Clean and tidy room, helpful staff. Great balance of affordable and safe accom, in an area that most tourists wouldn't feel so safe.

No modern facilities, and they do not return emails when you leave your phone on the desk.

It’s to far from union square. The walk took to long. It’s very noisy at night.

San Fran economy

Bed was fantastic but hotel was a bit tired. Lift was scary but worked. Got to meet lots of homeless all around the outside. Good walk back to city center.

Pleasant Hotel, comfortable and warm

6 girls traveling from Australia. Beds were comfy and clean. Bathroom was clean and enough towels. Staff were so lovely and really helpful. Slept on rear side of the hotel on level 4 which was good. Hardly any street noise. Hotel is located on skirt of a shady area of San Fran however we had no problems with the homeless people. It's a city they are going to be there. Felt safe walking in the group of us to locale restaurants and shops. Several car parking options were really close by. I would stay here again.

Convenient location, but short on creature comfort

Pros: Size of room, cleanliness.
Cons: Needs access to power points, hair dryer and ac.
Friendly staff, dodgy location, room was nice but NO power points or hair dryer. No ac, fan did OK, could not have was dows open due to noise from the street.

Well located well priced hotel in san Francisco

Lovely staff. Good location (but many homeless outside on the nearby streets and quite noisy from traffic and building works ). Clean slightly old fashioned building and room. Good bathroom.

Old Style Hotel in San Fran

Pros: Convenient location.
Cons: Bathroom linen and general facilities.
Location: So much to do in San Francisco. Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, union square, Fishermans wharf, South Bay, Tiburon and Sausalito.
Hotel is in a seedier part of San Francisco, but close to the main thoroughfare, Van Ness. The room was small with a tiny bathroom but quite a large walk in wardrobe. The elevator was antiquated and small, but worked reliably. The staff were friendly and helpful. The linen in the bathroom was pretty poor. Very small and quite threadbare. This should be a simple fix and would make a big difference.
