I stayed four nights. First of all, if you use Golden Gate Transit and have a hard time walking, please be aware the hotel is several blocks from the nearest bus stop in any direction.

This place is clearly just getting milked for all its worth this place could have used an update 10 years ago now this place is really screaming out for an update. You could feel holes in the subfloor just below the carpet. Total joke of a hotel.
