I stayed here with my husband ONLY because it was near the bay to breakers finish line. We didn't have many options and figured we wouldn't be in the room much at all... How bad can it be? Terrible! I literally made myself sick because of how stressed out I was. The hotel is right next to a dive bar... More

The reservation process was quite easy, although the 48 hour cancellation notice is a bit annoying. We changed our plans as our vacation progressed and there was nothing we could do, so we accepted that. Upon arrival, we found the room to be older, but pretty clean and functional. The beds didn't appear to have bugs and there wasn't mold... More

So on New Year's Eve the manager called me and asked me when I was checking in. I told him what... More

We stayed here for two nights during a recent trip to San Fran because we wanted to stay in an economical motel near to Ocean Beach so that we could go surfing and access the city by tram. Positives -Tram really convenient. Stops outside the motel front door and gets you downtown in 30minutes. - Ocean beach area is pleasant... More

Many of this hotel's reviews are unjustified. The value is good for their modest prices. What do you expect from an economy hotel?? If you want EXCELLENT ratings, then it is simple... pay $300 or $400 at a high class hotel in downtown San Fran.

I was looking for a place to stay that was close to the UCSF hospital. My mother had a stroke and I needed a place to sleep and shower. This hotel was close and when I called and told the manager "Bob" my situation he gave me a decent quote. When I got to my room I was in shock.... More

I was here by force, literally. It felt like god punished us for being so late in reserving a hotel. I wanted to visit the cool places in San Fransico like the zoo, but I wished I did not. While I was in this piece of dump I realized I had to get out of there quick, but since it... More

I offered the lady behind the glass my confirmation #, but she told me to wait for her husband (of indian desent) to check in, I was confused when she gave me a key... More

I've stayed in SF quite a bit, and always like staying at the smaller hotels then anything fancy. Got this room for a few nights in planning for a birthday. Had called around quite a few hotels in the area that were listed as having free parking on site, a major requirement for my plan. This was the only one... More
