“Good location in San Fran”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

Stayed for 4 nights in July 2014. Located10 minutes from Fishermans Wharf and it's plethora of good and not so good bars,shops and restaurants. This place is not pretending or even trying to be boutique or luxury. It is a good place to base yourself for a few days. Room entirely acceptable and big enough for us. Breakfast 'free' buffet helped kickstart the day particularly for jet lagged tourists like we were.

I booked one night on June 19 for my mother-in-law and sister-in-law (my wife and I needed to make a one day side trip). We booked a 1 room suite so that my mother-in-law would have the bedroom and my sister-in-law would have the pull out sofa. When they arrived after 9:00 PM and pulled out the sofa bed, the sheets were dirty with blood stains and dead insects. They called the front desk to have this addressed and the manager on duty came up. He said there was nothing that could be done at that hour. The next day, they complained about the shabby conditions and the manager gave them a "$49 credit" on their bill to address their dissatisfaction. I tried to discuss this with the General Mgr. Mr. Shrestha but he refused to do anything more with the bill. We are now disputing the entire charge with our credit card company.

When I booked this place I thought "its kind of far from downtown" but to my surprise it was a great location. The rooms were clean, staff very helpful, breakfast good. The lady at the desk was extremely helpful when our ride to the airport was late, she made a special call and all was taken care of. The bus station is a couple minutes walk and we were minutes from Fisherman's Wharf. Not far from the hotel were some great restaurants. Would stay again.

Rooms are clean, quiet and quite large. The complementary breakfast was excellent and there were lots of options. The room had a safe but no microwave or fridge. The location of this hotel is excellent. It is only a short drive to many attractions. Walk out the front door and you can walk to the waterfront, Fisherman's Wharf or Russian Hill.

My only complaint is that parking is an extra charge of $26 a night. Also be advised that the elevator does not go to the parking garage so be sure to drop you luggage off at the front door or you will be lugging it up multiple flights of stairs to get to the lobby.

We stayed here last week for three nights. Beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was very good though wish these hotels would have real brown bread. Plenty of room for everyone to sit. The hotel is a ten minute walk downhill to the Fisherman's Wharf and is close to the bus to Chinatown/Union Square. Front desk staff were pleasant and helpful. I would recommend this hotel.

This was the second time I had visited this hotel and once more found it very good - I love the location as it is a quick walk to the water front and within easy reach of a bus stop for both the city buses and also the hop-on-hop-off bus.

The staff as always were great, the breakfast was good and plentiful.

All in all highly recommended

My family and I stayed here last night, we stayed in their Accessible one bedroom suite and it was AMAZING! Very spacious and lives up to it's name and description. Only problem/snag....we came back to the hotel after they lock the two entrance doors and to get in need to be buzzed in. Great idea and makes me feel very safe staying here....also they have a slightly lax guard. I say lax, because either he was just getting back from break as coincidently we were getting to the power-wheelchair accessible door or this hotel doesn't know laws and use common sense to be blunt.
The door with the intercom and I think camera is the door that has stairs leading up to it. The door that has in stairs and is wheelchair accessible gets locked after a certain time and a sign placed on it to go to the other door. Luckily, my wife could walk to the other door to be able to get in and open the door I can use with my walker-transporter. The hotel staff and most especially the "security guard" and I use that loosely was obvious to what was happening.
At any rate, we were able to safely and securely get into the hotel and our room for the night. When checking out this morning, my wife let the front desk know again to hopefully have a few more people report incident to Management.....before a dangerous situation occurs.
But, again overall great location and amenities.

Room Tip: Read description and reviews.
