    Super noisy outside the hotel at night (homeless on the streets), super small bathroom with very low mirror (almost had to get on my knees). I would be embarrassed if I were Best Western as most of their hotels are very good now.

    Although the rooms are very tiny, the location and service is excellent. For this location in San Francisco, the price was very, very good for walking, restaurants, and sightseeing. The lobby and lounge areas provide nice visiting spaces, and the staff is friendly and helpful.More
