We were very happy with our room. Parking was easy. So many great restaurants in walking distance. I was there for a surgery at UCSF, it was very close and easy to get to UCSF. There was a cute window alcove looking out over Mel's Dinner. We sat in the window and watched traffic go by. Sheets, pillows, blanket, towels were all clean.

The hotel looked nice. The check in was smooth. When we walked into the room it smelled like something had died in there. I searched for the source of the smell, and I was disgusted by the smell when I turned down the covers. It appeared that human feces were smeared on the bottom sheet. I left and paid to stay somewhere else nearby.

Dear Guest, You were a “no show to our hotel” and never stayed, and you threatened to publish a fabricated review and tarnish our reputation if we did not waive your cancellation fee. You said, “You forgot that the customer is always right. It would have been cheaper for you to just refund the one night since it was canceled more than 24 hours in advance. Now it is going to cost you in future bookings when they see all my bad reviews... haha!” We understand that your plans changed and you were unable to travel to San Francisco. However, you booked a non-refundable reservation through a third party (Booking.com) which is the lowest priced option and does not offer much flexibility, regardless of when you cancelled. We all appreciate a good deal, but sometimes paying slightly more for the refundable option is worth the peace of mind. Our staff was kind enough to waive your cancellation charge if you could provide evidence of travel restrictions or postpone your reservation to a future date for a reasonable fee of $25. Due to the pandemic, we have learned to operate with greater sympathy and are willing to work with our guests. Instead, you refused to cooperate and posted a negative review about finding “human feces” in your bed, even though you never stayed here. We do not mind negative feedback because everyone is entitled to their own opinion and we are open to learning from our mistakes. But we feel the need to respond and clarify this situation, since you never stayed at our hotel at all and continued messaging us and taunting us about this review.

I purchased the deluxe King room. It was anything but deluxe. It was directly across from the Ice machine which kept us up all night. When I complained to the front desk they just said "to bad". No offer to reduce price, only a tough luck attitude. DO NOT STAY HERE unless you expect to be kept awake all night.

It's a nice looking and clean property almost identical with all the other motels along Lombard, but this particular one has a massive road construction project going on alongside of it that might be the noisiest construction site I've ever been on, much less tried to sleep in. As always, I asked the strangely uncommunicative receptionist to give me and my kids two "quiet rooms." Woke up this morning to a giant pounder and two storey-ashphalt machine buzzing hammering and making crazy noise appearing in my window, manned by workers with massive headgear to protect their ears. Alas, I only had a single pain of glass between me and the guy. I will be asking Hotels.com for a refund. This level of noise shouldn't be legal and this hotel should not be open during construction.
