The location works well for me, and for the most part, the price fits my budget. I used BART and a bus to get to the hotel and walked from there to various points of interest nearby. Best of all, the Amtrak station is within walking distance, too. Oh, yes, my bed was comfortable.
The main thing for me was that the room was cold, and there seemed to be no way to turn on the heat. No extra blankets in the room either. For me, this is a pretty big deal, since it could create a health concern even for a healthy person. The phone had no dial tone. Lamp electrical outlets didn't work. Yes, you can hear the trains passing by, but it wasn't too big of a deal if you like trains.
My stay was very good. The bed was comfortable. TV was good. Internet was stable. I was able to work in peace
There was no heat at the hotel. The management did provide space heater for those who requested one.
The deposit online is less then when you go to the site. They have a $150 deposit. Not $50 - $100!
The location was perfect.
The morning check out woman was unpleasant.
no heat it was freezing and the halls stunk it looked hunted
