“The Bates Motel"”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2010

We stayed at this hotel after having tremendous problems finding accommodation in San Francisco. On a bright note, the brothers that run the place are pleasant and very welcoming. The hotel however is dirty, down trodden, in need of major renovations and majorly overpriced. we didn't feel safe at the hotel and placed things against the door to act a s a barrier. The bathroom had been renovated but the mattresses were so old, they had a "V shape" to them so one kept rolling into the middle all night. The towels were small and paper thin. The rooms smelt dank and dusty. The stair wells were filthy dirty unpainted and smelt of urine. The hotel was unpainted and in some rooms there were sheets as curtains. There was no fridge in our room. We cut our stay short in San Fran because we didn't want to stay here another night. It is unfortunate that such hotels are allowed to operate as such. Apologies for the poor review, but we definitely wouldn't recommend this place.
