Super 8 Motel-San Francisco/Fisherman's Wharf Area Informative - Terrible Place to Stay! Stay away!!!! Stay anywhere else!!!
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA -- We had the most horrible experience at the Super 8 Motel-San Franciso/Fisherman's Wharf Area (2440 Lombard Street, San Francisco, CA!!!!! My husband and I brought my 87 year old mother on a trip to San Francisco with us. We started off with no parking spaces remaining at the motel. The manager/desk clerk suggested we park down the street at the Blockbuster after they closed at 10:30. Parking spaces are given on a first come, first serve basis. We arrived at about 4:00 P.M. but all spaces were already full. Inadequate parking! All of the motel rooms are located upstairs on the second and third floors. We were given a room on the third floor. The motel had no elevator and we all climbed up the most unbelievable flight of stairs I have ever seen in my life. This was not near to code. The stairs were so steep and the height of the steps varied. I am not a tall woman but some of the steps were as high as distance between my ankle and knee making it quite a venture just to get up the stairs to our room!!!!! When my mother and I got to the top we felt like we had climbed Mount Everest!!! Just absolutely unbelievable! The ADA (American's With Disabilities Act) would never allow for a place like that to exist without an elevator to accommodate disabled or elderly people. They just haven't had a lawsuit yet!!! The included Continental breakfast was served on a tiny counter in their tiny, tiny lobby. My husband brought us three cups of coffee up that steep, steep staircase! To top it off they even placed an addition hold of fund on my credit card after I had already paid for the room. It took a few days to get that straightened out with my bank. This place does not represent San Francisco and all of the lovely, wonderful places to stay there and at much, much better rates. My suggestion is to never, never stay there! I stay in the Bay Area about once a month and have for the last 20 years. This place is the worst motel I have ever had the displeasure of staying in.
