Decent Place, Ratings are Pretty Accurate
The hotels location was decent because of the proximity to the Golden Gate Bridge and nearby neighborhoods. The hotel itself needs some TLC as its better days are behind it. The staff was friendly and courteous.

Good 6.0
Great location but expensive place!
The staff were kind enough to let us into our room an hour ahead of check in, and the room was clean with a very comfortable king size bed. But the TV kept cutting out all evenings (3), and the water pressure was minimal, very low, although I was grateful that we got hot water! The breakfast was good, but no hot food, except to toast bagels, and the location was really good, a 20 min walk to Fishermen's Wharf going!

Great hotel
Great hotel! Great location! Great staff! Great price! Great breakfast option! Great amenities! If you haven't figured it out yet, I really like this hotel. This was my 2nd stay. Went to San Francisco to meet some friends from Florida for a 50th birthday celebration. They made sure we were on the same floor. Allowed my friends to check in at 1AM, as they had a late arrival flight. And allowed us to check in early, as we had a morning flight the next day. It was convenient to many destinations, you can walk to Fishermans Wharf and Ghirardelli Square. Hop on/hop off bus stops right in front of hotel. Easy Uber stop. Also, FREE parking, almost unheard of in San Francisco. This will definitely be my go to lodging option whenever I go to San Francisco!! Thanx so much!
