I wish we had known that soap was not provided…or washcloths. If you are not there at the beginning of dinner the fresh fruit was gone and they don't put out any more throughout the meal. The milk needs to be inore ice to stay cold.
The bed was comfortable. The shower had good pressure. I enjoyed the fresh fruit when it was available.

Could not get access to WIFI on my lap top. Small bar fridge was provided but no extension cord provided - unable to plug in.
Staff were all very friendly and helpful . Great meals provided. Would even keep your meal if you are late

If I must say something I say that I'm not s big fan of permanent floor carpets, but I guess English and Americans like them a lot because those are used in very many places.
-Staff was very nice and helpful. -Hotel is situated in safe area. -Food was good. I had very nice excperience. You get what you pay for.

Awful shower...only trickles of water, wifi not very dependable, location not that central, place shows signs of ageing, not that cheap for what you get, seems like halfway house with many long termers there
Half an hour by foot to town or Golden Gate (through steep hills, however!)... Very friendly and helpful staff, basic breakfast offered though very early in morning (they offer dinner too but never had it).. Ok rooms, mine was ensuite... Convenience stores (with late opening) nearby

Breakfast was a bit boring, but I think that's the style in most American hotels. The room has minimum amenities and looks old, and so does the bathroom.
Dinner was great. Every day we had different options and the menu was very creative. Everyone at the reception/kitchen was very friendly.

Not handicapped accessible, elevator door was difficult to manage with luggage, room lighting could be brighter.
Price includes delicious hot breakfast and dinner with salad bar, vegetarian options, hot beverages all day, . Warm, friendly, helpful staff. Courteous, largely international, young guests. Fabulous location, public transit access. No hotel tax.

Every night around 5h30 there was a really high metal noise coming from under my room. The internet connection in the room was weak.
The commodity, the staff, the price and the included breakfast and dinner policy.

Nothing significantly bad with regard to the Kenmore Hotel.
The neighborhood was quiet and safe. Although the Kenmore is situated on Sutter Street, it's quite a walk from Van Ness and even further from Union Square. If anything the location is nearer to Japantown. That aside the hotel felt secure and the staff on reception were polite and helpful. Although breakfast is provided there are some excellent places to grab a coffee, bagel, French toast and pancakes. There was a fantastic liquor store one block away which serves some great and inexpensive food. All in all I would have no hesitation in staying at the Kenmore again, confortable, safe and great value. My only criticism is the long hike over to Powell Street for the Cable Cars and stores. And the long walk up and down to Market Street for the street cars and buses to Fisherman's Wharf, the Castro and Height Ashbury.

Quite old, mismatched furniture, ready for a major update, other than the bathrooms Windows overdue for a washing Uneven stairs
Location was quiet, easy access to busses and cable cars Some staff were outstanding Some meals very good, some ordinary Comfortable bed, sparkling bathroom Building reminded us of colonial hotels in other countries Many foreign students staying there

Far from Wharf area Snappiness of lobby
Friendly staff Youth hostel feeling Dinner an extra perk Food acceptable

Old style facilities

Spicy dinner and my next door neighbors were a bit loud, I had to go there and asked them to lower their voices. You can hear all that's happening in the hallway.
I love the Argentine Lady that takes care of the breakfast, besides breakfast are really good. Dinner a little spicy for me but it is a good thing to have extra. This city is expensive, and for the price that I paid was a great deal. By bus you can move around pretty good, and is a secure area.

The bed was hard and the cereal was all sugar.
Breakfast and dinner was provided and dinner kept if you were running late, it was a secure building and a central location and very good value.
September 25, 2014
Didn't expect such great food when I saw that "free breakfast and dinner" thing.
September 24, 2014
"unfriendly" bathtub for handicapped people- there are no handle bars to assist getting into and out of the tub. Decrepit furniture- drawers don't fit properly. Badly stained carpets. Tv channel selection poor
convenience of having food as part of the hotel bill- no need to go out searching for a restaurant
September 15, 2014
Concerning the facilities, comfort or cleanliness of the room, it was very bad !!!
The only good thing was the breakfast and dinner : good quality and very nice staff.

Some restrooms did not have sinks. Shower box too small. Bathtub shower was a security hazard. Towels were a bit stained. Couple of hotel staff were a bit rude. Hotel lost one of my packages. Hotel does not promote too much social interaction
Location Food was very good Quiet and secure neighborhood Very easy to get by bus Near to Union Square Quiet place Comfortable bed

This place isn't a plush hotel by any means. The facilities are clean enough but plain, I'd recommend bringing an extra towel as ours weren't changed until the day before we left. That said, you're in a city, not on a beach holiday so you probably won't be in the hotel that much.
The location of The Kenmore is super, in Japantown which is nice and quiet. There is a cable car on Van Ness which is a short walk away. We enjoy walking as it's the best way to see the sights, and found that Union Square, Chinatown and North Beach and even the Ferry Building are walkable providing you wear comfy shoes. Honestly, the location is what this place has going for it. The staff are pleasant and the breakfast and dinner you get included in the price is pretty good too.

The sheets looked pretty grimy and there were aspects of the room which were not very clean but nothing major. Also there are lots of students who stay there so it has the potential to get very noisy (we had one night of this)
Fantastic food, Fantastic staff and a great location
