“Looked better on the website”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

I stayed here for a week on one of the ground level units. The rooms are somewhat small and the furnishings Spartan. The carpet, wallpaper, and furniture all looked a bit worn and worse for wear. The elevator is antiquated, which makes it neat to ride on once or twice. Breakfast is not too bad at all. Service at the hotel was competent. Room rates are definitely a bargain, but you get what you pay for. On the whole, the hotel is rather dingy, as is much of the Tenderloin neighbourhood surrounding it, unfortunately.

Room Tip: Ground level units are quite dark

The hotel is located in a strange neighborhood, the rooms are horrible and in my case extremely noisy. The hotel looks very strange. And if you will, like me, studying in San Francisco, there are many other possibilities as well in the same price. Definitely we do not recommend!

Only one good thing, the hotel is in front off The Bourbon & Branch, which is a fantastic bar in San Francisco. But, you need not stay in this hotel to go to the bar, so....

Room Tip: Don't choose this hotel!!!! This is the tip.

The bottom line is this hotel is not on par with any budget hotel I've ever stayed in. The service was poor to non-existent and the room was small and not all that clean. I had the distinct impression that I was I was not welcome in the area near the hotel, and walking to and from the Moscone Center was not all the pleasant either.

I regret not splurging a little more for a nicer hotel near downtown San Francisco. This budge hotel was average at best - you get what you pay for. But I didn't expect the hotel's neighborhood to be that sketchy - it was a culture shock even before I arrived as I was dragging my luggage on the streets nearby heading towards the hotel. I felt unsafe to walk outside the hotel at night. The building was old, and thankfully my room was not too bad. The service was a bit disappointing as they didn't seem to have enough staff; breakfast was included in the price but there was not enough food there - they ran out of food already even though I got downstairs to the breakfast room just a bit late in the morning.
