This hotel has really poor conditions. Everything looks old and nothing works as expected (tv only works at the morning, a/c is noisy, shower temp cannot be adjusted, internet is like connecting using dial-up). Don't recommend stay here ever.

If you're looking for a hotel in a good location that you can use as a base to just sleep then this is more than fine. The rooms are clean and staff were friendly. As per some other reviews this hotel is best accessed from Powell Street.

Good value. Neighborhood has character. When walking up from Market Street, avoid Taylor and come up either Powell or Mason and then over to the hotel. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and housekeeping staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good, but, I would have liked some variety with the fruit choice...it was only bananas.

We stayed here at the beginning of our trip where we started in San Francisco, the room was small like all the other reviews say, but the beds were very comfortable and spotlessly clean! Came with a safe and fridge too which was great, good central location and some nice places to eat and drink just over the road and... More

I thought it was a little pricey because it looked run-down, but hello, this is SF. I was actually pleasantly surprised. The beds were super comfortable and everything was clean. Don't expect giant rooms though because the building is like 100 years old. There was no where to really stash suitcases because there weren't any dressers and the "closet" was... More

Thank you for staying with us! We apologize for the rooms being small but a lot of buildings are squished around thee area. That is just how the hotel was built. More

The picture looked almost too nice for a Super 8. Guess what... it wasn't. The postage stamp sized room (less than 200 sq ft.) couldn't even accommodate our four pieces of luggage! The $196 per night fee was pure robbery! The front desk clerk sat on his rear-end watching football as we tried to check out. They charged a $100... More

Dear Guest thank you for bringing these issues to my attention. The staff should not be focusing on the TV instead of the guest. Our room sizes are comparable to most smaller hotels in San Francisco. And like them, they vary in shape and size. This is out of our control. We do provide free WIFI, Breakfast, pillow top beds,... More

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights and found it clean and comfortable, we didnt feel unsafe at all but there were quite a few homeless people wondering around late in the evening but they never bothered us. It was in a convenient location and close to the cable cars. I wouldn't hesitate staying there again, the guy... More

Thank you for staying with us, Robyn! We try our best to keep our guests energized with the continental breakfast we provide to explore and start off the day and the cleanliness of their rooms. Yes, usually the homeless people in San Francisco are not a bother. Our employees are always a help to everyone and greet everyone welcomely. Hope... More
