We chose this hotel because of the positive reviews on Tripadvisor for hotels in our price category. With hindsight, I wish we'd just paid the extra and stayed elsehwere.
- Free parking
- Decent location, approx 15 mins walk to Fisherman's Wharf, 20 to downtown and 35 to Cannery Row.
- Outdated concrete building.
- We were given a room with a view of an electricity pylon/college car park
- There was a pubic hair on the bed when we first arrived
- There was a squashed fly on the wall which the cleaners are probably never likely to clean off
- Sink plughole wouldn't stay down
- Towels smell of strong bleach
- Very poor shower pressure
- Cold bathroom
- Non portable hairdryer (i.e. you can only use in the bathroom)
- Noisy heating system
- Poilte but ungenuine staff (i.e. go through the motions and no more)
We would have been happy to have communicated all of this to a member of staff on checkout, if they had the courtesy to ask us how our stay had been,
Under no circumstances would we consider staying here again.
