I was happy to get a room at one of the most inexpensive hotels near UCSF. Upon arrival, I was disappointed. First, you have to park on the street - we did find a spot a 1/2 block away. Next, no elevator. We had to walk up 2 flights of stairs to our room. Then, the room. Well, it was quite small to say the least. The bed took up pretty much the whole room. The bathroom was also interesting. The shower and toilet were the only things in there. The sink was in the room by the bed. It all would have been fine except for it was sooo hot, it was winter time and it was hot. No air conditioning, no ceiling fan. I asked for an inside room because I have read the complaints about the noise. There was a small window, but it didn't help and we could still hear the noise from the restaurant below. I also wasn't thrilled with the desk clerk on check in. He kept cussing at his computer because the rate he was trying to charge was more that what was in the confirmation email they sent. Note: be sure to bring that email to avoid getting overcharged.
