I chose this hotel based on location and price. I was a bit worried by some negative reviews but overall I found this hotel adequate. The furnishings of the hotel are outdated, the TV an old CRT and the wifi was poor. But the room was quiet and staff pleasant. Breakfast consists of cereal, yogurt, orange juice and some cheap...

This is the second time we have stayed in this hotel. It is very reasonably priced for San Francisco. It is convenient to the downtown area and near where our son lives. The rooms are very small, but adequate. They are clean. The shower worked well. There is a skylight in the bathroom which brings in a lot of light.... More

So if you stay there request to be in the back. The office ladies were nice but a very long... More

Little worried by some of the reviews, but those disappeared when I met the. Smiling face of Leesa, helpful and cheerful. Took me to Roos, which was small, (which I expected), but really clean, which I'd only hoped.free parking and excellent rates (for SF), plus just a few blocks from transit = a great stay. One final word....management needs to... More

At first, I was disappointed to see a small room for the price we payed for it. But it was not bad experience at all. We arrived around midnight there and found that lights were not working in the washroom. The lady at front desk was quick to respond and shifted us to another room. Breakfast is limited. We preferred... More

I was apprehensive about staying here, thinking it would be shabby and a bit rough around the edges, however I was pleasantly surprised. True our room was small but it had everything we needed and was very clean. We were worried about being able to park because it was on a first come basis, we didn't arrive until 7pm and... More

I booked three rooms at four nights for my company & crew. We were spread out on two floors. I entered two of three rooms and found them both to be clean and up to date, with "No funny smells." It's San Francisco, so parking is always tight. Our company cars X2 had covered, on-site parking. Also had a large... More

Facility is a little tired, but clean, comfortable and the staff is great. Lack of elevator is probably the only downside and parking can be tight. Would def stay there again. not too far out the way, and only a $8.00 cab ride to center of town.
