This hotel isn't horrible, but it isn't great. My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights over New Years. Now, we figured it would be pretty loud on NYE, but I think the walls must be made of paper, because we could hear full conversations in the room next to ours. We could also hear all the laughing and ridiculousness of all the young ravers staying in the hotel. So that was fun *sarcasm*. Also, request to be moved if you are anywhere near the ice machine. We heard, loud and clear, people getting ice all night long.
The most important thing anyone thinking of staying here needs to know is that the area around the hotel is NOT nice. We walked to and from the BART station on NYE because the front desk staff couldn't be bothered to tell us that there is a huge parking lot right next to the station that you can park in for FREE. They knew we had a car and when we were asking about the safety of the neighborhood on foot, you would think they would have told us about the parking lot, but no. Use this lot and save yourself a really scary 20 minute walk through a not-so-nice neighborhood! Along with this, don't expect a lot of dining choices around the hotel. The only options are Burger King, Taco Bell, Chubby Freeze (really?!) and a Denny's. Also, the hotel provides a very in depth room service food menu in their welcome packet, yet when we could find no where nice to go for dinner in the area and asked about the room service, they said they didn't offer it. What the what?! Stay in the city long enough for dinner or you will be sorely disappointed.
Breakfast is free, but is only offered until 9 am. I always look forward to complimentary breakfast when staying in hotels, but we never made the early cut off time.
Overall, this isn't a horrible hotel and when the price is right, well sometimes that's the deciding factor, but don't expect much from this hotel.
