This hotel is really set in the worst part of town. There were fights, drugs, and prostitution right out front of our hotel in broad daylight, as well as the middle of the night. Cops were on our street regularly. The rooms were clean, but there was an awful air freshener smell every day that made us sick. Our light in the bathroom shut off all the time (esp while in the shower) and the walls were very thin. It was hard to sleep many nights because it was so loud. The towels were old and full of holes and the curtains were torn. We were told they would be fixed, but they were not. We would definitely not stay here again. We would rather stay much farther from Union Square and use public transit.

What a disappointment! The pictures on the website are very misleading. The hotel staff got us lost 2 times giving us directions to the hotel. They were extremely slow, not very amicable, and had no sense of urgency when a line was forming for check-ins. The "continental" breakfast was a joke! You get to the counter and they hand you a vending-machine wrapped pastry and old orange juice and one cup of coffee that you had to ask for. the rooms were tiny. the gap between the bed & tv console only allowed room for an anorexic. I will never ever come back and have only poor comments for this crap-hole. And, to top it off, there is NO parking, unless you consider the parking garage that charges $20 overnight parking.

First time staying at the hotel. The area was a bit scary at first sight, right on the border of the Tenderloin, but if you stayed on the right street, all was good. Only complaint is that there could have been a bigger breakfast and safe deposit boxes in the room.

The hotel itself is not bad, only a couple of blocks from union square, and plenty to do within walking distance. my main issue, is probably more to do with the city than the hotel, there seemed to be crack heads all over the city centre, if i ever went back i would stay near the bay, it seemed a bit more lively there.
