Ok but pricey for neighborhood

It was fine but the neighborhhod is seedy. Lots of homeless but that is common for SFO. I think the price was too high for the neighborhood and I didn't see good restaurant choices nearby. Staff were nice and very accommodating. Walk to the BART.

Comfortable, great location

Friendly people, clean rooms, great location. Parking an extra $40+ should come with the price of the room.

Good One-Night Stay

My husband and I stayed here for one night before heading out to the airport. We enjoyed the hotel - it was clean, comfortable, and quiet. The hotel has a parking garage attached, which is an additional charge for the night. Overall, this hotel was a good price for the stay.

Great get away!

My stay there was great! The staff was really friendly and accommodating and willing to help. We went to go see the Lion King musical and choose this place because it was about 2 minutes away from the theatre and because it was affordable.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

San Francisco is a small but vibrant city and this hotel puts you in the center to all it offers. The area can be sketchy but parking is secure and you must have a room key to access building entry and any floor with rooms from the elevator.

Good value

For the price, not bad at all. Newly remodelled Lobby and Retsaurant/Bar; very sleek and modern. Rooms need some updating but very clean and quiet. Bathrooms newly remodelled, very nice. Location not the best neighborhood but close to Civic Center where I had business.

Great for an Active Weekend

This hotel is just that - a hotel. The beds are comfy enough, the rooms were clean, and the bathroom functional if spartan. The wifi worked fine, but the rooms are poorly configured for working (one table, not near an outlet), but you should be out having fun, not on the computer. The great thing about this place is the location: it's central to everything (except Golden Gate, but that's an easy BART ride).

Blue Bottle Cafe on Mint. It's hidden, and the best coffee in the city.

Accessible location for SF

Pricey but easy access to downtown via muni. Staff was helpful but not overly so. Pictures of the pool were not a good representation.
