Me and my wife stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our California road trip - you can't go wrong with this place i.m.o., the reasons being:
It's very close to places to eat and drink, and there is a cable-car stop close by. Easy to get to the waterfront and all the main sights by bus or on foot if you are in good shape. You're gonna walk a LOT no matter where you stay in SF, I recommend getting a new pair of running-sneakers (I got them there, shops and malls are 3 min. walk down the hill).
When booking by email I asked for a quiet room at the back of the building as the main street is a relatively busy one. They took care of this and Ryan, the frontdesk guy on duty when we arrived was extremely helpfull with our enquiries. A free map was supplied by the hotel and they were always very good at giving info and directions.
Room & bed was clean and the place looked well maintained - no small feat as most places in SF in this price bracket will not probably not be as clean.
All the above points put this place well above other similarly priced hotels in the centre.
Breakfast was fairly low key for someone like me who likes yoghurt & fruit (you'll find neither here - though go to the store next door and you can get anything extra you want and bring it to the table).
But with a selection of cereals, store bought bread, peanut butter, jam, muffins, cookies and boiled eggs (they eat 'em cold in the US), even the most difficult eater will find smth to get them started. The coffee was good I thought, and they had juices and tea on offer too.
A nice touch - you can watch the news & weather in the breakfast area.
For the price I'd say all in all excellent value in an expensive city such as San Francisco.
