Positive Points: Clean, very,very basic room with very helpful staff and easy, early check in. We stayed in room 108 that was an upgrade to a king size bed. Hilarious, around 2:00 pm, a man in the the adjoining building was completing throat exercises and proceeded to sing the loveliest songs including American the Beautiful. He had a great voice,...

My stay at this hotel consisted of waiting exactly three and a half hours in the lobby trying to check in, The staff at the desk consisted of two young men. One of them was "in training" and appeared to be doing his best. The other was inflexible and unhelpful in the extreme. The room was to be used as... More

Dear guest, we are disappointed to hear about your experience with us. We understand that our staff could have been more accommodating. Most hotels have this policy to ensure that the person who has made the reservation easily gets the room and there is no confusion around this when they are checking in. Another reason is that the person who... More

Quality of rooms and hotel definitely less than expected from photos. Rooms small and old. One old tiny slow elevator. Given last room right next to elevator - very noisey all night. Little sleep. No fridge. room was clean. Not a great part of town. Would not go back

Was a great location and nice staff. Older hotel with an old and small elevator so I used the stairs. Clean and less expensive than other places nearby. Only problem was there was water under the tub so it was squishy to stand in the shower which was weird, but again it's an older hotel. Would stay here again.

Nice and clean, nothing fancy but good enough and the price is right. Bathroom needs improvement, some issues with the bathroom sink clogging up. Close to City Hall. Transportation is handy and there are bus stops across the street. No problem finding restaurants around the hotel, front desk attendants are very helpful. Free WiFi sure helps but top floors signal... More

It was a clean decent place. Close to everything in walking distance. Breakfast included and was good. Easy access in and out of the parking garage. Check in was fast. Staff was very friendly. I would come back and stay here the next time we come to SF.

The hotel is not located in a nice area for a family, many strange figures in the hotel's street. Some of the rooms do not get the wi-fi signal (my family and I had to move to another room that was smaller than the first one in order to have a decent wi-fi connection) and also they did not accepted...

The hotel was ok. On the edge of a bad neighbor hood. The rooms were aged. Located across the road from a community centre so lots of interesting characters hanging around the front door. It was close enough to walk to most areas but still a 20-30min walk.
