“To be avoided”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Don't like being negative but this hotel was a big disappointment.
Rooms very small and cramped and although they are non-smoking guest group together on balconies to smoke and smoke filters into rooms,also very noisy because of this//
T.V very old model with very bad reception//buffet breakfast very limited and not enough seating area,some people had to eat standing//.
Also the car-park is not free....$17.20 per night.....this is not acceptable.

This place is awful, I would not recommend this place to anyone unless you don't mind being kept awake all night by people drinking and smoking and generally making a lot of noise. Although this place is only 20 minutes walk from Union Square you have to walk through one of the most unsafe parts of town meaning that it wasn't all that accessible. There was never anyone in the office, we had to wait 15 to 20 minutes for anyone to help us. The room was not particularly clean, there were burn holes in the sheets and the room smelled horrible. There was no safe in the room and I was reluctant to leave anything in our room. We were originally booked to stay for four nights and only lasted two, when on the second night there was a party going on in the room next door, the people in that room attempted to break through the door between the rooms and we had to put up with the smell of weed wafting into our room all night. Upon informing the owner of this the next day - he simply shrugged shoulders and was not at all interested. For $175 a night this place was an absolute rip off.

The only thing I liked about this hotel was the towels and toiletries in the bathroom and the location was close to mass-transit and in walking distance to local eateries, but the rooms were not clean and the walls were thin. My floors were sticky, my sheets were thin, and the front desk was not helpful when I called to complain about noisy neighbors.

DO NOT BOOK HERE,Ive stayed in some pretty bad places around the world but this really topped it off... We instantly pulled up to find a man inside the hotel bins and people drinking in the parking lot, went inside to check in, no staff for 20 mins then the man in front of us had had his car stolen and a lady had her phone stolen from her room. We decided to laugh it off and check the room out... worst mistake ever, it stank of drugs, the sheets were dirty and the window broken allowing anyone in San Francisco to walk straight into the room with no security at all, after complaining we were moved to another room which was slightly better, but all ready traumatised by the experience we decided there was no way we were staying there, calling the helpful team at booking.com they managed to negotiate with the owner to give us a refund for one night but we still had to pay $105 to not stay there!?? DO NOT BOOK HERE

Room Tip: The best western was a great hotel in an awesome part of town
