First the good. The hotel is a block from the Powell Station so it is easy to get to, walking distance to the Moscone, right in the heart of tourist downtown. And for such a great location, the price is good. But the hotel itself is nothing spectacular. The rooms are small but clean. The plumbing partially updated. An odd arrangement of automatic bathroom light by motion detector (which means of course that you wake up everyone in the room and yourself when trotting to the toilet in the middle of the night...not good). The staff was courteous. As others have noted, the neighborhood is challenged and if you don't like walking over passed out alcoholics on your way to Market Street, this is not the place for you. On the other hand, there are a lot of good cheap neighborhood restaurants located within a block or two. This is the Tenderloin after all.
