    The room was not luxurious, but it was comfortable and had everything we needed. The area around the hotel was a little sketchy, but we never felt unsafe in the room or in the lobby. The price was right; I was there for the marathon and most hotels had jacked up their prices. We had our own bathroom that was clean with hot water and good water pressure. A heater that worked and a comfortable bed. The wifi was pretty good and the tv worked fine. They stored our luggage for us after we checked out for a few hours.

    The staff---some were very friendly and accomodating, others not so much. We were told we had a late checkout (1 pm) and that it would be noted in the computer; I requested an additional hour, since I didn't know how long the race would take and how long it would take to get back. I was told to ask the person working in the morning. That person was extremely rude and told us noon max, contradicting what we already had agreed upon the night before.

    The location is great for my travel needs. Located near the Opera and Symphony, and not too far away from some great night clubs.

    One person on staff is very rude. Someone made a mistake with my reservation that made $1000 of my own funds unavailable for my birthday weekend. When I went to the front desk to ask about it the man was like "Whoops. These things happen. Too bad." Had I not had the funds available, I would have suffered mondo bank fees.

    This place is a dump. It is surrounded by homeless and drug addicts. Felt very unsafe trying to catch a cab. The sink was broken, the springs on the mattress could be felt. I think the bedspread was 20 years old and very well used. It was so bad we left within 2 hours of checking in. Despite raising our concerns, they charged us for the night anyway. Places like this are the reason there are bedbug outbreaks in the us.

    Had two other guest voice similar concerns to above.

    clean, great location and very reasonable for City rates.

    The room looked like it were straight out of 1977! The bed was lumpy and uncomfortable and I was in fear that I would be bit by bed bugs. The rug in the room was filthy. Will Never book here again.

    It was inexpensive

    This is an old hotel that has seen better days. The neighborhood is kind of dicey, although there are a few decent restaurants nearby. Rooms on the street are noisy. Water pressure in the shower was very low. It's a long hike to Union Square or the Castro or GG Park or other areas you might want to visit. We chose it because we had a last-minute change of plans and were trying to be kind to our budget. If you have other optiins, I would recommend that you try them.

    The hotel retains its film-noir era charms accented in the present.

    Expect noise next to a non-stop bus route.

    For the price I paid,this hotel is fair enough. It located near a homeless shutter. I don't feel dangerous at all actually. My advice is that I dont recommend girls walk alone during night time.

    The location was decent for walking to most destinations.

    The woman at the front desk was extremely rude, there was no fridge in the room, the room was tiny, our room was right next to the elevator which made a ton of noise,it cost an extra $21 /day for parking which was the only real option, and the elevator was so old I thought we were going to crash.

    The hotel is fairly inexpensive for San Francisco. It is located at the edge of the Tenderloin district. The good thing about this district other than the homeless people is that the food around the area is relatively inexpensive.
