      Nice staff, good location, good deal for money

      The room was old, but weighed against the good, I would stay there again,

    • Single
      6.6

      Many of the so-called amenities were unavailable or broken.

    • Group of friends
      5.0

      Well, at least there were no bugs.

      It was nothing like the ads.There were no pools,coffee/tea maker, when i checked in i ended up paying more than i booked it for (even w/ taxes), and i would strongly advise against using the deathtrap elevator.

    • Couple

      Dirty room (old occupants towel hanging over the door, trampled grapes on the floor, sark hairs in bed). Horrible neighborhood (homeless people & junkies).

    • Family with children

      The gentleman tended to many of the guest needs promptly. The location was perfect for me as my husband had dialysis on Webster Street. The area is a bit uncertain at night. We even had homeless walking down halls looking to get high. We were there only one night and I took my George Foreman Grill and my waffle maker. Less in and out and the only other option is pizza delivery (up the street & It's GOOD). There is very little parking; but they don't charge for parking as did every-other place did. If you are only there to sleep-perfect.

      Towel & Pillow stingy. Rooms need upgrades. There were obvious wall and door damage. Ice Machine does not work and I had to beg for ice which was only a smal chunk. Safeway @ Webster & Geary a must stop before retiring for the night.

    • Family with children

      Parking space

      No wifi, not clean, no breakfast, environment is not so safe.

    • Couple
      5.0

      It was the cheapest hotel and only 3 miles from the fisherman's wharf.

      Bad part of town. Very difficult to sleep, lots of sirens and city noises, walls are paper thin. They cleaned my room with the do not disturb sign and mistakenly took my pillow case. The room was not very clean, there was a marijuana bud in the plastic cup in the bathroom when we arrived. You get what you pay for.

    • Single
      5.4

      the price was definitely right, and easy free parking. Just be careful at night!

      location is kinda iffy, and for some reason they seem to be very stingy with the washcloths. not sure why.

    • Group of friends
      3.2

      The Hotel location wasn't the best. It's in a very bad spot in town and is know for being quite dangerous.

    • Couple
      7.4

      It was very conveniently located in heart of city and at the transportation hub.

      Neighbourhood is to noisy and inconvenient during late hours

    • Group of friends

      When we arrived at 2 P.M. on Saturday, May 14, the lady working was smoking behind the counter when we entered, even though the sign said, "Thank you for not smoking!" We got there before check-in so we left our bags and returned about 5 P.M. She was checking in a couple and that took about 1/2 hour. During that time, she asked everyone in the lobby to help out with the 2 year old running around and help open doors to let in the air. She kept saying, "can I ask you a favor!" It was so inappropriate and tacky. Our shower was cold. We stayed one extra hour on Sunday(til noon) because we had just ran the Bay to Breakers. We were just about ready to leave when a staff member opened the door without knocking to let us know check out was at 11. Also inappropriate and tacky. We could have been naked! I will never ever stay there again! I've traveled all over the world, and this was one of the worst places I've ever been to. For $175 a night, there should have been more professional staff and better amenities. I should have paid $50 for that place. Plus, the location is right down the street from all the crackheads - which we walked through to get to the restaurant. The cost does not match the location, amenities and facility.

    • Couple
      7.0

      The staff was friendly and the location was conveniently located on Polk St. Also, the bathroom was recently remodeled.

      The room wasn't in the best shape but served it's purpose. And the elevator smelled.

    • Older travelers
      7.0

      Location was good with easy access to the city. Room and bedding was clean. Parking was excellent.

      Hotel check in is a bit long winded. It takes at least 15mins per guest. Our room Queen size was compact.

    • Family with children
      4.2

      The price is reasonable.

      There were a lot of flies around and very noisy all night long. The room is very small, no hot water the first night, and no wash cloth in the room. Service was very poor, asked to switch to the other room, but was told all rooms filled and that was not true.

    • Group of friends
      3.8

      There was blood on the shower curtain. Looked like there was remains of feces smeared on the bathroom wall. Elevator smelled like urine and hasn't been inspected since 2004. No dead bolt on the door. Heard sirens all night long. Thin walls-could hear the hotel maid vacuuming next door. Coffee cups in the bathroom but no Coffee machine.
