I rated this hotel only three stars, but when you take price and location into consideration, it can earn a higher rating. That said, do not be deceived. This is an older property that is definitely showing it's age. It's clean and the staff is friendly, but it is completely no-frills. If your only requirement is a bed and a...

Clean room, very friendly front desk, convenient location. It was rather loud at night but we stayed on a Thursday and Friday night in the middle of the city so it was expected. You can't expect great location and quietness together in San Fran. Staff were all very friendly, and locked up the front door to prevent strangers walking in....

Am staying here because the conference hotel was fully booked out and other hotels only had suites at hundreds a night left. Having said that, I'm pleasantly surprised. It's exactly what a two star hotel should be. Bed is not memory foam, but is supportive and I actually slept. Room is basic but clean and street noise is not too...

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights, yes it is old but the LOCATION is brilliant and the level of cleanliness top notch. You definitely wouldn't find better for your money. It is a bit noisey on bin day but you are in the heart of a city.

Great location. Clean hotel and friendly staff. Bathrooms very tiny, no aircon, lots of street noise even on top floor. Plumbing was a bit dodgy but it was rectified with a plumber sent within a half hour. The lobby was very hot. Staff cannot be faulted they were great and for a budget hotel it was ok. This hotel met...

I stayed for a full week, partly on business to attend a conference, but also meeting family over the weekend. No place is cheap in San Francisco, but this hotel had everything I needed: a comfortable room in a good location where my sister could join me over the weekend. I saved at least $50 a night at least (with...

So stayed in this hotel in San Francisco with husband for 3 nights . It is a budget hotel and you will be hard pressed to find a hotel with private bathroom for the same price in the Union square area . First impressions were ' oh my God ' . The room was small and fusty smelling but closer...

The hotel is in a great area, central to tons of restaurants and the tour buses. It's an old building and has been kept up decently. The service is amazing, everyone we talked to was very friendly. The rooms were very clean (if a bit musty smelling). The room wasn't large, and had one double bed, a nightstand and chair...
