What can I say? Nasty funk in the bathroom, walls spotted with grime and a carpet you wouldn't dare walk around on in your bare feet. The rooms are spacious, but that just leaves more room for the dirt.
The paint on the bathroom walls is literally bubbling with rot. Not just a spot, but the entire wood trim around the door is blistering with rot. The light fixtures are caked in greasy dust. The towels are so thin it's hard to get dry.
The carpet is disgusting, just disgusting. It's so dirty I wouldn't put anything but my shoes down on it.
The windowsills are streaked with black grime. The telephone faceplate was sticky. There was dust and dirt on every inch of the floor boards. The walls had food splotches and who knows what else on them.
Our favorite safety features? The smoke detector sitting open without a battery in it - and there's a fireplace in the room! Or maybe that there's no carbon monoxide detector, which is against the law. Who could be worried about those things when the fireplace was full up with ashes?
The location would be nice if you didn't have to listen to buses idling outside your window ALL the time. It's a major turn around point for MUNI, which means they sit and wait 10 minutes before heading back downtown. The grounds are poorly kept and the swimming pool, which has algae and grime, is closed. Because, really, who wants to swim in August?
Skip it. This is not a good value or a nice place to stay.
