          The hotel is quite compact however it provides in room shower, compared to other hotels where it is a shared-bathroom with this price range. It is adequate enough for a quick stay because its location is at the center of all interesting spots. San Francisco is an expensive city, and this hotel gives affordable staying option.

          the room was small and a little bit smelly, but when I opened the window, it hepled alot. really basic hotel, all you need is to store the bags and have fun in the SF, and get back when you are tired - sleep well there. the front desk staffs were really helpful, he showed me how to get to the local cheap restaurant, the buses and everything tht you need to know about the area. in a walking distace is union square, cable car station and bus station that can take you to everywhre. it was really really nice for us.

          Through my stay of about a week, I noticed that there were cleaners who consciously clean the common area. Except for the noises at night caused by siren from the fire engines (the rooms are not sealed as the windows are opened to outside directly), this is a great hotel with basic facilities, wonderful if you just want a place to sleep and bathe. The beds are comfortable and there is hot water. For the noise, just bring along ear plugs and you will be fine.

          Location.
          I really liked the location and the rooms were decent. I'm used to small rooms (like in Japan) so this room size was perfect. Important things to me are good shower, comfy bed, decent location. All were met. Only minor complains: bed could be a little too soft for some people, additional door bolt did not work, but I didn't really feel insecure. Food places available just outside hotel so no issues with food.

          Location, cleanliness, and Staff
          I've stayed at the Union Square Plaza Hotel a number of times and each time I'm thoroughly satisfied. The hotel has one of the best locations in the city for Union Square and for the price you cannot beat it. The staff has always been polite, understanding, and flexible. The only drawback is that many of the rooms have different sized bathrooms. For me and my travel companions that was not a problem, but if you like a large bathroom, occasionally the Union Square Plaza Hotel will provide you with a small (and I mean small) bathroom. Otherwise, it is a great place to stay for a price you absolutely cannot beat.

          we stayed at the union square plaza hotel a few nights. the vicinity to public transportation and union square is great. the hotel is aged, but that has given this 7 floor hotel character. the staff are very friendly and flexible. if you want to sleep in, i'd recommended getting a room away from the street, but then you'll miss out on the street performances. i would definitely stay at the union square plaza hotel again. great location and great bang for your buck.

          Budget friendly, location
          when we first got to union square plaza, our first thought was that the room was incredibly small. the place is a bit dated, and it needs refurbishing, but we were on a budget and in the end, it sas worth what we paid for. hotels in union square area are really expensive, we're glad to have found a hotel conveniently located within our budget. internet was supposed to have charge, but since we stayed for three nights the front desk clerk gave us the password for free. since it's located at union square, there are a lot of restaurants nearby. we noticed there are a lot of people lining up at the japanese restaurant beside the hotel. all the time. we did noy get to try it though... despite the hotel being dated and it gave us the feeling that the hotel wasnt really clean, we got fresh linen daily and fresh towels, so it isn't so bad. we might stay again. not bad for travellers on a budget who wants just the basic room.

          Yes, this is one of the few hotels you can book in this area that has its' own bathroom and shower (not shared), for a decent price, but there is no AC. Having been to SF many times before, there isn't much of a need for it if you have a window open. So the room we had (210) was facing the backside of an alley and ALL types of people were back there doing ALL types of things- mostly dumpster diving. Not to mention, the radiator (heater) was on and could not be turned off- the valve was broken and the maintenance guy could not fix it nor could we change rooms because it was sold out that weekend. The staff was friendly and helpful for the most part and the location is great and convenient, but try to avoid a room on the backside facing the alley if at all possible or spend more than twice the amount and go to the Marriott around the block.

          The hotel is very outdated: old uncomfortable mattresses and hard rock pillows. cracked tile in the bathroom, and ripped dirty carpet, plush the shower had almost no water pressure. The location is close to shopping and Union square plaza, but it is very noisy at night with people screaming profanities in the streets. Will definitely not recommend staying there.
