Older but Clean

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 15 Nov 2017
So, its a small place, the rooms are crowded, but they are very clean. We had a problem with water that leaked from a wall heater and soaked the carpet. We were moved to another room without hesitation. Very friendly staff. Nice that the parking was included for our rental vehicle.

Loved this little hotel. Very clean. Such nice front desk guy and cleaning ladies. Would definitely go back. So convenient to son living in L Seven apartments around the corner!
Being from a small town, I was a little "scared" of the big city. Lol. But not here, wonderful place. Spent 6 nights, will do so again for sure:)

Room tip: 2nd floor, very safe. Locked gate to go up.

The motel is just a few minutes past the Bay Bridge, and is pretty easy to find. They have free - but limited - parking. First come, first serve, but metered street parking is also available as long as you attend to prohibited days/times, or when meter enforcement is "on". We parked on the street, and had no trouble. In another city, this might be about a $40 motel - but not in SF! Everything worked in our room, including fridge and coffee maker (didn't try the microwave). The bathroom held a terrible odor that might have been a spill of a strong chemical? The room looked pretty tired overall, and the bed was overly firm and lumpy. Room windows look inward above the small parking lot (no views). Staff at the front desk were pleasant. Breakfast was very simple, but sufficient with yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, etc.

Room tip: Cheaper than most options in SF

If the outside doesn't scare you, wait until you walk to your room and then enter it. I can't remember the last time I saw an old school TV in a hotel. Then to see the iron and ironing board hanging prominently in the wall next to the TV. Enough said...

Was happy that there was a fridge and microwave in the room. Rooms are a bit out of date in decor but clean and no pests. Stairs only for room access. Good value for money and fine for comfort.
Traffic can be noisy but the AC units are good and not noisy so you can shut the window.
Great to have free parking even if it is first come first serve there is street parking overnight if you don't get a spot and the continental breakfast is generous.
We drove most places but transit is a bit of a walk. I liked the location.
Free wifi works well.
