We choose this motel for its proximity to a Big Bus stop and free parking - originally wanted to stay closer to Union square but the cost of the parking was unbelievable. Overall, it is a solid choice but there are probably better hotels around. It was our first time in SF so we really did not know the area at all. On a couple occasions we decided to walk to the Wharf - seems like a short walk but with all those hills it felt it was so much more. Big Bus was not far away but very unreliable. However the public transportation is quite good so it is not a big deal. Still not what we were hoping for so next time we will probably stay somewhere else.

Were really surprise we got a good deal finding this place, it wasnt fancy but a good place to stay for a night or two. Big bus stopped infront of the hotel, very easy hop in and out. The frontdesk staff was so helpful and very nice. We didnt get a chance to get a dinner around the area since some places are closed at 10pm and we decided to order pizza delivery to our room. Take note 1 hr before the pizza delivered. We will come back again and stay more longer. We learned our lesson plan your trip. Overall we had a blast.

The hotel is well located, but just next to a very busy road and the traffic is very bad in the morning, and the windows feel like non-existant. If you are not used to such a noise, you will not sleep well

"Nice hotel within walking distance of Pier 39, etc"
Great room in downtown San Francisco. Clean and safe. Nice touches by the staff. Coffee and tea and pastries at all times. Great little continental breakfast. Nice pool and hammocks to lay in. Walked to everything we wanted to see, but transportation is also very easy and inexpensive.

Great hotel - located a short Uber ride from Fisherman's Wharf. Plenty of parking. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a problem with our Expedia reservation. Expedia allow us to book two King rooms when only was available. The staff at Cow Hollow Suites called within a few hours of making the reservation to let us know of the problem. They were GREAT - had a perfect solutions that would work for us. Offered us one of their two bedroom suites. We loved our stay in the suite.

The hotel staff, from front desk workers to housekeeping were very pleasant and accommodating. Da Vinci Villa was convenient to public transportation. The breakfast, though mainly carb options was rather good. Room was a decent size and the bed quite comfortable. The only issues were the elevator is a bit slow, however taking the stairs was not terrible being on the 3rd floor (as long as you aren't lugging suitcases). The rooms on the pool side are very noisy. If I would stay again, I would definitely request another room location. Other than that, I would stay here again if the rate was reasonable.

This is not an hotel for someone who wants a full service hotel. But it was perfect for our trip to San Francisco. Only a short walk to the marina where you get great views of the Golden Gate Bridge. We found it within 5-10 mins walk of the bus stop which we used although there is one closer. An added bonus was a sports bar less than two minutes away for late night drinks.

The hotel was easy to locate and close to many attractions. Front desk clerks were friendly and helpful at all times. Breakfast was sufficient and fresh bakery items. Breakfast area was very small. Parking garage was small but we always found an open space. Room was nice size for three people, comfortable beds and pillows and clean. Rates were reasonable for location and I would stay here again.

Fort Mason, a former Army outpost, now hosts festivals and events. And fill up; the Marina has plenty of restaurants and bistros.
