I just checked in to this hotel and have had to kill 2 cockroaches in my room in the hour I've been here. That's all you need to know about this place. Stay at your own risk if you don't like to deal with cockroaches.

Hotel does not provide any parking but this being San Francisco, there are parking lots all around the area. Rates run from $20-30 a night and some lots have different in and out criteria.
