How do you charge $300+ for 1 night at this place?? I stayed in a penthouse in the center of business district San Francisco the same weekend for less. Location was not that great. Crappy motel

Stopped on our way back from Marin county. Rooms were fine but the bathroom felt kind of small. The inside of the rooms are clean but the outside passages look dirty. We booked a king bed and it was super-comfy. had a great night's sleep! However, it felt slightly over-priced at $129+. The Japanese restaurant across the street was great!

I admittedly did not bring my problems to the attention of the staff- but I can't believe that they did not already know. this was the worst hotel experience that I can remember ever having!

This hotel is a budget option for the area. It is very well maintained, and the furnishings are nice and in good condition. Our rooms were very clean. The best part was the wonderful, friendly staff. My only complaint is that the TP is exceedingly thin. Overall, it was a great option for us.

The first room was tight for 2 queen beds, and the airconditioner didn't work. The front desk had to switch us to another room the 2nd day. The 2nd room was more wider but the bathroom shower was pretty bad. Shower curtains were moldy and the faucet in the shower has hole on the side. Other than that I guess...
