How to review the Regency Inn can be challenging, as mentioned earlier by Scottish Lassie. It seems that way too many people focus on the homeless people. Sure, you can stay less than one mile away at the Fairmont Hotel, not see any homeless people or drug addicts, but you'll pay about $675.00 per night, instead of maybe $100.00. Parking at the Fairmont is $65.00 with the required tax. So, yes, the homeless may appear unsightly, but they're really all over the place, and they don't really disappear just because you spend a lot more per night.
Similarly, I did check at the Courtyard by Marriott while I was in town, late May 2014, and they were about $250.00 + per night. All of this really needs to be taken into consideration before you start becoming overly concerned with the street people, none of whom ever bothered me, by the way.
Location: use your map, and you'll see that you're pretty much centrally located, equal distant to Fishermans, AT&T Park, Golden Gate Park, and Chinatown. The 31 bus stops right outside the front door, $2.00 / 75 cents Seniors, running east / west, between approximately the Embarcadero and Golden Gate Park. Lots of other public transit all over the place.
Staff: nice to me. They went out of their way to assist with the glitchy computer, and with local directions. Also helped a lot at departure time, as stupid Super Shuttle was way late for my airline connection.
Facility: Older hotel, but recently refurbished, within the constraints of a $100.00 hotel. All very clean and neat, plenty of water, good TV, and all of that. Bed OK, and breakfast was minimal but functional. Juice, coffee, pastry, and off to Golden Gate Park.
Hey - nice people, and they seem to appreciate your business. I'll never afford the Fairmont, would love the Marriott, but for a hundred bucks, hey, I'd head back to Eddy Street, likely via a taxi after sundown, but that would be my only concern.
