Location, staff were very friendly.
Our room smelled incredibly strongly of bleach, it was nauseating. Room was tiny and difficult to air out, they couldn't move us to a different room but provided a fan. Window did not have a screen, so we weren't comfortable leaving the window open to air out when we were out for the day.
You're paying for the location, which is great if you need the Wharf, the Marina, or the Van Ness corridor. Reasonably comfortable place... Convenient and safe, with a courteous staff.
Kind of dismal on the style/upkeep. Beaten up furniture, scuffs on walls... but it didn't have a dirty or unsanitary feel. Ice machine was broken. Not bad, just underwhelming.
The location, cost and parking.
Tired, worn out and broken fittings. The breakfast was very basic.
Close to what I was doing!
Nothing , everything was clean and safe.
Big room a little dated ok for a short stay, on bus route
OK for a town Hotel , parking a little tight but free
