Perfect location, only two blocks from Union Square and downtown San Francisco (reachable on foot).
The hotel is located close to the Tenderloin, one of the most homeless crowded area. For sentitive people or for those who are not used to see homeless people sleeping on the pavement, it might be a little scary or moving (depending on the person). Very basic inn services (no wardrobe), but up to the expectations for me and my family.
Bad neighbourhood, close to downtown but in the sketchy area
The location of the hotel is excellent to visit SF and staff was very helpful and kind. The rooms were big and for its value (SF is expensive, so don't expect to get anything better for this price) it was really great. It was nice to have free parking in such good location and also free wifi.
The location has a lot of homeless nearby, however it is like this in almost all central locations in SF and nearby even very fancy hotels.
It was the Lowest Price with free parking
The location , the room was not clean, and the bedding was in a very bed condition
Close to city centre
Seedy area, people sleeping rough
There was free parking space
Location is terrible - homeless people all around on very dirty street district. Very scary walking around in evenings. I would not recommend this hotel if you travel with kids.
friendly staff, pretty close to the center, clean and quiet place to stay
not nice walking there at night
location is all
3 adults in a room with advanced reservations we had 2 see through towels no wash clothes, hand towels or floor mats. had to call front desk twice for stopped up toilet 2 time we had to leave motel and find another bathroom to use. elevator is scary, expected to get stuck in it every time it was used. had an elderly woman with us so stairs were not an option.
Location is good for central SF. The price is reasonable for location, but not for quality
Walls are very thin. Lots of noise from street and other rooms throughout the night. The room is very basic and questionably clean.
-Place is v.close to union square, 5 min walking distance. -Hotel cleanness was fair inside room. -
-Lots of homeless around the hotel. -No AC in the room -Hotel isn't clean outside the room -Noise outside the room from the homeless people
We like their location. Staff is helpful.you will get hot water 24hours good space for parking. Elevater is ok
Location was good. Rooms were clean enough. Price is economical for San Francisco.
The hotel and area were very loud. Couldn't get any sleep. The staff was apathetic and unaccommodating.
Very terrible and dirty place..I found a rat in my room and I also got bugged. Despite these the hotel was not cheap at all..Not recommended place!
Not even a chair in the room, no refrigerator, towels dirty, ice machine out of order and we paid nevertheless a high pricce. The motel is really downtown, but this might be the only advantage.
Construction noise, no wash cloths in bathroom, no Kleenex, not in a good neighborhood, old facility
location close to downtown, free parking, some staff helpful, clean renovated bathroom
Expensive, small room, no fridge, no coffee or tea, no breakfast, many homeless people around hotel, not safe a neighbourhood, dirty carpet, room faced back alley with homeless people loud at night
Dreadful location, full of rough sleepers and addicts. Dirty, unreliable elevator.
It didn't take long to walk downtown. Some of the reception staff were very helpful.
We were located on the back side of the hotel facing the ally which was had a number of homeless people who were loud all night long. The area felt very unsafe after dark. Our room had a rodent of some sort. There was no fridge or tea and coffee facilities. There was very limited parking.
Price too high. Rooms too small. Customer service not very good.
Staff is very friendly and accommodating. They have $15 airport shuttles!
Had own bathroom
Had too go across street for ice and had to pay for it. Air conditioning was turned off when not in room
near union square
room, service, facilities, not clean... noise
I suggest u guys to walk in O'ferreral or Geary street to Union square.Avoid from walking through the Ellis or Eddy street cause there are many homeless and criminals. The hotel stuff is good but the room is so smelly! The bathroom is clean. and the thai resteurant, Zen yai ,opposite the hotel is really nice.
Smell in the room. So bad :(
disgusting, extremely dirty, the most horrible place I've ever been. We booked 5 nights and only stayed one. They charged us a penalty of two nights. Looks like a hotel for taking prostitutes. We were given a room on the fist floor. Urine and smoke smell. blankets full of holes of burn cigarette, sticky bathroom floor, disgusting extremely dirty carpet. The most unsafe neighbourhood in SF. Ellis street is a street 99% full of prostitutes, drug addicts, homeless and crazy scary people. I'm not exaggerating, I usually don't mind staying in low fare hotels but this is far from any limit
