Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Comfort Inn by The Bay

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person. This is the most recent visit:
"Budget-Friendly Option in Great Location"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The Comfort Inn by the Bay is a simple, clean, basic hotel with a nice location relatively close to major tourist attractions, most notably Fisherman's Wharf. It is not really easy "walking distance" as advertised, but it is still under a mile away, making it a long walk or a very quick cab ride. This hotel's main selling point is absolutely its location, which accounts for the prices that are a bit higher than most Comfort Inn properties (although they still provide the free hot breakfast and free internet that comes standard with the brand). My honest opinion is that, if a group can spend a bit more, there are better value-for-the-price options out there. However, for the absolute lowest rates at a decent, clean hotel right in the middle of the action, this is your best bet.

It was easy working with Henree to set up our group reservation. We are truly appreciative of all of the help and guidance she gave us. Everyone who stayed there had a great time.

"Great Hotel, Terrible Management"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
There were so many great things about this hotel, but unfortunately all of that was marred by such horrible management! Pros: location, location, location! Couldn't have asked to stay in a better part of San Francisco. We were three blocks West of the famous Lombard windy street and 20 minutes from Fishermans Wharf! Excellent continental breakfast. The breakfast lobby was able to easily host 60-80 people at a time and the kitchen staff had no problem keeping up with the rush. Great selection of food: waffles, English muffins, sausage and egg, yogurt, fruit, cereal, juice and coffee! Nice rooms, with great view and beds. Secure building, doors lock at night and the evening security staff are friendly. Cons: Management: I've never dealt with a manager who is so unwilling to listen to their customer! As I booked my group over the phone, the manager would never guarantee anything. She was difficult, not providing early check in for our bus drivers. As the leader of our group, she did not give me a "view" room and when I made a request for a "view room", she refused. She yelled at me on the phone and told me not to contact her while she was not working; even though it was her front desk receptionist that contacted her because no other "manager" was on duty. Her management skills were embarrassing and unprofessional. I would not stay at this hotel again while this manager is still operating the "Comfort Inn By the Bay". When I called the front desk for a towel, they told me I could not get a towel until 10:00 am the next morning. I told them that this was unacceptable, so they said, "okay you can have a towel if you come down to the front desk to get it yourself".

Response from Management on 23-Feb-2015:
This is a group that was taken cared for from beginning to end. Unfortunately, they were not listening to the explanation on the limitations of a select service hotel. Nobody yelled at Quentin, they were taken care of all the way. Early check-in is not always available or guaranteed as it depends on availability of rooms based on previous night's stay. The hotel does not have 24-hour housekeeping service, as it is a select-service hotel.
