I don't typically write reviews nor do I rely on them but this place is really bad. Staff is disorganized and very rude. Rooms are fine but not exactly nice. Price guided my choice. That being said, these guys are jerks and I don't recommend supporting them.

Location of this hotel is very close to union square. Very safe because front entrance door is always secured. Reception staff were very kind and polite especially Robin and Saed. They did their best to make our accommodations a great experience. We will consider this hotel again when we comeback. Our room was clean , with fridge and microwave. Thank... More

I stayed two times at Layne Hotel during my two week stay in San Fran and Silicon Valley. And I really enjoyed my stay there. The rooms were clean, the service was nice. I was even offered a free upgrade on my room without asking the second time i stayed there. The location is prime, just a 5 min walk... More

My friend and I visited San Francisco to attend a 49ers game and wanted to spend as little money as possible on our living accommodations since we would spending out and about. Looking back, we should have not done this. We purchased a double room, assuming it was a room with two beds as it looked in the pictures. It... More

Excellent hotel with great location. Couldn't have asked for better value for the price. Staff is very friendly and addressed all my needs. Rooms are very clean and hotel is very well maintained. If you are looking for an economically priced hotel in a prime location then I don't think you are going to get anything better than this one.... More

This is one of the worst places to stay ever. There was hair on the bedsheets. The bedsheets themselves had holes in them from being worn out. The legs of the metal bed frame were in old soda cans. I have no idea why. The worst part of it all was that there was no bathroom in the hotel room.... More

This hotel opened my eyes about not wasting money on cheap as cheap is too expensive. I ruined my first day of the trip and also heard bad things from my wife and kid. This hotel is the epitome of zero service, dirty room and the area with plethora of crazy people. Please pay 30% more and stay at a... More

Don't stay here unless you are in a very tight budget. Me and my friend went to this place as part of the cheapest package we could find to stay in San Francisco. We wanted to be in the city and not around the airport and it wasn't a very good experience. I was not upset when we arrived and... More

I really thought this trip would be fun. I am on the bus home unshowered, smelling and dirty and very tired having not slept for 2-3 days as I feared falling asleep on the streets. I am thankful to have gotten a refund but I wish they could've done something while I was in the city, not 3-7 days later.... More
