5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Oct 3, 2017
Loved this little hotel. Very clean. Such nice front desk guy and cleaning ladies. Would definitely go back. So convenient to son living in L Seven apartments around the corner!
Being from a small town, I was a little "scared" of the big city. Lol. But not here, wonderful place. Spent 6 nights, will do so again for sure:)
Date of stay: September 2017
Room Tip: 2nd floor, very safe. Locked gate to go up.

The motel is just a few minutes past the Bay Bridge, and is pretty easy to find. They have free - but limited - parking. First come, first serve, but metered street parking is also available as long as you attend to prohibited days/times, or when meter enforcement is "on". We parked on the street, and had no trouble. In another city, this might be about a $40 motel - but not in SF! Everything worked in our room, including fridge and coffee maker (didn't try the microwave). The bathroom held a terrible odor that might have been a spill of a strong chemical? The room looked pretty tired overall, and the bed was overly firm and lumpy. Room windows look inward above the small parking lot (no views). Staff at the front desk were pleasant. Breakfast was very simple, but sufficient with yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, etc.

Room tip: Cheaper than most options in SF

Great place to take the kids, they have a water park, A decade, Rock Climbing, indoors Jump around and more. A little pricey, the food is good but again pricey. Don't go when there a school field trip, it was very crowded. The grandkids loved it and it out a smile on their faces

If the outside doesn't scare you, wait until you walk to your room and then enter it. I can't remember the last time I saw an old school TV in a hotel. Then to see the iron and ironing board hanging prominently in the wall next to the TV. Enough said...

Was happy that there was a fridge and microwave in the room. Rooms are a bit out of date in decor but clean and no pests. Stairs only for room access. Good value for money and fine for comfort.
Traffic can be noisy but the AC units are good and not noisy so you can shut the window.
Great to have free parking even if it is first come first serve there is street parking overnight if you don't get a spot and the continental breakfast is generous.
We drove most places but transit is a bit of a walk. I liked the location.
Free wifi works well.

Small affordable hotel and good if you are travelling by car since there is free parking. Hotel is clean and everything works as expected. Wifi is ok. Ten minutes walk to Market Street but this hotel is not by any means near the sights of SF.

Lot of homeless people right outside the hotel entrance and we didn't feel that we would like to take a walk after dark. Not many restaurants around. Noise of the street traffic is quite loud and I believe it is so in any of the rooms.

Hotel is just what you would expect for the price or maybe even a little more. Overall experience was positive.
