Checked into this hotel early morning after a long rail journey from San Diego. Opened the door to a ground floor rom, to a really bad fusty odour. Further inspection of the room it was filthy. Soiled sheets with hair inside the bed and pillowcases. An old blanket type cover that was filthy and smelt of body odour. The carpet... More

Well located, clean, not fancy and priced fairly. I was able to check in early. Helpful for a novice tourist( I am not a novice about San Francisco). I would recommend this hotel to all travelers. I had twin beds, and these beds were clean and comfortable

This is an older hotel and the tariff reflects this for the area. No air con and the heating was off as August is summer. A Very Cold Summer !!!! so my room was cold. I did however have a wonderful new double bed with extra blankets and fluffy pillows. so all was well. Toiletries and towels in ample supply... More

I spent 3 nights at this hotel last week. I had looked at the reviews before booking and overall they were good. Unless you have no other choice, DO NOT book this hotel. Why? Here are the reasons why: The hotel needs a major reno, I mean MAJOR. It is very dark and old. The room was tiny but ok... More

If you're traveling to San Francisco and need a pleasant hotel within easy distance of key attractions, then this is the place for you. It was clean and relatively quiet with old fashioned good service. Rooms are small but charming. Ours had a twin and double bed combination with just enough walk-around room to not feel totally cramped. There was... More

We've been staying here for about 10 years. The location couldn't be better for SF only a few blocks from Union Square. The hotel offers valet parking at a reasonable price around $30. The rooms are nothing fancy and are on the small size but that's all you need for a city trip to catch some zzs. They've been working... More

Super cute hotel, close to Union square! Smoking or non smoking rooms. Only one thing...if you're staying longer and have some clothes you wish to hang - there's no wardrobe (at least in the room we stayed in) :) other than that - would recommend for sure! Great location!

Reasonably centrally located in SFO, and the staff were pleasant and helpful. An older hotel with a comfortable bed and a hot shower. A basic breakfast was included, fine for when you are on holiday. Would stay there again, though ask for a room away from the lift.

Good location, and after lots of research, this was the best deal in the area. Very easy to get Bart from airport, followed by a short walk (uphill, of course - it is San Francisco!) The room was very small with twin beds. The beds were very soft and the decor needed updating. The bathroom was very small; the floor... More
