Signs of aging in terms of decor and furniture but very clean and equipped with comfortable beds. I would recommend for tourist visitors.

This hotel was very convenient. It's near the Fisherman's Wharf. And the Hop On Hop Off bus picks up passengers at the corner. It worked perfectly for us. The buffer breakfast was also good. But the best thing about this hotel , was the very helpful staff. They go out of their way to assist you. Thank you.

Great location”

Location is near the Wharf, near the two cable-car end-points of Hyde and Mason - taking either train will get you to walking distance of the hotel and obviously to the toan areas of SF!

Do ask for a room that does not face the back-alley which was assigned to us - where the garbage trucks or loading/unloading of supplies to the hotel or neignbouring shops were very noisy in the middle of the night, and it was facing on of the Beach Street which had many cars and trucks and emergency vehicles flowing thru, which was disturbing, and it also faced an opposite hotel, where the tour buses would be... Not a very peaceful overnote rest after a 21 hour flight! But nevertheless a very nice hotel, even if a bit old.

location is awesome!”

It is located near fishermans wharf. It is comfortable with good facilities at a resonable rate compared to others. The reason why I chose this hotel is located in a safety area. But outside of it, the bar(night club) runs every day. I wasn't able to sleep until 3 am. ( It was closed at 3 am!!!) but staff was really kind, helped me change room right after my request!!

Good base to visit San Francisco highlights”

We spent 4 nights at this hotel before leaving for Yosemite. It was a fab base and very comfortable. The room was a little dated and the windows let In a lot of the noises outside at night (quite close to a night club). Our room rate was a lot more than stated on Agoda and the guy in reception was not keen to sort the issue out for us. He tried to fob us off with reasons why we had to pay the increased rate. It got sorted in the end (I think because I am an Gold Elite member of IHG) but we had to be persistent and it took about an hour to sort it out. All good in the end though.

I liked this hotel for its location. Its ideal for family with kids. Ghirardelli chocolates, restaurants like Denny's, In and Out burgers, chipotle were all within walking distance. We rented bicycles down the road from the hotel and rode all the way to golden gate bridge. Safe for cycling, even to the city via the pier road.
