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.
Very clean and comfortable, amazing low price and parking included. We will definitely be staying here again!
Obviously there's no room service, etc., bur given the price that's not really surprising. Overall I wouldn't really call it a negative.
