“Central location, decent room”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Conveniently near Union Sq and BART, just before the neighborhood gets sketchy to the west. Decent small room. New bed, desk, TV. Ancient chipped paint and old bathroom. Good desk service. Perfectly serviceable and decent for the price/location. Note it is next to a nightclub. But noise was faint and not bothersome in my room

This is a typical Super-8 hotel so don't expect trendy rooms or sophisticated breakfast - however, this is a decent place to stay in - location is fine on O'Farrel street, whithin a walking distance from Union Square, Powel Street or Market Street and downtown shopping centers. You can walk to the Convention center too (something like 20-30 mins from the hotel). Service is basic, but professional - the whole hotel looks a little bit tired but clean and tidy (and if you don't like it, well you can go to the W instead... and pay 4-time the price for basically, sleeping the same). If you just need a decent bed and a place to take a shower and eat something in the morning while in S.F., this is an excellent value for money. Beware some rooms can be quite noisy - require rooms in the upper levels!

If this is a three star hotel I will kiss your rear end.

I have stayed at 3 to 5 star hotels in San Francisco over the years.

This was sold as a three star but to me it was a clear 2 star place.

Old and run down. Neutral to nice desk service.

Clean room but horrible stairway and hallway.

I would not return at any price.

Dear guest, I apologize for your below average stay with us. Most hotel buildings are quite old and consider historic, however we do try to furnish these rooms with modern comforts as best as we can.

Parking is NOT something there is alot of in San Francisco! So be prepared to pay if you bring a car. Valet was available for $25 a night with access 24 hours. We stayed on the 3rd floor. In general compared to other super 8's I've experienced; the room, bed, tv and bathroom are all better quality and I was pleasantly suprised. Clean and tidy is all I ask for. Complimentary breakfast was complimentary but we never attended so I can't vouch for that. There is a night club next door to the hotel; you will hear thudding from music but should'nt be too bothersome. The cab to the wharf was around $20-$30 and dowtown was approx 10 min walk.

Room Tip: Try to avoid staying too close to the right side of the building; there is a night club next door an...
