Overnight and found this place via web. Actually started at the other end of this mini-strip of motels and rejected that place as too scary. This one looked okay from the outside. But still, talking with the clerk thru a bullet proof window and one of those bank sliding drawers should tell you something about the neighborhood. Room itself was... More

I have never written a review of a motel before. This is completely honest. Go to the Starlite Motel a block and a half away. Great value, great rooms. Three hundred dollars a week as of this date. This place has no refrigerators, no microwaves, and towels that would scrape the skin of elephants. They charge 65.00 a night. The... More

Well here we go again. Mr. Adam was told when he registered that we do not have refrigerator or microwave in the room. But he said that he wants to cook for himself in room, on which I said we do no allow cooking in room. Besides he wanted a room for $40.00 a night including tax which we could... More

We chose the Crown Lodge as we would arrive into San Francisco late in the night. So this place is a little out of town. However, the hotel is good and reasonably priced. The location might be one not to stay out to late at night or with family too! There are good eateries nearby. It is quite some distance... More

After checking in and seeing that the room was extremely dirty we talked to the manager which told us that the room wasn't dirty. We insisted that it was and for him to go check it, he told us to go home. Not only was the room dirty but the management was very rude. Would not recommend it. It is... More

Well, I booked for an impromptu trip to Northern California, and arrived for a 9 PM check in with my Expedia print out in hand. Simple I thought. The manager scoffed "There is no registration for you". He appeared puzzled to see the confirmation number I had in hand, staring first at it for what seemed like 5 minutes and... More

We stayed 1 night, neighborhood was very bad. We saw 1 patron get robbed when going to the vending machines. The ice machine cost $.25 cents and it was dirty and stinky. We heard arguing and police sirens all night. Once the sun goes downs it's safer to stay inside. Horrible place to stay we will never go there again.... More
