  • Family with children

    Generally good, v convenient location with free parking. Downside was that the pool and possible seating area were closed off, which drove the kids (and so us) mad. Better there was no pool at all!

  • Couple
    6.2

    Good location - close to bus station and marina district (=upper class party area, lots of bars and restaurants)

    Bed sheets were dirty (--> bring your own ones :) )

  • Single
    9.6

    Proximity to Golden Gate, bus is 10 minutes away from China Town

    Everything was good.

  • Couple
    5.0

    good position: few minutes drive from city center and fisherman's wharf. Inner rooms are quieter even if the hotel is on a highly busy road.

    Quite old and the bathroom was not clean. No breakfast included.

  • Couple
    7.4

    Big room and big bathroom. Good location. It was the only cheap hotel available for our travel period (we booked only one week in advance).

    Noise due to the traffic on the road. The room smells like "old"... Maybe coming from the old carpet or curtains or mattress.

  • Couple

    It is a rather old hotel, so you can't expect much. But i think that the cleanliness can be better. Parking space is small and limited.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    Good size rooms.

    Wanted a later check out -- only could do an hour later.

  • Single

    The hotel is very old and dirty. The couches are so dirty that it's disgusting even to touch them. The staff in the morning can hardly speak English and they don't speak Spanish at all so that it's difficult to talk to them if you have any question. I felt there very uncomfortable. And I'm not a very demanding person at all. If I ever travel to San Francisco again I won't stay at that hotel, under no circumstances.

  • Single

    Friendly staff. They did what they could with what they had, which wasn't their fault...Good internet.

    Terrible parking. Delapidated room, Noisy. Pidgeons inside the walls. Room had a loud, cheap electric portable floor heater in leiu of the broken fire hazard of an electric wall heater that certainly dated to before my childhood. Wall plug was missing a cover plate. Thin blankets. Room was cold with almost comically dim lighting.

    nice room, good location

    may be small car park and room little bite cold( in February)

  • Group of friends

    Everything was clean, room was very nice, no complaints at all.

  • Single
    7.0

    everything is on average nothing to write down paticularly...

    some hitchies with the remote control.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    inexpensive, good location, room was in nice condition. Did not notice bad odors.

  • Couple

    The Location... nice shops and restaurants in the neighbourhood. Also, we liked the price... not to expencive.

    There's a weird smell in the hotel and in the rooms (we stayed in 2 rooms). And there are lots of stains in the carpet and the chairs.

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    good location with bus stop right in front of the door and a lot of nice restaurants.

    the facility is limited and the sanitory condition is not satisfactory.
