The only thing “organic” about this place was the huge pile of human excrement artfully deposited just by the front door. The previous day that same spot had been occupied by a homeless man on a full size mattress, snoozing in the way of the front door. When someone finally came to open the front door, I was given a fourth floor room and told the elevator was broken and I’d have to carry my four heavy bags up all the way. Thank god for Roberto, the handyman, who helped me with the heaviest bags. The room itself was tight and cramped, the halls smelled and the neighborhood was dubious at night. Way too expensive for what they offer.
This has been the most horrendous experience in my life, and I travel a lot. Dirty floors, briken parts in the bathroon, dirty bed sheets, NO pillow cases, the carpet in the horrific halls are all tainted with horrible spots, the halls smell like pee. I had only seen something like this in crime series on T V. Smoke detectors are broken and covered with tissue… reallly unsafe, and horrible. I can’t understand how are they still in business. . No employees working on site. Really hard to describe what I just experienced.
Absolute schit. Either add more money into your travel budget and go to another hotel. This place can't even be the last resort. Roaches, not following COVID protocols, I saw people literally moving in with their pillows, no employee. If you're ready to book this place, book Marriott or Hilton for $350/night instead because you will end up spending another $200 at another hotel and not get this one refunded.
Absolute junk place. Don’t stay here even if it is free. Photos are deceptive. Worst hotel of my life. Please please don’t stay here. It takes paragraphs to write how scary place is this. Everything is broken. Scary. Photos looks like it is a boutique hotel. No front desk. I am so mad that I stayed here. We thought of walking out but it was late and we decided to stay. Both of us didn’t sleep whole night. I will ask for full refund with snaptravel. I wish I could give negative stars instead of one star.
So many problems with our room. A BROKEN smoke detector with tissues stuffed in it, mold on the ceiling, sheets with holes, broken and dangling vent over toilet, NO AC and many more disappointing aspects. There was also no iron or hangers in the closet. The lobby is cramped and staff is not great with hospitality. The only positive was a semi-decent shower and mattress.
The employees went beyond expectations: they were very helpful, and addressed my requests promptly and politely. The residential neighborhood was quiet with many food stores, restaurants, coffee shops. Clean Great deal/will be back!
Feel free to read through this page for many reasons as to why this hotel is terrible. They're also scam artists and will lie to you in order to charge you more money. Motel 6 is a better option. If the management of Calista organic hotel are reading this review, I hope you understand that you're setting yourself up for a huge lawsuit. Stop doing this to people, and buy some new sheets for your beds.
Nothing seems to work. No iron, half of lights work, the elevator doesn't work, the washers and dryers are out of order. The sheets were stained and ripped. The towels weren't clean. Me and my boyfriend bought a sheet set and a comforter. The bed itself didn't have a mattress protector and is full of stains, see the photo. Having to go up and down 3 flights of stairs after walking 2 blocks from the garage was enough to make me want to go home. Unfortunately we had a film to shoot the next day in the area and needed to stay close to the set. Honestly, not worth it. Room 302 was a mess. Also, it was missing the smoke alarm and wires were exposed. That may be a fire code violation. They should do better. I will avoid this hotel from here on out.
This hotel was DISGUSTING!! Trash and abandoned cars out front, dirty hallways, my room had a dirty lamp shade, no cover on the trash can, dirty sheets with someone else hair on it and yellow stains, I wasn’t given a wash cloth, holes in the pillows, water damage in the bathroom and the MOST alarming a broken smoke detector with the wires hanging out of it !!!
We booked this hotel for one night, $115 total which I know is insanely cheap for SF. Pretty much every hotel is on sale right now so we figured it would be a budget hotel experience in a decent environment (for example, the Hilton was around a similar price point). We were in the city for Memorial Day Weekend and wanted to spend a night after seeing friends. I had zero expectations since it was just a place to sleep and relax after a busy day. I read the reviews after it was booked and saw that it was ranked near last out of every hotel in San Francisco. I knew we couldn't cancel so hoped for the best. Take it from me, the negative reviews are all true. We checked in and went up two floors of a dark and dirty staircase and found our room. Here were the major issues that made it (for us) impossible not to leave... -Sheets were dirty and stained -Fan had layers of matted hair and dirt stuck in it -TV had no remote and couldn't be turned on -No soap -Smelled like cigarettes and mold -200 sq feet (which to their credit, is disclosed, but when it's filthy and stinks, feels way worse The straw that broke the camels back and this is 100% true...I go to open the window and on the floor above us, in a room facing ours, a man suddenly comes out his window. His is going to smoke a cigarette on the roof/window sill and is clearly high out of his mind. Eyes bulging, cracked out. He is wearing nothing but combat boots and underwear. I'm assuming he was making meth given the outfit but it was too much to stay. This experience was in the afternoon so we assumed it would only get crazier at night. We left the hotel after that and ate the $115. We exited the building and there was a man smoking crack in a corner by the front entrance. DO NOT BOOK HERE.…
