Placed in downtown San Francisco's Tenderloin district, only a few minutes from popular attractions such as Union Square, this motel offers comfortable accommodations in a central and convenient...

The breakfast was good and the staff was friendly and very helpful.
I requested handicap and my husband could not use the shower because he could not raise his leg over the bathtub. Their are no thermostats to regulate the temperature. I've never been in a hotel room without that! The rugs were stained and the website made it appear better than what it was. I'm still a Marriott 's fan.
Staff was super friendly and helpful. Free shuttles was nice.
Not the best location and lacked a few amenities,like no pool and not a great selection for breakfast.
The front desk staff were amazing and very helpful.
The maid service was poor. Every day we had to ask for things they forgot: towels, coffee, shampoo, etc.
I can't say enough how helpful the staff here are. And it extended to areas that were not related to the hotel. I needed to confirm a tour and could not get thro the agency and Latoya from the front desk helped confirm it and arrange the pick up time which was a real help. Rooms were comfy and had all the basic amenities. Good security as you need the room keys to activate the lifts. The hotel also offers free shuttle to most tourist places like Union Square and Fisherman's Wharf and this is really helpful.
The hotel is located in a back alley and you see the homeless and many shady characters. It was quite scary walking alone at night. Stay away if you are a single traveller or intend to be out alone at night.
too much humid in our room, too cold as well. Neighborhood was not the best.
Very friendly and helpful staff . Shuttle service was useful and convenient .
Breakfast could be better .
Nice hotel Free Wifi Breakfast included Walking distance to Moscone Center
Heator was too noisy.
Nice little place to stay, great location, and the staff was super friendly.
Parking was expensive. Breakfast was average and they kept running out of food.
Room has no air-conditioner. The breakfasts are lousy and inadequate.
the modern feel of it.
breakfast was not up to par. toast was pre-toasted and put into a covered bin. so it was not warm of course...
Free shuttle to main places in San Francisco. Food is great, also the service is awesome. I would definitely stay here again for my next visit to San Fran.
(Diamond) Good hotel, good staff, good room.
(The rough) Did not feel safe in the neighbourhood of the hotel.
Clean Spacious rooms Comfortable beds Large safety box USB Power charger Curtains did darken room completely
Breakfast choice is limited No swimming pool
A great place with extremely helpful and friendly staff! Just several blocks away from Union Square and close to Chinatown. On the top floor there is a terrace with a beautiful view of the city. There are some homeless people in the neighborhood (a church nearby offers food and shelter), but they are not aggressive. If someone feels uncomfortable with that, the hotel offers shuttle services to Union Square, Moscone Center, Fisherman's Wharf, and Japantown. I think Cova hotel offers one of the best value-for-money deals in San Francisco.
Charming hotel. Great staff and very accommodating with their free shuttle services around the city. Easy access to main areas of the city.
Very poor location. Lots of postitutes, homeless, people selling and using drugs in broad daylight in the Tenderloin district. I wouldn't want to walk around alone at night here.
We were kept awake all night by alley noise reverberated off of our lovely brick wall view. The free breakfast is scant.
Arrived early and was treated very nice, got into my room quickly. Great shuttle service. Front desk was so friendly and helpful. Very central to most attractions.
would not walk neighborhood after dark, but didnt need to. Taxis are everywhere.
Cost and semi close to Bart
no air conditioning
Loved the friendly helpful staff, all the amenities including free shuttle, daily breakfast, microwave, wifi, etc. Warm and cozy hotel. Even though location was not in a prime neighborhood, it was convenient and close to the attraction sites we wanted to visit.
There was very little shower pressure. Our room was also right next to another and we could hear door slamming every time someone would leave. Some mornings was noisy with car alarms beeping and valet guys talking loudly
Throughout the our 3 night stay. Our maids didn't change the sheets once.
Your staff was kind and helpful.
Your breakfast didn't include bacon, like in the pictures in line. False advertising!!
Great value for money. Good breakfast comfortable bed lovely staff. Easy walking distance of centre of town and all transport.including tour buses. Loads of shops and eateries. Especially enjoyed M.Y.vChina in Bloombergs shopping mall. Best mezl of the 3 week stay in California. Staff were amazing and food was glorious!!!!
Lack of drawers in room meant we had to leave most clothes in case. Ellis street full of rough sleepers. Sad sad sight but they did not bother us and we got many nice hellos. No one asked for anything. We eventualy realised we could turn up first street on left then down first right and avoid the worst area. Would stay there again despite this.
The staff were amazingly helpful and friendly. The rooms were nice, comfy bed, great TV (and cable), and the bathroom was spacious. Pretty much happy with everything! The free breakfast in the downstairs cafe was simple, but you could pay extra for fancier meals (pancakes, french toast, bacon etc).
The area (Tenderloin) is the poorest area in San Fran which can put people off, but i wouldn't let this stop you from staying here! As 2 young females, we felt safe enough. The staff organise taxis if you need them and there are free shuttles to and from Union Square and Fisherman's Warf.
The hotel was great. Rooms were clean and big enough and they had a restaurant which served great breakfast
The area around the hotel isn't the greatest there are a lot of homeless people that don't really bother you but it does make you feel a bit unsafe when walking around
