Great location with a friendly staff Very nice hotel with a very friendly staff. We enjoyed being in that part of San Francisco. The rooms are small and our room did not have a view. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The lobby is small but very comfortable.

So many accommodations that go ...

Great location, great staff! It's a very good hotel for the price. The location is in the heart of Union Square, and you can easily move around the city from there. Be sure to ask for the free breakfast bag (per person) from 6am to 8am. The bag includes: a bagel, an apple juice, a bag of mixed nuts, and 1 apple. If you need ...

Check-in was easy and we were escorted via golf cart to our room. We'd requested an ocean-front room and it was lovely. Right on the beach, overlooking the surf ...
