Wifi was bad, half the time connection kept dropping. Felt unsafe for the first night. Saw lot of homeless near the property, but then figured that SF is full of homeless.

The staff is extremely unhelpful and rude. First night we got there, they didn't even let us in and the guy wasn't nice at all when we asked about the hold they made on my credit card. He didn't mention that breakfast was only from 8 to 9 am so we missed that. The next morning the girl at the desk didn't care about the fact that we missed breakfast because no one had told us what time breakfast was. I asked her why I got a hold on my card before getting there and then got charged an amount that was higher than the price of the room, she replied that the difference on the price and the hold were both deposits, which I don't get especially because they say the room was a "pay later" one. Hopefully I'll get the money back. Overall the staff is awful, no "thank you", "sorry" or "please" was said. Again, the location is nice but you can find many other nicer options that don't feel like a motel.
The room is sufficient (although we booked a King and we got a 4-people room with Queen beds). Overall clean. Nice position but you can find plenty of better options in the same area.

It's consistently clean and in a great location. Cost is reasonable.

The check in and check out process was quite slow. Not sure if the equipment is old or what. The rooms could really use some general updating. Linens, wall, new beds for sure.
The place has some updating done and it looks quite nice from the outside. The pool area is very cute and cozy.

just that SOMA is still developing so some homeless around but near this place definitely less.
Its location to all the bars of SOMA. It felt secure despite its location

The away from the man road

When we arrived entrance was blocked by a police car there to settle a dispute. First night two women were having words in the driveway at 4 am, which accelerated into screaming. Chain on door wouldn't reach, so useless. Bed was very hard.
Good location; good price; parking for $10/night. Hotel and rooms had new paint, granite counter top in bath and had obviously been upgraded recently. Close to freeway on-ramps.

The area was very very unsafe. Someone tried to break into my hotel room multiple times the night I stayed. Not a good part of San Francisco.

The beds could have been more comfortable, but then I'm imagining my stay at the Hilton in Vancouver on their heavenly beds, I guess I got confused, but close second. Any more comfortable and I wouldn't have woken up, nyuck nyuck! More coffee in the room, but seriously THANKS!
Accessibility to everything was pretty much there to do! Parking! Parking! Parking! So excellent! The breakfast room in the morning was just perfect, not too much, not too little, Goldilocks! The pool was so comforting after trekking up Lombard St. and going to the top of Coit Tower, unfortunately I was only able to enjoy it one time, but it was heaven!

I didn't like the service of the staff member who checked me in.
I liked the location and everything about the room.

The constant noise of random people hanging around late at night.
The cleanliness of the room

Friendly staff, price

The neighborhood has deteritated over the years and twice found homeless people outside my room seeking shelter. Front desk staff not professionally trained. Basic breakfast included- poor choices..
March 26, 2015

Room was cleaned every day, airco worked, good shower, Room was very good for the money

Service at front desk. Checking in and out was embarrassing to watch how confused the employees were.

If your not used to city life; the street people might be off putting. They are harmless though. We take a cab at night to and from the front of the place.
The location is easy to get to off the freeway and near Market street restaurants. Parking used to be free, but now $10-still better than $30 or more down the street at other places.

Horrible location. I felt completely unsafe. I had people banging on my door at 4 am.
March 4, 2015
the area was very close to the Civic Centre which is where drugs users and homeless congregate. on two nights we were unable to sleep because of the noise, threatening and frightening behaviour of other guests / visitors outside out room door. No action by the management at all. Photos bore little resemblance to the room we were given Rating should be close to 0
