    Location was great.

    I felt unsafe. There was nothing clean about the hotel. It seemed like a "crack house".

  • Group of friends

    I liked the price and the size of the room.

    Very musty smelling, tub didn't drain, no mini fridge (inconvenient, but not a deal breaker in my book), and our room was right next to the ice machine which became very loud in the morning when people wanted ice.

    It was cheap

    I had to plunge my own toilet when it got plugged up. I had to fix a broken wire in a light and I had to fix the lock on the bathroom door.

    The location wasn't bad, quite accessible to transport. The beds were quite comfortable as well. Altho' no laundry facilities available at hotel, there was one close by just around the corner.

    There were no reviews available for this motel so we went in blind. Tap in bathroom broken for the duration despite numerous requests for repair. A variety of excuses were given. We were offered another room however we declined this as we had already unpacked and felt sure the tap would be fixed pronto. The toilet got blocked and the manager gave us a key to another room as he told us that it was the "maid's job to use the plunger". Breakfast was a choice of pre-packed danish offered in a plastic crate. Restaurant service next door, altho' open 24 hours, was woeful.

    Very convenient to downtown shopping / eating and Wharf shopping / eating. It's near several bus lines.

    I'd like a small room refrigerator.

    Good location - close to many city attractions.

    Complimentary breakfast was a joke - one very sweet cookie wrapped in a foil. That's all.

    very good location, close to the marina, restaurants.

    breakfast was a joke; no fridge in the room; not so clean and very dark place

    The office staff was friendly. There is an elevator which is a big plus. We stayed during Fleet Week, and we were happy to have a room for a reasonable price anywhere in San Francisco.

    Lombard Street is noisy twenty-four hours a day. Although our room was in the back, there was still a lot of street noise.

    good value for money, very helpfull staff! They have plenty of tips to discover the city. Very kind. Ideally situated to discover the city, parking available, busses nearby. Would recommend it to everyone!

    It was just a place to sleep

    Light bulbs burned out, one security lock broken, no lik for coffee pot so it did not work. The place was clean.

    great location in marina district.close to crissy field & bay.great eating choices & selections!! very level walking areas.

    It has a good location on Lombard Street. There is a bus close by that brings you to Ghirardelli Square. If you have a car, there is sufficient parkingplace at the hotel. It looks nice from the outside.

    We are travelling for more than 2 months through the USA and this was the worst motel/hotel we slept in. There was an awful smell in the room like wet carpet or a broken sewer. We checked in and let the door open for almost an hour but without any improvement. The smell remained. We stayed because we were tired and didn't want to look around for a new place to sleep. The springs of the mattress were terrible and doesn't allow you to sleep. There was a bad TV signal: snow. The breakfast is just one cookie. If you ask for coffee, they give you a coffee filter to brew your own coffee in your room. Overall: forget about the breakfast! There are much better alternatives on Lombard Street than this motel.

    Position

    Room not very clean and a bit cold at night. Radiator full of dust so didn't think it would be a good idea to switch it on as it gave bad smell.
