Very friendly staff, everything was clean and smelled nice. The room was not too small, and the bed was perfectly comfortable.
Our bathroom sink did not have hot water.
Cute and comfortable! Loved the decor, thw rooms were cute, the bathtub was wonderful (i took a long bath) and the bed was clean and comfy. Easy walking distance to some yummy restaurants.
My only complaint would be that when i went to check in, the staff at the front desk didn't show up for a good ten minutes. when they finally did show up they were rude- wouldn't make eye contact, didn't say hello...I'm not sure what his deal was but it was a weird interaction. but other than that one issue the hotel was a lovely stay.
Very noisy. People yelling outside the hotel and ambulance contsnatly driving by until 4am. Its an excellent hotel, unless of course, the guest wishes to sleep. I ended up checking out after night 1 of my three day trip to SF.
central location / good quality for price / parking lot right next door
The guy at the front desk checked us in 3 hours early just to be nice. They were very accommodating when we checked out too - let us leave our luggage there until we returned. They were prompt about getting us anything we needed during our stay. It is very close to Fisherman's Warf (20 min. Bus ride - and the buses come every 3 - 6 min.) and a whole lot cheaper than anything at the war
The elevator is definitely old and slow. It only fits 5 people (barely) and it can be incredibly slow - so our recommendation is take the stairs when you come down in the morning.
Easy to get, independence (you do not have to talk with the staff), quiet although there is some noise outside.
The internet only works near the front desk (I think is a misconfiguration) and most of the time is very slow.
I didnt like the location. The neighbourhood is very very dodgy. As a female traveling alone, I didnt feel comfortable walking around in the neighbourhood. Not value for money considering what I paid, and the poor location. No laundry services available on site the hotel.
