The owner Carlos is a very accommodating manager whom gave me a very quiet room with a refrigerator and I will stay there again
The manager of the hotel was nice, but that is it. Hopefully, after the remodel things will be much better, but even a 70% improvement wouldn't be enough for me to ever stay here again.
The worst hotel I've ever stayed in in my entire life. Located in a rough area of the city. If you arrive on BART and attempt to walk tot the hotel, DO NOT DO SO AFTER DARK, especially as a woman. My (female) friend and I were catcalled for 15 minutes straight, walking through areas heavily populated with homeless individuals and many high or mentally ill people. Pillows and sheets were dirty with finger prints on them and musty smell. No mirror in the entire hotel. No air conditioning or heating and the window had no screen on it, but we decided to leave it open anyways because the room was so warm and damp. At one point, we asked the front desk for a blanket, and the man went into his filthy living quarters (covered in food, trash, and God knows what else) and picked up a ragged, dirty blanket off the floor, rolled it up into a misshapen ball, and handed it to us. We were going to ask for an additional pillow but didn't bother after that. One of my friends found this hotel so disgusting, she only lasted one night before leaving early and going home. The only good thing about staying here is that it's made a good story I can tell to people if I want to gross them out. After getting home, I took a longggggg hot shower and just tried to forget the entire experience.
The room itself was updated and pretty nice. Half of the outlets in the room didn't work. The room was very hot. So much so we bought a fan for the second night. Also, I don't think it was bed bugs, but something in the bed bite us a lot both nights. Honestly if not for the bug bites and the heat in the room, the score would be much much higher. The neighborhood is good. We ended up not having to pay for parking at night. And the updates that have been done thus far are nice enough... Though the cable didn't work either...
Nothing can be consider positive.
The whole hotel is askew. If you place a bottle on the ground, it will roll to the side of the slope. The hotel owner reconstructs it during operation. There are cables from the ceiling. Some rooms are completely demolished. There are workers everywhere. During the day a lot of noise. There's dust everywhere. The rooms on the second floor are very warm, you can not sleep there. Part of the common sanitary facilities is ok, the rest dirty, you don t want to enter even use it. Beddings is dirty, we had someones hair in bed. The location is also crazy. A street full of homeless people.
