Do not book this place! Easily the worst hotel ever. We stayed for all of 50 minutes, couldn't wait to get out of there! Filthy isn't the word. We booked 3 rooms for our party, 1 was downstairs, right off Lombard Street, felt less than secure! Other two upstairs, rickety old stair case and landing which hadn't been cleaned/swept in... More

Well, we booked this hotel online for 4 nights as we wanted to really experience San Francisco during Pride Weekend and a couple days after...the very first 10 minutes we walked in (btw, no elevators!!) we knew this was a mistake. First off, parking is limited, and first come, first served...and, good luck if you have a larger vehicle in... More

We booked and paid for a room but when we arrived the desk manager told us the room had been rented to someone else. He said he had only two rooms left but would need to split our party of four up and charge us more than double the price we had already paid for each of the two rooms.... More

The unit had a whirlpool tub and all the jets were covered in some brown crusted scum .The jets did not function the stopper to fill the tub did... More

I selected the hotel for its location good experience with Howard Johnson in the past.However the room was not very clean, had stains every where and plumbing was poor.Toilet almost over flowed and TV had a big burn mark at the center of the screen. It was obvious that the place is not well maintained and badly needs renovation. Poor... More

I booked this hotel last minute via a discounted site at an excellent rate. I was looking for something within walking distance to attractions that included parking and this was by far the best deal. We often stay at hostels in private rooms and found this room at an even better rate. I arrived late and the parking lot was... More
