    Rooms are fine... But breakfast is à real joke. Run to Starbucks instead!

    Great service, modest but clean accomodations. Be early for breakfast to avoid the crowd.

    Absolutely clean & nice place. There's a full restaurant aside with an entrance right on the lobby.

    Rates are fair for a downtown location. The hotel is old but they keep it fairly clean. The breakfast is a goddamn joke, though, not worth your time. Parking is pricey too.

    A Very good hotel for what I am paying for, breakfast is perfect for a continental breakfast, secure parking, a lot of homeless around the area, nothing to worry about, close to some attractions

    I have no idea why there is negative comments about the breakfast as I found it to be a good complimentary breakfast. Fruit, bagels, bread, yogurt, muffins, eggs, juice, and of course coffee.

    Walk up the street a few blocks to California and take the cable car

    I think ppl are making shit up. I have not seen one bug in the room or hotel for that matter.

    Nice hotel, larger room and bathroom for the price than I'm used to in SF. Near the "Tenderloin" area, but if you don't walk East you'll be in good areas of the city.

    Rooms are fine, skip the brunch better off dining somewhere else..parking is expensive..$20/12hr periods.. Best thing about this hotel is its location; close to most attractions.

    Nice hotel for a fair price. Secure parking for $25 a day. Central located downtown however not the most clean place of the city.

    My room has roaches. I can see them crawling on the curtains and one tried to get into my water glass. Eew

    L'hotel ha un aspetto vecchio, camere pulite ma bagno moooolto piccolo! La cosa deludente è la COLAZIONE: veramente minima!

    O hotel tem quartos bons e fica bem localizado. Evite o Metro principalmente à noite. O café da manhã é bem fraquinho.
