Location was good!
Unit, Parking, Noise, Service, Lightning issue, Glass in shower and room....Total confusion with front desk. Check in was OK. Then went downhill from that point forward....
room was clean, service was great. breakfast was enough to get started for the day, for just needing the room to sleep we enjoyed it very much.location was a definate plus close to everything
everything was great
Location, location, location!!! We stayed here once last year and twice this summer. Wonderful staff; great accomodations; clean, fresh smelling rooms, good breakfast.
Elevator a little slow and would have liked a hard boiled egg with breakfast.
The location couldn't have been better...right on Union square with the tram running straight outside the hotel and the hop on, hop off bus right round the corner.
Bed was hard, lift extremely slow and no safe in the room. Short on breakfast, especially on our last day and we were always early.
Really friendly staff, clean rooms, nice common area. Very good location.
The elevator really is as slow as everyone says. Would have taken the stairs if we didn't have a stroller. The breakfast is a typical motel breakfast, not very filling. Could use some proteins!
The hotel is on one of the main street of SFO, Powell Str, just in front of the Cable Car stop. Very clean and confortable, room quite large and big bathroom with a big shower.
Elevator quite slow and breakfast not so good.
A bit tired but good value for money.
Clean newly remodeled room and well stocked. Comfortable bed and pillows.
No air conditioner. Room too stuffy and warm. The room was on the street side which didn't quiet down till 3am.
Location excellent, breakfast and wifi all that we needed. Nice comfy beds and clean.
Slow lifts and not being able to make coffee in room.
Staff very helpfully and friendly. Very good location. Good value for money.
A it noisy, but in the centre of a city that is to be expected
Its a cosy place in a great location, centre of Union Square and close to everything from shopping, amenities, malls, starbucks, and walk to all places. Parking can be an issued so either coin parking away and walk to the hotel and take the risk of street parking or take the $35/day parking could be worth every pennies. ;)
The lift are very small. Ok for light travellers. If you have lots of stuff, this could be an issues. Breakfast is very poor, toasts and cereal and thats it! Wifi a bit slow but hey, youre on holidays and should be out walking on the street.
Location. Location. Location. Room was nice and clean. Breakfast in the morning was good with even some fruits (apples, bananas..).
Perfect place for a traveler like me. It's near to everywhere and everything in San Francisco. I will definetly stay there again and will recommend it to people who travels like the way i travel.
Staff were friendly and helpful
Location Quiet room Great staff Value for money
One very small thing - no fridge in room, needed when staying for a few days
No room to move No external air Small bed but you could't fit a bigger one Stained duvet Lift noises shall I go on!!!!!!
Great staff, very nice and helpful.
No a/c. If the rooms were as cool as the lobby it'd be great; they're not.
it was very handy to union square.
You're rooms were very small compared with the pictures on your website! And your lift was SO SLOW!
The replacement room I was given after spending 2 nights in a small room with a view of a brick wall after a comment to Jack one of your desk persons.Also the breakfast was great.Location was excellent
The small room I was assigned which revealed a brick wall on drawing the curtains and due to the fact I picked up a flu bug I spent more time in the room and it seemed to get smaller.
The hotel is located next to a cable car stop. The room had a good size, comfortable bed and was quiet. Good district for downtown shopping with several large shopping malls nearby. Close to the Bart station with easy access to SF and Oakland airports. Wifi worked very well, I was even logged on automatically when driving past the hotel in a cable car.
Location became a bit unpractical with cable cars not operating for three days. View was of a brick wall, elevator was quite slow. Staff knocked on the door one hour before checkout time despite the do not disturb sign being up.
Location, location, location! Basic rooms but you're not in San Fransisco to stay in your room, right?! Great front desk staff, very helpful, breakfast good, oh, and did I mention the location?!
Good location for walking or riding the cable car and many restaurants nearby.
Advertised on site parking did not exist. Smallest rooms ever only with 2 single beds. No aircon. Bad breadfast. Too expensive for what you get.
Great location. Friendly staff. Updated bathroom.
Room on street side very noisy. Breakfast was not gluten-free friendly.
Breakfast was very poor basically bread and cereal
The room was clean and comfortable. Most staffs are nice and friendly. Many thanks for the staff who called the taxi for us. The hotel locates at Union Square, really convenient. Recommend!!!
One of the male staffs was impatient and unfriendly.
