Cozy at a great location

Very central in San Francisco, this hotel has one of the best values when booked online. Rooms are clean and comfortable, breakfast is very good if you wake up early. Could be rated 4-star for these. Has just what you need, and is just a few blocks away from some of SFOs hottest spots, bars, Union Square, Market Street and Chinatown.

Dec 2012 Stay

This hotel offers a lot for its price. Free continental breakfast is good. Rooms and beds are both big in size. Only negatives is no A.C. in room and location is a little rough otherwise I would stay here again.

Good place to stay

The hotel is located in the less glamorous area, however it seems to be safe and of no real concern. As usual, the traveler is responsible of his/her own conduct and consequences ... walking back from Union Square to the hotel you will walk by the homeless sleeping on the street and might meet younger people that might make you feel uneasy ... as I said, know your manners, safety and street conduct and you'll be safe. The hotel offers free shuttle to Union Square thus even getting back to the hotel in the evening is easily done. The staff is very nice and ready to help; the room quality is ok for the price, the basics are all there and the breakfast included is abundant and in variety. Room is clean, not exceptional, but clean overall.

Not bad for the price

Make no mistake, this is an urban hotel. But, for the price and the location, it is not a bad trade off, at least for business or budget travelers. Fairly close to BART's Civic Center/UN stop. I was on the 2nd floor, so there was a fair amount of street noise in the morning, and the neighborhood is not great, but I never felt unsafe or that I couldn't sleep.

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

The 8th floor has a very nice roofdeck with a view, where the breakfast is also served.

Great staff. but the hotel needs a little work

The hotel staff were very nice and helpful. They helped me find good places to visit for food and places to see. I loved that the hotel had shuttle transportation to and from Fisherman's Wharf and Union Square. All that aside, there's no free parking, so you have to pay $25 a day at the vale next to the hotel. Also, the room is pretty clean except for the marks on the walls and the way the tub paint peels off. None of these really effect the cleanliness of the room... the room is pretty clean, it's just a comment on presentation. Overall, the place is great!

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Take the shuttle to Union Square and ask the driver to show you where Sear's Fine Foods is located. The food is $$, but the people and the taste of the food is worth the price!

Good value

Far less expensive than equivalent hotels that are closer to Union Square. Good overall. Location not great, but not unsafe.

Comfortable and Reasonably Priced

The accommodations were comfortable with a friendly staff. Complimentary shuttles to/from Fisherman's Wharf were most helpful after many hours of walking hills. The proximity within walking distance to Union Square was an added plus, but you had to walk past some seedy characters to your destination. If you don't mind this, the hotel's per night charge is very reasonable. I would book this hotel again for my next trip!
