“Basic with good details”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

This is a good option to a fast stayed , in san francisco, is near a frishmans warf, the price is very good, internet works well, breakfast regular include, rooms basic and clean.But a must important detail of this hotel is the price of the park, I PAYED us $ 14,00, in SF is very cheap, many others hotels with a bad locations three price of the park was do 44,00.
Good option to a few days, with small budget and using a car.

I know there are reviews about how terrible this place's breakfast is. I am not sure what those people are talking about. Maybe it was bad in the past, and the hotel changed it. They had toast, cereal, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, muffins, juice, coffee and tea. That's pretty good for a free hotel breakfast.

The location is great. You can walk to Fisherman's Wharf. There's also a bus about a block away that takes you to Pier 39. Also, there are hop-on-hop-off bus stops several blocks away. The price is very good for the location.

Only negative of the property is that the walls are a bit thin. If you don't care about that, you should be fine.

Room Tip: There's construction going on at the hotel. Request a room on the side away from the constructi...

Shampoo was free samples that you couldn't open unless you had a scissor or knife. Bed sheets stayed dirty, after 4 nights there. Continental breakfast got old real fast.Close to Fishermans Warf, and important city busses. Nice restaurants around and a laudry mat next door.

Room Tip: Cheapest room in San Francisco, don't expect much.

Great Location!!! We were able to walk to the Embarcadero in a matter of minutes. Very large and comfortable clean room. Everything was pleasing, down to the reception area. The staff was friendly and always ready to help. He gave us a map and pointed out lacation that are of interest in the area.

Enjoyed our stay. Clean and comfortable. They did change our room after checking in as my husband needed a ground level room. Stayed 2 nights. Appreciated the convenience of the location...to the wharf, to shopping and tourist attractions,as that is what we were in SF for this time. Came in about 1pm from activities in the morning and the room was not yet made up. The maid was late cleaning and preparing the room for the next day..However, all was well when completed. The bedside clock did not work and the toiletries weren't wonderful, but were useable, but those are minor inconveniences. Breakfast was ok, but nothing special. Just glad to have breakfast and not have to go off looking for a place to eat. Appreciated that
