6.0 Okay
The hotel was probably nice one or two decades ago. Now it is a bit run down, which explains why the rates are reasonable. If you just need a very simple place to sleep it is ok.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The staff was super friendly. The hotel was very clean. The room was a little small but perfect for us. 2 adults, 2kids. We just needed a place to sleep as we were out and about all evening and left early in the morning. I highly reccomend this hotel. About a 15 minute walk to the warf.
Cons:Nothing. :-)
6.8 Okay
Cons:Hotel staff was nice, friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the rooms are noisy because they face the street. Decent hotel but needs updating. Good central location and within 10 minute walk to fisherman's wharf. I consider this a budget hotel. Avoid room 318: Very noisy and small.
7.4 Good
Pros:The place is in a convenient spot, near to almost everything in SF downtown area. The staff was nice and helpful
Cons:The bed and carpet were damp and had weird smell. Theres a guy sleeping on the stairs, which iscreepy. The price was a little expensive but we had no other choice due to last minute decision
8.0 Very good
Pros:Clean rooms. Great for just passing through
Cons:Price. Could have been $50-$80 cheaper.
4.8 Mediocre
Cons:Way too noisy, dated hotel, rooms too small, not enough parking, elevator wouldn't work.
3.1 Poor
Pros:clean sheets and comfortable bed
Cons:very noisy location at Lombard and Franklin, musty smelling rooms, look for better options for about the same price in that area
8.0 Very good
Pros:Helpful staff Free parking microwave & fridge location
Cons:a little updated a little bit noisy, but it's San Francisco so understandable
