This hotel was a little out of the way but an affordable option for a family visiting San Francisco. The website is very misleading. It says "Deluxe 2 Bedroom Suite". When you open the description of the room, it says 2 room. When we got to our room it was a 1 bedroom with a king size bed and a living room area. There was a very small sofa that folded out. We went back to the desk to let them know we had requested the 2 bedroom suite and they told us it was a 2 ROOM suite not bedroom. If we wanted a room with 2 bedrooms it would be 2 suites connected by a door but that would be an extra 120.00 a night. 294 a night wasnt going to work for us so they gave us a "discount" on two roll away beds. 88.00 for 4 nights that had to be paid up front. We had to move the furniture but we made it work. The couch pull out bed was maybe a full not a queen as advertised. The room had a tiny bathroom and when we moved the furniture to make room for the roll away beds it was pretty clear it hadnt been vacuumed under there for quite awhile. There were bits under the cushions on the couches and chairs too.
The first night we requested more towels as there were only 2 in the room (advertised for 4 people) and we were told that they were out of bath towels but we were welcome to use hand towels. Each day we had to go request towels so we could all shower. The room was not cleaned well while we were out.
The Continental Breakfast left much to be desired. You had your choice of bagels, English muffins, pre packaged bear claws or a packet of oatmeal. I had to search for utensils and cups, and no flavored creamer.
Overall, this was a decent place to stay. If there had been 3 of us we would have been much more comfortable but still much cheaper then staying in the city. It was about 20 minutes across the bridge and the neighborhood seemed nice and safe. The pool was large and looked clean it was just too cold do use it on our trip.
