“Enjoyed my stay here”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

I arrived late at night and apart from having a security buzzer on the door arriving at this time of night was not a problem. The lady was very friendly and helpful and much appreciated after such a long trip.

The room was very good, breakfast also good, staff really helpful - lots of information with regard to arranging trips etc.

This is an excellant location as you can walk downhill to the water front and along to all the piers i.e. pier 39, Fisherman's Wharf etc. then you can get the cable car or bus to other points of town. If you take the cable car it pays to get a three day pass or whatever time suits you and you can get off at Lombard Street (where the zig zag road goes down!) and walk down to Van Ness and the hotel - BEWARE - Do not wear heels!!

There is a couple of stores nearby where you can get snacks etc. and a laundry right next door (not self service).

Room Tip: I was on the 10th floor but as I did not pay extra for a harbour view it did not matter!

This is the place for families and comfort. Walking Distance to cable Cars, Guiridellis, and the Wharf as well as The Crooked street-Lombard! We had a suite of two rooms which was reasonably priced and worth it in terms of price, size and privacy for families. My teen enjoyed her own living are with a pull out sofa!! Very clean place as well as helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast could be better.

Room Tip: Nice walk to the Wharf. Clean rooms.

Good value, decent clean rooms and breakfast buffet but nothing to set the world on fire. Having said that, a well placed base for exploring San Francisco and did what we needed.
Breakfast buffet was fine but not massively inspiring. But then it's essentially a budget hotel.

Wish there were a way to give half points on tripadvisor. This hotel was clean and had a good location. The front desk was helpful and knew the city well. Those are the things that would get 4 points from me. On the 3 point side, the rooms are in need of some updating. Also, they charge $26 a day for you to self-park your car in underground parking with no security at all. This is on top of your room rate, which isn't cheap to begin with. Hotels in San Francisco are pricey, so the room rate is pretty much in line with other hotels. I would probably return here due to the location.

Room Tip: The room charge for rooms with a view of the Golden Gate is higher. We opted for the city view, whi...

We loved this hotel good location clean hotel
Breakfast is adequate and started the day off well
Wifi is good and parking is available at about $26 per day which is a bonus but some of the spots in the underground parking are a bit tight if you have a SUV we had a ford escape and was a struggle to get out off
I had contact with the front desk on a few occasions and found them friendly part from one gentleman who was very sharp with his answers and did not really have the customer service ethos I expected from a front desk employee
Also I am still waiting for my holding money to be refunded to my card and it has been almost two weeks now and I am still waiting for this
Other than that I am happy with this hotel and if we did visit San Fran again we would not hesitate in using this hotel again

Couldn't properly sleep because the traffic and the night club in front were too loud. Breakfast offers basic stuff but nothing special. We've had a nice view on golden gate. Walking distance to Fishermans wharf. Too expensive. For sure there are better hotels available for that money.

we were in the hotel for 8 days.great view from the room towards the golden gate bridge. the breakfast is quiet good. although kind of boring to eat the exact same food every day. no vegies at breakfast but there are eggs yogurt fresh bread cakes waffles and fruits. the hotel is located 15 minutes of walk from pier 39 and not 5 minutes as was written in several reviews. there is convenient public transportation nearby. Refrigerator costs 25 $ aday which is alot of money for 8 days...200. $. We enjoy our staying very much
