Low value for high price. The only good thing is the location nearby transit and shopping malls.

The Stratford Hotel is undergoing some major renovations, so I expect some of the aspects I was "meh" about will improve. Strengths: Very clean, comfortable bed, great location, friendly staff. Weaknesses: Could have used a few extra amenities, like a small washcloth for my face and a pen (I know, I had to write something by hand!!!) The cable on the TV was a bit iffy for me. Even though this hotel is in an area with a thriving night life, I did not find it to be loud at all.

Location was great. Just a couple of blocks from the metro station. Centrally located. Property is old and clearly shows its age. Room is extremly small with limited movement in the bathroom

The toilet kept running and the light to the bathroom did not work at all

Liked: location. Safe part of the city at night. Room is small but clean. Comfortable beds. Reliable and fast free WiFi Disliked: rooms facing Powell St can be noisy. Choose a room facing small alley if you don’t mind the view but prefer quietness

Check in was a breeze. Room was clean but there was about an inch of gap on the windows which we cannot close. Good thing it wasn't that cold that night. We went out for breakfast the following day but when we came back, our key cards were already not working even though we still have a couple more hours until checkout. There was a cleaning lady on our floor but she doesn't understand basic english so she can't help. I had to go down again and ask the receptionist to activate the cards again. There were minor hiccups during our stay but the location is very accessible to everything.

It’s fairly cheap so don’t expect much. The place is a bit run down with just basic facilities. The day we checked in the internet wasn’t working until the next day. Location is

Super convenient location. 24/7 Walgreens down the block. Uber dropped me off right at the corner. Rooms will be updated per their note. WiFi was temperamental during my stay. I have stayed here several times so I knew what to expect - old school San Francisco hotel on Powell!

Cheap hotel with no AC, needed to open windows to breathe

The staff were really friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and perfect location.

Small room (note, no air conditioning, but ceiling fan and windows open), but well-kept and surprisingly well-appointed; everything necessary for an effective business or personal stay (I was there for business). Continental breakfast certainly adequate (fruit, cereal, coffee, pastries). Staff helpful- really a good option for not over-spending but still being close to Union Square, cable car line, Moscone Center, etc. Would recommend- and, bed was comfortable, always important!

This hotel has an excellent location: lots of shops and restaurants all within several blocks. The staff we met were all helpful and pleasant and we would definitely go back.

Tiny room but in a great spot, clean and works well as just a spot to sleep. Shower is very small... Be warned that free breakfast means coffee, cereal, muffins and toast.

The gentleman at the front desk was fabulous. He was so helpful in making sure we had everything we needed, including restaurant suggestions. The room was very small, but that was to be expected for San Francisco. It's a perfect spot if you plan to only use your room for sleeping and a quick shower. It was clean and comfortable enough. For the price point, I was pleased. The breakfast was very basic, i.e. orange slices, toast, cereal and coffee, but a nice bite before heading out to one of San Francisco's fabulous restaurants. Overall, great stay! I would definitely stay here again for a short visit.

Awesome hotel and for the price and location and the staff
