This was a great place to stay for the price. The staff was SUPER friendly and helpful! Breakfast was boring after the 4th day of the same simple things but for the price, it was well worth it!

Great for GDC

I got this hotel for GDC. It's fairly cheap and is only a 20 minute walk from Moscone Center. Free wifi and a microwave. There are a couple nightclubs just a block away if you're into that, and a Trader Joes also a block away if you need nearby food. It didn't look like it had a lot of parking spaces, but it didn't matter to me since I walked everywhere. Room isn't huge, so it could get cramped if you're bringing in roommates to cut the cost, but it was fine for me by myself. I would definitely stay here again!

Look elsewhere for better deals for the money

Old & sleazy. Clunky and noisy AC/Heater units. But friendly staff and good location. Not much to say, but there could be a lot better places for this money.

Friendly people

The staff was very helpful and welcoming. The inn is very near a MUNI bus stop and only a short, interesting walk from a BART station.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

It is very easy to come back to the inn from all over downtown. All you need to do is get to the CalTrain station, and jump on the Number 47 bus, which originates right across the street from the CalTrain station. Get off at 9th Street.

Friendly hotel Staff

So the hotel is in a great location. Close to many of the bars I frequent :) Hotel management is very nice!! Also very accommodating. Hotel room is a little small but cozy. Definitely can't beat the price. Free breakfast and parking! Definitely a plus in SF. I will definitely be returning.

Beware

Booked room for one person. Ended up with 4 people on the trip. They charged me an extra $$$$ (price omitted) to get a room with a second bed when I arrived. I have booked a room for one person at other hotels and as plans change arrived with more, but i have never been charged. I do not believe the charge was fair as the way the front desk person explained to me.

Run for your life

I was there for 2 days.The room was extremely musty, small and the stairway unkempt.[...]The "continental break fast" was 2 stale muffins on a tray.As low as this place costed it was still a rip off. I would not stay there for free if I could help.Although the second day customer service was better it was too late.
