El Capitan hotel is filthy and poorly maintained. The toilet backed up EVERY time we used it. The bed was broken so the mattress sunk to the floor in the middle (not kidding). The window was smashed - and it led to a balcony that was accessible to other room windows - so NO security. The only reason we stayed is because we arrived by chance at the Carnival weekend and there was NOWHERE ELSE with a free room in SF. On the plus side, because we were there at Carnival we had a good view of the parade from the hotel. This hotel really doesn't care about it's customers. It is a disgrace to the area - which is lively and colourful.
