It's obvious they're trying to make the place better, but it still falls short. Decor is terribly outdated, but the bedspreads and curtains are fairly new. Room and bathroom were very clean, but the sinks and vanity were in very poor cosmetic condition. Advertised wi-fi barely worked - I could get a few emails but no websites would work on iPad or Kindle. Coffee in the morning was instant (really!) with pastries and packaged oatmeal and toast. The location was relatively convenient to visiting Fisherman's Wharf, Ghiradelli Square, but it was still a 20 minute walk to any decent restaurants. The staff was pleasant and the room was a decent size (4th floor, yes there was a view of the GG bridge from the outdoor hallway, but our room had a view of the roof of the neighboring building. Noisy with windows open, but they provided earplugs in the room. Yes, parking was free (a huge plus) but don't try to fit in a larger car. The worst of all were the beds - I could literally feel the springs and had to sleep with a pillow under my hips for support. Sheets are cheep, yet the bathroom towels were not bad. Overall, a really mixed bag. We actually had reservations (and had paid for) two nights, but left to go back home by mid-afternoon...I couldn't handle sleeping another night in that bed.
