“Not a great value even for a tight budget.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

The bottom line is this hotel is not on par with any budget hotel I've ever stayed in. The service was poor to non-existent and the room was small and not all that clean. I had the distinct impression that I was I was not welcome in the area near the hotel, and walking to and from the Moscone Center was not all the pleasant either.

I regret not splurging a little more for a nicer hotel near downtown San Francisco. This budge hotel was average at best - you get what you pay for. But I didn't expect the hotel's neighborhood to be that sketchy - it was a culture shock even before I arrived as I was dragging my luggage on the streets nearby heading towards the hotel. I felt unsafe to walk outside the hotel at night. The building was old, and thankfully my room was not too bad. The service was a bit disappointing as they didn't seem to have enough staff; breakfast was included in the price but there was not enough food there - they ran out of food already even though I got downstairs to the breakfast room just a bit late in the morning.
