I stayed at Hotel Focus SFO for a one night stay. My boyfriend was leaving the states for a 1 year contract job in Baghdad. He booked his flight to connect at SFO and had a layover in SF for 7 hours before flying out. To make the commute easier and for us to spend as much time together as...

Look -I can appreciate a 2 star budget hotel and have stayed at many. I also get that SF hotel prices are generally high due to demand. If the case of Hotel Focus SFO however, what we have is a completely unacceptable and inhospitable scam that's unlikely to please anyone at any price. To begin with, the hotel is perpetually...

Very basic room. Not inviting but it seemed ok clean. Just dark and dreary in hallways. Don't expect a typical bathroom. Small sink outside the bath and toilet. Basic yet tolerable. Unsure how clean the sofa was but just used to hold suitcase. FYI they do not have king size beds in the hotel.

Perfectly clean room, really service minded staff that are ready and willing to help you with anything you may need. Saved my life when my flight got cancelled and I didn't know where to go for the night. Would definitely visit again!
