  • Great location in sf, functional, low cost and for San Francisco is a very good rate. Service is fine and the wireless internet is a huge plus.

    This hotel is awful and staff wasn't able to repair in 4 days. The rooms are nasty, bad smelling and the beds are in bad conditions, the elevator needs to be updated.

  • The location was great, hotel was clean and met our needs, the management staff were very accomodating and friendly. The bed was comfortable.

    Not a welcoming place, the room was tiny, and stunk even worse than the lobby, i explained to the woman at the front desk that i had been feeling awful and slept most of the day.

  • Clean, comfortable, affordable, good location, convenient / Downtown and decent price. Friendly staff historical bldg, clean rooms and no newspaper, no free local calls. Great restaurants on the same block mel's and tommy's joynt, no longer our cheap motel of choice.

    Noisy area, grumpy hotel manager and its an old building. Not service oriented, bed too hard and very uncomfortable pillows. Very slow elevator.

  • The city was great and the downstairs lobby had nice decor. The price was good, the staff were very helpful and i noticed one of the bed sheets had some textured stain on.

    Not the best location and the front desk even called a cab company for us to no avail. The towels were very poor quality, the service was horrible, not friendly at all and bathroom was adequate, not too small. The mirror was broken.

  • We liked the location and good value. Just great for the price and friendly staff. The bed was very comfortable and the elevator was interesting.

    The area is a little noisy i think is near a fire station, this hotel is definetly OVERPRICED and front desk service does not exist at all. Interne in the room is very low.

  • Cheap and good location, bus service at the front door. This hotel is adequate and lobby are very attractive. Best bet, park around the corner at the laz parking lot used by amc theatre patrons instead and most of the attractions are within walking distances. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are nothing fancy by any means, lots of stellar restaurants an easy walk away.

    The area is very noisy, the elevator is very old.
