Checking in at 5pm our room was still dirty from the previous renter. We were switched to a new room but had to wait in the hallway for 15 minutes while it was cleaned. The room was tiny to the point where you have to turn sideways to pass the other person. Small tv with the 80s. The entire place... More

I paid 80$ for a room without WiFi in it, with no TV remote control, only the bath worked but no the shower,the door of the bathroom was impossible to close and on top of these the room was extremely cold that I had to ask an extra blanket during the night. Never again.

Not a bad room, basic but does a job, was ridiculously overpriced for the weekend we stayed here, no internet in room, no breakfast and staff were so rude (When they eventually came out of the back room). They gave us no information about surrounding areas and things to do in San Francisco. -waste of money!!

I live in San Francisco and stayed here for a few nights in July 2013. Internet rates were ~$130/night, but I was able to get a (smallish) room with private bath for $80+ tax by asking directly through the hotel. Hotels can be pretty expensive in SF, average rate for a decent place is usually close to $200/night. I used... More

My husband and I stayed at the Tropica June 2013. We wanted this location as it was near family, but I was worried after reading some of the reviews. The reservation was made over the phone and when we arrived the lady behind the counter said they didn't have our reservation and no one by the name of the person... More

While the price was right in a busy section of SFRAN--the Mission----I would not count it as a regular hotel visit. The room was adequate with private bath. Refrigerator in room did not work. Had a hard time getting fresh towels. No room phone and no control of room heat--had to ask manager. One lamp did not work and though... More

It is clear that the only reason a hotel such as this can continue the way it does is due to its location. The Mission is a brilliant place to stay whether you keep it local or explore the whole of SF. Now that I have mentioned this hotel's single redeeming feature, I can happily reveal that this truly is... More

Unlike everyone else I didn't find the staff rude, they were very friendly. But it reeked of detergent so strongly it made me sick and the heat was so high, and the smell overwhelming I had to leave my door open to breath. We left window open but it was in the mission so it was far from quiet. I... More

I booked it on the internetto spend a weekend during a business trip in the Bay. I wanted something cheap (130$/night) for San Francisco standards and I got something cheap. Staff is not properly friendly, and rooms are not comfortable, you have TV though. Bathrooms are shared and some are clean and some not really. It is in the Mission... More
