Lobby is updated but remainder of the hotel is clearly an older building. The set up is akin to a Motel style. Most of the rooms overlook an open centre with swimming pool and courtyard.

Elevator when I attended had expired safety certificate/licence displayed - so not sure what that was about.

Our room was modern enough. Flat screen tv, updated bathroom with great water pressure for showers. Clean.

Our hotel room lock however, didn't function very well. So security was of concern. Our did have a view of the bridge which was great at dusk.

Close to the Wharf, tour buses, the trolleys and in walking distance of several restaurants it is a great location. It is across the street from a convenience store.

Restaurant on the main floor however, was not all that great for dinner. Breakfast was fine. Dinner I found was mediocre. The cheescake reminded me of a cheesecake I had in Cuba. It was, not my favourite dish.

Overall, it is a good place to sleep. Good location. Clean. But definitely an older building, and there aren't a lot of "bells and whistles" here.

Not bad. Not all that great either.

It isn't four star but service is amazing. They really went the extra mile delivering extra coffee at 4 am, letting me work out early bc I had to go to work. Fresh fruit and water in lobby. Pool heated to 80. Sauna and nice selection of equipment in very large hotel gym. Comfy bed. Large room and quiet. Free breakfast was nice including eggs, waffles, fruit and bagels. I would stay here again. Close to Russian Hill and local attractions.

The location to the Wharf and the square was key for our experience. All of the staff proved that they were there to help us with any need we had. I would not only recommend this place, I WILL stay there again.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for four nights. Plus points: walking distance to all main attractions and good bus links, basic breakfast included and the staff are very helpful and friendly Negative points: the hotel requires major renovations especially in the lifts and corridors connecting the rooms. For the price we paid we were dissapointed.
