This place was rated 3 stars. We went into it knowing that. It met our expectations. Great location, clean, good price. Staff were excellent. The bed was surprisingly comfortable. Nothing. Was exactly what we expected.
Bird poop on my car even though it's covered parking. Noise from garbage container cleaning at 10 pm and 7 am right below my room. Getting from parking to lobby is just sketchy.
Location Bed was not very comfortable, rooms were small, AC was bad and could not be adjusted after a point, bathroom light kept flickering, expensive parking, included breakfast was of a poor quality, no bathtub in the bathroom.
no air conditioning
The bed was exceedingly cozy, and the room was spacious. I don't know if all rooms are that spacious, or just the handicapped-accessible ones. The free breakfast was decent. There was a strange smell I couldn't really identify, which first reminded me of a grandparent's home. When I returned to my family, I was told I smelled like a bandaid, and that was similar to the room's smell. Not unpleasant, just disconcerting.
Front desk person was very helpfull. Carpet with stains and smelly.
Nothing Everything. Especially the manager.
The only thing I did not like is that the hotel os smoke free. The need to offer a place for guests to smoke outside
The hotel has a funny smell. I didn't like it.
Very affordable price (except parking ). The hotel is within walking distance of all kinds of great places: restaurants, bars, Union Square, Japan Town, etc. The bed are big and comfy! The ice machine was kind of hidden on the third floor. Kind of weird. Also, no fridge or microwave in the room.
The Opal is an older building with beautiful architecture and charm. To get into the lobby you have to be a guest, using your room key to unlock the front doors. I was so much more relaxed within the hotel with this added security. It is in an excellent location to good food and sight seeing and if driving, is easy to get to from 101 and they also have a private, gated parking garage! We will definitely stay at the Opal San Francisco in the future! Would recommend curved shower rods to give a little extra room. Because of being an older building the electrical outlets are minimal and had to do some rotation of electrical devices.
The staff was very friendly. The rooms were nice and clean. The continental breakfast was very good. And in a good location if you want to see the city.
Fiendliness of staff and security No tea making facility, paying for internet access, no breakfast included. Location on Market St was a bit scary while walking.
The hotel staff was helpful and friendly. Our hotel room was clean, quiet and we enjoyed the duvets on the bed. I would recommend this hotel to others. Close to transit with the bus and muni lines just outside of hotel. Only downfall about the hotel was there was hardly any restaurants close by. The attached hotel was ok - a little on the pricey side and not kid friendly. The restaurant staff was not friendly at all.There was about a 2 block stretch that was between the hotel and downtown. Lots of homeless - but nothing to be afraid of.
Location of the hotel Staff...very unpolite
The fact that it was so close to the street car pick up! The diner across the street was amazing! if you go there get the T- Rex.
The beds were very comfortable. The hotel should provide bottled water in the rooms for staying guests.
The room is big. The bed is comfortable. It looks long history. It was too noisy outside, maybe there is a anti-fire center nearby, for our sleep were broken by the noise every night. It was really terrible. And there was a door between two rooms each side with a lock. One night our neighbor was stranged by the door and tried to find things behind it. This made us uncomfortable.
Interesting and historical hotel near city center. Market Street is no longer so pleasant as it was before.
Location is central a little the wrong side of town but this is why it is cheap I thnk if you can go along with the crazies around its fine. Beautiful hotel well above its class rating with lovely staff Just the number of homeless people that seem to congregate near the hotel its fine if you can live with it they do make up the fabric of the city
was easy to get to Had to send breakfast back on a few occasions :-(
Not far from the city center Hotel is not clean, Looks old, Have to wait hours for very slow elevators, Wi-Fi almost nonexistent, Showers are in poor condition They charge you 5$ for calling the front desk!!!
We expected a two-star but it was a three star, right across from the Orpheum Theatre, not so far from Union Square, and the Manager quickly made a slight change to our booking when we asked.
Bell hop and concierge is often rude. Lots of homeless outside on market St but they are harmless. Security guards make sure trey don't come in.
Cleanliness of room and friendliness of staff Size of the room- too small
We liked the bed and the bathroom. It was kind of small but understandable in San Francisco. The neighborhood was very nice and there were plenty of places nearby that were reasonable to eat at. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had paid extra for a street-view room but did not get it. Instead we got free parking so, we didn't ask for a change.
Everything was perfect. Very clean, super friendly and helpful staff, also great location! No complaints.
The hotel's in a pretty good location with good access to public transportation. I was able to get around using buses, BART and the trolley out front no problem. It might not be the nicest part of town but it wasn't bad. I didn't feel unsafe at any point in the immediate vicinity. There were homeless around but I saw that in lots of parts of the city. When I got to my room, I was glad to see that it was spotless and bright. It was a very basic room but had everything I needed, with a couple nice little touches. The bathroom I had was large and clean with a jacuzzi tub (that I felt too bad to use... signs about a CA water shortage all around town). Bed was comfortable. The service at the front desk really made it stand out though. Ellen was incredibly pleasant and helpful and it made all the difference in my trip, honestly. She had spot-on recommendations and took the time to get a feel for what you might like. It was a little bit like having a friend in the city to help you get acclimated. I'm sure she wouldn't bother you if you're just looking for a place to stay, though. For what I paid, I'd definitely consider staying again on my next trip to the city. They give you a key to the front door that's $200 if you lose it and have to get it replaced! That was definitely an extra stress I didn't want to worry about on my trip. They need a light near the bathroom mirror. It was hard to see my face for shaving so I was pretty worried I had missed a spot. The road noise was a little annoying, but tolerable. I came in November, so maybe they just hadn't turned on the heat yet, but my room was pretty darn cold in the morning. It was fine for the rest of the day and at night though.
The staff was great. Recommended a nice dinner and breakfast spot for us. Very welcoming and the atmosphere was very relaxing. Showers had low water pressure. But other than that, everything was great.
This hotel was a great value for San Francisco. All the other hotels in the same price range had frightening reviews. My boyfriend and I were comfortable throughout our stay. Most reviewers mention that the rooms are small, but that wasn't so bothersome, as we literally were in the hotel just to sleep and shower. We would have liked if there were a small mini fridge (for leftovers and drinks) and a dresser, though.
The central location which had a lot of boutique shops surrounding it The staff didn't answer the phone when we were drivingaround to find the hotel, the rooms were bare bones with no amenities whatsoever, the parking is a slightly discounted lot about a block away ($15 a day)
Really friendly, helpful front desk staff. My room was very clean and comfortable. The window was only single glazed and overlooked Market Street, so it was a little noisy. Hanging space was also very limited.
Really pleased to stay at this boutique hotel right in the heart of the city. The location was great for getting to SOMA and the Castro. The room was cute. The staff was particularly great. Both Darren and Ellen were so friendly and helpful. This was a much better option than the Travelodge where I originally planned to stay. I stayed another day the following weekend because the place was so charming. There was a bit of road noise from being right on Market, but hey, you're right on Market. It was a bit hot which is rarity in San Francisco. Air condition could have been nice but I understand why the room didn't have it since hot days are so rare. These are really minor things you might experience with any hotel in the area
The staff and restaurant were excellent Being a guest and having to pay extra for parking. Makes staying in the city to expensive because you don't really want to walk anywhere in that area at night
Increased price at booking by 15%. Quoted price $135/night became $220 after increase, taxes, and enormous $42 parking fee. Tried to cancel, they wouldn't allow that.
Rooms looked fairly newly renovated. Homeless receive free services next door so they're everywhere and they're aggressive. NOT a place I'd bring a family to stay if enjoying SF.
Typical chain hotel amenities, and comfy bed. Good location. Housekeeping came in the room at 7am to me pushing them out saying come back later. If she had it her way she'd clean around me and make me into the sheets go get her job done. Hidden fees. Add $100 extra to your bill for "taxes and other costs". Parking is $50 a night
Parking garage is $45 Small restroom and no fridge
Staff was excellent. Area of the hotel. Not an area I would walk around.
Room had at least two flies at all times. Sheets may may not have been changed. Restaurant food was like pay x4 the price of Denny's but the same quality
ThemIss come into your room even when the privacy sign is in. She didnt eve knock just barged right in! Not comforting if your trying to leave your room at all while on vacation.
Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Rooms are clean, communal areas are clean. But its a basic stay, good for if you need to be in the area and do not require more than a comfortable bed. Location not ideal. Far from downtown. Room was made daily, though we expressed that an attendant should not enter the room (not a big deal).
Waking distance to a decent coffee shop and a bar Smelled like cigarettes in the lobby and chemicals in the room. Run down rooms. Didn't look clean.
Very noisy. People yelling outside the hotel and ambulance contsnatly driving by until 4am. Its an excellent hotel, unless of course, the guest wishes to sleep. I ended up checking out after night 1 of my three day trip to SF.
Good location for my purposes; and the price was right. Comfortable bed and clean bathroom. The desk clerk was friendly and helpful (a big difference from last year, when the former male clerk went out of his way to be obnoxious). The porno house across the street is gone. Very bad unidentifiable smell in the room. I was too tired to ask for a change, so have only myself to blame.
Rooms very small, expensive parking. Being pregnant it freaked me out seeing their big sign as you check in about their building having some prop and may cause birth defects, has an odd smell to it. Maybe old. But I would prefer my super 8 that I stayed I night before
The bathroom and beds were clean. We did not like the neighborhood and the smell inside the hotel. We felt very uncomfortable while walking on the street in the evening. The staff wasnt friendly.
The room was large with a refrigerator and huge closet. it was very close to the event we were attending. the pricing was not over exaderated and the room felt very comfortable the elevator was broke
Cute and comfortable! Loved the decor, thw rooms were cute, the bathtub was wonderful (i took a long bath) and the bed was clean and comfy. Easy walking distance to some yummy restaurants. My only complaint would be that when i went to check in, the staff at the front desk didn't show up for a good ten minutes. when they finally did show up they were rude- wouldn't make eye contact, didn't say hello...I'm not sure what his deal was but it was a weird interaction. but other than that one issue the hotel was a lovely stay.
central location / good quality for price / parking lot right next door
The hotel offer a good price, clean rooms, close to Polk St. and many cafes and restaurants. The location can be a little upsetting at night.
No bed bugs at least The staff at the Monarch were not helpful in the least. They watched as I struggled to load the luggage cart, watched as I struggled to get it into the elevator, failed to tell us where parking or the valet were, almost got my car towed, the valet damaged my car, the room was laid out so that I had to walk across one bed to get into the room, the toilet gurgled all night, and to top it off: the hotel is in a bad part of town across from the community center.
Very friendly staff, everything was clean and smelled nice. The room was not too small, and the bed was perfectly comfortable. Our bathroom sink did not have hot water.
Location Light bulbs that was burnt out
Wonderful staff in very good location (especially for the price!)
the rooms didn't smell good. There was a lot of noise in the alley and in the next rooms.
Nothing I burnt my leg taking a shower. I was cold. There was no central heating so I took a hot shower. The hotel said hey would refund me one night stay and have not done so. I spoke to bill and Mary and nothing. I'm very upset
The floors creeked everywhere you walked.
We were sight seeing and Bill gave us excellent advise on how to see the city. We had a late flight out of town and we were able to travel around town until early evening and they kept our luggage and arranged for our transportation to the airport.
Good location, good price. Bare bones. You get a room and a bathroom and that's about it. I usually see a room as a place to sleep, so it didn't bother me too much, but I could see how other people might be unhappy. No AC, no coffee machine, small room, old building, old plumbing.
Free parking that was not advertised They couldn't find out reservation at first. To enter their parking garage you need to run inside the hotel and tell them to press the button!
The hotel is centrally located near everything. The staff is nice and the facility is kept clean. No AC; and, we had to sleep with the windows open. While sleeping with the windows open is not bad, we had to put up with the noisy city life.
Staff was friendly and accomidating. My car was safe, and I could see it from my window. It did the job, I stayed by myself for 1 night anyways. It had a faint smell of... plastic?? I don't know what it was, but I smelled it. If you're coming with a family, I don't recommend going down Balboa. I got offered to buy weed by 3 different guys. PARKING ISN'T FREE ANYMORE! I paid 30$, but it was worth it. They close the gate, so I felt very safe leaving my car there.
My experience with the Embassy Hotel was terrible and a complete disappointment. The iconic part about the experience is that it had nothing to do with the actual stay because when myself and my friends arrived , we were informed that they overbooked and they were moving us to the Oasis Inn. When we got to the property, our room was run down compared to what we paid for a room at the Embassy Hotel and our bathroom toilet was clogged. In fact, the front desk attendant informed us that we should just unclog it ourselves. On top that, we were expected to pay the same rate as if we were staying at the Embassy Hotel. The rest of the evening of our first day of vacation was spent looking for another hotel. Overall, customer service at The Embassy Hotel was absent in that they didn't care where they placed us, unapologetic for overbooking, and didn't provide any compensation for their blunder. Bad customer service, mistreatment of the guests, and a lack of human compassion - that's the Hotel Embassy experience.
I liked the location for travel purposes, however the tv in our room did not work. Took a little complaining before we were relocated.
Terrible customer service. Rude.
It has HBO I think this hotel should be removed from booking.com. It is in a scary area, and: we couldn't sleep because there where men hanging around in front of our rooms' door for all night, and both rooms next to us where full of men talking loud and screaming. We felt scared and left the hotel in the middle of the night to find another hotel.
Close to everything, price was perfect!
No hot water for showers both mornings. Very loud, hard to relax and sleep. People talking loud, parking garage is below the rooms and not covered so you can hear people taking, car doors slamming, cats coming and going etc. The empty the garbage dumpster between 5am and 6am through the garage and that is very fricking loud. Walls are very thin and toy can hear people talking in the next room. Not a place to get rest and relaxation. Parking lot is small and you will most likely have to park on the streets which are full of homeless drunks and druggies.
The room looked and smelled like they just used cheap carpet powder. It had bedbugs and the staff was very rude!!
Only dislike was the fluctuating water temperature while showering.
good location older worn out building
Everybody was very nice, and I could take the pubic tranportations easily. The elevator was not clean
Room was clean very well and staff very helpfull good value for money. no
check in was a breeze the cockroach on the pillow .
room was very big and clean, staff friendly. Its not a brand new hotel but everything was clean. good value. the area is not great, but safe during the day. if you travel by car you are safe anyway, wouldn't recommend walking at night there.
good location, almost in downtown, big clean room hotel has only limited number of park places so if you come late (as we did) you must park on street which isn't for free.
The price and the free parking. Terrible internet service that did not work most of the time. Stairway smelled like urine. Rooms were kinda gross looking.
I know it's in SF but $150 a night is not worth it for this dump
Liked the price, the location was pretty good and a bus stop close by. A little out dated and could be cleaned better, attention to detail is not the hotels specialty.
Room, linens, and mattress were clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The gated parking area below the lobby made me feel more secure about leaving my vehicle overnight. The location was a short Uber ride from AT&T Park. It was a great spot to crash after a baseball game. I would stay again. The bed was definitely not luxurious or comfortable, but it served its' purpose. The inn is old, and could use some updating, but my room wasn't in disrepair.
Free parking. Walking distance to Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. Elevator to all levels, including parking garage. Cleaning service left us a bag of towels at our door even though we had do not disturb sign on door (most places skip cleaning when you have the sign up, but it was great they left us extra towels!). Wi-fi. Parking garage looked sketchy with old mattresses/junk laying around. No microwave/fridge. Outdated.
Nothing really We weren't informed that our room was flooded and that we had to go to another hotel which was very ghetto.
The location was nice right in the civic center. The best part by far and probably the reason I chose this hotel was for the Parking. It's free guest parking! There's potential in this hotel to be something better but it needs a lot of updates. The walls were paper thin, we heard music and regular conversation from the room next door at 2 am, I didn't want to complain - they weren't even being loud and obnoxious, just having normal volume levels of conversation - and yet you could hear it all! The room is outdated and furniture is not in great shape. Yelp wanted of bed bugs but we didn't encounter any! Still it isn't the kind of place where you would be surprised to find them. They should put some effort into making those hotel better - it feels like they tried to a decade ago and have since forgotten to keep it up.
Well located, but wish I would have spent the extra $40 to stay at the Motel 6 nearby. The shower was moldy and the beds uncomfortable.
-good location, its in the city itself -relatively cheap -the best part about this hotel is the FREE INDOOR PARKING, it is hard to find parking in SF, so it is a great place to leave your car in the parking lot and take public transportation or walk around. You can ask the front desk to close the gate for the parking lot at night, so nobody breaks into your car. -did not see any bed bugs -relatively quiet at night, it was March though -family friendly and secure for the most part -rooms are a bit outdated, but clean for the most part, you get what you paid for -rooms are a bit outdated, but not a big deal for me -not really the hotel's problem, but SF has a homeless problem....its very apparent about 2 blocks away from the hotel.
If you're looking looking for a relatively cheap (by SF standards) place to stay, the Oasis is a good choice. We found it clean, the beds were comfortable, and it had showers with ridiculously high flow shower heads that are true delight (if not highly against code!) - we're talking a gallon a second if you want it! It's located in a nondescript neighborhood that is relatively safe after dark - most cheaper rooms than this will put you in neighborhoods you do want to stay in. It's not really near anything of interest except the Civic Center area, but it's pretty easy to get anywhere by taxi or mass transit. There is a Burger King, a sushi joint of untested quality, a Wallgreen's, and a hooch and general vice store within 100 yards - so all your base needs are met. The place is old and run down. Very tired. Like you walk up to the front door and the automatic door is broken, so you have to slide the front door open by hand. But, past the front desk you walk into a tiny little courtyard with tables and chairs - and it does feel like your own little, relaxed and spartan sanctuary within the bustle of SF. So if you've got an open mind and half an ounce of adventure the place does have a certain charm. Think of all you can do with the $300/night you'll be saving versus a better, but nothing to write home about room you'd get elsewhere.
The location was centrally located and safe. I liked that they have free parking. Huge plus! Awesome water pressure. The hotel is dated. The door in the bathroom was swollen. Hard to shut. We didn't have fitted sheets. But again, for the price and location, it does the job.
Great location in the heart of San Francisco. Easy to locate and great walking distance to major bus stops. Saved a lot of money. Nearby sketchy neighborhood. Room had a huge water spot in the ceiling with wall and ceiling paint and debris coming off.
The hotel is nicely equipped and laid out. The room was nice, and I'd give the bed about a 5/10 in comfort. The staff was incredibly nice, saying hello to us every time we walked in, and goodbye every time we left. The included breakfast was fantastic, and that was a definite plus. They didn't have HGTV - that's a must when traveling! The location was pretty rough. I read about other travelers complaining that the location was bad, but I figured they were exaggerating. Ellis Street is pretty rough - lots of homeless people urinating and defecating on the sidewalks, but if you just skip Ellis and walk down another street to your destination, you'll be fine. There were a LOT of sirens going by the hotel each night, but I think that might have more to do with SF in general than just the Tenderloin District. Some of the loud noises at night might have been gunshots, but they also might have been dumpsters slamming. Some people say they wouldn't walk around at night, but it's actually not that bad. The homeless shelters open some time in the evening, so the later you're walking around, the less likely you are to actually encounter anyone.
given the rate, good and comfortable amenitiea scary to walk around at night
Clean room, good staff, wifi Bad area of town, had an issue with water pressure in our room, breakfast is strange and not good
They charged me $300 on a bogus charge saying we had extra people I our room. When I called and asked them about it, they refused to look into it and made me go through my credit card company instead. They didn't even notify me of the charges.I saw them on my credit card statement the following month. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!
The Staff was so kind, patient and helpful. They are what made my stay special. They are familiar with the area and local activities. We arrived super early and the staff held our bags, until we were able to check in, so we could start our sightseeing. The hotel was clean and we'll maintained. Great security and always felt safe (traveling as a mother and two teenage girls). Loved the shuttle service which was easily scheduled and on time. Room was comfortable and upgraded, which is hard to find in San Fran. WiFi was fast and no loss of connection. Highly rated and approved by teenagers. Housekeeping was great, efficient and cleaned room daily. Bottomline, I will stay again when I head back in September with my husband. I'll say location as a con because it is the "elephant in the room" on reviews. You can't change location so there's only so much to say. The Thing is, it's not that bad. My daughters and I walked to public trans during the day and used hotel shuttle when we returned at night. No problems at all throughout stay. Area is what you expect from any major downtown area. There were homeless in front of the $400 per night hotels too so why pay more. Only "issue" I had was at the restaurant where you have your continental breakfast. They changed the breakfast options in January, which aren't reflected on the menu. No eggs, no potatoes and replacement of items are scarce. You can turn in breakfast voucher (reportedly worth $18.75) plus pay $8.75 and get the breakfast you were promised. That's seems like the voucher isn't worth anything because the breakfast is only worth $8.75. Eitherway, the oatmeal got me going in the morning.
Free shuttles a few times a day. Staff was super helpful showing us best values for travel, food. Honestly can't say enough good things about the staff Rough area known as the tenderloin. I didn't mind and there were younger women on the sidewalk at night but area may be off putting for some
The hotel was very clean, room and bathroom are large, bed comfortable, and the staff was very helpful. The top 8th floor lounge was nice and relaxing. Overall for the area this was the best hotel. Shuttle service to local visitors sites as well.
We booked this hotel for the Haloween weekend. Despite being in the Tenderloin this was a really great hotel and we had a great stay. We didn't have any problems with the homeless people we had read about in previous reviews. It looked like there was a security guard in front of the hotel maybe making sure people weren't loitering. It was really easy getting an uber to get to where we were going. It was hot. Like really hot in the room. I know that air conditioners are not very common in san francisco but... maybe they could have left the balcony door open or something. It made getting our haloween costumes on kind of miserable. There were a couple fans to use but they didnt really help that much. Also, our toilet didn't really seem to work correctly.
Here are the things that stood out to me: Front desk staff - Specifically Latoya. I've stayed in many hotels in my life and I can honestly say that she's my all-time favorite. The whole group liked her. Professional but with a "friend" vibe. Easy to talk to and joke with. In a past life she was probably a bar tender because she has that ability to make you feel special by taking interest in whatever you have going on. Gave us great suggestions/feedback on nearby eateries (too bad we didn't get a chance to try Brenda's Creole Soul Food). She would be a big reason I'd stay at Cova again. The rooftop - So cool! I was there with a group of guys celebrating a bachelor party so we had to get our rooftop wolfpack pre-blackout toast on. #TheHangover The room - One of our rooms was a double queen and it was spacious and comfortable and most importantly clean. That bathroom faucet is a trip! I also found the benches in each room to be a nice touch that you don't get in most hotels. Location - It honestly wasn't anywhere near as bad as many of the reviews make it out to be. My group and I walked around a lot and never did we feel unsafe. I walked by myself once and it was like any big city; you're going to get a wide array of people, from bums to business people to locals to tourists. In fact, Cova and the international hostel next door gave the street a very international vibe. BTW, don't let the movie "Hostel" corrupt your view of hostels the way it did to me for a long time. This one looked like a hotel and there seemed to be many European and Asian tourists staying there. Also, many good restaurants nearby. Lers Ros Thai food was bomb, Mr Crave right in front of the hotel is a gem, and although we never got to try Brenda's Creole Soul Food, it HAS to be good because it was always packed with a line of folks willing to wait up to two hours.
Hotel itself looks nice, close to points of interest. The area surrounding the hotel was extremely rough and unsafe.
The staff was excellent, friendly and helpful throughout. Great rooftop terrace to go and enjoy the city view. If you could pick up the hotel and move it, that would make it better. While we were never harassed or felt in danger, the neighborhood was a bit sketchy. We heard gunshots in the middle of the night and saw a woman intimating on the sidewalk. We took lyft everywhere and didn't have an issue coming and going, however.
Friendly Staff, Clean Room, Downtown, reasonable rates. What more can you ask for?
It was really over priced for the an outdated room. The front desk clerk was really rude seem to be racist. It's really uncomfortable for a African American student. It's not a safe place. I stayed in room 230 House keeping did not change my sheets in the four days that I stayed. The microwave and the T.V. could not work at the same time. The t.v. had to be turned off in order to use the microwave. There was water damage in the bathroom. I was in a non smokers room but the room smelled like cigarettes.
I didn't feel safe First night people were knocking on my door all night Why? Most likely prostitutes or those high on meth First day coming back to my room a meth head was outside Hiden as I was opening my door I was surprised by him as he said hey most likely hooking for more meth money I highly don't recommend
The location was good for exploring the mission district First night there was a crime scene in the parking lot. Police everywhere dusting for finger prints. Next the walls were paper thin so you can hear everything happening next door from fights to people getting it on. People also hung around til 5 am screaming and smoking outside the doors in the hall way. No quiet hours were enforced. And finally, we opened up our door to a prostitute who had the wrong door number. Would never stay again.
Staff was kinda helpful after finally comin out to see the situation. UGh. Party people. DOORS have big cracks don't seal right. SLAMMED doors every 2 seconds. Bunch of white people calling each other niggah while drinking til 1am . Fighting which finally led to cops coming and shutting them up. Girls showing up half naked and running in and out of rooms. Hearing people bang for 2-3mins all night long.never again. Plus 15.00 parking and not enough parking. Pay the extra money and stay at double tree in Sout San Francisco
Better than anything else at the price.
Nothing. Rude clerk. Dirty room. Loud music played half the night. Bad experience.
Car mirror was stolen
Absolutely NOTHING. From The moment I arrived to check in until the time I departed the next day there was absolutely nothing at all that was even resembling a shred of accountability, courtesy, or customer service. This hotel has a problem with a rampant infestation of bedbugs. After only having been in the room for a a couple of hours total I was bitten in several different spots on my body. In the process I managed to actually catch one of the insects and promptly bagged it up in a small, clear, unused garbage bag. I immediately tied the bag shut and took the specimen down to the front office to register a complaint and seek some sort of explanation or at least an apology. Instead I was met with resistance. And, finally they claimed that there wasn't anything that they were going to do about the situation. Having had my luggage in the room and wanting to return home that day I was left with the chore of having to re-wash all of my clothes and treat my small rolling suitcase by having it put away in a cold storage for the next three days. This was costly and time consuming. Not to mention infuriating. That the staff at this hotel is fully aware of the problem and does NOTHING to abate the issue is not just concerning it should quite simply be illegal. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, for any reason. Anyone looking to spend a night in San Francisco will be better served to look elsewhere.
Location is great. A lot of walkable fun. The staff was rude. The AC didn't work and I brought it to their attention. They promised to not charge for the parking to make up for it, and then they charged me anyway. Just a super disappointing and overall bad experience. For the price you would think you were getting something at least half way decent.
I liked the location of this plus the fact that you had access to parking which is $15.00 per day. The cable for our TV didn't work, the TV wouldn't turn on at times, an employee had to come to my room to attempt to fix it and was in our room for a good 20 minutes, and the people in the hotels next door sound like they're right next to you. These walls must be very cheap, it's a very loud area so I don't recommend this area if you plan to get a good night sleep.
clean room, got everything you need, fast wifi there was a weird charge on my card, called them for three times, every time they said will get back to me but they never do. I have to come to the lobby waiting for 20 min finally to get a chance to talk to manager.
Not much actually. Man at frontdesk does'nt like his job.
clean, good location ,cheap, basic.Small breakfast, limited parking, stuff like they were angry all the time, not friendly at all stuff
Nothing. Literally nothing. Everything. Literally everything. This could be the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. Drug dealers only.
confort, breakfast included localization near a street that look as unsafe
The staff were extremely helpful You need a refridgerator and micro wave
Close to downtown and shopping center. Breakfast in the morning. Wi-fi available in the room.
It's location Parking is limited
The room was clean, modern funiture and well-tended the urban enviroment was not the best
Friendly staff at check-in. Free local calls could be made from the room. Breakfast was tasty although it did take us a few trips to carry food from downstairs up to room - but the waffles were delicious. Seemed to be in a part of town with some "characters" in the street, but we didn't feel bothered/ unsafe in any way, and could walk to sights of interest: Union Square, Fisherman's Wharf. Checked out very early and staff emailed final bill. Good tasty food at nearby restaurants. Confusingly, the hotel had lots of "Comfort Inn" logos on towels/brouchures, etc and our shuttle driver claimed that the hotel had changed it's name in the last week and therefore it took him longer to find it (as he had to use the street address rather than knowing the hotel).
Location, free parking and clean room Stuff could be more polite
It was extremely clean, there is free parking and internet and it is quite centrally located.
The set up of the hotel was great. There is a heated pool on the middle, with swimming up until midnight. You can still swim even when it very cold outside. All the room doors face each other, which makes for a fun, friendly atmosphere. The eatery on site is AMAZING! I'm not kidding when I say this, it was probably one of the best places I've eaten. It's filled with old record albums and has a cool, sexy vibe. My husband was playing in a show/concert that night so we were all able to walk to the Regency Ballroom...it's very close. To have free parking right outside so you have access to your car is almost unheard of and very convenient. This is the place for fun, and they do quiet everything down after midnight. Don't go here for peace and relaxation though. It is not for that. It's for fun swimming, good accommodations, location, eating and enjoying life. The staff was amazing and we really appreciated them being so nice and welcoming. They seemed genuinely happy to see us..for real! For a fun night out in the city this is now my go to place and if that's what your looking for this is the best spot. I also saw a bunch (I mean about 5 groups) of bachelorette parties. This a super place for that and for eating brunch or going out for drinks. Only drawback is it could use some minor updating, but not enough to not want to stay there. It's overpriced a bit but so is every place in SF. It's worth the money so get your bathing suit, or not, and go rock out!
The staff were great - very friendly and very helpful. The hotel is surrounded by gangs, drug dealers, prositiutes, homeless people, drunks and drug addicts. Quite the walk home. An overpriced motel in a bad neighbourhood,
Hotel has a nice out fashioned look to it. It was well maintained and clean. The hotel provided a very simple complimentary breakfast. The hotel is located in a bad neighborhood so we didn't really feel safe walking outside it. The price was too high given the quality of rooms and location.
Very friendly and individual stuff members. Very cool ambient.
Hotels eco efforts and the super staff appreciated. Windows can't really be shut tight so the heat and noise can be an issue.
Very clean, comfortable beds, nice washroom, refregerator, close to seaside. Brekfest poor, self served at reception.
I like to be serviced with the good manner by chinese room cleaning women. They all are really good.
The manager was really friendly, location is perfect - only short walk to the city centre, parking available at site. The area is a bit shaby, not really safe I guess. Continental breakfast is not really what was offered, more just coffeebuns and coffee.
The hotel was clean and conveniently located for a 5 minute bus ride to Moscone Center. The hotel is in a dangerous part of town.
Free internet access. Free parking. Room clean. Poor breakfast. Not fancy neighborhood.
Great location, Clean, Even though it was on a busy street the rooms were very quiet.
I didn't like anything of this hotel. It was not clean, the staff wasn't friendly and sometimes the staff wear pyjamas. In front of the rooms there were sometimes wanderers in front of the hotelroom. The prices of the hotelroom was too expensive.
In spite of the location, my off-street room was surprisingly quiet
free internet and free parking included in price rooms are a bit worn down
The position is good considering the proximity to town center. Parking facility ok The position is bad since the area is filled with beggar and bad faces, particularly during late evening. The structure would need a general refurbishment
I was pleasantly surprised at what good value for money it was being so conveniently located to downtown San Francisco. Free parking too. I was given a smoking room rather than a non smoking.
Friendly staff, comfortable beds, big rooms
it was close to Slim's, which was good because that's the reason we booked a room there. there's a bar across the street where we got drunk. that was cool. the parking lot smelled like urine.
I appreciated the proximity of the facility to the building in which I attended a conference. I was able to walk there if necessary, or be transported with ease by colleagues. The rooms were clean and well-arranged. I was prepared for typical downtown noise and heard very little of that. I felt safe on the property. My only criticism concerns the breakfast offered. I think for the price that perhaps a few selections could be added without "breaking the bank," e.g., a griddle or waffle maker or variety of fruit.
renovated bed rooms with nice decor & comfortable bed; clean close to Hayes Valley, a true SF neighborhood currently under construction, paint works going on resulting in smells & noise; NOT disclosed on web site prior to booking! close to projects; doors are open during cleaning/painting and homeless people wandering around the lot, resulting in safety concerns; no safe in room bathrooms need renovation, stained tub and toilet; 70s decor night staff rude, seemed to have little hospitality training/experience
I like how the front desk guy told me, since I stay here so much I should know when they advertise free parking they mean some time or when available. But, I didn't know in fact it is the reason I stayed loyal to the motel. I feel more of an effort should have been made to keep my reservation, instead he shrugged me off and I un check in and stayed at the same if not better motel on Lombard for a lower price and parking for all there guests. I didn't like the mis advertising of free parking. You should state limited free parking.
The free parking and destinations within a few blocks. Not much in the immediate vicinity.
