I stayed here for vacation and was very pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and protected from bed bugs. You need a key card to get to the rooms- my stuff was safe and sound all week. It was noisy, but not overpowering. I didn't need ear plugs, I just kept the air conditioning on (an amenity you don't get in SF at this price point). The absolute best part though was the location. Get a MUNI pass while you're here. You won't have to walk more than three blocks to get anywhere in the city.
The homeless are an issue in this area. There are several civic outreach programs nearby, so they tend to flock in the area. But really, it's hard to go anywhere in SF without seeing them. Just walk with purpose, and no one will bother you. I was asked for money three times. At no time did I encounter aggressive behavior. I walked the Embarcadero after a Giants night game and felt more spooked than any time I went to or from the hotel. And if you do feel uneasy, take a cab. It cost me $13 from AT&T Park with tip.
This place is great.
