Stayed here for 1 night because of the location. From the reviews I read I was honestly worried about staying here and considered changing hotels but for the price and free parking and location we figured it's only 1 night lets chance it. I'm glad we did.
The hotel is nothing fancy but the front desk was helpful and the property is really in a good location. It felt safe because of their cameras around and the front desk is across the elevator. I also liked that you need your room key to call the elevator.
Our room was basic but actually bigger than the room we had at the Handlerly Union Square. First time I've been in a hotel that had a big old tv. Most have flat screens but no big deal as I wasn't there to watch tv. We didn't have a view which would have been nice but for us we don't stay in the room much so it didn't matter. I believe our room had an a/c control but I wasn't sure how to work it so just set it at 70 and turned on the ceiling fan which made the room comfortable.since SFO is normally cool anyway. The location is across from a 7-11 and when you leave the hotel and walk toward the wharf you end up at Boudins Bakery. A short walk will take you to Pier 39 (sea lions) and a walk the other way takes you to Giradelli Square. This was a great central location. They also offer free coffee and hot cocoa in the lobby all day which was a nice added touch.
I'd stay here again if I wanted a hotel near Fishermans wharf.
