“A waste of money.”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

For the same price I've stayed at much better hotels. The rooms offered the same as all others (fridge, coffee maker, TV, Internet access, microwave oven) and even though they were not dirty the smell was that of cheap motels (yeah, I've been in those, too). The continental breakfast announced at the lobby (a tiny room) consisted of coffee from a flask (no problem) and rpacked Danish bought in bulk. Parking was a problem. You were advised to arrive before 6pm, or you might have to leave your car in the street or find another parking facility in the area (they provided you with a list of options, how nice of them!). Pity they didn't mention this at the time we made our reservations. The elevator was quite an experience too. We used it just one. Then we preferred the stairs, just in case. The only positive aspect is that when we decided to flee a day earlier they didn't charge that.

Its basic and what you would expect from a Rodeway. But the room is immaculate in cleanliness and includes Cable wifi and microfridge.. Manger was super nice. BEST location to subway and Castro and getting around.... It gets better FREE parking and for $49.00 WOW.....In a city where rooms start at $125.00

Shabby and worn-down motel. Very dirty and smelly wall-to-wall carpet making us want to leave the room early in the morning. Disgusting "breakfast", plastic covered pastries and old, cold coffee. Rude and unfriendly manager, when we wanted to prolong our stay one night he told us the hotel was full booked and charged us a much higher prize than we payed the first night, when we came back later the same day we found the "vacation" sign on and the manager laughing at us. Ok location and free parking.

Room Tip: Don't go there!

It is a very simple hotel, but it is clean, easy to deal with the staff, free wifi, free TV, microwave and refrigerator. My boyfriend and I stayed there one week and we had a great experience, no problem at all.

Staff was friendly and stored our luggage on first and last day (prior to and after checkout times). Don’t bother with breakfast; if you visit during 2012 the Sconeworks next door is delicious! Not the hotel’s fault that the street outside smells of urine and old socks (home to the homeless). I will seek a nicer location next time. Noisy in the early a.m. and problems with electricity and security door. They should invest in upgrading the bedding, specifically the pillows which were very flat. However, very convenient to the bus lines.

Did not use elevator, (being repaired upon arrival). Toilet dispenser broken upon arrival, (2nd day it was fixed), report anything broken in your room to eliminate any charges. Local's said Tenderloin: (a district of a city largely devoted to vice), area was bad, (location of Rodeway Inn).

Bedding was clean, pillows sunk, breakfast was juice, but the price was right. The Civic Center was located nearby for shuttle to Outside lands, which was a plus.
