Went up to San Francisco over Easter weekend. This was the least expensive reputable place we could find, and it was a great experience. We arrived late at night, and were immediately impressed with the cleanliness of the lobby and friendliness of the staff. We asked for a microwave and fridge in the room, but when we arrived, there was a full kitchenette (oven and all!). The room was a bit old and dated, but not shabby, and it was thoroughly cleaned and restocked every day. The parking was free, which, in San Francisco, is a HUGE plus! Additionally, there was free wi-fi, although the connection was not very high-speed.
The hotel is in a good location. It's maybe two blocks from a bus stop. It's only about four blocks from the "Crookedest Street", but there are STEEP hills, so we opted to drive instead. Someone mentioned stepping over homeless people on the way to and from the hotel, but we came back really late at night several times, and really didn't experience any of that. In addition, we didn't have any problem with noise, but our room was far away from the road.
One thing to keep in mind is that there is tax charged on the room, which was not mentioned when we made our reservations. It was 15% above the quoted rate. We most likely would not have changed our minds about staying had we known, but it would have been good information to have.
Overall, we would definitely recommend the Redwood Inn to any of our friends traveling in the San Francisco area.
