The hotel location is excellent. You can walk 3 or 4 blocks to virtually everything; BART, Cable Cars, and bus. Taxi is right outside the door. This hotel is old and the rooms are very small, but they are clean and perfect if you don't plan on spending a lot of time in it. The staff at the front desk...

If you want to pay an outrageous amount of money to stay in a filthy broom closet, surrounded by San Francisco's finest free range homeless & junkies, then this place is for you. We got to see some real crack cocaine, and enjoyed watching the locals kicking over trash cans into the street. Not for families, but if I have...

Went there for a meeting at convention center. It was close enough to walk. To say hotel was bare is an understatement. Rooms so small had difficulty walking to bathroom. Not meant for business nor pleasure stay. As last resort, maybe.

Amazing place to be in if you want to visit SF. The rooms are small but unless you have Claustrophobia, it is a great hotel to be in. Free breakfast, in-room coffee maker and hi speed interned, all really worked for me. And the staffs were really helpful and friendly. Would stay again!

This hotel is disgusting. Rooms are extremely small and smell funny. Bugs flying throughout room. Hairs on all sheets, along with stains on sheets. In our room you can look out window into neighboring apartment or room. So we kept curtains closed entire time. Elevator sounds and looks as if it will break down any minute. Don't think they have...
