This hotel is cheap for one reason. It is very bad and the photos do not show how bad it is. This is a very old run down hotel that you should avoid at all costs. We arrived after the check in time and our allocated room had still not been serviced after the last guest left. This room stunk of cigarette smoke so after complaining we got another room. The rooms are very small and in dire need of refurbishment. The beds must be 20+ years old and the towels are not much bigger than a big hand towel.

Hotel was OK, but in need of some TLC. Rooms tired with a grubby carpet. Breakfast is ok in a quaint room with seating for only 6 people. Well located with good access to the BART system. A good price for SF but expensive for what you get.

I used to use this motel as a regular place to stay when visiting San Francisco from Monterey. It used to be about $90 per night; then went to about $110. I don't know if it even has the same owner, but the friendly managers are gone. It is only worth about $120 max and I will not stay there for any more than that. Sorry, I'll miss the place, but someone has gotten greedy with the rest of the Bay Area real estate market.

My granddaughter graduated from high school and as a gift we took her to California. We reserved our rooms the beginning of the year and they were paid for at that time. We were in San Francisco and got a text message that we no longer had rooms as the hotel had overbooked. We called hotel.com and were informed that there is nothing they could do if the hotel decided to cancel our reservation at the last minute. Hotel.com did help us find rooms at another hotel. This is very unprofessional as we had these reservations months in advance.

Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments regarding your recent stay. Please accept our most sincere apologies for the challenges you experienced with regards to our overbooking problem. We can understand it is frustrating to see this happen especially when you planned the trip well in advance and for a special occasion such as this. We have a new ownership/management in place and we work with many third party booking services. We encountered overbooking issue after our management took over so we may have had to cancel. Please accept our sincere apologies. This is certainly not the normal high level of service we provide for our guests. Please know that your experience does not reflect the overall performance of our property when it comes to service. We would love the chance to welcome, and impress you when you are next visiting the area. Best wishes, Hotel Management.
