A good value

It's a good value for the money. We even found meter parking outside. You don't have to pay the meters after 6:00pm on a Saturday and until noon on Sunday. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. There was no view though. It's an older hotel with "antique" like decorations so not everything feels brand new. There was a slight air-freshener smell that I didn't care for but a least everything seemed clean. At times we could hear the neighbors through the walls but it wasn't too bad. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who needs an inexpensive hotel in San Francisco in a decent neighborhood.

Great location

This hotel was clean, comfortable and historic. It was also small, which made it quiet. If you want to feel as if you are staying in a townhome in Nob Hill this is the place. It is also within walking distance (easy) to shopping at Union Square. Very charming. Great price for the location.

Awful room

Room was roasting hot, with no temperature controls. Lobby music came up through the floor all night long. "Fitness Center" is a joke. Good thing the place is really cheap. 3 stars is misleading at best - more like a 1 or 2 star flophouse.
