All was awesome - very friendly staff from the room cleaners to the front desk to the restaurant/bar. Beds very comfy and plenty of pillows with different firmness - an awesome treat when traveling. Food was delicious. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because the patio by the pool closes at 10:00. I understand the pool closing (which is gated) at 10pm, but there were a few cigarette smokers in our group and being able to hang out on the patio where smoking was aloud was nice.....until 10:00 when we had to either go back to our rooms (where smoking isn't aloud) or hang out on the street.

I didn't stay here but came by a room that my friend was staying at. While the outside looks like it hasn't been updated since the 70's the interior and rooms were relatively modern and had free wifi.

Pretty good rates, nice views from the top floors and quiet environment. It's right next to a cable car and a bus stop which goes to fisherman's wharf, also it's located right next to 00s of cafes and nice little restaurants.

Great location! We were able to walk everywhere or take public transportation so we didn't have to move or park the car in SF. Lots and lots of great restaurants within walking distance, the room had a kick-ass view of the city, it was dead quiet in the hotel and it was very clean. Also, the staff was very friendly and helpful, check-in and out a breeze. Highly recommend.

San Francisco has recently been rated the expensive place to visit. With that in mind, this Holiday Inn location might fit your budget. I used to stay here overnight from time to time, but now that I live in the city, I haven't been back since (about 2yrs now.) I hope they updated some of the furniture and carpet. With that said, it's in the Tenderloin, so it's not the best location in terms of walking (though there are some great bars and restaurants on Polk Street). But it is located in the center, where you can easily go to various tourist spots in the city. And you can take the California cable car nearby to get to Chinatown, Nob Hill, and Embarcadero. The last time I stayed here, I had a corner room. The closet was a stand-alone and the wood smelled kind of old. But the views were fantastic! And the staff is friendly, and the room was clean. I recommend this place for the type of traveler that's on a budget and doesn't want to sacrifice quality.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Golden Gateway for a recent business trip. While the hotel is not in the best area of the city (near the tenderloin), the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are better than your typical Holiday Inn. A good value for the price. If you are open to taking a taxi from the hotel to the better shopping/eating districts then this would be a fine choice; however, if you need to walk from downtown or union square to this hotel, make sure you take a safest route and avoid venturing more than 3 or 4 blocks to the south. Overall, a nice experience.
