Stayed here during Pride 2014. Very nice reception welcome. Very courteous staff. Clean comfy room, but not roomy. Being SF, the room was a good size. MUNI literally right outside this property. Ride to the Castro was quick and easy. When checking out, front desk offered to call town for ride to airport.... offered same price as cab! Superior service.

I read through ALL the reviews and decided location was very important so I chose this hotel- ding ding ding-wrong! The glare from a bare light bulb hanging from the ceiling hit simultaneously as the smell assailed us-YUCK! I did not even want to put our bags down but I needed to get my tablet out to find another room... More

My husband and I stayed here for four nights. The room and bathroom were basic, but clean and comfortable. We spent most of our time wandering around the city so this hotel was perfectly located for our needs. There are several diners, a Starbucks, and two fantastic restaurants just steps from the front door. The price might seem high for... More

The only positive thing about this place was its location: It's very close to Powell and Market and Chinatown. The service was appalling. Whoever was supposed to be at the front desk offered no help at all. We went with a 5 months old baby and not only did they not help us open the double doors to fit in... More

Great place to stay in SF. Really close to the main mall and great stores and easy to reach cable cars and buses. I was able to walk around every day and it was really nice. The room was lovely as the whole building. There were only 2 problems : our card key stopped working like 5 times during a... More

Great location and great price and the room was old fashioned but awesome. However our room seemed to be nearest a club as every night we stayed there was thumping bass music playing from 10.30pm - 4pm so had to purchase ear plugs. Also staff obviously hated their job as they were really moody.

What we like are Location of this hotel is close to Union Square. With this affordable price, it bangs for your buck. Room condition for the room at the back of the hotel. Several restaurants, groceries, car rental are near to this hotel. What we don't like are Wi-Fi

Do not even think of staying at this place. We were enticed by the price, but guess what? You get (or do not get) what you pay for!!! It was a dirty room, with ceiling light fixtures missing covers, wallpaper peeling, one light on the nightstand was not even working, wood working around windows crumbling, and a smell of Lysol...
