Although it was a clean hotel,I would not spend another visit in this hotel. Hot water never worked. Located on Lombard street and close to some nice eateries in Pacific Heights and near Chestnut Street. Desk manager was helpful and friendly . Room was hot when we arrived and all windows closed up. It is a very old building and... More

Manager was very nice and accommodating. Furniture needed replacing and some minor maintenance and repair would have made the room better, however the room was clean and all we were needing was a clean place to stay. Would stay there again if in San Francisco.

Reserved a room with mini-fridge and microwave . The bathroom was so moldy it set off my wife's asthma. They gave us a smaller room without the fridge or microwave, charged the same price. Heater was held together with flammable twine.

We stayed in Alpha Inn for two nights whilst in San Francisco. We received a good reception, our room was ok however the shower was pretty much the worst I've ever had in my life. It was one puny little stream, the shower head didn't even reach anyway near my head, i.e. Crap. Here's the problem we had with Alpha... More

In April this year I booked 2 nights accommodation with this hotel - direct on their website. Five days later I emailed to cancel (due to reviews). I didn't hear anything so emailed again. I got a reply asking what dates and replied with those. I emailed twice more asking for confirmation this had been cancelled, no reply. Guessing it... More

This place wasn't too bad from the outside. Check in went smoothly and the manager appeared friendly at first. We got our room key and ventured up to the room. It took a while to manage to open the door but eventually we managed and BAM! The smell hit us. The room stunk like mould and a dirty nappy all... More

My boyfriend and I were on spring break vacation in San Francisco. We weren't too worried about the hotel as much as we were about the prices. We paid a good amount of money for the poor service we received. When we arrived the front desk clerk was yelling at two guests that had previously checked in. They didn't understand... More

This hotel is conveniently located on the western end of Lombard Street but the hotel itself is VERY OLD and needs updating. There is no central air. There was a fan for cool air and a small portable heating fan for heat provided in the room. The room had no ironing board and the hotel could not provide one.

We stayed here 3 nights and we really liked the place. The room is simple but big enough with fridge and a big bathroom. The location is very good- there are many places to eat nearby, gas stations and supermarket. The public bus is just 5 minutes walk and the public transportation is probably the most comfortable way to travel... More
