Located in a super ugly are. We have never ever been in a hotel like this. I have never worried about parking. Therefore, I did not check on the reservation that parking was not included. Parking next door cost $30 a day. As we got in, the staff at the front was very rude, then the elevator is very old...

We were booked into the Layne and arrived a day late because we were tired and stayed at Big Sur. Completely unsafe neighbourhood. The place smelled terrible. The clerk on the desk was rude and wouldn't let us check in until 3pm despite us having paid for the day prior. He wouldn't even let us inspect the room. We left...

Don't think I will ever stay at this place again. Torn towels in the bath room. Bad lighting.This place looks ancient in a bad way. Bad elevator. Torn window curtains. The neighborhood doesn't seem safe at night. No air conditioning. Don't go in just because the rental might be lower than most hotels.The price is definitely not worth this place....

After our airbnb host ripped us off, we were looking for a CHEAP alternate since the city is so expensive. The staff are really friendly and helpful. They have their rules, none of which we have a problem with, and a steep $250 deposit, but our room is clean. I like old buildings like this and find the various stairways...

I read a few reviews here which contained good and bad reviews. I ended up deciding to stay here because it was cheap and I wanted to spend my money on a day trip instead. First impressions: My taxi ride there was a bit rough. My taxi driver said the hotel was between the nice and crappy (he used another...

I don't typically write reviews nor do I rely on them but this place is really bad. Staff is disorganized and very rude. Rooms are fine but not exactly nice. Price guided my choice. That being said, these guys are jerks and I don't recommend supporting them.

Location of this hotel is very close to union square. Very safe because front entrance door is always secured. Reception staff were very kind and polite especially Robin and Saed. They did their best to make our accommodations a great experience. We will consider this hotel again when we comeback. Our room was clean , with fridge and microwave. Thank...
