“Comfy and clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

Nothing bad to say about this Hotel. Price seems in line with location, which is less than 2 blocks from Union Square.
Rooms are clean. Finally no carpet but woody floor. Either we were lucky or every room is not noisy. In the hall you could hear loud tv from neighbours but in the room nothing.
Finally a fan on the ceiling instead of those misatable airco's. The bathroom ans esspecially the shower is really amazing!
Sometimes however you can smell smoke from other rooms in our room.
Alltogether; nice hotel on a great spot.

Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple

The lobby is small with old furniture and carpet. Behind the desk you will find a 24 hour reception, video survailance monitors and printed out notes saying stuff like "ALL ROOMS MUST BE PAID IN ADVANCE".

The elevator is so old that it is actually pretty cool.

You will find some guests on this hotel that do not look like your normal tourists or buisness travelers. They might occupy the cheaper rooms without private path. There is a shared kitchen also if you want to Cook your own food.

I had a deluxe room for 7 days. The room is very basic, but everything Works and it is clean. The internet was fast, free and worked all the time.

No problems with noice except for the pipes in the Building making strange sounds one of the nights.

You can go from the hotel to union Square without problems any time. Use Powell street if you want to go Down to market street without going through a lot of homeless people.

I can't believe I was suckered into paying so much for this place. I thought I'd pay more since other cheaper hotels in SF had not been great, and this place was still more expensive while supposedly on sale - I had to pay in advance. It seems people live there, likely low-rent with shared bathrooms. "Hotel" room had its own bathroom thank God, but it wasn't clean. Found sticky stuff on bathroom floor and hairs that I cleaned up myself. The whole room was small so not much space to move and no desk to set up a laptop, while the bathroom was strangely spacious. Everything shoddily renovated. There were signs up for the residents to cooperate with the pest control company! I tried my hardest to leave the place after one night but due to external booking I was out of luck. It was hard to communicate with the front staff. Don't make the same mistake - there are real hotels even in this area that can be had for similar price (at least if you get a deal). Look for a nice lobby, good reviews and free wine hour if you're going off-brand (which most of the hotels in SF are). There are at least two more local hotel chains that offer good hotels as well.

Room Tip: Don't stay here

Great value for the money!
We had a room with an ensuite bathroom and were really impressed. The room is big and the tv have an endless option of channels. Near Union Square and when we were there, during Thanksgiving, we were invited to participate in the hotels thanksgiving dinner. (Unfortunately we couldn't since both of us had gotten sick days before). The staff is nice and there is a lot of dining options around the hotel.

Nice, clean and cozy room and a friendly atmosphere. One of the best hotels we stayed at in San Fransisco. .

The room is small but clean. The location is so good that it just take minutes to get to the shopping mall cluster. And good place to have food and everything. Adding the safe place. it is so good. I will choose this hotel again if I go next time.

This is the real review of this hotel. I'm an italian student who has lived in this hotel for two months, so I perfectly know which are the counterpoints and what is not good. I'm actually here and I will leave in two days.
First, the position is awesome: two blocks from Union Square, four from powell station and served by bus and tram. Both if you are looking for a few nights or for a long staying, all the facilities are near. It is located in the centre of Downtown and there are plenty of shops and restaurant and, as I said, you can get quickly to all transports.
Furthermore the staff is really polite, when I had question or trouble ( in two months a few of them happened ) they always were kind and helped me in finding a solution. They all have lived here in San Francisco for years, so ask them for every information, they will make you save money.
About the furnitures, of course, is not a five star hotel, so you cannot expect things that you will never have. However for the price you pay, the ratio quality/price is very good: rooms are ok and clean, once a week there is housekeeping, there are healthy control every month, and shared restrooms and showers also are cleaned almost 5 times a day. They have both rooms with private bathrooms and shared ones, which I enjoyed. There are also a big kitchen, served of almost all dishes and a laundry.
In conclusion, if you are not interested in spending a lot of money this hotel is the best you can get, of course sometimes there are tenants who do not respect rules and steal pads from the kitchen or leave restrooms and shower as a jungle, but this is a problem of customers, not of the hotel! All the reviews i read here do not consider this fact: most of people are not well educated, if they were this place would be really amazing. As a whole I will definitely come back here for another staying in San Francisco, because the excellent staff let me feel like at home.
