Good location. We enjoyed our stay. Good access to public transportation. Within walking distance to crooked street, Ghirardelli Square and Fisherman's Wharf. We stayed for four nights in a room with two queen beds. The room was big and comfortable. The room and the bathroom were both clean and housekeeping did a good job too. The staff was professional and... More

The refrigerator had stuff left over from previous occupants. The room had an weird smell. I don't think it was a good value for the price. I would look some place else to stay. We have stay at better hotels in the area. The hotel looked a bit run down. There was a security deposit they slipped in that they... More

Good points : room was big and comfortable Bad points : noise, we heard the street, the people in the room above us, noice in the technical facilities behind the room, breakfeast room was ok but very limited choice. You have to pay for the parking but the amount is acceptable (17$) compared to other places in SF.

Good location, room was clean & tidy, lot of road noise, staff were friendly & courteous, breakfast room could be bigger for the amount of guests. Not happy having to pay for parking when we stayed for 4 days, we think it should be included in costs. Laundry facilities were very good.Overall we enjoy our stay, we were able to... More

Decent two room suite. Parking a little sparse but the hotel helps you work it out. The walls are a little thin and in our case the neighbors were a little rude but the hotel staff was nice and accommodating and the room was clean and nice. Location was ok, especially if you're willing to use public transportation (highly recommend... More

While this may not be the best place in terms of amenities, for a decent price, you get a clean room in a location that's not too far from major attractions. Our room was adequate for our family of 4, beds were comfortable, and heat/AC worked well. On the downside, the front desk attendant was a bit rude (maybe just... More

As we entered the room i wanted to leave. It was so unwelcoming and cold looking. The room was clean but even though I am not fussy I was upset staying here. We had already paid so we stayed for the two nights. The traffic noise was loud. The breakfast was sufficient enough. There was also a laundry which you... More
