, coffeemaker) plus free wireless internet. The bathroom had a standing shower only, no tub. The room was well insulated (important in the foggy and damp Sunset) and the heat worked great (thank goodness, because we happened to catch SF in its thus-far-coldest days of winter).

Of course, you're in the outskirts of SF, so if you're looking to be in the center of the action, this isn't your best bet. However, if you want a quiet stay near the beach, it's great, and it's close to the N-Judah Muni line...which reminds me: You can hear the Muni trains go by, so if you're very sensitive to that kind of noise, then you may want to reconsider staying here, or bring earplugs.
