I would put this hotel in the category of a motel. I think they just charge the money that they charge as it is in the heart of San Francisco. Other than that a room at this hotel is not worth more than say $70 or $75/night. The lobby is great and the area where this hotel is, is great as well. However that's about it as nothing else beyond the front desk is great about this hotel. We checked in and from the elevator (which took ages to go up from the lobby area to the 5th floor) to the water in the shower was all crappy and a terrible experience.
We get to the room and upon entering it looking like a decent and clean room. However after stepping inside, the first thing I wanted to do was open the windows due to a stale/old smell coming from the room. I realized that the windows are old style and one of them had the lock broken and our window had a emergency stair case right outside it so with the broken lock it would be very easy for someone to come in and either harm us or steal our stuff. I just stuck a pen in the lock area and hoped that no one would do anything bad. The window would not stay open and kept falling down and the other window did not open at all!
The bathroom was super tiny and the shower curtains were put as if they were just thrown around and they kept sticking to the body while taking a shower. Now for the worst part ever - the water from the shower was literally just dripping! There was no pressure whatsoever! I felt like I could have a better shower with the water pressure/flow in the sink!
The cupboard in the room was old style and everytime I walked near it (without even touching it), it would start creaking. I am not sure if the floor was creaking or the cupboard was creaking but it just sounded like it was right out a horror movie. When I actually opened the cupboard, the door kept swinging on its own and making such loud noises as if it hadn't been oiled in a year or whatever.
The WiFi was extremely pathetic. Imagine this, my sprint network was faster than the Wifi in the hotel. I am sure those of you who have used/use Sprint Cell network know how pathetic that it is and now imagine the Wifi in the hotel being even crappier than that!
Luckily we were staying there just for 1 night as our purpose was to get a place to crash after partying in SF and head out back to South bay the next day, where we live.
I would never ever recommend this hotel to anyone ever. For the money we paid for 2 rooms, I feel that we could have just taken a cab and gone back home from SF to San Jose!!!
