I have a number of issues with The Mosser, and it starts with that they should state clearly on their website that rooms are NOT air conditioned. I'm guessing this could be a big issue for those with allergies. Secondly, they state on the website that muffins and coffee are available in the lobby in the morning, and on our first of five mornings there, I went to the lobby and was told that they no longer offer that service. Third ... if your looking for the robe that is offered in each room - forget it. They are not to be found and that service too is not offered. On the 3rd eve. of or stay, we noticed that our towels hadn't been changed, so we called the desk. A maintenance person brought shower towels promptly, but no face towels or wash cloths. (I guess we should have been more specific with our request?) And last, if you in fact choose to stay at The Mosser in spite of everything, request they not book you on a room along the alley. The homeless of San Francisco camp there and rummage the dumpsters all night, banging the lids. The only thing that is making me give The Mosser a (2) rather than a (1) is it's location. They are about 5 blocks from the end of the line for the trolley which would take you to Fisherman's Wharf, we walked to Chinatown, Coit Tower, and there is a Trader Joe's (groceries, etc.) right next door.

There is NO way this is a three star hotel. The room is so small I can probably lay on the floor and have my toes on one wall and touch the opposite wall. The sink is not even in the bathroom. I almost got up the wrong time because the clock is an hour off. The room does not get dark because light shines in from above the door from the hallway. There is no thermostat in the room. The lumpy bed isn't even made with a fitted sheet. There is some button halfway behind the bed's headboard that I am going to guess used to turn on the ceiling fan, but whatever the case I can't figure out how to turn on the ceiling fan. And note the time of this review. I am sending it now because I am having trouble falling asleep. Again, no way a 3 star hotel, best case 1.5 and that is kind. Oh yeah, at the check in counter is says they will give you a $25 gift card if you leave a trip advisor review. I think reviews have obviously been bought or faked and you guys fell for it and I paid the price.

The room was very clean. The people working at the front desk were very welcoming. It’s quiet when it comes to the noise that’s coming from outside the hotel. However, you could still hear people walking down the hall or talking to each other from time to time which is not that big of a deal if you have your headphones on. All in all, I really liked staying at this hotel. The neighborhood feels safe and everything is walking distance from the hotel (restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, retails stores etc …). I would definitely recommend it to other people especially if you are someone who want things to be organized and tidy. Great stay !!

좀 낡은 곳이긴 하나, 위치도 괜찮고, 무엇보다 데스크 직원들이 매우 친절해서 편안히 며칠 샌프란에 머물다 갑니다. Though this was pretty old, but the location was nice, moreover, the staffs were so kind. Thanks to them, I could stay in San Francisco for a few days comfortably. Thank you.

Great location in SF (safe, clean, lots of restaurants & shops around). Next to Trader Joe's. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Only 4 stars as this is more of a boutique-y hotel and could use some upgrading. Wifi was also spotty and wish the rooms were a little bigger. But it sufficed and I'd recommend if you're travelling on a budget
