Tourist Worst nightmare!

Posted Oct 18, 2014
Pros: the 30 Camera's watching the building.
Cons: Way to much to tell here. And there are several thing per the guide line of what I can say here that I can not even talk about.
Location: Things to do! World famous O'Farrell theater, other porn theaters and strip clubs, Massage parlors, head shops.
I am not allowed to tell about my experience per the guide lines about what I may say here. But lets just say this place is a rip off. you must pay the full amount in advance. and there is no refunds. the rooms leave a lot to be desired. The place promised wifi in the add. and there is none.

Don't do it

Posted Oct 11, 2014
Really bad area of San Fransico. You don't want to walk in this area at night. The window screens were torn right by the door. As though someone had ripped it to reach in a open the door to break in. Wouldn't tell anyone to stay here. Spend the extra money to go elsewhere.

This was NASTY

Posted Oct 6, 2014
Sirens, gunshots, and drug deals, oh my. I actually enjoyed (really!) that they gave space to the homeless all around. My room, well, please don't go there.

I had no problems with this hotel. My room was on the third floor facing Ellis Street. My room was what I expected from a no frills budget motel. It provided all the necessities and was clean. The bathroom looked as though it had been recently remodeled. The carpet in the room looked relatively new. The flat screen TV had good reception. Some of the furniture was a little worn, but not enough to be concerned with. The staff was always friendly and helpful. I was not awakened or disturbed by any of the other guests during the nine days that I stayed there. This hotel is located in the Tenderloin district. As in all cities, please be aware of your surroundings at all times, and use common sense with the display of valuables and CELL PHONES when walking on the streets.

Fun stay

Posted Sep 27, 2014
Pros: It was close to coffee and good food venues. It is in a colorful neighborhood. The desk clerk "Andy" was a large asset to my stay.
The overall stay was very pleasant and the staff was very accommodating.

Roon unsatisfactory

Posted Sep 22, 2014
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything
Location: Must have been the worst part of town
I had requested the top floor and was given the second, not knowing there was a third, was moved to the third. What a dump. The only good thing was the water pressure in shower and the water was hot! No washclothes, had to ask and was told this room did not come with clothes, can you imagine? No ice in the motel, had to go across the street to another motel to an ice machine!! It was worse than a motel 6. We would never stay there again.

Just Fine For Sleeping

Posted Sep 7, 2014
Pros: The location and the price
Cons: I wish the bed was more comfortable since that was the only thing that the room could be used for
Location: Go to Tommy's Joynt for the best pastrami and beer selection in the city. Bring cash!
Look. This hotel's location is not for the brave of heart. It is smack in the good ol' Tenderloin area which is where the highest concentration of community outreach centers are, hence, there's a hell of a lot of homeless and otherwise shady characters congregating. But I knew this in advance and I wasn't in San Francisco so I could hole up in my hotel room in my spa bathrobe on 800 count sheets and watch cable on a 72" TV all day. I was in San Francisco so I could be outside, urban exploring and sight-seeing. With that in mind, this hotel served it's purpose just fine: it was for sleeping. It wasn't comfortable and it was spartan but it was clean (I think). The staff was kind (front desk and housekeeping). The price was right for what I needed. I would recommend bringing a pair of earplugs and a sleeping mask as the walls are paper thin and there's always a ruckus on Ellis street. There's a CVS not far up the street if you forget and a BevMo! for alcoholic beverages and a Trader Joe's for some pantry snacks. Upon arrival, check the hotel room to make sure you have enough towels and pillows and if you don't, the front desk staff is more than willing to give you more. Also, the lights in the room and bathroom are on timers so they will turn off from lack of motion - just stick your arm out of the shower and wave to turn them back on. Or, since Cali is in a drought, maybe it's time to get out anyway. Enjoy your stay in the very rhythm of the soul of San Francisco
