No Breakfast included
I first stayed at the Columbus Inn back in 1991! Every time we visit San Francisco (about 6 times) we have stayed here. The location works for us as it is close to public transport and decent restaurants. The rooms are always neat and tidy. They also have free onsite parking which is a huge bonus for us as we always visit as part of a roadtrip around the area.
I wish the rooms had a fridge as standard. You can ask for a fridge at an extra cost.
The Columbus Inn is very clean and comfortable accommodations. The bed is very comfortable. We had a balcony in our room and we enjoyed sitting outside people watching. Great location and very safe. Easy walk to Fisherman's Wharf. No breakfast included but we ate at Rosie's Place which is one block away and it was very good!
I would suggest installing hooks or towel bar to hang towels in restrooms and on the wall by the sink. Maybe a vent in the restroom to help with steam. But other than that the accommodations are great.
You’d be hard pressed to find a better value than Columbus Motor Inn! It’s clean, affordable (by SF standards), free parking and walking distance to Fishermen’s Wharf, Ghirardelli Square and other cool spots!
Other than a very minor key card malfunction, I don’t have any real issues to report.
