We just had two separate stays here on our recent west coast trip. Both visits were great. This is just the kind of hotel I like. If you want a glitzy bathroom with all the other big hotel trappings this is not for you. It's a little dated but clean and that's always the main thing for me. It's individual and the people were really friendly and helpful. There's free wifi throughout the hotel, although the signal was a bit patchy in our first room, and free use of the computers on the first floor with a printer for boarding passes etc.
The room itself had an ok rooftop view towards the downtown area and had flat screen tv with a comfy chair. Table and chairs for eating at and a desk for laptop use etc. Mini kitchen area with sink, fridge and microwave and cupboards with cutlery, wine glasses and crockery supplied if you want to eat in. Nice market next door for most food stuffs and plenty of local take out places within a block or so. Comfy queen bed - slept very well with no street noise even with the window open(room was on the 6th floor on the side of the hotel facing East I think).
Breakfast is help yourself buffet style and quite basic but really all you need. Cereal, juice, coffee and toast though no hot stuff. There was a microwave for heating oatmeal etc.
It's about a 10 min walk down the hill to Union Sq and a block from the cable car on Mason St.
We had a great stay at this charming hotel and will definitely stay here when back in San Francisco. It doesn't have a lot of the flash stuff of larger more modern places but it's just the job for a cheap and clean base from which to explore the city.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
