We went to this hotel mostly because of the good price. It turned out to be a good example of ' you get what you pay for'.
Good neighbourhood, just don't go south into The Tenderloin.
Good bus connection to the Fisherman's Wharf (bus 19)
Near Chinatown (15-20 mins walk down hill)
Free internet on pc's in the lobby and free wifi
Not too friendly lady (in the mornings) at the front desk, didn't say really much
Heard two people being sent to another hotel because they were overbooked, without even offering them a partial refund or discount or anything
And the worst of the worst: they seemed to rent rooms to amateur musicians who can play music until 11 pm. Who ever thought of combining this concept with a HOTEL must be a bit awkward. Just choose either one of the concepts but this did not make any sense at all and it was really frustrating.
