Hotel ist über 60 Jahre alt - wenig renoviert. Alles sehr veraltet - für den Preis lohnt es sich nicht

Ideal für Stoppover

Pros: Gratis Shuttle vom und zum Flughafen (ca. 15 Min.). Kleines Frühstück gratis.
Cons: Man hört am Morgen, wenn der Verkehr richtig losgeht, zum Teil die Lastwagen.
Location: Nähe Flughafen, ohne Auto kann man nichts unternehmen, aber die BART-Station (Zug) ist 1 Mile entfernt. Man ist in 30 Min. mitten in San Francisco.
Grosse Zimmer mit 2 Kingsize-Betten, gut ausgestattetes Bad.
