My cousin booked a double room at this hotel. When we arrived we found out that it has one bed and is too tiny to fit another (not sure exactly why they call it double!). We opted for a larger room. I used my credit card for the second room. But after we checked the room it turned out to... More

Too expensive for the service level. It's actually divided in two building at the two sides of the road, one of the two is without lift and there is no personnel during the night (during the day there was only the cleaning people). The buildings are old, keys usually don't work, with no people in the building you've to cross... More

The professional pictures on the website (booking.com) are not real!!. The reception is in a separate building across the street from the real location and no picture of the entrance of the room block is pictured. This because the main door is broken so you have to enter from the (smelly) garage Although the staff is friendly and helpful the... More

Based on reviews I read of this hotel I was expecting the worst. It could use a few improvements but was clean. It is very convenient to the center of the city and we could walk everywhere. The Wifi works only in the lobby, and the keys occasionally don't work. Any problems we had were corrected immediately, like the key... More

We stayed for seven days, as the basis for a holiday in San Francisco, with several trips around the Bay Area. For our purposes, it was the perfect hotel. It was booked via our travel agent, and when I afterwards saw previous Tripadvisor reviews, I was quite concerned. However, I'm really glad we weren't put off by them. It's clearly... More

It is clear that cars are regularly broken into here. One person had their car broken into last night, one tonight. The wireless does not work unless you are in the lobby. The hotel absolutely refuses to allow you to check out early or cancel the reservation once you arrive. DO NOT BOOK HERE.

The wifi didnt work at all. After much arguing with management I was moved across the road to a room with wifi (around 20k/s which still only worked a minority of the time).. My towels had holes in them, my bed had hair in it, there was a cockroach on the carpet and a strange odour in the room. The... More

Do not stay here. It was disgusting. The staff was not helpful. The elevator was SCARY. There was black mold in bathroom. No scald protection on tub or sink. Well worth it to pay more to stay elsewhere. Proximity to area was NOT worth it.

Felt nervous the entire time about leaving the car there due to reviewers saying they had their cars broken into there. The room was cramped, TV small with minimum stations, and the overall room was unappealing. 2/10 would not stay there again

I only stayed at this hotel because of its proximity to AT&T Park and most other hotels had no vacancy. I just stayed one night for the Giants game and that is all I recommend staying. The rooms were updated with new carpet and linens, but the TV was outdated (and didn't even work for us) and you could often... More
