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 The rooms were updated with new carpet and linens, but the TV was outdated (and didn't even work for us) and you could often...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

We chose this hotel because of the location & free parking. The pictures make the rooms look decent. When we got to the hotel, the attendant told us Expedia place our reservation for the wrong amount of people & tried to charge us more. We had pre-paid for the correct amount of guests, even paying additional $ for the suite.... More

I had literately no choice for another hotel. This review score reflects the blatant safety issues on the property. I took some pictures of smashed electrical outlets and burn marks on the outlets. Hotel claims to have renovated in 2012, however, I it just seems they changed the name and did nothing else. All of the literature in the room... More

Being a travel agent from Germany, I stayed in the main building and not in the annex across the street. Staff upon arrival has been very helpful and well the hotel policy says check in time is 3 pm! So no necessity to discuss that. Room and bathroom were clean, what I would rate as most important. The room looked... More

When we chose this hotel, tempted by the low price, we didn't wanted to trust the other opinions... We were positive and thought it were only exceptions. As we arrived, we realised, how truth they unfortunately were! I can confirm all the other opinions. DO NOT CHOOSE THIS "HOTEL"! Please take a look at the picture we uploaded! This hotel... More

I'm writing this to keep everyone up to date that this "hotel" is still bad. I stayed in the other half which was across the street. It was terrible. They advertise that the place is newly renovated but there were still many things in the room that still had "Knights Inn" written on it. Our room literally had a hole... More

We are from the east coast and were traveling to San Fran to attend a wedding. We booked at another hotel and it was a nightmare! Filthy and just awful. Luckily we found City Center!! It isn't the Hyatt, mind you, but it's neat and clean and quaint. With rooms opening into a courtyard, it was very nice. The manager,... More
