Room was clean, staff friendly and helpful. Beds were comfortable. Nothing fancy, but a good stay. As to the homeless population in the area, that's a problem in a lot of places in SF (you'll have the same issue at the Hilton down the block). I didn't have any problems during my stay.

This hotel is in the Tenderloin, right next door to a hostel and across the street from a brothel. On the day we arrived, a homeless woman had her bag, clothes, and cardboard box blocking our way to the elevator in the lobby.

Thank You for staying with us. We apologize for the inconveniences. There is actually no brothel across the street. We most definetly do not let any homeless people in our hotel. San Francisco is a big city and full of homeless people. Everywhere you go there will be homeless people. More

the room was very small but clean. Bed comfortable, bathroom functional. inadequate lighting (our room had windows only to an airshaft). Towels very worn.

This is a very old property.... More

This Super 8 was exactly what you might expect for the price, especially during a really busy conference week. The rooms were on the small side, but that has already been covered in the reviews so I knew what to expect. The room was clean and the staff was friendly. I had no issues during the week. My room was... More

This was my 3rd time staying at this hotel. The staff has always been super patient and nice with guests. I have stayed in hotels that are so called 'newer' hotels that are not nearly as clean as this one. The history of San Francisco remains with this building with the beauty of modern cleanliness and amenities. I would recommend... More

we stayed 3 nights and found the hotel to be in an excellent location to use as a base for sightseeing although its not near the wharf we used buses and never found this a problem, the hotel could be done with having a bit of cash spent on it as the place feels a bit run down although the... More
