Adequate Stay

I have stayed at this hotel a few times this year. They have upgraded the bathrooms, so they are better than previous years. What bothered me most was that their advertisements free parking is mentioned in their ad. When I arrived they charges $10 extra. Many hotels in SF, of this caliber do offer free parking. When I mentioned to the check in person that I had never been charged before. Her response was, "Now we do. Are you going to park your car or not?"

so so

I put our visiting vendor at the hotel, after we dropped them off, I was worried about the safety and location of the hotel. It's not in the best area, but it was close to where they needed to be. I wouldn't recommend this for single women. there are other hotels that is similar in price but better. I would like to mention it was Holloween so area was even more crazy than usual.

Good location for GLBT gay venues

if you are not used to urban noise and some element of street people South of Market ( SOMA ) can be a mixed bag. In that the staff is nice and the rooms are fine, it's a good bet for gay bar crawl not sure I'd bring mom and the kids, some of the other travelers were too loud too late.

Growing with the neighborhood

I've stayed at this location different times over the last 8 years but i was shocked to see all of the changes. A few minor upgrades to the facade and interior and this place has changed from a rundown motel to a conveniently located hotel. Is it 4 stars? No. No would stay here again in a heartbeat. This area has really evolved over the past few years and this place has evolved with it.

Location is great for gay venues

The civic center is well located for Folsom Street Fair and Pride events. It is also convenient to SOMA bars and attractions. The area is, to a NON city traveler may seem very seedy or dangerous, simply keep your eyes open. I used to live in the neighborhood, lots of new buildings and still street people, mostly no problem but to people not used to urban life in SF it can make you nervous. I liked the place and would stay there again, very nice staff
