Reviewed 11 March 2014

This is a great location near bus routes and the cable cars but away from the main tourist regions of SF. There are many restaurants and a Walgreens within a few blocks. I got an excellent price (online, several weeks in advance), and the free parking was especially appreciated. There was free wifi but the signal was not always strong. The elevator to the parking garage sounded like it would break at any minute, and the building as a whole looked a bit tired and run down. My room was spacious with a good bed and clean bathroom (that's all I needed) but would not impress someone who was very picky. The room opened to an outdoor walkway so ask for an upper floor if security is a concern. The main attraction that would bring me back is the location and reasonable price.

Room Tip: Take a room on an upper floor.

We were on our way home from a cruise and had made too many stops visiting friends and were too tired to continue driving. While going down Van Ness ave in San Francisco we found this little gem! Great location before the Golden Gate Bridge if you need a place to stay when you are tired. Great price also.

Room Tip: Our room faced Van Ness and if you are in the city it is always awake, so if you do not like some tr...

This is a place where you can spend your time in San Francisco in good money. To the main attractions you have to go by cab or bus but for night life there is plenty bars/clubs around. Rooms are rather small, but have bathroom inside. They are cleaned every day.

Let's start with the good: Room comes with free WiFi, free parking, a microwave and mini fridge. The room was very clean.
The bad: parking is very limited and cars have to double park nightly. The place is on the corner of Broadway and Van Ness Ave which is a major busy street. My room was on the second floor and I could hear every single car zoom by as if I was standing on the sidewalk (not good when you are trying to get some sleep.)
The walls are paper thin, I could hear my neighbor's tv, cell phone ringing and conversations. And don't get me started on the elephants that were above me and decided to trample around their room at 6 am!
If you are a light sleeper like me DO NOT COME HERE. However, if you can sleep through fire alarms, earthquakes and zoo animals this is your kind of place.

This is the worst place to stay un San Francisco, I mean they charged me $208 dollars for a 14 hour phone call that I didn't even do !! I was not even in my room at the time the phone call was registered and the staff was really rude about it and refused to clear the situation.

They also offer free Wifi but it never worked, rooms are Ok but if you want to avoid stupid charges into your credit card this is not the place to stay!

For a very reasonable rate we got a clean, quiet room in a location that was convenient for us.
This is not a luxury hotel; but for a one-night stay near many tourist destinations - at a price within our budget - we thought it was a good deal. The beds were comfortable. The bedspreads should be upgraded: they were quite old and faded (i.e. they don't make a good first impression)

Negative comment: They advertise wifi, but it did not work. We made several calls to the front desk, but their attempted solutions did not work. In San Francisco, this seems like a significant loss of service.

Room Tip: They have off-street parking, but a limited amount. We were glad we decided to walk to dinner, inst...

I stayed in this hotel about 2 weeks ago. The location was very good, near to local attraction near by. Cable car was just 3 blocks away. Sam who checked us in was very kind to show us places around and warn us about places NOT to go. There was a shuttle pickup to the airport from the hotel which was awesome. The rooms were clean and nice. We stayed in the 4th floor and it was quite. Liya on the front office was able to book sightseeing bus which was fun and was very helpful with all our questions about the city. I would definately go back to this hotel again as we got a discount code for our next stay. Thank you for wonderful service, clean rooms and good price. Cheers!

Room Tip: 4th floor is quite
