Historical Traveler Reviews Inn on Broadway San Francisco
Enjoyed every moment of SF!
My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary in San Francisco this past March and loved every minute of it! The weather was perfect (which doesn't happen very often in SF) and our hotel turned out to be a pleasant surprise! the Broadway manor Inn is relatively economical (why we chose it) but the rooms are in great shape - spotless, microwave/fridges, irons etc. Perfect - plus you can't beat the location! there are tons of restaurants and bars all around - everything is clean and touristy in the neighborhood - walked to all the major sites (crookedest street is a must-see by the way - beautiful i nthe summer time when all the plants are blooming). Great trip that did not break the bank!
My stay at the Broadway Manor Inn was a good relazing stay. The desk clerks were very nice and helpful. The rooms are nice size, has a microwave and refrig that I really liked, and free parking. It is great to come to see the city and not be spending 25 or more on parking. The bus line is just next to the hotel that helped me get places. There is a great old style dinner at this hotel which really made it easy for myself to grab something. Had a great stay.
The 70's show at good price
The location is good, but there is not that many things in immediate walking distance, mainly some bars and a small grocery store. There are however a city bus stop close by, so this will help you guys on a budget. The rooms and furniture are from the 70's but nothing was broken or dirty. A bit thin walls and windows helped to let some noise in from the busy street outside, didn?t bother me at all, but if you are used to complete silence, it might. Staff was generally helpful, except that they lured us into taking an overpriced and slow airport shuttle instead of a regular cab. We lost $30 and had to get up at 4:30 instead of 5:30. Obviously they were seeing some part of that cash. Contact me at 40ounce at d4rkn3ss dot net.
The staff were very helpful and friendly - when my wife and i asked for restaurant recommendations, the front desk person handed me a staff authored guide to the local area restaurants - Cool! Clean rooms - at an affordable price. the iron and board in our room came in handy as did the fridge. unfortunately, SF was a lot like my hometwon vancouver in that it rained our 4 days visiting!
Would definitely return
I stayed at the Broadway Manor Inn for a week in early January and it was the best decision I made. As a British female travelling on my own, I was concerned about safety (and cleanliness!). The are the Broadway Manor Inn was located in felt really safe, reasonably quiet but walking distance from just about anywhere. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly and the rates were great. The room and bathroom were clean and spacious and there was a fridge, microwave, coffemaker and TV. What more can one ask for, especially if you're travelling on a budget? I would definitely recommend it.
Jackhammer-like noise all day
While checking in I was told there was some work being done on the motel and "the men will leave soon." Tired from a long journey and happy about the $49 price I took a room. The noise was incessant and didn't stop until around 6PM. It started again at 8:30AM the next day.
The room was dirty and old and musty. The bed smelled like bilge. The phone was across the room from the bed. There was an empty refrigerator. The only thing that could drown out the noise from outside was the bathroom fan. When I walked out of my room on the second day there were no railings to my second floor balcony. No apologies from the owners. Shame on them. This hotel should have been closed.
The front desk were friendly and helpful. They showed us on the map where to go and where not to go! The rooms were clean with loads of useful things. The hotels restaurant served delicious pancakes and american burgers! The best thing was the free parking and the location.
It's in a safe part of San Francisco and we walked everywhere from there. The cable car and the bus were close by so we used them when we got slack!
Low rates but excellent service! - Jolene
Clean rooms with a microwave, refrigerator and coffee pot. We could have just stayed in our rooms but we got a really great map from the lady working the front desk and she showed us where all the sites were and told us the routes to take for the ones we were walking to avoid the big hills (you can walk to the wharf and the cable car line in minutes). Very pleasant staff and the parking is free, definitely worth trying if you are looking for an economic solution at a nice place!- Jolene
Nice location - great SF stay at a reasonable price!
Recently, about 10 of us (friends) from different areas decided to meet up in San Francisco for a weekend to attend the Fleet Week Air Show (As a side note - the Blue Angels were amazing - the weather is almost alwyas perfect during fleet week). After researching online, we found the Broadway Manor Inn at great rates that everyone could afford. We made the reservations through their website and they were very helpful in putting all of our rooms as near each other as possible. We were close enough to Fisherman's Wharf to walk down to check out the Show (around a 10 minute walk). Some of us even extended our stay until Tuesday and spent another night exploring in SF -- all guests have FREE parking at the hotel. The rooms had microwaves and refrigerators so we were able to keep our leftovers from our outings for late night snacking. Peter D's restaurant is a great place to get breakfast and it is right at the hotel -- Awesome biscuits and gravy!
Clean and Affordable!
We were in SF for Halloween and found the perfect spot -- The Broadway Manor Inn is located pretty close to the Cable Cars and Fisherman's Wharf -- the reason we chose it out of the AAA book was because it offered FREE parking and a microwave/fridge in all rooms. Both definitely helped make our trip more economical (can you say leftovers?) The rooms were clean and well maintained - we'll be back.

... The privilege of business trip is that we can take Elite class instead of crowded economic class. But the Elite class to Seattle on Friday night and Saturday night were all fully booked and we didn't want to take the one on Sunday cause the next day we had to work, we would be totally worn out if we did this. So we decided to take the non-direct flight to San Francisco on Saturday first and then transfer to ...
In the morning the guy next to us at the 76 gas station was hangin out the back of his massive truck selling boxes of 'bananas' to some dodgey lookin folk. Im sure they must of been loaded with something other than bananas! Drive all way from Tracy back to San Fran. There isnt alot of parking down by Fishermans Wharf but we saw other Escape Campervans in a car park when we first picked up the van, we headed for there as it was just around the corner from their ...
... that we went on a double Decker bus and on the bus we went across the Golden Gate bridge and we saw some people walking across the bridge and then we went back.
Also in San Francisco we went to Pier 39 and we saw a sea lion. From here we could also see the island that used to be a prison. It is called Alcatraz.
Then we went back on the subway to the Bay Landing Hotel. After we had three days in America we flew to Paris
... Just happened that he also worked a lifeguard on the Gold Coast 3 years ago.
After miles of the above riding, we were once again on a freeway making our approach to San Francisco where we negotiated the craziness of the SF traffic to find our Hotel. A quick orientation and we were doing a walk up Lombard Street, Google it and check out how steep that is.
So another big day on the road, and another night that promises a great nights sleep. ...
... unique places we stayed on previously on this trip. This is a massive conference hotel, but, hey, it's on rewards points so in a way it's free :-)
We finish the day with dinner at a classic diner, Pinecrest, which is one of those old-school places where they sell breakfast 24 hrs a day along with a masssive range of other classic diner dishes. We need to bulk up as tomorrow is a full day of city walking.
