10,0 Wonderful
Pros: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!
Cons:Other than a very minor key card malfunction, I don’t have any real issues to report.
9,1 Wonderful
Pros:Very clean and comfortable, amazing low price and parking included. We will definitely be staying here again!
Cons: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.
