Pros: convenient
Cons: Make sure a none smoker room is true to that.
Location: good location.
Requested a none smoking room. The room was given but their has been smokers in room. There were varies cleaning products and air fresheners used to camouflage the smoke, which I was able to smell in the room. The room was presented clean other than the smoke smell.

We had a nice stay with all as expected. The room had all the necesities and was comfortable. Convenience to BART made it a good option for traveling into SF. Check in and check out were easy with friendly staff. We had to change our reservation, checking out earlier than expected, and had no problem.

Wouldn't return!

Honestly I wouldn't return to this hotel for several reasons. Sad to say, our first room was a bust. There was underwear in the drawer and a roll of foil. The reason we saw that is because we were looking for the phone which was missing! We thought maybe they put it in the drawer! Someone had drawn a picture on the lid to the ice bucket. There was no clock in the room at all. The pillow cases looked really used and old, and just dirty! Didn't want to touch anything, it was as though they just didn't clean it, and it smelled bad! We moved to another room that smelled fresher and was cleaner! My other issue was we were on the second floor we had no idea that the hotel had no elevators! That really made a difficult situation for us to take our luggage upstairs. That should be stated loud and clear, there are NO ELEVATORS! The restrooms are really small, there were no mats in the tubs at all. So be careful of slipping down, and no bars to hold on to! There were just things missing that should be present for safety reasons. I also traveled with two other guests who had their own rooms. One of the guests room smelled of marijuana the whole time! The second day the hotel staff busted in, stating she needed to fill a whole in the wall. No warning at all, just used her key and walked in! Well we later found out that there were mice in the room, that opened up cookies and ate some. She heard papers rattling on the top of the dresser, and the mice were walking through the coffee tray.

Pros: Close to the place where I'm attending.
Cons: Clean linens
Location: Too much graffiti's around, it doesn't feel safe around.
Linens/towels are stained, does not look clean at all.
