Using points and cash, this was a very good value for SF. Very good location, only a couple of blocks from Union Sq and Market St BART & buses. Room was a little on the small size, it was very clean and beds were comfortable, in-room safe, flat screen TV, and even tho we were facing the street, street noise...

We stayed here recently and felt lucky to leave with our lives. This place is ancient and the rooms have had a coat of paint thrown on but man it was rough. Zero parking of course and we paid $200 a night. First room that we were given the bed had just been slept in and the next room someone...

The location is perfect. It is a short walk to Union Square, the cable cars, BART and bus lines. The front desk people were very friendly and informative. The continental breakfast was typical. Cereal, yogurt, toast, oatmeal, bananas and prepackaged pastries. Not a lot, but it was quick and easy to grab on our way out to tour the city....

For the price, I didn't expect this to be a lovely experience. But I absolutely didn't expect to hop in the shower at 6:30AM and wait five minutes for the water to warm up. The room was decent, if dusty in patches and just a bit tired. The breakfast was adequate. As one of the cheaper options in SFO, it's...

We got to our room, went into the restroom there was used soap in the soap holder, there was hair on the towel. Also, there was used chewing gum on the side of the tissue box on top of the toilet. I was very disappointed that this was a Super 8 property. I have never has this problem before.

The room had a weird smell to it, perhaps mildew. I mostly noticed it when I would first walk in. Also, the water in the shower got to room temperature, at best. NO hot water really. And it didn't help that it was next to a nightclub or something, so it was really loud till about 2am. I had earplugs...
