All round nice hotel, if somewhat dated. We stayed downstairs on level 2, which was very noisy until about 2am as it is street level, and could hear every person, siren and vehicle driving past (no double glazing). Quick pros and cons: Pros: Clean room, comfortable bed, polite and helpful staff. Cons: Noisy dated rooms, poor wi-fi (even in the... More

I liked the free wine hour in the afternoon! This is a happy hour, it seems to continue endlessly :-) (don't think I am an alcoholic...) It's a well located hotel. Friendly employees. Not tho big but a nice place to stay.

We stayed here in June 2014 on a trip from Brisbane along the West Coast USA and Canada. Clean, comfortable, well located and overall good value for money. Breakfast was uninspiring, but you get what you pay for. Older property and would recommend if you are trying to see SF on a budget.

Pros: 1) Close to everything. 2) Attractive lobby Cons: 1) They tell you there's WIFI. There definitely is not. They tell every guest "there must be something wrong with your device", yet 50 people are experience the same issue. I do not appreciate a bait and switch routine with WIFI. Don't mislead customers. 2) Dated in-room furnishings 3) Dirty bathroom... More

We spent 3 nights here and were satisfied. It's an older building, but it's well kept. It was much more affordable than many other hotels in SF. The location isn't bad. You are within walking distance to many sites, but make sure you're in shape if you plan on walking. The hills can be rough. The breakfast buffet was average,... More

This hotel was a great hotel in the 70's but has not been renovated since then. The rooms were well used and so was the interior and the beds also. It was well maintained but old, so old that some of the furniture's were broken. I did't know that so old tv's still worked 😲 Imagine the carpets, I think... More

I booked a Saturday night which cost around $199 and it is probably the worst sleep I have ever had in a hotel but I will come back to that. When I first arrived I felt like I had entered an old peoples home and like many of the comments have said there was a certain "musty" smell that was... More

For the first time in my online-review-career, I'm going to make a point of the cleaning. The place feels over-the-hill. Best: Central, close to a number of great restaurants, five-ten minutes walk to downtown. Accomodating staff Worst: A block away from junkie-town, breakfast, cleanliness.

The room was fine. There was no view and only one elevator for 8 floors. Luckily I was only one floor below the lobby so I could take the stairs..The area to the west of it was not that good The wi-fi only worked in the lobby and not that well.

Rooms were great, nice and clean. In a great location. Really close to union square. They also provide wine, cheese and crackers in the afternoon which was great. Only problem was the breakfast. The designated area was in the foyer eating over coffee tables with not enough seats for all the guests. The selection was some cakes and fruit. Not... More
