Low price, simple, bathroom down the hall
Inexpensive, great location, free all-you-can-drink coffee machine with good lattes, helpful front door staff, easy come and go, sink in bedroom
A bit shabby, lamp was brocken, carpet old, bathroom and shower down the hall and had to bring key card to not get locked out of room.
Affordable, good location
Affordable, proximity to Haight-Ashbury and Alamo Park. Our room had a great view of the city.
Noise was definitely an issue, no sound protection from neighbouring rooms - the people in the room next to us were talking throughout the night (until 6am!!) and kept us awake All night
No air circulation in the room.
The location is decent.
We had no a.c. in the room even though the front desk confirmed there was central air. Also our ceiling fan did not work. The downstairs gave us a small desk fan which didn't help much. When we told them about our issue they said again there is central air. I told them the vents are open but nothing is coming out. They said they'd be up to check but never came and did nothing. I gave up. The Windows could be open but they do not open up directly outside to where air can circulate. It was cooler out in the hall than our room. I was disappointed.
very kind staff
staff were incredibly helpful and surprisingly flexible. i had a few issues with my schedule that were completely my fault and they were more than accommodating. coffee was great, rooms were modest , prices were fare. i would certainly stay again.
front side rooms get a lot of street noise, but that's hardly a fault for being in such a large city
Great location and that's about the only plus. I'm not sure the room my boyfriend and I stayed in had ever been cleaned. The sink was clogged with someone else's hair and I ended up using their towels to dust the room myself.
A Hidden Gem
The staff were all great ...... very helpful. The location is excellent. Away from the tourist area but within walking distance to tourist spots. A very nice residential area...close to many restaurants and cafes . It reminded me of many European hotels. If you like to,walk, this is the place for you
Outside road noise on Fillmore St. started early in the day. However after a couple of days we hardly noticed it.
Review from a group of 4 people:
I really loved how modern/chic-ish it looked. The room sizing was decent, if it's just you and one other person. That was what I intended when I booked my room. The maids are really nice and considerate. The free coffee/hot drink maker downstairs made the best early morning coffee! The manager was really nice, asked if I needed directions. The towels provided were really nice, helped dry us off really fast. Location is wonderful, literally a few blocks from the Painted Ladies and Alamo Square! The neighborhood it's in is also very beautiful if you like Queen Victorian Homes.
-The "shared bathroom" had rusty shampoo/conditioner hangers in the shower. -The sink in the bathroom was blocky and was just in the way. Really out of place. -There was a small stain on our bed sheets. -Room is stuffy. No A/C. -Walls are a little thin, especially if you have the windows open. -The window opens into this huge open center of the hotel, virtually everyone has their windows open as well, so the noise privacy was virtually non-existent. -You can see people in their rooms if your window is open. Particularly bad because of nudity. -The workers there are very strict and a little over-bearing. It was as if we couldn't have visitors just coming to our room. -Room is really small if you have more than two adults.
cute, oringal quick get away.
It was comfortable, had a window view looking out towards Fillmore street. Cable kinda sucked but who cares, explore San Fran. Everything was walking distances, should try stacks its like half a mile away from the hotel. Affordable, but remember its a Mom and Pop kinda hotel not the best but you get what you paid! Awesome coffee machine they had, its 10x it's size and less simple than a keruge. We lobed our stay at Casa Loma.
The beds creeked, sink was in our room, whites sheets were rough. Towels are rough, toiletries are mounted on the wall in the room in a container, overall simple and self explanatory, me and the boyfriend did't really need to call any type of room service. Friendly people and we made a lot of noise in the day no one seemed to complain or had a fuss about the love making we were making haha, so yeah Casa Loma was cute not to much to complain about. BTW WiFi sucked.
If you're a traveler on a budget and you're more concerned about the sights and sounds, this hotel is for you.
Bring slippers if you don't like dank bathroom floors. Bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper. The ventilation isn't good. The walls are thin too, so you probably shouldn't have sex here. Just saying.
A great stay for the 2nd time
This was my second time staying here and the experience was even better than the first. We got an outside facing room with an excellent view of the city (wish I could upload a pic). Clean rooms and facilities.
Pretty simple, shared bathrooms and such, but you still get more than you pay for.
Good price, decent location
Shared bathroom, dirty carpets, stains on floor/lampshade
Bare Bones accommodations in great location
- Helpful staff - Blocks from Hayes Valley/The Mission/CastroAlamo Square - Less than a block from bus lines, short walk to train - complimentary coffee in the lobby - budget friendly
Cheap beds and linens Cold shower in shared bathrooms Thin walls Can get pretty stuffy No elevator Loud neighbors
