Stayed here for a week while I searched for an apartment in SF. Chose this place because of the lower price and it allows pets.
Good: Location - across the street from Target, short walk to the bus which will take you across the bay, or the Emery-Go-Round (FREE shuttle) to get to Bay St shops, IKEA, etc. Near the freeway but it didn't bother me much with the windows closed. There are grassy areas for your dog. The staff is nice enough, though I can't speak to their response to requests/problems, as I didn't contact them for anything.
Not-so-Good: Room wasn't the cleanest (dusty bathroom, smudges on counters and door) but nothing totally grossed me out. You can do laundry, but as someone mentioned, there are no hangers to line-dry your things/hang your clothes for a longer stay. Towels feel like sandpaper (no fabric softener?). Breakfast offerings were fruit, granola bars, oatmeal, muffins, and coffee/tea - grab-n-go - don't expect a full spread. Grass looks like it hadn't been cut in weeks. And they charge a pet fee - to clean the carpet, they say - but I don't think it does much good, as I suspect my dog got fleas from there.
In short, if you want a higher-end experience, be prepared to pay the higher price for it.
