Location is the best thing.

The hotel is just too noisy with street noise from the events in or out of the hotel that were loud and noisy.

Dishonest Bellman

The room was fine, nothing to brag about, but not bad. The staff was friendly. We asked the Bellman to call a cab for us. He called an unmarked limo without a meter who didn't know the City, made us get out 5 blocks from our destination and charged us more than double what a real cab did door to door on our return trip. I have to believe the Bellman was getting a kickback. Management did not respond to my complaint. I can't recommend this hotel.

Older hotel

The room was adequate but old. The location was not very accessible to attractions in the area without taking some sort of transportation. The staff was disinterested.

Getaway

This Hotel is nice but not as nice as it could be. Its getting close for renovation because of the outdated fabrics and bathrooms. A bit over priced but the location for San Francisco adventure was really good. I will say that the Staff was very friendly and made my time there very pleasant. I would stay there again..

Quick Get Away

The hotel was clean, staff friendly, overall it was a good experience and the location was perfect for seeing all the sites at the wharf. Only complaint, I booked in the main hotel and was given a room at the annex so had to walk over, which was not a bad thing but not what was requested. Last night asked for a 3:00 am wake up call which never came. Overall it was a nice hotel. I would stay again. Thanks

Good location, not so great service

This hotel is located very close to a few attractions, you can walk or access to transportation. Amenities are just okay, some areas look like they need a renovation soon. Staff is friendly but they try really hard to sell you the tours, food service, etc hotel offers.

Breakfast at their restaurants is too expensive! There is a Denny's and another cafeteria around the block that serve pretty much the same for a lot less money.
