“Close to all the Bayside amenities but much cheaper!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

We stayed here for two nights and although quite dated and basic, the room was very clean, linen and towels spotless and the proprietor, Ish, was very friendly and could not do enough for us. Parking is also much cheaper than the bigger hotels. Ish even let us leave our car there for an extra day after we checked out to go to Alcatraz. We were away all day and he didn't charge us. This hotel is in a great location and only a 5-10 minute walk to Pier 39, Hard Rock Cafe etc. The hotel is currently being taken over by Travelodge and there will be a complete revamp and update. Would have no hesitation about staying here again. Thanks to Ish's hospitality for making our stay in San Francisco a very enjoyable one.

This hell hole was cheap compared to most hotels in San Francisco, but I'd suggest spending a few more dollars per night, than stay in this flea-pit. The decor was drab. The rooms were tiny and dingy, and the whole place just stunk to high heaven. The ice-machine didn't work... the vending- machine didn't work.... the phone didn't work... Our A/C didn't work, so we had a broken fan which barely cleared the air. We went to the manager to ask for one that actually worked, and his response was, "But the weather is supposed to get cooler tonight." THAT statement says it all about this place. Don't go there.

Stayed here 1 night. Great location. Walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf, Ghiradelli Square, Pier 39. Bathroom newly remodeled w new fixtures and marble tile in shower w high shower head for tall people, granite sink top. Coffee in room and fridge. Oscillating fan. We had a twin and full size bed in the room. There is no closet but an area w hangers for clothes if needed. Clean room,small, but they still need to be updated, otherwise ok for 1 or 2 night stay. TV is old but works, also hairdryer and shampoo.
The front desk were polite, parking is $15.00/day and free WiFi. Much cheaper than $30 to $45 @ high end hotels.
Ice machine didn't work, a little noisy from outside traffic /intersection but i didn't notice noise @ night. Beds ok, a little soft but comfortable
Overall, great price for location

I travel for a living and stay in top hotels. I needed something close to the cruise terminal just to sleep for a few hours. I called the hotel and front desk person told me to book on-line as it was cheaper. Location was awesome! Room is small, but was clean. No bed bugs! Bathroom looked as if it was remodeled recently, and it was very clean. No a/c but did alright with room fan. Curtains need to be replaced. A hotel for a long stay or a couple that needs room.No. A room to sleep a few hours that won't cost a mint and is near the wharf. Yes

Not quite the worst hotel I have ever stayed in, but nearly. The only reasons it rates one star are; Location, within easy walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf area, clean sheets and at least a welcome at reception. Other than that it is pretty dire, should be pulled / closed down! Checked out immediately and found decent rooms at the Columbus Motor Inn just up the road the next night for exactly the same rate. Only if you are really, really, REALLY desperate.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

Stayed 5 nights week of October 2nd. First impression was of a small room with tired carped and no ac. Conveniently located but would not recommend because of the pest control issue. Unacceptable in the 21st century. SF tourism should remove hotel license from such establishments until they do something about it. Tarnishes SF's reputation.

Room was tiny, dark, dingy, dreary & dirty. Unlike website photo (showing bedside lamps & wall pictures), the only lighting was a 1-bulb ceiling fixture (compatible to a bare-bulb) and the only wall "art" were the stains! The dark, tiny bathroom's ceiling was peeling & a small piece was hanging down; bottom of door was smashed/cracked/crushed(?), the shower consisted of a row of tiles (one-tile-high) which was useless in keeping the water from soaking the [somewhat sticky] floor. Don't even want to mention the toilet... The bed linens (including the towels) were threadbare, the mattresses (1 qn??/1 twn) were beyond replacement (noisy & painful springs). The room smelled, no ventilation, noisy.... etc. etc etc. Killed a bug in the bed on 2nd day (don't think it was a bedbug, but didn't matter to me) -- tried to get another place but all was booked for next couple of days. Requested room change 'til than. 2nd room not much better (though 1" larger); this bathroom also had peeling ceiling, plus [mouse-sized] hole & missing tile on bottom of wall by bathroom door; this door was also broken on bottom. Still had the smell, no-ventilation, etc.... Even though we checked for bedbugs 1st night, I actually slept with my clothes on (instead of pj's) as I refused to get under the covers! Couldn't check out soon enough!! I will say that the 2 front-desk staff members were polite, and the housekeeper sympathetic to our situation -- though none of that changes the fact this place is a 'dive' that I wouldn't recommend to anyone .
