Parking was available if a little cramped. A simple breakfast of pastries and cakes was on hand with hot drinks. Easy to get downtown by car. Close to pick up point for Big Bus city tour which was really handy.
Road noise might be a problem for some being close to a busy highway but didn’t bother us. Decor dated and stained from heavy use. This is a constant gripe in the US - no hotels we visited (mostly budget accommodation) came up to the standard of Premier Inn, our UK budget yardstick.
+ Affordable, + Right off the highway
- This was literally the slowest check-in in my entire life. The receptionist took 20 minutes to process two guests who did not have a prior booking, which is generally fine by me, as long as it gets done quick, which was not the case. - The building is old and soundproofing is bad, you can practically hear every passing vehicle. It might not be a problem to some, but I find it hard to sleep through. - In the winter it gets pretty cold, and the only option is to run the heater all night, which means dry air and stuffy nose in the morning. - The breakfast was set up in the lobby, which was 10m2 in area and did not have any sitting, meaning you come in, get your pastry, some instant coffee and get out
The location was great for tourists. The bathroom was big. Free parking was wonderful.
The carpet was damp when we checked in. The room was tight for 4 guests. Traffic noise was pretty loud.
The bed was incredible
Great location for a great price. Just down the road from the crooked street. Walking distance to Fisherman’s Wharf and the Cable Cars. The staff were very friendly.
The road is super busy next to the hotel and it is very loud in the room. The very bad thing was the noticeably wet carpet with a musty smell in the room. Not good enough really. It must have been wet for a while because I’ve noticed other reviews have mentioned it.
