    Good

    Staff was very friendly and efficient.

    Hotel is somewhat dated, with old-looking furniture in the rooms and beat-up carpets in the hallways. Continental breakfast very limited, with no cereal or milk. Lots of junk exposed in the cramped hotel parking lot.

    Superb

    Great location, rooms had "character" and charming city atmosphere.

    I did not think I should have been charged extra for amenities such as refrigerator and a microwave would have been nice

    Very good

    The hotel has free parking and wireless network. My room was quiet to the back. It is a 45 minutes walk to the Market Street area.

    I asked at the reception if they could keep my laptop safe but since it did not fit the deposit boxes they declined and I ended up leaving it in the trunk of the car. I had to get up at 4:30am in order to catch a 7am flight. I tried to program the radio alarm clock in the room which turned out to be defect. I then asked for a wake up call which worked fine but I was a bit nervous that I had to rely on this.

    The hotel location was within walking distance to many of the tourist locations in the city. The hotel was clean and comfortable and well priced.

    It's continental breakfast was very weak. Very little to choose from and nowhere to sit (4 seats available for the entire hotel).

    Very good

    Good location close to union street and fishermans Wharf. Decent choice of muffins and croissants for breakfast. Free parking is another big bonus in San Francisco

    Horrible air conditioning. Whatever temperature one would set it would work for five min and then be off for 15 to 20 and the compressor would go off and on right through disturbing sleep. This was not a problem to one room but a system installed in all rooms to conserve bills but at a great nuisance and inconvenience to guests.

    Proximity to Fisherman's Wharf / Pier 39, art galleries, lovely restaurants in Union Street which we found quite by chance (hotel staff could promote Union Street more). Glad we had a rear room, traffic noise could have been a problem in the front.

    Bathroom and vanity could have been cleaned better. Breakfast pretty basic.

    Very good

    The location of this Hotel is Excellent. Not 5 star but clean which is the main thing.

    The traffic noise is bad and goes on all through the night. Not of course the Hotels fault but could be improved if the windows had better double glazing.

    Superb

    This hotel was clean and comfortable. It was only about a mile from Fisherman's Wharf which we walked several times. Also, very close to bus stops. Breakfast and parking and internet were included so there were no extra charges which was a plus.

    Parking was a little tight. Small car recommeded.
