I went July 3rd, with my 6yr old son and my girlfriend. We live next to San Francisco and read all the reviews before booking. I have to say that I dont understand any ANY of the negative reviews unless some people are expecting a 5 star Hyatt type of hotel. This hotel is very lovely, charming, historic, well cared for. The staff is attentive. (No we didnt try to get them to carry our bags -(---) people, you dont carry your own bags?) But I would change nothing about this hotel. We did ask fora quieter room if possible and it was facing the back and was very quiet. We went to bed early and slept soundly. And this was on a Friday before the 4th of July! I dont write reviews but feel compelled to. This hotel is exceptional and perfect for anyone looking for a lovely, clean, affordable hotel. And the wonderful old charm is on top of that. The location is incredible also. Yes there are young and old people of all kinds outside on the square (including "homeless") but in Northern California you should be used to it. And I paid no attention to them and so they didnt hassle us. I've stayed in NY, SF, L.A., Paris, London, Mexico - this place is very good. Its difference is that it is an older building. Which is fantastic!!! I cant give this a high enough rating. And it was only $100!!!! Friday night, with a Queen and Twin bed for two adults and a child. Also the parking situation is fine if you can read signs "2hr parking from 9am to 6pm" It is ON the town square, so overnight parking no problem, you ned to have it moved by 11am the next day. And you can then find another 2hr parking nearby. Or all day parking a few blocks away. Parking is plentiful.
