First of all, I review things for what they are. This is not the Ritz, let's just start there. If you are expecting immaculately clean walls, some grand cooked to order breakfast, and some 4 star room service, the Argonaut is a great choice at about 200 dollars per night extra.
This little slice of home is absolutely fantastic for what it is. It's really inexpensive, quaint, and full of personality.
My husband and I stayed for 2 days coming from Arizona. We got in at 2am, no problem. The guy at the check in counter was so nice, he was asking about our evening and stopped to say "I'm sure you guys are spent and want to lie down, I'll stop talking, here's your key." haha Cute. We were spent. We get in, check the place out. Tiny bathroom, cute little kitchen area with teacups and everything, and an oddly HUMONGOUS walk in closet. It was crazy big. Weird. The bed was not very comfortable. And it was a double, but that's what I asked for so no complaints here. I saw someone comment on how tiny the double bed was. Uhmmm... it's a double bed. They're small.
Anyways, we hit the sack, and got up the next morning bound for Haight street. The breakfast had a very surprisingly wide selection of food. We ate muffins, toast, skipped the hardboiled eggs, and I think my husband had a scone. There were 6 different kinds of tea, coffee, and OJ. I had the tea. It was delish. Back at the room, I needed an iron, called the front desk, and they had one for me! woohoo! The lady at the front desk told us the best way to get to our destination, and we were on our way. That night went on without a hitch. We popped in at about 10, got our stuff and back later on for the night.
Next morning, we used the absolutely adorable computer station on the 2nd floor. Then my husband used the computer and I sat and read one of their books from their bookshelf and sat on the comfy couch next to the computers overlooking the lobby. I was blown away by the cuteness of it all. Seriously.
Our whole stay was great, but then I lost my wallet! I was so bummed, they didn't call me back after a couple days. I called and they still hadn't found it. Someone had stayed in our room and they still hadn't found it. But then they FOUND IT!! The sweet lady at the front called to let me know, and she mailed it out! Yaaaaay!!
Bottom line is we love this place. We couldn't have had a better experience.
