Frank R. Solo travelers United States of America, April 5, 2015
Great option as opposed to the big business hotels

clean rooms, great location, good value
The location is just a few blocks away from the big hotel chains and you get so much more value for your money. The room was really nicely done and the comforters clean and warm. For the price I expected a lot less and Hotel California really exceeded my expectations. Yes, the room is small but you're in San Francisco! It was perfectly cosy for sleeping.

Steven L. Couples United States of America, December 7, 2014

pineapple scent, friendly staff, close to union square
I couldn't get any sleep during my stay due to the combination of the noisy pipes, noisy streets, malfunctioning temperature control, creaky bedposts, lumpy hard pillows, and thin walls. On top of that, the hotel is really expensive without included parking. It definitely didn't feel like 3 stars, and I certainly had to pay way more than the room's value. I didn't know I was such a picky sleeper... so at least I learned something about myself.

Decor was different but cool.
Overall very good stay! Didn't eat at the restaurant, but tons of local dining. Staff was helpful and maids cared about service. Recommend doing what we did which was NOT renting a car. SF is easy to get around. Definitely recommend the Hotel California!

Centrally located but poor than rated and pictures

Centrally located
The hotel was poor than info provided on the site. Location is very good but interior was very bad. Only 1 elevator and it's poorly activate as well. Room is very small, ac cannot be control at all. No fridges in the room, bathroom is small and wifi is not stable. Surroundings are pretty convenient but the noise is very loud, and won't stop until 2am or even later. Breakfast was very bad and also unorganized. If I have to recommend a hotel, I would say the area is good but I won't stay in this place again.

Superb location

Clean and decent rooom, great location, many restaurants nearby
The stay was quite alright. Surprisingly, my room on the third floor was rather quiet despite located on a busy street. Maybe it's the facing.
