Very good

A very pleasant and inexpensive hotel located in the heart of San Francisco. It is easy to get to from the Powell St. BART stop. A very good buy.

Noisy but nice

The Beresford Hotel was very charming, well decorated but unfortunately a bit noisy. There was no bath tub in the room, no table and no chairs, not very practical for the price.

Location

Great location - within walking distance to many attractions. Quaint but small older hotel - reminds me of an English lodge. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good bargain for the money.

Nothing Fancy, Great Location

I chose the Beresford Hotel for Location, not intending to spend much time in the room. The room was fine.An old-fashioned city hotel with all the basics. Not luxurious but clean and adequate. The staff was helpful. We did not eat in the hotel restaurant.The location is great for walking around the city. Overall good value.

very friendly environment for families and business aswell

I was very happy staying in the hotel, it was fun, and also right in downtown, the hotel looks like an old hotel, but it is really well maintained, and adds to the city style. it is not a huge hotel, but it gives it the more familiar feeling, so I liked it, I would recommend it to friends and family, it was not too expensive either, and have breakfast incl.

Good location, great price

The Beresford Hotel on Sutter is only 2 blocks from Union Square, with plenty of shopping, restaurants, cable car stops, etc. Couldn't beat the price for such a location in SF. The room was small and no view at all. That didn't bother us as we were there to sightsee and get out, not laze around in the room. Continental breakfast was included and provided in small restaurant off of lobby. It was quite good with tons of fresh fruit, pastries, cereal.

Get maps/brochures from lobby for ideas on sightseeing if you don't know. Alcatraz visit is very interesting.

Heart of the City

If you want to be near the hustle and bustle of central SF, then this is an excellent place to stay. Particularly if you enjoy the shopping of Union Square, then Hotel Beresford is in a prime location -- just a block and a half from the square itself. China Town is a short walk as is the SFMOMA and the Powell Street BART station. There isn't exactly a pelethora of night time entertainment spots; however, considering my relative inexperience partying in SF, there were plenty of establishments (upscale and low scale alike) in the neighborhood. The hotel was very clean, and even though the room was a bit small, I found the place to be quite comfortable and pleasant. It certainly beat the big chain hotels' lack of warmth and comfort.

Modestly Perfect

An older hotel but very well maintained. Travelling on a budget made this place a great choice. Rooms are small but clean and comfortable. Staff is knowledgable and helpful, and the White Horse (tavern downstairs) is very charming. I would definitely stay here again.

Great location

This was a comfortable, charming Victorian-styled hotel with a great location. The only complaint was lack of storage in the bathroom since there was only a pedestal sink. We'd stay there again and recommend to friends.
