This is a place where you want to just be for a night. It's like a motel. Very old, outdated but clean. The beds are ok the bathroom is very small and old. The sink is in the room. Again not a luxurious place. Staff very nice and clean. Great location

Pros: Staff we're helpful and friendly albeit lacking in basic manners. Location is amazing. Hotel is safe and clean. Cons: Very old. No aircon. Noisy. Expensive. There's a bus stop right nearby that goes right to the train station, a bit further down is a bus stop for the tour buses. Bonus: amazing cheap pizza place right next door.

Approaching the hotel was the most rewarding experience. In short moments notice the attendant already managed to provide false parking information. Which was okay no questions although i had to run back and forth from the parking twice. Rooms are adequately sized however the sink and restroom are seperate. Tight squeeze for anyone large in the bathroom. Early morning the... More

This is a old hotel in need of lots of attention. It's clean but the furnishings look like someone found them on the curb because the previous owner could not get rid of the stuff in a yard sale! But what should I expect for the cost of the stay? Oh and I didn't think anyone was still using the... More

We searched far and wide for a place that would meet our needs. Great value. Centrally located. Quiet room and comfortable bed. Spacious and thoughtfully appointed bathroom. Friendly and helpful staff. We will return.

Cannot beat the location of this hotel! Centrally located in Union Square and very accessible by foot and public transportation. Took a cab from the airport and it took roughly 25 minutes at nighttime. During our stay we ended up walking everywhere within a 40 minute walk away because the weather was so gorgeous. I was a tad weary about... More

We were apprehensive about booking this hotel but it turned out fine. I would rate it as 3 and a half stars for the stay and 5 for the price. It is situated right across from ACT and the Curran Theater in the "Theater District" of SF. One has to realize that San Francisco neighborhoods change by the block and... More
