Alpha Inn & Suites is a budget-friendly motel located on busy Lombard Street. They serve coffee in the morning, have free Wi-Fi, and free parking. They also have an outdoor heated pool, which is mostly unheard of in San Francisco. It looked clean and well-maintained. The bathtub in the room even has some jets. The rooms are spacious and clean, but do smell a little musty. The decor looks a little dated, but overall it's has a lot of the basic amenities, and is within walking distance or short drive to a lot must-see destinations like the Presidio, Crissy Fields, the Golden Gate Bridge, as well as the Palace of Fine Arts. Also within walking distance is the Chestnut Street area of the Marina and Union Street of Cow Hollow, where there are many nice restaurants, shops, and boutiques. Public transportation, particularly the bus line 30, located a block away, conveniently stops through Fisherman’s Wharf, North Beach, Chinatown, and Union Square.

Alpha Inn & Suites is a motel located on Lombard Street, which means you can quickly get to the Golden Gate Bridge with your car. The Marina and Crissy Field are easily accessible, the Presidio is minutes away and Cow Hollow dining is within walking distance.
The motel isn’t the prettiest, but it provides good amenities like free parking, free Wi-Fi, a clean outdoor pool and spacious rooms. The staff are very friendly, and there is coffee and juice in the lobby. The property, however, had a musky smell and there was a door boarded up with a plank of wood. Other than this, it’s a well-maintained property.
I’d recommend this place if you’re looking for a property with a space for your car. It’s very easy to get to the North Bay from here, but getting downtown will take a bit longer.
