I read the reviews before hand and understood the downfalls, such as Muni and the loud bar downstairs. This was NYE and my husband and I were just looking for a few BASIC things. We wanted to be close to the beach. That we were. Then we wanted a refrigerator because we were staying in the room for New years.... More

We could see the water from the fire escape, that's all the good about this place. There's about 8 parking spots in the back, so trying to find parking in the evening is a nightmare. It's easier to list what was clean: the sink & the bed linen. I'm not exaggerating when I mention that I found boogers on every... More

There was literally no air circulation. No air conditioning or windows to open. Not even a bathroom fan. The Muni stops right in front of the hotel at all hours of the night. The bar right below the rooms is so small that the people at the bar go outside and are loud to very late hours of the night.... More

This is the worst place that I stayed at ever! This place has fallen apart. It's very dirty and located in a dangerous area. The room was terrible, there was no air conditioning and it was like a sauna in the room. Beds were dirty with disgusting stains. The window was broken too. Don't even get me started on the... More

Do not stay at this hotel, old run down badly in need of updating, a fair way out of town about 30-40 minutes on the streetcar, there was a funny smell as you walked in the door window frames had mould all round them. Yes the rooms are big, far as we could see were clean enough and had a... More

The funk was so bad we looked under the bed...found a sock that must have been left behind by the funkiest wino in San Francisco...we left at12:00 midnight. Couldn't stand it no more!!! We tried to stay the night, but the bed was stinking too...we spent 120.00 for a nightmare getaway...stay far away from this place...a haunted house would have... More

Great location to the beach and the muni. Pros: big rooms, free parking. Cons: the trains shake the building and there is a pub next door so patrons can be loud and the walls and windows are very thin. Only 3 blocks from the finish line of bay to breakers. They allow a late check out so I was able... More

If you are just looking for a room to sleep in, then this is it! The "free" parking and proximity to Ocean Beach are the best assets of this motel. Although the room was cleaned to the best of the staff's ability, the room had visible mold residue around the bathroom window, paint chippings, rusted sower head and very worn... More
