I can't call this place a hotel. Definitely unreasonable price even considering the location and San Francisco hotels' high costs. I wonder where the other person took those nice pictures. We felt some bad smell from the hallway. Small room with falling-off wallpapers (could see Styrofoam behind), smelly bed, and old and dirty furnitures greeted us. In the bathroom, there... More

Was in San Francisco during Bay to Breakers weekend. This was the cheapest we could find last minute. After reading some of the old reviews about this place I wasn't too excited to go here. But I think that they really renewed this place and our stay was just perfect. A small but clean room with a large television. We... More

Great value and perfect location! The room has its own bathroom (not shared) and has a fridge and microwave. It's about 3 blocks from the Train Station (BART) which is also where the start of the Trolley Ride is on Market Street and Powell. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. One thing though is that the room is small... More

We waited 45 min & I called hotel front desk 4 times for the shuttle bus, but it didn't arrive. We ended up taking a taxi. In addition, we experienced rude customer service & smelly beds. Free breakfast... More

Very basic. Very expensive for what you get and the staff borders between incompetent and just rude. When we asked about directions they seemed put out. When we asked for a shuttle to the airport we got different answers each time we enquired. Front desk employees...all of them....we rude and stand off ish

I had a very good experience in Gateway INN, compared to it's price, it was really valuable, clean place with very good room service, private rooms with quality restroom, TV, WIFI, Microwave, Refrigerator, comfortable bed. Overall it's really affordable and recommended for all solo travelers and/or quick tripper friends. Again, it was the best of it's price range, and almost... More
