Great Bang For Your Buck

I don't know what everyone was complaining about. It's a great little inn. If your looking for quality like you would get at the Hilton, then go there. Otherwise, this was a great little stay. Super close to all the attractions and sights, and if you get a room on the 4th floor facing the harbor you have a view of the Golden Gate Bridge. The room was super clean every time we came back for the day, and the staff has been nothing but friendly. TV, Microwave, Mini Fridge, Coffee machine in room and a community ice machine and vending machines.

New Years

The room was small for four people. The bed was uncomfortable and the room was not real clean. The staff was very helpful.

Great location

This hotel is walking distance to Ghirardelli Square and Fishermans Wharf. Staff was super helpful and friendly. They serve a complimentary "breakfast" which is mostly pastries and coffee. It's located on a busy street so if you're not okay with traffic noise then this is not the place for you. If you're looking for a clean place to sleep and shower then this is perfect. No extra bells and whistles.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Do eat at Home Plate for breakfast! It is about a 5 block walk from hotel, right across from Mels. They serve a complimentary scone with your breakfast too. Soooooo good!!

Good value for a hotel near waterfront

I selected this hotel mainly for the convenience of the location: walking distance from the piers. That being said, relative to other hotels in the area this was a great value. The staff was helpful in getting everything going smoothly in checking in and out. Free breakfast was nothing to write home about - just some factory items in the lobby! But who cares about that, really? The room was spacious (the bathroom especially) and clean. What else do you need?

Loud, dirty and generally unpleasant.

Biggest complaint: the loudness from all the action, traffic, party animals reverberates along this stretch of Lombard St and echoes into your windows all night. Closing windows cuts out about 50% of the noise, save for when a loud truck barrels through. The hotel provided a pair of ear plugs on each nightstand - anticipating, er, knowing they are required to get any sleep at all - Since you have to close the windows to drown out the mayhem that is Lombard; your only choice for circulating air is AC: which only had two settings, essentially: arctic and tundra chill. I hated staying here.
