La Luna Inn
Travel Blogs from San Francisco
This morning we had a later breakfast for the last whole day in San Francisco. We walked to the Marina District on another stunningly sunny day and chose a cafe for coffee and food. We have really enjoyed the location of this hotel and being able to walk around such an interesting area. On our walk back to the hotel this morning we observed yet …
No sooner had we tucked in the alarm went off. This morning we had to get to the famous Fishermans Wharf area and get on our bus tour.
Down to reception after getting ready Angus got a coffee and we were on our way in a cab ordered. San Francisco is very much a town lived in with many of the building apartment blocks in the city. It is …
We woke early but tired at the "America's Best" in Roseburg (it’s title, not qualification). Angus went over to reception to confirm that the complimentary breakfast was tiny cellophane wrapped Danishes before we showered to go out for breakfast. Elmer’s was our choice this morning and it was a beautiful day.

... cheesecake, with melted marshmallow, and crumbled graham crackers. It didn’t need the two extra huge dollops of cream that it came with, but hey-ho, that’s just how they do things over here. Our server was disappointed in me not finishing it, but I think she might’ve been more disappointed had she had to mop up vomit… Sandy plumped for the Reese's ...
... the Bay Bridge in the distance. Then we went to Sausalito, the prettiest place ever! It's like the Goon docks mixed with a pretty Cornish seaside town, with mountain backdrops and an expensive marina, all drenched in sunshine. We had a beer and watched some football, then had ice cream by the marina, then headed back over the Golden Gate to the Marina district. We went to Tipsy Pig pub, which Sam assures me does the best food, but they ...

Historical Traveler Reviews La Luna Inn San Francisco
Loved the city and the great hotel made it even better
The room was exctly as the picture online. Clean and very comfortable. Staff was vey helpful and pleasant. Laluna is a great place to stay in the city. I will stay again and again at this property.
We had a really great stay at La Luna Inn this spring. The hotel was an excellent value, and had new interiors, clean large rooms, and comfy beds and duvets. As well as a breakfast each morning of juice, coffee, toast and muffins included in the room rate. My only negative comment is that Lombard is a rather noisy and busy street, but if you take earplugs and get a room on the back side it is managable.
The neighborhood is fantastic and convenient with great restaurants and boutiques on Chestnut Street and Union street. And the public transit system is terrific. We didn't have a car, and we didn't need one either, as the bus system is convenient and frequent and really inexpensive. The hotel does have free parking if you do need it.
The highlights of our trip included renting bikes and cycling over the Golden Gate Bridge (with a ferry back from Sausalito), and the excellent tour at Alcatraz (book in advance!). And of course riding the cable cars (buy a day pass).
We took our 10 year old son and had a wonderful visit. San Francisco is such an amazing and lovely city. We had a wonderful time!
Excellent deal- I highly recommend this place!
We just got back from a trip to S.F. and figured we would look for a hotel when we got there. After a few trips to into various hotel offices- we hit on La Luna and loved it! It was a lot LESS than we was expecting to pay (most were around $200 PLUS $35 to park). We stayed Sun- Tuesday and paid $80 a night, with free parking. The room we had was small but I really liked the color scheme and it was very recently re-done- everything looked new. We were in a one bedroom, the two bedrooms looked a lot bigger.
La Luna also offers a continental breakfast: milk, orange and apple juice, hot chocolate, coffee, toast, and the best muffins! The staff was very friendly and accomodating, I would highly recommend this place to my friends and family.
What a find!
It was the night before New Years Eve and we still hadn't booked a hotel in SF. I was surfing around, and the best rate I could find anywhere was $269...I realise that it was NYE, but that was not the price I felt like paying. Found this place ,and thought we'd give it a try.
We couldn't fault it if we tried. The service/reception were very helpful and friendly. We stayed in room 318: a huge California King pillowtop bed, immaculately clean, cute toiletries in the bathroom, modern design and furniture, great location in the Marina, and the room was really big. Obviously it's not the Four Seasons, but if you aren't looking for uber-luxury but are picky about cleanliness, this place is a gem especially for the price. We were pleasantly surpirsed, and will definitely stay again.
Clean, Tidy and Central.
We had a great stay. Staff were helpful and friendly. Our first visit to America and our first Port of call. We found it to be Clean, Tidy and central to Fisherman's Wharf. Accomodation was a great price and even though it is situated on a very busy street, it was not that noisy. We slept well, and that was all that matters when you are only in your room to sleep and shower.
Pretty good stay
If you get a rate under $100.00 then the La Luna is a great bet. The location is good and they have parking which is great for SF. I stayed in a room facing the back and it was very quiet. They do have wireless internet access and my room, which had been recently renovated, was very clean. If the rate is over $100.00 then you might shop around a bit but I definitely give La Luna the "thumbs up".
Loved La Luna Oct 14
We stayed at the La Luna Inn (booked through their sister Hotel the Hotel Stratford). There is some noise from the street, but the AC/heat drowns it out. The rooms are small, but you are only paying about $100/night. Parking is included & so is breakfast. The staff is very friendly & I would highly reccommend this hotel to anyone on a budget. Oh yeah, they just completed a renovation (April I believe). Rooms are very nicely painted, nice new linens, very comfortable beds & clean carpets!
"Lost" our reservation
We are from Alberta, Canada, and had booked the reservation over the phone a month in advance. We got to the hotel and to our dismay they had "lost" our reservation. This is a busy time of year for this area, so we were up a creek without a paddle. There was nothing done to remedy the situation and all that we were given for an apology was "sorry".
I would advise you to get a confirmation by email and call them to make sure your room is reserved. Otherwise, stay away from here.
Complete Rennovation in Progress
I have stayed here many times. I read a few of the other reviews and don't know what some people expect. If you pay for the Four Seasons and don't get I'd be upset also. However, if your looking for a $100 room in a great location which includes parking and continental breakfast this is the place to stay.
In addition it is currently going through a complete rennovation and I'm looking forward to seeing it when its completed. At the front desk they told me that all the rooms will be be completely redone and it should be completed by April, 2006. It will also have a new name, La Luna Hotel. I hope the prices don't go up too much.
