We booked 4 nights via Expedia for our honeymoon. During the first night I felt a nip/bite on my stomach. The next day we went for a walk and about 5 hours later my entire body started to itch and red patches appeared on my skin. I waited a while but it got worse and there were clearly bite marks...

Definitely a great hotel for its value. Central location, clean room and comfortable beds, bathroom rather small but enough for a tourist crew. Hotel doesn't have many amenities but again, is perfect for the tourist looking for a safe, comfortable and convenient location to sleep. Friendly staff. We stayed 2 days and it was perfect for our needs.

I had spoken to several managers by phone and each one was very courteous and helpful. I had plans to stay at the Hotel Mark Twain but ended up having some complications with my reservations and the staff was more than helpful and resolved all issues in a very timely manner. Thank you Hotel Mark Twain!!!

The Hotel Mark Twain is, despite being described as in a not so good neighborhood, a great place to stay surrounded by Great places to eat. The staff are all very helpful with places to visit and how to get there.

We stayed for 4 nights recently and really enjoyed our time here. This is certainly a boutique hotel and whilst it may seem a little dated, it is definitely more in a cool and vintage way than anything like shabby. Clean, comfortable and cosy. The staff are friendly and helpful, even moreso than other places we have stayed. A quick... More

The location is very good and the price reasonable, Unfortunately since there is no air conditioning and I didn't want a stuffy room, I needed to open the windows to the common core, as did everybody else. When there are people talking loudly or arguing in the early morning hours that is not good for sleeping. Also when the lady... More

The Hotel is a bit old, it's not great isolated for sounds from the street. The garbage truck reversing into the alley early every morning was a huge downer. The elevator is also way to small. Dough all the critics the reseption personell was nice, the location was nice, the cleaning was nice and the price was ok for San... More

Full disclosure: I booked Hotel Mark Twain on Hotels.com and got an exceptional deal for SF in the summer. Still, I would have been willing to pay a bit more, as I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, upkeep, and service at the hotel. The Room: Cozy, but still plenty of space for two adults. I can say this confidently... More

I don't usually write reviews but felt I needed to this time. I think their bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! Room was small but very clean and the décor was very nice. We were on the street so it was a bit noisy but we are earlier risers anyway. The staff was very professional... More

The staff at the Mark Twain are excellent. They really want you to enjoy your stay and couldn't be more helpful. The hotel has been well maintained and is themed on Mark Twain throughout. The rooms are quiet and comfortable. WiFi connection is good. There are iPads in the lobby for customer use and a small fitness facility. The hotel... More
