This is an older motel 1960s that has had some renovations. We booked a room with 2 beds, and it took a couple of room changes to finally get a room with 2 queen beds. Our downstairs room was spacious with a slider that opened to the large heated saline pool and large hydo-spa. The property was well maintained.
The beds were comfortable. There was no closet, but an open shelved area with a coffee pot, and another area for hanging garments. Think California closet set up. There were 2 sinks one outside the toilet and tub area, and another in the tub area. This was very convenient for a family, and really helped us get going in the morning.
I walked a little ways to a CVS pharmacy and there were a couple of restaurants withing walking distance.
We however drove to Super Cuca's Taqueria after reading a review on trip advisor and we were so happy that we did...The Burritos were massive and the food delicious. See my review on trip advisor. Super Cuca's Taqueria: Massive Burritos & More
I can also recommend Fresco on State street for excellent food with a varied menu that has something for everyone.
The hotel is an easy walk to the Mission, and I really enjoyed the walk. So if you are so inclined leave the car behind, and get some exercise.
