The hotel is located within walking distance of a cable car stop, the BART and buses to the wharf and Chinatown.
The neigborhood is not as bad as some have reported. There is the smell of "weed" throughout the city as it is used openly around most public areas. The homeless issue is citywide and some are becoming more assertive.
Despite the everyday noises associated with larger cities (emergency vehicles, bars emptying out at closing), we slept comfortably with the windows open (no a.c.)
The room and common areas werevery clean and the staff was quite friendly and helpful. The basic kitchen was adequate. However, the hotel shares the refrigerator with you with an "honor bar" that leaves little room for personal food.
We went to a Giants' game, spent a day at the zoo and another just walking around the city. We were able to use buses 75 cents, the BART or Muni system, cable cars and taxis, all within safe walking distance.
The breakfast included fresh fruit and pastries and the wine and cheese were served daily at 4:30.
Bring your own coffee and filters. There is a grocery store across the street with most food needs available.
We would stay here again.
