The hotel is not in the best part of town, there are quite a few homeless and crazies about in the area, but the really helpful lady behind the reception gave us a few area to avoid and which roads to take best to get to Union Square. It's also close to Van Ness so you get get around the city quite fast (if the lights are with you!).
I felt secure in this hotel, the doors were under watch from the reception and buzzed in on entry.
The rooms were basic, but very clean and confortable. There was an odd smell unfortunately in our room, a bit like second hand/thrift stores. We got used to it.
There is no breakfast at this place so don't get disappointed, probably the best aspect of this hotel is the central location and free parking, which can be up to $50 for some of the bigger hotels!
The wifi was intermittent on the second floor, but still, it's worth the elevated height away from the road which can be noisy.
Also, as a novelty value, you get and old style key (reminds me of an Alcatraz key) so it's not the most modern hotel.
I'm not saying i wouldn't stay here again, I would just check out some other places first.
