I was looking for an affordable hotel near SF also convenient for tourists without a car. I chose here based on good rating on tripadvisor.
I was on my way to this hotel, someone talked to me right near Coliseum BART station. He told me the shuttle will pick me up to BART station (I soon figured out there's no shuttle from/to BART station). Then he forced me to take a #73 bus. Before getting on a bus, he asked me for money.
The room was mediocre, not as nice as photos on their website. It's a good place to just sleep. Housekeeping wasn't perfect. When I used the phone, I found a crumb of cheese on it. Bathroom was relatively clean. Shower drained well, hot water temperature didn't stay constant. Minimum amenities, no hair conditioner and body lotion. Elevators worked a little bit slowly. Ice machines seemed rundown and not clean. On a positive note, the front desk staff was very helpful and professional.
There are tons of fast food and restaurants nearby - Denny's, BK, Taco Bell, etc. Wal-mart and another grocery store are in walking distance. But be careful of people hanging out in Wal-mart parking lot.
Only a couple of minutes walk to the bus stop. Just one stop to Coliseum BART station. It's easy to go to SF or downtown Oakland though you should get back before getting dark. Like front desk guy said, it costs $7 taking a cab from hotel to BART station.
Overall, this hotel wasn't bad considering the price. However, I wouldn't recommend staying here if your number one priority is being safe.
