Outdated, uncomfortable bed. Nice view. Nice staff. Parking difficult

Clean, quiet, good location, nice spread for breakfast. We would stay there again.

The hotel was within walking distance to many places.

I wouldn't call it luxurious, but the amenities are great for a hotel in this affordable price range. The rooms are a decent size and all have a refrigerator, real coffee maker (the kind with a glass carafe, not the kind that only fills one small cup) with tea, coffee, creamer, etc., hairdryer, ironing board, fast WiFi, and plenty of electrical outlets conveniently located near the beds and tables. There are a sunroom and a balcony on the 3rd floor and a garden in the back. Continental breakfast is served in the lobby in the mornings and is a grade above the last place I stayed that basically served Costco muffins and coffee and charged the same amount per night. I would stay here again.

Great price for a stay near the Marina. Walk down to Chubby Noodles for a great dinner.

room really needed an upgrade. was in a loud room on Lombard street. manager was nice to let me use his parking spot

Very spacious room. Free parking (however the parking garage is TIGHT).

Close to everything. Rooms clean, free parking and good customer service.

Great hotel, friendly staff and nice to be able to park!

Has Access to major highway, located in good area

Great location for biking and walking at a reasonable price.

I arrived at 2am and had to knock on some glass to get someone to attend to me. The room I got was spacious and clean and had all the amenities I needed for the night. It was funny in the hallway cause it says "STAIR" instead of "STAIRS" so obviously this hotel is run by non-English natives and is meant for tourists, But for pricey SF this was a good deal on the night I needed a room.

Parking garage is a nightmare, staff had to take keys if you blocked someone in. What if the staff bumped into another car etc

Needs updating, tub/shower were disgusting. Parking was limited. Outside deck was great!

Great spot, the Hop on Hop off bus right out front. Parking is really tight. Wished it had a microwave.

great and cleanest room, great breakfast, very central location
