This hotel is on the EDGE of the Tenderloin. My husband and I traveled to and from the hotel at all hours with no problems. I never felt threatened or scared. You will come across homeless people in all areas if the city. That being said, there is a larger than normal population of homeless on this block. When exiting the hotel, turn left and you are immediately in a good area. Very close to Union Square but without the prices of Union Square hotels. The people at the desk were also friendly and accommodating. On the other hand, the rooms were tiny and old. The tub was peeling and the shower head wouldn't stay in place. We were in a corner room and heard the street traffic ALL night. We read the reviews beforehand and were prepared for what we got, knowing most of our time would be spent touring the city. If you're looking for a cheap hotel to simply sleep in (and you're a heavy sleeper), stay here. If you want to spend time in the room and don't mind spending the extra money, stay somewhere else.
