I stayed here using fewest reward points. Free wifi was fast. My room was big but very smelly & rundown. The lady who checked me in at night was not friendly. This hotel made me think of the scene in Silent Hills video games/movies.

This hotel is really awful! The room was dirty and smelled terrible. Towels and bedsheets were partly ripped. The bed gave us the worst backaches ever. The clerk was a kinda sweet old guy, but his English was terrible and he couldn't help us with the easiest things (for example: Where is the nearest Starbucks?). The free parking is a...

Fairly basic for the cost of the room. The location is very good, near the Golden Gate Bridge and the art museum. The rooms are quite dated and in need of doing up, although there is a sign saying 'brand new rooms', so this might be in progress. What I can say though, is the owner / manager is incredibly...

I am sitting on the floor of my room right now as I type and it smells of something between mildew and vomit. I want to give this hotel a better rating, but it is clear that the owners are not wanting to do what it takes to really make this place right. I booked it for a cheap rate...

Stayed here for two nights. Was given a room on the ground floor near the pool. Was dark and dingy so asked if they had anything better. After paying an extra $25 was given a room on the top floor of the other building. This was at least better but everything was so old and falling apart. Curtains needed to...

I have to say, when we arrived we had a very warm welcome....when we entered the hotel we were a little shocked at the bad decor of the hall...as we went up the stairs it seemed to get worse...we did laugh as we lugged our heavy cases up to the third floor...a little apprehensive of what we might find when...

Never ever go to this hotel!! The owner is the rudest, most impolite and impulsive person, I have ever met in my life. he does not have any modesty! At check in they made a mistake and charged our credit card with 1833 dollar instead of 183 dollar. We asked them to write a fax to our credit card company...

We were horrified by the state of the entrance to the block our room was in. The carpets were litter strewn and badly stained and the smell was indescribable. In our room the bed sheets looked clean and so did the bathroom but the carpets and chairs were stained and filthy and the smell of something being masked by disinfectant...

I booked this place based on Trip Advisor listing it but this place was very dirty and unpleasant. We left after fifteen minutes and demanded a refund, which was reluctantly granted only after we listed the problems in the room in detail and said that we would dispute the payment with American Express if he did not refund our payment....

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.
