Stayed here cause it was cheap and on the beach. Location is right across from Ocean Beach. N tram into town takes about 30 minutes. Room was not ready at 4pm check-in time. Appearance is like something out of a gang war film. The outside of the building is decaying. However rooms inside are quite nice, large, good wifi, clean... More

We decided to spent a couple of days in San Francisco for vacation. A friend referred this motel for its price and location. Did not expect too much since this is only 2 stars motel. Free wifi and free parking is what we want. But we also got a nice room that's clean and big enough for 4 of us.... More

Convenient location, very nice staff and very accommodating to our needs, parking available and free. Coffee and pastries in the office in the am. Quiet hotel. Room smells did not bother my allergies. Though I would have preferred a firmer bed, the room was clean and it was a very nice size room with a frig. But I wish they... More

My Dad had multiple medical appointments at the nearby Veteran's hospital. We live three hours away so I got us a room. Attempted to check in early but the room was not ready. Later, after I checked in and got the keys I found there was no elevator and the room was on the second floor. I explained that my... More

If you want to be close to the beach and Golden Gate park this is a good option. The property is old and dated (I've been in bigger bathrooms in Japan). There are some restaurant options nearby and the Muni N line is only two blocks away.

We needed a place near UCSF. Quaint rooms similar to the small villas in Santa Monica. Across the street from the Beach, shuttle service to the hospital. Pleasant staff that are willing to do what needs to be done to make your stay comfortable. We were pleased with our stay. I understand there are renovations planned for the near future.... More

I stayed two nights in April, it's next to the beach and Golden Gate Park. If you like walking its about 5 miles from the Golden Gate Bridge. No real shops or restaurants near to hotel. Old exterior and rooms are dated, clean, fairly quiet at night, nothing special but Ok

Location was great, just a short walk to the beach and park but the exterior and interior was far from good. Both rooms, even though they were non-smoking reeked of cigarettes and marijuana. Beds were pretty comfortable but the blankets and spread were so scratchy and smelly we didn't even use them. If you're someone who plans on spending most... More

Checking out colleges in the area and we were only staying a short time. This one was available and close to where we needed to go. Great location: across Ocean Beach and Golden Gate Park. Limited parking near room but restricted street parking available. Overall hotel is run down and outdated. Had difficult time checking in even though we had... More

Decent hotel for decent price. It worked for a couple day stay. Nice size room. Always found free parking. The breakfast rolls were hard and unediable. The furniture and decor in our room was updated. The room was just barely clean. The walls had lots of marks, mildew in shower. Sheets seemed clean and bed was comfortable.
