Finding this hotel wasn't difficult at all. It's on one of the main streets, it's about 2-3 blocks away from all the action. There's definitely no parking. The few nights that we were there it was really creepy... it's a very old building so nothing less was expected. One night while we were sleeping we heard the shower turn on... More

Our family had a very pleasant stay for a week. Being close to Union square and affordable is not an easy combination but I think this hotel is as close as we can get to them both. They kindly saw to it that we could have a room with a bigger bed, which made our sleep much comfortable. The only... More

This old style hotel is in a great location for exploring San Fran and shopping. The rooms are very small and there was no airconditioning which meant we had to open the window onto the noisy street. Reception staff were quite distant and on arrival pushed paid tours rather than giving general tourist information. Breakfast was very ordinary and served... More

Moldy shower. The grout was disgusting. Disgusting flooring. Discolored from water damage. Water damage to woodwork beside the shower. Pocket door to bathroom did not latch. Dirty, broken window. A lot of peeling paint in the bathroom. Front desk staff was rude. They never answered the phone.

Just 1.5 blocks off Powell near Union Square, great location and low prices. Our room was top-floor corner, lots of light, not too small with very comfortable queen bed. In a 1920's era building, nicely maintained and furnished, the small bath was expected. Hotel also offers a continental breakfast with fresh fruit, pastries, cereal & beverages, and free WiFi in...

Basic no frills hotel - adequate accommodation. Our room was beside the lift and was noisy from early in the morning until very late at night. We asked to move room but the hotel was full. Location central and only a few minutes walk to union square.

The first positive impression is location: just a few minutes walk from Union Square, Market & Powell street, BART station, cable car, and shopping centers. Hotel room is enough size, bathroom as well, but bathroom equipment is extremely poor. Breakfast is not rich, on the contrary, very modest: just cereal & fruit, croissants, & muffin. No cheese or ham or... More

This hotel is decent its not dirty and it has the basics. It does not have a/c and ther is not a fan in the room, opening the window is your only option to cool it off. The staff was friendly and they do have valet which is nice when parking is not plentiful. If you do valet your car... More

Lovely building, centrally located, clean spacious room and friendly staff. Breakfast could have been improved but was very adequate. One of the nicest and most affordable places I stayed in a 10 day US trip. Thanks

Hotel Beresford is a comfortable hotel in a great location. It's not luxury however it is clean and has comfortable fittings. We arrived after a two flights, the second of which was 12 hours. Checking in was easy and efficient and our bags were quickly delivered to our room. Water pressure was very good in the shower and the two... More
