“Great location on a budget. Don't expect much”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012

Stayed here 1 night. Great location. Walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf, Ghiradelli Square, Pier 39. Bathroom newly remodeled w new fixtures and marble tile in shower w high shower head for tall people, granite sink top. Coffee in room and fridge. Oscillating fan. We had a twin and full size bed in the room. There is no closet but an area w hangers for clothes if needed. Clean room,small, but they still need to be updated, otherwise ok for 1 or 2 night stay. TV is old but works, also hairdryer and shampoo.
The front desk were polite, parking is $15.00/day and free WiFi. Much cheaper than $30 to $45 @ high end hotels.
Ice machine didn't work, a little noisy from outside traffic /intersection but i didn't notice noise @ night. Beds ok, a little soft but comfortable
Overall, great price for location

I travel for a living and stay in top hotels. I needed something close to the cruise terminal just to sleep for a few hours. I called the hotel and front desk person told me to book on-line as it was cheaper. Location was awesome! Room is small, but was clean. No bed bugs! Bathroom looked as if it was remodeled recently, and it was very clean. No a/c but did alright with room fan. Curtains need to be replaced. A hotel for a long stay or a couple that needs room.No. A room to sleep a few hours that won't cost a mint and is near the wharf. Yes

Not quite the worst hotel I have ever stayed in, but nearly. The only reasons it rates one star are; Location, within easy walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf area, clean sheets and at least a welcome at reception. Other than that it is pretty dire, should be pulled / closed down! Checked out immediately and found decent rooms at the Columbus Motor Inn just up the road the next night for exactly the same rate. Only if you are really, really, REALLY desperate.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

Stayed 5 nights week of October 2nd. First impression was of a small room with tired carped and no ac. Conveniently located but would not recommend because of the pest control issue. Unacceptable in the 21st century. SF tourism should remove hotel license from such establishments until they do something about it. Tarnishes SF's reputation.

Room was tiny, dark, dingy, dreary & dirty. Unlike website photo (showing bedside lamps & wall pictures), the only lighting was a 1-bulb ceiling fixture (compatible to a bare-bulb) and the only wall "art" were the stains! The dark, tiny bathroom's ceiling was peeling & a small piece was hanging down; bottom of door was smashed/cracked/crushed(?), the shower consisted of a row of tiles (one-tile-high) which was useless in keeping the water from soaking the [somewhat sticky] floor. Don't even want to mention the toilet... The bed linens (including the towels) were threadbare, the mattresses (1 qn??/1 twn) were beyond replacement (noisy & painful springs). The room smelled, no ventilation, noisy.... etc. etc etc. Killed a bug in the bed on 2nd day (don't think it was a bedbug, but didn't matter to me) -- tried to get another place but all was booked for next couple of days. Requested room change 'til than. 2nd room not much better (though 1" larger); this bathroom also had peeling ceiling, plus [mouse-sized] hole & missing tile on bottom of wall by bathroom door; this door was also broken on bottom. Still had the smell, no-ventilation, etc.... Even though we checked for bedbugs 1st night, I actually slept with my clothes on (instead of pj's) as I refused to get under the covers! Couldn't check out soon enough!! I will say that the 2 front-desk staff members were polite, and the housekeeper sympathetic to our situation -- though none of that changes the fact this place is a 'dive' that I wouldn't recommend to anyone .

If there is an option that is worse than terrible, I would definitely choose it. The room that I was given had BEG BUGS. When I made a complain, the guy replied to me rudely and just told me to leave the place (at 4am) since there were no other rooms available. I didn't get to sleep. The location is ok since it was near the wharf. Parking is $15. If your budget is between $100-$120 with parking, this place does not worth the value. It's a BIG NO to stay here. Trust me or you will regret.

When we arrived we were put in a tiny room. It was obviously only meant for one person as there was one chair one set of towels but the owner lied. There were no bedside lamps. These had been removed from the walls leaving holes in the plaster. I asked the front desk for a bedside lamp but he said there were none. I insisted that he must try to get a bedside lamp as I didn't want to have an accident bumping into things in the night. He arrived with a huge lamp with a big burn hole in the sahde.
We were moved to a slightly larger room the next day, but this was dirty and shabby. the curatins were hanging off the track. The chair was broken. The door was really dirty. To top it all , we arrived back after a busy day to find that the carpets were sodden. They had had them shampooed whilst we were out and the room smelt of chemicals and the floor was really wet. The manager had the cheek to tell us when we complained abou this that he was running a business and what did we expect? Some business!! I wouldn't recommend this place to an enemy.
