Not the greatest place to stay, but they are in the midst of remodeling. As for location I think it’s fantastic. Can’t wait for the remodeling to be done.

Location! Location!
The place is undergoing renovation it definitely need an update but its for value and location this place is a total gem. Walking distance from a lot of places plus FREE parking major plus since parking is about $60 a day around this area. Don’t worry if you forget something there is 711 across the street. Food OMG so many options

Exceptional 10.0
Great stay!!
Great hotel, great location. Walking distance to lots of great things. Hotel rooms are quaint! Beds are comfy. Would have liked some sort of bedside tables instead of a little ledge (one side was broken) but we moved some things around and made it work. My husband would have loved a coffee maker. Some rooms had them but ours did not. When we asked we were told no because of covid. Rooms had refrigerators but no microwave. There was a community one at end of hall. You can tell they are remodeling and some of the rooms are super cute. We stayed 3 nights and it would have been nice to at least have had trash collected. We called for fresh towels and they were brought promptly. Hotel staff very friendly and accommodating. Secured parking was a huge plus! We would definitely stay here again. My only complaint was the toilet was very low to the ground, and was small.

This place is a dump
Parking and location are great, the rest of the motel is pretty bad. Our room was not ready until an hour after check in. The room was clean enough. The vinyl floor planks are bubbling up. The. Towel rack was broken. The toilet would not flush properly. The shower was not draining properly so we were standing in a couple inches of water. We notified the front desk about the shower. We returned to our room after several hours and the shower was filthy, the drain was not fixed, and the door to our room was not shut all the way so our room was unsecured for who knows how long. We informed the front desk that the drain was not fixed and our door was left unsecured and they did not care. No one came back to attention fix the shower drain. We stayed for 3 nights and there was NO ROOM SERVICE. On the second day we requested clean towels and informed the front desk that our room had not been cleaned. We were told that they don’t do housekeeping and if we wanted clean towels we were supposed to throw the dirty ones outside the room door. There is no air conditioning, just a ceiling fan. Our room was hot and stuffy. The rooms are very loud. We were up all night because of the vehicles and the many homeless people yelling throughout the night. We will never stay here again. The free parking is not worth it.

Not Recommended
Positives - location and the free parking in San Francisco. That’s all for positives. Negatives are plenty: person at the front desk seems miserable. Get into our room and housecleaning did not get to it yet. Some complimentary weed was on the nightstand. So we get a new room. Filthy. Mattress cover has blood stains. Hair in the bathroom. Stains on the carpet. Table sticky. This place needs a lot of work. Too bad because the location is great and the potential is there. I do not recommend this place to anyone.
