Historical Traveler Reviews Cow Hollow Motor Inn and Suites San Francisco
Awesome in every respect!
The Cow Hollow was excellent in every respect, nice room, very quiet, good location, clean, excellent value, good restaurants in the area, free parking, personable staff and easy access to the bus. The only slight issue we encountered was that when the hotel is full, the parking spaces can fill up. We arrived very late one night and all of the spots were filled, however the desk clerk allowed us to park in front of the lobby as long as we left our car key. Certainly not a big problem when you consider that most hotels in SF charge $15+ per day for parking.
You can't beat the neighborhood
The Cow Hollow Motor Inn is a gem. Not only is it clean and modern, but its just steps away from one of the best neighborhoods in terms of dining, entertainment and safety (I used to live in Cow Hollow, so I can vouch for it). I prefer this place so much more than staying around Union Square with other tourists (and steps away from the hookers and drug addicts of the Tenderloin) as well as national retail chains that can be found in malls across the country. Pick this place for the neighborhood its located in as much as for the accommodations themselves.
Loved Cow Hollow Motor Inn
The location was excellent. The facilities very clean, and staff very friendly. And close to an excellent resturant, Izzy's. I will defin.
stay there again and recommend it to friends and family!
Excellent Value - Great Location!
Stayed here during the first week of October 2003 and really enjoyed it. It is close to the Marina District and Golden Gate Bridge. The hotel was recently remodeled. The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated and some of the higher floor rooms in the rear of the hotel have a view of the Golden Gate Bridge. The covered parking was a huge plus. I parked the car and used public transportation because there is alot of traffic in San Francisco. The bus stop is around the corner and there is a good choice of restaurnats within walking distance. It is a very safe area also. I would stay here again if I return to SF.
Retraced steps of 20 years past in San Francisco at the Cow Hollow Inn. The hotel was indeed as I remembered it, a quality hotel at a very reasonable price. It is very centrally located to shops on Union Street and to Fishermans Wharf. The restaraunts in the area are varied, and food in all was excellent. The lone complaint was the indifferent attitude that approached rudeness by desk clerk at the Cow Hollow. Any questions were met by blank stares and curt replies. With tourism waning throughout North America, it seemed to me they're attitudes required adjustment.
My husband and I along with our 2 teenage children stayed at the Cow Hollow Motor Inn for 2 nights in July 2003 upon the recommendation of this web site and we were very pleased! No pool, but we didn't miss it. No fee for parking which is unheard of in San Fran. The location was perfect. We were able to catch a bus to the warf with ease. We could drive across the bridge as not very far. There was also a Mel's diner across the street for dinner or ice cream. A very nice area. We had a room that was not off of Lombard, which seemed to be a busy street. The rooms were very nice. If I ever had the opportunity to return I would stay here again and would recommend it to friends. The rates seemed rerasonable as well.
Cow Hollow Motor Inn
The Cow Hollow Motor Inn located at 2190 Lombard was a great centrally located place to stay. The room was clean and a good size. I asked for a room in the back and it was very quiet. If you like to walk, it was quite close to the Marina, Presidio, Palace of Fine Arts. It was also within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf. If you would prefer transportation, the bus line was right around the corner. There is an excellent breakfast restaurant, Bay Watch. Very clean, reasonable prices, excellent service and very good food with good sized portions. All in all, a great place to stay.
The secret's out...
Having just seen the review on the Cow Hollow, I guess it will no
longer be a secret. I have been staying there for the past 10-15 years
and have never had a bad experience. The staff are very accommodating
to ones needs. Rooms lack a view, but are clean and nice sized and they
provide ample parking that is FREE. They are located in an area safe
enough to wander late at night. Excellent restaurants, movie theater,
and fun shops are all, literally, around the corner.
A gem on lombard
I have stayed here several times and have always found it comfortable , clean and convenient and well worth its remarkably low rates. Y&ou can fall out of your room into good french, italian and steakhouse restaurants. Chestnut St.,just around the corner has many convenient stores of all kinds.It's near the Golden Gate Bridge, and there are nearby buses to everywhere.
A Jewel of An Accomodation in SF
Cow Hollow Motor Inn is a JEWEL in San Francisco! Affordable, clean and a great location. We have walked to the marina area, Palace of Fine Arts, etc...The location is excellent for those wishing to use bus transportation. We have stayed there four times and have a fifth time coming up in May! Cannot wait.

Well after having to be up at 3.30am for our flight back to San Francisco this morning we were grateful for the early start with the weather they were expecting by Thurs night and over the coming days in NY. Severe snow warnings and blizzards that had already caused major flight disruptions in Boston north of NY and heading our way. They had …
There was still time for one more winery and it was a cracker. The Castello di Amorosa is a faithful reproduction of a 13th century Tuscan castle, complete with moat, chapel and torture chamber! The self-guided tour took us along the battlements, with fine views of the surrounding countryside. Not all the murals were that good - witness the chapel …

This evening we went to fisherman’s wharf, a beautiful
market/shopping street right on the waterfront near all the piers. We had
dinner at a place called ‘Cioppino’s’ and I had a lush prawn linguini with tomato,
basil and romano cheese. I savoured every mouthful! Since leaving camp, and
getting to the west coast, ...
So Mum and I had a few days in San Francisco before she flew back to the UK on Monday, 18 August. We stayed in one of the Westin hotels which was very welcoming after days of motels On our first day we were treated to some more Californian sun, which is unusual for the centre of San Francisco, so we saw the beautiful Yerba Buena gardens and had lunch at a restaurant selling all varieties of high tea. We then got a bus to Golden Gate Bridge which was freezing! ...
... of 3 prisoners who worked for over a year to dig out access to the outside from their cells using stolen spoons - they were last seen going into the cold water between Alcatraz and the mainland and it's presumed they died in the attempt for freedom. We saw the library - where Al Capone worked, and the 3-tiered rows and rows of cells. So small, with just a bed, a basin and toilet, and a couple of very small shelves. The view from the outside areas is lovely........and ...
